Beach during the winter season? Yes, you read that right. While the beach is known to be a destination during hot, summer days, it is also a good place to go during the cold season. In fact, beaches can be quite a sight to behold during the winter, when the shore is covered in snow and the water looks icy. What’s more, winter months are considered the low season, meaning there will not be much of a crowd during your visit. Wyoming may not be the top destination for the most popular beaches but it does not mean the state does not have some picturesque beaches to boast.
Sledding is one of those activities that you can only do during the winter season, when there is an abundance of snow. Luckily, the state of Wyoming gets really snowy during the winter, which presents a lot of opportunity for some dog sledding. This activity brings you back to your childhood days, when you did not have a care in the world as you went on a crazy downhill ride on your sled. You can relive these moments with your dog by doing some dog sledding, which is similar to conventional sledding but with a little assistance from your dog.
Even though outdoor winter activities are fun and exciting, there is also some pleasure to be had in relaxing indoors and enjoying the heat. Luckily, when in Wyoming, you can do a little bit of both. Because the state is known as one of the country’s top winter holiday destinations, it is no surprise that there is a great number of accommodations across the state. Also, since Wyoming is generally a dog-loving state and is accustomed to having visitors and their dogs, most of these accommodations are welcoming towards canines. Prices of these hotels range from cheap to expensive, depending on the location, services offered and several other factors.
The thick snow is one of the best places to hide things, making winter a great time to play scavenger hunt. To put your dog’s tracking skill to the test, choose a toy or treat and hide it all over the snow. Let your dog use scent in order to find your hidden treats. This mental game also doubles as a form of exercise for your pooch.
Wyoming, particularly in the Jackson Hole area, has numerous pet stores and specialty shops for you to visit with your dog. Places such as Teton Tails, Pet Place Plus, Pet Supply and Jackson Hole Feed are some stores that you can check out. You can bring your dog with you to these shops as long as they are on a leash.
When it comes to winter-related activities, Wyoming is definitely on top of the list of places to go to in the country. What’s more exciting for dog owners is that there is a myriad of dog-friendly activities which they can enjoy with their furry friends. If you want to have an unforgettable moment with your pooch this cold season, Wyoming is surely worth the trip.
