7 Ways to Spoil Your Pets

Guest Writer – Lizzie Weakley

It may not take much to keep our pets happy, for they are happy just to see us at the end of the day. It’s nice, though, to come up with some new ways to make our pets happy throughout the week. Here are 7 ways to spoil your pets to make sure your pets are happier than ever.

7 Ways to Spoil Your Pets (So They'll Love You Even More)

Seven Ways to Spoil Your Pets

1.  Play Round Robin

If you play with your pet, you usually only play one game at a time. Make sure you vary it. Why not try playing three games at a time, like fetch, and tug-of-war, and hide-and-seek? You can make your pet happy and keep him or her surprised as you play at the end of the day.

2.  Go Somewhere New

If you have a dog, try going to a new place with him or her. You can go to a park, or a walk in a new location, or make a play-date with a different dog. Be sure to bring treats, and make your dog loves going out with you, never knowing where you might end up.

3.  Make a Play Date

Why not let your pet play with a friend’s pet?  It can be a lot of fun to play with a friend, as we all know, but be sure you know the other animal.  If you take your pet over to a friend’s house, you may be in for a fun time. Your pet will thank you, and you’ll get to see a friend, too.

4.  Learn a New Trick

Both dogs and cats can learn tricks, believe it or not. Try treating your dog or cat to a play session where you actually learn something. You can use treats to train your pet, and you’re sure to love what happens when you give the command and see your pet follow orders.

5.  Go to the Vet

The vet is your pet’s friend. All animals should get routine check-ups, and whether you have a dog or cat, it’s a good thing to make an appointment. Many vets will also groom your pet and cut his or her nails for you, so that is one of the best reasons, and also the fact that your pet’s health is important to everyone in the household (Source: Animal Care Center of Forest Park).

6.  Try Something New

Old favorites are catnip and dog treats, but why not try a new toy?  You can buy a new item for your pet at a local pet store, and you’re sure to love it when your pet gets happy over you having mixed it up. Don’t always stick with the same old thing.  Try mixing up toys and treats for the best results.

7.  Try New Smells

Both dogs and cats have great senses of smell. Why not try a new scented toy or object they can play with? They love to be olfactorily stimulated, so try playing hide-and-seek with this new toy. They’re sure to love you forever, as if they didn’t already.

  1. I love taking our dogs places– I can’t take Gizzy, with Hannibull, or Precious because –he is so bossy( he’s a chaweiner) where the other to are pits( a red nose and a blue razor) But when they do get to go on car rides or for long walks they always come home and tell the other and act like they are the king of the roost for the day. All 3 of them are so funny. New toys — I have to put Gizzy’s up when the other two come in to play ,because they will steal his. Gizzy gets so mad.( as I said he is bossy) and he knows how to make them feel badly– they all get treats at the same time,so thats never a problem. Its like 3 little kids sometimes. Thanks for sharing the great ideas. 🙂

  2. These are great tips. My dogs love visiting new places, particularly if they get to make a new doggie friend. Training time is also fun for all of us!

    • I always loved training dogs. We only have one dog right now, and he’s a senior with a lot of achy joints, so we don’t get to do too much with him, other thank car rides, of course. He still loves those rides. Thanks so much for your comment. I’m glad you stopped by. 🙂

    • That’s so kind of you, Carol. Thank you for rescuing those dogs. We have a 13 year old rescue too, and like you say, the appreciation he shows is like none other. They know. It’s hard not to spoil them, especially because you know they deserve it 10x now. I’m glad you stopped by! Take care.

  3. Fantastic ideas and it really made me mis my dog who passed away last year. He was a neglected dog I rescued as a amll pup from off the road and I tried to return him to a house close by who threw him on the floor. He was so skinny and afraid of everything. he was difficult to toilet train till we clicked he was afraid of wide open spaces. He was a great mate for over 8 years and stole my heart completely.

    • I’m sorry that you lost your precious dog last year, Debbie. It’s so hard to lose an animal, especially one that has a story like yours. I’m glad he got to spend a lot of good years with you though. He’ll be forever in your heart. Thank you for sharing your story. 🙂

    • Aww, I love taking them on play dates. I miss doing that. Our Jake is an old man now and he suffers terrible from achy joints, so he doesn’t play anymore. I’ll bet Mickey and Banner are so cute together. Thanks for sharing! Peace.
