Six Summer Activities for You and Your Pet

The warm weather brings many opportunities to spend time with your pet outdoors. If you notice your four-legged friend gazing out of the window more often, they may be longing for more time in the sunshine. Your pet may want longer walks and more time to play outside — so the Precise team conjured up a list of perfect summertime activities for you and your furry friend!

#1. Lake or Beach Day

Taking your pet along for a day trip to the lake or beach is the perfect getaway for you both! Whether they enjoy swimming or digging in the sand, most dogs are thrilled for the chance to be around water. Wading along the shoreline is a great chance for them to stay cool while they play! For the more relaxed animal, walking along the dock or snoozing by the bay window are also fun ways for your pet to enjoy themselves.

#2. Yoga

Why not practice your cat pose or downward-dog alongside your animal? Most pets become curious when they notice their owner joining them on the floor to stretch. Your cat may decide to keep you company on the yoga mat or your dog may decide to lick your face while you plank. This is a fun way to bond with your pet while also keeping yourself healthy. What’s great about yoga is you can practice it inside or outside, and your animals will enjoy making it a bit more challenging for you by walking around your legs as they watch you hold the poses!

#3. Hiking

Exploring the wilderness— or even your local greenway trail— is an awesome way to spend time outside with your pet. What animal doesn’t crave adventure and lots of new smells? Dogs in particular love the chance to sniff their way along the forest trails as you hike alongside them. For the adventurous feline, they may choose to climb on top of your backpack as you make your trek.

#4. Bring Your Furry Friend to the Farmer’s Market

Summer is the perfect time to shop at your local farmer’s market. While you pick up that pint of fresh strawberries, why not bring your furry friend along for your stroll through the produce stalls? Most farmer’s markets are outside and animal-friendly — no need to drop your pet off at home before grabbing those groceries! Your sweet pet may have the opportunity to meet other animals out with their owners for the day and will surely enjoy the chance to see all the hustle and bustle of the market.

#5. Pet Picnic

After stocking up on tasty groceries from the farmer’s market, go ahead and have a picnic with your pet at the local park! If staying closer to home would be more comfortable for your pet, there’s no rule against having a picnic in your own backyard either. Spread out a picnic blanket and pack your basket with a nice lunch for yourself as well as water and snacks, like our Healthy Habits® Treats, or other goodies for your four-legged friend.

#6. Reading in the Sunshine

Nothing says relaxation like curling up with a good book either under a tree, in a patio chair or on a couch by the window. Reading is also a good way to unwind after a picnic with your pet. Wherever you decide to pour through your summer reading, your pet will probably be close by to enjoy your company as well as the sunshine. Some leisurely time in the sun is the ultimate way for both you and your pet to relax after lunch. Your fur-baby may just decide to take a sun-nap and fall asleep while you’re reading — hello cute pic opportunity!

While enjoying the summer day with your pet, remember to always have food and water on hand in case they become fatigued or crave a snack. Precise Naturals pet food for your dog or cat is a great option to keep your animal happy, healthy and satisfied. We wish you and your pet a great summer filled with lots of adventure!
