Sweet Tips For Treating Your Dog On Valentine’s Day

Here are some fun ways to show your precious pup how extra special they are to you.

Take Your Dog to Their Favorite Dog Park

Many dogs enjoy socializing and playing with other dogs, which is good for their well-being and can contribute to good behaviors. Take your furry buddy to their favorite dog park where they can play and frolic with other dogs. They’ll enjoy letting out some energy and you can feel good knowing they’re getting some exercise to keep them healthy and active.

Treat Them to a New Toy

Dogs always love getting a toy to play with. Take them to the pet store and let them pick out their own toy, or surprise them with one when you get home. There are so many toys to choose from! From digestible dog chews and bully sticks to all those super squeaky Kong® toys that provide hours of chewing enjoyment and interactive puzzle toys; find one that fits their habits, age, and size. Sometimes, a simple frisbee or a bouncy tennis ball is all they need!

Bake Them Homemade Dog Treats

There are many healthy DIY dog treats made with dog-friendly ingredients that you can make at home. From homemade doggy ice cream to baked cookies, your dog’s tail will be wagging with excitement when they get to enjoy a special treat made with love! Here are some fun and healthy options:

  • Homemade doggy ice cream made with natural plain Greek yogurt, natural peanut butter, and banana.
  • Fruity ice cream made with fresh blueberries, strawberries, and natural plain Greek yogurt.
  • Heart-shaped grain-free and flour-free peanut butter cookies made with organic oats, peanut butter, and banana.

Take Them for an Extra Long Walk

Dogs love going on walks with their people. Take them for a longer walk than the normal 20-minute after-work walk. You can even walk them on a different route or hit a new trail where they can pick up new scents. You might even take them on a nice easy hike through one of the open space areas here in Kansas City. Bring a frisbee along in case you stumble upon an open area where they can safely run off of the leash.
