As a gal who loves being a parent to her perfect pooch, you’re constantly on the lookout for new opportunities to flaunt your dog mom status. Parenting a puppy is no small feat, and you have a right to show the world just how much you care for your dog. Luckily, there are a number of easy ways to let everyone know you’re the proud momma of one fantastic four-legged friend.
Dress Like a Dog Mom
An easy way to show people that you’re a dog mom? Wearing clothing that says just that! Try on a stylish sweatshirt that says “dog mom” to let everyone that you pass on your daily walks know that you and your furry friend are inseparable. Feel free to get a few items of “dog mom” clothing and mix and match different colors and styles: keep it understated with a simple black pullover, or take a walk on the wild side with a tie dye pattern. If you’re a gal who’s more into accessorizing, you can easily get your pet’s name embroidered on a hat as well. There are also lots of cute dog-shaped earrings out there to choose from if you want to dress up while showcasing your dog mom pride. Regardless of what styles you choose, being a dog mom is a lifestyle, and you know you wear it well!
Bark About Them On Social Media
One of the greatest ways to showcase your life as a dog mom is to post about it online. Post pictures and videos of your dog living its best life across all your social media accounts. Plus, it’s no secret that people love some good animal content on their feed. By posting about your pup, you get to share your favorite moments with your dog with others, and they get a fun, furry boost of joy on their feed. It’s a win-win!
You can also put the phrase “dog mom” in your bio so fellow pet parents who click on your page will know they’ve found another animal lover to talk about all things pet parenting with. Additionally, you can search for dog mom groups online on sites like Facebook and Reddit to further connect with other dog mommas out there! You might even find new dog park besties, for both you and your pup.
Pack Them Up for an Adventure
We know you want to take your pup with you wherever you go, and it turns out that you can: with a dog backpack! There are a number of perfect backpacks suited specifically for carrying your dog on all your outdoor adventures, whether you’re making a quick trip to the farmer’s market or headed out on a sweaty morning hike. Sure, you could just walk them on a leash by your side, but why not treat your pup to a fun free ride that’s bound to turn heads with looks of doggy amazement wherever you go. Just be mindful of your dog’s size: while perfect for smaller to mid-size pups, you don’t wanna break your back trying to carry your Labrador around.
Celebrate Your Doggo’s Birthday
Show your fur baby some extra love this year by throwing them a birthday bash! It’s a perfect excuse to invite all your pup’s favorite pals from the dog park over for a good old run around the back yard and some dog-themed party games. And what would any great birthday party be without cake? Stop by a local dog bakery to pick up a dog-friendly cake for your pooch and its friends to enjoy. Customize your dog’s cake with sayings like “Happy Birthday,” or “Happy Gotcha Day,” if you’re a proud adoptee dog mom. Your dog might not be able to thank you with words after the party, but you’ll definitely know they’re grateful for all the licks and cuddles they’ll give you that day.
Taking on the responsibilities of a dog mom is no walk in the park (well, apart from all the literal walks in the park), but above all, it’s an incredibly rewarding experience. There’s nothing quite like opening your heart up to a dog and making it a part of your own family. While you show your dog love every single day by taking care of it, there are many ways to express how much you adore being a dog mom to others. How you choose to celebrate being a dog mom is up to you: whether it be through dog mom-focused clothing, posting pics of your pooch’s best moments on the ‘gram, taking them with you on adventures, or celebrating their birthday. Regardless, your love for your dog runs deep, and it’s a beautiful thing to be able to share it with friends, family, and the rest of the world. How do you show off your dog mom pride?
