National Spoil Your Dog Day

National Spoil Your Dog Day was created specifically so dog owners can give their pets more attention. We do not always have time to pamper our dear pets – we either work or try to take a break from hard work. Therefore, a special day appeared on the calendar, set aside specifically for leisure with pets.


How National Spoil Your Dog Day emerged is unknown, but this holiday is loved by dog ​​lovers and their pets. Dogs are in 47% of US families, so many want to give their pets a real holiday. Yes, all dogs have birthdays, but sometimes this is not enough. Love, as well as holidays aimed at its expression, does not happen often.

Interesting facts

  • Dogs were domesticated about 23,000 years ago, long before cats.
  • The first animal protection laws were passed in Great Britain at the end of the 19th century.
  • There are cases when dog owners bequeathed huge fortunes to them: for example, businessman Leon Helmsley left his pet $12 million.
  • The movies Lassie and Beethoven made Collie and St. Bernard breeds stunningly popular for years to come.

How to take part

Spend more time with your pet than usual. Walk with them as much as they want, or play your favorite game. Be sure to praise them a lot and say how much you love them. Buy a new toy or a tasty treat – just be sure to keep in mind it should be for dogs. A list of products not suitable for all dogs or a particular breed can be found on the Internet. Remember dogs cannot eat sweet or spicy things.

Your pet will definitely appreciate such care and repay it with love.
