It’s that time of the month again – no, not THAT time. It’s the end of the month where I give you, my hard working pet business owners, some blog topics and inspiration to help you pump out those blogs for your website! Hopefully these April pet sitting blog ideas will get the gears turning in your creative minds. Don’t forget, blogging is VERY important for your pet sitting business to help it rank on Google. So with that, let’s get started 🙂
4 April Pet Sitting Blog Ideas
1. Take Advantage Of The Holidays – Easter!
Holidays are the bread and butter of pet sitting businesses. People go out of town, make plans with family, etc. which requires them to find a pet sitter for their pets. So, why not blog about it? It not only gives your clients some fun reading material, but also reminds them that you are there for them. Talk about fun outings they can go on to celebrate Easter. Or you can talk about putting on pet-friendly Easter Egg hunts, fun dog-friendly Easter foods, etc. There are lots of options with this one!
2. Talk About The Changing Of Seasons
Ever hear the phrase, “April showers bring May flowers?” April is the perfect month to talk about Spring time and about rain. You can discuss walking dogs in the rain, fun activities to with your dog on a rainy day, how to get rid of the “wet dog” smell etc. You can also talk about grooming tips, allergies, shedding, and other Springtime changes in relation to dogs.
In the Spring time, people’s gardens are coming back as well. And I bet you know more than a few dogs that would just love to get in those gardens and cause trouble. Write about it, and how to prevent it! You can also talk about how to keep a “dog-friendly” garden with safe plants as well.
3. It’s Nice Outside – Discuss Outdoor Activities!
Tons of options here for April pet sitting blog ideas as well. In the Spring, your town is getting in gear with outdoor activities and festivities. This is a great time to talk about community events and things that are going on around town. You can also list what are some great parks to take your dog as well as hiking trails or lakes. Discuss outdoor games to play with your dog like fetch or tag. If you live somewhere with lots of water and swimming, you can write about water games to play with a dog too.
4. Don’t Forget About The Topics Of The Month
April is “National Heartworm Awareness Month”as well as “National Pet First Aid Awareness Month.” These are two fantastic educational topics that you can really speak about. If you have any connections with a veterinarian, ask to quote them. This will give you more credibility as well as help build your relationship with that vet. If you want to look ahead and see what the other topics of the month are, be sure to check out this website.
I hope these April pet sitting blog ideas are helpful to you and are able to give you some inspiration. If you are a pet sitting business that DOESN’T have a blog – it’s never too late to start.
