2) Go sightseeing
Why not explore a new area of your city that you have been meaning to discover or visit a new city. The most dog-friendly cities include Southampton, Manchester, Glasgow, Bristol and Nottingham.
3) Visit a dog-friendly cafe
With a rise in dog cafes and dog-friendly restaurants, you are now spoiled for choice. Whether you opt for a cafe that has a menu just for dogs or visit a pub that offers dog treats and water, you are sure to have a relaxing meal alongside your pooch.
4) Go to a farm
If you have a city pup, why not take them to a farm and introduce them to the animals there? This can be great mental stimulation for them as they discover new sights and smells.
5) Get lunch at a dog-friendly market
With amazing smells and lots of treats for both humans and dogs, a food market is a great activity that doesn’t take up too much time.
6) Explore new terrain with your dog
Explore a beach, a forest or go on a hike and discover a new favourite trail. Whether you travel somewhere new to do this or find a new spot on your doorstep, this is sure to tire out your pup and boost your mood!
7) Throw them a doggy birthday party
Invite over their favourite doggy pals, bake some pawsome treats and pop a party hat on them.
8) Stay at a dog-friendly hotel
Spending a night or weekend away is always such a treat but leaving your dog behind can be sad. Leaving them with a local borrower is a great alternative, but there are now lots of dog-friendly hotels to choose from if you prefer! Have a pampering weekend at a spa hotel or stay in the countryside with lots of great walks around you.
9) Do a dog-friendly sport
If you have an adventurous pooch, you could do something like paddle-boarding or kayaking. There are lots of water sports centres that now offer these sessions!
10) Have a photoshoot together
Remember your friendship for years to come with a photoshoot. Whether it is classic or themed, it is a great thing to own and commemorate your time together.
