After the Fourth of July, summer feels like a fast downhill slide into fall. But hold up, mother puppers—we still have a whole fluffin’ MONTH (and then some!) to check items off the bucket list. Here’s a peek at what we’re planning for these dog days of summer. How many do you think you can get done before Labor Day?
- Take a hike (we mean that in the best way pawsible). These four trails come with a suggested dog-friendly brewery pairing. You’re welcome.
- Plan a staycation. No need to get out of dog (er, dodge) this summer when Denver’s pup-friendly hotels are waiting to give you a tail-wagging welcome.
- Skip the W-A-L-K for a B-I-K-E ride. These five tools make it easy to enjoy two wheels with your dog in tow.
- A Pup on SUP paddleboarding class brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “doggy paddle.”
- Or, if you need to practice your balance on land first, sign you and your floof up for a doggy yoga class. Who does a better downward dog?
- Grab a book and belly up (for scratchies, of course) to a dog-friendly patio to whittle away a lazy afternoon. That’s what summer is all about—just make sure you follow pawper patio etiquette.
- But if it’s too hot, these eight Colorado breweries welcome dogs inside. Don’t forget your Dog-Friendly Brewery Pass!
- Learn a new skill together. Dock jumping or agility training, anyone?
- Shop ’til you drop with the best shopping pawtner (who won’t judge how many times you swipe your credit card).
- Plan an end-of-summer shindog for your pooch and his pals. He deserves it for being such a good boy.
How do you and your dog plan to enjoy the second half of summer? Woof at us in the comments, and be sure to tag #SidewalkDog in all your adventures so we can ruv ’em.
