What a great opportunity to spoil the loves of your life with Valentine’s Day Gifts. Get inspired and tempted by some of our gift ideas.
A few of these gifts are sponsored as I received them for free to try or give away and this post includes affiliate links but I have only included things I have or would like and that I think might be great for Dog Lovers. Buying through my links does not cost you extra.
Is your Dog Your Valentine this year? I know that Kilo gives me loads of love and has some advantages over my husband. Just kidding, my hubby is a great Valentine too but see here our post on why dogs can be better than boyfriends.
Valentine’s Day Gifts for Dogs
I like buying and receiving gifts for Kilo the Pug. While you should never give your dog a box of chocolates, there are still plenty of ways to show how much you care. Kilo basically likes Treats, Food, and Toys.
Bullwrinkles Bully Sticks and Barnsdale Farms Treats #sponsored
Kilo absolutely LOVES Bullwrinkles Bully Sticks and Barnsdale Farms Treats. Luckily for him, they often sponsor our rescue efforts and send him samples.
You can enter to win a gorgeous Gift Basket or a C$25 VISA Gift Card until February 14th US and Canada and spoil your dog.
Help A Rescue Dog and Feel the Love
You Can help a rescue by adding to or bidding on a wide range of great items on Auction 4 Pet Supplies or shopping on sites that give back. Every year, we get calendars from Bocker Labradoodle, the St John Ambulance Therapy Dogs and Igor Pug that donate to charity. We also buy cards from the Ontario SPCA.
You can also Watch and Share our new “Forever” video celebrating rescues dogs past and present (including my little Kilo). Not only is the video sweeter than Valentine’s candy but we’ll donate revenue from YouTube on the video to two rescues over the next 4 weeks. Your dog might enjoy cuddling up and watching too.
Make something for your loved one this holiday – perhaps a tasty treat?
Check out all the Dog Licks Recipes on our YouTube Playlist. Kilo sure enjoys taste testing these!
Dogs love squeaky toys, but even the gentlest chewers will eventually destroy the squeaker. Grab a needle and thread and some new squeakers and reinvigorate your dog’s old favourite toys. Your ears might suffer but your dog will be thrilled!
This electronic game or puzzle looks so fun and it even gives treats. I think Kilo would love it and I like to keep him mentally and physically stimulated.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Dog Lovers
Close behind treats and food on our list has to be a Furbo for me and Kilo. I travel a lot and can see and talk to Kilo when I am travelling and toss him treats. We were given one last year and you can see our full review HERE. He loves the treats and contact and it makes me feel great! I have it aimed at his fave sofa in our front living room where he sits and snoozes most of the day between walks, play and shouting at the mailman. I can calm him down or distract him if he is barking, even thousands of miles away. I always check Furbo is connected and full of treats before I leave on a trip.

Vacuum, Hair and Stain Removers
My husband would say a hair remover or vaccuum would be even more useful than the BarkBath with all Kilo’s black hair everywhere on our white sofas. In fact we even looked at some new ones with Kilo the Pug at Canadian Tire over the weekend.
Car Seat Cover
I was lucky enough to win a 4Knines Car Seat Cover last year. What an amazing gift. My husband is happy as he likes to keep his newish car spotless. Our trips with Kilo in his car to the monthly Pug Grumble and to the Ravine will now be much cleaner and better for him and less stressful for me.
Clothing, Accessories and Personalized Products
Personalized T-shirts and bags
We love personalizing gifts! Talent Hounds has made custom t-shirts and tote bags. These are all available through a variety of sources including Vistaprint if you supply the artwork. Let us know if you need any help.
Mugs, Cups, Water Bottles, Bottle Stopper
How cute is this little guy, plus I like the wine that he is sitting on.
Doggy Boot Scrapers
With winter comes snow and mud. I was given a fabulous boot or shoe scraper that sits by the front door so I looked around and found one on Amazon you can buy here through my link.
This one is cute and practical! Door stoppers are really useful for keeping pets in safe areas, and this one has a great quote too: “A house is not a home without a dog”.
Plush, 3D Tribute Models or Pet Rescue Rocks.
A customized plush or miniature in the image of a dog can make a wonderful gift. I would love a plush of Kilo from Cuddle Clones or another supplier. It is really hard to find plushes of black pugs. I also love my Pet Rescue Rocks modelled on Kilo the Pug. I gave a Fishstick one to his parents too. We will be selling kits by next Christmas.
Make Your Own DIY Gifts
Besides the Pet Rocks and Bow Ties mentioned above, Check out our tips on making your own Treat Jars and Cookies. Kilo gave his sweetheart Ms. Charmin and her Mom a beautiful treat jar with her favorite liver treats.
Personalized Paintings, Portraits, Cards, Photo Sessions, Videos
I think a photo session with a local pet photographer, or a portrait by someone like our talented friend Sadie who painted one of Kilo which I LOVE, can all make wonderful gifts. Or a tribute video like our Forever one above and ones we have done for Smiley and Bocker.
A beautiful, unique and symbolic bracelet that memorializes the relationship between a mom and a dog who has passed on. Each piece features the following elements, all designed to honor the memory of her beloved pup. Plus they donate to rescues.
Dog Books By and For Dog Lovers
Books about dogs or featuring dogs can make amazing gifts. Check out our lists below to find the perfect choice and don’t miss the new book about our beautiful rescue pal Smiley the Blind Therapy Dog.
Tickets to Events
A ticket for the annual BlogPaws Conference would also be a wonderful Gift for this particular Dog Lover.
