With April 11 just around the corner, it is time for us who own dogs or other special pets to show them in a unique way, how much we appreciate and love them. From taking a long walk in the park to treating him or her with delectable canine treats, there are numerous ways to celebrate the National Pet Day with your dog.
1. Get Your Dog a Gift
Visit a pet shop and get your pet that item you know he or she will love. It can be a fancy dog tag, a cozy blanket, or a plush bed.
2. Treat Yourself and your Dog with Some Ice Cream
It is not often that your dog gets some sweet vanilla ice cream. But since this is a special day that only comes once a year, a little frozen ice cream would make him or her feel appreciated.
3. Take your Dog to a "Yappy Hour"
Most dog bakeries commemorate dogs and their owners with an occasional "yappy hour". Similar to a human happy hour, a yappy hour is a social hour that involves treats of some kind.
4. Visit the Dog Park
Although this may not be anything new to your dog, a little extra time at the park may help him or her meet new friends and playmates.
5. Brush Your Pet
Your dog may be shedding a lot of fur at this time of the year. Brushing off his fur will help eliminate the dead far and make him feel lighter. You might also consider bathing him/her.
6. Have a Photo Shoot
Use your camera to capture some wonderful moments of your pet playing. You can post the pictures on your social media page.
7. Throw a Ball
Spend some time playing with your dog. Let him get active.
Give your dog a massage along the joints. It will help him relax and even help with arthritis problems and muscle relaxation.
9. Teach Him New Tricks
If he knows the basics like sit, stay, and come. Teach him how to dance and how to roll over. It may take time, though.
10. Some Extra Love
You know best what your dog loves. Show him you care and love him.
Our pets are an important part of our lives and every little moment we share with them remains in our memories forever. Make them feel loved every day.
