Your favorite furball, your confidante, your greatest supporter and friend. How could you love thee? Let us count the ways with gifts!
Does your dog greet you when you come in? Comfort you when you’re sick? Share their favorite toys with you?
Dogs have many ways to show you their love.
If you’re like us at PawedIn, your pet is family. And, in our family, we give gifts of love for Valentine’s Day.
We’ve searched our blog pages and the web and come up with several great ideas to show your pet how much you love them.
1. Homemade Dog Treats:
Just like you love homemade chocolate chip cookies, your fur baby is bound to love a homemade treat too. From Pinterest to YouTube, there are many awesome recipes for homemade treats.
Here’s a list of some of the best homemade dog treats to bake for your pooch.
Or, if you’re not the baking type, you can always buy some scrumptious dog treats from these dog bakeries.
What could be more fun than playtime with your pet? Chasing toys and treat toys are always fun, but if your dog tends to be a chewer, be sure to check out our rundown of indestructible toy gifts.
“Every girl’s crazy ‘bout a sharp dressed”. . .dog. Yes, some dogs really do HATE to get dressed up like it’s prom night but there are those more fashionable beasties that are happy to strut their stuff in the latest haute couture.
Since it’s still cold out in most areas, we suggest you consider a fabulous new coat or sweater.
Speaking of dashing dog wear, no outfit is complete without the perfect set of shoes. We’ve got the latest in designer doggie duds right here.
5. New pillow:
There are many bedding options out there today for your furry friend. From cute blankets to memory foam pillows to even heated beds, you are sure to find something to make your pet feel pampered.
What princess doesn’t need a fluffy throne to lounge on? ‘Nuff said!
6. New leash/collar:
Depending on your dog and how they do with walking, you can also choose from harness styles or standard collar styles. And, even better, there are many adorable matching leash/collar sets.
While you’re shopping, be sure to get your best buddy a stylish new name tag too. Don’t forget to put your phone number on there in case of emergency.
7. Trip to the vet for a check up:
While this one may not be as “fun” as you or Fido were hoping for, the gift of health is a great way to keep your relationship going for years to come.
8. Trip to the groomers:
Because, hey, don’t we all like to get our manis and pedis done? In addition to manis and pedis, your dog can get a bath, an ear rinse and get their nails trimmed. Girlie dogs can even get some bows added to their mane.
9. Brush their teeth: We all know you let your furry date kiss your face. Don’t you want him to have fresh breath and healthy teeth? A new toothbrush and toothpaste is really a gift for BOTH of you.
10. Take your dog on a date!
That’s right. Hit a local dog park, restaurant, coffee shop with outdoor seating, or even just your own back yard for some play time and togetherness. After all, that’s really what they want most.
And, if you’re really feeling adventurous, you could take Fido on a weekend getaway. Websites like DogFriendly and BringFido list various hotels and other tourist attractions that allow pets to accompany you.
Valentine’s Day may be but just once a year but your pet’s love is ongoing. Be sure to take some time out on a regular basis and show them how much you love them being in your life.
