Dog's Valentine's Day: how do you show them you really love them? Shower those you love in your life, including your four-legged friend.
As we move out of winter and the holiday season, we look towards Valentines Day, a day to cherish our loved ones, including our favorite furry friends.
Dogs are incredibly deserving of our attention on Valentines Day, seeing as how they provide us with unconditional love year round.
There are many ways to show our gratitude to our dogs this Valentines Day.
Unlike humans, however, dogs really do not have a lot of interests or passions, but that does not mean that we cannot give them some exceptional gifts to celebrate them for their unending friendship.
There are plenty of great gift ideas, and activities, for your dog that you can easily do.
7 Ways to Spend your Dog's Valentine's Day
Following are some perfect gift and activity ideas for you to do with your dog on Valentines Day.
Dogs give us so much throughout the year, so it is important to give back to them with some quality time and some gifts they will love.
1. Treat Baskets
Dogs love treats, so it makes perfect sense to reward them with some delicious snacks on Valentine’s Day.
You can easily assemble a Valentine’s Day treat basket with your dog’s favorite items!
Simply grab a basket or other preferred container and lay in a patterned towel or blanket.
From there, grab a variety of your dog’s favorite treats and layer them in the basket.
You can add in a few other items, such as a new chew toy for them to play with as well.
Try to make the basket accessible for your dog so they get the luxury of grabbing items straight from it, rather than having to get them from you.
2. Fancy Dinner
Truthfully, dinner time for dogs is a rather bland experience. Night after night, dogs eat the same kibble out of the same bowl.
While they will not complain, it might be nice to treat them to an uncommon experience every once in a while.
From there, consider allowing them to eat in a more public space, such as the living room with you.
You might even opt for some premium dog food or wet food to make the meal extra special.
Of course, a dinner like this could always use a treat or two to finish it off.
3. Car Rides & Walks
Aside from the more food oriented aspects of life, dogs love adventuring outdoors.
With Valentine’s Day being in between winter and spring, your climate might be nice enough to take your dog for a walk.
Consider finding a trail or path that you and your dog have not walked before to give them a brand new experience.
Your dog will love all the fresh sights, sounds, and smells for them to discover.
If weather is an issue, you might also consider taking your dog for a car ride around the block.
Even something as mundane as an aimless car ride can mean so much to your dog, and it is incredibly easy to do!
4. A Day At The Park
In the same vein as a walk or car ride, dogs love playing at the park as well.
Treating your dog to a day at the park, whether a dog park or traditional park, can be an incredible experience for both of you.
There are all kinds of things to do with your dog at the park, from games to walks and perhaps even sharing a picnic together!
Dog parks are the perfect place to present a new toy or some treats to your dog for their enjoyment.
With Valentine’s Day, a trip to the park can make it extra special for you and your dog.
5. Stylish New Accessories
Just like humans love getting new clothes and accessories, many dogs love looking their best as well. Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to present your dog with a fancy new collar, harness, or leash.
Further, you might even want to give them a new coat or other top to wear outside.
6. Evening Cuddle Time
Dogs typically have simple desires, and sometimes the best gift that you can give them is yourself.
There is nothing that a dog loves more than getting close to their owners, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to do just that.
Consider putting on a relaxing show or movie and inviting your dog up onto the couch to share in some quality cuddle time, it will make your dog ecstatic!
7. Bedtime In A Human Bed
If your dog is not allowed to sleep on your bed, it can be a welcoming experience to allow them to sleep with you for a night.
Dogs are pack animals and love nothing better than to get close to us humans, so it can be a fantastic event for them to be allowed on your bed!
Of course, this same gift applies to any piece of furniture, such as the couch or a chair.
Loosening your dog’s restrictions if only for one night can really go a long way to making them happy.
You can easily combine these gift ideas for the ultimate Valentine’s Day experience for your dog.
No matter what you decide to do, your dog will love the attention that they will receive with any of these gifts.
Dogs give us constant love and attention, and what better day to reciprocate than Valentine’s Day?
It is always a great idea to show our favorite canine companions some love and attention, but perhaps some days we should show even more.
There are many great gift ideas that are sure to please your dog.
From treats to trips and everything in between, this list has everything you need to make your dog’s Valentine’s Day special.
