Paws and Patriotism: Dogs Getting Ready for Labor Day

As summer winds down and the promise of fall lingers in the air, one of my favorite holidays approaches – Labor Day! This cherished day is not just for humans – our furry friends can join in on the fun too. From tail-wagging barbecues to patriotic parades, here’s how you and your dog can get ready for a memorable Labor Day together.

1. Stylish Stars and Stripes

Nothing says “Labor Day” like a touch of red, white, and blue! Deck out your pup in a patriotic bandana or collar to show off their festive spirit. Whether you’re attending an event or just spending time in the backyard, your furry friend will be the center of attention.

Vera’s Posh Paws has two events coming up featuring vendors who sell pet related products! Come out and see if you can find something PAWtriotic for you and your furry friend to wear!

2. Safe and Sound Celebrations

While the celebrations can be exhilarating, it’s important to prioritize your dog’s safety. Keep in mind that loud noises such as crowds and fireworks can be distressing for many dogs. Create a cozy and secure space indoors where your dog can retreat if the festivities become overwhelming.

3. Tail-Wagging BBQs

Labor Day and barbecues go hand in hand, and your pup can enjoy the foodie excitement too! Prepare some dog-friendly treats or grill up a boneless chicken or turkey piece for your furry friend. Just make sure to avoid foods that can be harmful, such as onions, garlic, and grapes.

We make Posh Pops all summer long here at Vera’s! These are also a great idea to make and celebrate with your dog! You can use any of their favorite ingredients such as peanut butter, yogurt, bananas or real fruit! Just freeze into any mold and enjoy!

4. Splash and Play

If you’re lucky enough to have warm weather on Labor Day, consider busting out the slip-n-slide! Many dogs love a good splash in the water, and it’s a great way for them to beat the heat and enjoy some outdoor activity. Fill a kiddie pool or just play in the hose! If you have a water dog, they will love you for this.

5. Commemorative Photoshoot

Capture the essence of Labor Day with a themed photoshoot! Dress your dog in their best red, white, and blue ensemble, and snap some adorable photos to remember the day by. Be sure to tag Vera’s Posh Paws on Social Media. We love to see what your puppets are up to!

As you gear up for Labor Day festivities, remember that your dog’s happiness and comfort are top priorities. Whether you’re enjoying a backyard BBQ or marching in a parade, cherish the moments you share and the bond you’ve built with your furry companion.

If you have plans this labor day that aren’t considered pet friendly, leave your pup with us! We will have all kinds of fun planned for the holiday weekend! Be sure to schedule your boarding today as spots are limited and fit up fast for holidays!

This Labor Day, let the tail-wagging commence, the treats be savored, and the joy of togetherness be celebrated in all its patriotic glory. 🐾🇺🇸
