National Dog Mom's Day is just around the corner and there's no better time to celebrate the special bond between you and your furry friend. To make this special day memorable, we’ve put together a list of different ways you can celebrate with your dog or other dog moms in your life.

Get other dog moms together for a playdate

If you know any other dog moms, why not use National Dog Mom’s Day as an excuse to get together with your four-legged friends? To celebrate, you could plan a trip to the dog park, the dog beach, or even visit a dog-friendly cafe. Not only is this a great way to catch up with friends, but your dogs will also benefit from the opportunity to socialize with each other. Some of the benefits of letting your dog socialize with other pups include:

Capture some special memories

Another way you can mark National Dog Mom's Day is by capturing some special memories with your pup. Of course, you can always do this yourself using your camera or phone, if you want to take this to the next level, consider hiring a professional. Many photographers specialize in animal photography and have plenty of experience capturing the special moments between pet parents and their pets.

Not only is having a photo shoot with your pup a fun way to spend the day, there are so many different things you can do with the photos when you get them back from the photographer:

Commission a piece of art

Photos aren’t the only way that you can commemorate the bond you and your pup share – there are countless artists that create beautiful pieces for pet parents. The choice of medium is endless, but some popular options include:

Etsy is a great place to search for artists who create custom pieces for pet parents.

Go for a picnic

Going for a picnic with your furry friend can be another great way to celebrate National Dog Mom's Day. There are plenty of options to consider when choosing the perfect spot for your picnic, from dog-friendly parks to beaches or your own backyard. Once you’ve decided on a spot, consider bringing along your comfiest blanket for lounging and some toys for your dog to make the picnic even more fun.

If you want to go the extra mile, you could even create a tasty barkuterie board with a variety of dog-friendly foods, such as fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheeses. If you’re looking for inspiration on what to put on your board, take a look at this post by Freshpet vet, Dr. Aziza.
