How to include your pets in Thanksgiving fun (and keep them busy)!

Because pets are undeniably part of the family.

Hey Global Pet Foods fam!

Ru here, resident cat queen at Global Pet Foods St. John’s. I’m here today to share with you how you can include your pets in the Thanksgiving fun (and keep them busy while you have some fun of your own!).

1. Turkey dinner (with all the fixings)

When the turkey comes out of the oven, it’s hard to resist. Keep the paws off the table with Iron Will Raw Turkey food for dogs or cats! Made of yummy turkey and vegetables, your pet won’t know the difference between their meal and yours — it’s just as tasty and nutritious!

Rather keep them busy a bit longer? Try a natural chew like Redbarn Collagen Stick dog treats: super tough, long-lasting chews made from beef collagen that are a safer and healthier alternative to rawhide chews.

“I just love getting these treats for my buddy Dodger. They’re healthy, safe, and keep him occupied for hours — which is great for long drives home to Clarenville.”

2. #PSL

Who doesn’t love a pumpkin spice latte this time of year?

Your furry friends can enjoy one right by your side with ‘pumpkin spice’ Primal Raw Goat Milk! Cats and dogs alike love lapping this up, and you can even freeze it for ice cream for an extra special treat.

3. The Big Game

October means football across Canada! If your pups get a little too riled up when your team scores, they may just need some fun of their own.

Keep them entertained for hours with the SodaPup Corn on the Cob Treat Dispenser. Dogs love to chew on this durable treat dispensing toy and it can be popped in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

“Dodger loves his corn treat dispenser! He chews on it for hours and won’t put it down. We definitely can’t imagine a more beautiful thing!”

4. Turkey trot!

Many families like to burn off that big Thanksgiving dinner with a walk around Quidi Vidi or Bowring Park after supper. It’s the perfect activity to include your four-legged friends, and you can keep them safe with the Ruffwear Flagline Dog Harness! This harness is light and flexible, and it’ll keep them comfortable all walk long, no matter the terrain.

5. Time for a food coma

We all know what comes after a big dinner and a big walk: a food coma on the couch!

Give your pets their own place to curl up and relax on a Be One Breed Diamond Pet Bed! This pillow has a unique design that will reduce stress on your pet’s joints, making it the perfect place for them to rest after a long day. Plus, the cover is easily removable and washable, making it easy to clean (especially if they drip any of that #PSL on it!).
