Doggie Days of Summer with Muskoka Bear Wear

Doggie Days of Summer with Muskoka Bear Wear

While no one wants to admit it, we’re coming into the final few weeks of summer and that means making sure to appreciate as many moments as we can – especially those with our furry best friends. To help out, we’ve compiled a fun, simple bucket list of four things you and your dog can enjoy together before we inevitably fall into fall.

#1 – Take In A Sunset

Sunsets happen each and every single day – albeit sometimes behind a few clouds – but we think everyone could benefit from stopping and enjoying even one special sunset before summer’s end.

#2 – Time On The Dock

If you’re going to be near water between now and the end of summer, we’re prescribing some time on the dock. Is there anything more calming than listening to the water lap up against the side of the dock, the birds, the breeze. Slow things down a bit so you and your puppers can enjoy some time on the dock.

#3 – Matching Outfit Day

• BONUS • For added fun, try a Muskoka Bear Wear Doggie Bandana when coordinating your outfit. They are currently available in a wide variety of colours and sizes for just about any dog! And, that’s not even the best part, with each Doggie Bandana sold, we donate $5 to our local Muskoka OSPCA – so you can feel good knowing you’re supporting local animals while your dog is looking awesome! Now that’s PAWsome!

#4 – Go For A Hike

Next to “Want a treat?”, “Wanna go for a walk?” has to be every dog’s favourite question in the world. With new smells, new sights and getting in some exercise, every walk is an adventure for your dog. Try finding someplace new to explore together, or stopping somewhere just to relax and take it in. We’re confident it won’t just be your dog enjoying the time out!

We think the above ideas make an achievable bucket list, what do you think? Be sure to tag @muskokabearwear on the adventures that you take us and your dogs on!

Oh, and that reminds us… we’re extending our Canada’s Cutest Pet Contest! Send us a pic of your Pet wearing our Ontario Made custom Doggie Bandana for a chance to win a $25 Online MBW Gift Card!

Post your photos with the name of your Pet anytime on Facebook or Instagram & don’t forget to use the hashtag #muskokabearwear or send them by DM.

The winners will be selected daily from August 14th – 20th 2020 with the final winner announced Friday morning August 21st, 2020 and all will be included in our next social media campaign! Good Luck everyone!

To help inspire you – and just because we love dogs so much – here are some adorable dog pictures that we’ve been tagged in!

Muskoka Dogs, Part of our Muskoka Family!

Dogs may not be our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

There’s no wonder why they’re called “man’s best friend”… they love to snuggle us when we’re feeling down, they’re happy to finish whatever is left on our plate, they eagerly await our return home from just about anywhere and boy oh boy do they just love to be part of any adventure we bring them on. From trips to the cottage, hikes in the wilderness, lazy days on the dock, kayak & canoe trips, or sitting around the campfire and watching the stars – they just want to be part of the fun with you.

Pretty much any Muskoka tradition you can think of, your furry, four-legged best friend is happy to be part of it. That is what inspired us to make our Muskoka Bear Wear Doggie Bandanas – available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Proudly Canadian-made, it lets you and your dog show off your love for all things comfy. But more than that, with the sale of every bandana, we donate $5 to the Ontario SPCA & Humane Society and Muskoka Animal Centre. So, whether your best friend is a Miniature Poodle or a Mastiff, we have a bandana just for them and that way you can feel good knowing you’re doing good, while looking good.

Now let us ooouuu and aaahhh together while we look back at some of our favourite Bear Wear doggie photos! If you have a doggie photo that you would like to share with us, be sure to send them in or post them to one of our social channels.
