Crisp air, yellow leaves, and the smell of pumpkin spice everywhere can only mean one thing: fall is here! I have to get something off my chest: fall is my absolute favorite season. Yeah, winter, spring and summer are ok, but fall is by far the best time of the year. I love the cooler weather, fall fashion, and, of course, the delicious food that comes with this marvelous season!
Another thing I love about fall is that I get to take my dog out more often. The heat from summer is finally fading away and the slight cool breeze makes it the perfect “let’s go for a walk” weather.
Are you glad it’s finally fall too? Do you want to spend more time with your furry friend this season? Well, we’ve compiled a list of the perfect fall activities to do with your dog.
Fall Photo Shoot
Now, my dog will do just about anything for a treat, and that includes letting me dress her up and put her in ridiculous poses. I mean, I’ll go to extreme lengths for the perfect pic of my pooch! And since the outdoors are beautiful in the fall, you might as well take advantage of all nature has to offer and have an all-out photo shoot! It doesn’t have to be professional if you’re on a budget (I mean, if you have photographer connections, that’s great too, by all means go for it!), all you need is a camera (a nice phone may even work well enough), a few friends, and, of course, your pup! Bring along some props like a pumpkin, a plaid blanket and any fall-themed toys your dog has. These are all of the perfect ingredients for a new profile picture!
Make Pumpkin Spice Dog Treats
Ok, so your dog may not actually be able to help you mix up the dough for these, but i’m sure they’ll be willing taste testers! And I can imagine they’ll probably keep you company in the kitchen after smelling that you’re whipping up these fantastic treats! Let Fido in on the fall fun by making him a batch of these festive treats, the recipe is available here: Pumpkin Spice Dog Truffle Treats
You can indulge in a pumpkin spice latte while your pooch enjoys their favorite puppuccino! You can request this dog-friendly drink at Starbucks all over the country and, boy oh boy, your pup will love it! And, since fall provides the perfect weather, sit on the patio with your furry friend while enjoying your drinks together. I’m sure your dog will get loads of pets and compliments from passersby about how they’re such an adorable pup!
I mean, what’s more adorable than dogs dressed up in a Halloween costumes? Not much! Look up different pet stores or pet organizations in your area to scope out any animal-friendly Halloween celebrations around town. Often times there are giveaways, free treats, and, of course, costume contests! What makes these parties even better is that oftentimes the money raised goes to help animals in need, so you and your pup get to have fun while making a difference.
