Celebrate National Dog Day!

Today, August 26, is National Day!  JasperandZoe.com would like to offer some thoughts to get your dog to howl with glee.

  • Remember why you have a dog – Make your dog a part of your family. Spend time with him and train him so he’s a pleasure to be around. Love him unconditionally, and rejoice in the love and trust that is returned to you ten-fold.
  • Commit to walking your dog – Walking your dog is not only important for the physical well-being of your dog, but it’s important for your relationship with your dog. It’s opportunity to bond. It’s also good for your own personal well-being to get out, take in some fresh air, and take a break from the hectic human life.
  • Evaluate the canine diet – Is your four-legged best friend getting all the nutrients he needs? Make sure the kibble you feed is high, premium quality. Research and read the ingredients to make informed judgments. Also remember that their ancestors are wolves that live in the wild, so there’s nothing wrong with cooking high-quality meat and offering it with kibble to your dog. At home, we always cook for our Jasper organic and natural foods and serve with high-quality kibble. Please consult with your veterinarian before changing your dog’s diet and to understand any allergies and food sensitivities your dog may have. Just as every person is different, every dog is different.
  • Take care of those canine teeth – Your dog may devour everything you put in his bowl or beg nonstop for treats, but he won’t be able to enjoy everything you offer him if he develops dental issues. There are dental gels in the stores that you can apply on your dog’s teeth daily. Consult your veterinarian for a routine that will ensure your dog’s dental hygiene.
  • Develop a good relationship with your veterinarian – Just like people, dogs need regular medical care; semi-yearly checkups can often result in the early detection of a health problem.

August 26 is National Dog Day!

Did you know that August 26 is National Dog Day? The special day has two goals: to honor dogs for all that they do for us and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse.
The day honors dogs for things that humans can sometimes take for granted.  In addition to giving love and companionship, dogs help us out in countless ways. They are watchdogs for our safety. They lead the blind. Dogs aid in search and rescue, and they seek out bombs and drugs.
The second goal of National Dog Day is to rescue dogs in need. On occasion, dogs need us to save them from homelessness and abuse.
At JasperandZoe.com, we honor dogs everyday, and lend a hand to help dogs in need by contributing a portion of all sales to ASPCA to support the fight against animal cruelty.  Join us in our efforts today by shopping with us!
