August is Now Officially National Dog Month!

Yup, it’s really happening. With help from over 10,000 of the world’s most dog-loving dog people––also known as “you guys”––we were able to successfully make the case for a month that celebrates the best darn pet on the planet. National Dog Month will now be held every August, every year, from now until the end of dog time.


$10K for Canine Assistants

Through the National Dog Month initiative in 2020, we were also able to reach our goal of donating $10,000 to our nonprofit partner Canine Assistants. Thank you to all the dog people who participated in our poll, and the doggos you participated for. 

What Will National Dog Month Be?

It will be an annual celebration of a pet that unquestionably deserves an annual celebration. It will recognize all the things dogs do to make our lives more fun––from the silly things like challenging us to games of tubesock tug-of-war, to the more important things like always being there whenever we need very unconditional, very cuddly love. It’ll work to help us appreciate the bonds between dogs and people––the #1 human-animal bond in the world. And above all, it’ll make August the best time of the year for our very best friends.
