Celebrating National Puppy Day

Posted Mar 20, 2023 in Puppies

March 23rd is National Puppy Day! Grab your fur baby and their favorite toys; it’s time to party! Puppies bring lots of affection and attention to our homes, and we should celebrate the fluffy bundles of energy that make us proud pet parents. Keep reading if you need ideas for a fun adventure or activities with your dog!


Celebrate with shopping! Whether you need to run errands or pick up a new toy, take your furry friend along for the ride. Puppies love exploring new environments, meeting new people, and smelling new smells worldwide! Bringing Fido along is sure to make mundane errands into a fun time; the following stores are dog-friendly:

  • Petco
  • PetSmart
  • Home Depot
  • Lowes
  • TJ Maxx/Marshalls
  • Nordstrom
  • Apple
  • Bass Pro Shop
  • Pottery Barn

Puppy Treats

While out and about, stop for special puppy day treats! Bringing Fido along allows them to choose their favorite sweets from the vast treat aisle options. Your furry friend will be ecstatic to pick a dessert for their special day! On the other hand, you and your furry friend can whip up your own doggy treats! Easy DIY dog treats can be made of frozen peanut butter and chopped bananas, or check out hundreds of recipes on Pinterest! 

Puppy Play Date

Another great way to celebrate is inviting all the pup’s over! Invite the neighborhood dogs or your pet parent squad for a proper puppy party. Grab some adorable doggy treats, a few balloons, and tennis balls during your fun shopping excursion! If your puppy hasn’t been around other people yet, check out this Introducing Your Dog Guide!

New Trail

If you have an adventurous pup at home, National Puppy Day is a great motivation to try out some new hiking trails! Alltrails.com is fantastic for finding local trails, plus under “Suitability,” you can filter to specifically dog-friendly trails. Trail walks are not only beneficial for tiring your puppy out, but they also get to explore new terrains and nature beyond the backyard! Dogs need physical and mental stimulation to calm their anxious energy; this covers two tasks in one trip!
