Temperatures are warming up outside, the sun is shining, the snow has finally melted; The long-awaited spring season is finally here. Chances are, after a long winter of being cooped up inside, you’re not the only one that can’t wait to get outside! Your dog is probably running in circles wagging his tail, grabbing his own leash, and waiting for you by the door to go out and play! Here are a few fun activities you can do with him outside this spring to get him moving, and even learn some new tricks.
Set up a DIY Obstacle Course
Working on your dogs agility and tricks doesn’t have to involve any fancy equipment or facility. Use household items that you already have to make a DIY obstacle course in your backyard; Set up lawn chairs, hula hoops, cardboard boxes, and other objects to make a safe and fun course to challenge your dog. You’ll both enjoy some fresh air outside, and he may even learn some new tricks along the way!
A day at the Beach
It may not be bathing suit weather just yet, but that doesn’t mean you and your pup can’t enjoy a fun adventure to the beach! Grab a tennis ball, frisbee, soccer ball, and any other toys to play with. Your dog will love having some open space to finally run around freely and stretch his legs. He might even be brave enough to splash around in the water for a bit!
This one might benefit you even more-so than your dog, but he’ll still have fun! Cleaning out the closet can be a great way for you to get rid of some old stuff you don’t need, and create new toys for your pup to play with. You can use a few old shirts to tie together for a game of tug-o-war, or old shoes can become your dog’s new chew toy. You know what they say; One mans trash is another man’s treasure!
