The only thing better than spending time with your furry friend is doing fun activities with them in summer! So, we’ve put together a list of ideas that we know both you and your pets will enjoy over the next few months.
Moonlight Cinema is back for 2019 with dog-friendly sessions in Melbourne, as well as Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane. Featuring advanced screenings of Second Act, The Favourite and Storm Boy, it’s the perfect activity to bring your furry friend along to. The season finishes in March, so get in quick to secure your Gold Grass Package.
If you’re worried about being in an outdoor space with your best friend, you can try the drive-in. The Lunar Drive in Dandenong for example allows dogs, as long as it’s on a lead at all times and does not enter the cafe. Plus, doggy doos must be collected which we can all agree to a fair call!
Gourmet Pawprints now offers a winery tour around the great wine regions of Victoria for both you and your pooch. On the bus, there’s a seat for both of you, as well as doggy seat belts, blankets and gift bags. Your pet will even be spoilt with a pooch massage and movie during lunch. For pricing and to book, see https://gourmetpawprints.com.au/.
If you’re already into yoga, why not try train your best bud to join you. Check out these two fitness fanatics!
Did you know you can become a volunteer, with your dog, and visit places such as hospitals, nursing homes, mental health units, nursing homes, rehabilitation centres and children with special needs? It’s called pet therapy. See the Delta Society, Lort Smith Animal Hospital and PAWS Pet Therapy to find out more about what’s involved.
Bar and Food Truck Stop:
Everyone loves a food truck, and with up to seven trucks onsite at once, you’ll be sure to enjoy Welcome to Thornbury. At this licensed venue, dogs are not only welcomed, they’re encouraged. It’s the perfect activity for a balmy Saturday night. To check out the truck roster, head over to https://welcometothornbury.com/
If your dog likes to paddle in the ocean, you should take them to one of Melbourne’s dog friendly beaches. Our favourite is Brighton Dog Beach, as there is plenty of space for your pup to splash about and for you to throw a ball around. If it’s their first time at the beach, they’ll be quick to work out that sea water isn’t for drinking. So, don’t forget to bring them some fresh water to drink afterwards.
