10 Ways to Spoil Your Dog on National Spoil Your Dog Day
10 August 2023 is National Spoil Your Dog Day! It’s a time when every pet owner gets to celebrate the unconditional love and joy our furry companions bring to our lives. It’s a day dedicated to pooch pampering and showering our dogs with extra love. Here are 10 fun ways to spoil your dog on this special day.
1. Make their day with our new treats range
National Spoil Your Dog Day calls for the finest treats and at Hypro Premium we’ve got you covered with delicious and healthy options. Made with superior-quality ingredients and irresistible to all dogs, our new Jerky Chews and Protein Discs are sure to make your pup’s day a memorable one.
2. Offer nutritious pet food
It’s important to consider your dog’s overall health and wellbeing. Our pet food and treats are not only delicious but also packed with essential nutrients. Made with high-quality meats, healthy fats and oils, vitamins, minerals and much more, choosing the Hypro Premium range means your dog is getting exactly what their body needs – so you can spoil them in the best way.
3. Treat-based games for bonding
Playing interactive games with your pup is a fantastic way to strengthen your bond while also keeping them mentally stimulated. Incorporating tasty treats like our Jerky Chews into these activities can add an extra layer of excitement. Try playing hide-and-seek with treats or challenge your dog’s problem-solving skills with treat-dispensing toys.
4. Head outdoors to get their tail wagging
Spoiling your dog doesn’t have to be limited to your home. Head off into the great outdoors with an adventure tailored to them. Maybe they’d love a visit to their favourite dog-friendly cafe, or perhaps the day calls for exploring a new hiking trail. Then to cap off an amazing day, head to your local dog park so they can have a blast with their furry friends.
5. DIY treats made with love
If you enjoy getting creative in the kitchen, why not make some homemade treats for your dog? It’s easy to whip up simple and healthy recipes using dog-friendly ingredients like peanut butter, bananas and chicken. You can even mix in Hypro Premium treats for an extra burst of flavour. Here’s a simple recipe you might like to try:
Peanut Butter Dog Treats
- 1 cup wholemeal flour
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup mashed banana
- ¼ cup stock (e.g. vegetable, chicken or beef)
- Cookie cutter (e.g. bone-shaped)
- Preheat your oven to 180°C.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, peanut butter and banana. Add stock and mix until completely combined. Use your hands to press into a ball of dough.
- Roll out dough so it’s about half a centimetre thick. Use a cookie cutter and place dough biscuits onto a lined baking tray.
- Cook for 18 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool before feeding to your dog.
- You can store leftovers in an airtight container.
6. Take mealtimes to the next level
National Spoil Your Dog Day is the perfect occasion to turn a regular meal into a feast. Improve your pup’s regular food by using Hypro Premium treats as a topping. Crumble a treat over their kibble or mix it into their wet food to make every bite a delight.
7. Treat your pooch to a spa day
Depending on your dog’s temperament, they might enjoy a pampering session with their favourite groomer. And why not add a gentle post-grooming massage to the agenda?
8. Playdate party
Set up a doggy playdate party with your pup’s best friends. You can organise it at your local dog park or even in your own backyard if there’s plenty of room for everyone to run around. Just make sure your dog doesn’t have any territorial issues with other pups on their home turf!
9. Capture the moment with a photoshoot
Honour your dog on this special day by capturing their unique personality in a professional photo session. There are plenty of pet photographers to hire or get creative with your own camera skills. If you feel like dressing up your pup in an adorable outfit, make sure you reward their patience with some delicious treats.
10. Foster love and kindness beyond just today
While National Spoil Your Dog Day is a specific time to celebrate your pup, it’s important to show them the love all year round. Whether it’s spoiling them with the occasional healthy treat or just spending more quality time together, show your appreciation for your furry companion and make every day a special one.
