It’s finally spring, and your pup is as excited as you are to get back to long walks and playing fetch at the park. Why not treat your furry friend to something extra-special this spring in addition to the usual routine? Here are four fun ways to pamper your pet for a little extra love.
Make Them a Special Meal
Your dog probably goes wild for food of any kind – especially the forbidden kind. Even if your pup is content with their usual kibble, they’ll be sure to appreciate a home-cooked meal. Mix some shredded protein like chicken or turkey with veggies like carrots or green beans and serve it up to your pooch. Just be sure to avoid foods like chocolate, garlic, grapes, and onions, which can make your dog sick.
Take Them on a Hike
A dog-friendly hiking trail is a great activity for both you and your furry friend. Your dog will love the sights, sounds, and smells, and it’s a good opportunity for you to exercise and get some fresh air. Some hiking trails even have drinking fountains for dogs. Just make sure to clean up after your pooch and keep them leashed.
Head to the Dog Park
A big, open field, plenty of toys, and new friends – what else could a dog want? Search your area for a dog park and prepare for a day of fun. Most dog parks are free, and some feature communal toys, treats, and even pools and hoses. If your dog is comfortable around other dogs, they’ll love meeting all the new pups and people.
Take Them to the Doggie Spa
In addition to regular trimming services, some dog groomers offer special treatments for their customers, like luxurious baths, teeth cleanings, and nail trimmings. You could also perform some of these services at home, but if you really want to indulge your pet, take them to a professional to ensure they get the best care possible.
