10 Ways To Spoil Your Dog On International Love Your Pet Day 2024

LET’S FACE IT, WE LOVE OUR DOGS EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE YEAR, BUT WITH A WHOLE DAY DEVOTED TO THEM JUST AROUND THE CORNER, WE’RE ONLY GOING TO PAMPER THEM EVEN MORE!

This year, International Love Your Pet Day falls on the 20th February 2024, and it’s the perfect time to show our gorgeous pooches just how much they mean to us – whether that’s showering them with extra love and attention or giving them a few additional treats!

If you’re after some inspiration on how to mark the occasion, then look no further, because party and celebration experts Fizzbox have put together their top 10 ideas to help you honour your beloved pets in style!

SPEND QUALITY TIME TOGETHER

If you’re lucky enough to have the day off work on International Love Your Pet Day or you’re looking to take some time off, then how about making a whole day of it? Not only will your dog love having you around, but it’ll also do you some good to take some time away from your job and unwind with your favourite pooch!

ARRANGE A PLAYDATE

Treat your pup to a playdate with their besties and get ready for some serious doggy mayhem! Arrange with your fellow dog parents to meet for a pack walk somewhere or you could even host an event at your home or a pet-friendly venue. Make sure you bring along plenty of toys and treats for the occasion, along with lots of water too so everyone can keep hydrated (dogs and humans alike!). This really is one paw-some way for your furry buddies to socialise, play and have an absolute blast!

SNUGGLES GALORE

Being February, the weather here in the UK is more than likely to be on the chilly side. So what better way to get cosy than on the sofa with your dog and lots of cosy blankets? Pop your favourite movie on and prepare to get snuggly for the next couple of hours!

EXTRA SPECIAL MEAL

Treat your beloved doggo to a meal that’s fit for a king or queen on International Love Your Pet Day! Whether you’re cooking up a pet-safe, nutritious meal at home or spoiling them with a luxury premium brand of dog food, we know that there will be a waggy tail when you serve them up this glorious meal. There’s really nothing more satisfying than watching your pup devour a tasty dinner – a happy pet with a full belly is the definition of love!

DONATE TO AN ANIMAL CHARITY

Why not spread a little love beyond your own pets and donate to an animal charity or rescue centre on this special day? Unfortunately, not all dogs, cats and other animals are as lucky as your pooch and are currently awaiting their very own forever home in a rescue centre. Even if you can only afford to donate a small amount, your contribution can make such a difference to the lives of these animals, and will help towards the cost of food, shelter and medical care. So let’s extend our compassion to all animals, ensuring they receive the care and support they deserve.

NEW ACCESSORIES

Why not gift your pup with a lovely new accessory this celebratory day? We love independent Sussex crafter Handmade by Hayley B, who specialises in the most gorgeous sailor bows, flowers and bow ties. These simply clip onto your pooch’s collar, giving a secure and snug fit. There’s also a great mix of bandanas, snoods and sniffer enrichment balls available if you’re looking for an extra treat, along with handy dog walking accessories to match!

DOG FRIENDLY HOTEL

Need to escape the busy hustle and bustle? Then how about treating yourself and your pup to some time away at a dog friendly hotel? Here, you and your canine companion will be welcomed with open arms! Most of these properties will offer extras like blankets, beds, toys and treats, along with designated areas where dogs can go to the toilet. If you’re after a break where you’ll be surrounded by like-minded dog owners, then a dog friendly hotel is the way to go!

EXTRA LONG WALK

Get yourselves out into that crisp winter air and enjoy an extra long walk that’s filled with adventure! It’s the paw-fect opportunity to try a new route or area and your dog will absolutely love it! There will be all sorts of new smells, sounds and sights and they’ll have a great time as they sniff and run around. Not only does an extended walk provide physical exercise, but it also offers mental stimulation and strengthens the bond between you and your furry friend. In addition, it’s a great way for humans to release some endorphins too! So what are you waiting for? Grab those walking boots and get ready to hit some new routes with your best bud!

BUY THEM A NEW BLANKET

We love watching our pups snooze, so why not make their sleeping experience even better for them with the gift of a soft and cosy blanket? It’s a great gesture of love and comfort and they’ll be sure to feel all warm and snug cuddled up in their new blanket!

TEACH THEM A NEW TRICK

We all know the saying “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”, but we disagree and say that there’s no age limit when it comes to learning. Dogs are highly intelligent animals and while older dogs may take a little longer to learn (and a bit more patience is required from the human’s side), they’re still very much capable of learning a new trick. Positive reinforcement techniques are advised when training dogs and the key is to break the trick down into small, bite size chunks. Training and teaching your dog new tricks is a fantastic way to strengthen the bond between the pair of you and with time and dedication, we know you’ll reach your goal!
