August 26 is National Dog Day. It gives us all a reminder of how wonderful our furry companions are and an excuse to celebrate them. Take some time to give your dog a little extra love and be grateful for their companionship.
Take a Walk
Walking your dog is good for a lot of reasons. You both get some exercise, and you get a chance to unwind. Walking your dog helps you clear your head while spending some much-needed time outdoors. Plus, you get a little extra time to bond with your dog. He needs the exercise and loves having the time with you.
Go Somewhere New
Late summer is a great time to get out and explore. Look for new trails or parks that you and your dog can enjoy together. It’s a fun way to get outside and take in the outdoors together.
Schedule Some Play Time
Like taking a walk, playing with your dog is good exercise and a great way to bond. Playing is crucial for young pups, but it’s also important to get your older dog moving around and having some fun. It’s good for both of you.
Get a Checkup
You knew this one was coming. Part of appreciating your dog is keeping her healthy. If it’s been a while since your last wellness exam, take this opportunity to make an appointment with your veterinarian. A healthy dog is a happy dog, and wellness checks help keep your dog healthy.
After all that walking and playing, it will feel good to sit down and relax. Take some time to be with your dog and relax together. You both deserve a break.
