One of the best reasons for owning a cockapoo, or a dog in general, is that it is a whole love of fun to get out there and explore the world. Whether it’s a solo trip with just your dog for company or a full-on family holiday, experiencing the world with a four-legged friend in tow is awesome.
If you are looking for great adventures to enjoy with your dog, but are running short on ideas, we are here to help. With summer just around the corner and the weather (mostly!) improving, you have plenty of opportunities to get out there with your pooch.
Contents and Quick Navigation
Could there be anything better than hitting the road on your own or with your nearest and dearest for a road trip to somewhere new and exciting? Yes, hitting the road on your own or with your nearest and dearest for a road trip with your canine buddy to somewhere new and exciting! Although the destination is the best part, you can still make your actual trip there and back fun too.
Get Out There and Swim With Your Dog
It will really depend on how your dog feels about water, as cockapoos often either love it or hate it. If your dog is more the former than the latter, though, make the most of it when you are visiting places where you can swim. Sure, it’s enormous fun just to watch your dog splash around, but if you want to ramp up the good times, get in there and join him or her. Of course, you need to be cautious, but don’t let that ruin the fun.
Canoeing or Kayaking
While it may seem like a strange thing to do with your furry friend, you’d be amazed at how many kayakers and canoeists take their dogs out with them on the water. If you want something a little calmer, you could opt for a more traditional rowing boat.
One of the best “extreme” water sports you can enjoy with your cockapoo, as long as they are not afraid of the water is paddle boarding. They can sit on the board with you as you paddle gently around a lake or somewhere a little more challenging like off the coast, and have the freedom to jump into the water and back on to your board.
Perhaps the most obvious adventure to go on with your dog is a hike (don’t forget your dog backpack carrier). If your dog enjoys walks wherever you go, you’re bound to have a positive experience hiking up the nearest hill in your local area. Or you could try something a little more challenging and take on a peak like Snowdon or Scafell Pike. Be dog-led when hiking, though, and see your pooch as the pacemaker (the slowest in the group), even if he or she is not always the slowest. Pack enough supplies for all involved and you can even make a long day trip out of it, depending on which hill you decide to take on.
