Guest Post by: Jamie Anderson With all the buzz about Valentine's Day this week, don’t forget to give your beloved pooch some love! Here are five things you can do to show Fido you care: 1. Take a long romantic walk Set aside a day to spend on the trails, or try out a new route. Fingers crossed, the weather will be nice enough that your pup will appreciate the change in your normal walking routine. If you live in the area, Uxbridge, ON, is the trail capital of Canada, and offers beautiful rural scenery for those looking to escape the city. (Just make sure to dress for the weather!) 2. Weekend getaway If you’ve got a dog that loves to get in the car and go, book into a pet-friendly hotel for the weekend. Some hotels provide dog treats and even beds for your furry friend. Enjoy a couple of days exploring the smells of a new city! Visit Bringfido.com for a directory of pet-friendly hotels across Canada, and be sure to read the reviews. 3. Who wants a cookie? More and more restaurants and cafés are allowing your pet to join you for lunch. While you warm up with a hot coffee, let your pooch nibble on a biscuit. This is the perfect way to let your furry socialite see what it’s like inside those buildings she’s typically tied up outside of. Bringfido.com lists pet-friendly restaurants across Canada, like Toronto’s Williams Fresh Café. 4. DIY dog spa If you’ve got a doggie diva at home who is looking a little winter weary, a do-it-yourself dog wash is an ideal gift. Wash away all the slush and gunk, and pamper him with a trim and nail clip. Try Wag & Wash in Riverview, NB, which provides everything you need—including cologne! 5. Movie date If you’ve got a homebody pet like me, your pup might prefer a relaxing night on the couch (or on the bed!). Snuggle up with your furry companion, turn on a puppy love story like Lady and the Tramp, and share a bowl of unbuttered, unsalted popcorn! How do you show your pooch you care?
