Best Ways to Celebrate National Dog Day

national dog day 2021

We can’t imagine our lives without them and you’re their whole world. That’s why spending National Dog Day with your canine companion is so special!

Who are we kidding, though? Every day is a special day! But each year, this is the time to enjoy even more wet kisses, whisker tickles, and warm snuggles that our dogs bring us.

That's why we're here to share five paw-fect ways to spoil your pup!

Celebrate With Time

As the world continues to transition into a new normal, one of the best gifts you can offer your fur baby is continued time. 

Make those extra minutes in the morning and the evening special. Continue the rituals you had during the week on the weekends. It may take a little while to adjust back into a routine, but you’ll never regret the time you spend with them. 

Separation may cause your pets to feel tense as things change. Explore ways to keep your fur baby calm and composed during these times of transition.

Celebrate Outdoors

There’s no better place to spend quality time with Fido than the great outdoors. As the weather warms up, it’s time to go on long dog walks to the dog parks, beaches, or even just fun in the backyard. 

Just make sure you're supporting your dog's joint health before the fun! Introducing a joint supplement for dogs is a great way to support your pup's hip and joint function -- especially if it includes Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM.

Celebrate With Learning

We nurtured some of our best friendships in school. Why not go to school with your dog? Maybe your retriever is already a champion runner but might be looking for some new tricks. Or maybe your poodle could use a few extra lessons in manners.

Whether you’re looking for classes in agility or a behavior class to train a new puppy, taking a hand in helping your dog learn new skills will pay off for them – and you. Those are classes you won’t be ditching.

Celebrate With Charity

The only thing better than one furry friend is two! And we love to encourage people to not only adopt pets from their local shelter when they can but to make sure they are set up for their fur-ever home. 

We want to find ways for folks to keep their Besties happy and healthy at home, instead – and want to be sure that when folks DO adopt them, they’re committed to a lifelong commitment, without surrender.

That’s why, as part of our Zest Fur Good effort, we are a sponsor of the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando’s annual “Paws in the Park” event, a fundraiser to help support our local animal welfare agency.

Celebrate With Health

One of the best ways to show your favorite (furry) family member your love is to keep them feeling Zesty by maintaining those check-ups with your vet.

If you're still looking for a veterinarian, that's okay! Finding a vet you trust that your pet adores can be a daunting task, but when you know the right questions to ask, it’s easy.

If the vet recommends functional supplements for certain conditions, make sure you choose a brand that is certified by the National Animal Supplement Council and uses high-quality ingredients.

No matter how you celebrate this year, the most important thing is that you’re safe, healthy, and happy. We’d love to hear about how you and your Zesty Bestie spend your days together.
