Valentine’s Day is often filled with expectations of romance or sometimes even melancholy recollections. So, if you want to make sure you’re not let down this Valentine’s Day, make a date with your pet! Who better to spend a day of love with than your sweet, eager-to-please fur baby?

Grab Lunch at A Dog Friendly Cafe:  Taking your dog out for lunch at a cute cafe and a good book is a great way to spend an afternoon.  After lunch you can take a stroll in a park or maybe window shop on the streets.

Go Shopping for Toys and then play at the Park:  Dote on them a little by taking them shopping for a new toy and maybe a bag of treats (check out Oliver’s Collar Dog Treat Bakery).  Then head outside to the park and have some fun!

Bake Heart Shaped Cookies:  Bake yourself some sugar cookies and make these delicious little peanut butter or pumpkin treats for your pet.  They are sure to love it, as cookies always make a day more special.

Make A Clay Paw Print:  Our pets are often our best friends, so making a cute little keepsake of their paw prints is a sweet way to remember your special time together.  Clay is the best way to go, but if you opt for the salt-dough version, make sure to keep it out of your dog’s reach.  If they eat the salt dough, it is potentially toxic.

Get Professional Pictures:  Another way to have a keepsake of your pet is to get pictures taken together.  You probably have a ton of pics of your pet already, but how often are you in them, too?  

Netflix a Pet Flick:  At the end of the day, tuck in and snuggle up with popcorn and a good movie. Homeward Bound, Lady and The Tramp, Marley & Me and Hotel For Dogs are just a few of the great pet-centric movies out there for you to enjoy.  Break out the leftovers from lunch or some more of those heart shaped treats and have a nice quiet night cozying up with your pet.

Valentine’s Day can be a hard time for a lot of people, but it doesn’t have to be all romance and diamonds.  Just doing something special with your four-legged companion is enough to make the day great!
