There's a reason dogs have earned the title "human's best friend" — they make us laugh, comfort us when we're down, and bring a lot of joy to our lives. Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, we forget to show them just how much they mean to us.

But Valentine's Day is the "pawfect" time to show your adoration for your fur-baby. If you're looking for an awesome gift that will leave a memorable impression on your pooch, read on! We've found 8 gifts your dog will absolutely love for Valentine's Day!


Dog Hide N' Slide Interactive Treat Puzzle Dog Toy by Outward Hound

Outward Hound makes a lot of high-quality, mentally stimulating dog toys, but the Dog Hide N' Slide Interactive Treat Puzzle takes the cake. Your dog will have a blast sliding open the swivel compartments and pushing levers to reveal their favorite treats, and with 14 compartments, you can be sure that this toy will keep your pup busy for a while.

The intermediate design is just as good for puzzle-solving pros as it is for novice gamers. Plus, since this toy is free of harmful plastic additives like BPA and PVA, you can rest easy knowing playtime is safe.


KONG Wobbler Food Dispensing Dog Toy

In search of a toy for an aggressive chewer? Look no further than the KONG Wobbler. This food-dispensing chewy features the classic KONG shape your dog has grown to love, but with a fun new feature: it wobbles!

As dogs chase and paw the KONG, it wobbles, falls over, and bounces right back up — spitting out treats all the while. The Wobbler is made of durable rubber that's gentle on your dog's gums but tough enough to withstand aggressive chewers. The best part is it's dishwasher-safe, so you don't have to worry about washing it by hand like similar toys.


PetSafe Drinkwell Stainless Multi-Pet Pet Fountain

If you often catch your woofer drinking from faucets, this gift has Fido's name written all over it. The PetSafe Drinkwell Multi-Pet water fountain is one of the best dog watering systems on the market, with its stainless steel components, sleek look, and built-in water filter. Dogs love that it gives them access to filtered running water throughout the day.

Petsafe has several pet water fountain designs, but we love this one for its durability and 360-degree design, which accommodates multiple pets at once. Petsafe also sells refill carbon and foam filters to ensure water stays fresh and tasty for the life of the fountain!

TRIXIE Activity Poker Box Dog Toy, Large

Dogs who love a good challenge will go nuts for the TRIXIE Activity Poker Box. This dog puzzle is like 4 puzzles in one, requiring dogs to pull, push, and paw different compartments to release the loot. This toy is a good middle-of-the-road option for dogs who find basic puzzles boring but struggle with elaborate designs. Be sure to keep treats on standby, because your woofer will be begging you to refill the compartments over and over again!

Cheerble Wicked Ball

The Cheerble Wicked Ball has taken the game of fetch and flipped it on its head! This electronic ball will jump, wobble, and roll on its own, offering fetch-obsessed dogs and their spectators hours of quality entertainment.

When the batteries run out, simply plug the ball into a USB charger to juice it up for the next round of play.  This ball isn't for heavy chewers, so if your dog tends to get chew-happy, you might want to limit this toy to supervised playtime.

PetSafe Ricochet Electronic Dog Toy

The Ricochet Electronic Dog Toy by Petsafe is one of the most unique dog toys we've come across. It's part squeaky toy, part puzzle, and a whole lot of fun!

The kit comes with two egg-shaped electronic toys which send signals to each other when your dog plays with them. When your dog pounces on one toy, the other will make noise, encouraging your dog to run over and investigate it, and when Fido does, the other will squeak. Dogs go crazy for it!

This toy is such a favorite that the design won the 2019 Pet Business Industry Recognition Award! Keep in mind this toy takes 6 AAA batteries, so make sure you keep a pack on hand.

goDog Action Plush™ Animated Dog Toys

If your dog loves attacking their squeaky toys, your fur-baby will lose their mind when they open this next gift! The Action Plush™ Animated Dog Toy checks all the boxes for a great squeaky toy and then some! It's soft yet durable with reinforced seams and chew guard technology— but that's not the best part. 

This toy wiggles when bite pressure is applied, just like real prey! With the Action Plush Animated line, your dog can fulfill their natural desires and hunting dreams in the comfort and safety of your home. Plus they come in all sorts of animal designs from lobsters to lizards. 

Just buy it and thank us later!
