Consider enrichment games
Our pets love to exercise their mind and body. It can also be a great process to involve the whole family in as well. Play helps your pet de-stress, provides the right level of challenge and mental agility as well as keeps them sharp and interested. It’s also great to incorporate play to help with obedience while having an awful lot of fun.
Puzzles and games all switch on the enthusiasm, fun and the problem solving skills with your pet.
Luckily, we have a great range of hardy, safe and reliable puzzles and toys that can help with pet enrichment available at vet hospital at Wahroonga, Fox Valley Animal Hospital. You can choose from a range of toys that do everything from support dental hygiene through to provide a peanut butter or paste reward.
You can also try some games at home with discarded items.
Using old plastic tumblers from camping days to hide a bit of carrot or some of your pet’s favourite food can provide endless amusement and joy.
You can also run treasure hunts in the backyard where they need to sniff treats from various locations. The same game can be repeated with a ball. You can even get your Pup Daddy competing against the pets for the ultimate prize!
Why are these great things to consider for Father’s Day?
- Testing the skills of your pet is fun for the whole family
- It helps keep your pets happy and healthy at the same time
- You can get Dad to match his skills against the pets in a treasure hunt!

Add something to the pet wardrobe
From cold weather to sunshine, nothing is more fun than getting dressed up with your pet. While considering Dad’s latest handkerchief or socks perhaps a little tired, there are some great things you can purchase to put the fun back into Father Fashion.
Think about jazzing up Dad’s favourite dog or making the kitty look super pretty with collars that last from Fox Valley Animal Hospital.
You can also choose from a range of outdoor and indoor jackets for your pet. Perhaps an all weather jacket for adventures is on the cards. Or if you are thinking of getting Dad a funky new set of pyjamas why not extend the fun with some for your pet as well- or even instead?
Why is pet fashion fun for Dads?
If your Dad loves his cat or dog, this is a sure-fire way to put a smile on his dial. At our vet hospital at Wahroonga, we have a range of comfy, practical, durable and stylish pet clothing and accessory options for all kinds of occasions.
Consider sponsoring an animal cause
If your Dad is someone that adores animals, then maybe the best gift of all is to help animals in need. For the Dad who truly has everything, being a part of the giving process can be a lovely reward.
Some of the ways you can tap into your giving side and make him feel special are:
- Giving to causes such as the RSPCA and WIRES in his name
- Sponsoring animal refuges in your Dad’s favourite country or favourite wild animal
- Considering a rescue pet adoption (check to make sure your family is prepared first!)
Why is giving to animal causes great for Dad?
By creating a positive experience for your pet loving Dad by giving to various animal causes in his name, you can create memories that last a lifetime. It also shows him you are compassionate, thoughtful and as much an animal lover as he is!
