Because your furry bestie deserves to be as stylish as you.
National Dog Day is on Aug. 26, and what better way to celebrate than by show your puppy some love with a stylish new toy or accessory? Founded in 2004 by author and animal welfare advocate, Colleen Paige, National Dog Day celebrates dogs of all breeds and raises awareness about the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year from places like public shelters. This holiday honours family dogs, military and police dogs, therapy pets, service animals that assist people with disabilities, and abandoned or stray shelter puppies in need of adoption.
According to research by Researchandmarkets.com, the global pet market was valued at $232.14 billion USD in 2030, and as expected, dogs are the most popular pet in the market. Other than encouraging the public to “adopt not shop,” National Dog Day is also the perfect time to show some appreciation to the beautiful, loyal canines in your life. That means extra cuddles, a special new bone perhaps and, yep, by gifting your four-legged BFF an aesthetically pleasing, design-focused dog accessory. Dogs can be stylish, too!
