In the spring and summer, everyone wants to get outside and enjoy the sunny weather. And you may want to bring your loyal dog with you. But throwing a frisbee can get boring, plus your dog may not be interested in sitting there reading a book and enjoying the landscape. Whether you’re looking for big or small backyard ideas, here are a few products and ways to enjoy being outside with your good pets.

Tennis Ball Launcher

Tennis ball launchers are not just for practicing tennis - you can use them to play with your dog too! They give your dog hours of entertainment - without you tiring out your arm. Simply set up the device, turn it on, and place a ball at the top. And presto, it’s ready to go! Plus, you can purchase devices at dog height, so your dog can refill the toy on its own. You can even alternate between throwing it and loading the ball into the machine as the two of you play.

Agility Kit

Agility kits are a great way to keep your cute dogs happy and healthy, and to teach them new tricks. Your dog will be a regular show dog with these fun toys. Kits range in size and number of components, depending on what you want your dog to be able to do. One aspect is the tunnel, which you can lead your dog through and wait on the other side. A jumping bar will keep your dog limber and active. Another great part is the weaving poles. This one takes some training, but can be fun once they learn it. Positive reinforcement is always helpful with this toy, and keeps your dog active.

Automatic Sliding Door

When you’re heading outside to play with your dog, you may have a lot to carry. Their toys, your own items, even a leash or car keys if you're going somewhere. Possibly even an over excited dog jumping on you or the door, ready to go. The last thing you want to be worried about is how to open the door, or worse, drop everything. Instead, get an automated sliding door for your home. This way, you and your pet can easily come in and out, and enjoy all of these backyard ideas. 

Outdoor Sprinkler

Many dogs love to get wet, and be in the water. But not everyone wants their pet swimming and shedding in the pool, or you may not have a pool to begin with. Instead, get a sprinkler for your pet! Both of you can play with it, and if you’re not feeling up for it, you can enjoy watching them play in the water. Some sprinklers are even made specifically for dogs, and they can work it by pressing it with their paws. Add this to your wish list of luxury dog accessories! 

Different Kinds of Balls

Dogs love playing with tennis balls - but have you considered switching it up? Many companies have built creative new balls that your dogs will love. One is a Squeakerz Ball. It feels like a tennis ball, but has a toy squeaker inside of it. It combines two of your dog's favorite things! Next, are the Orbee-Tuff balls. They are more resilient than other balls, plus, have an inner pocket to hide your dog’s treats to fulfill their cravings. Lastly, are Roller Balls, which can be thrown, bounced, and more! The inside can also can contain treats, to give them a fun way to eat. 

Any time spent with your dog is precious. Hopefully, these ideas have inspired you to get outside with your dog. While you’re outside, use some of these new gadgets, whether picked up from a pet store or sites that sell dog supplies online.
