Our furry friends are often referred to as “human’s best friend,” and it is easy to understand why. Pets are loyal, caring, and offer unconditional love. What more could you ask for in a best friend?
June 8th is Best Friends Day — a day to show your special someone that you call a best friend how much you appreciate them and how important they are to you.
If your dog could talk, they would probably let you know all the time how much you mean to them, so do a little something special for your furry friend to let them know you appreciate them just as much.
Here are some fun activities for you and your furry friend can do to commemorate the day and spend some quality time together:
Go For a Walk
While this might be a simple activity in your daily routine, you can easily make it even more fun for the both of you!
Grab your pup and go soak up your city like tourists (but with a better sense of direction). Plan your route and possibly take breaks at some of the local pet-friendly businesses.
Long walks not for you and your dog? Go for a nice drive instead! Crack the window and let the breeze blow through their fur (just be sure they are safe, of course).
Visit a Dog Park or Beach
Take your bestie to go play with their other besties at the dog park or dog-friendly beach. They get to run, play, and meet other pups while you soak up some sun.
With summer upon us, what better way to spend Best Friends Day than digging your toes — and paws — into the sand and playing in the water? Just remember to keep your dog nice and cool, and make sure they have plenty of water and shade.
Love to shop and want to bring your best fur friend along? Shopping with your dog doesn’t have to mean you can only go to pet stores and boutiques. More and more stores are becoming pet-friendly, but be sure to check beforehand!
You can even treat your bestie to a Puppuccino along the way!
Play With a New Toy
After your pup picked out a new toy while you were out shopping, spend the rest of the afternoon playing!
Playtime is not only fun, but it is both mentally and physically beneficial for your pet. If they are tuckered out after a good play session, you know they were not only having fun, but were mentally stimulated as well.
Whether it is a ball, frisbee, or even a puppy puzzle, your dog will be ecstatic to play with their new favorite toy with you.
Do Some Training
A dog is never too old to learn new tricks. Your older dog (or even you) could maybe use a refresher or your new puppy is working on learning some tricks. You’re not only spending quality time with your best friend, but also making sure the time spent is beneficial for you both.
This is an activity that could be done either indoor or outdoor, so no need to worry about the weather with this one.
Make Homemade Dog Treats
If you’d rather spend some time inside, we have the perfect activity for you and your pup.
Just like many humans, the way to your furry friend’s heart is (probably) through their stomach. Spoil your furry friend and spend Best Friends Day baking some homemade treats. There are plenty of recipes for homemade dog treats you can find online. Be sure to use only recipes that use ingredients that are safe for your dog to eat.
