National Puppy Day

Did you know that March 23rd is National Puppy Day? This is a great time to show your canine buddy some extra TLC… even if he is long past his puppy stage! Here, a Dayton, TN vet lists some great ways to get that cute tail wagging.

New Toys

Toys are very important for Fido’s health and well-being. Playing keeps your furry buddy active, which is great for him physically. It also offers beneficial mental stimulation. Pick up a new plaything for your pup!


At the end of the day, all your dog wants to do is spend time with you. Indulge Fido with a fun play session. This will be fun for you both!

Fun Day

Our canine friends love exploring new places. Treat Fido to a fun excursion to a doggy park, or explore a new trail with him. Be sure to bring plenty of water along!

Comfy Bed

Could your furry friend’s doggy bed use a pupgrade? Buy or make Fido a new bed to look adorable in.


This is a great time to get some cute pictures of your furry best friend. Schedule your doggy photo shoot for dusk or dawn to get the best natural light.


One thing that is bound to get your pup’s furry tail going is a tasty snack. Store-bought treats are fine, but you can also make Fido some homemade goodies. Just be sure to use only pet-safe ingredients.

New Digs

Do you have a yard for your pooch to run and play in? Why not get Fido a doghouse? You can also make your pet’s outdoor time more fun by adding a sandbox, puppy play zone, and/or kiddie pool.

Veterinary Care

We know, given the choice, Fido would probably choose any of the other options on this list. But your pooch will be healthier—and therefore happier—with regular veterinary care. Let this be a reminder to schedule his next appointment!

Tail Wags

Dogs are amazingly loyal to their humans. You’re the apple of your furry pal’s eye, and the center of his world. Spend some quality time with your canine companion. Pet him, talk to him, and offer lots of ear scritches and belly rubs. Time spent with dogs is never wasted!
