Bringing your pup to our community’s bark park can be a great way to bond with your dog and keep them active. Looking for some fun activities to enjoy with your dog once you arrive? We’ve got some ideas!
Dogs love to play fetch with frisbees, so bring one along with you and see just how coordinated your canine companion is. If frisbee is too difficult for your dog, you can always play with a tennis ball instead and work your way up to playing with a frisbee.
If your dog enjoys meeting other dogs, why not socialize them with some of the other dogs at the park? Just be sure to always approach other dogs and their owners carefully and ask for permission before letting your pup play with another dog. After all, not all dogs are social and/or friendly. If you have a larger dog, be sure to keep a close eye on them while playing with smaller dogs so that your pup doesn’t accidentally injure the smaller one.
Set Up an Agility Course
Challenge your dog with an agility course (like the ones you see in dog shows) and see how well your pup does! You can set up cones and other obstacles to create one of your own. Then, using a treat or vocal encouragement, entice your pup to power through the course.
You can teach your dog to pick up on certain scents by practicing tracking. This is essentially “hide-and-seek,” but with an article of clothing or a similar item. Let your dog sniff an article of clothing, then hide it somewhere in the park to see if your pup can find it!
And of course, you can never go wrong with an old-fashioned game of tug-of-war. Grab a rope, hold it out for your dog to grab, and then let the fun begin! This is a classic dog toy that most breeds enjoy.
