Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and with love in the air, it is the perfect excuse to treat your furry loved one and show them just how much you appreciate them!
Did you know that when your dog stares at you longingly it means they have a great affection for you and by looking at you intensely, it releases the love chemical oxytocin further deepening the bond? They can also intuitively interpret your facial expressions and how you use your voice to talk to them.
Here are some lovely ways to show your pet some appreciation:
Treat your pooch to a Treat
Dogs love nothing more than a tasty treat and at Simply Jasper’s we have a premium quality luxury collection boasting up to four different flavours to choose from! Each contains a selection of herbs, and is a semi-moist treat range; to intensify that oh-so-tantalizing taste.
Cosy Date Night
A cosy night in cuddled up with your pooch is one of the perfect ways to express your appreciation and affection for them. Put on your favourite feel-good movie and get those blankets to snuggle in.
Plan a Scent-Filled Walk
Changing up your usual dog walk route can give your pup a whole new experience of sights and smells and provide a burst of mental stimulation they will thank you for, not to mention great exercise too. Try a new nature trail or walk in the woods or a new part of town you haven't tried before.
A Date At The Salon
If your dog appreciates a freshen-up and groom, then a trip to the Groomer’s is worth considering as a gift! Treating your pooch to a pampering session will leave them feeling and looking great.
Make It A Playdate
If the weather is not so welcoming outside, spending quality time with your dog playing games with them is a wonderful bonding experience and will give them so much pleasure. Get out their favourite ball or toys and interact with them through play for an enriching experience for you both.
A New Toy
Speaking of toys, why not update their collection with a new toy whether it be a new plush or chew toy, hey, maybe even a Valentine’s themed one!
Finally, what about teaching your furry friend a new command or trick? They will love the mental stimulation and associated praise and you can use Jasper’s Luxury Collection treats to reward them!
