National Puppy day

Here's National Puppy Day!

Puppies are little angels on earth, with furs instead of wings and tiny barks instead of wands that weave happiness into your life. While we should appreciate these little wonders every day, National Puppy Day is only about them!


When is National Puppy day?


National Puppy Day is celebrated on March 23rd each year in the United States. This day is dedicated to raising awareness about puppies and their needs, as well as promoting the adoption of puppies from shelters and rescues.

The exact origin of National Puppy Day is not well-documented, but it was likely created by animal advocates and enthusiasts to celebrate the joy and companionship that puppies bring to people's lives and to draw attention to the importance of responsible pet ownership. The day serves as a reminder to care for and appreciate puppies and to highlight the many puppies in shelters and rescues that are in need of loving homes.


Who created National Puppy day?


Colleen Paige, an animal behaviorist, animal welfare advocate, and Pet Lifestyle expert, initiated National Puppy Day, National Dog Day, National Cat Day, National Pet Day, National Wildlife Day, etc. That’s why our Li’l paw friends got an extra special day to love and care more. There are lots to talk about puppy habits, routines to enhance their immunity, special care for their growth, mental health, and physical well-being.


Why is National Puppy Day Celebrated?


Puppies bring so much joy and love into our lives and deserve their positive impact. Puppies are full of energy, curiosity, and playfulness, making them the perfect companions for families and individuals. They are also knowledgeable, and with proper training and socialization, they can become well-behaved and obedient pets.

Adopting a puppy can bring a sense of fulfilment and purpose and help improve mental health. Caring for a pet can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and increase happiness and well-being. And, when you adopt a puppy, you're not only giving that puppy a loving home, you're also freeing up space for another pet in need of a home at the shelter.

When considering adding a puppy to your family, it's important to research different breeds to find the best match for your lifestyle and personality. Other species have different energy levels, temperaments, and exercise needs, so it's essential to find a breed that fits your lifestyle.
