There are plenty of fun ways to include your dog in your Valentine’s Day celebrations to show how much you love them and appreciate their loyalty.

In this article, our experts here at Pet Shop Online share some of our favourite ways you can celebrate V-Day with your furry family members!


Buy their favourite treats

To your dog, nothing says I love you like a treat or two.

Whether you just stock up on their usual favourites or push the boat out with a beef donut or some pigs ears, your pooch will be sure to thank you for it.

If you're more of a DIY gift-giver, you could make some homemade snacks for them to enjoy.

There are plenty of healthy dog-friendly recipes online that they'll love!


Spoil them with a new toy

To keep your pup entertained, it’s important to switch up their toy rotation from time to time so that they don’t get bored. What better excuse is there to treat them to a new ball or teddy bear than Valentine’s Day?

Here at Pet Shop Online, we stock a variety of dog toys that will become their new playtime favourites.

Retail therapy isn’t just for humans – so why not bring your canine companion along to visit us in-store and pick their own toys?


Teach them a new trick

Training activities are a great way to bond with your dog – so why not take the time to teach them something new this Valentine’s Day?

Not only are they guaranteed a couple of tasty treats for positive reinforcement, but engaging them in learning also gives them a great mental workout.


Go on an adventure together

If you’ve got a spare hour or two, you could take your pooch to a new dog-friendly nature trail you’ve been wanting to check out.

Maybe they could expend their energy over the field or at the beach?

Wherever you go, it’ll provide your canine companion with some much-needed mental and physical stimulation and be a fun social outing for the both of you!
