Curling up on the couch with your dog for a night in front of the TV is one of our favorite ways to spend a night in. But what about if you feel like heading out for the evening?

Well, have you ever considered treating your Peke-a-Tese to a night at the movies? Drive-in movies are a nostalgic experience for many of us, but the best part is that you can bring your pooch along to enjoy a night in front of the silver screen with you.

Here's how to enjoy a paw-some night at the drive-in with your canine companion by your side.

Step
1
Choose your film
If there's a drive-in movie theater near you, check out what's currently showing and what's coming soon. Find a film you and your dog will both enjoy — something with a pet theme, perhaps? — and choose what time you'll head along to watch. Remember to pack a few snacks for you and your pooch, something to drink (water for your pet), and maybe a blanket if they need to stay warm.

Enjoy!
Now all that's left to do is find your spot, get out your snacks and then sit back, relax, and enjoy the movie. Your dog will love the opportunity to cuddle up next to you and watch the screen, and they'll also be happy if you take the time to explain what's happening in the movie. As far as easy pet-friendly outings go, this one is hard to beat.

If your dog regularly sleeps on your bed or in your room, they'll get to enjoy this grrr-eat activity every single night. But if your Peke-a-Tese sleeps somewhere else, for example in the living room, this is a special treat they'll absolutely love.

When you invite your dog to sleep on your room for the night, they'll relish the opportunity to simply be close to you and at the heart of everything that's happening in the home. You might also find it quite reassuring to have your furry friend within arm's reach, so this is one activity you'll both love.

Step
1
Choose your dog's sleeping spot
The biggest question you'll need to answer when planning your doggy sleepover is this: will your dog be sleeping on their own bed on the floor, or snuggling up in your bed with you? This decision is entirely up to you, but whichever option you choose, make sure your pet will be comfortable and warm all night long.
Step
2
Settle in
Now it's time to settle in for the night and make yourselves nice and cozy. You might want to recreate the sleepovers you had with your friends when you were a kid and sit up half the night telling stories, or you might prefer to just snuggle up and enjoy watching your canine companion drift peacefully off to sleep.

You know just how relaxing it can be when you're on the receiving end of a good massage, but did you know that your dog can enjoy a gentle massage just as much as you can? A massage can help soothe aching muscles, relieve stress, and simply help your pooch relax, and it's a wonderful way for you and your dog to develop a stronger bond.

Even better, it's simple to do in the comfort of your own home and in any weather, so it's a paw-some activity for any time of year. Here's how to treat your pooch to a relaxing massage.

Step
1
Time to relax
You'll need to pick your time carefully when giving your Peke-a-Tese a massage. If your pet is feeling playful and energetic, wait until they're in a more sedate mood and more likely to stay still and calm. When the right time arrives, encourage your dog to lie down and relax — a treat, praise, or even just a pat could help with this.
Step
2
Let the massage begin
There's plenty of information online about how to give your dog a massage, or you could also ask a local animal massage therapist in your area for tips and advice. The main thing to remember is to be gentle and take it easy, and never to apply too much pressure. You'll be able to tell from your dog's body language whether you've got the magic touch — some dogs will even fall asleep in the middle of a massage session!

Conclusion

The Peke-a-Tese is a people-loving breed and one that will return ten times over all the love and attention you send their way.
