When you love your pet, go beyond the daily belly rubs and baby talk, and show your love and affection for your pet in a different way. Spend extra time with your furry friend. Here are just a few ways to spoil your pet this week.
1. Schedule Playdates
Is your puppy full of excess energy? Schedule playdates with neighbor dogs and puppies. These social interactions with other canines are a great way for your pet to exert energy and get a good night's rest.
2. Buy a Matching Leash and Collar Set
My dogs adore their collars. They get excited when they slip them on and almost pout when the collars come off. Why not spoil your dog or cat with a flashy collar with rhinestones or polka dots?
3. Take a Trip to the Pet Store
Everyone gets cabin fever--even Fido. Make it a point to take your pet to the store when it's time to get a refill on pet food or toys. Many big box pet retailers welcome (and spoil!) their furry guests.
4. Start a New Activity
Pets love to be active. Spoil your pet with a new activity. Consider enrolling your dog in agility classes or signing up your cat up for a local pet show.
5. Use Special Food Bowls
Dinnertime is usually the favorite part of the day for any pet. Spoil your pet with novelty food and water dishes. Whether the dishes are painted a bright color or have a fun pattern, your pet will know they are his property.
6. Enroll Your Pet in Doggy Day Care
What dog would refuse a day of running outside, roaming with other dogs, and sniffing a new yard? Sign up your pet for doggy day care to give him a change of pace and a great workout. Choose a facility that offers room for pets to run outdoors and supervised playtime with the other day care guests.
7. Monogrammed Pet Bed
Finally, spoil your pet with a customized bed. Your pet will love his unique personal space, be it an elevated doggy bed or a plush kitty condo. Just make sure to have the bed monogrammed with the pet's name for a personal touch.
