With the nights getting longer and the days getting darker, it always takes that extra little bit of caffeinated encouragement to wake up on a cold winter’s morning. However, there’s no reason why you can’t turn that solo coffee trip into a date with your favourite doggo. With so many dog-friendly cafés in Perth opening their doors to our four-legged friends, you’ll never have to venture far to find your nearest puppicino. If you’re struggling for choice, check out a list of our favourite dog-friendly cafés for inspiration.

Go shopping at your local farmer’s market

If you’re looking for something a little different from your average weekend stroll this winter, why not take your pooch to check out one of Perth’s local dog-friendly farmer’s markets? From Vic Park to Jindalee, you’ll find plenty of markets with stalls dedicated to doggos, with everything from local grooming services to organic dog treats and locally-made accessories. Just make sure your pooch wraps up warm in preparation!

Take your pooch to their favourite park

With the beach out of bounds for the winter months (or maybe not if you’re feeling adventurous), treating your pooch with a trip to their favourite park can be a great alternative for the cooler seasons. Luckily for our fur-friends in WA, there are plenty of options out there for Perth’s pooches, ranging from your standard exercise park to your full-blown doggie obstacle course. You can check out some of our top recommendations in our article on Perth’s best dog-friendly parks

Whilst we all know the importance of keeping our pups primped to perfection in the summer months, our furry friends have a new host of pampering needs when it comes to winter. So if you don’t fancy braving the cold, what about treating them to a dog’s day-in (complete with a TLC session). Follow up with a dog-themed movie night and a  pupcake baking session, and we may well have made the perfect stay-at-home date! 

Refresh your pooch’s winter wardrobe

There’s nothing like a new season to provide a good excuse for a fresh bout of retail therapy, but us humans aren’t the only ones who are in need of a new winter wardrobe! With the colder weather bringing with it a new set of elements for our furry friends, ensuring your pooch is rugged up and ready for the cooler conditions should be an essential step on your seasonal activities list. But don’t fret - we’ve already compiled a list of the winter dog accessories you won’t want to go without!
