Mother’s Day is on Sunday!
I was inspired by a post I saw on Pinterest awhile back, and came up with a way to make it dog friendly. I also thought it would be a cute little project to do with my regular doggie daycare clients to do for their moms, who do such a wonderful job taking care of them.
Most importantly, mom’s come in all types; whether you’re a human mom or a doggie mom, you’re loved and appreciated all the same.
Happy Mother’s Day, to all of those doggie moms’ out there.
Paw Print DIY
Tools needed for this project:
- Canvas, or anything else you’d like to do your paw print on. Something as simple as a piece of paper would even work
- Non toxic paint.
Be creative! For added flair, do your paw prints in more than one colour!
- Bin of water
- A cooperative dog.
Keep in mind, this isn’t supposed to be a traumatic experience for your dog. Don’t force your dog, if they’re not comfortable with it.
I found all of my supplies at the dollar store. I went with purple, as it’s one of my favourite colours.
I set everything up on the floor, so the dogs could check it out … sniff sniff sniff!
Lady even made sure the paint was non toxic (she didn’t actually eat it, don’t worry!)
Lady was ready to go! Stamping was easy with her, because she’s very relaxed with being handled. She enjoyed the extra attention
Checking out her beautiful art work ….
I think her mom is going to LOVE it!
And here are the completed pieces! Declan, Ducati and Lady had a fun afternoon at doggie daycare, and I hope the moms’ loved there special hand made gift.

We have Matilda the boxer staying with us this weekend. We took her down to see Seamus and go for a good run in the big park!
Matilda loved running around the big park with the other dogs.
She got to explore the park and really stretch her legs.
The other dogs loved chasing after Matilda and playing in the grass.
We will definitely be back to visit Seamus and go for runs in the park.
We took Logan out for a nice long walk today. He got to play in a bunch of different parks and school yards.
Logan even got to see the fireman testing their emergency equipment out.
And our last stop was a viewing of the outdoor sculptures at the AGO.
It was a fun day walking in the city with Logan!
The Springer Dog Exerciser allows your dog to go bicycling with you. You leash your dog to the Springer attachment that you mount to your bicycle and if your dog makes a sudden erratic movement the Springer Dog Exerciser absorbs much of the force keeping your bike from tipping over or changing your bikes path.
The Springer uses a low-mounted, heavy-duty steel spring to absorb up to 90% of the force of a dog’s unexpected tugs, allowing bike riders to keep their balance, while protecting their dogs from traffic, pedals, and wheels. In addition, the patented safety release frees the dog instantly if he gets caught around a tree or hydrant. Springer America also offers a dual spring allowing you to bicycle with two dogs attached.
