International Dog Day is observed every year on August 26 to encourage ownership of dogs of all breeds. On this day, we look at how a hooman's best friend acts or reacts in different situations

This day is not only a perfect time to reconnect with your furry and friendly family member, but also to consider how you can help society realize the importance of dogs and how should they be treated by humans.

Still, you could use this opportunity to spend time with your dog(s). From taking them to a park to buying them a toy to chew, every dog could use a friend to make his or her day better.
