You don't have to fork out hundreds of dollars on gifts and make reservations at an expensive restaurant to show your two- and four-legged companions how much you love them. A little planning and a few inexpensive supplies can help you to create the most memorable Valentine's Day yet for your fur-family! From a relaxing spa day to decadent doggy dinners and exciting puppy "pawties", we've compiled a list of the very best at-home date ideas for your beloved dogs! These ideas are guaranteed to make your pack fall head over paws in love with you all over again!
Nothing makes you feel more warm and fuzzy than snuggling with your squad while watching a wholesome movie. Make this family night extra special with some freshly popped "pupcorn", dog biscuits, and some soft blankets. We're certain this little activity will make your dog feel like the luckiest (and comfiest) pooch on the planet!
Pup-cakes, ice cream, and cookies — oh my! Nothing says "I love you" like sweets, but unfortunately, many of the human confectionaries contain harmful ingredients for dogs, like chocolate, sugar, and xylitol. The internet has tons of delicious doggy and human-approved recipes. Our favorite is doggy "ice cream" made with plain yogurt, honey, bananas, and peanut butter — just don't eat it all before Fido gets a taste!
Pamper your pooch and significant other with an at-home paw-dicure! Dog-safe nail polish can be picked up at most major pet retailers, and are free of formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate, all of which are toxic to canines. Just make sure you lay down a towel beforehand to keep your floor polish-free! If Fido doesn't like sitting still, buy toenail caps for a paint-free fashion statement!
