1. Dog Parks

Take a trip to a dog park; your buddy is allowed to roam free there. These parks are becoming more common. They feature secured fences with safety signs posted all around.  Just clean up after your dog, and you can spend as much time as you want there.

Don’t forget to bring the leash, clean-up bags and a carrier with you. Spend some hours and let your dog socialize with other dogs. You might make a few friends yourself. Just keep watch and assure he doesn’t injure other dogs. Some parks feature a dedicated section for small dogs.

2. Musical Dance

Freestyle Musical Dance are sets of moves choreographed for a dog and his partner. If you have seen it, you will be amazed by how a dog and his human can pair-up to create magic. This is a work of pure teamwork, focus and lots of practice. You don’t need to pursue any specific dance discipline. If you want a fun and exciting activity, you have found it.

3. Backpacking

We all love to get away from our hectic lives! Do you want to go on a backpacking trip?  Don’t forget your dog! Fitness doesn’t come overnight, so you should plan and prepare for a long time, building up to longer and more difficult walks.

To start the process, check with local authorities to see if they allow pets on the trail. Some places allow pets, but others require a permit.  Bring a first aid kit for yourself and your dog. Learn how to administer basic first aid. If your dog has any health issue, this trip can be dangerous for him, so check with your veterinarian before beginning to plan your trip.  Don’t forget to pack enough water.

4. Play Flyball

Flyball is a relay race which requires your dog to run over four hurdles. It consists of catching a tennis ball released from a launcher and then racing back through the obstacles again. This race takes place in teams of four. Almost every dog loves to chase a ball. This is an excellent opportunity for your dog to burn some extra energy.

5. Go An A Day Trip

Most dogs love riding in the car. So take your dog along with you when visiting friends or family. You can add a side trip to do some shopping with him. Yes, you can always buy a new leash or other dog carrier accessories.

Some dogs love browsing pet supply stores, so be mentally prepared to spend some money.

6. Frisbee (Bonus)

Disc Dogs are dogs who love Frisbee. These dogs play for pleasure, or they can be very competitive. Be careful.  This sport consists of running and jumping.   Consult with your veterinarian before you start following a Frisbee training program.
