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!

EXCELLENT SEAT COVER

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.

My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.
