I’ll be the first person to admit it: I’m kind of obsessed with my dog. He’s definitely not perfect, but he’s special, and I love him with all of my heart.

I’m sure plenty of you feel the same way about your dogs. Today is National Dog Day. That means it’s a full day to celebrate dogs! There are many ways to celebrate. You could spend some time taking your dog on a special outing or walk. You could try out a few bonding activities with your pooch. You could donate to a dog-related charity like the ASPCA. Or you could buy your doggo something nice that both of you can enjoy together. Because really, what better way to celebrate your pet is there than by treating him or her to a special gift?

I’ve rounded up some of the most special dog-related items on the internet so you can take a gander at what’s out there. I tried to choose only items that feel very special and unique.
