National Spoil Your Dog Day

Pets are Where the Heart is: 5 Ways to Spoil Your Dog

August 10th is National Spoil Your Dog Day, so we’ve rounded up our five top tips to help you celebrate and spoil the special pup in your life!


1. Take Them to Their Favourite Spot

What easier way to give your dog a fun day out than to take them to their favourite dog park or on an energy-burning hike? After all, exercise is a crucial part of your dog’s overall health and well-being. Dog parks offer your pups a multitude of benefits, from some off-leash freedom and the opportunity to socialize with other dogs, to a safe space in which to exercise and learn good behaviours around other dogs and humans. Check out these options for off-leash dog parks in your neighbourhood.


2. Pick Out Something Special at Your Local Pet Store

If you’re looking for the perfect present for your pet this Spoil Your Dog Day, how about letting them take the reins (or should that be leash?) and bring them to your local pet store to pick out a new toy or treat? Use our store locator to check out some of your nearest independent pet boutiques - you might just find the perfect place to treat your dog to something special this month.

4. Pamper Your Pooch

Pampering isn’t just for people! Doggy massage, grooming and paw-icures are some of the relaxing options available to our pooches, and could make for the perfect gift this Spoil Your Dog Day. Massages have been shown to help with circulation and pain issues, reducing any stress and anxiety that your pup might be experiencing. Treat them to a massage yourself or take them to a Certified Canine Massage Therapist for a professional pampering experience.


5. Spoil Them With a Delicious Treat

We all know there’s nothing like a delicious meal to make you feel special, so why not spoil your pup with something they love to eat? Check out these refreshing pup-sicle recipes, or try your hand at baking some tasty homemade dog treats to indulge the dog in your life. And if you’re short on time (or baking enthusiasm!), why not treat them to a delicious meal of Smack, filled with all the natural deliciousness they deserve?
