When the weather is nice you and your dog may enjoy spending sometime out on the water together in a boat. This can include a kayak, canoe or even a motorboat. Prior to setting out, you will want to be sure that your dog has time to become comfortable with the watercraft. With a kayak for example, set it out on land first and let your pup explore it before taking it out on the water. Particularly with a kayak or canoe, you will want to be sure that your dog does well with commands, so that they are not jumping overboard as they please. A life jacket for your dog, as well as a harness, is recommended.
When the weather is nice and you and your pup are looking to spend some time outdoors, agility activities are a great activity where you can enjoy the weather and your dog can burn some energy. Agility activities are easy to set up; you can obtain a children's tunnel, for example, that your pooch can run in and out of. You can set up jumps using PVC pipe or even a hula hoop. Whatever activity you set up, start simple, and as your dog shows success, you can increase the difficulty, offering treats as a reward. As they develop their skills, you can put several activities together, so that your pal has their own obstacle course!
When the weather is nice, it is a great opportunity for you and your pup to explore. Depending on where you live, this can mean trips to the beach, a lake or a river. Some pups will run right into the water, while others will be more tentative and take some time to get comfortable. You can enjoy a pleasant walk beside them while they play in the wet stuff, as well as initiate games with your pooch like fetch while they run through the water. During warmer weather months, being close to (or even in) the cool water will be great for both you and your canine companion.
