Hip-hip hooray for man's best friend (and their dads!) on National Dog Dad Day this June 15! This woof-tastic day was initially celebrated in the year 2018 after years of loving dog moms having their special day. It was about time to honor the dog dads of the world and the special bond they share with their four-legged companions. On this day, we strut our stuff with our favorite canine companions, spoil them with their preferred treats, and truly celebrate the unbreakable bond between a dog and his dad. So, get the leashes and the squeaky toys ready – let’s celebrate all you paw-fect dog dads out there!
