Fall Activities With Our Dogs

October 5, 2012  

Now that October is here and the cold air and fall fun is upon us, we asked our Facebook fans, ’What fun fall activities do you like to do with your dogs? Apple picking, corn mazes, pumpkin patches?’

Hiking, longer walks and playing in the leaves were all favorites. Fall gives us just another excuse to spend time with our dogs. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks everyone for sharing.

Plain and simple … everything. ~ Amy Cox Weaver

Hike, hike, hike. Miss Trudy loves the mountains and all the smells it has to offer.

Watch our girls romp and play in the leaves in our back yard or sit on our front porch wrapped in a blanket letting our girls say hi to everyone who passes by and shows them how loving they can be.

More hiking and longer walks because Stevie won’t get too overheated and insist that I carry all 70 pounds of him when he gets tired.

~ Stevie the Wonder Dog

More golf cart rides with the three “Habermutts!” We go year-round but it’s much more enjoyable during the fall and winter months here in South Florida. They all love climbing on board and getting harnessed in! Wee!

Long walks.

Hooking up the harness and getting pulled by my pit bull on my bike.

Running at the lake. ~ Cynthia Worsham

I don’t know anything about seasons where I’m in (San Diego, CA). It’s always either hot or hotter. Today it’s 100 degrees so we still take my very handsome 4-year-old pit bull to our gorgeous beach. He lives to swim and play in the sand a true California dog.

We’ll be going to Central Park more often to scamper through the falling leaves!

I just love taking walks with my dogs and kicking up leaves!

Sleep on the couch in a dog pile with the cool breeze blowing. When we lived back East we loved to let the dogs jump in the piles of leaves!

    These are all great activities, and I think I’ll look up some corn maze events. Me, Cocoa Bear, and Razz usually go hiking, and shooting in the mountains. We enjoy launch, and at the end of the day we drive home exhausted to relax on the couch, and watch a movie with the fire going.
