5 Things To Do With Your Dog This Easter

Updated: May 10, 2019

Easter is fast approaching and here at WildPaws HQ we're getting all egg-cited! We're sure you're already aware that dogs can't eat chocolate but that doesn't mean they have to miss out this Easter. There are plenty of ways that your dog can join in on the fun - plus, they can even get their very own Easter egg! Read on to find out how to make your pup's Easter that egg-stra bit special...


1) Treat Them

Easter and treats go paw in paw and we all deserve to indulge a little at Easter. Treat your pup to something egg-stra special with these cracking treats from Hunter and Hound - so good they'll be b(egg)ing for them...

Hunter and Hound have lots of great seasonal treats to choose from including carob eggs, Easter bunny lollipops and Spring donuts. If you haven't already heard of this wonderful business then you need to check them out!


All of their products are natural, organic and healthy as well as extremely tasty. They sell a wide range of quality treats for dogs, horses and even rabbits - so now the Easter bunny can enjoy a treat too! Our resident buns, Miles & Lily, were over the moon when they heard they were going to be getting a delicious Easter treat.


The Easter products are still available to buy on their website, do be sure to check if there's still time for Easter delivery before purchasing to avoid disappointment. If you're anything like us then you'll probably want to order something anyway, just look how adorable their treats are...


2) Enjoy an Easter Dinner

Easter's the perfect time to get together and enjoy a lovely home cooked meal as a family. Dogs are family too so why would we leave them out?! Roasting up a nice lamb joint? Your pup can enjoy their very own spring lamb too with these tasty goodies from Naturo.

There are several lamb recipes to choose from including mouthwatering treats. Their Lamb & Rice Bones are gluten free and nice and crunchy - perfect for your pup's teeth! They are made using lamb's liver, linseed and salmon oil - so good they'll be doing tricks for them...


All of Naturo's recipes are made at their farm in Ireland and are all high quality and natural. If you're a fan of our blog then you'll already know that Wilbur & Paisley gave the paws up to their new Chef's Selection range earlier in the year. If you haven't read the blog yet then you can do so here. Believe us, their products are so good they'll be dreaming about them...


3) Do an Easter Egg Hunt

There's nothing like a good old-fashioned Easter egg hunt and we've got a great way for your pups to join in too! Get yourself a pack of fillable plastic eggs and pop their favourite treat inside...

All you need to do then is hide them around your garden and let your pup's nose do all the work! It's great for mental stimulation and bound to get those tails wagging.


These handy eggs are available to buy online as well as at your local supermarket. We bought a large 10 pack from Sainsbury's - the perfect size for the Lamb & Rice Bones. The eggs seal up nice and tight and even have a little hole at the top so the pups can sniff their tasty treats out...


4) Go on an Adventure

There's nothing like grabbing your dog's lead, some walking boots and stepping out the front door ready to set off on a new adventure. Us dog owners often treat dog walks as if they're a chore. We get stuck in a routine taking our dogs to the same places every week - forgetting that there's a whole world out there to explore! This Easter, why not go in search of a new walk?

There are so many great places to discover across the country from woodland walks and rural rambles to strolls in the city. We're always keen to discover new places to take Wilbur & Paisley on adventures - both near and far. We often check out the National Trust website for nearby dog friendly walks, so if you're struggling for inspiration then look on their site for great places to discover. We'll also be adding more of our favourite places to visit to our Dog Friendly Directory soon!


Going on new adventures not only makes the walks more fun for us but the new sights and smells are great for mental stimulation to keep your dog happy and healthy...and what could be more important?


5) Take a Day Trip to the Beach

Everybody loves a trip to the seaside - and our dogs are no different! With all that beach to run around on, the sea to splash in and definitely not forgetting the fish and chips - it's the perfect place to take them this Easter weekend...

Whether you're just 5 minutes or hours away from your nearest beach, it's always bound to be a fun day out for the whole family! Pack up a picnic, a blanket and their favourite ball and head off to the coast.


Do be sure to check if the beach is dog friendly before you set off. There are many that only allow dogs out of the summer season or on designated parts of the beach. If you're unsure, the local council's website will list more details on their rules.


If you're local to us in West Kent, Whitstable is just an hour away and dogs are allowed on the beach all year round! There's a seaside shack called The Forge which sells oysters, fish and chips and local beer - the perfect end to a day at the seaside! Plus, there's a dog friendly pub called The Old Neptune on the beach. You're allowed to take your drink out on the beach front too - so you can sit and enjoy a refreshing pint while the pups have a play!


If the beach is that little bit too far for you then how about booking an Easter break near the coast? You've got four days off to enjoy with them, so make the most of it!


We hope you enjoyed reading our blog and learned of some egg-citing things to do with your dog this Easter. Whatever you do with them, we're sure they're going to love it! Please do send us some of your Easter pictures here, we'd love to see what the Easter bunny left them...

Love, nose licks & waggy tails,
