Today is National Pet Day, and here at Pet Wants Lex we want to make sure you use this day to pamper your furry family members. We put together a list of ideas on how you can celebrate this special day with your pet.

  1. Be adventurous or get active. It has been a long winter, you and your pet have been cooped up, so try getting active or going on an adventure! Think about a long walk, hike, or swim. If your pet loves to stay home then maybe it could be an extra-long play session with their favorite toy.


  1. Take your pet to get a special treat. Your pet might have a favorite treat and taking them to pick out their treat can add a lot of joy to their day. Or you could surprise them when you get home and watch them truly enjoy themselves. You can look up great natural treats at


  1. Take a nap together. Taking a moment to snuggle up with your pet and relax is a great way for both of you to recharge after an adventure or a long play session. Depending on the weather, you might soak up the sun outside or snuggle up inside.


  1. Watch a pet movie together. There are a lot of great pet movies for the two of you to enjoy. Some of our favorites are The Secret Life of Pets, Homeward Bound, Marley & Me, and 101 Dalmatians. What pet movie is your favorite?


  1. Show them extra love. Giving extra love is a great way to show your pet how much you care. Whether it’s a long belly rub, extra play time, or simply an extra hug and a kiss, the best way to celebrate National Pet Day is by bonding with your pet.
