Adventure with Dogs
That’s what I’m all about, with my dogs of course. Being a nomadic traveler, full-timing in my motorhome with my 2 dogs, we do find adventure every day. But some days are truly mundane or we are stuck inside due to weather. So I have to invent adventure too!
Each day, everyone can find adventure in their lives. It can include a walk around the neighborhood or a real hike on a lovely trail. Dogs find adventure in everything they do, even the backyard first thing in the morning; they go check all the smells, to see what has changed from the day before or to see what lizard has walked by, bird, etc. So finding adventure in your everyday life is doable, the key is mimicking your dog and looking for the gems in everyday life.
How about making a commitment to finding adventure each week with your dog? On Monday start your plan for 1 adventure outing for the week. It could include walking in a city park that is new to you. You could drive to a different neighborhood and walk the streets of that neighborhood. Same thing for RVers. Sometimes we are in a park for weeks and the walks start to become boring. So I mix it up, drive to a different location, walk a different direction, find a new trail or pathway to walk. It’s important for you and your dog to do this. I am confident that dogs love going to new places, it’s exciting, it’s stimulating, and it’s new! It’s important to remember, the walk is their everything. It’s their TV, book, iPad, and phone. It’s very important to let your dog sniff, explore and take in all the fabulous scent.
Are you up for the challenge? One new place each week, it’s easy and doable. If this is too easy, up the ante, make it 3 new adventures this week!
It’s always more fun if you Take Your Dog Along!
