It is well known that
Denver is a very pet friendly city. Pet parents know that the best way to put
an extra wag in a dog's tail and a spring in his step is to mention the word
"walk" or "outside." We've all seen it before. Pets
automatically perk up at the opportunity for time outdoors. Additionally, an
active lifestyle is just as beneficial for the pets as it is for the pet owners
and promotes a healthy routine, while strengthening the loving bond.
It's the perfect time
of year to incorporate some extra activities into your pet's schedule. The
warmer weather and longer daylight hours offer additional time outside. When
planning vacations, weekend getaways, or even weeknight outings, be sure to
include activities that are pet-friendly. Try these tips and share in an active
summer with your four-legged friends.
* Go for a hike.
Getting out in the woods is a thrill for dogs - everywhere they turn, there's
something to sniff, look at or maybe even chase. Hit the trails with him for an
active outing that's refreshing, healthy and fun. It's important to be
well-supplied for hikes. Be sure to bring plenty of water as well as wholesome
snacks - a trail mix with nuts and dried fruit for you and Milk-Bone Trail Mix
for dogs, which has real beef and sweet potatoes, for your buddy - to keep
everyone energized and hydrated. Find a list of dog-friendly events from
Milk-Bone dog snacks at www.milkbone.com/trailmix.
* Explore new
neighborhoods. Most people and pets have a well-worn path on their neighborhood
walks, so why not switch up the scenery? Stray off the usual route, or drive
somewhere different to go for a stroll. Try to find dog-friendly business
districts that encourage visitors to bring pets along. In urban cities,
dog-friendly parks are great places to spend time with your dog and even meet
fellow pet parents. A great spot to meet other pet parents and to grab a beer is the Watering Bowl in Denver. It’s a relaxed family friendly tavern that
offers a 7,000 square foot fully fenced private dog park.
* Do good for charity.
Supporting local and national charities that benefit dogs and other pets goes a
long way toward giving animals in need the life they deserve. One way to
participate is through fundraising walks that support charities such as animal
shelters and animal welfare organizations. Charitable organizations that are
also pet-friendly are the perfect way to participate in a great cause while
being active with a pet.
Health and activity
are closely linked for both people and pets. So what's good for people is good
for furry family members. Think creatively about how to do more together with
your pet, and you'll find plenty of ways to enjoy the season and each other.
