SociaBulls: A Date with Your Dog

I once knew a family who had a tradition of having setting aside one night each week to have a special family dinner. They found as things got hectic, it reminded them to slow down and really enjoy time together as a family. I've realized SociaBulls is like that too; we have set aside a day to have a weekly date with our dogs.
 No matter how busy we get, it's nice to keep our weekly appointment with our pooches and to be able to spend some quality time together.
 With our long walks by the beach, through city parks, and enjoying Chicago together. One of my favorite parts is the variations of families and seeing the pooches and people hanging out together at the water breaks and after the walk.
What other ways do you remind yourself to spend some special quality time with your pooch?

Join our Chicago SociaBulls  Facebook page for more photos and information about group walks. And check out the Hikabulls page where we first learned about the benefits of group walking.  
Please Note: As the weather has warmed up, bikers, runners, dogs, and kids have come out in full force in many of the areas that we walk. While we had previously been introducing new members a few at a time to each walk, we've decided that in order to continue to keep our group safe and make our walks a positive experience for everyone, we are putting new members "on hold" for the summer. You can still submit an application, and it will go on our wait list in the order it is received. Once things quiet down a bit more in the fall, we will resume introducing new members a few at a time to each walk, and will be contacting people on the wait list in a first-come, first-served manner.

We often do road trips or we have "family cuddle time," which basically just means all the pups hop in bed and get lots of love. We retell the stories of how we met them and some of the funny things they've done along the way. Seriously, and we love it!

We went through a (short) period where we trained our dogs for a short time every evening before bed. We need to get back to that!
