Fun and Games with Puppy Bowl XVII
While you may be sad to see football season come to a close, there is still the biggest game of the season left unplayed. As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs face off for Super Bowl LV there is a smaller and more friendly bowl gaming happening just a few clicks away. That’s right, Puppy Bowl XVII is set to air on February 7th at 2p ET/ 11a PT, where #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff match up to fumble, fight and tumble for touchdowns on discovery+ and Animal Planet. This year the O.G. dynamic duo, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg, are joining as hosts of PUPPY BOWL XVII.
If seeing all the action gets your pup antsy, there are a few ways to keep them busy with fun of their own.
Dress them Up: Get your dog a pet friendly jersey of your favorite team so they can feel like one of the team. If dressing up isn’t their thing then opt for a fun collar and leash or bandanna, so they can still rep your team with pride.
Play Ball: Before the big game starts, get your pup outside for a quick pick up game. Getting them tired before your friends and family show up for the celebrations is a great way to keep them calm during the excitement. The Planet Dog Orbee football is perfect for playing catch in the yard; it’s extra tough and is the perfect size for dogs.
Treats & Toys: Pick them up a few treats or cut up some extra veggies for them to munch on. The Busy Buddy Football Dog Toy is a great way to incorporate treats with a toy and will keep them busy for hours. Just make sure to keep an eye on your pet or set them up with a safe space. With all the food, fun, favors and open doors, they could get easily get into a little bit of trouble.
And don’t forget to tune into the Kitty Half-Time Show where lovable felines bounce around the Bay Area inspired arena. Watch them as they have a blast playing with lights, yarn, scratch posts, and of course CATNIP! All of the adorable players are from shelters around the country and are supervised by a vet on site as well as organizations like the Human Society. And maybe this year they will learn to not tackle teammates or kiss the opposing team instead of scoring goals!
