There are different ways to say “Be My Valentine” and in honor of Valentine’s Day people come up with more ways of wooing than we can imagine. However, if you are single, without a date, lurking in the corner, detesting the spirit of Valentine’s Day, here’s what you can do. Try to stay positive and celebrate Valentine’s differently. In fact, this might be a perfect day to try something unique. So, jump on the bandwagon of celebrating Valentine’s differently and plan a day out with your pet instead. Yes, you heard it right, below we have rounded up a list of ways that will help
you plan Valentine’s day-out with your pet.
Make a List of Their Likes and Dislikes
First and foremost, figure out everything that they like to do and then make a list. Make sure your list concerns everything they can do on a day out. For instance, say you have a dog and your dog loves running, taking leaps, and playing with toys in the park. You can add that to the top of the list and start your day by taking your dog out in the park. However, it’s Valentine’s Day so try to add some charm to your togetherness. You can turn the park date into a picnic and pack some of your dog’s favorite treats. Also, don’t forget to add all the other things that your dog likes to the list. This will help you organize the day as per your pet’s liking.
Cancel Your Plans and Focus on Your Pet
Yes, I understand that you’re busy, everybody else is busy, and we are all busying ourselves to weariness and boredom. Some are busy creating a digital resume to impress their new employer, while others are working hard to pass the next semester. Nonetheless, taking one day out for your pet won’t hurt you and I am sure if you have a pet, even the idea of spending a day with your pet will exhilarate your heart. So, make sure that you cancel all your other plans and keep the essence of V-Day intact. You can start your day with a park picnic as I have mentioned above, then take your pet to a restaurant that allows pets. For example, there are several pet-oriented food restaurants, specially designed for dogs and cats. So, you can make the most out of pet-friendly eateries and allow your dog to have a sumptuous meal.
Take Them to a Pet Store
There is nothing better than taking your pet to the pet toy store. It is similar to taking your kid to a toy store. Imagine the amount of joy your kid experiences after visiting a toy store and purchasing their favorite toys. Now, your pet is no different. So, once you have had a play-date and a lunch-date with your pet. Take your pet to the nearest pet store and let your pet pick a toy. Stores like Petsmart and Petco have pet-friendly policies. You can take your dog or cat to these stores.
However, don’t forget to tie them to a leash. This way they can pursue the shelf and you can keep an eye on the things they are going for. In my personal opinion, dogs and cats love to explore new things and a toy store is a perfect way to help them explore their eagerness for new things. And the good news is, they will be so excited to pick a toy that it will immediately bring a smile on your face.
Prepare Your Dog For a Professional Photo shoot
Now, there is no better way to end the day. All you need is a professional photographer and a perfect location to carry forward with the professional photo shoot. However, if you think that you cannot afford a photo shoot, you can still take lovely pictures of your dog with the help of your phone. Several stores provide you with professional pet portrait packages. No wonder there are so many pet pictures on Instagram and Facebook these days. Those pictures are so surreal that you can’t help but imagine how your dog or cat would look in a picture. So, prepare your pet for a photo shoot and groom them accordingly. You can add accessories and wear-a-bouts to the shoot as long as your pet is comfortable.
