If your dog could speak, what would they say? Whether they’d tell everyone that they’re a ‘lover not a biter’ or that they ‘ain’t too proud to beg,’ you can rest assured that Growlees has a tag that nails your beloved’s personality.
12. Lily’s Kitchen Liver Rise and Shine Treats
First of all these are organic liver dog treats, and dogs just love liver dog treats. Secondly, the packet’s pink so it’s practically Valentine’s Day themed. Bottom line: your dog will love these.
13. A Fabulous Mini-Break
Take your dog (and sure, your significant other if you like) on a mini-break to somewhere like Tal y Braich (above); a cosy stone cottage situated on a working farm in the heart of Snowdonia. Check out our guide to the best dog-friendly cottages in the UK and start planing that well-deserved break.
14. Personalised Food and Water Bowls
Class up the daily feeding routine with these simple, sophisticated ceramic bowls. The maker will emboss your pet’s name on a bone affixed to the front. You can choose black, gold, or even pink letters—perfect for a Valentine’s Day surprise.

Spoil your dog rotten this Valentine’s Day with a whole gift box from Not In The Dog House! It contains a bottle of Pawsecco (a tasty alcohol-free beverage created with the help of veterinary experts), and a selection of healthy dog treats, including dog-friendly popcorn.
16. Whistle GPS Pet Tracker & Activity Monitor
For a happy, healthy heart, your dog needs plenty of exercise. This dog fitness tracker gives detailed info on your pet’s activity level and sleep quality (it’s like a Fitbit for dogs)! Clip the water-resistant case to your dog’s collar to track all their adventures. Plus, the GPS functionality gives you peace of mind with the ability to track your dog’s location via an app.
17. Alpaca Dog Jumper
Seven times stronger and three times warmer than merino wool, Alpaca wool also contains microscopic air pockets which help create a lovely lightweight yet super warm jumper! If you purchase any jumpers from Alqo Wasi’s range you’ll also be helping to support craftswomen in vulnerable areas of Peru. Win-win.
18. Furbo and Petcube
Tech toys are always a good idea! Especially ones that let you check on your pets when you aren’t home, and better yet, ones that feed them treats when you’re away. Both, the Furbo and the Petcube allow you to peek in on your pet via video, speak to them with two-way audio, and even give them a treat. Unfortunately if your dog suffers from separation anxiety or severe panic while you’re away, these products are likely to make your problem worse.
19. Valentine’s Bow Tie
Adorn your furry special someone with this oh-so-adorable bow tie and everyone who sets eyes on them will fall in love this Valentine’s Day.
20. Portable Water Bottle/Bowl
Whether you’re walking for five minutes or five miles, hydration is important. This nifty water bottle transforms into a handy bowl, so it’s just what you need for impromptu water breaks.
21. A Rover Dog Sitter
Of course the main thing your dog wants this Valentine’s Day is to hang out with you! But if you have a hot date and your special someone can’t join, don’t worry—you can find the perfect local sitter to spend quality time with your dog on Rover.com. As well as wonderful dog walkers there are plenty of sitters who provide dog boarding, so you’re bound to find your dog’s perfect match!
