It’s been a long time coming, but finally, the dog moms of the world are recognized with their own special day, National Dog Mom’s Day! Created by Dig (the dog person’s dating app), the holiday was founded last year “to thank dog moms, foster dog moms and future dog moms for all of the love they give to pups.”

 

Woof! Just the Facts Mom!

A recent revealed some interesting facts about the dedication of dog moms (in case you didn’t already know it!):

  • 3 out of 4 female pet owners consider themselves “dog moms”
  • 24% have missed worked to be home with a sick K9
  • 62% said they take dozens of photos of their dogs
  • 45% refer to their canine as their “fur baby” or “fur kid”
  • Baby boomers are most likely to refer to their dog as their “best friend”
  • 50% of dog moms happily talk about their dog when meeting other people!

 

Mother’s Day Celebrations where Fido is Welcome!

The Ballard Sunday Farmers Market in Seattle is dog-friendly so take a fun stroll and buy Mom a gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers and gourmet goodies!

If Mom loves the great outdoors, pack up a yummy picnic, leash up the dog and hit the dog-friendly trails in and around Seattle.

How about cruising with Mom and her K9 while eating ice cream on a Seattle Ferry Tour on Lake Union? Actually, the website says “pets ok” so if your cat loves water, the more the merrier!

Other Options We Promise Mom will Love!

While not all celebrations for Mom welcome her four-legged best friend, moms can still enjoy a wonderful day while Fido (or Felix) gets some extra attention of their own with their favorite Seattle dog walker or sitter (like us!).

From spa treatments to museums, ballroom dancing to bouldering, and private karaoke at the Rock Box and more, Seattle offers some of the best ideas and options to wow and impress Mom this year!

From tasty brunches and chocolate-tasting to truffle-making and comedy shows, it’s easy to make Mom feel like a rock star on this annual holiday!

 

Whether you’re a mom of a four-legged fur-kid or a two-legged human,

Happy Mother’s Day from Cosmic Home & Pet of Seattle!
