February 20th is National Love Your Pet Day.
If you’re like us, then you probably don’t need just one day to show your love and appreciation for furry friends. Nonetheless, like all special occasions, this day is dedicated to showing our beloved pets the added care and attention they deserve.
If you would like to do something special for your four-legged friend, here are some tips as to how you can celebrate this special day.
Spend quality time together
Most of the time, our pets are happy to just spend quality time with the people they love. Whether it’s going to the beach, going on a long walk, or relaxing on the couch, setting aside quality time for you and your pet is a great way to show your love and appreciation for them.
Indulge them with their favourite treat or food
Another way to make this day extra special for your pet is by spoiling them with their favourite treat. Marking this occasion by indulging your pet with their favourite food or treat is a great way to make your pet feel appreciated and special. Just remember not to give them TOO much ☺
Bring home a new toy
If your pet loves toys, then perhaps consider bringing home a new toy to add to their collection
Similar to our relationships with other humans, our relationship with our pet is strengthened by spending quality time together and through acts of love and appreciation. American humorist Josh Billings famously said, “in the whole history of the world there is but one thing that money can not buy … to wit – the wag of a dog’s tail.” Regardless of the type of pet, the love of an animal simply cannot be bought, but rather, it must be earned through the establishment of a meaningful relationship. By setting time aside out of your busy day to show your pet your love and devotion to them, they will surely return the feeling back to you, which will strengthen your existing relationship.
