The Best Way to Celebrate Your Dog this Valentine’s Day!


If the road to your heart is paved with paw prints then you might be just as excited about Valentine’s Day as we are! After all, Valentine’s Day is synonymous with love, isn’t it? So, how do you express your love to the one who spends more than half of his life waiting at the door for you to come home from work?

How about a new toy? Your dog loves his old toys but I’m sure he would appreciate a break from the same old routine. Toys aren’t just fun either. In addition to being a new source of entertainment, toys promote mental and physical stimulation. That’s a win-win situation because a happy dog results in a more obedient, less destructive dog! The Kong, Buster Cube, and the nylabone are all great choices that have become increasingly popular over the years, and for good reason, too!

Every dog loves a good treat, so why not shake things up and come home with some goodies! In fact, you can have healthy, gourmet treats from the Healthy Hound Bakery delivered right to your door! The Healthy Hound Bakery bakes every day using all natural ingredients. Even better, why not bake some treats right at home right in the comfort of your own kitchen? Not sure where to start? We suggest beginning right here with Martha Stewart’s best dog treat recipes.

Nothing makes a dog come running faster than calling out, “Time for dinner” so why not cook up a feast fit for a king (or queen)? No, we don’t mean cook yourself a great meal and give Fido the scraps because that’s not healthy! We’re talking about a healthy, entrée that you can toss right in your crock pot! Take a look at Chungah’s page for some amazing meals that you can make with the best ingredients. As always, check with your vet before changing up your dog’s diet but we think your vet just might give you his nod of approval and a bit of admiration as well.

Finally, one of the best ways you can show your love for your dog is by keeping him safe this Valentine’s Day and every day! Many celebrations, including Valentine’s Day, mean that there just may be an abundance of chocolate and other candies that are ONLY safe for human consumption. Keep all candy and chocolate out of your dog’s reach. Dogs can be quite resourceful when their nose catches the sweet scent of something good so never underestimate just how smart, and sneaky, he can be! Candy and especially chocolate can be highly toxic for dogs and unfortunately, many people are still in the dark about the harsh realities regarding chocolate poisoning and xylitol (sugar substitute) poisoning.

When it comes right down to it, your four legged canine companion only truly desires your love and companionship. A simple That-a-boy and a few belly rubs will mean more to him than anything else! Wishing you and your pets a safe and Happy Valentine’s Day!
