Furry fun for Family Day!

by | General Pet Care |

Whatever your plans are this Family Day, your furry friend would probably love to be a part of it! To help you out, here’s a list of activities that will be fun for everyone in your family – furry or otherwise.

Enjoying the great outdoors

When all the family is together, a great activity is heading outside! There are so many activities your companion animal would love to join you in outside: hiking, going for a walk, sledding, bird watching… and the list goes on! Keep an eye on your furry friend to make sure they aren’t getting too cold, and if they show signs of hypothermia, get them inside and warm right away. More information on hypothermia.

Cuddling up for a movie

If the outdoors isn’t what your family’s after on their day off, then why not cuddle up for a movie! Need movie inspiration? Check out our list of great animal movies for a cuddle-up kind of day.


Another great indoor activity is training! With the family all together, this can be a great time to train your dog, or teach them some tricks. Learn more about training here.

Games and enrichment

Games can be a great form of enrichment for your dog! Check out our Shelter Health Pro site for some fun ideas you can do from home.


Whatever you end up doing to mark the occasion, the Ontario SPCA wishes you a fun and safe Family Day!
