Springtime is just around the corner. With it comes the much anticipated warm weather, blue skies, and green grass. You aren’t the only one looking forward to Spring! Your furry friend is looking forward to nicer weather and being able to play outside. There’s no better way to get your dog or cat primed for a nap in their custom pet bed than with a nice outing.
How can you and your best friend enjoy the beautiful spring weather together? Let’s take a look at the best springtime activities to enjoy with your dog or cat.
The Best Springtime Activities for Dogs
No matter you or your dog’s interests, there is something for everyone. Let’s take a look at the best activities to enjoy with your beloved pup this spring.
Take a Hike
Take your furry friend on a hike. You will enjoy the exercise and beautiful views while your best friend enjoys exploring new territory with new smells, and of course his best friend! Be sure to pack plenty of water and snacks for you both!
Catch a Frisbee
Grab a frisbee or a ball and hit your backyard or even the nearby park for a game of fetch. You will both enjoy the fresh spring air and both you and your best friend will get a workout that leaves you ready for a nap!
Get Your Jog on!
An exciting jog around your neighborhood will definitely put your pup in the mood for a nice long afternoon nap. If you want to mix things up, you can find a local park or a nice wooded jogging trail to explore.
Visit the Dog Park
Dog parks are a great way to allow your best friend to not only get out pent up energy but to socialize. He can meet and play with new friends while you make new friends of your own as well.
The Best Springtime Activities for Cats
While cats are known for lounging on the back of the sofa or their custom pet bed, there are still plenty of activities you can engage in with your cat that will leave them begging for a nap.
A Breath of Fresh Air
If you think only dogs enjoy walks, think again! Many cats enjoy a nice walk outdoors in the fresh air. If you choose to brave it outside with your cat, be sure to do so safely. Unlike dogs, cats do not take well to a leash attached to their collar. Instead, invest in the proper size harness. It will not only be more comfortable for your cat, but more secure as well.
Most cats are mesmerized by birds and can watch them for hours. Choose a room in the house that offers a great opportunity for your furry friend to perch on a piece of furniture and catch a great view out of the window. Place a bird feeder within view of the window and let your feline enjoy a bird watching session followed by a long nap. Elevate your cat’s experience by opening the windows. Just make sure the screens are still in!
Engage in Mobile Apps
There are plenty of mobile apps available for your cat to interact with. The two of you can sit on the screened in porch while your feline friend chases lasers or small critters on your screen. After a session of active play, your cat will be more than happy to take a long nap.
Springtime not only brings with it great weather, but new opportunities to spend time with your beloved friend. These activities will not let your pet get out much-needed energy from the long winter months but are sure to leave you and your pets with lasting memories!
