Valentine’s day is next Wednesday! It’s that time of year for all the sweets you can stomach and a day to send as many heart emojis as humanly possible. Why not kake your pup your Valentine this year with these awesome ideas from the blog barkpost?

 

1. Enjoy a candlelit meal for two.

Okay, so the candlelight is more for you than for them, but this is a special way to share a Valentine’s Day meal with your pup. Bonus points if you make them these heart-shaped dog treats to really show them they’re the light of your life. If you end up burning the treats a little bit, your dog won’t even care, so that’s great.

2. Watch your favorite movie together.

Fact: Dogs love licking tears off human faces. If your ritual on Valentine’s Day is to stay home in your pajamas and watch The Notebook while crying about how romance is dead, why not do it with your dog? Or you can watch Lady and the Tramp because you’re considerate and want your date to be able to relate to what’s on the screen. Either way, snuggling with your pup and sharing some popcorn is a sure way to have a lovely evening.

3. Box of chocolates? NAH. Get them a Puppy Love box instead.

We all know giving dogs chocolate is a bad idea, but that doesn’t mean you can’t gift them a box of delicious dog-appropriate goodies packaged especially for Valentine’s Day. The Puppy Love Box from BarkShop is “full of heart-warming dog toys, hearty all-natural treats, and as a bonus, some from-the-heart Valentine’s Day cards for the humans in the house.” It even comes with this exclusive heart emoji plush toy that’s sure to make your favorite squeaker giddy with joy!

4. Make your human valentine the third wheel.

My dog comes first, and any human who doesn’t get that isn’t worth keeping around. So for Valentine’s Day, all humans get ruthlessly third-wheeled. The Furever Yours Box on BarkShop is pawfect if you’ve got a puppy love and a human love, because it includes goodies for both, like these two Original Depler Wine Glasses.
