Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and dog pawrents may be wondering what kinds of dates their precious fur babies can enjoy too. There are plenty of options for couples and their doggos, whether you’re looking for a dose of nature, an evening out on town, or a lazy night in. Check out some of our favorite dog-friendly date ideas below!

Drive-in Movie

Drive-in theaters may be a dying breed, but they’re great dog-friendly date options if you’re lucky enough to live near one. Cuddle under cozy blankets inside the car or under the stars for a picture-perfect night with your significant other and your furry BFF. 

Netflix and Chill

For those canine companions who prefer to be couch potatoes, staying in is an easy way to include them on date night. Make your night in easy for you and your pup by using a real grass pee pad like DoggieLawn. An indoor dog bathroom is ideal for those colder nights when hunkering down is the best option for everyone! 

Picnic in the Park

Lunching at the park isn’t just a nice afternoon for you and your date, it’s also a fun time for your fur baby! Savor a lazy afternoon under the sun by rolling around in some fresh grass and snacking on your favorite treats. Be sure to bring along your dog’s favorite goodies for a casual date that your pooch can enjoy, too! 

Dog-Friendly Brewery

Looking to share a cold brew with a special someone? Luckily, many breweries are pup-friendly and have plenty of indoor and outdoor space that both you and your pooch can appreciate. And because there are often other pups around, going to a dog-friendly joint is also a great opportunity for your fur ball to socialize with other doggos and people! 

Puppuccino Date

Add a little fun to your coffee date by bringing along your fur ball and treating them to a puppuccino. After all, your wing-dog deserves a yummy treat for helping you and your date warm up to each other! Enjoy a conversation at the cafe or take your drinks to-go for a walk around town.  

A Woof-mantic Walk

Who says that walks on the beach should only be between two humans? Love-struck couples can visit a dog-friendly beach for a romantic stroll while their fur baby runs to their heart’s content. If the mountains are more your style, hiking is another option for partners and their pups.
