About National Dog Day

National Dog Day is celebrated annually on August 26. A time to recognize man’s best friend and notice the impact they have on our daily lives. Created in 2004 by Colleen Paige, a Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate. Colleen created it on this day, as it’s the date her family adopted their first dog. Dog Day celebrates all breeds, purebred and mixed and encourages you to adopt and support reputable breeders.
