It’s the month of love and here at Dogtopia, we are celebrating in partnership with Dig, a dating app for dog lovers! Dig makes it easy to connect with other pet parents while ensuring they will be as crazy about your dog as you are. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, what better time to share a few creative and paw-approved date ideas, whether it be for a fun first date or a date night with your special someone. 

Make Something Sweet 

There is nothing better than homemade sweet treats and what better than a creative date night activity than making your own desserts! For pet parents, your options are endless including ice cream with fun toppings, a fresh batch of brownies, or a fruit smoothie. However, these options aren’t always dog friendly. An idea for a crafty night at home could include making peanut butter treats your pup will love with your date! (Note: Be sure to use a natural peanut butter containing no xylitol which is incredibly toxic to dogs.) For a list of peanut butter dog treats you can make with your special someone, click here. Your dog will love the aroma, the taste, and the person who helped make them! 

A Night Out on the Town 

Dating can be intimidating, but dinner dates at dog-friendly spots around town are always a good idea. Dig has an entire section within their app dedicated to finding local, dog-friendly attractions titled, “Places We Dig”. These spots are already pup-approved and great for a date night out. While inside the app, users will notice Dogtopia locations, too! If you are looking to meet up with someone you recently met via Dig, Dogtopia locations are considered safe spaces and welcome all Dig users to meet for the first time IRL (in real life). You might be surprised at what you find when you open yourself to love! 

Try Something New 

Whether it be a new skill or adventure, trying something brand new can be a memorable date idea. Not only does the Dig app include dog-friendly restaurants and businesses, but it also includes dog-friendly events. Some of these events may include local pup meetups or speed dating groups! You never know where you will find your special someone. 

Beyond the first date stage and want a day without the dogs? Dogtopia daycare has locations all over North America and with a caring team of Canine Coaches, your pup will be in good hands so you can enjoy your time getting to know your special someone. To find a location nearest you, click here.
