Enjoy 'National Dog Biscuit Day' with Our Favorite Treats

Good dog balances treats on its nose.

If you are a dog owner, then you'll want to remember this day: February 23rd is National Dog Biscuit Day! Let your dog enjoy this day with these treats!

To our dogs, there's really nothing that can quite say "I love you" like treats can, is there? Yes, dogs love their treats (I can personally attest to that!) -- so, it's not surprising that in the eyes of man's best friend, February 23rd might just be the best day of the year...because it's National Dog Biscuit Day!

National Dog Biscuit Day, which is also known as International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day, is a day where we celebrate, yes, the humble dog biscuit. Unfortunately, no one really knows how this day got started, but we do know that while dog biscuits got their original start in England in the 19th century (after something called "dog bread" was the popular snack given to dogs), it was a man from Ohio named James Spratt who was the first to manufacture dog biscuits on a large scale.

So, whether your pooch enjoys dog treats based on meat products or just the simple 'Milk-Bone', or even homemade dog treats, be sure to throw Fido a few extra treats on this day -- your furry best friend will thank you! Better yet, let them enjoy this day with our favorite pup-approved treats.
