What is National Dog Mom’s Day?
Mark your calendars for the second Saturday in May, as this is officially National Dog Mom’s Day! Yep, this amazing day is dedicated to dog moms only.
Because as we say, why shouldn’t dog moms have their own day? Dog moms love their pups like real children and bonafide members of the family – because that’s exactly what they are. A dog mom’s love for her pup is unconditional like any mom. Sure, it’s a tad extra sometimes…but that’s all part of the fun!
When did National Dog Mom’s Day begin?
National Dog Mom’s Day is actually a recently established holiday. It first started in 2018 by Dig, the first iOS dating app for dog lovers and dog owners.
The founders of Dig are two dog moms, who wanted a national holiday to thank dog moms for all the love they give to pups. And can we just say…it’s an idea we really dig! Available in the U.S, UK, Canada and Australia, Dig also features a list of dog-friendly parks, bars, and restaurants for the perfect dog-friendly date.
