National Dog Day is celebrated on Aug. 26 each year, so if you need an excuse to spoil your pooch that little bit more, here it is. From office buddies to our pups have been somewhat of a lifeline throughout the turbulent times of the last year. They’ve been with us through it all, so why not show your furry friend lots of loving this week?

Our canine friends are pretty easy to please (see: belly rubs, tasty treats, and extra-long walkies), but it won’t hurt to gift them with something more creative on the day of pup appreciation this year. After all, they do give us constant joy with their snuggles and super cute faces.

From toys to treats, we’ve rounded up our favorite fun and unique gifts for your pup to enjoy this National Dog Day.
