If you love the beach, your pup probably will too! Oahu has many beach parks that are pet-friendly, boasting lots of sand and calm waters for you and your puppy to splash around in. Your dog is sure to love running around in the sunlight, digging holes in the sand, and playing in the water! A few dog-friendly beaches are Kahala Beach, Kailua Beach Park, and Barber’s Point Beach Park. Just remember to bring your leash, in case you need it.

Go to a dog park

If the hustle and bustle of the people down on the Waikiki strip is your favorite view, you should take your doggy to the dog park. Just like you need some time with your besties every once in a while, your puppy needs to spend some time with other dogs. A great way to do this is by bringing them to a dog park, and luckily Oahu has a few to offer. Diamond Head Bark Park, Ala Wai Dog park, and Hawaii Kai Dog Park are all places where your dog can get all of the energy out of their system with other pups.
