August 26th – National Dog Day

National Dog DayHappy National Dog Day! Created by the National Dog Day Foundation, their motto is “Saving 10,000 Dogs – One Day at a Time”. The first goal of National Dog Day is to honor dogs and all they do for us. Not only do they give us love and companionship, but they also provide many services from being a watchdog and rescuer to helping out the disabled.

National Dog DayThe second goal of National Dog Day is to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. The National Dog Day Foundation’s aspiration is to rescue 10,000 dogs a year. If you don’t have a dog, consider adopting one from a shelter today. Go to your local dog shelter or check out Pet Finder. Please do not purchase dogs from unethical backyard breeders and pet stores – their puppies typically come from puppy mills.

Don’t know your dog’s birthday? Well here’s a great substitute birth date for your dog! What dog wouldn’t want a summertime birthday!

Put in an extra 15 minutes of fetch. Provide extra belly rubs and doggie massages! If your dog enjoys the groomer, take him to a spa appointment there. Buy your dog a new toy or treats. The list of fun things to do with your dog is endless, but most important of all is for you to spend some extra time with your dog and appreciate all that your dog does for you every day!

Valentine's Day invincible dog toy Invincibles Plush Dog Toy
This is an great tough dog toy! We tested it, via Bailey, a 55lb Boxer. Her parents told us it was the most durable “made for dogs” toy Bailey’s ever had and the longest a toy like this has remained in one piece. Typically, Bailey is able to take out the stuffing and eyes within the first 15 minutes of playing. Her’s parents gave the Invincibles Plush Dog Toy the thumbs up!
Kong The Kong Classic – Food Stuffed Toy
This is the gold standard for food stuffed dog toys and has been recommended by vets and trainers more than any othtremely tough for long chew sessions. To keep the chewing session longer, put some peanut butter or soft dog food in the Kong and then freeze it.
Happy Hearts Martingale Dog Collar Happy Hearts – Martingale Dog Collar
This Happy Hearts Martingale Dog Collar by Country Brook Design will give your dog that loving style (also comes in a variety of other colors and patterns). A martingale dog collar provides more control over your dog without the choking effect of other collars. It’s made with two loops. When the dog tries to pull, the tension on the leash pulls the small loop taut, which makes the large loop smaller and tighter on the neck. The collar is comfortably loose when your dog is not pulling.
Slo-Bowl Slo-Bowl Slow Feeder Dog Bowl
Did you just give your dog some kibble and seconds later it’s gone? Are you wondering if he inhaled it? Alas, there’s a great solution – we fell in love with the Slo-Bowl Slow Feeder, which will slow down your dog from eating too fast by turning meal time into a game.
