I would have to say packing a lunch and heading off for a nice long hike ending up at a beach. Tossing sticks into the water and watching them romp around in the sand, having a nice lunch and enjoying the sunshine. Hiking back and heading home for a nice nap, ending the day after dinner with a fun game of fetch and flirt pole in the backyard before crashing on the couch and enjoying a snuggle before bed.

Sounds like heaven to me

IPO in the morning, a forest hike in the afternoon, playing in the yard with the dogs during the evening while cooking on the grill. That was my Tuesday this week! I even gave the dogs some pieces of raw steak while DH cooked ours.

Definitely a beach day! Nikon loves water - wading, swimming, fetching, attacking waves. He also loves digging in sand or snow, but I much prefer sand.

First, we would stop by my work for a nice spa day. I'd grind her nails before I left the house, and we'd drive up to the store for a nice, relaxing bath, blow out and brushing. And everyone working would be sure to shower Discoe with all the pets and treats she can handle.
Next, we would go to a park for a walk and a photo session. Maybe call up her breeder and see if she's busy, and get some photos with her siblings or dad and some free time to run around and play.
Finish things out with some obedience close to home and playing some tug and ball, or maybe a couple-miles bike ride.
Finally, when we get home, I'll put some treats in her puzzle toys and let her just wind down with those.

We had a day similar to this last week. It was actually broken up into a couple of days. I took her in for a bath one day, and a few days later, we had a photo session for her birthday with some pictures with her parents and a run with her siblings. I think we'll have another one next week, just the two of us, especially if the weather gets better.

When I am working, we have pretty awesome days! Wake up, eat, go to the bush and hike all day (and lots of sticks involved), go back to camp, eat and snuggle in the tent!

Good rainy days, when you get the exercise in first thing in the morning and watch movies all day and have a cozy day crocheting before another evening rip through the woods is pretty nice too!

I would take them to the national park to hike the mountain. My pup hadn't been yet but the older dog loves it. It's always a good time

Taking him to the beach! He absolutely loves the water and we live very close to the ocean so we go several times a week. So I guess the perfect day with him is almost everyday!!

I'd have to say every/any day,but
for my girl, she loves the farm. Looking forward to getting back down there. Depending on the weather, we'll be going in a few weeks for pruning. Get up in the morning and heading down to the blackberry field. I make her wait while I go down the hill and cross the bridge, then call her down. Lol she will tear down the hill and leap off the bridge like a dog in commercial. She knows we will have our play time. I'll throw a toy/ball around for her to burn off some energy, then it's work time. Since it's fenced in she runs free, which she loves to do! She has her "crazy time" where she can run full tilt. Once I start working, she's there to "help" pulling the brambles that I've trimmed. Load them into the cart, take them to the burn pile. Row after row, up and down, back and forth, she is right there. I love my work, but it can be so monotonous, she makes it fun. Watching her try to run with a 6 foot long bramble branch keeps it fun. After a long day, heading back up to the cabin for dinner, and if it's not to cold, sitting on the front porch. If we are lucky the coyotes will serenade us, although she is not a big fan of them
