If you're searching for a way to break up your dog's daily walking routine but still give them plenty of exercise and mental stimulation, this activity is for you. If you've lived somewhere for a while, it's often easy to forget about all the great features your town has to offer -- you know, all the interesting sights and attractions that tourists come to see.

So why not rediscover your city and take your dog on a pet-friendly walking tour? You can see the sights, get some exercise, and spend some quality time bonding with your canine pal.

Here's how to plan the paw-fect day out.

Step
1
Plan your route
Take some time to think about the main sights and attractions you want to see with your dog. You might want to take in the most spectacular views, check out all the tourist hotspots, or take a stroll through the heart of the city. You'll also want to include as many dog-friendly stops along the way to keep things interesting for your canine pal.
Step
2
Get moving
Once you've packed whatever essentials you need, such as some treats and water for your dog, get out there and start exploring. Your pooch will love experiencing a host of different sights, sounds, and smells, and you'll enjoy looking at your town in a different light. Best of all, you'll be out there exploring the world together.

Do you feel like you need a quick weekend getaway just to recharge your batteries? Could your dog benefit from a fun weekend by your side to break up their normal routine?

If this sounds about right for you, it's time to plan a pet-friendly weekend getaway with your canine pal. There are plenty of hotels, resorts, campgrounds, and holiday houses where four-legged guests are more than welcome, so what's stopping you from spoiling your Crested Beagle for a night or two? You could enjoy lazy evenings in front of an open fire, explore new hikes and parks, enjoy some gourmet treats, or plan a weekend of pampering -- it's entirely up to you.

Step
1
Get a room
The first step is to choose your destination -- where do you want to go and what do you want to do when you get there? Once you have a rough idea, do some online research to find out what pet-friendly accommodation options are available in the area. Whether you want a hotel, B&B, resort or something else, you might be surprised just how any places welcome dogs.
Step
2
Pack the essentials
Before heading away for the weekend, make sure you've packed everything your dog needs for the paw-fect weekend away. This includes food, bedding, toys, a leash, and any medication they may be taking. It's also a good idea to research veterinarians and animal hospitals in the local area in case of emergency.
Step
3
Relax and enjoy
With all the prep out of the way, the only thing left to do now is head to your destination, unpack and enjoy. Whether you're planning an active weekend full of hiking and exploring, or a lazy weekend spent relaxing and indulging, the most important thing is that you're spending a whole lot of quality time with your fur-baby.

Activity description

As a proud pet parent, you probably find yourself reaching for your smartphone multiple times a day, rushing to try and grab a picture every time your pooch does something cute. Candid snaps are great for capturing those many memorable moments that occur each day, but sometimes it's a whole lot of fun to create some truly special snaps at a special pet photo shoot.

Why? Well, you get to dress your pet up in a whole heap of cute costumes for starters, and your Crested Beagle will love the opportunity to be the center of attention. Throw in a few tasty treats and the chance to spend some quality time with you and this activity is starting to sound like your pet's idea of perfection!

Step
1
DIY or professional?
The first thing you need to consider is whether you'll be taking the photos yourself or booking your pooch in for a session with a professional animal photographer. The DIY option is obviously cheaper, but there's also the fact that a professional should be able to get better shots than you.
Step
2
Get set up
If you decide to stage your own photo shoot, a little forward planning will help you produce some gorgeous shots. For example, will you be dressing your pooch up in some cute costumes? Will you be using any props in the shoot? Will you go to a special location to take the photos? You can also do some online research to find out how to take the best possible photos of your furry friend.
Step
3
Start snapping
Now it's time to get your canine model to start posing for the camera. To do this, you can ask them to sit and stay while they wait for a treat, or perhaps get their attention with a squeaky toy or their favorite ball. The main thing to remember is to keep it fun and give your pooch a chance to stretch their legs rather than just sitting in front of a camera the whole time. By the end of the day, you should have a camera roll full of gorgeous shots to share with your friends and family.

And as long as those activities allow you to spend lots of one-on-one time with your canine pal, your Crested Beagle will live a life filled with happiness.
