9. Cold Weather Must-Have’s

If your dog can tolerate booties, these would be a great gift for any Minnesotan pup! Other winter must-have’s like coats, paw balm, as well V2 Googles for winter sport dogs, are also great gifts – even if they don’t fit in the stocking! If you want to skip ordering online to ensure you choose the right size gear, check out CoPilot Dog Outfitters in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis.

2. Dental Products

Not only is it Valentine’s Day, but February is also Pet Dental Health month! So, give your pet the gift of a healthy mouth! We highly recommend investing in a toothbrush and dog toothpaste (DO NOT use human toothpaste as these products often include ingredients that are toxic to dogs). Chewing is also great for your dog’s teeth and we recommend getting “tooth-friendly” products that have been approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC). See their list of recommended products here! To learn more about establishing an at-home dental care routine for your dog from our Dentistry & Oral Surgery Service, click here.

We hope these ideas give you inspiration for the purrfect gift for your furry Valentine! In the comments below, tell us what you got your pet for Valentine’s Day!
