Celebrate St. Patricks Day With Your Dog!

Paddy's Day!

Celebrate this year’s St. Patrick's Day with your four-legged best friend! Check out these top recipes and tips to get your woofers involved and make it a day to remember…

 

Emerald Isle Dog Smoothie Recipe

Although Guinness is the traditional drink of St. Patricks Day, it's not recommended for our pups! Instead, treat them to this delicious and healthy green smoothie for dogs. It's packed full of fruit and veg, meaning no sore heads in the morning AND you can even say cheers with your pooch and have a glass yourself!

Ingredients: 

  • A handful of spinach
  • 10 strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • Few splashes of water

Method:

  • Chop the ingredients into smaller chunks
  • Pop the ingredients along with the water into a blender or smoothie maker
  • Whiz it up and serve

If that seems like too much hassle, grab one of our Bottom Sniffer Dog Beers!

 

Paddy's Day Dog Treats Recipe

What's the one thing your dog loves (after you, obviously!)... TREATS! Make these super easy, low fat, scrumptious St. Paddy's Day themed dog treats to complete the day for your woof!

Ingredients: 

  • 450g of green beans
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees
  • Cut the green beans in half
  • Add the oil and green beans to a mixing bowl and toss to coat the beans
  • Evenly spread the beans on a baking paper-lined ovenproof dish
  • Oven the beans until crunchy (around 7 hours)
  • Ensure they are fully cooled before feeding to your dog

Green beans are full of important vitamins and minerals such as protein, iron, calcium, and vitamins B6, A, C, and K. Green beans are also full of fibre and are low in calories!

 

Arrnage A Pot Of Gold Dog Treat Hunt

Now's your chance to put those green bean dog treats to work! A 'find the treat' treasure hunt for your dog is the perfect game to keep your dog entertained. Dog's instinctively like to be given a 'job' to do, so this enriching 'find the treat' treasure hunt game will help keep your dog happy and alert. 

Hide the treats around the garden or the house at different heights so your dog has to get active! If your dog is new to the game, first hide some easy to find treats to help your dog understand the game, then hide some more challenging ones so they really need to work that snout to sniff them out!

The green bean dog treats are low fat and natural, so are perfect if your dog is on a diet or you don't want to over-feed. 

Dress You & Your Dog In Green

Dress in Green!

 

On St. Patrick's day, everyone is Irish – including dogs! A green handkerchief folded into a bandanna can be an easy and stylish way to help your dog show its Irish pride. Also, think of the photo opportunities... green smoothies in hand (and paw) some Irish Trad music on Spotify, chowing down on the Irish biscuits... a wonderful Paddy's day in your very own home with your pooch!
