August is National Dog Month!

Milk-Bone brand (The J.M. Smucker Company) founded National Dog Month in 2020 to recognize all the ways dogs make our lives better. National Day proclaimed National Dog Month to be observed each year in August. So now there is no excuse to celebrate your pooch!!

Did you know that Orlando was named “Best Place for a Dog-Friendly Vacation” because Orlando has more dog-friendly hotels, parks and shops than any other city in the U.S.?!

And with over 71 million households welcoming four-legged friends into their homes last year, it’s no wonder more travelers look to include their furry family members in their vacation and staycation plans.

Here are some of Orlando’s most unique places to stay, play and dine with man’s best friend.

Just for Fun

Sonoma Wool Company Wool Dog Toys

Pets are part of the family, so why give them plastic or heavily dyed toys? Choose these 100% natural wool toys  as an eco-friendly and healthier alternative. There is something about wool that dogs can’t resist. Some dogs just love snuggling with them in their beds, others want to pull them apart (in which case, natural wool fibers are much healthier for your pooch than plastic fibers!) When they get dirty, just toss the balls in the washing machine to clean!

Each is Handmade in California using wool sourced from American family ranches with out any toxic dyes or additives.
