Valentine’s Day may be different this year, but you can always count on your dog to be there for you. After all, who needs a date when you’ve got a dog! With a dog, you are never alone. We’re 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!
Get some exercise together
Why not take your dog on a nice, long walk or run. This should be done every day anyway, but you can change things up by going a different, more exciting walking route. Or even extending your walk by half an hour – whatever it is, your dog will definitely appreciate you for it.
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 Air Kong Squeaker Donut toy or even a Nerf deluxe air strike thrower. 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 Elephant bean bag 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.
Already have a super cosy bed? Then perhaps a new kennel to get cosy in – try the New Age EcoFlex kennel. It’s made from 100% recycled materials and is sure to keep your dog warm on those cold nights.
Is there anything better than a spa day?
We may not be able to bring our dogs into the groomers, but grooming your dog at home is actually easier than ever! We created the Dog Grooming Bundle which has all the products you need to groom your dog at home – from scissors, to shampoos, to nail clippers. If you want more tips on how to groom your dog at home, just check out our blog here.
Here are the benefits of 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.
Get them a Special Treat
If there’s one thing your dog will appreciate this Valentines Day it’s treats. Wake them up with a sweet treat on their pillow in the morning. If you’d like to take care of your dogs teeth this Valentines, look no further than the Nice N Natural Happy Teeth Star Carrot & Kale Dental Chews. We have treats for dogs on a diet, those with sensitive stomachs and even for those with joint problems. There’s something special for everyone.
Not too many treats though if you’re bringing him out for dinner!
You can always bring your pooch to hang out in your Nearest Petworld store – you’ll make our day too!
