Mother’s Day is just a few days away, and we’ve rounded up some fun ideas for those moms who have children of the four-legged variety.
Take a Walk in Style
Leashes and collars not only show off your dog’s personality, but also the owners, so make sure your pet mom’s next walk reflects her style. These fun retractable leashes from 26 Bars & a Band come in a variety of prints including preppy, rambo, London calling and Fifth Avenue.
A Gift That Also Gives
The Humane Society of the United States has an online store filled with gifts for the mom that also helps animals. From magazine subscriptions to jewelry to handbags and t-shirts, there is something fun for every mom in their store.
If she’s the type of pet mom who has everything, consider making a donation in her name to an animal charity close to her heart.
Leaving on a Jet Plane…
Does your favorite dog mom like to travel with their pup? Book her a trip to the Canine Club Getaway event June 25-29 in Lake George, N.Y. This pet friendly event brings together dog people from across the country and provides a variety of outdoor activities for you and your pet to enjoy, including fly ball, swimming and hiking.
If she’s a pet writer or blogger, buy her a ticket to one, or more, of the various conferences specifically designed for this area of expertise. These conferences help pet bloggers and writers connect with companies, hone their writing skills and network with others in their field.
BlogPaws, Aug. 25-27, will be in Tysons Corner, Va. just outside Washington, D.C. and features notable animal advocates like the guys from Rescue Ink and Heidi Ganahl, of Camp Bow Wow.
BarkWorld will take place in Atlanta, Ga. Sept. 29-Oct. 1, and features pet experts like Victoria Stilwell of Animal Planet’s “It’s Me or the Dog” and Ted Rheingold, founder and CEO of Dogster and Catster.
Let’s face it, we all think our pets are just the most adorable thing in the world. Cute kitten videos go viral on YouTube every day and there are websites dedicated to fun pet picture from around the world. So, why not have that cuteness capture by a professional. Find a photographer in your area who specializes in pets images and hire them to do a photo shoot of your favorite mom and their pet.
Camera shy? Think of having a customized painting done of your favorite mom’s pet. Artists who specialize in animal prints, like Vicki Boatright, of BZTAT Studios, brings your pet, and their personality to life on canvas.
