Activities during the week occupy the majority of your time, and when you return home, you only have so much time to give your pup the love and affection he or she needs before you have to go to bed and start the pattern all over again. While the weekend may be your only chance to relax or do the activities you enjoy, there’s no reason why you and your pup can’t enjoy some of those activities together!

While bringing your favorite furball to the movies may not be ideal, there are plenty of fun things that you and your dog can do together. In today’s post, we will give you a few ideas on some ways that you can spend time with your pup without sacrificing your weekend plans.


Hiking is a great way to explore nature with your pup, especially since many parks allow dogs on the trails. In fact, your dog will probably love hiking just as much as you do! Your pooch will enjoy exploring all the new sights and smells, not to mention you will enjoy having your furball there to help you keep pace. Hiking is a great way for both you and your dog to get out of the house and get exercise, which is especially important if you have a dog with a lot of energy. That being said, make sure you bring plenty of water for you and your pet, as you’re both going to get thirsty.

The Beach

If hiking isn’t your favorite activity, a trip to the beach could be just as rewarding. Leaving the house to visit a new location gives your pup a chance to explore and run around. While you may be excited to relax in the sun, your favorite furball will have a great time chasing birds, running up and down the beach, and playing in the waves. You could even bring your dog’s favorite ball or a frisbee and play a game of fetch! After a long day at the beach, don’t be surprised if your pup falls asleep on the ride home.


Combine all your favorite outdoor activities into one with a family camping trip! No family trip is complete without your lovable pup, and camping is a great excuse to bring Fido along. Dogs are a welcome part of the camping scene, and your pooch will enjoy being a part of the action in addition to spending quality time with his or her favorite humans.

Aside from a lazy Saturday watching TV at home, these are just a few activities in which your dog could be a welcome participant. At Off-Leash K9 Huntsville, we love to see you bond with your dog as we give you the dog training tools and techniques you need to help make fun weekend trips a success!
