Pamper Dog Moms This Mother’s Day

Posted by Erin Ballinger

Dogs love their (human) mothers. Mom makes sure Fido is clean, healthy and always fed on time. She gets up in the middle of the night to take her pups out, is a poop-scooping queen at the dog park, and gives the best snuggles. To show appreciation for all she does for her four-legged children, we’ve compiled a list of ways to spoil the special dog mom in your life this Mother’s Day or National Dog Mom's Day. Dog mamas, we’re sure your pup would want you to treat yourself to something amazing from this list, too!

Flowers From Fido

You can never go wrong when you give any mother a bouquet. We like the “a-DOG-able” floral arrangement options from 1-800-Flowers, but any floral arrangement will do. If you’d prefer to gift some seeds (like these for dog-friendly zinnias) to grow in her garden, we’re sure her pup can help with digging and the fertilizer. Check out our guide to the best flora to plant in your pet-friendly garden.

A Weekend at The Wilburton Destination Resort

The Wilburton Destination Resort, tucked in Vermont’s Green Mountains, has received many accolades including being one of BringFido’s most dog-friendly hotels in America. Surprise mom with an escape to this country retreat during the B&B’s Doggie Slumber Pawty celebrating the inn’s canine concierge, Jetson, for his 10th birthday. The event takes place May 17-19, 2024. Dog moms get to bring their pups for free as part of the slumber party package which includes admission to a welcome “pawty” with new furry friends on Friday night, a Saturday morning group dog stroll, an off-Broadway performance of “A Dog Story”, a doggie PJ party, and delicious Vermont country breakfasts all weekend.

Make reservations for an alfresco brunch at a dog-friendly restaurant near you this Mother’s Day. One outstanding example in Austin, TX, is Yappy Hour for Dog Moms at Upstairs at Caroline. Every Sunday, the bar offers all-day yappy hour drink specials and 25% off your bill just for bringing your dog. Dog mamas can munch on brunch tacos and sip on frozen cocktails like the Guava-rita while Fido eats tasty vittles like sweet potato fries and bacon bark from the pet menu. Bring your dog to this event on May 12, 2024, from 11 a.m. to midnight.
