1.  Go Camping

If you’ve never gone camping with your dog, you’re missing out!  Whether it be more on the glamping side, or straight up roughing it tent style, camping is a fun way to bond with your pet and the outdoors.  Louisiana has many camp sites to choose from, but my personal recommendation would have to be Fontainebleau State Park on the North Shore, which is just a short drive from New Orleans. Check out this list for more Louisiana State Parks.

2.  Visit a Park

One thing Louisiana doesn’t have a shortage of is parks, and that includes both dog and human parks! If you’re in the Baton Rouge area, consider checking out the large Burbank Dog Park.  If you’re in the New Orleans area, City Park is a lovely picturesque option for all.

3.  Grab a Drink

Did you know you could celebrate happy hour with your dog!?  If not, well now you know!  If large dog friendly patios and endless beer options sound like your thing, then a  visit to The Bulldog, with locations in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, needs to be on your to do list!

4.  Tour the French Quarter

There’s no place quite like the French Quarter that can offer such a great variety of food, culture, and history.  You can make an entire day out of just walking around the Quarter, so next time you’re headed that way, don’t forget to bring your dog too!

5.  Go Shopping

Some pets love shopping just as much as their humans!  The next time you’re out running errands for pet supplies, bring your dog along for the ride because there are many pet friendly places for them to visit!  Tractor Supply Co.® is a pet friendly store that comes to mind and shopping there for your pets just got better! They now carry more of your favorite Purina® products, which means a larger selection of Purina ONE Dog, Purina Pro Plan, Purina Cat Chow, Fancy Feast and Kit N Caboodle, making it a one-stop-shop for all your dog food and pet needs.
