Claire Gavin, Director of Creative Development and Innovation at Pets at Home, said: “Our pets are such important members of our family so it’s natural that we all want to show them how much they mean to us.
“There are so many ways you can do this, from spending time cuddling on the sofa and listening to soothing music together to treating them to a new toy or treat.
“This year, our Valentine’s Day offering is all about giving pet owners the opportunity to make their pet part of the family celebrations and marking the unique bond we have with them.”
