Did you know that Feb. 20 is National Love Your Pet Day? It’s a perfect follow-up to Valentine’s Day – after all, our pets deserve just as much love and pampering as our romantic partners.

Here are a few ways to celebrate this fun day.

Treat Them with a Few New Toys

Let’s face it: dog toys can really take a beating. If your pup’s playthings are looking a little worse for wear, head over to PetSmart on Grand Parkway and get a few upgrades like this adorable fox plushy toy that’s great for a spirited game of tug of war, or a squeaky, spiky football for playing fetch at the park. Or how about a classic Kong treat-dispensing toy that will keep your pup entertained for hours?

Have a Spa Day

Or is it “spaw” day? However you spell it, your pup will probably love a day of grooming and pampering. Book an appointment at Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming for their full-service grooming, which includes a bath and blow dry, pedicure, ear cleaning and trimming, and a cut and brush. They even have a “Tidy Up” package that includes a nail filing and tooth brushing. (And be sure to grab a dog treat from their bakery on your way out!) If money is tight, how about the DIY approach? Give your pup a nail trim, a hearty brushing, and throw in a canine massage (yes, it’s a thing!) for some good bonding time.  

Bake Your Own Dog Treats

What says “I love you” more than a home-cooked treat? Ditch the pre-packaged dog treats and spend an afternoon making them from scratch to show your dog your deep devotion. Check out this collection of super simple recipes curated by Woman’s Day. Each one features fresh ingredients that will keep your dog extra healthy. These are quick and simple recipes, making it a really easy way to love on your pup.

Let Us Treat You & Your Pet

We here at Olympus Waterside Estates love animals as much as you do, and therefore, we wanted to join in the celebration. Let us treat you and your dog – come by the clubhouse at any time during business hours on Feb. 20 and grab a free dog treat on this special day.
