We decided to mark this August 26 holiday in 2023 with a roundup of favorite products shared by DealNews dog owners. Keep reading to see these National Dog Day deals, along with "aww"-inducing pics of some of our four-legged co-workers! Then take a look at our other pet product deals here.

This life jacket can help keep your dog safe as they unleash their inner Jaws. Plus, you can save a little extra on it by clipping the 8% on-page coupon! Daisy the dog models her own shark life jacket below. "Daisy loves adventure, playing, running, exploring, and swimming," says her owner, DealNewser Ellie. "She's a great swimmer but the life jacket is great when she goes to the lake, down by the river, or riding in the canoe. ... After a swim in the pool, water, bath, or playing in the sprinkler, she's guaranteed to get the zoomies!"

The bed is available in several sizes and color options, and DealNewser Brittany offers her own take: "These are my pups Skye (the tan on the left) and Luna (the gray on the right), and they honestly will fight over who can lay in what we lovingly call 'the poof' — to the point that I had to buy a second one." See Skye and Luna in "the poof" below!

Forget a dozen eggs, how about a dozen dog toys? These ones are listed for aggressive chewers, are $3 off right now, and happen to be at Amazon's all-time lowest price. DealNewser Chuck sent in a photo of his dogs showing off their own pack of toys. "Side eye is Wallace and the other is Callie," he says. "Wallace loves the yellow toys (aka, babies) and Callie loves the pink ones. So much so that she's hidden them, that's why they're not in the pic."
