St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to revel in the spirit of joy with your favorite furry friend. With a little planning and a lot of love, you can create lasting memories and strengthen the bond between you and your pup by celebrating St. Patrick’s Day together. So, get ready to put on your green gear, gather your doggy supplies, and enjoy a pawsitively perfect day with this tail-wagging guide to St. Patrick’s Day bliss for you and your dog. 

5 Ways To Make St. Patrick’s Day Unforgettable for Your Pup 

1. Attend a St. Patrick’s Day Parade with Your Good Luck Charm

 Many local communities across the United States celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with fun-filled, action-packed parades. Find out if there are any dog-friendly St. Patrick’s Day parades in your area that you and your good girl or boy can attend, or maybe even participate in! Some pet-friendly St. Patrick’s Day parades are even known for having special costume contests for pets. If that’s the case, dress up your pup with a green sweater, a shamrock-patterned bandana, and a green hat, or a green tutu and a green beaded necklace.  

Before you commit to attending a St. Patrick’s Day parade with your pup, remember that safety always comes first. So, make sure to use good dog mom and dog dad judgment. If you know that your dog doesn’t like loud noises, large groups, or is prone to anxiety, it’s probably best to skip the parade and celebrate in a different way. However, if you do have a social pupper that lives for these types of outings, then make sure to bring a leash, plenty of water, waste bags,  and your dog’s favorite Crumps’ Naturals treats to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for all!  

2. Throw A Patrick’s Day Pawty

No St. Patrick’s Day parades or events taking place where you live? Not a problem! Host a dog-friendly St. Patrick’s Day themed party and invite you and your dog’s closest friends. To make this celebration one to remember, decorate your space with green balloons and dog-friendly shamrocks, have a “Best Dressed Dog” competition, and serve a pup-safe St. Patrick’s Day cake. At the end of your St. Patrick’s Day Pawty, you can give out goody bags with dog-friendly green treats.

3. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at a Brewery Where Dogs are the Toast of the Town

If the weather is nice out (fingers crossed!) and you’re looking to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by having some adult beverages with friends, but don’t want to leave your doggo behind, lots of breweries are now both family and dog friendly. Look up local breweries near you that not only welcome dogs, but strongly encourage you and other pet parents to bring your furry family members! Breweries that have spacious outdoor areas – decks, patios, and lawns – for you and your pup to roam are ideal.  

To make the experience a positive one for your dog, remember that you need to be your dog’s advocate. If someone asks to pet your canine companion at the brewery and you know that he or she is not up for it, you can politely say, “I appreciate you asking, but not right now.” Also, remember that alcohol can be toxic to pets. Since some dogs do like the smell and flavor of alcohol and will drink it if given the chance, keep all alcoholic drinks out of your dog’s reach. And as a general rule, any time you’re out and about with your dog, keep an eye on your pup and remain attentive to his or her needs.  


4. Enjoy the Greenery on a Patrick’s Day Hike with Your Pup

Since green is the official color associated with St. Patrick’s Day (thanks to shamrocks and Ireland’s landscape), embark on a St. Patrick’s day hike with your four-legged family member. This outdoor adventure goes beyond the traditional celebrations and provides a refreshing alternative to crowded parties and parades that are usually very noisy. The fresh air, soothing sounds of nature, and beautiful greens will create a backdrop that’s not only visually stunning, but also invigorating for both you and your pup.  


5. Spoil Your Lucky Pup with DIY St. Patrick’s Day Treats

 What’s a celebration without tasty treats? To show your favorite four-legged family member how much you love and appreciate them this St. Patrick’s Day, make special dog-friendly DIY holiday themed treats. You can make St. Patrick’s Day inspired treats like green smoothie bowls, shamrock-shaped biscuits or pupcakes using pet-safe ingredients such as peanut butter, pumpkin, whole wheat flour, and spinach (in small quantities).
