There are many ways to enjoy summer, and all of them are better when you can bring your dog along. I’d imagine you agree.
Whether you want to pack your days with excitement or spend your time relaxing and soaking up the sun, it’s important to get your pup in on the action of the season.
Our dogs enjoy the longer days and warmer temperatures just as much as we do, and that’s why I encourage you to make sure every member of your family is getting the most out of the season with these three ways to spend more time with your dog this summer.
3 Ways to Spend More Time With Your Dog This Summer
1. Splash Around
For many people, summer means visiting the beach, running through sprinklers, or doing cannonballs into a pool.
If your dog enjoys spending time in or on the water as much as you do, make sure you bring her along for your water adventures. You can both have fun and cool off with a trip to the lake or an afternoon running through the sprinkler in your yard.
This is also a great way to help your pooch burn off some of her energy throughout the day.

2.Explore the Wild
Summer is a fantastic time for adventures. What better way is there to explore the wilderness than with your dog at your side?
Camping with your dog is a great way to spend some quality time together while enjoying all the natural beauty the world has to offer. You can also wander through hiking trails or parks a little closer to home.

3. Work Out Together
If you’ve dedicated your summer to staying fit and healthy, why not invite your dog along?
Working out together is one of the best ways to spend more time with your dog this summer. Whether you’re training for a marathon or simply taking a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood, including your dog makes the experience even better. It might even boost your motivation on the days when you don’t feel like going out.
