The first ever German Shepherd day was celebrated in 2011, two years after the death of Peter George de Corban.
1. Charity is an important part of the celebration. Donating to dog rescue/shelter homes in cash and kind is encouraged. Volunteering with such groups is definitely a way to celebrate the day.
2. The Black Forest Gateau/Cake is served in a nod to the breed's origin in Germany. A doggy version of the cake is served to the canines.

Every year we celebrate Women's day, Mother's day, Father's day, birthdays etc then why not a special day to honour a noble breed like the GSD. Our GSDs are a quintessential part of our life and their love and loyalty to us should be celebrated every single day. Due to the busy lives we lead, it is never easy to do so. Hence the importance of keeping aside one day annually to remember and thank our best fur buddies for all the unconditional love and loyalty they shower on us.
By joining us on social media you can show your commitment to the cause. You can celebrate by doing some much needed charity work for GSD/dog rescues/shelters in your area. Donations can be made to such organisations in cash and kind. Treat yourself and your family to a doggy holiday; from going on extra walks with your GSD to playing and organizing fun games and events, pamper your pooch with all the love and attention they deserve. Don't forget to lavish them with toys and a doggy Black Forest cake!!These are just a few ways you can celebrate your best friend's special day!
