Bond With Your Dog Day

It’s not always easy to find time for your canine friend. That’s why Tina Elven created a day just for you and your pup.

Every year on May 14th, pet owners everywhere celebrate the bond they share with their best furry friends. 

Bond with Your Dog Day is an annual event that commemorates the connection between humans and canines. It serves as an opportunity for dog-lovers to spend quality time bonding with their four-legged companions – no matter how busy life gets!

History of Bond With Your Dog Day

There are over 470 million dogs in the world. It is hard to know how many of them are in the U.S., but we know that owning a dog brings many benefits to both children and adults. Bond With Your Dog Day is a worldwide awareness day for dog owners to enjoy with their pets founded in 2021 by Tina Elven.

Bond With Your Dog Day provides opportunity for strengthening relationships with dogs. Developing a bond with your dog will make you both feel better. It will be easier for the human and the dog to get along. You will have less frustration, and more happiness on a daily basis..

Our hope is that everyone will come together to celebrate a strong relationship with their dog, whether they have a family pet, work animal, service dog or rescue dog in their everyday life.

Through the Bond With Your Dog Day people can discover how to strengthen their bond with their pup and reap the health benefits for both humans and animals. A strong relationship will help to prevent rehoming or abandonment.
