If you want to make the most of this season, here are six fun things you can enjoy doing with your dog:

1. Head to the Pumpkin Patch

Kids aren’t the only ones who will have a blast going to a pumpkin patch. You can also make your dog’s day by going to a Cincinnati pumpkin patch. Many pumpkin patches are quite dog-friendly as long as your pet is on a leash and you bring a bag to clean up after your pooch. You can always call a pumpkin patch before going to double-check their pet policy.

2. Enter Your Dog in a Costume Contest

Want to get your creative juices flowing? Then you’ll have an awesome time dressing your dog up in a Halloween costume. There are multiple pet costume contests around Cincinnati, so you’ll have no trouble finding one to enter. Whether you order the costume or make it from scratch, you can come up with one that’s perfect for your pet. And since many contests are on a day other than Halloween, your dog can enjoy wearing the costume again on the 31st.

3. Go Apple Picking

While pumpkin patches are the first place people often think of in regards to fall destinations, heading to an apple orchard can be an incredible fall experience as well. Like pumpkin patches, you can call an orchard before going to ensure they’re fine with dogs. A&M Farm Orchard, Brumbaugh Fruit & Fun Farm, Irons Fruit Farm and Karnes Orchard are a few examples of destinations near Cincinnati. You and your dog can drive to one for a really fun day or weekend trip.

4. Check Out an Off-Season Travel Destination

Fall is the busiest time of the year for some destinations like Salem, MA. But for many others, fall is a slow season. With a little research, you should be able to find a place where both you and your dog can go on a trip for a rate that’s much lower than during other times of the year.

5. Enjoy a Hike

There are plenty of great hiking destinations which are quite easy to access from Cincinnati. Now that the weather is cooler but not too cold, it’s the perfect opportunity to head out for a few hours of hiking with your pet. If you both have a blast doing this, you should consider turning your hiking outings into a full camping experience.

6. Play with a Football

Watching a great college or NFL game isn’t the only way to enjoy football during this season. Your dog will have a blast if you get a football and play fetch outside. Even if your dog is smaller, you should be able to find a football that it’s able to easily retrieve.
