What are the best outdoor activities to do with a dog?
That all mostly depends on the dog and its breed. There are loads of things to do outdoors with a dog. 1; Walking it. 2;Playing games with it eg: Fetch. Tuggy. Chase. 3: Tracking . 4: Searching. 5: Agility 6: Swimming. 7: Cart pulling; 8: Sledging. 9; Jogging 10: Dock jumping 11; Herding 12:Racing 13: Train for a dog sport and/ or obedience. 14; Hunting for rabbits etc. As I said, some outdoor activities depend on the breed of the dog and what it is happy doing and whats it is capable of doing. Most dogs enjoy a good walk "off lead" in the woods and fields over any other activity, where they can just be dogs, and do what dogs love to do.

Depends on the dog and the time of year. If your dog WILL NOT FETCH, then retrieving a ball or canvas dummy would be a bad answer...for you. But if you dog will retrieve, land and water retrieves (the latter esp. in hot summer) are good forms of exercise, as is a game of frisbee. If you have heavy snow where you are = skijoring is a good option. If you do not have snow (just colder weather ) outdoor agility training, herding classes, lure coursing or tracking are options.
