When the weather is warm, it can be the perfect time to go outside and do something fun with your friends and family. A vital part of your family tends to get left behind on most adventures, but here are several things that you can bring your furry best friend along to join in on the fun.

Dog Park

Taking your dog to the dog park is a great place for them to socialize and get some exercise. Its somewhere you can bond with your pet, but also get away from the house and experience nature. If you think a dog park is something that you and your dog would like, check out this article about Dog Park Tips. If you plan on playing for long, grab your Petmate Replendish To-Go Travel Bottle for a quick hydration station.


Take a stroll on your favorite hiking trail but don’t forget Buddy at home! A hiking trail is a great bonding experience and it lets Buddy enjoy the different sights and smells of nature. When it’s time for a water break don’t forget Buddy! Just snap off the Chuckit! Hydro Bowl from your backpack and fill it up.


Camping can be a way to get away from the hustle and bustle of life for you, your family, and your pup. There are campgrounds that are the perfect fit for your family from coastal views to historical campsites with tons of activities for you all to do. Don’t forget to pack your Petmate Silicone Travel Bowl Duo for convenient travel bowls that easily slip into your bag.


Playing games with your dog is a great way for the two of you to bond. There are plenty of things to do such as hide and seek or fetch. The Chuckit! Launcher allows you to play fetch without wearing yourself out. A variety of other dog fetch toys specifically crafted for the game are also available.


Put on your running shoes and grab your pup’s favorite leash. Going on a walk or jog is a healthy exercise for you and Fido and lets them release their energy. The Aspen Pet Training Lead allows them to wander but gives you the ability to pull them back safely without an excess of slack.

There are plenty of dog-friendly events you can walk or jog with your pooch. These events can be a great bonding experience for the two of you and are also great ways to socialize with other pets.


Explore your local lakes or rivers with your best friend. As you get an arm and core workout, you can enjoy the views and water with your favorite pet. They may be nervous the first time so take it easy but before long they’ll be a master of the water.


Heading to the beach? Make sure Fido is in the car before you go. A dog-friendly beach is a perfect spot for him to run around and get some sand in his paws. Fido can swim, fetch, or just soak up the sun. Bring his favorite floating toy, like some Chuckit! Amphibious Fetch Balls for hours of fun! Be sure to fill up their travel water bowl so they have plenty of fresh water to keep them hydrated. We carry a wide selection of dog travel bowls and bottles that are compact enough for any beach bag.


Wherever you go, make sure that you bring plenty of water for both yourself and your dog and be aware of the signs of heat exhaustion. Call up your friends and family, make some plans, and don’t forget your four-legged pal!
