Celebrating Spoil Your Dog Day

There’s a pretty great doggy holiday coming up. August 10th is Spoil Your Dog Day! We know, if we could ask Fido, he would probably insist that every day should be Spoil Your Dog Day. He wouldn’t exactly be wrong, either. We love seeing our canine pals getting pampered! A North Dallas, TX vet offers some tips on getting that cute tail going below.


Treats are probably the best way to spoil your dog. Fido definitely has a healthy appetite! Offer your furry buddy something special, like some plain, cooked meat, fish, or chicken. Be sure to remove the skin, bones, and fat!


Toys serve many purposes for dogs, aside from simple entertainment. They keep our canine buddies occupied and active, and give Fido a suitable outlet for any doggy angst he’s feeling. Plus, it’s always super cute to see how excited pups gets when they spot a new toy!


We know, Fido would knock this one off the list if he could. Your pooch may not exactly love being bathed. However, he will be much more comfortable with clean fur. Claw trims and dental care are also important.


Want to really get that cute tail going? Get Fido a doghouse! Choose one that offers great insulation, so it protects your pup from heat, rain, and the occasional cold snap. The doghouse should be about the size of a crate: big enough for Fido to sleep and sit comfortably, without being too roomy. Raise it off the ground a bit to help keep critters out. Just don’t leave an empty hole beneath it.

New Bed

Is Fido’s doggy bed little more than a pillowcase over some squashed stuffing? Get him a new one! It’s actually very important for dogs to sleep comfortably, especially as they grow older. (Tip: orthopedic beds are great for large breeds and senior dogs.)

Kiddie Pool

Texas can be scorching hot at this time of year. Get Fido a kiddie pool to splash around in, or let him play in the spray from a hose.


Man’s Best Friend has a very healthy sense of adventure. Indulge Fido’s taste for exploring by taking him to a new park, or checking out a pretty trail with him.
