Ideas to inspire

by Richard Rowlands | 10 months, 1 week ago

Every animal lovers' dream is to spend a lazy day just pampering their favorite pet to their hearts' content. How do you make your pet's day? Here are some ideas!

Maybe you wake up and decide to take a trip with your pup to Nature's Circle. And while you're there, why not pick up a bag of their delicious gourmet goat milk dog treats for your furry friend to enjoy later?
Afterwards, you visit the dog park and notice your pup is the center of attention. Why? Because he's kitted out with a stylish leash from DingDog, and a sparkly handmade beaded collar from HautePawz, of course!
To complete the look, he's sporting a custom-made bow tie from Haute Dogs Design Co, and an adorable dog bandana from Mechelle's Mutts.
If the sun is out, maybe he's wearing a cute cotton Star T-shirt from Smooch La Pooch. But don't worry if it starts to rain – he can slip into a fully lined, weather-resistant coat from Bubba BowWow Boutique.  And if it's cold outside? He'll be warm and toasty wrapped up in a chunky doggie snood, sweater or scarf from BKLYN Handmade.
While you're at the dog park, you'll need some doggie treats and toys to keep your four-legged friend happy. Take a look inside your colorful treat bag from Krazy Minds Designs. It's full of mouth-watering natural dog treats from Nature's Circle. Dig deeper and you'll find a one-of-a-kind tug toy from Tiller Tugs!

Soon, it's time to go home. But before you do, make sure to snap a pic of your pup having fun on his special day. Later, you can send it to Pet Portrait Artist Carol Stoecker. She'll use her artistic skills to create a fun and whimsical painting of your precious pet.
Phew! It's been a long day. Now you're home, but your dog's gotten pretty dirty on your big day out. No problem. Run a bath and make sure he's squeaky clean with Mr. Wigglebottom's or 4 Paws All-Natural dog shampoos and soaps.
After his bath, your dog is exhausted. While he takes a well-earned rest, why not indulge in some online shopping? You could pick up a personalized treat box from Cades & Birch, or a bronze ID tag from Greece by VacForPets that's hand stamped with your pet's name from mixed metals.
Fancy treating yourself? Consider a pair of dazzling Swarovski crystal paw print earrings from Serene Bayside Jewelry, or a handcrafted charm bracelet from Dangle Charms.
