We’ve compiled a list of 20 of the greatest activities to keep your dog (and you) occupied this summer. (And the greatest thing is that practically all of these were on sale at the time of writing, despite the fact that we utilized list prices.)

Keep an eye on the weather conditions for your four-legged companion with this app and sensor combination.
