The flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and butterflies are fluttering. Which means one thing: the Easter Bunny is right around the corner! Help your pup hop into spring with some fresh treats, toys, and other Easter goodies with a dog-friendly Easter basket and some Easter themed activities.
Remember the rules when it comes to your dog’s Easter presents: no chocolate, no xylitol products, and be careful with Easter grass. This means keeping your kids’ Easter baskets out of reach of curious canines.
To make sure you abide by these rules, the Easter Bunny should stick to presents and games that are dog-safe and fun!
Here are some of our favorite Easter festivities that dogs go crazy for:
- Let your dog create some pawsome springtime artwork.
- Take your pup to get her picture taken with the Easter Bunny.
- Let her enjoy some extra time outside chasing butterflies and birds.
- Invite some of her furry friends over, hide treats and new toys around the house, and let them enjoy a pup-tastic ‘Easter egg hunt.’
- If your dog enjoys dressing up, put her in her springtime best, and arrange for an outdoor photoshoot.
We all know the most iconic Easter activity is diving into the basket. To make sure your dog’s Easter basket is safe, use cat grass or fabric instead of plastic Easter grass.
Putting together an Easter basket can be fun and easy, and the sparkle in your dog’s eyes is worth the effort. Surprise your best friend with some real tail-wagging presents this Easter!
