February 23rd is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
you're looking for something to do today then get ready to spoil your
dog because it's International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!
we all know how much dogs appreciate these biscuits! Let's
right into celebrating International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Today is a holiday because if you have a dog, then chances
that you love them and reward them with dog biscuits. Not all holidays
are about humans and today is a day to show your dog how much you
appreciate them. And in turn, your dog will show you how much they
appreciate the dog biscuits... and you, for giving them to them!
"Dog bread" was mentioned thousands of years ago by the
but usually they were referring to a bad bread made from bran, which
was probably given to dogs. But sometimes the Spanish, back in the
early 1600s, would refer to dog bread as something they actually used
to kill dogs!
I'm glad that things changed and if you fast
forward to the early 1800s in England you'll find that someone is
finally manufacturing proper dog biscuits. They were made from grains
and vegetables to give dogs something tasty to gnaw on. And in the late
1800s they started adding meat to these biscuits. I'm sure the dogs
loved that even more! And now we use them today to let our
know that we love them and that they've behaved. We condition them to
realize that they're only going to get a dog biscuit for a specific
reason. Maybe they were good all day, did a trick or behaved while you
did something they don't quite enjoy; like giving them a bath.
But today is different... it's a day of full appreciation! So
fill your day with love for your canine and let them sample many treats
So how can you celebrate today? Well, if you already have a
bunch of dog biscuits then break open a bag and start showing your dog
love! You can still make them do tricks for their treats if
like but give your dog lots of attention today. And if you
own a dog, maybe you can buy a bag of biscuits for a friend's
dog! I'm sure your friend and their dog will appreciate that.
you could go to the store and pick out some new dog biscuits that you
never bought before. Maybe they have new flavors or a really
healthy brand that catches your eye. Buy a few different
and then have your dog show you which ones they like the best.
fact, you could do a little test and see which biscuits your dog goes
for time and time again. Lay two biscuits near each other and
which one your dog eats first. Do a best out of three and
lay the winner next to a different kind of biscuit. After a
you'll start to notice which biscuit your dog really prefers.
that will let you know which ones to buy next time you go to the store!
It doesn't matter how you decide to celebrate today, just
an amazing day for your dog!
