Are you ready for summer?

According to a recent survey* from PetSmart, more than 60% of pet parents believe it is important to bring their dog along on outdoor activities over the summer — and you can count my wife and me in that mix. We bring our pups wherever we can, and in the spirit of bringing the canine posse along for the adventure, PetSmart is inspiring dream summer adventures with its Arcadia Trail Summer Bucket List Contest.

Inspired by the new range of products from the outdoor-focused Arcadia Trail collection, PetSmart’s Arcadia Trail Summer Bucket List Contest gives pet parents and their dogs a chance to make their bucket list adventure come true.

To enter, pet parents will share why it’s important for them to head out on an ultimate road trip with their pup. Ultimately, PetSmart will choose 10 pet parents and their dogs to receive a fully customized road trip experience along with 100,000 PetSmart Treats reward points and a full suite of merchandise from the 2023 Arcadia Trail collection.

Want a shot at winning an adventure? Check out and submit your entry by June 7. Good luck!
