10 Fun Fall Activities for You & Your Dog
Autumn is here and it’s time to enjoy the season. Though adjusting to our “new normal” may put a twist on our typical fall activities, there’s still plenty of fun to be had – and plenty of fun our furry friends can join in on! Here are our 10 favorite fall activities to try with your dog this year.
Go Apple or Pumpkin Picking
A trip to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard with the family is always fun, but even better with our furry friends by our side. Be sure to check with your local pumpkin patch or apple farm to see whether they are dog friendly. Keep your best bud leashed as you explore, and let your dog sniff out the perfect pumpkin or apples to bring home!
Go for a Hayride
Hayride’s aren’t limited to just the family – they can be a treat for your four-legged pals, too! If your dog loves the cool breeze brushing across his face during car rides, he is sure to love the cool air, scents, and fun sights as your trailer is pulled around by a truck or tractor.
Enjoy a Corn Maze Adventure
Getting lost in a corn maze becomes a whole lot easier with your best bud helping to navigate your way to the end! Corn mazes are a staple of fall fun and sure to be an enjoyable experience for you both.
Make Pumpkin Dog Cookies
Fall is the perfect time for everything pumpkin-flavored. Your pooch can be rewarded with the delicious taste of pumpkin this year too, with Bil-Jac Dessert Jacs Treats.
You can even take snack time up a notch by making a spooky fun and soft pumpkin dog cookie recipe featuring Bil-Jac Dessert Jacs. The recipe is simple and easy, and your dog will be wagging his tail for the pumpkin taste!

Pose for a Fall Photoshoot
There’s nothing like snapping the perfect photo with your canine pal! Take advantage of the beautiful fall scenery and pose for a picture paw-fect photoshoot with your dog. If you choose to capture your pooch more spontaneously, try our tips to set you and your dog up for selfie success.
Take a Nature Hike
Fall is one of the best times of year to appreciate nature, autumn colors, and explore new trails. Your furry friend will be the perfect adventure buddy as you head out to enjoy a fall hike, new scenery and daily physical activity.
Sometimes you need a little more than an adventurous hike to really explore the outdoors! Before the weather is too cold, a fall camping trip is the perfect way to bond with your dog, friends, or family and enjoy your camping destination of choice. Your dog will love spending some quality time with you on a mini vacation that involves plenty of campfire activities, hikes, or snuggles!
Play in the Backyard
Who says dogs can’t enjoy the yard work with you? As you rake up leaves, let your favorite furball outside to keep you company. There’s nothing cuter than watching your dog plunge into a pile of leaves or play “hide and sniff” games with his toys in the leaves. Just be ready for bath time after your backyard fun is over!
Cozy Up for a Movie Marathon
Once the cozy weather kicks in, it’s a great time to snuggle up with your furball on the couch and enjoy a movie marathon. Whether you take to seasonal films or top movies for dog lovers, your dog will be sure to appreciate the extra love and cuddle time!
Give Treats for Tricks
We all know that feeling of excitement and satisfaction we get when we teach our dogs a new trick. Whether you teach him how to be better behaved or how to make you smile, teaching your dog new behaviors can be very helpful and rewarding for you both. Check out our Training Videos hub for a few training ideas and tips from Celebrity Animal Trainer Joel Silverman.
