6 Best Activities To Do With Your Dog On A Rainy Day?

6 Best Activities To Do With Your Dog On A Rainy Day?

What to do when the weather turns so bad that even your dog doesn’t want to go outside? No worries, there are still plenty of activities you can do with your dog on a rainy day and we have listed the TOP 6 of them right here!

We are very confident your pup will find some if not all of these super exciting! After all, spending time with you is the best reward you can give to your dog!


 

Make some simple and tasty doggie treats!

Your dog is guaranteed to elevate your status even above superhero for these yummy and healthy home made treats! It’s heaps of fun to make them and you know exactly what goes into them. Maybe you can teach your pup a new trick and reward him/her with your own special treats.


Visit a dog friendly pub!

What’s more comforting than having a hearty meal with your favourite glass of wine or a beer on a rainy day! These 51 pubs in Sydney have made it even more appealing by inviting your dog inside the public bar out of the rain. Winner in our books! And if you are in Melbourne, here are the Pubs in Melbourne welcoming your dog inside!


Arrange a playdate!

Invite your dog’s best mates for a visit! There’s nothing more fun than exploring toys together and maybe engage in a tug-of-war or just simply having a little wrestle with your best buddies.

If you don’t have your dog’s best mates contact details, you can also find friends through Pupsy Social. Create a profile for your pup, search for friends (age, area, breed) and send them a friend request from your dog! You can then message them and organise tail wagging playdates!


Visit a Dog Yoga Class!

Who would have thought? Yes, we have been doing our research and it’s finally come to Sydney: Dog Yoga!

During The Mindful Dog’s Yoga Class, your dog will learn how to practise a set of postures, movements and expressions, in order to relax, calm down and cope with the inevitable stressors of modern dog life.

The benefit of Dog Yoga lies in how and when your dog learns to apply the taught postures and movements: the sets become your dog’s “go-to” behaviours in times of stress, because they experience them as self-soothing, relaxing and calming.

Sounds like a great way to spend some quality time with your pooch and teach an anxious dog how to relax!


Try a new game or DIY toy!

Shine or rain, your dog loves to spend time with you. So come up with some rewarding games you can play indoors. Hide & Seek is surely one of the all time favourites (just remember to let your dog find you every time). Also plenty of educational games such as finding hidden treats or learning a new trick are super rewarding for your pooch!

We all want to spoil our dogs with new toys, treats, clothing and other dog accessories. But this doesn’t have to be a killer blow to your bank account. With a little bit of imagination and DIY spirit you can turn almost anything at home into an interesting toy. Check out some inspiration on DIY Dog Toys!


Plan a holiday with your dog!

Rainy days provide a pur-fect opportunity to sit back and plan your next holiday with your dog! Whether you are after a beach destination, go camping, visiting one of the iconic wine regions or simply ideas for a short city break there is plenty of inspiration available on our Dog Friendly Travel Guides section.


As much as we love the sun and warm weather, occasional rainy days aren’t that bad after all. Have fun with whatever activities you choose to do with your dog. We are sure they will love spending time with you.

Large green area combined with the dog friendly beach and water access is guaranteed to make your dog happy.

The Newport is just a short drive away across the water and has more than plenty of drink and food options to choose from. And your pup is welcome to join you anywhere in the pub!

It is a live music venue so evenings are probably out of the question for those fluffy ears.

Prince Alfred Park & The Duck Inn

This is a great Sunday afternoon combo. Prince Alfred Park is 24h off the lead and plenty of room to sniff and chase. It is a great example of how parks can fulfil the needs of the entire community. Sports fields, outdoor swimming pools, playgrounds, off the lead areas and place to sit and relax are all made possible with smart planning and park management.

The local secret, The Duck Inn is only a few minutes drive or 5-10 minutes walk away from the park. It has a cosy and chilled out atmosphere with comfy couches and welcoming English style pub area. Dogs are allowed inside except for the formal dining area.

From the northern end you can enjoy the ocean breeze with the entire Bondi Beach in front of you, while the coastal walk curving around Tamarama and Bronte opens towards the south. Dogs are allowed off the lead between 4.30pm-8.30am, which gives you plenty of time for a play before sunset.

Follow the Coastal Walk down the hill towards Bondi Beach. Just after the Bondi Pavillion on Campbell Parade you will find the Bondi Beach Public Bar. This eastern suburbs newcomer is a great place  for an “after play” refreshment. BBPB is the only place in Eastern Suburbs where dogs are allowed inside the bar! This brand new bar has some cocktails to die for and delicious Mediterranean inspired food menu.

 

Other dog friendly places nearby:

Bucket List

St Leonards Park & The Greens

This is our favourite combo for families with dogs. St Leonards Park is 24h off the lead and offers a large area for you and your family to play with the furry members.

And once the youngest members feel like changing the scenery, the dog friendly bowling club The Greens is right in the middle of it all! It is very popular spot with families to gather on Sundays for a casual lunch or special occasions e.g. birthdays. Dogs are allowed outside but unfortunately not inside or in the bowling area.

 

Happy adventures everyone! Why don’t you leave us a comment and let us know your favourite Park & Pub combos in Sydney.
