February 20th is National Love Your Pet Day! From dogs and cats to birds and bunnies, many households include a pet. In fact, the National Pet Owners Survey states that about 85 million American families own a pet!  Our pets are there for us no matter what, making our days brighter and our smiles bigger and more frequent. So it’s only right we bring the same light into their world. National Love Your Pet Day is the perfect day to celebrate your furry, feathery, or scaly friend. Here’s how to celebrate National Love Your Pet Day!


What better way to celebrate National Love Your Pet Day than with treats? Make your pet their favorite treat, or perhaps you can find a new recipe online. You can also visit a local pet store and purchase some tasty treats. Cats, dogs, birds, or hamsters — you’re sure to find something special and tasty for your pet. 


Fetch? Tug of war? Or simply running around the apartment? Your pet likely has a favorite game or activity. Spend a dedicated amount of time playing with your pet today! This is one of the best ways to make sure your pet is having a great time. Set some time aside today to play!


To your pet, nothing feels quite as good as the warmth of the sun on their fur! So if you can, take your pet outside today. Whether you take them for a walk or let them sit on your patio or balcony, they’re sure to enjoy some time in the sun. Take them to a field to play or stroll through a local pet-friendly park. 


If your pet loves to play, get them a new toy! Head to your local pet store and pick out their favorite. If you can, you can even bring them with you into the store and see if they can find one they like! If your pet goes through toys quickly, you can make many different games and toys using simple household items. For instance, you can keep your dog entertained by filling a pool towel with pieces of their food and tying it in a knot! This activity not only keeps them occupied, but it’s also a great way to promote mental stimulation. Get creative to make sure that your pet has a day full of fun!
