At Fetch the Sun, we're all about sharing outdoor adventures with our pups! And there are plenty of ways for dogs to get dirty when they're out exploring the world. They might go for a hike and pick up some mud, or play at the dog beach and get covered in sand. They might even just go for a run and end up with grass all over their paws and fur. And, of course, camping is another great way for dogs to get really dirty! Whether they're sleeping in a tent or running around in the woods, there's no doubt that dogs love getting dirty when they're outdoors.

PRO TIP: If your dog is always dirty from adventures, then you're an awesome dog mom or dad!
