Bring in the new year with pets with activities such as a fun-filled trip or a pamper session. By Anushka Goel
Festive times can be tough for pets, as loud noises and the heavy, sugar-laden snacks lying around can be harmful. But celebrating with your pooches is also important, to make them realise that they’re a part of the family and celebrations and help them feel loved.
So, celebrate this New Year with pets by taking them out on a trip, cafe or pampering them at a pet spa, and indulge in some much-needed bonding time with your furry buddy.
Celebrate New Year With Pets
Take your pet on a fun trip
Pet-friendly holidays are some of the best ways you can bond with your furry friends, especially if you have a dog or a cat. Check out staycations near you that allow pets or go on a road trip with your pooch to indulge in some much-needed travel TLC.
Road trips in a car or caravan are a good idea to take with your pooch, but if you’re planning on travelling far, you can book a train or flight ticket for them. In India, few flights offer transport for animals, so be sure to check out the travel rules for them before you plan such a trip.
When travelling with a pooch, ensure that the car/train/air travel is comfortable for them. If on-road, make sure to take enough breaks so as to let them stretch their legs out, and carry games and treats to keep them entertained and their stomachs full.
Choose pet-friendly destinations to travel to and do thorough research on properties that allow pets, to avoid last-minute hassles and confusion.
Celebrate New Year with pets at a pet cafe
While you love your Christmas and New Year brunches, your pets love a good outing, too. So this New Year, plan a date with your four-legged friend and take them to a pet-friendly cafe. Indulge them in delicious, pet-friendly treats while you enjoy a meal yourself, and see them prance about with other animals who’re visiting the place! What’s more, you can make the best of a road trip with them if you can find a pet-friendly cafe along your route or at your destination — a win-win for you and your little buddy!
Pamper your pet with a spa
There’s nothing more relaxing than a spa, and your pets deserve one, too! So this New Year, treat them with a little pamper and grooming sesh and take them to a pet spa so that they can relax their tired little paws. And then, indulge them in some delicious treats. The perfect end to 2021!
