For most people perfect Valentine’s Day is spending time with your loved one, but there is no reason why you shouldn’t spend it with your furry, feathery, or scaly friend. Although your pet is the smallest member of the family, it has the greatest heart and deserves special treatment. For that, and many other reasons, February 14th is the best occasion to celebrate your pet. Here are some tips on how to have fun with your pet for Valentine‘s Day.
As we all know, we can't share chocolate and candies with our pets, so Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to make them some homemade snacks. You can make cheesy biscuits for your dog, salmon cat treats, mini muffins filled with fresh berries, and corn, peppers and seeds for your parrot. If you're not a crafty cook, there are a lot of pet bakeries which are serving up seriously delicious treats that will make your pet happy.
Throw your pet a party
Everybody likes to hang out with friends and have fun, therefore there is no better way to entertain your pet than to throw him a party and invite all of his furry buddies. Treats, toys and a lot of games will definitely cheer up our pets and bring joy into their tiny hearts. You can make a Valentine's Day theme party and dress up your pet as a little cupid. With costume hire available online, everyone can find a suitable costume, both pet, and his owner. That would be an amazing kind of party that everybody would talk about later.
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about romantic dinner and flowers, and there is nothing wrong with staying at home and watching movies with your pet. Put on some comfy pajamas, choose an interesting movie, get tasty snacks that you can both enjoy, and snuggle up with your little friend. There are a lot of sites where you can find movies appropriate for both of you. You will make him feel special and loved unconditionally. That is a great way to bond with your pet and spend some quality time alone.
Shop & go
Everyone loves surprises and presents, so do our pets. There are a few pet stores which allow pets on a leash, so make sure you take your pet in one of those, where they can choose a new favourite toy. You can also find the new collar, leash or hoodie for a cold day to warm up your pet. Don't forget to buy them new cushions for bedtime and let them explore the store, maybe they will find something interesting or meet new friends. That would be an interesting experience for you and your minion.
There is no better way of remembering meaningful things than taking a photo of them. No doubt that you have a lot of pictures of your pet in your phone, but it would be so much better to hire a professional photographer. As a present for you and your pet, you can make a series of goofy pictures, frame them, put them on your mug, his bowl or even use them as a fridge magnet. Don't forget to use some festive Valentine's Day props, like P.L.A.Y.'s Puppy Love Plush Toy Collection. Also, it would be great to capture all the funny moments which you can put on YouTube later and laugh with your friends. Really a great way to spend Valentine's Day.
These are just a few ideas on how to spend Valentine’s Day with your pet. Be sure to adapt to their needs, and no matter how busy you are, you need to show them love and care. If you do that, there is no question that Valentine‘s Day will be unforgettable.
