The 10 Fantastic Valentine’s Day Gifts for Dogs

1. Pohshido 2-Pack Valentine’s Dog Bandana

Pohshido 2 Pack Valentines Dog Bandana

Bandanas never went out of style, and this should be your go-to summer accessory should you feel the need to protect your pup’s chest from dust and dirt. The fabric used in its production is nylon, making it light and giving it a delicate feel.

The Pohshido Bandana comes with a buffalo plaid design and can be worn during summer or winter. You don’t have to worry about whether or not they’ll fit your dog, as they are all adjustable.


2. KYEESE Dog Sweater

KYEESE Dog Sweater

It’s your responsibility to make sure that your pooch is well protected from the cold at all times. Kyeese understands this, and that’s why they gave us a pullover dog sweater that even features a leash hole. Although it doesn’t fit medium or extra-large breeds, it’s still an amazing Valentine’s gift for dogs that love wearing soft and comfortable pieces of clothing.


3. ZippyPaws Jigglerz Squeaky Plush Dog Toy

ZippyPaws Jigglerz Squeaky Plush Dog Toy

More than anything, dogs love playing with squeaky toys. The Jigglerz Squeaky Plush Dog Toy is the perfect Valentine’s gift because it’s affordable, machine washable, and has an extra layer of a resilient Cordura material to guarantee durability. What’s more, the fact that it doesn’t have any stuffing means your dog’s play sessions will be mess-free.


4. Blueberry Pet Heart Flocking Dog Collar

Blueberry Pet Heart Flocking Dog Collar

The Blueberry brand is one of the most popular and revered brands in the industry. They are known to produce premium-quality products, such as the Heart Flocking Dog Collar. It features a velvet bowtie that is detachable and buckles made of bio-based plastic.

Bio-based plastics are eco-friendly, as they are derived from materials that are plant-based. This product is durable and easy to wash, but not stretchable. That’s why you’re advised against leaving your dog unattended if the collar is still on.


5. Harikaji Pet Clothes Valentine T-Shirt

Harikaji Pet Clothes

Dogs are usually susceptible to sunburn after shaving. And the burns aren’t just painful to the animal, as they can also precipitate more serious health conditions, such as different types of skin cancer.

But you can avoid the burns by making sure that your dog is always wearing some cool Harikaji cotton fabric clothes any time they’re exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet light. These clothes are soft, comfortable, and easy to wash. They come in different sizes, so we’re pretty sure you can find something for your dog.


6. Claudia’s Pink Passion Dog Cookie

Claudia's Canine Bakery Dog Cookies

These oven-baked dog cookies are usually in a wafer form and don’t have any preservatives. This is a good thing since some of the ingredients that we use as preservatives in our foods are harmful to dogs.

The manufacturers also avoided adding fillers, or any animal by-product that would make a pet parent feel uncomfortable.

Professional trainers love using these cookies as treats during training sessions. Dogs love them because they are loaded with honey and are shaped like bones. In the box, you’ll find an assortment of Valentine-themed cookies.


7. Custom Catch Personalized Dog Mat

Custom Catch Personalized Dog Mat

This dog mat can fit any carrier or crate that’s up to 24 inches. It’s designed using a machine-washable material, to make cleaning easier for owners. Before purchase, you have the option of imprinting your dog’s name on the mat.

The text styles will depend on your preference, as well as the mat color. They have it in blue, beige, maroon, gray, and purple. All these shades help to hide your dog’s shedding while complementing your home décor.


8. Crunchkins Edible Crunch Card

Crunchkins Edible Crunch Card

Crunchkins Edible Crunch Cards are the type of treat that you get to give your dog on special occasions only. The cards are produced using rawhide, and that’s what makes them edible. For the colors, they used a canine-friendly dye that’s water-based. A perfect Valentine’s Day card for your beloved pooch!


9. Best Friend Necklace Keychain

Best Friend Necklace Keychain Set for Dog

A necklace has a way of adding a unique touch to your dog’s collar. While the Best Friend Necklace is the perfect gift for Valentine’s, it can still be worn during other special occasions. They could rock it during your birthday party or any holiday occasion. This product is hypoallergenic, easy to clean, and very durable.


10. Pets Bella Bowl Designer

Loving Pets Bella Bowl

We’ve always believed the visual design of a dining plate (or bowl, since we’re talking about dogs) subtly communicates to the diner a meal’s value. For some reason, food usually tastes better if some degree of effort has been put into the presentation.

Some people think it’s because all five senses are being pulled into the eating experience, and maybe they are right. All we know for certain is that your dog will enjoy his/her meals a little bit more if you get them a unique bowl. One that’s durable, sturdy, and more importantly, aesthetically pleasing.

Things To Consider When Buying a Valentine’s Day Gift for Your Dog

Dogs are our friends and family members. So when you’re out there shopping for gifts, you’ll want to get something that’s both thoughtful and useful. We usually have a list of factors that influence our decision-making process, and we’d like to share them with you.

Breed

Some toys are versatile, while others are not. Some are designed for smaller breeds, while others have functions that are specific to large dogs. Therefore, you have to consider your dog’s height and weight before thinking about possible gifts.

Type of Treat

Dogs have different tastes and preferences, which you should consider when deciding on a treat for your pooch. No matter your choice, steer clear of any dog treat that has a high amount of salt or fat. They could cause digestive problems or lead to obesity.

Personality

To better understand this point, you have to compare a breed like the Pekingese to the Border Collie. The former loves to lounge on a sofa, while the latter will fall into depression without exercise. Don’t get tennis balls for the Pekingese, for example—a chew toy may be a better option.

Final Thoughts

Dogs love gifts as much as humans do—they just have a different way of showing it.
