Love is in the air and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner you may have already made plans with loved ones, but have you considered a gesture of love for your dog? Pets love us unconditionally all year round, so why not show your pooch some extra love and care this Valentine’s Day. The bright and fun grooming brand, Pet Head, has lovingly put together some top tips to help show your four-legged friend just how much you care.
Let your dog stretch their legs with an extra special Valentine’s Day walk. If the weather allows, take your dog for a long walk full of fun and games in their favourite walking spot or if they prefer to explore, then why not take them somewhere new? Parks, fields and forests are full of exciting smells and things to explore, so be sure to stop and let your dog enjoy the new experiences. Always keep your dog within sight or on the lead, to ensure you can call them back should you encounter any obstacles or other animals.
We gift chocolate and flowers to our favourite people on Valentine’s Day, so why not treat our furry friend as well? Chocolate is of course out of the question when it comes to your dog, but there is plenty of choice when it comes to dog friendly treats. Give them an extra treat at playtime or perhaps their favourite meal for dinner? If you want to offer them something extra special, try a bit of boiled chicken and rice, peanut butter or some cooked salmon.
As the weather can be rather unpredictable at this time of year, why not give your dog a bit of extra playtime indoors with their favourite toy? There are plenty of training activities and games you can play that involves the whole family. Maybe you can even teach your dog a new trick! Why not try Coachies Training Treats? These mini motivators are just one calorie each and with no artificial colours, flavours or added sugars, perfect for getting your pups attention when training.
Consider giving your dog a bit more indoor playtime by arranging a doggy play-date with your pup’s best friends, it’s bound to be a hit.
At-home dog spa
Another great way to properly pamper your pooch is to give them an amazing bath. Pet Head offers a wide range of grooming products packed with great smelling, natural ingredients to suit any dog or coat. Why not try the Pet Head Oatmeal Shampoo to help nourish, soothe dry and itchy skin? Follow on with a conditioner such as Pet Head’s Furtastic Rinse. It helps ensure your pups fur stays silky soft and tangle free with a lovely blueberry muffin scent!
For a “doggy-pamper” worthy of spa status, follow on with a relaxing doggy massage. Be sure to give a bit of extra love and attention to your dog’s paws. Winter weather and salt on the roads can make them extra dry and cracked. Pet Head’s Oatmeal Paw Butter is perfect for relieving dry and tired paws or dry noses. Be sure to re-apply before and after walks as the oatmeal and the natural oils creates a protective barrier from the wet and icy ground, keeping your dog comfortable on their winter adventures.
With these suggestions we wish you happy Valentine’s Day filled with love and plenty of doggy snuggles!
