KALANIANAOLE HIGHWAY (KHNL) -- Millions of single people own dogs in this country and this year, it's perfectly acceptable to date your dog on Valentine's Day.

If you don't have anyone to shop for this Valentine's Day, you might not be out of luck.

Man's best furry friends are always up for getting spoiled and now there are stores catering to the deepest desires of your furry canine companion.

Renee Iseke is the boutique owner. "I think it's actually sweeter for a guy to think of your dog and get something for the dog instead of the usual chocolate and things like that and flowers," she said.

Boutiques like Bark Avenue in Honolulu have everything a dog has ever dreamed of and more.

Their fresh baked biscuits and treats make for a Valentine's Day meal for two.

"Right now for the Valentines anything with the heart for the girls anything in pink, pink is always popular," Iseke said.

If you plan on getting dressed up for the occasion, you and your furry friend can get matching outfits.

"Especially the little one, she gets chilly so she likes to put on clothes and she likes to feel dressed up," Iseke said

Some dog owners are taking the trend even further by purchasing all kinds of holiday themed toys. The boutique even carries doggie goggles, called Doggles.

"We're constantly looking for new toys for the store too because dogs get tired of the same toy so they need variety," Iseke said.

If you own a dog, you don't have to look any further for the perfect Valentine.

"I think my husband is my Valentine, but they are also, they are the canine Valentine," Iseke said.
