Many of us spoil our dogs on a regular day, but this holiday is about stepping things up a notch. The holiday is about making this day all about your DOG! Are you ready- we have a few ideas for you to spoil your dog.
NATIONAL "SPOIL YOUR DOG" DAY ACTIVITIES
HAND OUT THE TREATS!
What dog doesn't love TREATS! Mine had eaten a whole bag when I was not looking. However, too many treats can be a bad thing! But today, break those rules and give more! Or what about a special gift?
The other day we made our doggie (Harley) pupsicles- frozen pumpkin and peanut butter. It was super easy and fun- all you need to do is search on Pinterest for DIY DOGGIE TREATS, and your world of dog treats will open up! Make sure it is a food they have had before, or you will need to contact your veterinarian to make sure it is ok- because not all human food is good for dogs!
GO FOR A SPECIAL WALK
Most of us walk our dogs daily, but today let's take them somewhere special like the beach or your favorite hiking area. So why not TODAY a "spoil your dog" walk! Our Harley loves when we head to the beach, we only go once a week. We also need fresh air, and walking by the beach is good for you too! So don't do the walk around the block today, head somewhere special.
SNUGGLE- LOVE ON YOUR DOG
What dog doesn't love a good belly rub? Spend extra time today, petting, cuddling, scratching, hugging on your doggie. My Harley is a big cuddler; even though he almost weighs 100 lbs, he will try to lay on my lap. I enjoy these moments just as much as he does. He cuddles all the time with that pillow.
Loving on your doggie:
- Put in a good movie and snuggle with your dog on the couch.
- Read a book while they are on your lap or rubbing your feet on the tummy!
- Better yet.. take a nap when it is naptime.
