4 Beaches That Are Heaven For Dogs

4 Beaches That Are Heaven For Dogs

The sun is setting way before the time limit, the cold seeps in, soaking up all the brightness, and we all tend to want to hibernate like a bear.

It’s time for a vacation; however, for us pet owners it’s hard for our furry friends to tag along to our desired destinations. As a contrast to a cold winter, many of us might prefer a warm summer, where we get to re-live the feeling of sinking our toes in the sand.

Since many beaches aren’t pet-friendly, how do you enjoy your favorite getaway this winter? Taking that into consideration, I have put together a list of beaches where your pet can run around in the sand while you’re taking a long refreshing walk.

    1. Southport, Australia (The Spit)

    Southport beach, commonly known as The Spit, is a common destination for all dog lovers out there. In the inhabited coast of Australia, it’s a place where both canines and humans bond.

    Since it’s the start of a sweltering summer in Australia this winter, the beach is once again open for all the passionate dog lovers. The waters are calm and exciting for both dogs and humans, so it’s the best of both worlds.

    If you’re looking for an escape with your furry friend then this would a place to be considered.

      2. Huntington Dog Beach, California

      California is a place where the burning sun and the sandy beaches are trademark. From the start of Beverly Hills 90210, to the last episodes of Baywatch, the beach culture never seemed to let us down. Their sunny and “take it easy” lifestyle has always impressed the world, making it one of the most visited destinations in the United States.

      Californians have also portrayed themselves as enthusiastic dog lovers. Huntington Dog Beach is available for all dog lovers looking to travel and enjoy a perfect summer. The low and calm tide of the beach allows your dog to waddle away while you enjoy getting a perfect tan.

      If you prefer active sports, you can visit a number of beaches not too far from the dog beach that offer high tides and an opportunity to ski and surf. If you’re looking to escape this winter, California will definitely meet your expectations.

        3. Chesil Beach, Dorset, UK

        Chesil Beach is located in Dorset, a small county located in the Southwest of England that contains a variety of wonderful beaches. Dorset is rural and quiet, a haven for nature and fresh air.

        Although cold at this time of year, winter is still a great time to visit. The 18-mile stretch of Chesil Beach is perfect for wintry walks with the dog and, when you’re ready to warm up beside a roaring fire, head to one of the local inns, many of which are also pet-friendly.

        A total of 8 miles of the beach is separated from the mainland by a saline lagoon, known as the Fleet, which provides a rich environment for a whole range of wildlife. Chesil Beach is also known to be a fantastic spot for fishing and, in warmer months, an array of exhilarating water sports.

        If you’re planning for a traditional English experience, then this is definitely the go-to location for a wonderful, festive celebration packed with rustic charm; plus, a dog friendly beach is enough to make your furry friend’s season too!

          4. Los Cabos, Mexico

          If you’ve watched the movie Hotel for Dogs, you probably wish that it existed somewhere on this planet. Like Hogwarts, you might think it’s just a fairy tale that never comes true. Well, in Los Cabos, Mexico you might find what you’re looking for.

          A dog paradise, Los Cabos is suited for dogs and owners to travel and enjoy their vacation in style. Most of the resorts are catered for dogs, equipped with dog spas and offering various therapies; you’ll be able to escape your furry friend if you want, and enjoy Mexico on your own.

          Your pet would be safe and pampered by the professionals from the resorts, which in some ways could be described as expensive dog sitting. However, at the end of the day, your pet would be relaxed and treated like a King while you do whatever you want.

          So, if you’re looking for some luxury travel, then take the chance and head to Los Cabos. And you won’t regret packing that large hat.

          So if you’re planning a winter vacation, why not make winter a great getaway for your furry companion as well? With various locations and interesting adventures, it would surely be a time to remember.

          7 Public Speaking Techniques To Help Connect With Your Audience

          7 Public Speaking Techniques To Help Connect With Your Audience

          When giving a presentation or speech, you have to engage your audience effectively in order to truly get your point across. Unlike a written editorial or newsletter, your speech is fleeting; once you’ve said everything you set out to say, you don’t get a second chance to have your voice heard in that specific arena.

          You need to make sure your audience hangs on to every word you say, from your introduction to your wrap-up. You can do so by:

          1. Connecting them with each other

          Picture your typical rock concert. What’s the first thing the singer says to the crowd after jumping out on stage? “Hello (insert city name here)!” Just acknowledging that he’s coherent enough to know where he is is enough for the audience to go wild and get into the show.

          It makes each individual feel as if they’re a part of something bigger. The same goes for any public speaking event. When an audience hears, “You’re all here because you care deeply about wildlife preservation,” it gives them a sense that they’re not just there to listen, but they’re there to connect with the like-minded people all around them.

          2. Connect with their emotions

          Speakers always try to get their audience emotionally involved in whatever topic they’re discussing. There are a variety of ways in which to do this, such as using statistics, stories, pictures or videos that really show the importance of the topic at hand.

          For example, showing pictures of the aftermath of an accident related to drunk driving will certainly send a specific message to an audience of teenagers and young adults. While doing so might be emotionally nerve-racking to the crowd, it may be necessary to get your point across and engage them fully.

          3. Keep going back to the beginning

          Revisit your theme throughout your presentation. Although you should give your audience the credit they deserve and know that they can follow along, linking back to your initial thesis can act as a subconscious reminder of why what you’re currently telling them is important.

          On the other hand, if you simply mention your theme or the point of your speech at the beginning and never mention it again, it gives your audience the impression that it’s not really that important.

          4. Link to your audience’s motivation

          After you’ve acknowledged your audience’s common interests in being present, discuss their motivation for being there. Be specific. Using the previous example, if your audience clearly cares about wildlife preservation, discuss what can be done to help save endangered species’ from extinction.

          Advertising

          Don’t just give them cold, hard facts; use the facts to make a point that they can use to better themselves or the world in some way.

          5. Entertain them

          While not all speeches or presentations are meant to be entertaining in a comedic way, audiences will become thoroughly engaged in anecdotes that relate to the overall theme of the speech. We discussed appealing to emotions, and that’s exactly what a speaker sets out to do when he tells a story from his past or that of a well-known historical figure.

          Speakers usually tell more than one story in order to show that the first one they told isn’t simply an anomaly, and that whatever outcome they’re attempting to prove will consistently reoccur, given certain circumstances.

          6. Appeal to loyalty

          Just like the musician mentioning the town he’s playing in will get the audience ready to rock, speakers need to appeal to their audience’s loyalty to their country, company, product or cause. Show them how important it is that they’re present and listening to your speech by making your words hit home to each individual.

          In doing so, the members of your audience will feel as if you’re speaking directly to them while you’re addressing the entire crowd.

          7. Tell them the benefits of the presentation

          Early on in your presentation, you should tell your audience exactly what they’ll learn, and exactly how they’ll learn it. Don’t expect them to listen if they don’t have clear-cut information to listen for. On the other hand, if they know what to listen for, they’ll be more apt to stay engaged throughout your entire presentation so they don’t miss anything.
