Here are some fantastic ideas on how to include your pet in the Chinese new year celebrations. 🎊
Dress to Impress
Blue and green are the lucky colors to wear in 2023 but you could also dress up your pup in a special “Lucky Red” collar - Red is a lucky color for the Chinese New Year.
Have A Puppy Paw-ty!
Decorate your house in shades of red lanterns and golden dragons and Invite over your dogs besties. You could even play “Lucky Dogs” - a pet version of hide-and-seek. Hide Wufers treats around the house and see if your guests can find them all.
It's Not A Real Celebration Without Snacks

Skip Bath Day
Chinese tradition states it’s bad luck to clean on Chinese New Year, if you do, you're washing away all your luck for the year ahead. Treat your dog by skipping bathtime and doing something fun instead like an extra hour of catch at the park.

Finally, plan a fun activity for your pup. You can take them for a walk or a hike, or you can even set up an obstacle course in your backyard. Make sure to include plenty of toys and treats so your pup is entertained throughout the day.
No matter how you choose to celebrate, make sure to give your pup plenty of hugs and snuggles throughout the night. After all, your pup is a part of the family and they deserve to be celebrated.
