Fun Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day with Your Dog

Every year on February 14th, people exchange candy, cards, and flowers with their special valentine. This year don’t only show your love to your significant other but also to your dog, who loves you unconditionally every day. Dogs teach us many things about life and ourselves with their kind heart and gentle spirit so, surprise your pooch with something special!

  • Watch a romantic movie or chick-flick together

There is nothing better than cuddling up with your dog eating popcorn and watching a movie on a Sunday night. Unfortunately, your dog can’t enjoy the extra buttery or salty popcorn so give them some treats to nibble on.


  • Make heart-shaped dog treats

You can find tons of simple dog treats that can be made with a couple of ingredients that you can find at home. If you don’t have heart-shaped cookie cutters or forms, then just grab a knife and cut it out and form it nicely with your hands. But don’t worry if they don’t look the way you thought it would because it doesn’t have to be fancy to get your dog’s tail wagging!


  • Take them on a long walk in the forest to let them connect with nature

Don’t rush your dog, let them take their time to smell and explore.


  • Dress your dog in Valentine’s Day colors

A red or pink harness, leash, or collar will look cute on your pooch! And if you bought or made any cute accessories, only put it on them if they feel comfortable.


  • Make a copy of your dog’s paw print

If you happen to have a scanner at home then scan your dog’s paw print with your handprint, frame it, and hang it on the wall. Or buy an ink pad but make sure it’s dog safe and remember to wipe your dog’s paws clean before they make their masterpiece.


  • Visit or donate to a shelter

All animals deserve love affection. If you cannot donate to a shelter then visit the animals to give them love and take them on a walk. They will surely appreciate it!


  • Have a themed photoshoot

You probably take millions of photos of your dog but having a themed photoshoot makes it special and fun. Use props like heart-shaped pillows or dress up in matching red outfits to make your photos look extra cute.


  • Get your dog a new toy

Even dogs can get bored doing the same things so surprise them with a new toy, perhaps our Duoplay ball?


  • Get them groomed

Grooming provides many benefits such as, maintaining a healthy coat, better hygiene and smell, and will keep them looking pretty!


These are just a couple of fun activities that you can do with your dog while staying safe. You don’t have to buy your dog fancy and expensive things, all you need to do is make them feel loved and spend quality time with them.
