5 Fun Activities to Do With Your Dog

Tired of going to the dog park? Ready to take your puppy somewhere other than just around the neighborhood? We found five fun ideas for you to consider.

Go To a Museum

Not all museums are full of fragile sculptures and priceless artwork. Some are outside or contain things that are a bit more friendly for wagging tales. These might not be places you would head to, but it could be something fun and different for both of you.

  • Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum - Cape May, NJ
  • Travel Town Museum at Griffith Park - Los Angeles, CA
  • McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park - Scottsdale, AZ
  • Cool Shots Selfie Museum - Orange Beach, AL
  • American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog - New York, NY

Grab a Drink

Lots of breweries around the country allow your best fur friend to join you for a drink. Some have designated outside patio space for your dog to join you, while others will allow them inside as well.

  • Dog Friendly NYC Brewery Tour - Long Island City, NY
  • Eberle Winery - Paso Robles, CA
  • 10 Torr Distilling and Brewing - Reno, NV
  • Snowbank Brewing - Fort Collins, CO
  • River Watch Brewery - Augusta, GA

Take them out to a Ball Game

A lot of baseball teams, both minor and major league, have specified games each season that you can bring your dog with you to enjoy the game. 

The Seattle Mariners have a few days each season that they call "Bark at the Park" You can bring your dog to the game where they can have the opportunity to run the bases. You can also meet some dogs that need a home, and maybe bring home a new friend.

Check your local team's schedule to find out their dog friendly days.

Take a Boat Ride

If you live near water, you may be able to take your pup on a dog friendly water tour. Whether you want to look for dolphins and whales or just enjoy some fresh air and sunshine there are plenty of options available. Always check with the tour company first, but here are a few we found.

  • Beach Buddy Tours - Cape Coral, FL
  • Mercury's Canine Cruise - Chicago, IL
  • Cape May Whale Watcher - Cape May, NJ
  • Biloxi Shrimping Trip - Biloxi, MS
  • Monterey Bay Whale Watch - Monterey, CA
