Every week is dog week at Paws Pet Care Pet Sitting & Dog Walking! However, during this nationally recognized National Dog Weekweek we encourage you to celebrate in honor of your very best friend.

National Dog Week started in 1928 when a World War I veteran and canine advocate by the name of Captain William Judy decided that a weeklong celebration was the least that could be done to recognize the service and the unwavering loyalty of man’s best friend.  Here are a few ways YOU can celebrate your bestie this week:

  1. Share your time and a dime by volunteering, donating or adopting from your local animal shelter or with our own non-profit My Dog Eats First.
  2. Paw-it-forward to others that you see out with their furries! Share one of your pups favorite treats, go to a pet-friendly restaurant or brewery like 3rd Turn Brewery in Jeffersontown and play!
  3. Spoil your pet with a special trip to a local pet bakery like Three Dog Bakery, pet store or park for a treat, game of frisbee or whatever is fun for your pup!

It’s been scientifically proven that petting, playing and interacting with your pet has many health benefits for us hoomans too. And of course, our dogs LOVE IT because they love YOU.

Happy National Dog Week!
