Treat your dog on world animal day
Animal lovers and activists across the globe will come together on October 4 to celebrate World Animal Day, with the aim of helping to raise awareness and improve the welfare standards of animals worldwide.
The annual celebration is a special opportunity for everyone who cares about animals to show their support. There are many ways to get involved, from attending one of the hundreds of pre-organised events taking place all over the world to organising an event of your own or simply making a donation online.
For those with their own pet why not start the celebrations at home by treating your furry friends and giving them an extra bit of TLC.
To help you treat your pet, Lintbells, manufacturers of premium pet supplements, have put together five ways you could treat your dog on World Animal Day to show them just how much they mean to you:
The ‘W’ word can cause much excitement in doggy households across the country. As soon as it is uttered tails wag, eyes widen and they’ll already be waiting for you at the door. So why not take the time to treat your pooch to an a special adventure to their favourite outdoor spot. Whether it be a beach where they can get their paws wet and splash about in the sea, your local park or acres of open countryside where they can run freely, it’ll be sure to go down a treat.
From tennis balls to squeaky bones and stuffed animals to tug ropes the toy options for your dog really are endless. They may not always stay in the best condition for long so why not surprise your dog with a brand new toy. This can provide them with hours of fun and entertainment it’s sure to bring a smile to their face.
Say it with food
A small bit of their favourite food can be the perfect way to treat your canine companion and let them know you love them. Treat them to something you know they love and will excited about, and something they don’t have very often, it is a special occasion after all.
Best seat in the house
If you can’t treat your pooch to the best seat in the house on World Animal Day, when can you. Let them curl up on their favourite, usually off limits, chair or sofa just for the day.
Who doesn’t love putting their feet up and having a pampering session? And some dogs are no different. If you know your dog likes it, a trip to the doggy parlour could be the perfect way to give your furry friend a bit of TLC. After a wash, brush and a pedicure they are sure to be feeling, smelling and looking fresh, making for a happy pooch and happy owner.
