5 Things For You And Your Dog to do This Fall Vegas
We all know that summers in Las Vegas are hot… VERY hot! In Vegas, most dog owners know that one of the main rules is to limit your dog’s physical activity in the peak of the heat. And we also know that the peak of the heat is literally almost all of the time. We avoid dog parks, long walks, and extended backyard play. So of course, we are all looking forward and enjoying the cooler temperatures that come with the fall season and spending more time outdoors with our furry friends! Here are 5 Things For You And Your Dog to do This Fall Vegas.
1. Dog Parks
Although Vegas doesn’t have the typical pools of autumn gold and rust colored leaves for our dogs to frolic in, we do have a great variety of dog parks all over the city! Between fetching tennis balls and frisbees, chasing each other, and running to greet every newcomer, dogs are bound to get more exercise and burn more calories at dogs parks than they would during a stroll with their owners around the neighborhood. Only want the best for your dogs? HERE are the top 5 dog parks in Vegas!
2. Longer Walks
Dogs need walks for both exercise and mental stimulation, and your backyard alone doesn’t provide the variety of sensory stimulation most dogs need to prevent boredom. Walks give dogs the chance to get out of the house, sniff around and engage with their environment, and potentially meet new people and dogs. Just make sure to always have a securely-fitting collar or harness and ID tags!
Who doesn’t crave pumpkin spice lattes in the fall?! Well, if you didn’t know, you aren’t the only one who can indulge this season. Starbucks offers Puppuccinos for your pups! They are just an espresso cup filled with whipped cream, but I’m sure your dog will find them super tasty! Next time you stroll through the Starbucks drive-thru for your yummy latte, don’t forget about your furry friend!
4. Grabbing Lunch Together
Many pet friendly restaurants in town offer treats or meals made specifically for your dog! Spend that time with them on the patio, take in the fresh, brisk air, and indulge in a tasty mid-day meal with your best friend.
5. Go Shopping Together
Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or your pup, get an early start on buying holiday gifts, or simply enjoy the fresh air while window shopping, there are plenty of dog-friendly shopping areas and stores in Vegas. Hey, you might even snag up some matching Halloween Costumes!
Make it a point this fall to increase your dog’s activity this season and get out there with them to enjoy this weather and what this city has to offer. Even if that means sitting on a dog park bench, sipping your pumpkin spice latte, and watching your dog play with their friends in their favorite dog park.
