Got no plans for Valentine’s Day? Feeling lonely and blue about not spending it with that special someone? No need to worry! The best suitor in town is sitting right next to you: your beloved pet! There is no one better to spend the most romantic day of the year with than the love of your life. Of course, you’ll need to plan something special so you can tell them how much you love them. Need inspiration?
Here are some ideas on how to spend Valentine’s Day with your pet!
Go For a Walk:
If you have a dog, it is guaranteed that they love long walks on the beach, or wherever for that matter. A nice, peaceful walk will set the mood for what is bound to be a magical evening. Grab your best leash and go for a walk together in your local park, the beach, or even around the block. Who cares as long as you’re spending time together? You can take the time to sit on a park bench and you two can watch the sunset. If your pooch is feeling restless, take them to an off lead area where they can mingle with other pups and go on several mini dates all at once. Just try not to get too jealous!
Go Out For Dinner:
You don’t need a romantic candle lit dinner to enjoy Valentine’s Day. Grab your pup and take them out for a night on the town. There are many different restaurants that are pet-friendly where you and your date can both have a good time. Head down to Republica in St Kilda where after a yummy meal and live entertainment, you two can go on that romantic walk on the beach. Visit Madam Brussels in the CBD, where you can treat yourself to a little cocktail and your pooch can strike a pose on the turf. Or if you want something more laid back and a bit…foxy, pop into The Fox Hotel in Collingwood. Enjoy craft beer, live music, vegetarian options and, if the weather is feeling generous, you and your dog can enjoy each other’s company out back in the courtyard.
Catch a Movie:
The old school date idea, cuddle up with each other and watch a movie! Set the scene at home by dimming the lights and spreading out some blankets and pillows on the floor. Pick out your romantic drama, or a good old rom-com, and you and your pet can watch it together. Or if you want more romantic scenery, you and your pooch can watch a movie under the stars at one of the many outdoor cinemas around Victoria. Have a romantic picnic at Moonlight Cinema, where you can lie on the grass with your date and treat yourself to some chocolate. Remember, chocolate is not for dogs! Or get in your car and head to the drive-in cinemas at Coburg. Not only can you and your pup cuddle with each other in the back seat, but there is also a Food Truck Festival happening for you to grab a simple, yet yummy dinner.
Who says Valentine’s Day is overrated? Your date is not only adorable, but they’re also a good listener and love making you smile. Your pet will make Valentine’s Day, and every day after that, a night to remember.
