Ways to Spoil your Dog!

Ways to Spoil your Dog!

Here at Camp Bow Wow we love dogs, of course! More than anything, we love to spoil our dogs and wanted to share a list of activities to do and places to go to show your pup how much they mean to you in a way that’s fun for you both!

Host a play date:

  • Invite your pup’s best buds over for a paw-ty! Check out this post here for the ultimate guide on hosting a pup paw-ty
  • Bake delicious, homemade treats for your guests. These recipes are pup approved favorites
  • Put together a goodie bag with a stuffed toy, snazzy bandanna, and treats
  • Set up a selfie station for your pups and human guests. But first, make sure you and your pup practice getting a picture perfect selfie with these tips

Make Pupsicles for your pup to finish out the hot summer months:

  • Create healthy, delicious treats that can keep your dog busy
    • Use baby food, applesauce, or chicken/beef broth for a base
    • Customize the flavors for your pup’s preference and health
  • Include add-ins like pieces of carrots, apples, banana, or even small treats

Teaching a fun new trick is a great way to spoil your pup by forging your bond and giving your pup the opportunity to earn their favorite treats!

  • Check out your local Camp’s dog training schedule
  • Plus, it's a great thing to work on at home when the weather turns sour
  • It’s a rewarding activity that wears out your pup and gives you a new trick to show off

Create a backyard oasis for your pup!

  • Fill up a kiddie pool and throw tennis balls or Frisbees in the water
  • Make a splash park with sprinklers
  • Put up a shade sail or umbrella for a reprieve from the sun
  • Bring out one of your homemade pupsicles to help your pup cool off
  • No matter if your dog is a natural swimmer, it's important to take water safety seriously. Here's our list of top water safety tips

Take your pup on an exciting adventure to visit a dog-friendly establishment:

  • Take them shopping at your local pet supply store to pick out their own toy
  • Visit a restaurant, brewery, or café that allows pups to join the fun and ask for the pup approved menu
  • Go to a movie, baseball game, or an end of summer pool party for a dog day or bark at the park!
  • Check out other dog-friendly opportunities near you at

And finally, bring your pup to your local Camp Bow Wow to meet new friends, exercise, or have a spa day! We’d love to see them and spoil them in our own way.
