MISSION, KS--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2014) - (Family Features) Spending a little too much time indoors these days? If you're feeling cooped up, then there's no doubt that your canine companion is feeling it as well.

So what are you waiting for -- now is the perfect time for you and your pup to get outside. Check out some of these fun ways for you and your dog to embrace the great outdoors!

  • Go hiking: Hiking is a great way to turn your routine walk into an adventure! Just be sure to check that dogs are allowed on the trails ahead of time and ALWAYS bring plenty of extra water for your pooch.
  • Take a road trip: What dog doesn't love cruising down the highway with their best friend in the driver's seat? There are plenty of dog-friendly places all over the country so if you're planning on taking a trip, make it a trip your pup can "bark" home about! Be sure to pack some extra snacks for Fido and never leave your dog in a hot car.
  • Go swimming: There's no better way to cool off on a hot day than taking a dip. Most dogs love the water, and swimming is great exercise for both of you. Remember to always keep an eye on your dog when he's in the water.
  • Have a BBQ: Get out there and grill! Gather friends, both human and canine, to get the party started. And, as you're firing up the grill, don't forget a meaty treat like PEDIGREE STACKERZ™ in three mouth-watering flavor combinations for your four-legged friends. Be sure to keep your furry friend away from the hot grill!
