Sure, your dog might not know it's Valentine's Day—but we think any reason to spoil your pooch is a good reason.
From fun chew toys in seasonal shades of pinks and reds to puzzles and snuggly heart-covered pajamas, there are tons of products here to help you treat your four-legged friend. There are also lots of great ideas that don't cost anything, like taking an extra long walk together or snuggling up for a movie night. Celebrating with your dog doesn't have to be complicated—a little bit of extra attention can go a long way toward helping your pet pal feel the love.
However you decide to spend Valentine's Day with your dog this year, we hope you have an amazing one. Read on to see our favorite products and ideas for spoiling your furry friend.
Play Hide and Seek
Spending a little extra time playing is a great way to show your pooch some love. This squeaky plush hide-and-seek toy for dogs has an interactive design and a fun Valentine’s Day theme. Hide the noise-making, letter-shaped toys inside the mailbox burrow and watch your precious pup have a ball trying to find the toys.

Treat Him to an Extravagant Dessert
Sweet treats are a classic Valentine’s Day indulgence—and this year, you can grab some for your pup, too. This box of six macarons for dogs is 100-percent handmade with human-grade ingredients (so they’re safe to share, if you’re into that … ). These corn-free, wheat-free snacks come in an impressive range of yummy flavors, including strawberry, rose, vanilla, lavender, and mint.

Pop the Bubbly
You might not be able to share a glass of celebratory champagne to mark the special occasion, but you can still treat your pup to some bottle service. These picture-perfect crusher chew toys are stuffing-free and instead have a water bottle and squeaker inside the plush casing. The inside components are designed to be easily replaced after a night of heavy chewing.

Have a Serious Snuggle Session
Spend quality time lounging on the couch together, snuggling up for an extra long nap, or letting your large breed pretend they’re a lap dog for a little bit. To take your celebration to the next level, splurge on a pair of super soft and stretchy Valentine’s Day pajamas for your pup.

Have a Game Night
A little extra attention can go a long way with your four-legged friend, which is why we think game night is a great idea. Throw a frisbee, play fetch, or set up a fun dog puzzle like this bone board game for dogs. This entry-level puzzle is great for pups of all ages and skill levels and will stimulate your pet’s brain and senses.

Go For an Extra Long Walk
Spending some extra time together on your daily walk is sure to make your precious pooch feel loved and appreciated. With all that extra time sniffing around and seeing the sights, you might want to invest in a cozy dog coat to make sure he stays comfortable in the February chill. We love this chevron option.
