Valentine’s Day — a holiday reserved for chocolates, flowers, and curated (read: inflated) menus. But more than anything, it’s a day dedicated to showing the one you love how much they mean to you. While some may claim that that person is their significant other, we know deep down that our true loves walk on four feet.

In fact, it’s science: Dog behaviorist Dr. Patricia McConnell reports that dogs feel a surge of oxytocin  (often called the “cuddle hormone”) when they interact with people. John Bradshaw, researcher and author of  Dog Sense, even suggests that during playtime, dogs’ oxytocin quintuples and their endorphin and dopamine double.

We love our dogs almost as much as we love spoiling them, and February 14 is the perfect day to do both. Here are few ways to keep the tradition going.

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
