17 ways to show your pet you ‘ruff’ them this Pet Appreciation Week

From a bird playground to a smart drinking fountain for dogs, this is the ulti-mutt gift list.
on 07 June 2021
Did you know: There are over 29 million pets Down Under, more than the country’s 25 million human inhabitants. In fact, Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world according to Animal Medicines Australia: More than 6 out of 10 Australian households own a pet, with dogs being the most popular (almost 40% of Aussie homes have one), followed by cats (27%) and fish (11%).

While pets are a handful sometimes, the challenges of last year have shown how invaluable their company can be. A 2020 study by pet-sitting service Pawshake reported that 97% of Australians feel their pet helped them survive the year, from easing their loneliness during lockdowns to motivating them to exercise.

So what better way to show your pet your gratitude than with a treat this World Pet Appreciation Week? Here, we share 17 special gifts to pam-purr your furry or feathered fam.
