Awww... Happy National Puppy Day!

Celebrating National Dog Day with cuddles, kisses, and extra treats
Husky, small, cute or tall, it's time to celebrate National Puppy Day on March 23rd.

This year, mark your calendar for Saturday, March 23, 2019 to celebrate the unique joys of puppy love on National Puppy Day.

Why National Puppy Day? It all began in 2006 when author Collen Paige (who also helped to establish National Dog Day) wanted to raise awareness for puppy adoption from shelters and rescue organization. Since then, the popularity of National Puppy Day as spread to Canada, the UK, and around the world.

This year, also watch for special promotions advertising National Puppy Day freebies, deals and coupons to spoil your favorite fur baby on their special day.


Top 10 ways to celebrate National Puppy Day


Extra cuddles, tickles & treats for National Puppy Day.

1. Have a National Puppy Day party and invite all your friends and their puppies. Spoil them with extra treats -- and don't forget the camera!

2. Host a National Dog Day event to raise money for your local animal shelter, or offer your services as a volunteer.

3. Since National Puppy Day happens around Spring break in March, make plans to take your dog along on a dog friendly vacation or a little R&R in a swank dog friendly hotel.

4. Take your puppy to the local dog park to get them exercised and socialized. (It's fun for pet owners to meet their neighbors, too!)

5. Take your puppy to a nursing home or senior community and receive instant smiles and gratitude.

6. Make your house puppy-safe. Much like child-proofing a home, be sure to lock up cleaning supplies or other household chemicals, hide electrical cords, be sure to block access to the backyard pool, and install a fence around the yard so your puppy can safely experience the joy of, well, being a puppy!

7. Buy your puppy a new puppy toy. They can always use more.

8. Don't have a puppy? Find out how to foster or adopt a puppy from your local shelter.

9. Check your local bookstore, library or online community for expert tips on proper care, feeding and training your new puppy.

10. Share photos of your puppy on social media in honor of National Puppy Day.
