10 Fun Fall Activities To Do With Your Pet

Fall is a fabulous season of colors, crisp air, and pumpkins. The leaves are falling and the weather is cooling down. From cute crafts to adventuring outdoors, there are so many fun fall activities that you and your pet can enjoy together.

Here are some fun ideas for how you can enjoy this festive time with your furry best friend!

  • Bake doggie treats
  • Fall is the perfect time of year to introduce new treats. If you really want to get into the spirit of the season, try baking some doggie treats. They're easy to make at home and your pet will love them.

  • Head to a pumpkin patch
  • Find the nearest pumpkin patch and spend the day enjoying outdoor activities, like hay rides, corn mazes, and farmer’s markets. The best part is, you and your pet can pick the biggest pumpkin to take home and carve for Halloween.

  • Apple picking
  • Nothing is sweeter in autumn than the taste of a crispy apple. You might want to grab an empty basket and plan an apple picking day trip. Bring your pet along for a relaxing walk through a pet-friendly orchard. You can even use these apples to make homemade dog treats! Don't forget to bring some poop bags in case you need to pick up after your dog.

  • Watch a Halloween movie together 
  • There's no more classic activity than watching a movie with your furry companion. Watch movies like It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Halloweentown, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, and Casper. You can even tune into a Halloween Special on Netflix. Don't watch scary movies if your dog gets frightened easily.

  • Host a party
  • There’s no better way to celebrate fall than with a cool backyard celebration. Invite your friends and their furry children to a fun-filled day of playtime, delicious treats, and a costume contest.

  • Go for a hike
  • Fall is a great time to hit the trail with your furry best friend. The temperatures have cooled down and the autumn leaves are putting on an incredible show of color! Make sure your pet is protected from fleas and ticks

  • Try a pet-friendly workout
  • As the weather starts to cool, look for some indoor exercise programs for your furry pal. Indoor exercises and games are a great way for both of you to stay in shape throughout the holiday season.

  • Snap some dog photos
  • Fall provides some great pet picture opportunities! Capture your furry friend playing outside and save them for future memories. If you’re feeling extra creative, try organizing these pet photos into an autumn scrapbook. 

  • Visit a dog park 
  • Bring along your pet to do some fun socializing at the park. Your furry pal can run and play to their heart’s content without you having to worry about the hot climate.

  • Plan a fall play date with your pet’s best friend
  • If you have a fenced yard where your dog can safely play, why not plan a dog play date? Invite one of your dog’s best furry friends over for an afternoon to play, romp, and have fun together.

    After a hot and sticky summer, the cool days of fall feel like an absolute breath of fresh air! Keeping your pets entertained in the fall is easy, and the whole family will love these activities too.
