If you can believe it, it’s already about time to celebrate Easter! It’s certainly a holiday to celebrate with family, and that includes our dogs, of course.
Easter baskets and bunnies may be mostly for human kids, but your dog doesn’t have to miss out on all the festivities. An egg hunt is a great way for your dog to use their nose, get some exercise, and enjoy the spring weather!
Hopefully the videos below will inspire you to have your very own doggy Easter egg hunt. Not only is it a great way to get your dogs involved in the holiday, it also makes for an extremely adorable video and photo opp.
Just remember to supervise the hunt and take away any plastic eggs before your dog can chew on them or swallow them. This is about fun, and a sudden trip to the vet isn’t fun for anyone.
Also, keep practicing your social distancing. It might be a good time to have a video chat to share your dog’s egg hunt, rather than invite humans to watch in person.
To help you get into the Easter spirit, check out these nine videos of dogs having their very own egg hunts!
1. Petee On The Hunt
There is no doubt about it, Petee is excited about this holiday. Petee’s mom already knows this, so she set up his very own personal Easter egg hunt.
Before Petee is even let outside, he knows exactly what’s about to happen and can’t contain himself, barking and wagging his tail. He’s one very smart dog because he’s able to find all the treats that mom hid for him.
From the looks of it, Petee definitely had a great Easter.
2. Dog Food Easter Eggs
This pet parent got creative and stuffed some plastic eggs with dog food. She then hid the eggs around the living room, putting them under the couch and even in Easter-themed stuffed animals.
Not only do the dogs get to join in on the fun, but they also get some mental stimulation as they think about how to get the treats out of the eggs.
3. Siberian Husky Egg Hunt
Watch out because here comes the pack!
These Siberian Huskies come running out of the house ready to put their dog noses to the test. Even though their human hides the eggs in some pretty sneaky places, it doesn’t seem to stop their noses.
In true Easter spirit, the dogs never fight with each other over the eggs they find, showing just how friendly of a pack they truly are!
4. Puppy Einstein
Koby is an Easter egg Einstein!
With lots of positive reinforcement training, Koby the puppy has learned to not only find the Easter Eggs, but bring them back to his human and place them inside the Easter Egg basket! He doesn’t just find the eggs, but actually puts them in the basket exactly as a person would do.
This genius — and adorable — Easter doggo definitely deserves a round of applause.
5. Labradors Sniff Out The Goods
This video features probably two of the happiest Labrador Retrievers you’ll ever see.
It starts off with an adorable picture of the dogs dressed up with bunny ears sitting in front of a basket, showing just how ready these pups are for the holiday. From the moment their human says “Do you want to do your Easter egg hunt,” these two don’t stop wagging their tails for one second.
You can tell they had a great time because, by the end, they’re two very sleepy pups.
6. Professional Egg Finder
Lacy is the most professional Easter egg finder around. If this were a competition, she’d undoubtedly win.
Not only does she start looking when she’s commanded to, but when she finds the eggs, she immediately looks to her human to let her know. She paws at her and directly brings the eggs to her.
Even the most hidden eggs are no problem for her nose. Lacy makes it look way too easy.
If she weren’t busy Easter egg hunting, there is no doubt that Lacy would make a great search and rescue dog!
7. Clean Up Pup
Jaspar isn’t your ordinary dog.
Most dogs specialize in making messes and not cleaning them up — that’s our job as humans, right? Well, Jaspar would disagree.
In fact, Jaspar actually helps clean up after play time, something we all wish our dogs would do. After completing his Easter egg hunt and finding all the treats, Jaspar sticks around and helps pick up the plastic eggs.
You might wish your dog was as neat as Jaspar!
8. Easter Egg Party
Prepare yourself for an eggs-tremely intense Easter egg party.
After laying out all the eggs, the pet parent lets all nine dogs — yes nine — come into the room. Opening the door is like releasing the flood gates. The dogs run into the room in a chaos of motion because nothing will keep them from their treats.
See for yourself the amazing dog party that follows.
9. Puppies’ First Easter Egg Hunt
Nothing says “adorable” like puppies hunting for Easter eggs.
If you or someone you know is having a down day, watch this video because it’ll make anyone feel a lot better. These Golden Retriever puppies are the epitome of cute trying to get their treats out of the eggs.
Since they’re only puppies, they need a little human assistance. But in the end, these sweet puppies succeed!
