June 19 is Dog Dad’s Day
Father’s Day is our annual celebration of everything Dad, but you don’t need kids to be an awesome father. Just look at all the Dog Dads who adopted a rescued pup, then did everything they could to give that animal a safe and loving home!
Now there’s a special day devoted to all the guys raising dogs and puppies, which can require just as much care as human children. Founded in 2018, Dog Dad’s Day is an excellent reason to celebrate the guy who buys the kibble and walks the dogs (while carrying poop) in rain, snow, or shine.
This year, Dog Dad’s Day will be celebrated on June 19, just one day before Father’s Day — and the timing isn’t coincidental. After all, dads and Dog Dads have a lot in common, starting with the fact they love their fur babies just like human children.
Of course, a steady commitment isn’t all these dads have in common. Like regular dads, Dog Dads provide their pups with food and shelter. They prioritize treats, playtime, and toys. Like any good parent, they have the (animal) doctor on speed-dial.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways you can celebrate Dog Dad’s Day this year — because these hardworking pup parents deserve a day of recognition. (Don’t worry Dog Moms; you get your own holiday one day before Mother’s Day in May).
