2. Explore Nature on Four Paws
For dogs, a farm is a large adventure playground. Set in idyllic locations, nestled between forests and meadows, streams and mountains, lakes and bushes, the farms have one crucial advantage: you are in the middle of the beautiful countryside.
Your dog is free to romp and race around. The rural setting far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life is an absolute bliss for the young and young at heart, for the two-legged and the four-legged friends.
3. Freedom for Your Dog - Relaxation for You
On the farm, there’s a lot to discover for your four-pawed pal: sniffing in the new territory, making friends with Max, the dog, and Micki, the cat, or racing to catch the favourite ball. While the kids play in the sand pit and your dog enjoys his freedom, you can lounge in the hammock and let your soul come to rest.
The daily greetings: spectacular mountain ranges, rushing streams and lush green meadows. The pleasant mountain breeze wafts towards you. Now it’s time to lean back and unwind.
Activities for Dogs and Their Masters
Leave Your Footprints on a Good Hike
Early in the morning, your dog is waiting for you wagging its tail. He’s so excited. He can’t wait to get going. Racing up hill and down dale. Sniffing fresh air. Taking a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear mountain stream. Followed by a delicious picnic. That’s great fun! What a welcome change. Your dog will love it!
In summer and winter alike. At the foot of the mountains, around the lake or up to the summit: hiking is a delight to the senses. With your four-pawed friend keeping you company, you will enjoy it even more! This way, not only your dog will feel as fit as a fiddle ...
Just ask the farmer for dog-friendly hiking trails.
A Trip to the Lake
Especially on a hot summer’s day, a trip to the lake is a nice change of scenery. Take a moment to sit down next to the water, watch your dog explore the surroundings and let your eyes wander ... the planet and its natural beauty is marvellous.
At the lakeside, the four-legged pals can romp to their heart’s content. And they’re in good company! One moment, he’s shaking off the water on the fur and off he goes, speeding around with a happy bark.
By the way ... balls and water toys guarantee some excitement along with the refreshing dip in the water!
