Good Ways to Exercise that Energetic Pup

From puppies, who seem to have limitless amounts of energy, to older dogs of more energetic breeds, many of our pets have so much energy that we sometimes find ourselves wishing they could share just a little bit of it. While making sure your dog gets enough exercise to keep them healthy and wear them out can be hard in some places, Austin is not one of them. Try out some of the following exercises and activities with your energetic pet in some beloved Austin locations.

Bea, a border collie/blue heeler mix, loves to play fetch at Town Lake

Play fetch – Town Lake, Zilker Park, and many other local parks offer large areas perfect for spending an hour outside throwing your dog a ball or frisbee. For those dogs that like toys and to run, playing fetch is a great way to get rid of some of their energy

Take them on a run – Especially as the weather begins to cool down, going on a jog with your energetic pup is a great way to keep both you and your pet in shape, not to mention a fantastic way to bond.

Go swimming – Although swimming is not every dog’s favorite thing to do, some cannot get enough. Check out Red Bud Isle, Town Lake, and the Greenbelt trails, all of which have great places for your dog to swim.
