Happy National Dog Day to you and your dog! This day is celebrated yearly on August 26. All dogs are celebrated no matter what their size, breed, fur color, or any other difference. At our house we celebrate every day, but we might celebrate a bit more today. I’ve got some great tips if you are looking for ideas.
7 Ways To Celebrate National Dog Day
1. Start The Day With A Walk
At our house we start every day with a walk but on special days, we often take a longer walk. You can also drive to a new spot or park and take a walk there. Your pup would love to take a special walk with you to honor her day.
2. Make Your Dogs Meal Extra Special
After walking, a dog will be ready for a nice meal. We love our raw food, but it is always a welcome surprise when Mom adds in something special like a green tripe patty. They are so yummy! You can also add in some fruits, veggies, or anything your pup loves to eat but doesn’t get very often..
3. Playtime Is Bonding Time
Do you play regularly with your dog? We play with our toys a lot, but usually just us dogs. It is extra fun when Mom joins in our games. She becomes one of the pack and we just love it!
4. Snacks Are Always A Good Idea
Unless a dog is super picky like Madison, treats are always welcome. We have our treat drawer full of healthy treats. Mom keeps two or three bags open so we have a variety of treats. On National Dog Day, why not give out some extra treats, or buy some special, extra tasty new treats to celebrate?
5. Dogs Love A Good Belly Rub
Spoil your pup a bit with a real nice, long belly rub. I know I feel a belly rub always ends way too soon. Belly rubs are a simple and free way to bring joy to your pup.
6. An Ear Massage Is A Real Winner
Our long ears love a good massage, but I think any dog even with stand up ears would love some ear rub time. Ears itch and are hard for us to really get to. We always love it when Mom uses one hand on each ear and gives them a real good rub. It feels so good we often make silly noises to let Mom know it is good.
7. Have Plenty Of Cuddle And Snuggle Time
Our family is a super snuggle family and today is no different! Hugs, cuddles, and pets are the name of the game. Set aside some extra time to cuddle and snuggle with your dog in a way they love. Happy National Dog Day! Enjoy the day with your dog!
