Pet Friendly Fall Activities

Luckily, there are plenty of fun things for dogs to do outside, that they normally wouldn’t enjoy during the hot summer months. Keep reading for some pet friendly fall activities and fun places to take your dog this season.


Going for a hike with your pup is a great way to enjoy nature and get fit at the same time. If your dog is athletic and needs to burn off some energy, hikes will become your new best friend this season. There are different types of trails all over the Valley that have incredible views, and some are puppy proof! Here are a few to check out soon: 

  • North Mountain National Trail – Moderate 
  • Dreamy Draw Loop – Moderate
  • Shaw Butte Trail – Moderate 
  • Phoenix Mountain Preserve – Easy to Moderate

Dog Parks: 

One of the best outdoor activities for dogs is to enjoy some time at the local dog park. With temperatures cooling down, pet parents can play fetch with their fur kid – without all the sweat and heat exhaustion. Dog parks allow pups (and their owners)  to socialize and get some fresh air at the same time. Below are a few pawesome dog parks that your pup will love: 

  • Cosmo Dog Park – Gilbert area
  • Paradise Valley Dog Park – Phoenix/ Paradise Valley area
  • Tempe Sports Complex Dog Park – Tempe area
