If you’re reading this blog post, you probably already spoil your dog. Rather than admit to my dogs being spoiled, I prefer to say they are “well-loved.” I mean, makes sense, yeah? No? Okay, well it makes me feel better about the fact that my life entirely revolves around my fur kids. But the fact of the matter is, today is Spoil Your Dog Day! Here are a handful of super simple ways that you can spoil your dog on this special day.
Spoil Your Dog
Bake a Special Treat
We all know I’m allll about the homemade dog treat recipes. Today is the perfect day to bust out those baking ingredients! Whether your dog prefers something soft, frozen or crunchy, I have you covered. Check out all of the delicious DIY recipes that I have for ya.
Go On An Adventure
Spoil your dog by taking them on a new adventure! This could be new walking route, an undiscovered park, a hike or a dog friendly store or restaurant! One of my favorite things to do with my kids is take them to Dairy Queen for a free pup cup! You can’t beat a car ride for ice cream.
Buy a New Toy
Wynston has about a billion toys. Do I care? Absolutely not. Every six months or so I do go through them and donate what he doesn’t play with. Does this stop me from buying him new toys? Of course not! That’s the dog mom life, right? For Spoil Your Dog Day, take your dog to PetSmart and buy them a new toy! If your dog doesn’t do well in public, then head there yourself and pick out a toy that they’d enjoy. It’s always a great day to spoil your pup with a new toy.
Spend Extra Time With Your Dog
Put down your phone (I know, it’s hard not to take pictures) and spend some extra time with your dog today. Play fetch, hide and seek or watch them enjoy a treat puzzle. Nothing is more special to your dog than quality bonding time. They will know if you are giving them undivided attention.
Add Goodies to Their Meal
Jazz up your doggy’s meal with some fresh dog-friendly fruits and veggies. Great options are kale, carrots, peas, apples or blueberries. Remember that although I’m an expert dog mom, I’m not a veterinarian. Be sure to consult your vet with specific diet questions or concerns.
