6 Ways to Celebrate Easter with your Dog

Safeguard your furry family this Easter with our 6 exciting, pet-approved activities! Protect them from hazards like chocolate and toxic plants, while still showering them with love and fun. Our indoor scavenger hunt, Easter basket, and homemade treats make for unforgettable holiday memories. Celebrate safely, together!

As pet owners, we know that our furry friends are an integral part of our families. They bring us so much joy and love, especially during the holidays. And Easter is no exception!

However, amidst all the excitement and festivities, it's important to keep in mind that some Easter traditions can pose serious risks to our pets. Chocolate is often the first thing that comes to mind, but it's not the only hazard. For example, some spring flowers like Easter Lilies and Daffodils can be toxic to dogs, and it's essential to research any native flowers in your area to find out if they're safe. Also, any sweets containing Xylitol are highly toxic, and hot crossed buns should never be given to dogs. Even plastic eggs can pose a risk, as they're the perfect size to get lodged in your dog's throat.

That being said, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate Easter safely with your furry friend. Here are 6 ways to enjoy Easter with your dog while keeping them happy and healthy.

  1. Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunts are a fun activity for families and children, but unfortunately, most are not pet-friendly. This is largely due to the fact that many of the treats we give to our children are not safe for dogs. It's important to keep your dog away from any event where chocolate will be left on the ground, as it can be toxic for them.

If you want to plan a scavenger hunt for your dog, it's best to avoid any treats that are not specifically made for dogs. One easy way to do this is to hide parts of their kibble around the house and have them search for it using their sense of smell. This is a fun way to turn mealtime into a game!

Alternatively, you can use dog-friendly treats to plan an indoor or outdoor scavenger hunt. If you have more than one dog, it's important to set up a separate scavenger hunt for each one to ensure that one dog doesn't end up eating all the treats. With a little bit of creativity and planning, you can create a scavenger hunt that is both fun and safe for your furry friend.

  1. Easter Meal Toppers

Holiday themed molds can be filled with a variety of tasty and healthy foods for your dog, such as bone broth, plain Greek yogurt, meats, pureed fruits and vegetables, and even baby food. Once filled, simply freeze them and use them as toppers on your dog's breakfast and dinner for a fun and festive touch.

Another fun idea for Easter is to create hard-boiled eggs with a twist. Crack the shells and add food coloring to create a unique marble effect. This way, your dog can enjoy their own decorated Easter eggs alongside the rest of the family.

And, if you're feeling adventurous, consider adding rabbit to your dog's dish for the first time as a special Easter treat. Just be sure to introduce it gradually and in small amounts to avoid any digestive upset.

  1. Fill an Easter Basket

Why not surprise your dog with their own Easter basket filled with goodies? You can start by picking up some of their favorite treats or trying out some new Easter-themed dog treats.

Toys are another great addition to your dog's Easter basket. You can choose from a variety of interactive toys, such as those that allow you to add treats to them, or even a new stuffed animal for them to play with.

To complete your dog's Easter basket, consider adding an Easter-themed bandana or even a pair of pajamas for them to wear. 

It's important to note to avoid using plastic grass or any other fillers that can pose a choking hazard to your furry friend.

By creating a personalized Easter basket for your dog, you can show them how much you care and include them in the holiday festivities.

  1. Easter Themed Photoshoot

A holiday photo shoot can be a fun and memorable way to celebrate Easter with your furry friend. With a simple pair of bunny ears and some Easter eggs, you can easily stage a photo shoot that captures the spirit of the holiday.

For an added touch, consider having your dog hold an Easter basket if they have mastered the skill of holding objects in their mouth. There are many ways to get creative with your Easter photo shoot, and you can find plenty of inspiration online to design your own unique and personalized session.

By taking the time to capture some special moments with your furry friend, you can create lasting memories that you'll cherish for years to come. So why not gather some props, get your camera ready, and have some fun with your dog this Easter?

Spring weather is one of the best parts of enjoying Easter. Plan a picnic for you and your dog. Pack your favorite sandwich and some snacks for yourself. Then pack your dog's favorite treat and toy. Find a shaded place to enjoy your lunch together and then play your dog’s favorite game.
