How to have a fun Easter with your Dog

If you celebrate Easter, it’s normally a fun filled day for your family to enjoy. It brings us all a moment to remember that new life is among us and refreshes us with yet again another spring to wash away the wintry mess. But along with that it also brings us fun crafts, egg hunts, and even that mysterious rabbit who leaves baskets of goodies to you to find. Let’s make sure your Easter is all about the fun and does not bring any dog related accidents with these simple tips.


WHAT TO AVOID


Chocolate & Candy

 
Of course we have to start with the obvious, chocolate. Easter treats are sugary and chocolatey but clearly are bad for dogs. So, while you are hiding or hunting for Easter eggs and baskets it’s smart to keep your dog away from harmful human treats. No one wants a pup with an upset stomach on any day let alone a holiday.

 

Fattening Foods

 Deviled Eggs, Ham, Gravy and other fattening foods should be avoided. If you are coloring eggs feel free to give your dog some nibbles of plain hard boiled eggs but once they become deviled eggs, do not share them with your dog as they contain mayonnaise and spices that are not healthy for doggos. Gravy and other tasty Easter dishes can contain onion and garlic which are toxic for dogs and high in fat. And since ham is high in fat and normally coated with a sugary glaze it is rather unhealthy for dogs as well.

 

A Better Easter Dinner for your Dog

 
Instead of worrying about which Easter dish is safe for your dog, how about you just make them their own special meal? Grab your dog’s regular kibble, add our Grain Free or Wheat Free Base Mix (follow the directions on the bag) and top with a chopped hard boiled egg. Your dog will love all those interesting flavors. Plus they will have health benefits and be totally safe to digest.

 


Set up a Special Doggy Hunt

 
While there are plenty of things your dog should not enjoy on Easter, that doesn’t mean they should be completely left out! Grab a few empty Easter eggs and instead of candy, place some of our Jerky or Functional Baked Treats inside and hide them for your dog to find. Whether you do your hunts inside or outside, it would be best to do your doggy one either in a separate area or completing it first so you know your dog won’t accidentally get an egg full of candy from a missed egg. If they are having a hard time getting the concept of finding the treats, open an egg and let them enjoy the treat and then walk them around and give them a little help. Your dog will love the fresh air and the yummy treats.

 

 

We hope you enjoy Easter Sunday with your family. Furry or not.
