As a dog parent, you’re always looking for ways to keep your pup entertained and feeling their best. This year, National Dog Week 2018 (Sept. 24-29th) is the perfect time to try out some new activities together.

To celebrate, we created a day-by-day guide to help you and your pup make the most of National Dog Week! Check it out:


Let’s pawty! Kick off the week by throwing your dog a barkin’ bash to show how much you love them. Put out some doggy treats and toys and voila! Invite other pups from the neighborhood and make sure to send them home with a doggy bag!



Go shopping together at pet-friendly stores. What better way to celebrate than with a few new goodies for you and your furry friend? You both deserve it.




Pamper your pooch. Bring them to the groomer for a fresh new ‘do or try giving them a deep clean at home with DIY spa treatments. Try Burt’s Bees 2 in 1 Tearless Puppy Shampoo & Conditioner for a natural approach to your spa day.



Play in the sprinkler! Let your pup dance, jump and run around your backyard while keeping cool. If the moment takes you…maybe you can even jump in too! If you want to get fancy, make sure to check out the Outward Hound Doggy Drencher Toy.



Get cooking! Treat your pup to delicious homemade dog treats you can make from scratch. Check out this recipe for peanut butter dog treats or search online for more DIY dog treat recipes to suit your pup’s taste buds.



Go fetch! Spend your Saturday afternoon having fun and getting active together to burn off those Saturday treats. For a tech twist, try the Nerf Dog Light Up Bash Barbell Dog Toy!




Have a doggy play date! We know that you’re their best friend…but your pup will probably love some playtime with a fellow fur ball. Plus, a play date is a great, low-key way to spend your Sunday. The pups can keep each other occupied while you focus on enjoying your Sunday Funday.

If you truly want to spoil your pup this National Dog Week, why not give them the gift that keeps on giving. The Petzi™ Treat Cam lets you give your pup a treat from wherever you are, or check in with live video to see how they’re doing. You can see, speak, snap and treat your pup — all from your smartphone.
