Celebrate V-Day date at the doggo's favourite spot at home as it is a sign of their comfort zone. It can be your sofa, bed or favourite corner.
For dinner - set up a small table with goodies and balloons. Don't go overboard with decorations, keep them minimalist and play dedicated pet music to set up the atmosphere.
Don't use too many candles, it is preferred to use faux candles as pets may be scared of the real ones.
For cats- who don't stay at one place - play with them using their favourite toys to get their attention and make it worthwhile. Click cute selfies for memories.


Picnics are a fantastic treat for pets. They love to run around, eat and play with their pet parents. So setting up an outdoor date is a welcome change.
Don't forget to shoot videos to capture their cute moments.
