It’s safe to say we love our dogs here at Simply Pets. They are the most loyal companions a person could ask for. So today, let’s celebrate National Dog Day by showing how much we care about these furry friends with special treats and fun outings!

Let your dog pick out a toy from the store.

Try taking your dog to your local pet store and letting them pick out a new toy. Or, if they’re a foodie, let them out a treat. You can even participate in the “letting my dog pick a toy” Tik Tok challenge!

Donate funds or supplies to a rescue or shelter.

If you are able, donate money or extra supplies to your local shelter or rescue. They will be able to use your donation for medical care and supplies, such as food and cleaning supplies. Finding a local shelter can be tricky because there are so many out there! The ASPCA has an excellent database where you can type in your zip code and find shelters near you that could use your help!

Stop by Starbucks and treat them to a puppuccino!

You can celebrate by taking your dog to Starbucks and treating them to a puppuccino, also known as a pup cup. The puppuccino is just like the human version, except it’s made with whip cream instead of coffee. The best part is it’s 100% free! Here’s how to order:

  • Ask for a puppuccino along with your order
  • Enjoy!

Invite your pups friends over for a National Dog Day party!

Give your dog a fun day with puppy friends! Invite all your pup’s friends over on National Dog Day and enjoy the festivities. Make sure to have extra treats prepared for all of their furry friends. Find our peanut butter treat recipe here!

Get out on a fun outing, like a hike, boat ride, or swimming.

Show your dog how much you care. If you are looking for something fun to do together, consider taking them on a hike, going to the beach, or even swimming! The possibilities are endless!

We hope that you’re excited to celebrate National Dog Day with your pup. Don’t forget to snuggle them extra and give them lots of love!
