PAMPER YOUR POOCH WITH THESE SIX SUGGESTIONS
Pets are one of the most important members of a household. Over 60% of homes in America have at least one pet, and today, pets are considered to be members of the family – not just an animal that lives in the home. Today’s pet parents want to do as much as possible to pamper their dogs, cats, and smaller animals to make sure that they know that they are loved and wanted in the home.
There are some out there that frequently push their pampering efforts to the limit. They spend money on their pets in the same way that they would their children, on treats and fashion accessories like rope collars and even pet clothes! There’s not much evidence out there to say that any of the pampering that we lavish on our pets has any significance on their emotional wellbeing, but we do it anyway because it makes us feel good to spoil them. If you want more ideas on how to pamper your pooch to make them feel secure and happy, check out these six suggestions:
1. Treats. It’s not just about the catnip for cats, or the big, juicy bones for dogs. There are now entire bakeries opening a section up purely for pets to enjoy some gourmet delights! Organically grown items and pet-specific cakes and cookies can be bought to suit the diet of your pet.
2. Daycare. Dogs can get lonely in the home when they’re on their own throughout the day, but you don’t have to worry about that when there are specific doggy daycare services where they can run, play and nap somewhere more fun.
3.Activity Centers. Are you off on vacation that is unfriendly for pets? Treat your dog to a home away from home with a Dog Activity Center booking. Different from the usual kennels, these centers allow dogs to play, exercise, take walks off the leash and even swim!
4. Birthday Parties. Did you know that one in four pet parents in America have admitted to throwing a birthday party for their dog? You can buy birthday cakes and treats that are kind to pet tummies, and celebrate with your pet every year.
5. Grooming. The pet equivalent to heading to the spa, grooming matters a lot to your dog. From going for a swim in a heated pool to receiving a massage and even acupuncture, you can give your pet a lavish day out at the doggy spa.
6. Your Time. The most significant way to pamper your pooch is with your time. Spending time giving them your love and attention can be as much as they need to feel loved, cared for and wanted – and that’s all that pets really want.
Pets are simple creatures, who want to be with you and by your side. If you are making their time with your family full of activities and fun, they’re going to be loyal and love you even more than they already do. Dogs are the most loyal creatures – humans are lucky to have them!
