Can your pet be your Valentine? Sure! Nobody loves us like our pets do. And even though we shower them with affection, they always appreciate some extra one-on-one time. So whether you want to spoil them with some extra treats or get gorgeous with grooming, here are some fun and silly things to do with your pet this Valentine’s Day.

Five Valentine’s Day “Pet Date” Ideas

1: Day Spa Date

Pay a visit to the spa—or to the groomer, in your pet’s case. They’ll come out smelling fresh and looking gorgeous, all trimmed, detangled, and fabulous. Or, give your pet a little luxury spa treatment at home with a full-body brushing session, a nail trim, and maybe even a bath.

2: Matching Accessories

If your pet likes to dress up, festive outfits always make fun photos. You could wear matching red sweaters, heart-patterned bandanas, cute pink bows, or Valentine-themed bow ties. 

3: Valentine’s Treats

Since a box of chocolates is out of the question, bring home a fresh bag of your pet’s favorite treats instead. Or, if you like to bake, your dog would love a special batch of heart-shaped doggy biscuits. And instead of flowers, your cat might appreciate a bouquet of wheatgrass to chomp on.

4: Candlelight Dinner

Feeling fancy? Light some pet-safe candles (or turn on some LED candles) and enjoy a glass of fine wine and hors d’oeuvres while your cat enjoys some Fancy Feast in a crystal bowl. Or, make a home-cooked meal for your dog and feed them tidbits while you make your own dinner. 

5: Movie Date

Curl up and cuddle on the couch together while you watch your favorite movies. Pop some popcorn, grab a bag of pet treats, turn on the tv and get cozy. Whether it’s a romantic comedy or an action adventure or a classic black-and-white film, it’s the time spent together that’s important.
