National Dog Week is way more than a trip to the park or even to get a “puppucino” at Starbuck’s with your BF. National Dog Week is a celebration of dogs, what they mean to people, and the ongoing task of improving life for all dogs. After returning from World War 1 in 1928 Captain William Judy, a canine advocate decided that a week-long celebration was “the least that could be done to recognize the service and unwavering loyalty of man’s best friend. Captain Judy went on to publishing Dog World Magazine.
This week focuses on the education of not just dog owners, but also the general public. In addition, this annual event also focuses on the interaction between dog care professionals and dog owners as well as helping lost, abused, or unwanted dogs around the country. National Dog Week offers a chance to organize new and fun events for dog lovers and dogs while helping local organizations, shelters, and dogs in need. With a different theme every year, National Dog Week takes place over the fourth week of September. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, not any celebrations are happening this year. But I am making BIG plans for next year!
