Easter activities for dogs14 March 2023
The long Easter weekend is fast approaching so we thought we’d put together some pawsome ideas of things you can do with your dog this Easter. What better way to spend that extra free time than with your best floofy friend! Take a look at the fun things you can do with them below:
Easter Egg hunt
Easter Egg hunts aren’t just for humans! You can adapt the egg hunt to be dog-friendly by using your pooch's dog-safe, favourite treats instead of chocolate eggs. Pop the treats in a kong, toys, or simply scatter them around. You can scatter treats around the house or around your garden, depending on what’s available to you and of course, on the weather!
Find out how to create a dog-friendly egg hunt this Easter.
Take a weekend trip
Fancy taking a short break away for the Easter weekend? Sniffing around for some dog-friendly accommodation? Take a look at our dog-friendly holiday accommodations and start planning some time away with your dog.
Visit a National Trust or English Heritage park
Who doesn’t love a good day out in your local area of natural beauty? Many of the sites are dog-friendly and it’s a great day out for the whole family. We recommend checking on their website or contacting them directly to double-check what areas of the park are dog friendly.
See the English Heritage site for dog-friendly outings.
And here's the National Trust site on dog-friendly sites.
Go on a shopping spree
Everyone deserves a treat every now and again, so why not take your pooch to your local pet shop.
Most pet stores let your pup in too, so why not let them choose a toy or even a tasty treat for themselves?
Some hooman shops let our pup pals in too, so here's our guide to dog-friendly high street shops.
Easter is a great time to bake, especially if you have some family coming around. That being said, your furry friend shouldn’t miss out on a homemade treat.
Baking something for your pooch is easier than you think, we have a few easy homemade dog recipes you can try. We’re sure your doggy will love them!

Take a new route
Most dogs love a walk, so why not take them to a new or different place to their regular stomping ground? They’ll love the new environment and the exciting sniffs that come with it. If isn’t easy to take them somewhere new why not take a fit dog on an extra-long walk instead?
Here's our guide to the best dog walks.
Go to the seaside
Oh we do love to be beside the seaside! Celebrate the weather getting slightly warmer by taking a trip to your closest beach. It’ll be a fun day out for you and your pup! Make sure to double-check which parts of the beach, and what time they're dog-friendly.
Teach them a new trick
Grab a bite to eat
There are a number of places around the UK which allow dogs on their premises, and this includes a number of dog-friendly pubs.
Find your local dog-friendly establishment and pay them a visit for a drink or a bite to eat and take your pup with you! Here's our guide to dog friendly pubs in the UK.
Find some buddies!
Fancy making some new friends?
Over the weekends there are very often group walks, or did you know as an owner on BorrowMyDoggy you can contact other owners too?
Simply create a borrower profile and take a look at the other doggies in your area! Or of course, as a borrower, you can find a lovely doggy to borrow over the Easter weekend too!
We hope we’ve given you a few things to do with your dog this Easter. We’re sure you’ll all have a wooftastic time! Feel free to share your time with your doggy, borrowed or owned with us on our Facebook or Instagram using #BorrowMyDoggy.
Happy Easter pups!
