Celebrate National Dog Week 2021

Huddle up, folks! it’s time to gear up for the most adorable week of the year. Yes, you guessed it, National Dog Week is around the corner!

The celebration has been around since the 1920s, and its popularity has been growing ever since. It began when a World War I veteran decided that dedicating a week to dogs is the least that people could do to honor the service and loyalty of our furry friends.

National Dog Week is not just a time to celebrate your pupper, but to acknowledge all dogs, whether pets or strays, and work towards improving their lives.

Let us look at a few fun ways to make the most of the week!

Spread Some Pawsitivity

Remember, National Dog Week is also about showing responsibility. A significant number of fur babies do not have a proper place to live and end up at dog shelters. You can do your bit by visiting some shelters and lending a helping hand.

There is a lot of work to be done around shelters. You could offer to walk the doggos or spend some time entertaining them. You could even offer to clean up certain areas.

In case you do not have the time to volunteer, you can simply reach out to your local shelter and ask if you could help in other ways. These shelters might accept donations in the form of food, toys, and cash.

The @forgottendogsrescue is one such shelter that welcomes volunteers to help dogs. 

Doggo’s Day Out

Who doesn’t love a trip? Pack your bags and drive off for a mini adventure with your floof! For starters, you could hit up your local park and play some games with your pupper. Pets love being out in the open. It could be a fun opportunity for them to roll in the fresh grass and play with their toys. Oh, and have you heard about Doga?

Another fun idea could be to explore famous places, like monuments, with your pet child. Check out how adorable @itsdougthepug is looking in his vacation pictures!

If your best boy is fond of the great waters, you could even drive up to a beach. After all, nothing screams fun as loud as splashing in the water and playing in the sand. If you step out on a rainy day, don’t forget to look at our list of essentials first!

Did Someone Say Cuddles?

If going out is not your beat, don’t worry. You can have just as much fun staying in! We’re thinking of a soft bed and some comfortable blankets for you and your doggo.

You could plan some games for the dogs or just let them have fun however they want to. You could even hit up the park as a group and watch your pets have the time of their lives.

A photo-op for the doggos will take your pawrty up a notch and keep everyone entertained. Here’s a list of accessories you could keep for the perfect shot.

There are countless ways you can go about enjoying National Dog Week. However, don’t get so caught up in the fun and games that you forget to do your bit for the fluffy community.

Volunteering and donating might be a small thing for you but can be a huge help to the shelters.

Enjoy the week to the fullest by taking your doggos out and pampering them with gifts and yummies.
