I was compensated for this post, either with products or monetarily, but all opinions about these great products from PetSmart are completely my own! When I was growing up, my house was filled with the happy barking of our to Irish Setter dogs, Sean and Tuffy. At an early age, my sister and I were taught how to respect, love and have fun with our pets. As an adult, I have had both cats and dogs as part of my furry family. Currently, we have two cats, Meep and Hazel, two loveable sisters we rescued at the age of 5 weeks. My daughter and her fiance have two dogs, Elvis and Ringo, who I call my grand dogs! When I visit my daughter, I love to take my grand dogs out and about in Atlanta. Do you like to hang out with your pets outside? Do you enjoy any of these fun things to do with your pets this summer?
4 Fun Things To Do With Your Pets This Summer
Animal Assisted Activities: Many hospitals and nursing homes have programs that allow pets to visit with the patients and residents. It has shown to boost moods and increase socialization. I worked in a hospital while in nursing school that utilized pet therapy. I wish I could express to you how much joy those pets brought to the patients as well as myself and the other nurses. I mean, who wouldn’t be happy with these two sweet boys snuggling with them?
Chew Time: Every pet needs to chew, no matter their age to keep their jaws strong and teeth clean. The cats absolutely adore their “mousies” and Feline Greenies catnip flavored dental treats from PetSmart. Meep could eat her “greenies” all day if I let her! And how cute is the pet bowl from PetSmart? I get all of my chew toys and treats for both the cats as well as for Chelsea’s dogs from PetSmart. I rely on their quality as well as their affordability.
Floor Time: I love to get on the floor and wrestle with Ringo and Elvis or get a kitty toy and play with Meep and Hazel. This is a great time for you and your pet to bond. It is also a great way for your pet to work on their motor and cognitive skills.
