1. Play With Your Dog
Dogs and owners who play together build a stronger bond. “Life is too short, play with your dog.”
As a golden retriever, SUGAR loves to play anything that involves running, fetching and of course tennis balls.
2. TREAT Your Dog
Make special homemade dog treats that you can share with your dog. Summer heat is still lingering, make one of our easy frozen dog treats: 25 Homemade Frozen Dog Treats. For more homemade dog treat recipes, Cooking For Sugar, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
Pawsome News! Cooking For Sugar is now available pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Indie Bound.
3. Take Your Dog For A Car Ride
Many dogs, like SUGAR, love going for a car ride. SUGAR Safety is always our priority. She is always buckled up with Sleepypod ClickIt Sport Crash-Tested Car Safety Dog Harness.
4. Go For An Adventure Walk
Explore a new walking route or a new park. When we visited downtown Los Angeles, SUGAR enjoyed an adventure walk to see buildings and sculptures.
6. Snap Photos Of Your Dog
Photographing your dog is a great way to commemorate your fun day.
5. Do All Things Dogs!
Take a day off from work. Spend the day with your dog and do all dog-friendly activities in your city. SUGAR is very lucky. There are lots of dog-friendly things to do in Southern California.
7. Give Back
National Dog Day is also a day to promote ADOPTION. There are many ways to help needy adoptable dogs. The Human Society shared 55 Ways to Help Animals. We help needy animals every day by walking and using ResQwalk app. Download ResQwalk and help needy animals one step at a time.
8. Give Your Dog All The Love He/She Deserves
Celebrate and Appreciate your Dog’s Unconditional Love and Loyalty

Every day is Dog Day around this house. ???? I take pictures of either one or the other – or both – of the dogs almost every day. I take Ducky for a car ride twice a day, five days a week (to daycare and back home), and I love on my girls all the time. (One of the many percs of retirement.)
