Valentine's Day Gifts for your Dog

Updated on June 11, 2011

Experience puppy love

 A dog is a man's best friend.  Well, so they say in all the ads for dog food.  Most people forget about their dogs on Valentine's Day, but I guarantee you, your little doggy won't forget about you.  It'll be right there at the door or wagging its little tail at the bottom of your bed, ready to smother you with little kisses for Valentine's day.  Unless of course, you have a really big dog like a Great Dane.  Chances are you'll then get woken up by a valentine's day bath!  Here are some gift ideas for you to spoil your dog on Valentine's Day.  Remember, your dog is your most loyal and trusted friend.  Don't be afraid to spoil them stupid!

Oh and a dog could also be very useful for attracting members of the opposite sex, so that next Valentine's Day you could end up spending it with a real person, rather than a dog.  for that, you need to be prepared.  So, invest in some eye-catching clothing for your dog so that their fine lines and smooth looks can attract single people's dogs in the park.  Once their dog escapes and tries to mount yours, you are set!  Introduce yourself, comment on where you purchased your dog's trendy clothes and ask if they can take it home to wash their dog's muddy footprints off it.  That way, you'll get their address, contact details and will surely see them again.

Dogs become even more loyal when you feed them treats.  Give a dog dog treats and they will do anything for you, including keeping your feet warm on a cold winter's night.  Treats also encourage them to perform tricks in public which will attract a large audience of members of the opposite sex.  Experience some puppy love and give your dog some dog treats.

Every city dog needs some dog bagels to make them feel as if they are fitting in.  They don't want to feel left out and forced to eat cans of dog food.  Do you know what goes into a can of dog food?  I thought not.  Disgusting nasty stuff.  Treat your dog on Valentine's Day with a breakfast in bed of choice dog bagels.  talking about beds...

Your dog really needs to have his own bed for those special nights when your bed is occupied by another hot body other than your own.  As I said before, you have to be prepared for this eventuality, so purchase a dog bed today!  Your dog also loves a comfortable nights sleep.  The dog loves you, spoil them.

Then of course, you can invest in a snazzy dog collar especially for walking out in public days.  Dog lovers are particularly attracted to dog collars.  An added bonus, is if they follow you home and you get to know them a little better, you can let them try out your dog's snazzy collar for some kinky fun evenings.  You might even want to let your dog wear his Valentine's Day gift collar on the odd occasion!

So on Valentine's Day, do not forget your furry friend.  Your furry friend will not be forgetting you.  Check out the Valentine's Day Gifts for your Dogs and get your order in quickly before they all sell out!  You never know, this hub might start a whole trend!  Valentine's Day for Dogs.  They do sell doggy chocolates as well, don't they?

And the book you need to read while you let your dog run at the park

      Penny, sounds like you'll have to advertise for a dog-loving man! Maybe a vet?

      My puppy will NEVER have a bed of his own! My bed IS his bed :) Any man doesn't like that he can "do one!" I briefly dated an idiot who came back to MY appartment one night where I pay all the bills, and proceeded to put a dog bed down, I asked him what the hell it was and he replied it was so Kc won't sleep in the bed anymore, I waited til that night took Kc to bed as normal, and the idiot man says "Well put him in the dog basket then!" I sat up and said "you know what? You get in the f**king dog basket!" He replies "Don't be daft! Just get him out I don't want him in the bed!!" I got up got his clothes threw them at him and said "either you sleep in that dog bed or YOU get out!" He of course refused so I told him to leave becuse he was dumped!

      NEVER come between a girl and her best best best friend!!

      Sally, I think you need to do a hub with those dog biscuit recipes as I'd like to make some biscuits for my dog! Can you please give me the recipe?

      Cindy, how inspiring. I gave up St. VD a long ago in terms of romance. These days I celebrate it with the women in my family: mother, daughter, aunts, cousins. Since I have a big, old Goldie girl with me now, she's going to get some special attention on this day. I've got a good recipe for homemade dog biscuits, and I'm going to make a batch with a heart-shaped cookie cutter.

      Now, if I get a yearning for romance, I know how to deck out my dog and get her out of my bed. LOL. Great fun.

      The dog bagels got right to me. Jack would've eaten the whole box in a gulp or two! And he wasn't a city dog, he was the kind of dog to appreciate anything given him to eat!
