Here’s how to enjoy the day with your dog
Time files when you’re having fun… and is there anything more fun than spending time with your furry best friend? Not like you needed a reason, but today being National Puppy Day, there’s no better day to make some extra time for the puppy (or dog!) in your life. No need to call in the caterer, strike up the band, or invite the neighbors – unless you really want to. Here are a few easy-breezy ways to celebrate National Puppy Day!
Go for a run – or walk together! Sounds simple enough, but dogs love exercise, smelling smells and seeing the sights, almost as much as they love spending time with you. And some one-on-one time on this special day will make it all the more special for you both.
Take a drive. It’s a dog thing, right? Windows down, breeze in your face, ears flapping… if you’ve never seen a dog smile, this will surely do it. The weather’s near perfect for this sort of treat in our neighborhood!
Did someone say, “ball?” If your dog is a “ball dog” you know how it is! Some time on the lawn for a little back-and-forth with the ball is a great way to enjoy some time together, and get a little exercise, too. Want to really splurge? There’s nothing like that new tennis ball smell, just saying!
Get the chip. The microchip, that is. If you’ve yet to get your puppy or dog this potentially live-saving procedure, now’s the time. It’s easy, simple, and practically painless. If your puppy is ever lost (or worse), this little microchip could save their lives, as well as a lot of heartache.
And what about a treat? Treats from Blue Ridge Naturals and Carolina Prime Pet can be a great way to reward or pamper your dog. Along with a balanced diet and physical activity, our all-natural, made-in-the-USA treats are one more way you can show your puppy or dog how much you care. Enjoy!
About National Puppy Day
Yes, National Puppy Day is a real thing! In fact, National Puppy Day is now recognized as a holiday worldwide, with folks all over the planet taking part. It’s not just a day to have a good time with our pups, either. Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, National Puppy Day was started by author and animal advocate Colleen Paige as a way to encourage shelter pet adoption and recognize the joy that these dogs bring to our lives. That’s more than enough reason to celebrate!
