Ha! It’s not like any of us “dog-lovers” need a reason to spoil and love our dogs…but we get one anyway! Every year during the fourth week of September our Nation celebrates our dogs with a week-long spoiling and loving journey. National Dog Week was first created by author Captain William Judy in 1928. Today, we celebrate by giving little extra treats to our four-legged best friends.
If you need help deciding what to do for National Dog Week this year, we’ve put together our TOP 3 PICKS of local dog-lover businesses to explore! Happy National Dog Week to you and yours!

Jack’s Snacks, A Dog Bakery | 158 Greenwich Avenue, Warwick, Rhode Island | (401) 633-5522
Jack’s Snacks was created based on a love of dogs and a love of baking for dogs! Established in Rhode Island in May, 2004, Jack’s Snacks is named after “Jack”, a ten year old black lab mix. Jack was rescued in Malibu, California when he was just two years old! After having had five previous owners in that two-year time period, he became the inspiration and love of his owner’s lives! Sadly, Jack passed away unexpectedly in 2006 around the Thanksgiving holiday. Jack’s Snacks owners now say, “Jack lives on through the biscuits, his legacy”. SHOP NOW

The goal of A Golden Wish is to raise money to support Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study (GRLS), which is making strides to cure canine cancer. Faye Silverman, Founder of A Golden Wish, created this business out of pure love and devotion to the quality of life for Golden Retrievers and all dog breeds everywhere.
