Into the Wild

This Summer, Grab Your Dogs and Get Back to Nature!

By: Eleanor Munk

Last Updated:


Dogs know where it's at. Whenever you grab a leash, they get so excited! Sometimes we wonder why — it is just a walk, after all. But dogs love the outdoors, and love to smell the balmy summer air mingled with scents of pine trees, sun-baked sidewalks, and salt-kissed breezes! Take a note from your dog's book and get back to nature this summer, whether it be towards water, mountains, or woods!

For some great summer reading and more photos of dogs enjoying the summer, check out Modern Dog Magazine's Summer 2017 issue, available soon on stands and online! We also include some great suggestions for awesome summer gear for your pup.
