One thing England is known for is its rainy weather. Although it’s nowhere near the coldest climate, the sun doesn’t show it’s face that often either. For all you dog-lovers out there, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot to do with your pooch. There are some great dog-friendly places to be found in England, and excellent activities for you to take part in with your canine pal, especially if you have an active dog. The UK is full of beautiful countryside and wonderful hilly areas. There are also a lot of coastal destinations to explore that can offer tons of fun.
England offers beautiful hiking areas for dog and man alike. Whether you favor the coast or choose to explore other regions in the country, England will not disappoint. Trek the low hills and fields or climb a challenging peak. Your dog will enjoy exploring marshes and investigating the smells of the fields. Pack a picnic and take advantage of a pleasant day, all the while bonding with your best buddy.
There are many lakes and a coastal line that surrounds England, meaning that a beach is never too far away. If you are a fan of the outdoors, then paddle boarding could be a nice way to beat the boredom blues. It's a blast when you get to encourage your pet to try new things. If you do choose to try this fun sport, ensure that the place you are taking your dog to doesn’t have restrictions on dogs as some places enforce limitations during summer months. Consider your dog's comfort level in the water; remember you need them to sit still on your board and then retrieve an item from the water. Choose your location based your pal's abilities. If they don’t like water or have never swam before, then you will need to remain near a shallow body of water and practice until your poochie pal gets used to getting on the board and jumping off. It’s a fun way to keep fit and swimming is one of the best exercises for your canine, especially if there are joint problems with your particular breed. Be mindful of mobility issues though, if you plan on having your dog climb back on the board each time.
In England, there are lots of English Heritage sites and many of these sites allow you to take your four-legged friend. English Heritage protects and preserves a lot of historic buildings, like castles and buildings or structures. For example, in Northumberland there is Hadrian’s Wall, which is an ancient Roman-built wall. You can have a leisurely stroll with your canine partner while learning about historical England.
There are many dog shows in England. Crufts is the most famous, but many different towns and counties also have dog shows, in different halls and gardens. If you have a well-behaved and well-trained dog, why not enter them? Your talented buddy will love to be pampered at the parlor beforehand, and use your imagination to teach them a new trick in time for the show to make them stand out from the others.
There are lots of things to do in England; there are many dog owners and the country itself is very dog-friendly. Due to the different landscapes there are several pleasurable environments in which to have fun, and the many areas and features can challenge your pal and increase their level of fitness, while being enjoyable for you, too. Come rain or shine, England is a wonderful place to be as a dog owner!
