Toss a frisbee or tennis ball for your dog in this spacious, fenced-in park and before you know it, there'll be a whole pack of dogs going after it. It's also a great place to mingle with other dog owners.

Pay a visit (dog in tow) to One Lucky Dog Bakery and pick up some homemade treats for your dog. Some even have ingredients that are useful in soothing more anxiety-prone canines. Pay a visit at 45 Public Square in Medina.

Grab a drink with your dog on any of Cleveland's dog-friendly patios. Sample craft brews in Tremont at Edison's Pub (2373 Professor Ave), or participate in yappy hours every third Tuesday of the month at Tremont Taphouse (2572 Scranton Rd), the proceeds of which help local dog rescues.

If you're looking for somewhere serene, frolic through the flowers with your pooch at Holden Arboretum. These botanical gardens are oftentimes a little more peaceful than a dog park.

Most Cleveland beaches don't allow dogs. If you and your pup are itching for sand and surf, head to Stow and check out Bow Wow Beach, a large dog park complete with a lake for your pups to romp in.

If your dog enjoys curling up with you and watching Netflix, change up the scenery and take him to Elm Road Triple Drive-In for an outdoor movie. Make sure he keeps quiet, though!

If your dog is a bit more energetic, suit him up with a backpack and set out for a day of hiking in Cleveland's Metroparks. Backpacking is a great outlet for working-breed dogs. A word of warning, though: backpacks should only be worn by full-grown dogs, and be sure to pack plenty of water!

If you and your dog both have a habit of frequent snacking, counteract it and kick both of your asses into shape at Thank Dog! Bootcamp. Visit thankdogneo.com for more info.

Head out for a relaxing bike ride, canine companion by your side, through Lakewood's historic neighborhoods. There are plenty of harnesses and bike attachments available to ensure your dog doesn't topple you over in hot pursuit of a squirrel.

Most pools have doggie swim days the last few days of summer, when no one cares if the water gets swamped with fur. Watch your pup paddle around at Hinckley's Ledge Pool on August 24 from 1:00 - 5:00.
