Would you want your to miss out on Eastertime fun? Of course you wouldn’t. In case you’re stuck for ideas, here are suggestions for how to include your dog in Easter celebrations., here are some dog-friendly ways you can include them in it.
Hold a photo shoot
This is a non weather-dependent activity that you can hold either inside or out. Gather some items that you are going to use. Select a spring backdrop scene – one that won’t be too busy, or create your own backdrop (this option is easier if you are indoors) using a piece of canvas or a table cloth.
Next, grab Easter props, such as eggs, bunnies, bonnets or something that you think captures a sense of rebirth. Some people like to dress their pooches bunny ears, and so on. We’ll leave that to your discretion, but we think that if you do this, your dog should feel comfortable in whatever they are wearing.
Then, take as many pics as your pup can tolerate before he/she is itching to do something else!
For one hell of an egg-citing(!) time, get a load of your dog’s favourite treats and snacks, boil some eggs, and hollow out. Fill the eggs with the treats, and give them to your pet. This is much better than plastic, as the egg itself will not harm your pooch. If you do decide to use plastic eggs, make sure they are large and cannot be ingested. It is also a good idea to not put too much in each egg.
Have Easter hunt
We all know that dogs can use their noses to their advantage. Why not get yours involved in his/her own Easter hunt, so it can sniff out goodies? You can do this in your garden or a park. If the weather is no good.
You could use the already-boiled eggs (above) with things he/she likes that aren’t going to be disagreeable (so, no chocolate!).
Give an Easter basket
It’s another way to make your dog feel included, if you are already giving one to your family members. However, it’s a good idea to be there and supervise this, as bits of basket can be harmful when swallowed. So, keep it all within your eyeshot, and monitor to prevent your canine from chewing on the basket. Also, avoid putting in the grass type stuff, as this can be poisonous to dogs.
Here’s hoping this gives you some ideas about how to include your dog in Easter celebrations. Remember to keep it all safe and pet-friendly!
