Unchain a Dog/ Train Your Dog Month
January 1 - January 2
Unchain a Dog Month
“Every dog has his day or month and that month is here! January is Unchain a Dog Month. There is nothing a dog likes better than being free. These beautiful creatures thrive on the love and companionship of their human friends. Being tethered for long hours is detrimental to their physical and psychological health. Unfortunately, many dogs across the globe live in chains, in backyards, in cramped spaces, sometimes battling extreme cold or heat. Unchain A Dog Month was created to spread awareness about these conditions. So, encourage people to bring the dogs in this winter. A home is where they belong.” – National Today

Train Your Dog Month
“In 2010 the Association of Professional Dog Trainers began the National Train Your Dog Month campaign. The APDT thought it was long overdue to dedicate a month to bringing awareness to the importance of socialization and training, and most of all, to inform the public that training your dog can be easy and fun! We selected January as the perfect month because so many dogs and puppies are adopted or purchased from breeders and brought home during the winter holidays. Our desire is to help these new pet parents start off the new year right with their newest family member.” – The ADPT
