5 Dog Valentine's Day Dates That Won't Break The Bank
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, for some people it brings anticipation of what special surprise their loved one has planned for them. But for others, it brings that familiar sense of dread that seems to pop up every time you have an invite with a “plus 1”. I mean what do you do if your “plus 1” is your dog?
We have rounded up a list of fantastic dates for you and your dog to celebrate this Valentine’s Day together. We’ve also been sure to include dates to meet every budget, whether your pooch is a high flyer living in luxury or enjoys the simple things in life, you will find something that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.
Take your pup to the movies with Moonlight Cinema dog friendly movies! The great thing about this dog friendly outing is you can go solo with you and your pup, or you can invite other friends and make it an intimate doggy playdate at the same time. Just be sure to pop by the dog park first so your pups are not going to interrupt your movie! Moonlight Cinema operates in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. The Valentine’s Day movie is The Notebook but if this isn’t your taste, they have a great selection of movies playing throughout the week. If you’re heading to the Moonlight Cinema, jump online and book your tickets and be sure to bring something comfortable to sit on as this is an outdoor event.

SUPs For PUPs
Why not try some Stand Up Paddleboarding with your dog? If you’re already familiar with Stand Up Paddleboarding, there are many local businesses along the coast where you can hire a board and they will allow you to take your dog as well. However if you are new to this concept, then getting either a group or private lesson can be a wonderful experience for you and your dog.
SUPs for PUPs operates in the Mornington Peninsula and offers lessons starting from $120. You can book directly through their website and they also offer gift vouchers if this is a gift for a loved one.
