With Valentine's Day on the horizon, many pet parents may be spending a bit more time than usual with significant others, but Hartz® is encouraging pet owners to include their pets in the holiday fun. There are many ways to get your dog or cat involved. This Valentine’s Day, pet owners should consider the following activities to brighten their days and make sure their pets feel included.
Send Pet-Themed Valentine Cards
There's no better way to send a message of love than to create an adorable Valentine that features a cute photo of a pet, and Hartz® has everything pet owners need to send the purrfect greeting to say I woof you. Hartz® now has Valentine's Day greeting cards that pet owners can share on Facebook or Twitter, which became available on January 21st and can be found on the Hartz’ Facebook page. These Valentines’ Day cards allow pet parents to import a picture of their dog or cat and customize the card with a background of their choice.
Whip Up Some Homemade Treats
With all of the chocolate and other candies that pet owners will be enjoying on the holiday, pet owners should exercise caution since chocolate can be toxic to pets. However, giving pet dogs or cats a tasty pet-friendly treat could be a wonderful way to repay their love and commitment. Many dog treat recipes are made with simple ingredients that are commonly found in a home's pantry. These treats give your dog a welcome break from the norm.
Too busy to bake? Hartz® also offers a variety of dog and cat treats.
Go On A Weekend Getaway
For many pet parents, staying home alone with their dog or cat could cause them to feel a bit stir crazy. A great alternative is to plan ahead and go on a weekend getaway with their pet. With the abundance of pet-friendly hotels and lodges all over the country, pet parents have plenty of options to choose from when planning a weekend getaway. It will be a welcome reprieve from the responsibilities of home, and both pet owners and their companions can enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation.
