We humans aren’t the only ones who celebrate love this time of year. Today, on February 20, pets get an extra dose of affection, thanks to National Love Your Pet Day.
By Malcolm Mayhew
This special day was dreamed up in 2006 by animal behaviorist and pet lifestyle expert Colleen Paige, who coined the day in honor of the bond between humans and our beloved pets.
Join us in taking a moment to recognize the important role our pets play in our everyday lives.
Here are 6 ways you can show your pet some extra affection today:
❤️ Treats, of course. Lots of treats.
❤️ Dog-owners, take your canine for an extended walk around the neighborhood. Or, if the weather’s nice, take them to the park for an afternoon of wandering and playing.
❤️ Many cats love to have their fur brushed, so take a few minutes to brush their fur and you’ll undoubtedly become the recipient of some very friendly purring.
❤️ Let them play with their favorite toy, or buy them a new toy.
❤️ Indulge them with a nice long bath.
❤️ Take your dog out to a dog-friendly restaurant, or a restaurant with a dog-friendly patio.
As a reminder, we offer a wide range of products, from tasty dental chews to nutritional supplements, to help keep your pet happy and healthy. Click here for more information.
