Your pet may not like getting a bath, but we guarantee he won’t mind being showered - with a little extra love, that is. You love your pet every day, of course, but February 20 is a day where you can make him feel extra special. It's Love Your Pet Day, and petcentric has some tips to make your dog's or cat's day.
Wake up your pet with an extra good scratch. Going above and beyond can start with going up and to the left on your pet's belly. Or, if you're a bit more adventurous, you could read up on Tellington TTouch, a form of massage that can relax and awaken your pet's mind, create focus, and enhance his willingness and ability to learn.
This is the perfect day to mix up the everyday routine and treat your pet to a special breakfast. If he's used to eating kibble, try mixing in a little wet food. With Fancy Feast® Elegant Medleys®, your cat can enjoy the tastes and smells of restaurant-inspired gourmet wet cat food. For dogs, Beneful® Prepared Meals™ come in delicious flavors like Roasted Chicken, Beef Stew and Roasted Turkey Medley. Sounds like a great way to start the day!
Take a trip to the groomer so that your pet can strut his stuff for the rest of the day. A bandana, bow or other accessory would be a nice touch. Search for a groomer near you on Petcentric Places. If your pet doesn't enjoy going to the groomer, make up for this most unpleasant surprise by getting him a brand new toy. If you don't want to spend the day after Love Your Pet Day picking up clumps of stuffing, we've found some nearly indestructible toys that are eco-friendly.
Time to break out the leash and go on a nice, long walk. You can even let your indoor cat experience the great outdoors by following these petcentric tips for walking your cat. Round out the physical exercise with some mental stimulation by teaching your pet a new trick. We'll let you in on a little secret... dogs aren't the only ones who can learn to play fetch. If you think your dog already knows it all, the adage "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" is more of a self-fulfilling prophecy than a truth. A dog of any age has the ability to learn something new, especially if it means impressing his best friend.
Let your pet tell family and friends how much fun he's having on his big day by sending a DOGGIE-MAIL or KITTIE-MAIL. Then cuddle up together and watch a classic pet movie. Here's one that we gave two opposable thumbs up.
Now it's time for your pet to relive all the fun and excitement of Love Your Pet Day in his dreams.
