Valentine’s Day is not for people only. Show some love to your furry best friend with these ideas.
With Valentine’s Day being followed by President’s Day, you have a long weekend that you can’t not take advantage of. If your furry friend is your Valentine this year (and even if he is not), spend some extra time with your dog this weekend. We are suggesting these activities to switch things up and truly show your love to your pup.
- Take care of your pup’s health. Take your dog for a check-up to the vet, or to a dog spa. Did you know they offer dog facials in many grooming places? Look for special prices and packages for Valentine’s Day. Also, don’t forget to wash your dog’s bed when you’re doing laundry.
- Focus on something new. Dogs are social animals and love to play. Take your pet shopping for a new toy or order something online in advance. Try something new, like iFamCare’s Helmet pet monitor. Not only you can keep an eye on your dog when you’re away from home; you can also talk to him, or play with your pet using this pet camera‘s built-in laser pointer. If your best friend already has a lot of toys, learn a new trick instead!
- Spend quality time together. Even though you do take out your dog for a walk every day, make it a special one this time. Go on a hike together, or to a dog park. Alternatively, take your dog on a playdate. Check out local training classes for dogs, and enjoy your time together while learning something new. If the weather is not permitting, cuddle up together to watch your favorite dog movie.
- Create forever memories. Why not save your memories forever by taking professional photos taken of you and your furry friend? Many studios will be offering special discounts for Valentine’s Day. If you are not feeling it, have fun at home while creating your dog’s paw prints. Many stores sell homemade clay printing kits (check baby stores) that are simple to work with.
- Take care of less fortunate. Valentine’s day is about giving love, and you can share your love with the ones who are not fortunate enough to have someone. Consider making a donation to a local pet shelter, or volunteering for it.
