At The Veterinary Clinic, our Brunswick veterinarian and team strongly believes in celebrating the lives of our beloved pets. With National dog day, it is a great time to appreciate and celebrate the wonderful canine companions in our lives!

All About National Dog Day and How to Celebrate

Specifically, National Dog Day takes place on August 26th of every year and aims to honor dogs that serve to bring us comfort, enhance our lives, and even save lives (as is the case of service dogs and K9 officers). And while you certainly don’t need a reason to shower your dog with gifts of attention, this upcoming holiday provides the perfect excuse.

There are many ways to consider celebrate your pup aside from National Dog Day. If you already have a dog, consider something as simple as picking up his or her favorite treat. You could also take your dog to his favorite place, such as a local dog park, the beach, or even just on a long car ride.

If you don’t have a dog, you can still celebrate National Dog Day in a number of ways! If you’ve been wanting to adopt a dog, what better day to do it? Check out your local animal shelter for adoptable dogs, and find one that suits you! Even if you’re not interested in adopting, you might consider donating to a local dog rescue group, volunteering at a shelter, or even choosing to sponsor or foster an adoptable pet. There are many ways to get involved regardless of whether you’re a dog owner yourself.

Last but not least, make sure you schedule all your dog’s upcoming vet appointments with our Brunswick veterinarian, including that annual wellness exam, so you can keep your pet happy and healthy. Contact The Veterinary Clinic today at (207) 729-3412 to get started.
