The seasons change, pumpkins spice up, and there's a pep to your pawsteps. What could this be, but National Dog Week!
Always in the last full week of September, National Dog Week began in 1928 with founder and WWI veteran, Captain William Lewis Judy. Captain Judy aimed to teach the responsibilities of dog ownership. He published Dog World Magazine and promoted humane living spaces for dogs to run and play. Today's celebration includes responsible pet ownership within our community and the unconditional love of man's best friend.
We included our own checklist to spend time with your dog this holiday!
# 1: Walk with your companion in the outdoors. National Dog Week leads up to the World's Largest Pet Walk on Saturday September 28th. If your adventures take you down the path less traveled, we'll be here to clean those dirty paws!
# 2: Treat yo'self. Visit us at Buddies Pet Spa & Boutique in Marshfield, MA. Indulge in our Carberry Kitchen treats, homemade locally and grain-free! Our pet's favorite flavors are Beef & Cheese, Salmon Sweet Potato, Banana Honey, and Pumpkin Peanut Butter.
# 3: Include your pet in back to school festivities. Create a project involving your furry best friend, or simply find the time to relax and take a break together.
# 4: One everlasting truth is dogs get dirty! Pamper your pup with a brush, nail trim, or we'll come to you for an Autumn makeover.
# 5: Donate to local shelters and support our community!

Dogs are family, so naturally we choose to celebrate them all year round. National Dog Week gives us the chance to reflect on how we can enrich our pup's lives at home and within our neighborhoods. Let's celebrate the happy tails!
