National Dog Week is the last week in September. It was founded in 1928 by World War I veteran and canine advocate, Captain William Judy to honor all the ways dogs serve humans and to promote responsible dog ownership.
Celebrating National Dog Week is a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of dogs, while having fun and learning how to keep our canine companions happy and healthy.
Here are some paw-some ways to celebrate National Dog Week:
Play at the park
Take a fall scenic road trip
Attend an adoption or fundraising event
Donate time and supplies to a shelter
Take your dog to the vet for a check-up
Prepare a healthy meal for your dog
Host a posh pawty for all your dog’s friends
Arrange a photo shoot and make a picture album starring your dog
Create an “at home spa” for your dog. Grooming provides an opportunity to spend quality time pampering and bonding.
Teach your Dog a New Trick. Learning new tricks will keep your dog's mind sharp and mouth full of treats. That's the fun part!
