5. Festive Doggy Tank
Dress your dog up for the big day in this soft cotton tank that was made with love in the U.S.A.

Even if it’s late, you’ll be ready for next year.
6. Pink Paw Print Blanket
This adorable pink number is perfect for all the small doggies in your life, and one-day shipping is an option, so a beloved pooch could be snuggling in this soft fleecy number very soon.

7. Adoption T-Shirt
Give the dog adoption advocates in your life a way to wear their love this Valentine’s Day with this t-shirt from Zazzle.com. The site lets you know when you need to order by in order to have your gift by Valentine’s Day, and if you don’t like this design there are a ton of others to choose from. You can even make your own, or just pick a different colour for this design. $24.95 at Zazzle
8.Heart Print Bowl
Let your dog lap up some love this V-day with this adorable ceramic bowl. The tasteful neutral tones will fit into most kitchen decor styles while still incorporating a bit of a playful element into the design. It cleans up quickly, won’t harbour bacteria like some plastic bowls, and usually ships the next business day.
9. A Loving Donation to A Rescue
If chocolates and roses don’t seem like the right gift for the dog lover you’re romancing, why not make a donation in their honour this Valentine’s Day? START Rescue in California will send a Valentine’s Day card for you when you donate in someone’s honour, as will the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society, which used it’s own adoptable pets as Valentine card models (order by February 10th). Check if your local rescues have a similar program, and if they don’t you can always make a donation and make your own Valentine.
10. A Night of Dog Sitting
This Valentine’s Day why not give the gift of time? If you know a couple who’ve recently brought home a puppy, then you know a couple who probably won’t be going out for a romantic dinner (unless they want to come home to pee on the floor). Give the gift of love on February 14th and let someone you know take a break from puppy parenting. It won’t cost you a thing, and you get to play with an adorable pup — it’s a win-win for everyone.
