Pet Appreciation Week!

June 4th-10th is Pet Appreciation Week!

We know you love your pets just as much as we do! Here are a few ideas on how to show your pets extra love this week:

  • Extend your pet's normal play and exercise time

The recommended amount of daily exercise for most dogs is 30 minutes to 2 hours, although certain dogs need more. Just as playtime for puppies teaches them about relationships and socialization, having a bit of fun with your dog shows them that you care. Playing gives your dog one-on-one undivided attention, which helps them feel like a special part of your life.

  • Take your dog on a picnic in the park

Choose a shady spot where dogs are welcome, and pack plenty of water and dog-friendly foods like unseasoned chicken, watermelon, cucumbers, and green beans.

  • Give your pet a spa treatment

Whether you send them to a groomer or do it yourself, your pet is sure to love an extra wash, brush, or nail trim! Learn here how to trim your dog's nails at home.

There's no rule about how often you can dole them out, as long as you limit treats to 10% of their daily calories. Use coupon code TREAT for 5% off all treats on our website!

  • Show your pet extra care by making a vet check-up appointment

After a cat or dog has reached one year of age, they should generally visit the animal hospital or veterinary clinic once a year. Make sure your pet is up to date on all vaccines, and regularly treated for fleas, ticks, and heartworms.

  • Buy your pet a new toy

Toys are more than just a bit of fun for your dog. They stop them from getting bored and causing trouble around your home, such as scratching at furniture or digging up the garden. Having suitable objects for your dog to chew and play with helps keep them stimulated, entertained, happy and healthy. When toys weaken, start to wear, buckle and then break, they become a choking hazard. Giving your dog new toys to play with from time to time will let him divide his attention, prolonging the life of his tougher toys and replacing the ones that have met their end.
