You’re overflowing with excitement as you bring home a furry, wiggly bundle of puppy joy. Or maybe you’ve adopted an adult dog and are giving them a new lease on life. Either way, you’re on the precipice of a whole new life full of adventures with your new pup.
We have a few ideas to help you get started.
Is dinnertime the highlight of your pup’s day? Then why not feature pup-safe treats on your dog’s bucket list? You could contact your local dog bakery and purchase a variety of treats in drool-worthy flavors.
Some restaurants welcome furry customers by offering a dog menu. You could take your furry companion out on a food tour of your city. Starbucks has its famous Pup Cup, and Brewster’s Ice Cream has a Pup Sundae.
If your pup has a sensitive stomach and can’t enjoy all of the edible delights, you can let them feel like they’re participating. Bring along your disposable dog bowl, and they can eat their safe food while you enjoy your lunch.
The Toy Enthusiasts
You’ve taken your furry companion to the dog park, and your arm grew tired long before they did. Or maybe you buy toys and place bets on how long they’ll last. You have a toy enthusiast on your hands. Why not treat your pooch to a shopping trip and let them pick out a few new toys?
If your dog loves to chase a ball, why not blow their mind with more balls than they can handle? You could fill a kiddie pool with balls and let your dog loose. This black lab had his dream come true with an avalanche of tennis balls.
The Outdoorsy Dog
If you have the vacation time, you could go on an epic road trip across the country to visit the nation’s parks. If you don’t have the time, you can go on a mini outdoor adventure in your hometown. Throw on their harness and leash and head out to the backyard, local park, or the beach for a nap in the sun.
If you have a larger dog, they’ll love running and swimming by your side. Smaller dogs might struggle to keep up, but that doesn’t mean they can’t join in the fun. Try out a dog backpack and let them ride along.
Fun For Everyone
Don’t forget to add something to the bucket list that’s for you. It’s important to have some bonding time with your pup. Plan to do something special together that will help you create memories for years to come.
You could sit down for a photo shoot. Try to do something that you love doing together. It could be as simple as rolling in the grass. Then there is the old standby of cuddling up and taking a nap on the couch.
Celebrate Your Pup
It may sound silly at first, but a doggie bucket list is a perfect way to bond with your pup. After all, they’ve been there every step of the way, through the good and bad. A bucket list lets them enjoy their passions and strengthen their bond with you.
Be ready for any adventure your doggie bucket list takes you on with the right dog supplies.
