Things to do with your dog this summer: The dog calendar.

Things to do with your dog this summer: The dog calendar.

Ever wondered how your dog remains sane and entertained during endless hours of running, sniffing and jumping? Well, the sad truth is that our four-legged friends find it hard to avoid boredom, especially when at home for a majority of the day. So, if you would like to discover new ways to keep your precious pet occupied, this is the perfect blog for you. 

As it’s summer, the ever-changing weather is the most perfect time to get out and play with your dog. In summer, dogs are definitely open to new activities and adventurous. Therefore learning a few new techniques and games for your best friend will never go amiss. 

Voted the favourite dog game, by Inside Dog World , is the classic game of fetch. This most likely won’t be a new one to the majority of dog owners – However, what most owners are in the dark about is that their pet enjoys being instructed by their master; This will also help your dog to follow commands in the future whilst learning new skills and tricks. This may not seem the most thrilling activity, but it does a tremendous amount of good for your canine. As well as building and developing muscle, your dog is kept active and is able to release needless energy. This will prevent any energy being unnecessarily stored and transferred to impatience and restlessness in your home.

Did you also know that our furry friends love to show off their marvellous sense of smell? Therefore, in second place is a treasure hunt! This is perfect for outside during summer with your pup, just simply put one of their favourite treats (we suggest Finn’s Store’s Barking Heads Apple Snaffles) and hide it anywhere outside, give your dog your command to find it and they’ll find it in no time. Your dog will have a field day and it requires minimal effort from the owner! 

Lastly, in third place, we have tug of war. Dogs can put their strong muscles to good use and be rewarded for it. This gripping amusement undoubtedly improves your dogs confidence, courage and durability; meaning that you, as an owner, will feel increasingly closer to your dog and the feeling will definitely be reciprocated by them. 

Below we have put together a calendar of events for the summer period for you and your pup to enjoy.
