Out of all the holidays on the calendar, how many of them can you truly celebrate with your dog? Christmas and Valentine’s Day, yes. But President’s Day, Flag Day, and Labor Day? Perhaps not.
One wonderful holiday to add to the “yes” list is Earth Day. It’s a natural! At that time of year, the springtime weather is calling you and your dog outdoors and, with all the people and other dogs milling about, the world can seem like one big dog park.
Off to the park
Many Earth Day celebrations take place in parks. This makes sense, of course, because in urban areas parks are as close as you can get to a “natural” Earth environment. And large parks can accommodate all the people and dogs that show up to celebrate. But before you head out to the festivities, check to make sure your local event and its venue are, indeed, dog friendly.
As with any fun day in the park with your dog, be sure to bring food, water, a leash, and everything you’ll need to clean up after nature calls.
