5 ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your dog:
1. Stop By The Groomer’s/Spa
Everyone deserves to be pampered, especially on Valentine’s Days. Treat your dog to a grooming session with his favorite groomer. Maybe even a puppy pedicure to celebrate Valentine’s Day. And, while your dog is being pampered at the groomer, spoil yourself at the closest spa with a relaxing massage, a manicure or a pedicure. Don’t forget to take before and after selfies that you can share with friends on social media.
2. Go Toy Shopping To Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Your Dog
Give your best friend something to remember this Valentine’s Day. Head to the pet store for toy shopping. Let your pup browse the different toys and choose his favorite. Maybe you’ll even want to buy him a few healthy treats, too. Or, if he’s just been groomed, maybe now is the time to get him a stunning new collar and leash. Finally, if you’re in a neighborhood with pet-friendly shops, be sure to carve some time to buy a Valentine’s Day treat for yourself.
3. Enjoy A Quiet Lunch Or Dinner At A Dog-Friendly Restaurant
Most neighborhoods have dog-friendly restaurants. Does yours? If it does, what better way to toast Valentine’s Day than with a quiet lunch or dinner at a dog-friendly restaurant? Bring along some of your dog’s favorite food and treats so he will enjoy the meal just as much as you do.
4. Embark On A Long Stroll
You and your dog have enjoyed some pampering, indulged in a few new toys, and left the dog-friendly restaurant with a full stomach. What’s better than indulging in a long, relaxing stroll after a delicious meal? Whether you’ll be walking down snow-covered sidewalks or along sun-drenched streets, you and your dog will be able to deepen your bond even further.
5. Watch A Dog-Themed Movie To Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Your Dog
End the day by snuggling on the couch with your pooch and turning on a dog-themed movie. Reminisce with Lassie or Benji. Shoot for the stars with Air Bud. Or, fall in love with 101 Dalmatians. You probably want to avoid dog movies – such as Old Yeller – with a sad ending. After all, who wants to cry on Valentine’s Day?
Or, if your pup is pooped at the end of the day, he probably just wants to curl up and go to sleep while you watch your favorite film. After all, you’re spending time together and that’s what matters most on Valentine’s Day.
If you are going to be whisked away from home on Valentine’s Day celebrating with your significant, consider giving your pooch a visit with a professional dog walker as his Valentine’s Day gift.
