Every dog has its day, and August 26 is it!

National Dog Day celebrates all dogs, big, small, mixed or pure. This special day, founded in 2004 by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate Colleen Paige, was established to shine a spotlight on shelter dogs in need to encourage adoption and acknowledge family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort.

How will you celebrate National Dog Day your four-legged BFF? We know readers love to shower their dogs with love, affection and tail-waggin’ fun every day, with visits to dog parks, splash zones, favorite hiking trails and other dog-centric adventures.

Let us know how you celebrate National Dog Day with your canine companion.
