If your ESA has not known the feeling of pampered luxury, then maybe you should give it a little time off to feel exactly what first class living is all about. There is an entire industry of pet-friendly hotels that are ready to provide a decadent experience for you and your pet. You guys may not want to come back! These hotels come complete with room service, pet massages, and other amenities that may leave you a bit jealous if they were all listed! Pet pampering is a thing these days so why not give back to your furry friend this Valentines day!
In terms of diet, our pets are just like us. They have foods that they should only eat once in a while. Those foods are usually the creamiest, most luscious, tasty foods available. Well, Valentine’s Day is the time to splurge! If you feel like staying in, a first-class dinner may be just the activity for the evening. Planning a fancy feast in for you and your pet could also give you a reason to look more deeply into their dietary needs. Cooking with your pet is also a great way to relax and bond with your furry friend. Consult with your veterinarian for some great options that will probably lead to some great research as well.
Taking in a great movie that fits in with the personality of you and your pet is a great way to cap off a night of romantic adventures. Although, you can also do a binge with pizza and popcorn if you have some catching up to do on your media! The secret to success here is to remember the personality traits that brought you and your pet together. Are you both adventurers or romantics? Do you love living the fast life or taking it slow? Get movies that celebrate your common characteristics, and you are sure to have a bonding experience that will give you memories for a lifetime.
These are just a few ideas for the Valentine’s Day holiday – use your imagination for many more. In conclusion, no one knows the relationship between you and your pet better than (you guessed it) you and your pet. Sometimes the best ideas come from your peers. Don’t be afraid to ask other ESA owners how they celebrate with their favorite pets!
