5 Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Your Pet

St. Patrick's Day Fun With Your Pet DogI Want To Catch A Leprechaun I want to catch a leprechaun. Maybe i'll set a trap. I wonder where they like to hide? I wish I had a map! I hope I find a leprechaun. Will he fit in my hand? I've heard they like gold and clovers, and come from Ireland. ~ Author unknown Here we are in the month of March, and even though Easter lands in March this year, I have to admit, that St. Paddy's day is one of my all time FAV holidays.... and not just because I am Irish! ;) Today, I would love to share 5 fun ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with your pet. Before we get into that, I think it's important to remember what St. Paddy's Day (as it is fondly nicknamed) is all about, and where it stemmed from.

So who's up for a bit of a history lesson?

According to Wikipedia  St. Patrick's Day - also referred to as - the Feast Of St. Patrick, is a religious/cultural celebration. It is of course held on the 17th of March each year. And the reason March 17th is the official date, is because it was on that day, that Saint Patrick passed away. Saint Patrick was of course, the Patron Saint of Ireland. In the early 17th century, March 17th was made an official Christian feast day. In short, the day basically commemorates the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, as well as Saint Patrick, celebrating the heritage of the Irish. Of course, in other parts of the world (including Ireland itself) sports everything green on March 17th. Everything from Shamrocks to clothing, and even funny green hats. While there are different claims as to why St. Paddy's day uses green colors to celebrate, one of the most popular reasons I have heard, is a lot to do with the fact of Ireland being nicknamed "The Emerald Isle." Makes sense.

Now, lets get to some fun ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with your Pet!

1. Baking!

Get creative, and find some natural, healthy recipes to create some yummy shamrock shaped dog or cat treats! Use an all natural dye to create the green look.

2. Take a Trip

Head out to your favorite local pet store, and purchase a green collar, bandanna, or even a cute green, leprechaun toy to help keep that St. Paddy's Day theme!

3. Beer!!

Right about now, you think i'm crazy. Why on earth would I be telling you to give your pets beer? Well, before you think I am a complete nut case, hear me out... did you know you can actually get pet safe beer? Of course, it is not an actual beer, and there is definitely NO alcohol in it. It is actually made from all natural ingredients, such as chicken and beef. And lets face it, St. Paddy's Day is most definitely associated with beer, so let your pet be part of the paw-ty!

4. Have a Paw-ty for Your Pet!

I know, it sounds silly. But how fun would it be to have a St. Paddy's celebration for your pets? Not only can it be fun for the pets, but fun for the humans too! A good reason for friends to get together, and for pets to socialize with one and other. You could even make it sort of a pot luck pet paw-ty! Have each guest bring their own healthy, St. Paddy's Day themed pet treats, decorate the house in green, be creative, and have fun with it!

5. DIY Project

I know so many people who love love LOVE creating their own DIY projects. Whether you fall into that category or not, why not try your hand at making a fun green bandanna for your pet! Everyone gets to feel a little Irish on St. Paddy's day, so make sure to include your pets when planning your holiday this year. Have fun, and let the luck o' the Irish take control of your day, and your creativity! We would love to hear from you! How do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
