Puppies are known for being loyal, cheerful, and most of all, irresistibly cute. Every March 23rd, we take time to appreciate what our adorable fur-babies mean to us with National Puppy Day.

Not sure how you can show your puppy how much you love and appreciate them? Here are 5 greats ways you can celebrate your puppy on National Puppy Day.

  1. Teach your puppy a new trick

No matter how old your puppy gets, they’ll never be too old to learn a new trick! For National Puppy Day, consider spending time with your puppy by teaching them how to sit, roll over, and more.

Doing this helps strengthen the human-animal bond and mentally stimulates your puppy. Use positive reinforcement, like treats and praising to help make the teaching process much easier.

  1. Puppy Playdate

If you have a friend, co-worker, or neighbor with a puppy, you can definitely celebrate the special day by setting up a puppy playdate. Remember that socialization is important to start on at a young age, and making a new playpal will definitely help your fur-baby in the long run.

Of course, some puppies are a little too shy when it comes to socializing with others. Make sure that your puppy and your friend’s puppy are comfortable with meeting other puppies and people before making the meetup.  For more tips on how to set up a puppy playdate, check out our blog, Puppy Playdate.

  1. Take your puppy on a nature hike

Treat your little furry companion with a fun nature hike! Your puppy will absolutely love taking in all the sights, sounds, and smells of the outside world. You and your puppy can walk on a well-known hiking trail or go to a nearby local park that offers scenic views of nature.

Be sure to bring lots of water, food, and other essentials for you and your puppy. Your fur-baby might also become tired from walking so bring a comforter or bag that they can snuggle in as you walk.

  1. Throw a puppy party

What better to celebrate National Puppy Day than with a good ol’ puppy party? Invite friends, relatives, co-workers, and anyone you know who has puppies over to your house for a good time. This greatly benefits your puppy since introducing them to other puppies and people, and in large numbers, helps jumpstart the socialization process.

Remember to make sure your puppy is comfortable with meeting others, and that the other puppies are having fun. Always be prepared to correct any bad behavior if needed.

  1. Have a cute puppy photoshoot

Want to always remember your National Puppy Day celebration? A cute puppy photoshoot might do the trick! You can have a professional photographer or a friend who’s good with a camera take a photoshoot of you and your puppy.

If you’re on social media, you can even share it on there for all your friends and family to see! Nothing puts a smile on people’s faces that seeing a photo set of an adorable puppy. Don’t forget to tag Petland when creating your post!

In the end, what’s important on National Puppy Day is that your little furball is happy and comfortable.
