Summer Fun for Cool Dogs

Summer brings the hot weather so how do you keep cool and have fun with your dogs? Go to the at the mall...see a movie?  Although these my not sound like typical activities your would enjoy with your dog they are options for cool summer fun.

Like to shop?

The Promenade Shops at Centerra, a mall in Loveland, Colorado is very dog friendly.  Dogs are allowed in all the common areas and in many of the mall's large variety of shops. Stickers designate the stores that allow leashed or carried dogs. More than half of the mall's 60+ stores allow you to shop with your pup.

Otay Ranch Town Center Mall in Chula Vista, California is a great place to visit with your pet but you may not get much shopping done.  This mall is home to a dog park with 10,000 square feet of fun for your pooch.

Enjoy a Movie...

The District at Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, Nevada is a shopping, dining and community park area where pets are welcome and part of the activity. Here, every Friday and Saturday evening (May through October) is movie night!  Spread out a blanket and you and your pup can watch movies, and eat popcorn, under the stars.

Hit the Beach!

8th Avenue Beach, Asbury Park, New Jersey. Between the hours of 6PM and 9AM Asbury Park's 8th Avenue beach is "Dog Beach"! Dogs are allowed to run off-leash but must be sociable and well behaved.

At Snyder Park's "Bark Park" in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, dogs and their people can enjoy a swim at "Canine Beach". Permits are required.  Yearly or weekly permits can be purchased for year-round swimming.

Nickerson Beach, Lido Blvd., South Shore Nassau County Long Island. Here, dogs are not allowed on the beach.  However, there is a beautiful dog park where dogs and their humans can have fun, socialize and enjoy the cool breezes from Atlantic Ocean.

Get Ready to Have Fun!

Whether at the mall, beach, or any public area, please be sure your pup is well behaved and respectful of others.  Leash or carry your dog where required and always carry bags for clean-up when needed.  For small dogs, the Dog Carrier Sling Bag is great for shopping or visiting not only during the summer months but any time of the year.  Perfect for carrying your pup, they are both fashionable and comfortable for you and your pet. Visit Paw Print Island Pet Boutique to see a variety of styles, sizes and colors of Dog Carrier Sling Bags as well as Embellished Dog Collars and other fashionable hand knit and handmade items for your furry friends.
