International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day

When : Always February 23rd

International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day is a day for the dogs. And, that's because there is no one else who can really appreciate the true value of a dog biscuit. They say "Every dog has his day". And, it will definitely be his day,when you give him some tasty dog biscuits.

You might appreciate their value in pleasing your dog, as a reward for behavior, or enticing them to do a trick. But, the dog is the recipient of the treat.

Celebrate today by giving your dog a few dog biscuits.

Origin of International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. It wasn't a dog. It had to be a dog owner. In any event, it appears that holidays and specials days are "going to the dogs".

Why this is an "International" day, we may never know.
