Dog-Friendly Activities to Do During Fall in SLC

Depending on the breed, dogs need anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours of exercise every day.

Maybe you’re used to walking the dog around the neighborhood and want to switch up your routine. Now that the fall weather has set in, it’s the perfect time for a change of scenery.

In SLC, dog-friendly activities are plentiful, so grab your coffee and the leash. We’re going to show you some of the best places to take your furry friend.

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin patches are one of the best things to do outside in the fall weather. Opening on September 24 this year, you and your pup can enjoy “Hey Maze!” at Pack Farms. 

Pumpkin patches are not only dog-friendly but kid-friendly, too! So take your kids down the PVC roller slide or challenge them to a game of tetherball.

Before you head out, don’t forget to stir up a blend of your coffee from home. Click here to get in the spooky spirit with our Halloween coffee recipes.

Take a Hike

Hiking is one of the best fall activities for exercising your dog. But, did you know it’s is good for you, too?

Other than physical exercise, hiking improves your mental health by relieving stress and anxiety. It also protects against depression, especially if you’ve got your four-legged companion by your side.

There are plenty of places to walk right here in Park City, too! Rob’s Trail, Iron Mountain, and Round Valley are a few of our favorites.

Plan a Camping Trip

Your SLC dog-friendly activities don’t have to end after the walk. So why not spend a few nights camping out under the stars?

First, you need to see which campsites in Utah are dog-friendly. After you’re sure the campground will accept your pup, look into the kind of trails there. Are they accessible for dogs?

You’ll also need to make sure your pup is up to date on his flea and tick medicine. The risk of contracting a disease from a tick in Utah is low, but you should still be careful when engaging in outdoor activities with your dog.

This includes keeping them on the trail at all times. Try not to let them wander into the brush. You may also want to consider investing in a topical repellent. 

Lastly, don’t neglect to check you and your dog for ticks frequently.
