hugdogdayNational hug your hound day is celebrated annually on the 2nd sunday in september.  This day is dedicated to celebrating the bond between you and your dog.  National hug your hound day is about truly observing your dog (from their point of view) in their environment and everyday life and for just one day to see the word as your dog sees it.  As you celebrate your beloved dog , remember that today is about keeping our dog’s healthy, happy and safe at home and in our hearts.

History of the National Hug Your Hound Day

National hug your hound day, an “unofficial” national holiday, was created by Ami Moore, author, dog trainer and canine behaviorist.  Her desire is to make america more “pup friendly”, as it is in europe.  She would like for our dogs to be accepted in more places, especially public ones such as taxis, malls and restaurants and to appreciate the companionship our dogs give us and the value of it, both emotionally and physically.
