This September, we’re getting set for fall and we’ll show you how! As pawfect as California weather can be, it won’t “feel” like we’re living in an autumn atmosphere for a couple more months, but there are a few things you can do with your pup to set the seasonal mood.
Explore A New Coffee Shop
Caffeine is a treat any time of year, but switching up your regular coffee order to a seasonal item (like a Pumpkin Spice Latte!) can set the tone ahead of the equinox. Go the extra mile by trying a coffee shop known for having a seasonal vibe—Timeless Coffee has our vote for our Bay Area community, and you can find them in Berkeley and Oakland (check out our Pet-Friendly Summer Stops blog for what to pick up before visiting a coffee shop with your pup)!
Make A Pumpkin Spice Puppuccino
Let your pup join the PSL fun with a Pumpkin Spice Puppuccino of their own! We used The Bear And The Rat’s Pumpkin & Cinnamon Frozen Yogurt for Dogs to make a treat our pups would love. Keep an eye out for our recipe in our Instagram Reels later this month, plus pick up The Bear and the Rat for your pup next time you’re at your local Spot!
Get Set For Fall, But Make It Fashion
One of the best parts of fall? Sweater weather, paws down, and we’ve got sweaters for your pup to match your wardrobe re-fur-esh! You'll notice dog sweaters popping into your local Spot as we get closer to fall!
More Fall Finds At Your Local Spot
Looking to try something new with your pet's foods or spruce up your home with new decor? We've got an array of fall-themed food and treats (like Grandma Lucy’s Pumpkin Organic Oven Baked Dog Treats) at your local Spot and online! Plus, seasonal toys by Pet P.L.A.Y. and fall-scented candles from Pet House by One Fur All or Petals Poured Candles are starting to trickle into our stores!
Hit The Road For A Weekend
Sometimes, there’s too many aspects of summer around to overlook, so you need a new setting. Luckily, hikes and camping trips or even driving out to enjoy a new view for a few hours in the right location can turn your perspective around. Visit a woodsy area like Franklin Canyon Park if you’re only planning to be out for the day or plan a trip to Big Sur for a cooler weekend getaway with your pup.
These are just a few of our favorite ways to get in the seasonal spirit, but everyone has their own tips and tricks to prep for a new time of year. How do you and your pet get ready for the fall season?
