Work Like a Dog Day

Work Like a Dog Day, which is celebrated on August 5, honors people who put in that extra bit of hard work. This day is inspired by the reputed strong work ethic of canines, especially service dogs. Today, pause to appreciate the hard workers who inspired you.

You can celebrate by either working very hard or – if you’d rather – simply by sharing on social media just how hard you work. There are other ways to celebrate too:

1. Put in extra work and color this handout.
2. Watch videos of working dogs doing what they’re trained to do.
3. Learn about the training of working dogs.
4. Make a video about your average workday.
