Did you know that a national holiday is quickly approaching? Make sure to allocate some time to celebrate the special bond between you and your dog (or another dog mom you know) this Dog Mom’s Day. Mark your calendar: it's being celebrated next Saturday, May 8!
Being a dog mom is the absolute best job, but also a lot of hard work. You deserve some recognition for taking such incredible care of your fur-baby. Dog Mom's Day is a chance to take advantage of recognizing YOU as an incredible dog mom and all that you do to keep your pup happy, healthy, safe and loved each and everyday!
1. TAKE A WALK (OR A HIKE!)
Your dog will love the fresh air, exercise and time spent with you! Make sure to pick somewhere (a trail or sidewalk nearby) that works for both of you. You might want to pack a few snacks and water for your adventure.
2. SHARE A HOME BAKED TREAT
Love a yummy treat? Bake yourself your favorite cookies and make some easy Dough ReMia’s Doggie Dough treats for your dog (cookies, "barkscotti" or "pupcakes" your pup will love!) or find another favorite recipe. If you want to make it even more special, pack a blanket and go on a picnic (even if it’s in your own backyard!) What’s better than lounging and snacking with your best friend?
3. PLAN A DOG MOM PLAYDATE
Set up a playdate with your pup and other dog moms in your life. Meet at a park, your house, etc. Bring a few toys for them to play with and you can spend time with both your pup and friends at the same time. Does it get much better?
4. CAPTURE THE MOMENT
Capture a special Dog Mom moment whether you take a selfie, use the timer feature on your phone/camera, or hire a professional photographer. You will truly appreciate looking at it down the road and seeing your special bond- It will always make you smile! Share your photo with us on Instagram using #LoveDoughReMia
Snuggling with your pup always makes everything better, and Dog Mom’s Day is no exception! Take advantage of lounging on the couch or snuggling in bed for a little longer than usual. Why not watch a favorite movie together (A dog themed movie is even better: Secret Life of Pets, A Dog’s Purpose, Because of Winn Dixie, Benji, Marley and Me, Homeward Bound, Beethoven… the list goes on!) Pop some popcorn and bring some treats for your pup, too. So cozy!
6. GO SHOPPING!
Treat yourself to gifts for you and your furry friend at dog-friendly stores! Find neighborhood pet stores near you that allow you to bring your dog (or an outdoor Farmer's Market.) If not, you can always shop online with your furry friend under your feet. Dog + Shopping= Fun! You can always get another special Dog Mom in your life an e-Gift Card to pick out something special.
Obviously there are so many more things that you can do to celebrate your special bond, but hopefully this gives you some ideas where to start and some excuses to spend some extra quality time together. And, tell everyone else: "Sorry, I can't tonight. My dog and I have plans."
Wishing you a very Happy Dog Mom’s Day from all of us at Dough ReMia’s Doggie Dough! We hope you have a wonderful time celebrating with your favorite furry companion. XOXO
