Five Fun Ways to Celebrate Spoil Your Dog Day

Aug 10, 2017 | Dog, Holidays, Uncategorized

Everyone needs a little reminder of how special they are once in a while.

National Spoil Your Dog Day gives us an opportunity to let our pups know just how much they mean to us!

Here are five fun ways to celebrate and spoil your pups (without spoiling them too much).

1/ PLAYTIME! Take a few minutes and take your pup outside to play, or grab their favorite toy and just play together. You’ll have important bonding time, plus pups of all ages love the extra attention and the chance to play.

2/ GO FOR A WALK! Get outside and take a walk around the neighborhood or the local park. You’ll love the fresh air, and pups will find all the new sights and smells interesting and exciting.

3/ BELLY RUBS! Get right down on the floor and really connect with your dog through a good, long belly rub. Most dogs love to have their belly rubbed – need proof? Watch their expressions!

4/ GO FOR A RIDE IN THE CAR! Make rides in the car a treat for your pup. Leave the window down a bit so they can sniff the air and check out the sights, sounds and smells. Bonus: take them to Starbucks for a Puppacino or a local store to shop for treats or toys.

5/ HEALTHY TREATS. The ultimate for every pet has to be treats. Choose healthy low calorie dog biscuits, baby carrots, apples or green beans. Many dogs also love fruits like blueberries, strawberries, frozen banana, and watermelon. As always, moderation is key.
