NCP Blog: National Dog Day

Dog lovers celebrate National Dog Day every year on August 26. But let’s be honest- if you love dogs, every day is a day to celebrate our furry friends and family members! I love animals, and my family has always had pets.


Why August 26? According to Country Living, National Dog Day was created in 2004 by Colleen Paige, an animal welfare advocate and pet lifestyle expert. She chose that date because it was the day her family adopted their first shelter dog when she was 10 years old.


If you want to celebrate National Dog Day, here are a few ideas:

  • Volunteer at your local animal shelter
  • Make a donation to an animal welfare organization
  • Take your dog- or a friend’s dog- on a walk
  • Hire a pet photographer to take photos of your dog
  • Buy your furry friend a new toy

Do you have a dog? What supplies do you buy for your pet? Let me know in the comments, and tell me a fun fact about your pup!

Move over, Rover! According to Daily Paws, the most popular names for dogs are:

  • Bella
  • Max
  • Luna
  • Charlie
  • Lucy
  • Cooper
  • Daisy
  • Milo
  • Zoe or Zoey
  • Rocky
