Sometimes giving your pet the exercise they need can prove to be a challenge. Sure, you can allow them to run around for a bit once you get home from work each day, but they need more physical activity than that! If you’re a dog owner, chances are you know this and you spend some time on the weekends taking your dog to the park to play catch or simply to walk around the track. Not only is this a great opportunity for your dog to get some exercise, but it’s great for you too!
During the winter months, we might slack off and miss a few weekends of outdoor time with our pet due to the cold weather. However, the weather is warming up and it’s time to get back to business. After all, there’s no greater feeling than playing catch with your dog in the park – especially when they, and you, make a few friends along the way.
If you’re interested in attending an event and bringing your dog with you, we have the perfect solution. You can attend the 2020 Mutt Strutt!
