National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day

We have known and celebrated national holidays in memory or respect of great leaders, nature, and human rights. However, it is interesting to find that there exists a day like the National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. While dog lovers would understand the purpose behind the day, other people might not find any real relevance in the celebration of this day.

They say ‘Every dog has a day’ and perhaps, February 23rd is the day. All you need to do is pick up dog biscuits and reward your dog. The day honors the contributions made by American manufacturer James Spratt, who developed dog biscuits in mid-19th century. The first biscuits he developed include meat and vegetables. Then in 1908, the F. H. Bennett Biscuit Co. of New York developed hard-baked, bone-shaped biscuits comprised of various minerals, cow’s milk and meat products, the Milk-Bone. Ever since then, dog biscuits surged popularity and now they come in large varieties.

The day is often regarded as an opportune day to appreciate the true value of dog biscuits in the canine lives. Without dogs, we rarely have faithful and loyal companions, who shall remain with us in good and bad times. So, make your dog feel special.
