10 Things to Do with Your Dog This Fall

Here’s my list of the top 10 things to do with your dog this fall

• Visit an Apple Orchard
Picking your own apples with the family is a fun activity to do in fall, so why not bring your dog along? Be sure to check with the orchard first to see if dogs are allowed.

• Go Hiking
This is a great way to enjoy all the pretty colors of fall as well as getting some exercise for both you and your dog in a new environment.

• Make a Pile of Leaves
Dogs love to run through a big pile of leaves. It’s like a dog’s version of a kid’s ball pit.

• Get a cute Halloween Costume!

• Visit the Dog Park
This is a great time of year for fun play dates at the park. Your pet can run and play to their heart’s content without you having to worry about the hot weather.

Go Pumpkin Picking

• Walk along the Waterfront
There are many lovely scenic areas around the lake to walk with your pet. Try walking along the waterfront in Ajax or Downtown Toronto for a scenic walk both you and your pet will enjoy.

• Try Bikejoring
Does your dog never seem to tire from long walks? Do you enjoy cycling? This sport combines your dog’s love for exercise with your passion for cycling.

• Make Fall Themed treats
By visiting the pumpkin patch and apple orchard you can make some yummy apple or pumpkin themed treats for your pet!

• Visit the Pet Expo
Bring along your pet to do some fun doggy socializing while you see the dogs sports shows as well as dog-themed vendors who sell lots of yummy treats, toys, and accessories! This event will be on November 18th and 19th at the International Centre in Mississauga.

Why does my dog’s breath smell?

Bad breath (halitosis) in a dog or cat is usually because of poor dental health.  Occasionally a dog or cat may have good teeth and still have bad breath in which case the diet is usually the cause. This is relatively rare, however, compared to the likelihood of a dental issue.
