We all know friends and family will appreciate that special gift on Valentine’s Day, just to show how much we love and appreciate them, but we can’t forget about our furry friends that are also very special to us: our dogs.
They give so much to us and we ought to give back to them on this special day, too.
Here’s a list of some of the benefits they get from also receiving gifts on Valentines Day:
- They will feel loved
- The gift of a dog chew toy or other dog toys that encourage exercise will help them stay physically fit.
- The gift of a new leash or dog collar will encourage walking which will give them time to explore nature and keep their sense such as smell and sight keen.
- The gift of a dog crate or a calming dog bed will give them a sense of security in knowing they have their own “safe” place in your home.
These are some great gift ideas but remember the gift does not have to be expensive or even something you buy.
You truly can’t put a price on love, anyway. So if your budget does not allow a spendy present for your pooch do not worry!
Here are some wonderful things that will give your furry friend a warm fuzzy feeling:
- Sit down with your dog and pet them relax, just spend time.
- Play with them, with a ball, a dog frisbee, or a tug toy.
- Take them for a walk but let them “decide” where to go, how long it takes, and how many times they sniff the same tree, pole, or fire hydrant.
Take this day made for love to truly set aside a time that is dedicated to showing your dog how much you love and appreciate them for giving you the unconditional love that only a dog can.
