Pets are like additional members of our families, and many dog owners want to spend as much time as possible with their furry friends. Instead of going for the usual walk or playing fetch, why not explore more of the fun options Omaha provides for you and your dog? Here’s a list of fun things to do with dogs in Omaha.

Go for a Swim

A few Omaha pools end the pool season with a Doggie Dip on their last day of business with all proceeds going to benefit the Nebraska Humane Society. It costs just $5 per dog, which also admits two people ($1 for each additional person after two). It’s a perfect opportunity to let your dog cool off, have fun, and socialize with other dogs. Gallagher Pool has a Doggie Dip scheduled for August 13, 2017 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.

Grab Some Drinks in Midtown Crossing

Bring your dog with you to enjoy dinner and drinks on the patios in Midtown Crossing this summer.

The Patio Pup Crawl runs between the hours of 6:00pm and 8:00pm, and each night will be hosted by a different dog-centric organization in Omaha.

Catch a Baseball Game

Take your best friend out to an Omaha Storm Chasers game this summer. Every Wednesday night game is Bark in the Park night, where dogs are welcome to join their owners on the right field grass berm for a great night of baseball.
