7 Fun Ways to Celebrate National Puppy Day

National Puppy Day Celebration LogoIf March 23 doesn't yet hold significance for you, it should. In 2006, National Puppy Day was started as a way to remind us of the joys and responsibilities of K9 ownership.

Founded by well respected author Colleen Paige, National Puppy Day is now recognized as an international holiday!

National Puppy Day was created out of a necessity to confront the worldwide problem regarding puppy mills and the conditions they provide. According to,, there are "unfavorable conditions at the estimated 8,000 "“ 10,000 puppy mills in the nation."

Poor diet, dirty and overcrowded kennels and a lack of proper socialization are just a few of the factors which attribute to the unfortunate effects of puppy mills. Puppies from these mills are typically taken from their mother's care at a young age causing a multitude of problems.

National Puppy Day was founded in order to raise awareness of these issues and encourage the general public to adopt from shelters and other reputable rescue organizations. While store front puppy sales may draw crowds and be a great way to spend some time while shopping, the stories behind these puppies are often down right chilling.

Fortunately, we can all make a difference! Do your part by observing National puppy day in the following fun ways!

1. Visit Your Local Dog Shelter

This is my personal favorite as this is how I came to own my 11 year old deaf blue heeler! Even if adoption isn't an option for you, the time you spend in assisting socializing these dogs will help!

2. Create a Funny Video of You and Your Furry Friend

Share this with friends and family via social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. Or even send it to a contest! Be sure to take advantage of your new platform to give a quick plug for National Puppy Day.

3. Groom and Bathe Them

Aside from the obvious health benefits a good looking dog always attracts attention! This is a great way to break the ice and spread the word about National Puppy Day.

Whether it's obeying a simple command or instilling a foundation for working in any discipline, time spent training is a great way to increase your bond.

5. Seek Out and Participate In a Dog Walk

It doesn't necessarily have to be for National Puppy Day. You could participate in a walk for literally anything. The purpose is enjoying and exercising your dog while having the opportunity to share your story of companionship and bring awareness to National Puppy Day.

6. Have a Puppy Party

Celebrate National Puppy Day by inviting like-minded friends with their puppies to a day of fun and excitement. Enjoy watching them play with each other and maybe even spoil them with a new toys or treat.

7. Adopt a Puppy

This might not be an option for everyone, but if you have space in your home and life for a puppy, do it! 

Hopefully, now that you are aware of the rising need to end the use and success of puppy mills, you can be more vigilant and prideful when observing National Puppy Day!  Even though you may feel your contribution has little effect, it is important to remember that the impact you make on the relationship between you and your pooch is what matters most!

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
