Looking for some things you can do for your dog this Valentine’s Day?
You should be!
Dogs bless our lives each day with unconditional love, so it’s only fitting that we celebrate the day of love with them.
Here are 11 different ways you can surprise your furpal this year.
11 Valentine’s Ideas for Him: Your Dog
Whether you’re looking to splurge a little or need a completely free surprise, you’ll find something good on this list.
#1 Cook Him a Special Meal
What would you do for your partner? Perhaps you’d go out for a meal or stay at home and make one yourselves. Well, since your dog can’t go inside restaurants (unless there’s a dog café in your area), you can choose the later option. Stay at home and make your pup the most exquisite dinner, complete with all his healthy favorites. Then, sit down and enjoy it together.
#2 Pup Valentines Cards
Even if you don’t give our Valentines to your friends, we bet your dog’s friends will appreciate them. You can print out some Valentine’s and attach a treat to each one. Then, on Valentine’s night, take a walk with your fur friend, making pit stops at his doggo friend’s houses to drop off the goods. You’ll also feel a sense of goodwill knowing that you made each pup’s V-Day.
#3 Long Walk
If the weather is good, take your doggo out for a long walk somewhere new. Although this may not feel like a Valentine’s Day activity to you, it’s the ultimate act of love because pups love sniffing new scents and seeing new things.
#4 Deep Tissue Massage
If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing, pop on a good show or movie on Netflix and watch it while giving your dog a deep tissue massage. As opposed to the regular pet, a massage involves kneading his skin rather than simply running over it with your fingers. Focus on areas where there’s a lot of excess skin or fat, such as the neck. This may be easier on some dogs than others and make sure to be more careful with fragile doggos.
#5 Edible Crunch Card
Now this is a Valentine’s Day card your doggo will be ecstatic to receive. With the adorable phrase “Just Bepaws I love You,” he’ll get a warm feeling in his heart. After the intelligent pup reads the message, he’ll devour the crunch goodness.
#6 Find Your Dog a GF/BF
Play cupid this Valentine’s Day and set your dog up with another pup. Go to the dog park and let them meet new friends. If they’re lucky, it could be love at first bark.
