Ein Hoch auf unsere Vierbeiner! PALOPA

Cheers to our four-legged friends!

It is not without reason that dogs are considered man's best friend. Dogs are our constant companions - they never leave our side and their loyalty and love lasts forever. Sometimes dogs can even replace your partner or your own family. But as an everyday hero for many people, he also has a special social significance: As a police dog, he uses his sense of smell to fight crime, as a rescue dog, he rescues people who have been buried, and as a guide dog, he lends his sense of sight. In addition, as a herding dog, he helps to herd livestock and he also provides valuable services to people as a guard dog.

In short: dogs are simply great!

International World Dog Day on October 10th is a great opportunity to show your best friend how much he means to you and how grateful you are to have him by your side. In this blog post we give you inspiration for what you can do with your four-legged friend on World Dog Day.

10 cool ideas to celebrate World Dog Day

#1 Dog walk with friends

Hikes are the most fun together! So invite your friends with dogs to go on a hike together. Afterwards you can, for example, stop off at a restaurant to eat something delicious. Don't forget to pack a special treat. Your dog also deserves a boost after the strenuous hike and the wild fights with his friends.

Alternatively, you can organize a picnic or barbecue evening with dog lovers. It is important that your four-legged friends are the center of attention and enjoy their full attention.

#2 Dog shopping

Does your dog need something new in his dog crate? Make him happy by buying him a new raincoat, a cozy blanket or a new collar, for example. If you don't feel like shopping online, you can grab your four-legged friend and drive to the nearest dog shop. What's particularly practical is that you can try on the items you want for your dog right there.

#3 Time for new tricks

No matter how old your dog is, it's never too late to learn something new. Is there a trick or command that you have been wanting to teach your dog for a long time? But have you lacked the time so far? Use World Dog Day to learn this command. Your four-legged friend will definitely enjoy the mental challenge and, above all, the time spent with you!

#4 Photoshoot

How long has it been since you did a photo shoot together? Grab your phone and take some cool snaps together. Maybe you have created an Instagram channel for your dog and can post the new photos immediately. Show the world what an unbeatable team you two are.

#5 Do something yourself

Get creative and make something for your dog. For example, you can surprise him with a homemade dog toy or collar. You can freely decide on the design and color. After all, you know best what suits your dog and how its advantages can best be showcased.

#6 Bake dog biscuits

Time for a special kind of reward! Grab a whisk yourself and whip up some irresistible dog biscuits. We regularly provide you with recipe ideas in our newsletter. If you haven't registered yet, you can do so here .

#7 Pursue favorite activity

What does your dog like to do most? Be sure to include his favorite activity on this special day. Take a long walk in the forest, go jogging together, play outside together or visit his dog daycare center.

#8 Cuddle time

Spend a few cozy hours together. Cuddle up on the couch together and watch a dog movie. Your four-legged friend can enjoy a few long cuddles and chew on his favorite chew.

#9 Trip to the wildlife park

A trip to the wildlife park is an exciting experience for your four-legged friend because there is an incredible amount to discover - a wide variety of animal species and many exciting smells. The perfect place to promote his socialization and train him under distraction. This is what a successful day can look like.

#10 Do something good

Support an animal shelter near you with a donation. Animal shelters often need blankets, dog food or toys. Just ring the bell to ask what is needed. Alternatively, you can make a dog from the animal shelter really happy by taking it for a walk. Or you can offer your help for other activities in the animal shelter.

We hope that you have a few unforgettable moments with your four-legged friend on World Dog Day. Have a nice day! Woof woof!
