As we enter August, the last stretch of true summer, it is important to take advantage of the remaining lazy summer days and enjoy some quality time with your pets. Summer brings not only warm, sunny days, but the days are also longer with extended daylight hours. Now is the time to take advantage of this, before you know it the cold months will be upon us again.
Below are a few suggestions for taking advantage of the remaining summertime and having some fun with your pets:
Swimming – Dogs are natural born swimmers. They love the beach, lake or just a family pool. While cats may be much more leery of the water, the hotter it gets the more likely your cat will be willing to join you for a dip.
Baseball Game – During the summer baseball games are everywhere. Whether in the park or ball field, your pet will enjoy the excitement of attending a sporting event. You may even want to pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it.
Camping – This outdoor activity has all of a dog’s favorite things: the outdoors, swimming, Frisbee and more.
Boating – Many pets enjoy a trip out in the boat on hot summer days. The cool breeze keeps thing pleasurable and the scenery will keep your pet occupied. Always remember to put a life jacket on your pet when in a boat.
Whatever activity you choose to do with your pet during the summer months the key is to be safe and spend quality time together, enjoying the weather and the outdoors. Your pet will appreciate it!
