Doggy Date Ideas

Valentine’s Day can be celebrated with anyone you love and is the perfect reason to plan an extra-special activity. These are some of our favorites!

Bake some holiday treats

With the recipe linked below, you can make a batch of dog-safe cupcakes you can share with your pooch (maybe you can make a separate batch with sugar for yourself). For the cupcakes, you will need peanut butter, honey, baking powder, flour, oil, water, eggs, and bananas. The frosting is made from potatoes with a touch of yogurt and water. And you can spice it up with a treat or bacon topper!

Movie Night

There are lots of movies featuring dogs to watch with your pup! Some of our favorites include Homeward Bound, Bolt, Lady and the Tramp, and Oliver & Company. Many dogs love seeing fellow canines on TV and get invested in the action on screen. But at the very least, they’ll love the time spent cuddling with you (and maybe sneak a couple pieces of popcorn!).

But, if you’re like us, you’ll probably want to use this website before choosing a film:

Spa Day

Your dog will feel refreshed after a bath, brush, and maybe even a cute little bow! If your groomer is already booked up, a good brushing can still suffice! With spring around the corner, your dog will need help blowing their coat. Of course, if you own a poodle, Portuguese water dog, or other breed with a similar coat, you should be brushing them regularly to avoid matting and a shave down. If you own a double-coated breed like a husky or malamute, consider turning on a movie while brushing—you might finish by the time the movie’s over!

Doggy Gift Ideas

Goody Box: Valentine's Day Dog Toys & Treats

If you can’t decide on any one gift for your pooch, consider getting them a Valentine’s Day-themed goody box. Available only at Chewy, these goody boxes are available in multiple size options so that you can choose the best one for your dog. They come with fun toys, yummy treats, and festive bandanas!

Frisco XOXO Hearts Personalized Dog and Cat Bandana

If you’re looking for a stylish accessory for Fido, consider a personalized bandana! With this product, you can add a single line of text up to 13 characters long in one of five fonts. It’s perfect for looking stylish for all those family photoshoots and TikTok videos you might share with your friends and family. They’re also machine washable for easy cleaning and reusability.

Frisco Valentine Coffee for Two Plush Squeaky Dog Toy 

Instead of setting up your dog on a coffee date, set them up with these Valentine's Day coffee plush toys! It comes in a set of two, meaning that they can share it with a sibling or their best friend. The toy set features squeakers and crinkle paper to make the toy even more exciting

For Dog Lovers

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a dog lover in your life, consider getting something that reflects and aids their passion.

Chewy Gift Card

A gift card is a universally beloved gift by any dog lover; we all know that food and new toys can get expensive! This is especially great if you’re not sure of any dietary restrictions or allergies for special treats, or if the dog prefers certain kinds of toys. Sure, you’re looking to buy a gift for a human, but there’s nothing that brings a dog owner more joy than spoiling their pup.

Jewelry and Accessories

For those looking for a more personalized gift for their beloved dog lover, you may want to consider this selection of dog-themed jewelry and other accessories. Including earrings, personalized socks, and a pair of charms they can keep by their side, there’s sure to be something that stands out as the perfect gift.

A Night Together

Of course, Valentine's Day would not be complete without spending quality time with your partner. And sometimes that means you need to keep your furry family member occupied to avoid distractions. At Daragan's, we have you covered with our boarding services! Reserve a stay for the night you have planned together. Your pup will have a lot of fun while you enjoy quality time with your beloved human.
