Dog Mom’s Day to Be a National Holiday!




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Dog moms are finally getting the recognition they deserve with their own national holiday celebrating women and their dogs. Dog Mom’s Day will be Saturday May 12, which is the day before Mother’s Day. With this separate Dog Mom’s Day, dog moms will be celebrated and honored for their love and devotion without being reprimanded for highlighting their pet parenthood on Mother’s Day.

Dog moms have been asking for a Dog Mom’s Day with this petition spearheaded by Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App, on social media, and on dog blogs for years. Creating this separate day will emphasize the respect for all moms and their right to showcase the love of their kids – fur or not.

“Parenthood of all kinds will now be cherished without consequence, whether you celebrate with macaroni necklaces or slobbery kisses,” said Casey Isaacson, CCO and Co-Founder of Dig.

This national holiday is essential as more women trade in bottles for barks. Government data shows many millennials are choosing to go human child-free or delay having babies until later in life. At the same time, dog ownership and pet industry expenditures continue to rise, and it’s affecting other major facets of society. According to Market Watch and Trust for Public Land, “Dog parks are among the fastest-growing amenities in the 100 largest U.S. cities’ park systems,” and one third of Millennials who bought their first home were influenced by the need to have space for their dog according to SunTrust Mortgage.

“Dogs have gone from outdoor pets to preferred members of the family,” said Leigh Isaacson, CEO of Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App. “It’s a unique and visceral bond that affects our home and social life. It’s not the same relationship we celebrate on Mother’s Day, but to many of us – it is just as important. It deserves to be recognized with its own day for dog moms to be appreciated.”

Dog moms and their pups in NYC can celebrate the inaugural Dog Mom’s Day at d.b.a on Saturday, May 12 from 2 PM – 5 PM. Drinks are free when you download or share Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App. Reserve free tickets here:
