What is your favorite holiday? 

Is it the warm smell of freshly baked Christmas cookies? Or the spooky spiderweb and ghost decorations of Halloween? Maybe you look forward to New Year’s Eve, with all those fireworks and fun parties?

Here at RAREPUPPY, we especially love August 26th – National Dog Day!  

To help dog moms and dads celebrate their pooches, we have brainstormed 3 easy ways to make National Dog Day extra “paw-some.” 


1. Order hand-designed custom art

The first (and most stylish) way to celebrate National Dog Day 2022 is to order a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. This will feature none other than your pet, of course!

Each piece is hand-designed. Love, care, and attention go into every single portrait. Using a minimalist aesthetic, RAREPUPPY artist Paul will take a photograph you provide of your pet, and then turn it into a silhouette. Little details (such as the body shape and characterises like ears, tail, legs, etc.) receive special attention. 

The result?

A unique pet portrait that captures YOUR pup’s spirit! 

Unlike other dog breed artwork that relies upon stock clipart and repetitive images, RAREPUPPY portraits are like snowflakes…each is 100% unique.

Plus, you’ll get to select whatever colors you like. In fact, we have a rainbow! From warm and sunny reds, oranges, and yellows to soft pastel blues, greens, purples, and pinks, you have total creative control. 


2. Spoil your dog with a new toy or treat

Secondly, celebrate National Dog Day with yummy toys and treats. There are lots of exciting and interactive toys on the market these days. 

Does your dog have the following?

  • Kong
  • Puzzle
  • Snuffle mat
  • IQ treat ball

If not, consider spoiling them with a fun new toy. These four suggestions are great for canine enrichment and mental stimulation.  

Don’t forget about treats!

Delicious and nutritional dog treats are a yummy way to show your dog how much you love them. Good options include oven baked sweet potato slices, banana, carrots, green beans, and peas. Cooked chicken, beef, or fish meat added to their bowl will also be a guaranteed hit.


3. Spend quality time together

Speaking of things that make a dog’s tail wag, you can also celebrate National Dog Day by simply spending time with your pup. For example:

  • Play fetch together
  • Go for a long walk
  • Visit the beach
  • Swim in the pool
  • Chase a ball in the yard
  • Say hello to other four-legged buddies at the dog park
  • Snuggle on the couch 

Remember, your dog loves you more than ANYTHING in the whole world. 

Spending quality time bonding is the greatest gift you can give your pup.
