Our dogs have proven that they will always give us the most enthusiastic welcome home, help us relieve stress, and keep a smile on our faces. We think they're the most deserving of a little extra love with Valentine's Day—maybe even a special V-Day date night?

From fun new toys in seasonal shades of pinks and reds to puzzles and snazzy new collars, 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 best pal feel the love.
