Show your pet some extra love this Valentine’s Day

With the growing trend to treat our pets on Valentine’s Day, Pets at Home has revealed what it has on offer for our four-legged friends, including a number of special gifts and experiences.

From a luxury spa treatment at The Groom Room – with £1 from every treatment going to help an animal in need through the Pets at Home Foundation – to a heart-warming playlist packed full of pet-related love songs to listen to together, the pet care specialist has everything you need to make your companion feel loved and appreciated this Valentine’s Day.

Claire Gavin, Director of Creative Development & Innovation at Pets at Home, said: “Our pets are such important members of our family so it’s natural that we all want to show them how much they mean to us. There are so many ways you can do this, from spending time cuddling on the sofa and listening to soothing music together to treating them to a new toy or treat.

“This year, our Valentine’s Day offering is all about giving pet owners the opportunity to make their pet part of the family celebrations and marking the unique bond we have with them.”

To help show some extra love to rescue pets across the country, it is also encouraging animal lovers to donate what they can to the Pets at Home Foundation when purchasing items instore or online from 7th– 14th February.

Pets at Home’s Valentine’s Day gifts and experiences include: 

Turn up the pet-related love songs

Pets at Home has launched the latest playlist in its series on Spotify, Verity’s Valentine’s Mixtape.

The free playlist is packed full of pet-related love songs such as Puppy Love, You’re My Best Friend, Cuddle Up and Run To You and is perfect to sit down and listen to together, or have on in the background when playing – both great activities to help strengthen the bond with your pet.

Pamper four-legged friends with a ‘Wuff You’ spa treatment at The Groom Room

Regular grooming is an essential part of caring for your dog’s health and wellbeing, particularly during the colder months when there’s even more muddy puddles to play in and grit which can affect their paws.

This year, in addition to your pet’s regular groom, you can add on the ‘Wuff You’ spa treatment as a perfect treat to help your pet feel and look their best this Valentine’s Day.

Available throughout February, for just £9 extra per dog with any grooming service, the ‘Wuff You’ Valentine’s spa treatment includes:

  • Raspberry Romance shampoo and spritz
  • SPA blueberry facial
  • Application of teeth clean gel and fresh breath foam
  • Paw and nose balm
  • A complimentary bandana* so they’ll leave dressed to impress

£1 from every package will also go to a pet in need through the Pets at Home Foundation, the biggest supporter of rescue centres in the UK with a mission to create a better world for pets and the people who love them.

To book your dog’s groom, pop into your local salon to make an appointment or book online at www.petsathome.com/groomroom.

Treat them to a special gift

For owners looking to treat their pet to the perfect present this Valentine’s Day, Pets at Home has a whole host of gifts available for cats, dogs and small animals including

DOGS

Urban Pup Fluffy Terry Dog Bathrobe, available in pink or blue – £20

Keep your pup snug in this super-soft bathrobe. Available in small, medium, large and extra large, it’s perfect for wrapping up after a long cold walk.

Top tip: For all fashion items, allow your dog to wear them for short intervals at a time to make sure they are comfortable. If at any time your pet seems unhappy, either swap it for something a little more subtle, such as a stylish collar or charm, or treat them to an alternative Valentine’s gift instead.

Topped with a tail-swishing swirl of flavoured yoghurt frosting, these tasty ‘woofins’ are the perfect gift for your four-legged friend this Valentine’s Day.

Pets at Home Diamante Cat Collar Pink – £5

Treat your cat to this stylish pink diamante collar, featuring an added heart-shaped charm and adjustable strap for a snug fit.

Top tip: A cat’s collar should always fit comfortably, so make sure you can pass two fingers between the collar and neck, and check carefully under the collar for redness or hair loss caused by an ill-fitting collar.
