It’s your canines friend’s special day and you’ve got to celebrate the day right, that’s why we’re helping you find ways to enjoy this momentous occasion!
If you don’t have a dog of your own, or maybe you do then why not spend the day volunteering at a local dog shelter, could always do with the extra help of another walker or just a fuss! While you’re there if you see a pooch that you fall in love with why not look into the adopting services they offer there, that would definitely make a dogs’ day!
Maybe you don’t have the time to help out, but there are many other ways you can contribute! Why not donate toys, blankets, food etc, and if you don’t know what to bring then most shelters will have a list of things that will either come in handy to them or something they need to keep the shelter going. Remember, it does have to be big or expensive, everything counts!
Why not throw a party, everyone loves a party! Invite all your canine friends and eat dog-friendly cakes and play with all the toys! Sounds fun, right? It’s a cheap and easy way to celebrate the day, and your dog will have all of their friends around them!
You could treat your dog to a new toy, or three… or five, or ten!
Does your dog have a favourite place to walk or explore? Make it a day out for the whole family by driving to the local beach or maybe take a hike if you’re up for it? The best thing about beaches is that they are free, and most of them allow dogs! If you’re not sure where this fun-filled becahss are, then just read our article all about the ‘Top 10 UK Beaches Open For Paws All Year Round!‘.
All dogs loved being pampered – well, some of them do! If your canine friends enjoy a lather of dog shampoo and a nice ol’ brush then this is for you! Don’t fancy making your bathroom all mucky and brown? There are many local dog pampering ‘salons’ or even mobile ones that’ll do it just outside of your house, brilliant!

Take a dip, if it’s warm enough! Take your pooch to a local (safe) river where they can have a splash, although there is an alternative for when the weather turns miserable! There are many Lidos and swimming pools all around the country that have ‘dog swims’ or even dog lessons! It’s great fun for your canine friend as they’ll meet lots of other doggies there too!
Take time out of your day to spend quality time with them! Maybe you’re at work all week, you’re busy with the kids, or your schedule is just hectic? Dogs love hugs and attention, so after a nice long walk or after you finish work, sit and play with them, they might need a lot of fun and rest after their super-fun and busy National Dog Day!
