2. Winter Is Coming To A Close

If you haven’t already written about the cold and snowy weather last month, now you can! February is prime real estate to give your clients some helpful cold weather tips for their pets. You can also discuss how to get ready for Spring if you’re the proactive type 🙂 Here are some ideas…

  • Can snow salt hurt my dog’s paws?
  • Should I wipe my dog’s paws after walking in the snow?
  • How to walk my dog safely in the Winter months
  • (NUMBER) ways to get ready for Spring

Try to think about if you’ve ever had a question on how to care your dog during a certain situation. If you have, chances are somebody else has too… and then they Googled it! You want to answer relevant and engaging questions to drive traffic to your website. Being a resource is an effective way to set yourself apart from other companies in your area.

 

3. Winter Games & Activities

If you live somewhere that’s very cold, most of your clients are likely not taking their dog outside much during the Winter. It’s the perfect time to talk about indoor games and activities to keep pets active and engaged. Maybe February is a little warmer where you are and people are taking their dogs outside. In that case, you can talk about the best hiking trails, outdoor games, etc.

  • Pet Dental Health Month
  • Dog Training Education Month
  • National Cat Health Month
  • Responsible Pet Owners Month
  • Unchain a Dog Month

1. Holidays – Father’s Day

Just like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is another great holiday to market for. Tons of clients are fathers to both human kids and fur kids! It’s a perfect opportunity to great graphics of dads and their pets. You can also write a number of blogs or make videos on how to celebrate the holiday, gift ideas, and more. Other than Father’s Day, there aren’t really any other holidays in June. So make sure to take advantage of this one while you can! 🙂

 

2.  Officially The Start Of Summer!

Thinking about the season is another great way to think of unique and interesting blog/video ideas. June is really the month where everything starts to warm up, kids are getting out of school, and families are taking vacations.  A good place to start is to think about how the hot weather can affect dogs. Topics such as how to help your dog beat the heat, how to give your dog exercise when it’s too hot outside, or whether or not you should shave your dog’s coat for the summer all interesting, important issues that will grasp your reader’s attention

 

3. Summer Is About Fun!

When people think of Summer, they usually think about fun activities like swimming, camping, going on trips, and more. Write about it – but be sure to include the dog! So, you can gear your blogs/videos towards topics like activities to do with your dog in the water, top 10 camping sites for you and your dog, top 10 summer destinations for you and your dog. See where I’m going with this? Try to think about things you like to do in the Summertime, and then decide if a dog can be included in those. If so, blog or video about it!

 

4. Consider The Educational Topics Of The Month

June has some great educational awareness topics because it is:

  • Adopt-A-Cat Month
  • Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month
  • National Pet Preparedness Month

Take these and run with them. You can discuss topics like “how do know if adopting a cat is right for you,” “things to consider when adopting another pet,” and “how to make sure your pet is prepared for a natural disaster.” Again, these topics are not only informative, but they are interesting and important to pet owners.

I hope these June pet sitting blog or video 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. If you’re still not convinced, check out these blogs I wrote on Why Should I Blog For My Pet Sitting Business and Why You Should Care About Your Holiday Cover Profiles And Blogging.

1. Cash In On the Holidays – Mother’s Day & Memorial Day

Mother’s Day can be a great holiday to write or talk about because it’s a day female pet owners can think about how much they love being a mom to their furkid. You could talk about gifts for the dog/cat to give mom on Mother’s Day or even just simply talk about ways to celebrate the occasion. I would also take the opportunity to post some cute graphics of moms and their pets.

Memorial Day weekend can be one of the busiest weekends of the year for our industry. It’s the premiere time for people to hit the beach and kick off the start of Summer. There’s a bunch of different directions you can go with here but some ideas are ways to celebrate Memorial Day, traveling tips, discussing all of the pet care options available in your city, etc. Again – also take advantage of the holiday by hyping it up with your marketing! Encourage people to start thinking about pet care now while they’re finalizing their travel plans. Some simple graphics and “reminders” can go a long way to your Facebook following.

 

2. Goodbye Spring, Hello Summer!

Like I said above, Spring is quickly coming to end and Summer is ready to dig its heels in for the next few months. Blog or video about it! You can discuss whether or not it’s possible for a dog to get sunburned or have heatstroke (as well as how to prevent it!), when it’s TOO hot to walk your dog & how to protect their paws from the pavement, and how often it’s okay for a dog to go swimming. Seriously, there are tons of topics here – way too many to list. The next time you’re out pet sitting or walking a dog, make note of any challenges you have involving the weather and then blog or talk about it! I’ve found that the best blogs and videos come from personal experiences.

 

3. Talk About Summer Activities

Of course, the biggest outdoor activity summertime time is swimming. There’s lots of directions you can go with that topic like fun games to play in the pool with your dog, or you can branch out to games to play on the beach and games to play in the park. You could write/talk about 5-10 Summer pet-friendly hotspots in your town where pet owners can relax with their furry friend. Still on the Summer theme, you can write/talk about games to play when it’s too HOT to go outside as well as games to play with your dog when the weather is perfect outside.

 

4. Check Out The Educational Topics Of The Month

May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month as well as Chip Your Pet Month. So let’s get educational here. You could do a bit of research and write/talk about warning signs that your dog or cat has cancer, best practices to prevent cancer, what to do if your pet has cancer etc. Then with micro-chipping, you can talk about why it’s so important for your pet to get micro-chipped, what exactly micro-chipping is, where to take a lost dog to check if he’s micro-chipped, etc. Don’t be afraid to tie that topic into Memorial Day, since pets get frequently lost on holidays because of all the activity going on.
