On Valentine’s Day, we give chocolate, teddy bears and roses to our loved ones to show our appreciation and affection. But what about our favourite pets? Here are some tips on making Valentine’s Day special for your pooch.
Give your pup a new toy
Show your dog some love by giving him a new toy. Try an interactive toy that can be filled with peanut butter or frozen vegetables. These toys help keep your dog busy while they work on getting the reward in the toy. You can also give your dog a chew toy made out of nylon or rubber to help scrape away build up on your dog’s teeth.
Take a long walk
What better way to spend Valentine’s Day with your pet than some quality bonding time. Take your dog for a nice long walk in the neighbourhood or bring him to a dog park to run around. It’s a great way for your pooch to get some exercise and have some fun.
Teach your dog new tricks
Another way to bond and show your dog some appreciation on Valentine’s Day is teaching him a new trick. You can teach your dog tricks such as give paw, crawl, fetch and roll over. Be sure to give a reward after he completes the trick.
Date night in
You and your dog may want to opt for a relaxing evening at home. You can cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie. Giving your furry friend his favourite treat along with some extra attention will make him feel special on Valentine’s Day.
