Experiences to Consider
If you do manage to get the day off for this occasion, you should plan out your day so you can ensure both you are your dog gets to have some fun and enjoy quality time together. Some of the options you can consider are:
Gardening with Your Dog
One of the things you can do if you don’t want to go out is to do some gardening. Your dog will love spending time outside with you while you get some of the much-needed gardening tasks out of the way. If the weather is good, you can both spend hours out in the garden enjoying the fresh air, whipping the garden into shape, and even enjoying some dog games out on your lawn.
Take a Hike!
If you love to walk, taking your dog for a good long hike at a local nature trail is a great idea. Your pup will love the extra-long walk and the chance to explore the wildlife and nature along the way. You can get some fresh air and exercise, and you can both enjoy a change of scenery while getting to spend some quality time together. You can easily go online and find local nature trails that are perfect for hiking with your pet.
Head to the Woods
Another thing you can do is to head to the woods or to another area where there is plenty of lush greenery to enjoy exploring together. Most dogs love outdoor adventures, and heading to somewhere new where neither of you has been before will give you both something new to explore. Do some research to find out where the most suitable places are, and make sure you check they are dog friendly. If there are no wooded areas nearby, you could consider driving with your pet a little further afield.
These are some of the fun ways in which you can while away the hours with your beloved pooch on National Pet Day Off.
