What You & Your Furry Friend Can Get Up To This Long Weekend!

The classic long weekend BBQs and mini vay-cays are no hidden secret to your average Aussie... but you don’t have to leave your furry friends behind when you head out to party this long weekend! We’ve got you and your pet sorted.

1. Hugo’s Ice Creamery

Hugo's Ice Creamery is one of the only dog friendly ice creameries in Australia, located in Brisbane.

If you're not from Brissy, don't fret, they also ship all over Australia, so you can treat yourself and your pooch this weekend to a sneaky new year’s resolution cheat to beat the heat! 

2. Take your four-legged friend on a picnic! 

We know, sometimes a picnic with your dog can be difficult as you two can't necessarily share food but that doesn't mean you won't have a killer time. 

Be sure to bring along their favourite ball and a few special treats so they don't become too envious of your spread. You can purchase a range of handmade adorable doggy treats from either Veggie Paws or Huds and Tote.

3. Have a cooking day with and for your pooch!

Next time you're feeling a cheeky bake day but don't feel like eating an entire cake to yourself, bake for your dog instead! 

You can simply bake your your own doggy treats using dog whisperer Cesar Milan’s healthy dog recipes

4. Hire a puppy sitter!

Okay, this kind of goes against the nature of this blog - but, if you already have non-dog-friendly plans this weekend, hire a puppy sitter so you're lil friend isn't left on his lonesome. 

Lend a Pet allows you to meet and loan your pet to a safe home for the weekend.

5. Don't have a pet? Borrow one! 

DogShare and BorrowMyPooch both allow you to enjoy all the perks of a pet without the responsibility of actually owning one - kind of like being a fun aunty! 

Is there anything you and your pooch like to get up to on the weekend? Let us know in the Facebook comments!
