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.

4. Pet Educational Themes Of The Month

There are quite a few interesting topics you can talk about for October. Consider exploring one, two, or all of them if you prefer!

  • Walk Your Pet Month: Talk about the benefits of walking your dog, how often you should walk your dog per week & how long, the best leashes/harnesses. Lots of options here… and don’t forget to mention your OWN dog walking services at the bottom as a call to action 😉
  • National Train Your Dog Month: You can write or discuss how to know if you need a trainer and/or how to choose a trainer. If you have relationships with dog trainers in town, you can compile a resource list. OR if you offer dog training, be sure to mention it!
  • Adopt-A-Rescued Bird Month: This one is a little more obscure, but can still be relevant if you service (or want to service) exotic pets. Consider writing about the benefits of adopting a rescued bird, things to know before adopting a bird, etc.

1. Holidays – Halloween!

As I mentioned earlier, Halloween is one of the best holidays for marketing your pet business. People absolutely love to see dogs, cats, and other furry critters dressed up in spooky costumes. Alternatively, many people aren’t aware of the dangers that chocolate and candy can pose to our fur-babies, so Halloween can be a great time for teaching. Here are some blog or video ideas around Halloween:

  • Should I Take My Dog Trick Or Treating With Me On Halloween?
  • Top 10 Spookiest Costumes For Your Dog On Halloween
  • What Happens If My Dog Eats Chocolate On Halloween?
  • How To Reduce My Dog’s Doorbell Anxiety On Halloween

The list goes on and on!

 

2. It’s Starting To Feel A Lot Like Fall

Weather is a great topic to write or talk about, because many pet owners are not too sure how to care for their pets when the weather changes. Since October is typically cold and windy, you can write some blogs  (or make videos) educating your clients on how they can care for their pets during the Autumn Season:

  • What Should I Do About My Dog’s Fall Allergies?
  • Can Pumpkin Be Harmful For My Dog?
  • Is It Safe To Walk My Dog At Night?
  • What Should I Do If My Dog Gets Fleas/Ticks?

These are just a few ideas, but if you think on it a little while I am sure you’ll come up with more interesting questions worth answering! If you have a good question, research it and then blog about it!

3. Fall Games & Activities

Try searching the Internet for games that dogs and their owners can play outside, such as hide-n-go seek with a treat. Compile a list! You can even write or talk about the best hiking trails in your area, outdoor pet-friendly cafe’s, or dog parks. The list is truly endless.
