“A first date can be very intimidating, especially if you are planning an activity with dogs,” says Amber Soletti, co-founder of OnSpeedDating.com “Not only do you and your dog have to look good but you have to keep the dogs occupied to avoid them from behaving badly. Best to take part in an activity where both you and the dogs keep busy.”
So what to do? Let’s break it down.
TAKE A LONG WALK
It’s easy. It’s free. And it allows you to talk. If it’s morning, bring coffee. If it’s evening tote a split of champagne to crack open when you sit down for a break. And don’t forget the dog bowls.
DOG TRAINING CLASSES
Great for shy dog owners. More doing, less talking. And you’ll both end up with more well behaved pets.
It’s a real date in mini-date form. It’s casual, other pets are there and it’s fun. But if you don’t want everybody in your regular dog run to catch you dating, go to a park you don’t frequent.
And no dog toys that could spur fights between your date’s dog and yours.
CHARITY DOG WALKS
Good causes and great people who also love animals. The routes are usually on the short side but be aware that your date’s dog may be small and will need a break. Offer it.
This is great and new and fresh. Doga combines massage and meditation with gentle stretching for you and your dog. Now all you need is the cool outfit.
Your date’s choice in breed can tell you a lot about them...and you. These are fun, informal an actually informative.
EXPLORE THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Ok, you’ll need to get some background on this one. Does she hike or is she an “indoor girl.” If your date likes to hit the trails, break out the sunscreen, water and snacks (for humans and canines alike) and head out to the mountains.
Whip out your i-phone and take some snapshots. Just start with the dog and work up to the date. It’s fun and is a great ice breaker.
