Here are 6 ways to spice up your daily dog walks because we all fall into a funk. This is especially true when it comes to walking our doggos. And, because let us face it, the same routine every day gets very dull.
Walking your fur child every day is vital to their overall wellbeing. So it is super important to add variety to what could become a mundane task. At Valgray, we have got you and your pooch covered! Here are our top recommendations for fabulous and fun daily dog walks:
Try switching things up and allow your pup to be your navigator on your walk instead of taking the same old route. This is a really great way to get to know your fur baby because you can observe what your darling doggie finds interesting, where they would like to explore, and how they react to new things.
Walks aren't just good exercise; they are also a really great way to keep your doggie mentally stimulated. Let them sniff things out with a few sniff breaks throughout your walks so they can suss out an area. Find out more about doggo sniff breaks from local dog mom and her sassy Spaniels on Max & Willow.
Join community and charity events, like the annual SA Guide Dog Walkathons, to make your walks purposeful and meaningful. Plus, you can raise funds
for a worthy cause.
We recommend looking for local events on Facebook and Instagram as these platforms are fantastic resources to find charitable events. Which, brings us to our next suggestion...
Use your social media to turn your dog walks into a catch up with friends and family. Invite your besties (and even your mom) along for a walk with your pup. Some extra company will probably get your pup's tail wagging because more friends are always very exciting. If your doggo is social, perhaps arrange a playdate with other pet parents and fur kids.
Did you know Starbucks serves Puppachinos? Loads of local coffee shops are following in their footsteps. Why not take a walk to your local dog-friendly coffee spot and grab something with your pup.

We try our best to cater to every breed, but some doggos might need a little extra at-home customisation to achieve the perfect fit. Our PVC-coated nylon straps are soft, making adjustments at home very easy. Use a standard leather punching tool to add additional holes, or use a utility knife to trim the length of your collar.
