The first day of autumn is this Saturday! Fall is a great time of year to enjoy outdoor activities with pets. Cooler temperatures make it easier for your pets –and you!– to stay cool.
Here are some fun fall activities activities to do with your animal companions:
- Activity classes – They’re a great way to strengthen the bond between you and your pets and learn new training methods. PHS offers classes on-site as well as at the LA Arboretum.
- Hiking – Cooler temperatures make it more enjoyable for both you and your pet. Always check for fleas or ticks afterward.
- Outdoor games – Playing fetch, Frisbee or football with your dog while raking the leaves. This can help burn energy and give your dog a good workout.
- Fall festivals & Halloween events – The annual Wiggle Waggle Walk on September 30 is always good way to start off the season. You can meet fellow animal lovers, make new friends and best of all help the animals in the community! You can also check pet-friendly websites like BringFido.com for a comprehensive list of activities to do in your area. Dressing up your pets in costumes is a sure way to bring plenty of fun and laughs to the entire family too.
