Should you be shamed for shopping for dog gifts on Black Friday? Does your dog really need you to buy him anything? We say yes. Here’s why…

Bet you’ve seen this meme going around social media. Looks something like this…

These are all true, yet…

While it’s so true what our dogs MOST need in life is time well-spent with family and friends, this meme is missing a important point. If you’re going to do all those activities with your dog, you’re going to need some THINGS to make them happen.

One of my jobs is to inspire you to get out there and be active with your dog. But you’re not going to go hiking with him unless you have the proper footwear… So you stay home. Want to take your good boy camping? You need gear.

So go ahead – this Black Friday, leave the guilt of shopping behind and get the things YOU need to have more adventures, more fun and more bonding time with your doggo!
