Pet-Friendly Ideas for Labor Day

By 4Knines Staff. | Activities for Your Dog Dog Info
Labor Day with Dogs Labor Day is almost here! If you're planning a weekend getaway, don't forget about your four-legged family members. As you say goodbye to summer, here are some fun, pet-friendly ideas for Labor Day. Pet-friendly activities
  • Host a dog party. Who says play dates are just for kids!?! Inviting some of your neighbors and their pooches over for a get together could be the perfect way to finally introduce yourself and make new friends, or to enhance the friendships you've already established. Hang out in your yard and just play or take it a step further with dog activity stations, like designated areas for fetching, hula jumping, showing off, a chow down contest, etc. You could also serve dog-themed food for your human friends, like hot dogs and healthy dog cupcakes like these for the furry friends. Put together little doggie favor bags for each four-legged guest to take home and include things like treats, balls, grooming utensils or grooming gift certificates, squeak dolls, etc.
  • Take your pet to the beach or lake. Beachin' with your pooch can be a blast! Let them have one last summer hurrah with you by letting them "run barefoot in the sand." Here is a list of dog-friendly beaches across the U.S. If you really want to make a memorable beach entrance, dress your little guy or gal in a doggie swimsuit, like these from Poochie Heaven!
  • Go on a family hike. Take advantage of the warm weather while it's still around and let your dog run off all that energy with a hike. Look for a new trail to explore and bring along a scavenger hunt for you or your kids to do with your pet. Okay, so maybe your dog can't really help you mark things off your "find list," but he/she will pick up on your good mood and have fun playing along with you anyways!
Dog essentials
  • 4Knines seat cover. 4Knines specializes in selling durable, water-resistant, luxury dog seat covers for vehicles. The padded and quilted construction protects car seats while providing luxurious comfort for your pets.
  • Leash, collar and tags. No-brainer here. Don't leave home without a way to keep your pet safe and by your side when you're out and about. This "˜call my people' tag is cute and fun!
  • Tough toy. Bring along your pet's favorite toy. If you're looking for a durable, destruction-resistant toy, check out our recent blog post on tough toys.
  • Doggie water bottle. It's important for pets to stay hydrated too! This doggie water bottle makes it easier. Just remember to serve room temperature water. Ice water or water that is chilled or cold when dogs are hot after outdoor activities can lead to major health problems in your pooch.
Just for fun
  • Doggie bowtie. Why not snap some formal poses of your pet? Charlie Be Good's line of dog bowties is adorable.
  • Dog photo booth. Be silly and create a family photo booth! Photo booth portraits with DIY props are pretty popular now, and it's a great way to include your pet in on some laid-back, fun family photos.
Lastly, commemorate your special weekend with one of your favorite photographs of you and your pet, along with this adorable framed paw art tutorial. For more fun ideas, check out our Pinterest board! Happy Labor Day!

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

Split rear seat cover (no hammock) and Split cargo liner

I just purchased these items to use in an Infiniti QX30. The small cargo liner fits well with lots to tuck underneath - so good coverage if I need to drape it over the bumper for loading camping gear, etc. The regular split seat cover is just a tidge big, but with some tucking here and there it covers the seat well. Good quality and prompt service. I recommend this product.

My husband and I both have this cargo cover in our SUV's and I just bought the small for my mom for Mother's day, as she dog sits for us. We love them!

This product is amazing and so is the company. I was concerned it wouldn't fit my F350 Super Duty crew cab. I emailed them to ask and they responded really quick. I got the cover and it is everything they show it is & more. It fits perfect. I also bought the side covers for the doors in the back.
