After all the time pet parents have spent with their dogs over the past year and a half, a recent survey unveiled 72% of American dog owners feel that their bond with their furry friend has strengthened, and 78% said their dog has helped them through some of the most difficult times of their lives*. That’s why, in honor of National Dog Day 2021, Stella & Chewy’s and soccer star and dog mom Alex Morgan have teamed up to give pups across the country the best day ever.
Throughout the week leading up to National Dog Day on Aug. 26, Stella & Chewy’s and Alex Morgan will be sharing tips and ideas for how pet parents can step out of their routine to spend a fun, intentional day with their pups. And, shelter dogs deserve love on National Dog Day, too, which is why Stella & Chewy’s is donating proceeds from a limited-edition “I’d Rather Be With My Dog” hat and matching dog bandana apparel set, in partnership with dog merchandise brand Lucy & Co.
“I’m so excited to partner with Stella & Chewy’s to give pet parents ideas for an awesome National Dog Day this year, and support shelter dogs in the process!” said Alex Morgan. “After being away from my dogs, Kona and Blue, I’m really looking forward to spending intentional time with them. We have some fun activities planned throughout the day, starting with a game of soccer and ending with a cozy evening on the couch.”
Stella & Chewy’s is ensuring dogs have the best doggone National Dog Day by:
“Stella & Chewy’s is all about going above and beyond to give your pet the absolute best,” said Stella & Chewy’s CEO Marc Hill. “This National Dog Day, we want dog parents to show their bond with their dogs loud and proud. Whether you have an adventure-filled day or reward your loyal companion with some Stella & Chewy’s treats, our team is looking forward to seeing how you and your deserving pup decide to celebrate.”
