This time next week is National Puppy Day. If you haven’t already, put the date in your diary.
National Puppy Day is a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. But more importantly, it is a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills.
Dogs NSW, the controlling body of purebred dog breeding and exhibiting in NSW, has a few ideas to help dog lovers mark this special day on Thursday 23 March. Vets whose clients have puppies might want to pass their tips on.
- Buy your puppy a fun, interactive toy or take him/her to puppy day care for some fun exercise.
- Spend time brushing and massaging your puppy, or teach your puppy tricks and obedience skills.
- Have a puppy party and invite all your friends with their puppies. Great for early socialisation skills.
- Make a scrapbook for photos of your puppy’s first year.
- Book a puppy-friendly holiday.
- Register your puppy with a Dogs NSW dog sport/activity.
- Host a community event to raise money for a Dogs NSW Breed Rescue Club.
- Visit Dogs NSW Online Shop to find a gift for your puppy.
