About Walking the Dog Day
Walking the Dog Day or National Dog Walking Day is celebrated on February 22nd and is the perfect opportunity to educate new dog parents about the benefits of regular dog walking.
This day combines two of the most enjoyable things we have in this life: dogs and exercise. Humans love walking with their four-legged friends, and pooches love their strolls with their people. So put on your walking shoes, grab a leash, poo bags and some treats for the road, and take your favorite pooch for a breath of fresh air to celebrate National Walking The Dog Day.
Activities for Walk Your Dog Day
Share a special treat
Dogs love their treats, and one special way of rewarding them on this day is by providing a unique dog snack for them during their walk. Keep some treats in your pocket for spontaneous snack breaks or reward them with a favorite snack at home.
Try a different trail
Dogs love exploring new terrain. If you are a city dweller, venture out to the nearest nature park, or simply try a different route than normal. Your dog will love exploring new sights, scents, and sounds.
Take a walk
Don’t have a dog of your own to walk on National Walking The Dog Day? Maybe it is time to remedy that by visiting your local animal shelter. Take some dogs in need of adoption on a stroll, or even better, ask about adopting, and enjoy walking the dog, every day.
