Celebrating Dog Mother's Day
Mother’s Day is a special occasion to celebrate and honour all the amazing mothers out there. But what about dog mums? As a dog owner, you have undoubtedly become a mother figure to your furry companion. Dogs bring joy, companionship, and unconditional love into our lives, and Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show them how much we appreciate their presence in our lives. In this blog post, we’ll explore some ways to celebrate Mother’s Day as a dog owner.
Spend quality time with your dog
The majority of dogs are social animals, and spending quality time with them is crucial to their overall well-being. Take some time on Mother’s Day to go for a long walk with your furry friend, play their favourite game, or simply cuddle with them on the couch. Your dog will appreciate the extra attention, and you’ll both benefit from the bonding experience.
Treat your dog to something special
Just like we enjoy treats on special occasions, our dogs do too! Consider treating your furry friend to something special on Mother’s Day, like a new toy or a tasty treat. You can even bake some homemade dog treats to celebrate the occasion.
Get a professional photo shoot
A professional photo shoot with your furry friend is a wonderful way to capture your special bond and create lasting memories. Many photographers specialise in pet photography and can help you create beautiful and personalised images that you will treasure forever. Some of our favourite dog photographers are Phodography by Lis and Furtography in Christchurch and Jo Moore Photography in Wellington.
Volunteer for a dog rescue
If you’re looking for a way to give, consider volunteering for a dog rescue. Many rescues need volunteers to help care for dogs, apply for grants, and fundraise, and your time and love will be greatly appreciated by both the dogs and the rescue staff. Check out one of our personal favourite rescue organisations, New Zealand Chihuahua Rescue.
Visit a dog-friendly venue
Many venues around New Zealand are dog friendly. Supporting small business and visiting a dog friendly cafe or bar with your furry friend is a fun way to celebrate Mother’s Day while also socialising with other dog owners and their pets. Some of our favourite dog friendly venues are Sprig and Fern Merivale in Christchurch, Parrotdog Bar in Wellington, and The Beer Spots in Auckland.
As a dog owner, you play a crucial role in your furry friend’s life, and Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show them how much you appreciate their presence in your life. Whatever you choose to do, celebrate the occasion in a way that honours your special bond with your furry companion. Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing dog mums out there!
