How to Spend the Best Valentine’s Day with the Real Love of Your Life (Your Pet)
Spending time with your pet is always wonderful and relaxing, but what about pampering them this V-Day? Here are some ideas for a wonderful Valentine’s date with your four-legged friends.
Taking a dog guided walk
Dogs love to go on walks and smell anything and everything. This time, give them the freedom to do so! Letting them lead the way on the walk, letting them smell everything that suits their fancy. Going on walks like this is a great way to bond with your pup and to find out their favorite sniffing spots. As long as they're having a good time and staying safe, let them guide you and see where they take you. You might find a new favorite place together.
Making them special treats
Making your own treats at home may seem like a big craft to take on, but some treats are as simple as freezing broth in Messy Mutts' baking/ice cube tray. Special homemade treats are a great way to give your pet something to munch on instead of chocolate. There are other options as well, such as these Hoggin Dogs ice cream making kits for your dog or these minnow treats from Northwest Naturals to top off your cats meal with. Finding recipes online for homemade treats is a simple search away. Your fur babies will appreciate the hard work you put into it!
Try out a new toy
Pets love having new and interesting things to play with, whether it’s the box from a delivery, or piece of rapper they found under the table, they love to play. Try out a new feather chaser or catnip toy for your cat, or a treat dispenser for your dog. Catnip is a great option to give your cat a mellow and chill V-Day. A treat dispenser is a fun way for your dog to flex their brains a bit and try and get all of the treats out! Even try out some of our Valentine-themed toys.
Have a date night in
You and your pet may want to have a nice, relaxing night in. Sometimes it’s nice to cuddle up on the couch with them and watch a good movie. If your pet doesn’t like loud action movies try a dog or cat movie. Whether it be an actual movie or a bird video on the internet, they’ll love to spend time with you.
Get them groomed
Pampering your pet can be a great way to help them stay healthy and feel great. Brushing, clipping their claws, and bathing them will make them feel and smell extra special. Why not take it a step further and get a paw and snout balm to keep them hydrated, or even some massage oil for a little stress relief for your furry friend. Light a candle and set up a DIY spa for you and your pet!
