7 date ideas for you and your pet in Malta

If you’re obsessed with your dog, we won’t blame you…so are we! Your pet is always there for you whenever you need a shoulder to cry on and/or an ear to listen to your daily struggles. The end of every conversation is always the same…get ready for a (very!) sloppy kiss!

It’s only fair that after all that your pet does for you, you give them some love in return…a little alone time, just the two of you! Recently, we have been noticing that more and more places are becoming pet-friendly which means that there are plenty of activities to do around the island.

Here are 7 top date ideas for you and your best friend to spend some quality time with each other.

Feeling hungry?

No problem! There’s no need to ask your partner-in-crime if he/she is hungry…they always are! Finding a place for a bite to eat is easier nowadays with more places becoming pet-friendly. Planet Hollywood Malta is a doggy-dream-come-true. Your dog will enjoy the benefit of having his/her own menu including a puppucino as a drink, and food items like finest salmon with potatoes, and super stars sardine treats, amongst others! Yum!

Plan a weekend getaway

Looking to spend a little alone time with your pup? Feeling like he/she deserves to be treated extra special this weekend? Or maybe it’s your pet’s upcoming birthday and you want to splurge on their birthday gift? Plan a weekend getaway at a pet-friendly hotel in Malta, such as at the Phoenicia Hotel (as long as your pupper is under 12kg). Your pet will be treated like royalty for the weekend and they deserve nothing less for the unconditional love that they show us on a daily basis!

Go to a dog park

It’s like taking your kids to the playground! Nothing beats fun at a dog park for your pup such as the one located in Ta’ Qali. It’s a great way for your dog to have fun and meet new friends! Plus, you can teach your dog some new tricks by manoeuvring through the park’s obstacles. Whether your dog is big or small, there are designated parks according to your dog’s size so that he/she will not feel intimidated.

Go for a hike in the countryside

Nothing beats getting some fresh air in the countryside with your best friend. There are some well-hidden spots on the island which you and your dog can enjoy and barely be disturbed by anyone such as near Mellieha, Mgarr, and some unique spots in Gozo like Ta’ Cenc Cliffs. By law, you have to keep your dog on a leash but that’s ok as there is plenty of space for them to run around while still keeping them safe.



Give a little back

Your pet is lucky to have you as their owner but some pets have been mistreated and abandoned by humans. Thankfully, organisations like Noah’s Ark are there to give out a helping hand to pooches in need. You can give out a donation to these pet sanctuaries but also help out by asking if you can take a dog out for a walk with you and your best friend. You will be helping a dog in need and your best friend will get to bond with another four-legged friend. It’s a win-win situation!

Giving back


Some things just fill your heart without trying and, we know, that your dog does exactly that! Give your pet the best kind of protection that they deserve. Take a look at our Pet Insurance here and contact us for more information.
