Our beloved pets have been a part of our lives and become one of our family members. They have been there to make us happy and comfort us whenever we need someone to be by our side. Pets do not only give peace and joy to our lives, but they touch our lives in many different ways. National Pet Month is celebrated in different parts of the world.

Things to do during National Pet Month
- Take lots of photos
Taking a snap of our beloved pet takes a lot of effort. Timing is everything. You have to be attentive to take the perfect shot of your pet. My advice is to let them roam around the place. Follow them around with your camera or phone then snap a photo or video enjoying their time with other pets. Print these photos and put them in a frame or maybe hang them on a thread in your room.
You can go to a pet-friendly cafe or restaurant in the city. It is a chance for you and your pet to enjoy. Have fun and experience new things together with your beloved pet.
- Try outdoor activities
Trying new things is not a bad idea. Your pet dog might want to go play in the park or maybe go to a water park to experience playing in the swimming pool. You can also try teaching your pet new tricks. It might be a good day to do it.
Many yoga studios have started to provide Doga Classes, in which you can practice yoga with your dog. You might also attempt yoga at home with your cat if you want to.
