5 tips to keep your dog happy, healthy, and pampered this National Dog Day


There’s no bad day to celebrate your pet, but National Dog Day, August 26, is giving dog owners an extra special reason to spoil their pups.

“National Dog Day is a great occasion to show your pups some extra love,” Mark Emmer, Chewy’s chief marketing officer, told Good Morning America.

While happiness is important, it’s important to remember other factors that also affect your pet’s overall health, so Good Morning America enlisted Dares Cooper, Petco’s National Dog Training Manager, to share some helpful insights.

“It is important to assess the aspects individually and completely to give your pup the best possible care,” Cooper said. “A holistic health approach includes five pillars, namely physical health, mental health, social health, home health, and accessible health, that help pets live full and rewarding lives.”

Scroll down for five tips for treating your dog happy, healthy, courtesy of Cooper, plus corresponding items you can shop now.
