Valentine's Day With My Dog
Are you a dog owner who is sad about not having a Valentine? Well, don’t be! Human dates can be totally overrated, so why not embrace being a pet lover and spend some time with your furry best friend for a one-of-a-kind dog valentine's day. Why not kick off your newfound "puppy love" with a dog date? Dogs and their people have the best time together, so we know you'll love having a dog Valentine! Here are some great reasons why dogs can be a way better date:
1. They don't talk!
Ever been in that situation on a date when you hit that awkward silence and you’re struggling to find something to fill it? Or right in the middle of a conversation they say something that throws up a giant red flag and you have to pop on that fake smile, while your eyes are sprinting back and forth trying to find the closest exit? Well not with your dog you won’t! They just want to hang out, no pressure or useless banter needed.
2. They are 100% cute!
Right! No matter what they are doing they are just darn adorable and the best snuggle buddy out there.
3. The chocolate is allllllll yours!
By not sharing with your pooch you are actually showing them how much you love truly love them. Chocolate is toxic to dogs and can make them very sick or even worse. So you are doing your dog a favor by keeping it all to yourself, even if they do give you those adorable puppy dog eyes. So gift the chocolate to yourself (or give as gifts for dog owners) and brainstorm some other ideas for Valentine's day gifts for dogs!
You can make your furry loved one a DIY gift basket filled with Valentine's gifts and goodies. The perfect dog gift can be as simple as tasty, pet safe dog treats (like dog biscuits, peanut butter, blueberries, and dog cookies), a new dog bowl, dog toy, dog collar, or a new bandana.
4. Pretty much anything you do makes them happy
An added bonus, you don’t have to try to impress them or win them over (plus they let you choose the movie or whatever trashy series you feel like binge-watching for the evening). They don’t care and are more than happy to chill on the couch with you watching a Rom-Com. Look around for gift ideas for what to give your Valentine's day dog date if you want, or just give them the gift of quality time with you! Just as long as you’re together.the movie or whatever trashy series you feel like binge watching for the evening).

5. No pressure for you to dress to impress!
Throw on those comfy PJ’s people because you can! Your dog isn’t going to judge the fact that you aren’t wearing makeup, have that weird colored mud mask on, and just tossed your hair up in a messy bun. And let’s face it, as a dog lover, you already know that you're probably going to just get covered in dog hair and paw prints by the end of the night, so leave that little black dress and heels in the closet.
6. No need to cook an epic meal!
You won’t have to slave away for hours, spend bank at the grocery store, and clean up like you just had Thanksgiving with your family. Your pup will be happy with the normal daily routine. You could make it more of an occasion if you want by preparing some homemade doggie treats or buying them a new plush toy or squeaker. Hey you get to eat all the chocolate and remember reason #2, yeah they are adorable and you know you can’t resist that face!
7. Looking forward to a little alone time, no worries!
No matter the dog breed, they won’t be upset if you choose a good book over a movie night. This is why Kongs and other toys that double as treat holders are great. You can load them up and keep your new puppy busy and happy.
And don't forget-- your cat can be your date too! You can do all of the above with them, but replace the dog food in our gift guide with catnip! However you choose to spend your day, we at PetDoors.com would like to wish you and your pet a very Happy Valentine's Day!
