Time with our best mates can pass by way too quickly, so let’s create the memories of a lifetime, and tick off as many items as possible from our Ultimate Bucket List for Perth Dogs!
There are a lot of fun things we can do with our pooches, so don’t consider this list finished. We’ll continue working on it as time goes by, and so should you 🙂
Roll in the mud and get really, really dirty
Yeah we know you’ll hate us for that one, but we’re sure your dog will love it, and that’s all that counts, right?
Have a birthday party with all of your dog’s best mates
Don’t forget to take lots of photos and to share them with us! If you’re after some inspiration, have a read here: How to throw your dog a birthday party in Perth
Get a doggo friendly cake for your dog’s birthday
Make some tasty homemade treats
With all the practice you got from baking that birthday cake, you might as well stay in the kitchen and bake your pup some tasty homemade treats 😜.
Make them in bulk, so you always have some at home and save $ compared to store-bought treats.
If you really can’t be bothered baking, rather than buying mass-produced store-bought treats, consider buying treats from local small businesses.
We list many of them on our website to make it super easy to find your next fav neighbourhood treat dealer: Shop Dog Treats from Australian Small Businesses

Stay at a dog-friendly Hotel
We know. Perth is a very remote place to live in and it’s hard to travel outside our state with our pups. Unlike many other countries in the world, we also have a lack of dog-friendly hotels here, BUT WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WAY! We can improvise with dog-friendly Airbnb’s, and we even wrote up a full post on How to have the Perfect Dog-friendly Staycation in Perth!
Take your dog to work with you
At least just once, how great would it be?
Give your dog Doggy Ice Cream
There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than some ice cream; we’re sure your dog will agree, too.
Try a dog sports class, like fly ball or agility
Dog sports can be so much fun for both humans and dogs. Don’t take puppies though as their bones are still developing.
Go paddle-boarding with your dog
Going paddle-boarding with your dog is a lot of fun and such a great bonding activity at the same time.
