Celebrate National Dog Day on Monday, August 26 with your furry friend by your side. Bond with your dog and bask together in the glow of summer in Colorado at a park. Chatfield State Park and Cherry Creek State Park [HR1] are great destinations that provide off-leash areas for your pup to get his/her run on, as well as a refreshing swim.
Should you and your pooch take a jaunt to a park with a lake or reservoir, it’s always a good idea to bring along a dog life jacket, which gives your dog the chance to enjoy the water without becoming over-exerted. Don’t forget to be considerate to other park-goers and pick up after your friend. Try strong, affordable and earth-friendly Earth Rated PoopBags.
Whether you choose to celebrate with your pooch indoors or out, treats are a must! Kong, a local company headquartered in Golden, Colo., makes a wonderful treat perfect for hot summer days. Kong Easy Freeze Kit comes with a freeze tray and a variety of mix packets to create hydrating frozen treats for your dog. If you’re practicing a new trick for National Dog Day, try using Zuke’s Mini Naturals, made in perfectly bite-sized portions, as a training aid. Zukes, out of Durango, Colo., makes top-quality dog treats out of meat, fruit, and veggies.
