Rained-In With Your Pets? We've Got you Covered.

If you, like us, live in a country that is often rainy and cold, then we have a few ideas for how you and your pets can have fun together, indoors. How do movies, baking, photoshoots and Blanket forts sound? 

Our Favourite Pet Films 

Hachi: A Dog’s Tale

An American adaptation of the Japanese film Hachikō Monogatari, the story follows Richard Gere as a professor who makes an unbreakable bond with a gorgeous stray Akita dog. If it doesn’t bring you unspeakable joy and tears which flood the living room, then we don’t think you have watched it properly… 

Isle of Dogs

We’re talking a Wes Anderson animation of pure aesthetic and emotional delight. Arguably one of his best films, Anderson follows a dystopian community of dogs banished to an island of rubbish. It is sad in parts, don’t get us wrong, but it’s equally a beautiful tale of the relationship between dog and man, and the role that dogs have in a dictatorial society. It’s a deep one, we love it. 

See Spot Run

Featuring a  gang, an FBI trained bullmastif and a mailman, See Spot Run is one of those irreverent comedies which will have you, your mum, your children and doggies laughing hysterically and also on the edge of your seat. 

 Keanu

Following on in the gangster-pet genre, we haven’t forgotten about your kitty. Keanu was created by and features the genius that is Key and Peele, as well as probably the cutest cat to ever exist. The story is about the lengths at which the duo will go in rescuing their kitten from a drug cartel. It’s exciting, funny and everything you want from a movie on a rainy day. 

How To Build The Perfect Pet Blanket Fort 

Is this what your pets look like on a cold day? Yeah. Ours too! Why not upscale? 
If you're a pet owner, you know that your animals can suffer from anxiety, especially during rainy periods when senses are heightened and loud noises are more common. There's no better way to calm your pets down by snuggling up as a family than in a homemade blanket fort.
Get your kids involved, get your granny in and prepare for a cosy day in a house made of cotton. You’re welcome. 

What you’ll need: 

  • Every blanket and cushion that you own - bedsheets work too. 
  • At least four chairs/upright pieces of furniture for construction
  • Fairy lights
  • Your pet beds and couch cushions for a comfy base
  • One of the above mentioned pet movies
