Fun Things To Do With Your Pets
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.
Currently, we have three cats and one dog. Meep and Hazel, are two loveable sisters we rescued at the age of 5 weeks. Beulah is a rescue we found at a cat sanctuary last Thanksgiving. Elvis is my daughter’s beagle who we are fostering until she gets a larger apartment.
4 Fun Things To Do With Your Pets This Summer
Agility Trials: Have you heard of these? It is an obstacle course for pets which have tunnels, hurdles, balance beams, and climbing structures. You can make them at home and many dog parks are building them as well.
They help with your dog’s agility, get rid of built up energy, and makes exercise fun. You can run along side your pet to encourage them and get yourself some exercise!
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.
When it comes to my pets, I want products that will last a long time and can stand up to their rough play. I also want nutritional treats and food made from the highest quality ingredients. I do not go anywhere but PetSmart for our pets food, toys, accessories and other must have pet items.
PetSmart has experienced staff members to answer your questions and I can get everything I need in one place instead. With the successful adoption program with PetSmart, more than 5 million pets have been placed in forever homes over 10 years.
