Your Dog is the Perfect Valentine

Someone once said that a dog is a “man’s best friend.” There are countless reasons why this is true.

Dogs are loyal, devoted and trustworthy companions. Their friendship is unconditional and their allegiance is unquestionable.

So, when you think of Valentine’s Day this year, don’t forget your four-legged friend. Because he already has so many incredible qualities, your dog is just as capable as any human being of giving you all the love and attention you need this holiday.

If you’re still not convinced that your pet has what it takes to be the best Valentine’s date you’ve ever had, The Barking Lot came with some pretty convincing reasons below.

They Don’t Have Great Expectations

Let’s face it. Most pets are simply happy with food, water and their favorite chew toy. You don’t have to get all dressed up or prepare a gourmet meal to please your dog. Spending time playing fetch, taking a walk in the park or cuddling on the sofa, is worth more to him than your weight in gold.

They Won’t Stand You Up

At some point in our lives, we’ve all been stood up by someone we know. And it’s just not cool. Maybe you felt like that person just didn’t value your time. But with your dog, you don’t have to worry about him being inconsiderate or taking you for granted. You never have to question his whereabouts or whether or not he feels like showing up – because he’s always there. He comes as soon as you call. That kind of loyalty is hard to find. Especially in a human being.

They Won’t Judge You for Your Looks

You know how it goes. You want to make a good first impression. Maybe you go out and buy a new outfit. You spend hours showering, getting ready and getting dressed. And the hair. It has to be just right. In the end, you’ve spent more time getting ready for the date than the actual date itself. And to be honest, what you wear doesn’t guarantee a love connection.

Who needs the headache?

Hanging out with your dog on Valentine’s Day removes all of the unnecessary stress. You get to wear whatever you want and your pet loves you no matter how you look. Can’t ask for a better partner than that!

They’re Actually Pretty Funny

We’ve all done it. Pretending to laugh at someone else’s bad jokes. You know it and they know it.

It’s just awkward for everyone involved.

Why not just skip the rehearsed theatrics and spend a little quality time with your pet? Whether he drags his feet when he doesn’t want to walk or does somersaults to get your attention, your pooch can be a barrel of laughs – even when he’s not trying to be. Some of the best moments are the ones not planned. You can definitely count on your pet for that.

No Need to Stress Over a Breakup

We don’t have to explain why this is the worst part of being in a relationship. The inevitable break up. Sometimes it happens on the one day you’re actually supposed to celebrate love.

But that won’t ever happen with your dog. He won’t ever get tired of you. You don’t have to worry about him leaving you or seeing someone else when he’s supposed to be with you. He’s not going anywhere – arguably one of the best parts of your relationship with your pet.


Because your love your pet so much and they are your favorite Valentine, stop in to the Barking Lot to pick up their favorite treat.  We have many food and treat options to choose from!
