The leaves are dropping and fall is finally here. At Gear Wag we love an excuse to get out and play with our dogs. Here are 6 ways you can take full advantage of fall with your dog.

Take A Hike

Whether hiking or walking, the cooler temperatures of fall make it easier to go farther. Additionally the streets and sidewalks are cooler so your dogs paws won’t be overwhelmed. If your dog does show sensitivity to the trails or the streets try applying some Mushers Secret to their paws.

Pumpkins!

Give Your Dog A Pumpkin

Throw a big pumpkin on the ground (to get a good crack in it) and let your dogs have at it. Or give each of your dogs a small pumpkin to play with.

Rake The Leaves (and let your dog play in them)


Dogs love new opportunities to learn and play, give them a chance to experience something fun and new my making a big pile of leaves and encouraging them to play in it. If your dog is fearful use caution when introducing them to this game.
