PetSmart® Encourages Pet Parents to Show Extra Love to Their Furry Friends on Valentine’s Day

PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On a day typically reserved for showing love to significant others, why
not show a little extra love and attention towards your pet – that loyal
companion who doles out unconditional love and affection all year long.


“No longer is Valentine’s Day only about expressing our love and
appreciation for the humans in our life, it’s about including the other
important family members, our pets,” Eran Cohen, chief customer
experience officer, PetSmart said. “After all, who is more loving and
loyal than our furry companions?”

To help celebrate, PetSmart is sharing some great ways to shower your
best friend with love this Valentine’s Day.

Delight Your Pet With a New Toy: Demonstrate your bond with your
pet with a plush toy from the Martha Stewart Pets® Collection that says “Purrfect
” or an “I
Dig You
” bone. Make your love go further by giving a gift that gives
back! Exclusive to PetSmart, the Luv-A-Pet™ Pound Puppies line
designates 10 percent of the proceeds from item sales to be donated to
PetSmart CharitiesTM in the U.S. and PetSmart CharitiesTM
of Canada to help pets in need.

Treat Them to Something Sweet: BLUE
BuffaloTM Be Mine Bars

fruits and veggies, make a great healthy treat. For those who like to
bake a little love into their own treats, PetSmart is sharing an
easy-to-execute Pupcakes recipe using Milk-Bone® dog biscuits. Click here

Keep Our Pets Kiss-ably Fresh: It’s the month of love, and
also National Pet Dental Health Month! On the day where extra kisses are
in order, ensure your pet’s teeth are clean and breath is fresh with Greenies®
Dental Chews

Show Off Your Love with Home Pet Décor: Pets love a new bed to
snuggle up in, especially one shaped like a donut!

from Martha Stewart Pets. For the DIY-er, PetSmart is offering a
fun pet-themed Valentine’s Day photo
frame project

Outfit Your Pup in Style: With an array of adorable tees, tanks
and dresses to choose from with fun slogans like, “Cutie
” and “Love,”
dogs will look festive for their Valentine’s Day romp in the park, trip
to the office or photo ops worthy of social sharing. For pups that
prefer a more understated approach, a pink and red polka
dot collar
from the Martha Stewart Pets Collection makes a beautiful
yet practical gift.

Treat Your Pet to a Spa Day: PetSmart salons offer a range of
indulgences perfect for pampering your pet. In addition to refresher
services like grooming and pawdicures, pet parents can also treat their
pets to fun, decorative Pet
