Spring is finally here and the only member of your family that hated winter more than you is your dog. Now that the sun is shining, it’s time for you and the pup to go stretch your legs. Whether that means a nice long walk nearby or a full-blown dog adventure, we’ve got some great tips for enjoying the Spring with your dog. Until the pollen comes, that is.
Take a walk but better
All dogs, big small and everything in between, love to let their inner Grey Wolf out whenever they can. And what better what to make that happen with a nice trail walk? There are tons of great resources for finding the perfect trail or stream to explore but we like Hike With Your Dog. They have lists of dog-friendly trails in every state so pick one close to you and get out there.
Get out on the water
Dogs love the water. You love the water. It’s a match made in heaven. Professional services like Jupiter Outdoor Center can get you and your four-legged friend on a paddle board this spring. Out on the water you’ll find new smells for your dog and a good Instagram pic for you.

That’s Taz, a Husky-mix who loves to paddle board, with Jen after their trip on the Jupiter Inlet on Thursday afternoon. Looking for something to do Friday or this weekend? See manatees, sea turtles and more from kayaks and paddle boards for rent at the Jupiter Outdoor Center. JOC plans to open a kayak/canoe rental concession stand at Riverbend Park in the fall. #jupiteroutdoorcenter #jupiterflorida #paddleboarding #kayaking #staycation
Skip the kayak, hit the beach
Worried your dog might not sit in a kayak? Think they want to focus more on the water? We don’t blame them. You can skip the boat and just hit up one of the great beaches in South Florida. We suggest heading to Jupiter and Juno Dog Beach with your furry friend. It’s truly a dog-friendly, beach lovers paradise.
Try a new dog park or dog-friendly business
Look, we all love the neighborhood dog park but maybe it’s time to try a new spot. Dreher Park in West Palm Beach has tons of space for your pooch to run around with his friends. CityPaws at Howard Park is the perfect spot to let your dog loose with two areas for large and small dogs. And if you want to switch things up even more — your pup will love being free on the patio at O’Shea’s Pub for Yappy Hour every Monday night!
