Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and you may be struggling to figure out what to do with your special someone and having a dog in the mix can sometimes make things even more complicated! We wanted to give you a few suggestions for a date night or weekend with your two and four legged loved one. We've compiled our lists using crew feedback and a great resource called www.bringfido.com.
Dinner at a Dog Friendly Restaurant
With the ever growing population of pet owners, more and more restaurants are offering dog friendly seating! Many restaurants even have dog bowls and some even have speciality menu items just for the pups! Look for The Ark sponsored bowls at many local restaurants and snap a photo and use #thearklovespets and @thearkpetspaandhotel for a chance to be featured on our social media

Staycation At A Dog Friendly Hotel
Sometimes you just need a night or weekend away from the house, but you may not want to fool with packing for a long vacation and spending a big chunk of that hard earned paycheck. If this sounds like you, a “staycation” may be a good alternative. Some hotels are even dog friendly so you don’t have to leave Fido at home. Buyer beware, while they may be dog friendly, they may charge an extra fee to bring your pup. Weigh the pros and cons first!

Go On A Scenic Drive With The Dog
Sometimes there is nothing quite like turning off the phone and going for a long slow drive through the country or through the mountains. You don’t even have to know where you’re going! This can be a relaxing quiet time for a long conversation with your loved one. The dog will also enjoy all the new sights and smells of driving through an unfamiliar area.
