Your four-pawed pal doesn’t need to perform award-winning tricks to deserve pampering on National Dog Day, which just happens to be today. The canine celebration was founded in 2004 by pup trainer and animal adoption advocate (and serial holiday creator) Colleen Paige — and 18 years later, pet companies and retailers are taking full advantage of the marketing opportunity.
Pet parents can dedicate a full billboard to their furball with Shoutable for just $45 from Aug. 26 to 28 in select cities, and online pet retailer Chewy is treating shoppers to a $30 e-gift card on orders of $100 or more with the code DOGDAY.
