How To Host A Dog-Friendly Easter Egg Hunt

It’s time to release the hounds! You can take your dog on an Easter egg hunt with these tips. Put on those bunny ears and follow these tips.

Easter egg hunts are so much fun. This is the original geocache! It is also one of the few hunts where your dog is a persona non grata. It’s not because he eats everything before the kids can get to it. He really stinks when it comes to wearing a bonnet or carrying a basket. Chocolate is a big no-no for our good buddies, and Hershey Kiss can actually be the kiss of death if found in excess!

As pet parents, how can we ensure that all kids – human and furry – are included in these events? Why not organize a special hunt just for Rover and his pals? To get it right, follow these tips:

  1. Invite his off-leash park buddies, friends, and family pets to join the group activity.

  2. In order to ensure a good turnout, choose a date before Easter Sunday.

  3. You can tie in with a registered charity by charging a nominal entrance fee. Proceeds would go to a relevant charity.

  4. If you hide the treats too well, you’ll still be finding them next Thanksgiving, so be sure to vary the difficulty of your hiding places!

  5. Keep him out of the stash area so he can discover the treats on his own without being spied on. There is nothing better than a good hunt for a dog by nature!

Here are 7 fun things to do with your dog this summer

  1. As participants vie for the treats, make sure you have plenty of space so they can’t bump into one another.

  2. Make sure to give about 20 treats to each dog, and even though he doesn’t have to eat them all, make sure his meals that day are light so he doesn’t overeat.

  3. Replace the Cadbury crème eggs with hollow plastic ones that can be filled with a variety of treats. Here are a few examples: 1) Snacks and treats he loves

    b) Easter-themed dog treats, such as hot cross buns or carob Easter eggs

    The cheese chunks (c)

    d) Leftover roast beef, ham, or chicken cooked in the oven

    You should keep dogs on leash if you are worried that they might get too many treats, chew on the plastic eggs, or get overexcited. By doing so, you can keep track of their Easter gi

Remember to ensure each of your guests is supervised by their pet parent during the activity so the bounty can be opened and distributed (or saved for later). Praise each time a treat is found goes a long way in keeping the momentum high, and speaking of momentum… keep poop bags on hand.

If you’re holding your doggy eggs-travaganza in the same space where your kid’s chocolate egg hunt was held, don’t forget that kids don’t always find all their candy. Ensure all chocolate is scooped from the search zone by doing a quick sweep – because your pooch may not.
