National Dog Mom Day Is May 8th

Author: Jennifer Houghton

As a native West Virginian I know the backstory behind Mother’s Day. But did you know there’s a National Dog Mom Day?

Back in 2018, the personal dating app Dig – an app designed for people with dogs – established the holiday. National Dog Mom Day happens the Saturday before Mother’s Day.

While the pandemic may still limit some of the things that can be done to celebrate, we think that any holiday that involves your dog is a winner.

And according to a survey by, 3 out of 4 ladies consider themselves dog moms, not just pet parents. 

So, it is no wonder that the holiday would gather attention as dog moms are celebrated for the care and love they provide their furry kids. 

Don’t forget to post your pictures online with the hashtag #dogmomsday. We may not be fully out and about with our pets, but we can flood the internet with pictures of our pooches!

Let celebrate you and your pet this Dog Mom Day with this video highlighting the relationship.
