There are all kinds of ways to stay active, but we thought we’d bring readers’ attention to National Dog Day, a day to celebrate our furry friends. Events include a disc-throwing competition in Benicia, Calif., a trail walk in Santa Barbara, Calif., and Yappy Hours in a variety of locations – all of which celebrate our pets and promote active living.

Whether it’s a day on the beach or an evening in the snow, there are plenty of chances to keep your pup happy while burning calories. Please visit the National Dog Day website for more information on events and participation.
