Best Dog-Friendly Activities This Fall

Fall is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the cooler weather with your furry friend. You don't need to worry about the heat anymore or leaving your pup at home while you go off and have all the fun. There are so many things to do, from going on hikes to visiting pumpkin patches and apple orchards. And what's better than enjoying the season with your best friend by your side? We've gathered some great dog-friendly activities to do this autumn.

Popular Activities You Can Do With Your Dog


  • Go On a Hike
  • Not just us humans enjoy exploring new places and enjoying nature. So do our four-legged friends. Hikes and travels create an even stronger bond between the owner and the dog. Dogs get to explore new smells and sounds, while you get to enjoy quality time with your furry friend. Go ahead and add a hike to activities you can do with your dog this fall. Just remember to bring all hiking essentials with you, especially if you will be staying out for a while!

  • Go On Vacation
  • Another way to make autumn memorable for yourself and your furry friend is to travel together! After all, your pup also needs new experiences. Check out pet-friendly Airbnbs or hotels in the area you'll be visiting to make sure your whole family is comfortable. Then, you can enjoy all the best dog-friendly fall activities without having to leave your pup at home. Have you been to LA? The home of the world entertainment industry is also a place of great dog-friendly activities, Los Angeles has a lot to offer. Austin could also be a great place to visit since it cools down a little in the fall and you can adventure together all day, and there are plenty of things to do with dogs in Austin.

    If the dog is afraid of noise, and crowds, it is better to pick quiet places, a nature getaway would be a great option! We also recommend packing with you some familiar things, like the dog’s favorite toys so they adapt better to an unfamiliar place.

    When you and your dog find themselves in a new environment, you learn to trust each other and support each other even more. For dogs, nothing is more important than being with their family. 

    What Are Some Fun Things to Do With My Dog This Fall?


  • Autumn Photoshoot
  • Another fun activity you can do with your dog in the autumn season is a photo shoot. There are plenty of places to choose from - like a pumpkin patch, an apple orchard, or even your own backyard. All you need is a camera and some props (like leaves, pumpkins, or apples) and you're all set. This is a great way to capture some memories of you and your pup that you can look back on for years to come.

  • Celebrate Oktoberfest
  • Autumn is the time for live music, beer, and sausages. And, if your dog is sociable, and not afraid of noise and crowds, imagine how much joy you will bring by visiting Oktoberfest. And if this never occurred to you as one of the fun things to do with dogs, give it a try. Just equip yourself with a guide on going to events with your dog - and you're good to go!

    Your pup can meet new friends there, just don't tell them you're going to eat a couple of dozen sausages without them. Well, about bееr, evеn more so.

  • Halloween Party 
  • Want to level up your fall even more? Throw an epic Halloween party for your pup! This is a great way to show off your creative side and have some fun with your furry friend. You can make homemade costumes, decorate your home, and even make some Halloween-themed treats for your pup. This is sure to be a party they'll never forget.

On those days, let your pup play with a dog activity treat toy, play a little tug, or have a playdate - there are many dog-friendly options available for great entertainment for dogs on a rainy day!
