Huntsville is one of the most dog-friendly cities I know. With so many fun pet activities around, it can be hard to choose how to celebrate National Pet Day with your furry friend.

Luckily, I’ve broken the process down into three easy steps below. Plus, I tried these activities out on my Pyredoodle, Teddy, so they’re 100% dog-approved.

1. Head to the dog park

Teddy and I started off the celebration at Dog Spot Park. He loves the large dog area because he has plenty of room to play.

2. Grab a pup cup

I could not celebrate National Pet Day without grabbing a pup cup from Piper Leaf + Tea Company. Their pup cup features whipped cream with a strawberry topping and is the ultimate way to treat your dog.

You can also grab a pup cup from Starbucks, and Southerland Sno Depot even has a pup snow cone.

3. Visit a pet store

After Teddy exercised and got a pup cup, we rounded up our celebration at Hollywood Feed. I got him a beef lung, and he devoured it!
