Fall Bucket List For You and Your Dog
More and more places are becoming dog-friendly - thank you Millenials! When you have a well-behaved furbaby, it’s fun to bring her out and about with you. The fall tends to bring with it happy people and happy places! What better time to bring your dog outside and enjoy it all with you?
Furbaby Fall Bucket List
Find a Friendly Farm
Call around and ask your local pumpkin patches and apple orchards when the least busy hours are (and if they allow dogs, of course). You can take off one morning and bring your furry friend to find the perfect pumpkins to decorate your front porch. (Or collect a basket of apples for a few great desserts!)
It’s Octoberfest time! There’s brats and beer and kilts and music. Your dog will love it as much as you do! Find a nearby celebration and head out to enjoy the festivities together.
Sometimes your backyard is the best place to create memories. Set up your camera and jump in the leaves with your dog. A self-timer will help you document the greatest memories!
Eat Some Pumpkin
According to Dog Time, “Pumpkin is high in water content and a great source of fiber. You can either puree fresh pumpkin or use canned pureed pumpkin.” You can stop by your favorite bakery or pull out your grandmother’s famous pumpkin pie recipe. As you cute yourself a piece, serve your pup a pumpkin-filled treat or simply add some pureed right on top of his dinner. (Pumpkin does act as a high-fiber snack that will aid in any constipation issues your pup may have, but be careful because too much will have her running outside every 5 minutes!)
Snuggle Up Together
Halloween movies are playing loud and proud already… and holiday movies start playing in mid-October, so order dinner in, grab your favorite blankets and let your pup up on the couch with you for a great night of snuggles.
Run a Race
Every fall, cities host dog-friendly 5k’s. They are a great way to get outside and enjoy the new season, fellow animal lovers, and your pup! You can walk or run, but either way you will have a blast!
The air is perfect and the trees are spectacular. You can plan a camping trip or an afternoon hike, but make it worth it. You want to breathe in the crisp air and be able to let your dog run free without worry, so plan accordingly.
It’s time to get outside with a tennis ball, football, soccer ball, or whatever ball your pup loves. Most dogs would love to get in on a game of soccer or fetch, so grab a ball (and a beer) and head outside to play with your dog!
Host a Halloween Costume Party (or just dress up)
Whether you have a puppy-party to attend, or you plan to hand out candy all night long, you can fin plenty of great costumes for your furbaby to wear alongside of you. You can match or Fns something that fits each of your personalities.
