April 11th is National Pet Day – What You Need to Know

Fun National Pet Day Ideas

Colleen Paige, animal welfare advocate and pet and family lifestyle expert, founded National Pet Day in 2006 to celebrate the joy pets can bring to us. Here are a few ideas we want to offer our readers to help them plan on this special day:

  1. Share a day with your furry friend at the dog park and make some new friends. Spending extra time socializing your pup will make you feel like a proud pet parent, and your furry pal will enjoy making new playmates.
  2. Indulge in a special treat of sweet vanilla ice cream for your furry companion. While you don’t have to share the same cone, treat your pup to a little frozen delight at a drive-through. After all, National Pet Day only comes around once a year.
  3. Give your pet a refreshing bath, even though they may not like it. The feeling of soft, clean fur after a good shake is well worth it. Plus, it will make your next idea even better.
  4. Take some adorable photos of your pet after their bath. Capture all the cuteness of your furry companion with a photo shoot after their bath. You’ll cherish these memories for years to come.
  5. Spoil your furry friend guilt-free with a special treat they’ll love. Get that product you’ve been eyeing that you know your pet will enjoy. National Pet Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate and indulge.
  6. Take a bonding nap with your furry companion. Whether you’re soaking up the sun outside or snuggled up inside, enjoy a relaxing nap together. National Pet Day is the perfect excuse to unwind and bond with your furry friend.
  7. Enjoy a meal together on a dog-friendly restaurant patio. With patio season upon us, why not treat your furry friend to a dinner out on the town? Share a meal you both will love and make it a memorable experience.
  8. Watch a pet-themed movie together. Revisit your old favorite pet movies!
  9. Get some exercise and play with your pup by throwing a ball. After being cooped up all winter, your dog will appreciate the chance to run and play outside.
  10. Show your furry companion some extra love in your own special way. Whether it’s a longer belly rub, extra playtime, or simply more hugs, National Pet Day is all about celebrating your bond with your furry friend.
