National Dog Day is Saturday, August 26. If you have a furry friend in your family, this is the perfect time to show Fido how much you care. Make the holiday extra special with one of these memorable suggestions for your celebration.
1. Welcome a New Dog to the Family
If you don’t yet have a canine pal to celebrate National Dog Day with, perhaps this is the time to adopt a new friend. You can find adoptable dogs every Saturday at local PetSmart locations. You can also head directly to the local OK Humane Adoption Center. View adoptable dogs at the Central OK Humane Society online.
2. Explore a New Dog Park
Our Springs at Memorial and Springs at May Lakes apartment communities both have leash-free pet playgrounds where you can take your dog to burn off some energy during the week. Celebrate Dog’s Day a little differently and try exploring a new park. There are several beautiful places in the Oklahoma City area where you can take your pet. Consider some of these popular spots:
You can handle your dog’s everyday grooming needs at the handy pet spa areas available at our Springs communities. If you want to go above and beyond for your pup’s special day, check out one of Oklahoma City’s more refined pet spas. The Diamond Dog Pet Salon & Spa offers pampering treatments like the dead sea mineral mud bath to condition and rehydrate your dog’s coat. Mrs. Doolittle’s offers a full-service grooming experience that includes a nail trimming, ear cleaning, bath, brush, haircut and cologne.
4. Pick Up a Special Treat
Get a special little gift for your pooch to celebrate National Dog Day. Head to the A1 Pet Emporium to find a little of everything. This natural market carries only the highest quality foods for your pets and if you’re heading in for your first visit, stop by their website first for a 10% off coupon.
You can find gourmet dog treats at a local pet bakery. The Barking Dog Bakery Boutique has cakes, ice cream, bones, cookies and popcorn made especially for dogs. Flavors include peanut butter, cinnamon roll, pumpkin, carob, carrot, parmesan cheese, lamb and more. The Butterbites Pet Bakery is another tasty local option. Stop in once for a special snack, or sign up for the monthly box and get 1.5 pounds of treats each month in your subscription box to make Dog’s Day last all year long.
