Sure, Valentine’s Day is the day to show the person you are dating that you love them… we all know that. But you know what? For those of us who aren’t in a relationship or are and just don’t like the hype, this can be a day to show your pet that you love him/her.
Here’s 4 Ideas for a Valentine’s Date with your dog
Make paw prints
Your pets are a precious part of your life and we all know the time can fly by. Creating a paw print in clay can be a special keepsake. The kits are available at craft stores and are simple and fun. When it dries you can place the paw print in your garden, on your mantle, or anywhere you want. If you don’t want a clay print, you can also get a stamp kit and make paw prints on paper. Just remember to wash your pet’s feet afterwards.
Give your pets their favorite treats
Holidays are the ideal time to spoil those we love with the things they love the most. Does your dog go nuts over peanut butter? Does catnip make your cat loopy? Then give them their favorite treats and let them go nuts.
Go shopping for new toys
YAY! New toys you can both play with together are a great bonding tool. If your dog’s squeaking hedgehog doesn’t squeak anymore, then head to the pet store and let your pup pick out a new one. If your cat could use a new crinkle ball or cat dancer, today is the day to do it.
Set aside time for just you and your pets
Life is hectic for most people these days. Plan time on Valentine’s Day to just be with your pet. Take your dog for a walk along his favorite streets or park. Give your cat some extra pets and massage. Pamper your pets.
Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love and no one loves you more unconditionally than your pets.
