Best Places to Celebrate National Dog Day

Tail waggers rejoice, Monday, August 26th is #NationalDogDay!  While there are several places to spend time with your pup feasting and frolicking around town, here are our favorite ways around DC to celebrate:

Dogs ride free (with an adult ticket) during Yappy Hour at the Capital Wheel.  Catching views on high from climate controlled gondolas is just the start — there will also be drink specials (for humans and canines), swag bags and swimming pools just for the pooches. And if you donate a can of dog food, you’ll receive a $5 discount on the adult ticket price.

Or join in for the Patio Pawty at the St. Gregory Hotel. This free social event features treats from Doggy Style Bakery, but for a $35 donation, it also becomes a fundraiser for Paws of Honor, which provides free vet care and products for retired military and law enforcement K9s. This donation upgrades attendees to the Ulti-Mutt Experience complete with perks like house wine, watermelon cocktails, apps, and even fancier doggy treats.

Dacha’s Navy Yard location celebrates the day with Dogust, an all-day Happy Hour event where Dacha has paw-tnered up District Dogs, Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, & Ollie to treat pets to doggy beers, treats, food samples, toys, and raffled prizes.

What wonderful ways to enjoy the day… with humans and their best friends hanging out together!
