Ways to Spend Mother’s Day with Your Dog, Plus a Photo Contest

Dog Moms

Here at Muttropolis we believe that having a pet definitely lands you in the “mom” category. So, we’d like to wish all of the doggy moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day! If you don’t have children, you’re probably used to this day coming and going with no special wishes, cards or gifts, but you can still enjoy the day with your four-legged friend, who is sure to show you love in other ways.

Below are just a few of our favorite ways to share special time with our pups. Perhaps one of these suggestions will be the perfect date for you and your dog this Mother’s Day! Also, be sure to make it to the bottom of this post to learn more about the Mother’s Day photo contest we’re running for a short time only on Facebook!

A Dog-Friendly Lunch Date

Dog-friendly Dining

We’re lucky down here in San Diego with an abundance of dog-friendly dining options, and we sure hope the same goes for wherever you call home. No dog likes to be left behind, so on Mother’s Day search out an establishment that will let your dog come too. If you have a hard time finding a dog-friendly spot, you can always make a meal at home or grab something to go and enjoy it in a dog-friendly park or beach. We’re picturing a splendid picnic in the sunshine!

A Play Date with Other Doggie Moms

Dog Play Date

Do you have the perfect dog and mom duo in mind? Great, make a date! If not, head to your nearest dog park. The excellent thing about dog parks is that you don’t have to coordinate the play date ahead of time, simply show up with your fido and you’re sure to run into other dogs and doggie moms. Don’t forget to wish them a Happy Mother’s Day!

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Dogs Outdoors

Hit a trail, head to the beach, or enjoy another outdoor activity for the afternoon. The fresh air and exercise will leave you both feeling fantastic. Water loving dogs will especially love this suggestion, and if it’s a hot day, you may want to jump right in with them! As with any outdoor activity, be sure to bring plenty of water for both you and your pup.

Snuggle Time

Dog Snuggling

This is the easiest suggestion of them all. We don’t doubt that your dog gets an abundance of love, but no one ever said there could be too much, right? Giving your pup some extra lap time or snuggling up for a nap will not only make them feel special, it’ll warm your heart too, and what Mother doesn’t love that feeling!

Now, about that photo contest we mentioned. If you haven’t liked us yet on Facebook, be sure to do that first. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we’ve launched a photo contest asking our customers to post their favorite Mommy and Me picture on our Facebook page. All submissions are in the running for a chance to win a $100 Muttropolis Gift Card! The contest ends on Friday May 9th at 12:00 PM PST, and the winner will be selected at random and announced at 12:30 PM. We can’t wait to see your snapshots!
