This August 26th is National Dog Day! We are so excited to see all the cute fuzzy faces that will come in for our party and to stay over the weekend. This is a GREAT opportunity to really maximize puppy socialization- our parties attract a large number of dogs, so your pup can meet and greet and play with all of them in a safe, clean environment. If you haven’t heard about it, here’s a brief synopsis of what National Dog Day is all about:
National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and was founded in 2004 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige, also the founder of National Puppy Day, National Mutt Day and National Cat Day and many more philanthropic days to bring attention to the plight of animals and encourage adoption. The date of August 26th is significant, as it’s the date that Colleen’s family adopted her first dog “Sheltie” when Colleen was 10 years old.
National Dog Day celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure. Our mission is to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day…
for personal protection, for law enforcement, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage, now they’re detecting cancer and seizures…things even humans cannot do. NDD was adopted into New York State Legislation in 2013. Read more about it here.
Puppy pet parents might not know that their little ones are able to attend our doggy day care parties! Little pups go through the same assessment process we employ with all dogs to keep everyone safe, and are placed in the best playroom for them. Since it’s a Saturday, you might even want to ‘take a night off’ and opt in for some puppy boarding in addition to our open play daycare. This is a surefire way to increase your puppy socialization safely. Our doggy day care services are a perfect way to treat your pup on National Dog Day.
Look at those smiling faces! These are just a handful of the cute pups that made it out to our day of play. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook to see all of our pups!
