Celebrate National Dog Day This Week



Join the Posh Puppy Boutique as we celebrate National Dog Day on Friday, Aug. 26.

Created to both honor dogs and help adoptable pets find new homes, you can save lives and help make shelter dogs’ lives more comfortable while having fun in the process.

How? By donating pet food, blankets, towels, cleaning supplies, money and the most important gift you can give—volunteer time—to your local shelter or pure breed rescue organization.

The single most important steps you can take are:

· Adopting dogs, especially older ones that have problems finding homes, from local shelters.

· Make sure your pets are spayed or neutered to reduce pet over-population ad lengthen their life spans.

· Ensure your pets are current on their vaccinations and medical exams so they can live long, healthy lives.

· For other steps—including some fun ones—visit http://www.nationaldogday.com/ways_to_celebrate.htm

There are several fun ways to celebrate National Dog Day, too!

For example, you can give your dog a new collar and leash then take them for a nice long, relaxing walk. Consider walking down Olvera Street in Los Angeles while your pet wears our Day of the Dead Handmade Harness ($250). It has hand-stitched details and deerskin lining.

Is your favorite little girl a diva? Get her a Diva Dog Monogram Collar (small only) for $28. Another option is to outfit her with a collar and leash from our Katrina Collection. Collars start at $34 while leashes start at $31.

Another way to celebrate this pet-friendly holiday is by giving your special four-legged someone a new toy. Our designer-inspired toy section has nearly 50 plush toys to pick from, like this Kate Spayed pink purse toy ($12) or this Chewy Vuiton Bone ($15).

A great treat for your pet—every second they spend with you is priceless to them—is to brush them. Groom them with comfort for yourself by using our Ergonomic Rake With Rotating Pins Brush ($25). The special ribbed handle gives greater control and helps reduce fatigue while the pin design remove loose hair and tangles with ease.
