January is a great month to celebrate dogs!

January is a great month to celebrate dogs!  Birthdays and “Gotcha” days only come once a year, so it’s fun to have other special days to focus on our furry best buds. Check out what January has to offer:

1)      Walk Your Pet Month

Start the New Year off right with healthy attainable goals for both you and your dog. Getting motivated mid-winter not only benefits the waistline, but creates mental stimulation for your pooch and can curb behavior problems. Walking together also creates a nice bonding experience for you both.

If you’re in a snowy climate, be sure to check for ice or ice melt in your dog’s paws. Humans and dogs alike should be careful of slick spots!

2)      National Dress Up Your Pet Day – January 14

Dress-up fun is not just for Halloween anymore! Break out the pirate and alligator costumes – time for Buster to change up his fur for a day. Here’s the perfect excuse to take life a little less seriously and snap some cute photos to share.

3)      Seeing Eye Dog Day – January 29

This special day honors hard-working guide dogs that help the visually impaired navigate through their daily lives. Kind, calm, intelligent dogs spend their days making life easier for many of those in need. Most seeing-eye dogs will work with their owners for up to 10 years. There are roughly 10,000 dog/human partnerships at any given time in the U.S. and Canada.
