Spoil Your Pup: Dog Easter Basket Ideas

Spoil Your Pup: Dog Easter Basket Ideas

Easter is just around the corner, and it’s not just for humans to enjoy! Our furry friends deserve to enjoy the Easter festivities, too. 

If you’re a pet parent looking to spoil your pup this holiday, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s brainstorm some fantastic Easter basket ideas tailored specifically for dogs, keeping health and wellness in mind. 

Easter-themed Toys

Look for seasonal dog toys with Easter eggs, bunnies, flowers, or chicks. You can find plush toys, squeaky toys, balls, or even interactive toys that dispense treats.

Rotating new toys into the mix is a great way to keep your dog mentally and physically stimulated. If your dog seems to have gotten bored of their toys during the winter months, Easter is the perfect “excuse” to stock up for spring.  

Healthy Dog Treats

Fill your dog’s Easter basket with some yummy treats. You can include Easter-themed goodies such as bunny-shaped biscuits or carrot-flavored snacks.

As you choose treats for your dogs, keep digestive health top of mind. Here are a few tips: 

  • Avoid treats with lots of additives and fillers. These can upset your dog’s microbiome and cause digestive issues like diarrhea.  
  • Introduce new treats slowly. If your dog hasn’t had a specific treat or brand before, start with small amounts first to allow their digestive system to adjust. 
  • Moderation is key. Keep an eye on how many treats your dog is eating and keep overall caloric intake in mind. 

Easter Dog Apparel

Throw a pair of bunny ears, booties, bows, or other Easter-themed pet outfits in the basket. These items make for some adorable Easter family photos.

Keep an eye on your dog when they’re all dressed up to avoid any pet emergencies

  • Watch for signs of discomfort. Excessive itching, whining, or not wanting to move are common signs that your dog doesn’t like the clothes. 
  • Avoid Loose Parts: Avoid apparel with small, detachable parts like buttons, ribbons, or bows that your dog could chew on or swallow accidentally. 
  • Make sure it fits. Avoid any clothing or accessories that are too tight or restrict movement and airflow. It’s not worth it, even for a quick photo. 

A Festive Collar or Leash

Warm weather is right around the corner, so you may be thinking about spending more time outside with your dog. Consider getting a new collar or leash with a springtime design or pastel colors.

Hopefully, these new accessories will encourage more outdoor walks after being cooped up during the winter months. A steady exercise routine is key to your dog’s overall health, promoting strong muscles, joints, and cardiovascular health. It also helps keep everything moving, helping to prevent digestive issues like constipation.  

Grooming Supplies to Get Your Pup Spring-Ready

Springtime often means shedding season for many dogs. Help your pup look and feel their best by including grooming supplies in their Easter basket. 

Consider items such as a high-quality brush for grooming their coat, pet-safe shampoo for a refreshing bath, and nail clippers to keep their nails trimmed.

Personalized Items

Add a personalized touch with something personalized for your dog. We love custom dog tags or embroidered bandanas featuring your dog's name.

Travel Accessories

The start of spring means the busy travel season is right around the corner. If you have big spring break or summer plans, consider adding a few pet travel accessories to your dog’s Easter basket.

A collapsible pet water bowl, dog crate or carrier, a car harness, or seat cover are all great options for any future road trips or camping trips with your pup

Health Supplements

Take a proactive approach to your pet’s health by adding gut health supplements in their Easter basket. 

The connection between gut health and overall wellness has been studied since ancient times. Research continues to show connections between common dog health concerns and the microbiome. 

Maya Pet goes beyond typical pet probiotics with 10 Smart StrainsTM of good bacteria, specifically chosen to promote good digestive health and help boost your dog’s overall health as the seasons start to change.

Toy Basket

Save some money and minimize waste by having your dog’s Easter basket double as a permanent toy bin. Once the Easter holiday is over, you can use the container to organize and store all your pup’s toys. 

Egg Hunt

Easter egg hunts or even hiding the Easter baskets are common traditions for human family members, so let your pup join in the fun. Hide some pet-safe treats or toys around the house or yard for your dog to find, creating an Easter egg hunt just for them.
