Dog biscuit company Milk-Bone just declared this a thing last year, so if you didn’t know August was National Dog Month, it’s okay! This month goes out to all the dogs: the family-friendly Golden Retriever, the fluffy Chow Chow, the misunderstood Pit Bull Terrier and even those pesky little Chihuahuas. Treat your furry friend to some off-leash fun at Hedgecock Park in High Point, or head to Doggo’s Dog Park & Pub in Greensboro where you can enjoy a drink while your dog participates in group play. If you’re looking for a wide variety of all-natural dog food and accessories, Bark Avenue Boutique & Barkery in Winston-Salem’s got you covered. No matter how you celebrate, show your wet-nosed pal a little extra love this coming month.
