It’s Easter! One of our favourite times of year at Dogs for Dogs. The days are getting longer, the flowers are out and the long, wet winter is finally over.
If you are lucky enough to be able to spend the four-day Easter weekend with friends and family, you are probably going on an egg hunt or two and enjoying some tasty seasonal treats.
However, loving dog owners need to be aware that this holiday can also pose some dangers to your four-legged friends. Easter chocolate and the currants in hot cross buns can be super toxic for your dog and their shiny wrappers may be oh-so-tempting to many – but can lead to health problems if ingested.
Easter is a family time, and you’ll want your furry family members to enjoy the weekend as much as you – so Digs for Dogs have rounded up our favourite dog-friendly gifts so your pet can join in the fun.
Doggy Easter biscuits
The Pupcake Princess doggy bakery (www.pupcakeprincess.co.uk) offer a range of healthy treats for your dog to enjoy this Easter time. Packed with delicious, nutritious ingredients, the wide range of cakes and biscuits make the perfect Easter snack.
Dog-friendly Easter Egg
The best part of Easter? The chocolate! Hatch Wells produce a fantastic dog-friendly Easter egg made from Carob – safe on their tummies, and just as tasty!
A doggy Easter Egg hunt
An egg hunt is a huge amount of fun and will stimulate the senses of your best pal. Either buy some mini dog-friendly chocolate eggs, or try these plastic eggs available from most supermarkets. Fill them with your dog’s favourite treats – and then watch him or her sniff them out! To add to the fun, hide them in different places – the long grass, your patio and even higher up on window sills.
Remember to choose larger size plastic eggs to prevent your dog from choking, and ensure you supervise the egg hunt at all times.
Easter fancy dress costume
Kids dressing up for Easter? Let your dog join in the fun too! B&M do a fantastic range of cute costumes from just £1.99 to ensure your dog looks the part. Some dogs love ‘em, some dogs hate ‘em so make sure you are led by your pet.
Easter themed pet toys
What dog doesn’t love a cuddly toy? Pets at Home stock a wide range of Easter-themed dog toys including chicks, eggs and even carrots! We wouldn’t want our dogs to disturb the real Easter Bunny so this cuddly version is the perfect playmate. From £8.99
We hope you have enjoyed our Eggstavaganza of Easter fun for your pet. Make sure you supervise your dog with toys, treats and games at all times to keep you both safe.
We wish you and your pets enjoy a very Happy Easter!
