Avoiding Valentines Day? Who needs a date when you’ve got a dog. With a dog, you are never alone. We are used to our dogs showing us unconditional love every day so why not make this day special for them and for you. Here are some ways to enjoy this Valentines Day with your fluffy, slobbery friend:
Bring them on an Adventure
Why not take your dog somewhere different than your usual walking route. Most dogs love swimming – try taking them to your nearest beach/lake and watch how much fun they will have. If you are feeling more adventurous, then what better way to spend a few hours with your dog than to climb a (small) mountain together. Whatever your choice, you and your dog will be guaranteed to have a day full of fun and exercise.
Did you know? Exercising with your dog is one of the best ways to strengthen your bond. You can read more about exercising with your dog here.
Who Doesn’t Love a Good Toy for Valentine’s Day
How exciting is a new toy? Dog toys are a great way to stimulate your dogs mind, engage their senses and satisfy their desire to tear things apart. Spoil your dog and buy them a toy you know they’ll love. Even better, get them something you will both enjoy like this frisbee or even a nerf gun. Playing fetch with your pet is a good way of teaching them new manners. You can learn more about playing fetch here. Fun Fact: a toy can help remove plaque from dogs teeth which helps combat dental problems and bad breath. Nobody likes a date with bad breath!
Get Cosy in a Brand New Bed
If you don’t like sharing your bed with a furry, slobbery fluffball, you can treat them to a cosy brand new bed. Our Danish Design Snuggle Bed is exactly what your best friend deserves. Put it in the sitting room next to the couch, then sit back and watch The Notebook with your dog. They won’t judge you for crying.
Is there anything better than a spa day?
Bring your dog to your local dog groomers and get them spruced up for the day ahead. They will leave looking and feeling fabulous. Here are the benefits on grooming your dog regularly:
- Promotes a silky, shiny coat.
- Promotes good blood circulation.
- Stimulates the skin, producing natural oils to permeate through the skin and coat.
- Acts as bonding time, allowing you to nurture your relationship with your dog.
- Allows you to check up on your dog, seeing if they have picked up anything unwanted i.e. fleas, ticks, lumps, rashes, etc.
