Sure, us humans plan for romantic date nights, drinks with friends, card-making with kids, but what about our dearest and nearest Valentine’s...our beloved four-legged lovers?!
If you are looking for a great last minute way to show your dog how much you truly love them this Valentine’s Day, try one of these easy ideas and be sure to get a slobbery kiss in return!
1: Make an easy home-made/healthy tasty treat! We found this one from Healthy Dog Blog:
Doggy Fro-Yo Treat
Makes 12 (2 ounce) treats
2 cups of low fat, all natural Greek yogurt (no sugar, no additives)
1 medium banana
1/3 cup all natural, organic peanut butter
1 tablespoon honey
FIRST: Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.
SECOND: Pour mixture into (silicon or paper) molds of your choice, place on a baking sheet and freeze, at least 1 hour.
THIRD: Remove fro-yo pops from molds and serve.
2: Surprise your dog with a new toy! Days at home, waiting for you (and our dog walkers, of course;)), to come and love on them can be tough. Show your pup you care by gifting them with something small to know you are always near!
3: Get creative and do a DIY photoshoot and take a picture of your favorite pup next to something red/pink/hearted etc for you to always remember your love for them!
Tip: Involve the kids, making a family/dog memory, and make a Valentine’s craft by cutting out a large foam (foam might be kinder than paper) heart head crown. Warning, your dog may not actually want to wear this, but it’s a fun way to make your dog feel like the center of attention on a special day! Or have the kids make a sign that says “free kisses” to put next to the dog in a picture!
4: Quality time. What says “I love you” more than some well deserved cuddle or play time with your favorite K-9?! Play a game of hide and seek with their favorite toy or tug-a-war! Spend time with your pup and they are sure to feel loved!
5: Lastly, take your dog for LONG walk! Don’t have time? Email us, Woof Walk DC to add a walk, gifting your dog with what they really want on Valentine’s Day! ;)
