If your house is like mine, does spoiling your dogs give you a ton of joy? Having a pet guardian as your Valentine means there’s even more love to go around. And gift-giving is so much easier, too!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to spoil your Valentine (and pet!): 

  1. A beautiful, custom collar. A custom collar with your favorite colors or a unique collar that looks like a piece of couture means bidding farewell to loud, jangling tags that can fade or fall off. Two of my faves: Paco Collars and Beadie Babiez
  2. A pet subscription box. Your love or best Galentine can have more than one Valentine’s Day when a pet subscription box arrives in the mail every month or quarter-year. There are treat-and-toy monthly crates packed full of surprises for dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, rats, guinea pigs and you! My favorite: Dog Mom Lifestyles
  3. Dinner on a pet-friendly patio.  If your dog is like ours you could turn your romantic dinner-for-two into something extra special. Just search online for “pet-friendly near me” to find restaurants, bars and wineries that will welcome both lovers and pets. 
  4. A session with an expert pet photographer (wink). What better way to cherish the day than to have a fun photo session together with your best friend – and keepsakes that last a lifetime? Let their personality shine in a timeless portrait that adds warmth and character to your home. Want to schedule a session? 👉 Contact me here.

Whatever your preferences, including their pet in the gift-giving can add to the memory – and the laughs – long-term. Of course, I’m always here to help as well!
