Taking an excursion with your dog doesn’t need to be an expensive or planning-intensive experience. With a little ingenuity and some online searching, freestyling a day trip with your dog can be action-packed fun!
Prepare, pack, pursue and play are the four tasks at hand.
Prepare and Pack
Live the “safety first” mantra and pack an “ACH” (anything can happen) kit. Include a dog-themed first-aid kit, fresh water, a bowl, an identification tag, a photo, cleanup bags, and any snacks or food for the day. Keep pests away with flea and tick repellant, and have a pair of tweezers handy in case a tick finds your dog.
