Sparky Steps - 5 Fun things to do with your pup in the Spring

Fun things to do with your pup in the Spring

Spring is finally here! Your pup is surely as anxious to get back outside as you are after a long winter. We here at Sparky Steps know that cabin fever is real. So we’ve created a list of some fun things you and your dog can do now that the season of new beginnings is upon us!


Go on a hike

If you think you’re tired of the same old walking route, imagine how your pup feels! They’ve had to endure shorter walks and dashes into the backyard for the past few months to do their business. Why not take them someplace new and refreshing? Explore the trails and let your pooch’s nose run wild with all of the plants that are blooming! Check out the list below for some awesome hiking destinations! http://chicago.cbslocal.com/top-lists/best-dog-friendly-hiking-trails-near-chicago/


Find a dog park

We’re sure your dog loves you, but they’re probably anxious to make new friends. Dog parks are the perfect place for your pet to mingle. Take the leash off. Let your pup run around and socialize. Below are some no-leash dog parks in Chicago. https://www.bringfido.com/attraction/parks/city/chicago_il_us/


Check out a dog-friendly restaurant or bar

Warmer weather means that you’re going to want to get out and kick it with your friends. Why not bring your pup? There are some great outdoor restaurants and bars that would love to serve your furry friend. The list below highlights some awesome spots in Chicago to bring your canine companion! http://chicago.eater.com/maps/dog-friendly-chicago-bars-restaurants


Go to the beach

If it’s warm enough, let your pup paddle around in Lake Michigan! Bring a tennis ball and some treats, and have an epic game of fetch! Below are a few beaches that you may want to consider checking out. https://www.bringfido.com/attraction/beaches/city/chicago_il_us/


Have a doggy party

Hey, all of the neighborhood dogs are itching to get outside too! Break out the sprinkler and grill and invite some friends over! After spending all winter cooped up, everyone deserves some time to catch up and stretch their legs! (We get it, trust us!)
