26th August is the National Dog Day. It is also the birthday to Chris Pine and Dylan O’Brien. So, clearly it’s a day for unfettered beauty and absolute babes all around the world – be it Hollywood or homes of dog owners.
Read on for a list of fun ideas for making this National Dog Day a fun one for your canine.
Fact: most dogs are endlessly fascinated by floating balls of soap water. They love to chase and pop bubbles. So grab a bubble blowing kit and have some fun with your canine!
RELAXING SPA DAY
A quick google search will reveal chains of dog spas in almost every locality. So, head on over to the one of your choosing because every dog deserves a chill day off from sleeping and tail wagging!
RENT A BOAT
It might be a bit of a drive to the closest lake but it’ll be worth it when you rent that boat and take a ride with your pet canine. Especially for dogs who love swimming, a trip to the water could be a real treat.
SET UP A STUDIO
You could have a normal photo shoot with pretty pictures of your pet to remember him by – but where’s the fun? Dress your pup up in the cutest garb you can find (you can even dress him up as a famous celebrity!) and click away for a memorable Dog Day souvenir.
For all the homebody dog-human pairs – especially the ones who are foodies as well – this is the perfect indoor activity for a hot summer day. Make your dog some food! Because who doesn’t love “Ghar ka khana”? Find all the recipes here.
TAKE A HIKE
Literally – take a hike. Extend his favourite activity (a walk) into an hour-long hike and experience nature with your best furry friend!
FIRE UP A GRILL
You know how your dog always begs for a piece of whatever heavenly smelling thing you’re chomping on? Well, this is the one day he won’t have to. Set up a barbeque in your lawn or balcony just for him with an assortment of his favorite meats and treats.
Set up a trail of hidden treats for your dog to hunt and find all over the house. He can brush up on his sense of smell while still having fun.
SET UP A PLAYDATE
Have friends with dogs? Invite them over! Let your pup have a party with his friends. Provide toys, treats, and water for the perfect get-together. Don’t have a date for your pet? Find one. Download our app and find a playmate for your pet.
TUG OF WAR
Playing tug of war can be a great way to get your dog to exercise as well as to have some fun. Remember to be gentle and careful of his or her jaw and teeth – especially for pups who may have a more fragile bone structure in the growing stages. Also, let your dog win sometimes! Letting them win builds trust and makes them think you’re fun, resulting in them wanting to play with you more.
NETFLIX AND CHILL
For the calmer, homely duos – just put on a movie and snuggle up with your pet. Grab a couple snacks and make the most of this chill day in by bonding with your dog.
Every day should be Dog day because they deserve all this attention on all of the days. But, since a special day must be commemorated, this list would help.
