Autumn activities for you and your pup
The leaves may be changing, but that doesn’t mean the end of outdoor fun. Fall is a wonderful time for you and your dog to get out of the house and enjoy the season.
Add these activities to your autumn schedule to make the most of cozy sweater weather with your furry friend.
Visit a Pumpkin Patch
Spend a fall afternoon at a pumpkin patch searching for the perfect pumpkin to decorate your home for the season or carve up for Halloween. For some extra “likes” from your social following, snap an adorable fall photo with your pup and your pumpkin. If you don’t have a pumpkin patch nearby, try visiting a local apple orchard then bake your picks into a fresh apple pie.
Take Longer Walks – Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean you and your dog have to spend your days cooped up in the house. In fact, after months of hot weather, you and your pup might even be able to take longer walks, thanks to the comfortable, cooler climate. It’s also an opportunity to bundle up in your favorite fall layers.
Spend a leisurely weekend strolling your local farmer’s market or fall harvest festival. You can walk your dog as you spy and try delicious seasonal produce, like apples, squash, beets and cranberries. Some stands may offer treats for your dog, or you can bring your own pocketful of fall-friendly pumpkin spice dog treats (like GREENIES Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Flavor Dental Treats) to keep your furry friend happy.
You can find local farmers markets at:
