Happy Father’s Day!

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a pet-loving dad, here are a few ideas:

  • Donate to a local shelter or animal welfare group.  You can do this in Dad’s name, or in memory of a beloved pet.  There are many hard-working, kind-hearted local organizations your donation can help.  If Dad is an outdoorsman, he might appreciate a donation in his name to a wildlife rescue group.
  • Take Dad & his dog for a hike or a daytripRead about traveling with your dog for fun ideas.
  • Make a visit to a dogpark part of Dad’s day.
  • Dine al fresco with Fido.  (This video gives great tips for taking Fido to a restaurant, on a hike or to a dogpark.)
  • Get Dad an interactive toy that he & Rover can play with.  A classic favorite of many dog-lovers is the Chuckit! Ultra.
  • Is Dad a runner? Try a hands-free leash to make a jog with Rover more enjoyable.
  • We offer gift certificates for dog and cat training. Get the family involved in a fun summer project!
  • While we caution against getting a pet as a gift, Father’s Day could be a good time to begin a family discussion about adopting a pet.  Check our website for tips on choosing a pet, local shelters & rescue groups, and books on the subject.  Contact us for help choosing, preparing for & training your pet.  We’d love to help!
