With the fall season rapidly approaching, here are a couple of activities that you and your fur baby can add to your fall bucket list to do together to celebrate the season!
Picking apples is the perfect fall activity to do with your dog. Ammodts Apple Orchard and LuceLine Orchard are great dog-friendly apple orchards located in Minnesota. You and your pup can snack on apples together, pick them, and then bring them home and create a delicious treat.
Go For a Walk, Drive, or Hike
You and your furry friend can take in the fall colors by going for a nice long walk, taking a drive down the scenic route with the windows rolled down, or by going for a hike. There are many dog-friendly hiking trails located in Minnesota that are ideal for exploring and admiring the fall leaves.
Visit a local Taproom or Restaurant
Do you ever wish that you could have a beer, a bite to eat, and spend time with your pup? Luckily, at Unleashed Hounds and Hops, your dog can hang out with you and other dogs while you grab a beer and some food from the taproom. Saturdays and Sundays in October you can stop by Unleashed Hounds and Hops for BarktoberFest, where they offer a specialized menu, prizes, and great brews. There are other local outdoor dog-friendly restaurants that you can take your pup to though, I would double-check with a quick phone call to make sure that they are in fact pet friendly.
Plan matching Halloween Costumes
Whether you plan on going trick or treating or not, it is always fun to dress up for the occasion. Once you and your dog have decided on your Halloween costumes, you can take a photo and enter the Animal Care Foundation Pet Halloween Costume Contest. The winner will receive a Starbucks gift card!
