This is the most Instagrammable activity ever, and you have just the right charming dog to do it. So, all you do is head out on a fall day when daylight is just right. Then you tell your dog to jump in the piles of leaves (if there aren't any, go ahead and rake some into piles and then proceed). If it helps, throw a toy somewhere in the leaf pile. Then, let your dog be adorable and charming like you only wish you could be! And take a ton of pictures to post on social media! It's a win-win, really.
Step
1
Rake leaves together
You want at least one giant pile of leaves. Of course, this is in proportion to your dog. If your dog is tiny, a small pile will do just fine. Just make sure it's big enough to reach the dog's neck, at least. That will make for the best photos ever! If you have a lot of leaves, consider raking one or two more piles of leaves, just because these piles get messy and flattened pretty quickly. Your pet will enjoy the outdoor time as you prep!
Step
2
Play time
Now it's time to throw your dog's toy all the way at the bottom of the pile of leaves and send your dog after it. Cheer your dog on, take the photographs, and just enjoy the moment! When your dog gets the toy, practice their recall skills. Have them bring the toy to you. Praise them and then throw the toy back in to continue the fun. It's a reward, and an incentive at the same time.

Activity description
Gardening is amazing to do, so relaxing. The only thing better is to do it with your dog! And they can be so helpful! The idea here is to head outside with whatever you need for gardening. Then you select areas you need digging, and point at them. Tell your dog to dig. Start digging if you need to, to get the message across. And then, let your dog shine! And reward with treats and water, because all of that sun exposure takes a toll. Also, if your dog starts misbehaving and wanting to dig elsewhere, direct that energy to a dog toy. This will serve as a distraction, until it's time to dig a new hole for another plant.
Step
1
Prep the stage
First things first, it's time to collect everything you need for your garden and head outside. That includes seeds, plants, soil, fertilizer, a watering can, gloves, and a sun hat. Whatever you feel you need is just fine. Bring along a water bowl so that you can fill the dish as needed from the garden hose. Then select the area your garden will go in. Design it in your head before proceeding, that way you know exactly where your dog needs to dig.
Step
2
Start digging
Now it's time to get your dog to dig! Point at the areas, tell the dog to dig, and if need be, start digging a hole yourself, just to get the message across. If your dog begins to get dig happy and starts digging in other areas that aren't being turned into gardens, throw a dog toy. Doing this will divert the attention onto something productive, the toy, rather than the soil that isn't to be disturbed.
Step
3
Future garden care
Realistically, the garden will need to be fenced off for some time so that your pup cannot reach it in hopes of digging on another day. Assigning your dog a personal digging area may be the best approach.

Activity description
So this is for all of those hopeless romantics that want to woo a special person with the help of a charming dog. And all it involves is going to the park, renting a canoe, then getting aboard with the dog, the special love interest, and a picnic basket. The idea is to have a nice, relaxing day out on the water, your dog sitting at the end of the canoe, majestic and charming as ever. Once you see a nice spot to park and eat, do so, and make sure you give your dog the treats, or any other dog-safe food item you've packed.
Step
1
Go to the park
Go to the park and rent a canoe. You may need to do some research first, to see which parks offer canoes that you can rent. Rental is fairly cheap, depending on where you live. It could be anywhere from $5-20, depending on how long you have the canoe for. Either way, rent it, and let's get going!
Step
2
Enjoy the ride
Now that you have the canoe, get in, settle the picnic basket in place, and help your date onto the canoe. Your dog (with their doggy life vest on) should jump in last, once the canoe is steady, so it can't flip. Once you're ready, it's time to use the paddles to move the canoe and enjoy the water. Paddle around until you find a good spot for a picnic.
Step
3
Picnic time
Once you find a good spot, paddle the canoe to shore, and get out carefully. Lay out the items from the picnic basket, sit down, and enjoy the experience. Make sure you give your dog some treats and any other food items you know are safe for your dog to eat. Respect the park area by picking up after your dog as needed and being sure to leave no garbage behind.

Meet Other Doggos

Because your dog is so charming, this should go pretty smoothly! Just pick a dog park where you know many neighbors take their pooches, and take yours to meet and greet them. If your dog is trained, there shouldn't be any issues. The whole point of this is to socialize your dog, and take advantage of the charm. Your dog may even find a crush!

Go to the Drive In

It's no secret, whenever a drive-through attendant sees an adorable, charming dog riding shotgun in a car, they tend to go bananas. So don't be afraid to try it out! You may even get a free treat for doggo out of that trip, but remember: it's not you, it's the dog. The drive-thru attendant packed up an extra apple pie or fry for the DOG, not you!

Conclusion

As you can see, charming dogs can do a variety of things, from being your wingmen, to playing around at the park, making other doggo friends. They can totally help you impress your guests at a get-together, and they can help you make new friends in a new city. It's all a matter of thinking outside the box!
