Puppy Love

Valentine's day is a day to celebrate love. This year, channel your image of Lady and the Tramp and schedule a meetup for your pup! Seattle has a surprising amount of places that often schedule breed specific meetups (such as the Dog Yard, Dogwood Park, and Tin Dog’s Brewing). And I highly recommend checking them out on our calendar, but for a day as special as Valentine’s Day, perhaps a smaller event would be more appropriate. Why don’t you try hosting a doggy dinner with a friend and their dog? You could get a sweet dog-safe meal from a local shop, or make one of your own (think meatballs-but no spaghetti or sauce).

Don’t forget that most of the fun in Lady and the Tramp was the adventures! So be sure to include a walk around your neighborhood or a trip to the park in your doggie date itinerary. Check out our dog park map to find a new place to explore. Since it is rather cold this time of year, a cute Valentine’s Day inspired outfit would be the cherry on top of the cake!

Another way to celebrate with puppy love is to surprise yours significant other with a new pup! There are so many available dogs out there who are waiting eagerly to be part of a loving family. Check out our featured adoptable pets from the Three Little Pitties Rescue or any number of animal shelters in Seattle. Click HERE to see our full list.

Whatever you decide to do with your pup for Valentine’s Day, we hope you have a marvelous time. Remember that chocolate contains theobromine, which is toxic to dogs. So be sure to store your sweets in a safe place that they cannot reach. Happy Valentine’s Day!
