With Valentine’s day just around the corner, a lot of people are thinking how they can surprise their loved ones – but don’t forget your loyal, loving and faithful hound. 

Who could wish for a better Valentine!

But of course remember they are a dog, so they really are not interested in a card (no matter how heartfelt!) and definitely not chocolates or flowers either. It constantly amazes me how many people anthropomorphise (put human needs on to) their dogs – wouldn’t it be lovely if everyone really thought about what their dog would really like, rather than what they want to give them.

How about treating your dog to a really long walk in the woods, a fun game of hide and sniff or some extra special doggy treats to show them you care! But remember not to save these just for Valentines! Do something each day to show your dog just how much they mean to you!
