12 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Dogs (They’re Vegan!)

This Valentine's Day, celebrate the love you have for your most treasured partner: your dog.

Looking to celebrate a vegan Valentine’s Day with your loved one this year? Lockdown measures may have made things a tad bit tricky. But you can still commemorate the love you have for your better half. 

After all, your partner likely stuck it out with you through a hectic 2020. Your significant other was there to watch an endless stream of romcom reruns with you, helped you eat delicious vegan pizza straight out of the box, and patiently sat with you through *all* of those Zoom calls. 

And the only thing they asked for in return was a good ol’ belly rub—and some treats. 

This year, celebrate the love you have for your most treasured partner: your dog, of course. (Sorry, boyfriend.) We’ve put together a list of some of the best vegan Valentine’s Day gifts for dogs. 

And if you don’t have a beloved pooch to gift any of the cruelty-free treats from our roundup below—consider gifting one of them (or make a monetary donation) to a rescue shelter in your area.

Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts for Dogs That You Can Make

If you don’t want to buy vegan Valentine’s Day gifts for dogs, try making one! There are a handful of kitchen gadgets that could make whipping up these delicious-looking treats (seriously, they look so good you just might wind up eating them yourself!) even easier. 

A non-stick baking sheet is always useful. And for mixing all of the ingredients up, you might want to opt for a blender. Lastly, to cut the iconic dog bone shape to perfection, snag some of these dog bone cookie cutters.

A special note on peanut butter: A favorite flavor for many dogs, many of the below recipes call for peanut butter as an ingredient. However, just ensure the peanut butter you’re using does NOT contain xylitol. Xylitol is a naturally occurring alcohol that’s commonly found in plants. And, according to the VCA Animal Hospital, it’s “extremely” toxic to dogs. Even when consumed in small amounts, xylitol can cause hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, in dogs. This can result in liver failure, seizures, and even death.

Their flavoring is made possible by a flavor-packed concoction, including maple syrup, applesauce, and oat flour. They’re so delicious-looking, your dog is sure to want seconds.
