With a pet-friendly Easter basket, your pup will stay occupied, and most important, be kept away from the kids’ chocolate! As always, be sure to supervise your pets whenever giving them new toys, treats, or apparel.

 

1. Choose your container

 

DO use an inexpensive container, pet bed, or bowl as your Easter “basket.”

 

DON’T use a container that your pet can chew or destroy, such as a straw basket.

 

2. Fill it up!

 

DO fill your pet’s Easter basket with spring-themed toys, apparel, or a new collar.

 

DO include delicious treats. We suggest trying our new Martha Stewart Pets® Treat Shop dog biscuits! Find them at your local PetSmart.

 

DON’T use artificial Easter grass as a filler; it can be harmful if ingested.

 

DON’T use plastic eggs to hide treats; they break easily and can harm your pet.

 

3. Personalize it

 

DO put your pet’s name on his or her basket. Download our free Pet Gift Tag Clip Art.

 

DON’T decorate your pet’s basket with anything he could bite off, especially flowers. Common flowers such as azaleas, carnations, hyacinths, hydrangeas, daffodils, daisies (some varieties), geraniums, lilies (some varieties), peonies, and tulips can be dangerous to your pet if ingested.
