Celebrate Love Your Pet Day the Baltimore Way

Feb 16, 2021

Our pets bring so much unconditional love and happiness into our lives. This Love Your Pet Day on February 20, let’s show our pets some love right back by spending the day celebrating them! Keep reading for our guide to some great local Baltimore businesses that can help you plan your special day together: 

Celebrating Our Four-Legged Anthem Family Members

We know your pets are just as much a part of your family as anyone else, so it’s important to us to provide a special, happy experience here at their Anthem House home! You can spend some quality time together at the dog run to get out those “zoomies.” After a romp in the park, our pet washing station is the paw-fect place to give your pet a bath.

Paw-some Local Businesses

To celebrate this special day, we’ve gathered some paw-sitively great pet shops and services in Baltimore, conveniently located right near your home at Anthem House. 

Shop Pet-Friendly Goodies

If you want to treat your pet to some special goodies for Love Your Pet Day, we’ve got you covered! Environmentally-conscious pet parents will love Howl’s selection of high-quality, all-natural and ethically sourced food and products. You can order from their storefront in Hampden ahead of time for safe social distancing shopping. You also don’t want to miss Happy Dog Baltimore, an all-in-one spot for your petcare needs located in Fell’s Point. They offer an array of services like dog walking, pet sitting and vet chauffeur appointments. Their adorable boutique has an expertly curated assortment of holistic, natural products for pets. 

Food For Your Fur-ever Friend

Your doggo deserves a true fine-dining experience. The Dog Chef makes gourmet cuisine for dogs, free of those fillers and artificial ingredients that traditional dog food is often full of. Founder Chef Kevyn Matthews has an inspiring philosophy: “If it’s not good enough for me to eat, I won’t feed it to my dog.” A tail-wag worthy fan favorite is the Sweet Potato Mini Cakes, a delightful cupcake-inspired treat made with organic sweet potato, honey and yogurt icing. So, make sure to stop by The Dog Chef in Mount Vernon for dog food that looks so good, you just might want to take a bite yourself! 

Great Grooming and Boarding

Your sweet pet can spend the holiday in style after a full-glam grooming session. Jack and Sally is a mobile pet spa that can come right outside of Anthem House  for an extra-convenient option. It was founded by Sierra Zurn, a professional dog groomer who was trained at the Baltimore School of Dog Grooming. She brings a luxurious, customized grooming experience to pets all around the city, including a bath, hair cut, nail trimming and more.

If your pet is the life of the paw-ty, he or she just might love spending the day at doggie day care and making some new pet pals! Woofs and Wags Baltimore in Brewer’s Hill was founded by pet lovers with over 25 years of experience in the pet care industry. They offer pet boarding, day care services, and a paw-sonalized experience that will help your pet pal feel right at home. Downtown Dog Resort is another great pet care option, located in nearby South Baltimore. First time dog daycare clients can even get a free half day of daycare, so it’s a great way to take a test drive of the service!
