    1. WALKING

    The most obvious one is definetely the 'walkies'. The most simple thing you can do with your doggo is walks. It's a great and simple activity both for the human and his four legged friend.

    2. RUNNNIG

    Just like walking, running provides a great physical and mental stimulation. Aside from weight loss, runnning reduces anxiety levels and depression. Running is an even better way to deal with 'zoomies' and extra energy. Always remember to hydrate your dog properly and watch out for heat strokes.

    3. CAMPING

    Your dog will be thrilled to acompany you when you go camping. Dogs can adapt to a new sleeping environment easily so a tent won't be a problem, but they might preffer to sleep outside if the weather is hot. Always remember to keep your dog on a leash when they are away from you so they don't run off after another animal. Keep an eye out for signs of thirst/hunger and heat strokes or coldness. Fresh water being the most important, you should consider buying a reusable water bottle. The DrunkPupShop Travel Water Bottle offers just the thing.

    4. FISHING

    Known as the 'original Fisherman's Friend' most dogs absolutely love to go fishing. They can catch fish on their own, aid you in catching or simply keep you company. Your loyal companion will be quiet and won't disturb the fish. They might steal a bit of your food, but that's a reasonable price to pay. Always make sure to have fresh water and food for your dog alongside shade to keep them cool. A life jacket is an absolute must considering they will most likely go swimming at some point. Check out the DrunkPupShop Shark & Mermaid Life Jacket to keep your dog trendy and cool while having the peace of mind knowing your dog is safe while swimming.
