Pampering Your Dog for Valentine’s Day

Share with fellow dog lovers!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, everyone’s thoughts turn to showing their love…including love for your pets. If you plan to pamper your dog or cat this Valentine’s Day, the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS), a non-profit organization of in-home pet care professionals, has some ideas:

  • Reward your pets with an extra treat or a nutritious, homemade meal.
  • Spend quality time with your pets. Whether you lay with them, rub their belly or run around in the backyard, show your pets you enjoy their company.
  • Gift your pets with a new toy.
  • Treat your pets to a relaxing spa treatment at home: a luxurious bath, brushing, manicure, massage and fresh bedding for naptime.
  • Place a donation with a shelter or rescue organization in your pet’s name.

We love these suggestions…many don’t cost anything but some time and others help benefit shelter pets!

For Kelly, it will be extra walk time. I'm not as diligent as walking her in this weather (she gets to run in the back yard) but she loves it! So that is my gift to her.

That sounds like fun! I'm hoping for a nice long hike (and dare I wish for a picnic?) with the dogs and John for Valentine's Day, too, if the weather will cooperate!! Paris

Well for us, it's going to be a big B.A.T.H. - I spell it out, as he hates the word, but afterwards it's going to be a big cuddle, tummy rubbing session and then his favourite noisy,noisy, irritating babble ball toy!!
