Easter is a time for family, fun, and celebration. And what better way to include your furry family member in the festivities than with some Easter-themed activities? Here are five ideas for Easter fun with your dog.

1. Give them an Edible Easter card

Who says that humans have to have all the colourful fun when it comes to Easter cards? Not the good people at Scoff!

2. Organise an Easter Egg Hunt

To start, gather some dog-friendly treats or toys that can be hidden around your yard or home. Make sure to choose items that are safe for your dog to eat and play with. Next, set up the hunt by hiding the treats in various spots, making sure they are easily accessible for your dog to find. Once everything is set up, release your dog and watch as they eagerly search for their prizes.

You can also use plastic eggs filled with treats as an added challenge. Make sure to supervise the hunt though, to ensure your dog doesn’t eat anything they shouldn’t. With a little planning and creativity, you can create a memorable Easter egg hunt that will provide them with mental stimulation and exercise and you with a lot of joy!

3. Bake (or buy!) some Easter Treats

Try baking some homemade dog treats shaped like bunnies or eggs. Not only does it allow you to provide your pet with delicious and healthy snacks, but it also gives you the opportunity to get creative in the kitchen. When baking treats for your dog, it is important to use ingredients that are safe for them to consume. Avoid using chocolate, raisins, grapes, onions, or any other toxic foods. Instead, opt for ingredients like peanut butter, pumpkin puree, oats, and carrots.

If you don’t fancy grabbing your apron and mixing bowl, then there is always Barking Bakery, who make all sorts of sweet treats for dogs, including Easter Mini iced Trios.

4. Take an Easter Stroll

The British weather has been unpredictable of late – to say the least! – but that shouldn’t stop us from enjoying a walk with man’s best buddy! Take your pup on a springtime walk to enjoy the blooming flowers and fresh air. This is a great way to bond with your furry friend while celebrating the season.
