Paw-sitive Ways to Celebrate National Dog Day

August 24, 2018

Celebrate your best fur friend on Sunday, August 26 for National Dog Day! Spoil your four-legged friend with their favorite toys, treats and quality time while staying on a budget.

While your dog may not know it is a holiday, a fun new toy may get their tail wagging. This EverPet® Knotted Rope Toy may be great for a game of tug-of-war and their teeth and gums! If your pet is smaller, they may enjoy an EverPet® Vinyl Squeaky Toy instead. This toy comes in an assortment of colors and shapes! Plus, your dog will love spending the extra time with you.

If you’re dog loves treats, stock up on a few of their favorites. From peanut butter to chicken-flavored treats, find affordable dog treats in the flavor your dog loves with Dollar General. Consider Heartland Farms Medium Assorted Biscuits that come in a variety of flavors.

After all the treats and toys, take your dog outdoors for some (free) quality time, fresh air and exercise.  Set up a doggy play date with friends to make the day about them. Whether you’re a dog parent or not, consider visiting your local animal shelter to donate supplies or spend time with the pets. If considering adoption, check out the five essentials when bringing home a new pet.
