Happy National Dog Week

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!
