It's been commonly said that dogs are a man’s best friend. Why not show your canine you care by celebrating Valentine's day with them. Here are some things you can do to pamper your pooch on this special day!
Doggie Treats: Valentines Day treats are sure favorites for dogs. Many pet boutiques and bakeries now offer special holiday themed goodies for Fido. For that special pooch, PamperedPawGifts.com has Special Edition Be Mine Black and White Barkies. These delectables are peanut butter cookies shaped like bones and are topped with carob and yogurt icing! They are priced at $8 dollars per 8 oz. package.
To add a more personal touch, make your own homemade dog treats. There are several do-it-yourself recipes online that are affordable, fun and healthy. Try making red velvet pupcakes! These trendy treats are nutritionally balanced and also serve a great source of fiber which aids in digestion. The recipe can be found on Kaboose.com and we give it two paws up! Take note, if deciding to make your own treats, stay away from foods like raisins, macadamia nuts, and chocolate which can be toxic and can make your dog sick.
Gift or Apparel: Spoil your furry friend with a V-Day fashion accessory or gift item. For the stylish pup, visit HandsnPaws.com for doggie clothing and novelty seasonal items. Our favorite is their Pretty in Pink Parka. This lightweight jacket starts at $48 for smaller dogs.
Not much of a fashionista and looking for more of a practical gift idea? Say "I Love You" with a heart adorned ID collar or dog bowl from your local PetSmart. Make sure to also check out their online store for more cupid holiday pet shopping.
Spa Date: Does your dog love to be pampered? If so, fancy them with a groom, facial and spa treatment. Dog spas offer a variety of services like nail trimming and polishing, aromatherapy and massages. For more of a personal touch and an added assurance that your pet is comfortable, mobile spas will come to your home to deliver their services! Our dogs are always there for us and constantly showing us love. So who better to remember on this special day than yours truly. Afterall, he/she is yours, truly.
