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.

          How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

          How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

          If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

          Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

          So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

          Advertising

          1. Listen

          Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

          2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

          Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

          “Why do you want to do that?”

          Advertising

          “What makes you so excited about it?”

          “How long has that been your dream?”

          You need this information the help you with the following steps.

          3. Encourage

          This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

          4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

          After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

          5. Dream

          This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

          6. Ask How You Can Help

          Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

          7. Follow Up

          Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

          Final Thoughts

          By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

          Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
