The fall season has officially begun! Bring on the endless pumpkin-flavored everything, bright fall colors, and cozy sweaters—it’s time to make some new memories with your furry friends. Whatever activity you decide to fill your autumn days, be sure to bring your pets along for the ride!
In lieu of the new season, the Precise team has compiled five fall activities to welcome back the crisp, cool weather with with your number one companion:
- Pumpkin Picking
Getting out and about to wander local fields will certainly make for a happy puppy; so grab your pet and head to your local pumpkin patch to find yourself a prize-winning pumpkin to take home. While enjoying this fun activity with your pet, be sure to keep plenty of water on-hand as well as ‘doggy bags’ to clean up after your animal. In most cases, pumpkin patches welcome pets with open arms—as long as they’re on a leash; be sure to call ahead of time to confirm your furry friend can come along for the ride.
Most pet parents are unaware that pumpkin can be beneficial to your animal’s health! While you’re carving away to create the perfect jack-o-lantern, let your furry friend chow down on a bowl of Precise Naturals® with a dollop of pumpkin for an extra flavor boost.
Not only is this great exercise for you, but for your animals too. Why not explore the great outdoors and hike up a mountain or visit a local park with your companion by your side? The cool weather makes this journey less of a chore and more of an experience where you and your pet can enjoy some one-on-one time. Although this activity can be exciting and fun, be sure to bring ample amounts of water and protective care for your animals to keep the bugs away so Fido can safely play.
Nothing is better than surrounding yourself with the beautiful changing leaves and bright autumn colors. One activity that is sure to keep your pooch a ‘happy camper’ is having them accompany you on a family camping trip (because no one likes getting left behind). Get in the water and take your dog on a kayaking adventure or huddle around the campfire and sing (or howl) campfire songs. Come nightfall, your pup will be so excited to snuggle up next to you and to soak in the memories you made together. But remember, just like you require a list of camping necessities, so do your animals; Here is a checklist of camping essentials for your pup.
You’re not the only one who enjoys watching a football be thrown back and forth; your pup loves it too! Take things to the backyard or enjoy a tailgate with your furry loved one by your side. Practice that NFL arm by playing catch with the football; or even dress them up in your favorite team’s attire as your cheer on the season!
- Playing in the Leaves
Let’s face it, pets love getting their paws dirty—whether it be taking a running start to bulldoze into a large pile of leaves, or rolling around and gettin’ messy, this fun fall activity is sure to keep you and your pet entertained for hours. Yeah, you may have to rake all over again, but the excitement on your animal’s face makes it all worth it.
