Happy Valentine's Day
Posted on February 14 2020
It’s that time of the year again and your furry little friend can already sniff the love in the air! It’s Valentine's Day! Let’s not forget to show our love and appreciation to our dogs! Everyday when we come home from work, that cute four-legged friend is sooo excited to see us!
Sure, I get it, dogs can’t eat the same heart shaped chocolate boxes, or adore jewelry and flowers; but have no fear! We’ve put together a nice list of ideas to pamper, treat, and most importantly, to show your puppy just how much they mean to you!
1. Heart Shaped Treats!
Us humans aren’t the only ones that love heart shaped candies on Valentine’s Day! Lucky for you, there’s plenty of heart treats that can be found in your local pet stores. If you’re really trying to show your dog love though, put on that apron and fire up the oven for one of our favorite recipes!
2. Take Your Dog To The Dog Park!
We know it’s hard to let go of your baby, but they want to make friends too! Bring them to your local dog park to run around and be the friendly furballs they always are! There’s tons of health benefits to dog parks too: they’re a great source of exercise and fantastic socialization –– all which lead to better behaved pets!
3. A Spa Day!
Dogs may not appreciate a heart shaped box, but they sure will love a pampering day at the spa! Not only will your bundle of love feel happy, but there’s also a whole bunch of health benefits to a spa day: grooming maintains a healthy coat and skin; regular nail trims reinforce foot structure and posture; risks of infection are reduced; and your dog will simply look and smell great! Some spas even include massage therapy into their grooming packages –– a great method of enhancing blood circulation and stimulating muscle growth!
4. Get A New Toy!
Give the gift that keeps giving: a new favorite toy! We all know how cute the bond of a dog and its favorite toy is, so why not treat them with another squeaker? Take a visit to your local pet stores where you’ll find limited Valentine toys in stock!
5. Donate To Your Local Shelter!
Your dog already has the best gift — you. Other pups are still waiting for the day they can find a family that can celebrate Valentine’s Day with them, so they deserve love too! Local shelters provide incredible resources to your community and can always benefit from friendly donations!
