Your dog is your sweetheart, right? Here are a few ways to show you care.

Dogs make the best gift recipients on Valentine’s Day. They love whatever you give them, and because you expect nothing in return -- other than sloppy "thank you" kisses -- disappointment never ruins the day.

I found 10 super Valentine’s Day gifts for dogs from online retailers. Some are old favorites, and others just hit the market.

1. Rotterdam Hearts from Angel Pet Supplies

These sweet leather collars come in a wide variety of lengths and widths, allowing pet parents of Yorkies and Saint Bernards alike to outfit their dogs in style.

2. Double Elevated Feeder from Popware for Pets

This tough toy can go into the washing machine when necessary. It comes in three sizes and 11 colors.

Your pup can stay warm while showing his or her love for you in this cool and cozy sweater, made with 100-percent wool and plant dyes, and available in xx-small through xxx-large. Bonus: Chilly Dog follows Fair Trade guidelines.

5. Spray-N-Play Cleansing Spritz from Kiehl's

What dog wouldn't love fewer baths as a gift? This "waterless shampoo" cleans your pup's coat and skin without leaving behind irritating residue, and its chamomile extract calms and provides comfort. 

6. Luv-A-Pet Bachelor Tee from PetSmart

Share this image

The company's Luv-A-Pet line features toys and clothes, including this fun cotton-polyester tee in sizes x-small through large. Bonus: 10 percent of the purchase price goes to PetSmart Charities.

7. I Love My Dog Treats from True Treats Bakery

These tasty dog treats come by the dozen and feature only wholesome ingredients: whole grains, whole oats, oat flour, pure pumpkin flesh, freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese, organic eggs, fresh water, and canola oil. Orders are baked fresh, then shipped. (If you prefer grain-free products, give one of these treats instead.)

8. RedDingo QR Tag from PetHub

Tags such as these combine style with the ability to help your dog get home if ever lost. The finder simply scans the code with a smart phone to see an online pet profile with your contact information.

9. Marimekko Doggielounge from Fatboy

Share this image

Your dog gets a cool new bed, and you save on cleaning time because the nylon fabric repels dirt and moisture -- just wipe clean with a damp cloth. It measures 32 inches wide by 24 inches deep and comes in a black print, too.

10. Your time

All of the above are great ways to pamper your pup, but if funds are low, consider taking the afternoon off from work for a special outing. Pack treats, water, and favorite toys, then hit the dog park for an extended play date. If you need help finding a dog park, download the Dog Park Finder Plus app from Tech Wanderings
