Now that we've said adieu to winter, and spring is upon us, we can watch this beautiful land transform from hues of orange, and gold as it slowly shifts into the warmer climes of the Australian spring and summer.
What better way to experience this change of season than with your little fur baby, who's also needing that extra bit of fun like YOU! Getting OUTDOORS in the warmer weather is so much more pleasurable when you can do it with your furry furriend(s) so enjoy this compilation of 5 fun activities that you can do together with your dog this spring to enjoy the outdoors!
1. Go for a walk
Mix up your usual walking routine, and try a new adventure ... head to a new park, wander down unknown streets, explore unknown trails, because that's not only fun for YOU but also something NEW is full of sensory delight for your pup!
Does your dog like apples? Do you like apples?! YES, APPLES! This weekend, try and visit a local orchard ... there's bound to be one not too far out of town from where you live. When you're back home, prepare some apple goodies that you can share with your doggo. According to pitpat, apple slices are great in cleaning your pup's teeth to keep them smelling fresh and cool.

The afternoon light is STUNNING this time of year (when it's not raining!!) so don't miss out on the great opportunities to snap some fun and creative shots of your pup/s. Whether you're outside walking, frolicking at the park or beach, in the backyard, or just at home playing, take out your phone (or camera!) and start snapping/shooting (as in taking photos of your doggo!)

5. Learn some new tricks
Spice up your dog's autumn with some new fun tricks! It's a great way to bond with your dog even more, and to also stimulate them mentally and physically. If your dog already knows the basic tricks, such as stay, sit, and down, it's time to teach them how to roll over, shake hands, or even how to do a high five!
