With July being National Ice Cream month, dogs are getting in on the fun, too.
Mega-retailer PetSmart is hosting two special events for pups to enjoy the cool treat during the dog days of summer.
This Thursday, there will be a free ice cream social in New York City’s Washington Square Park starting at noon. A “Doggie Ice Cream Truck” will be on hand, providing our four-legged friends pup-friendly ice cream. (They will also offer treats for humans, too.)
Instagram celebs Walter Cronkite, a French bulldog living in Brooklyn, and Tinkerbelle the Dog, a rescue turned model, will be at the event.
To commemorate National Ice Cream Day on July 17, PetSmart will also be offering free dog-friendly sundaes at all 203 of its PetSmart PetsHotels locations in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. For local New Yorkers, the treats will be available at 632 Broadway and 517 E 117th Street PetsHotel.
“The ice cream offered every day at our PetsHotel locations is a great example of the true hospitality we provide to our pet guests and in celebration of National Ice Cream Day we wanted to offer this treat free to those that come by our PetsHotel locations on July 17 and take our PetSmart hospitality to others with a one-of-a-kind experience – a pop-up free ice cream social for dogs and their humans in New York City’s dog parks,” said Eran Cohen, Chief Customer Experience Officer, PetSmart. “We are thrilled to help dogs and pet parents beat the summertime heat by serving up cool ice cream treats across the city from our just-unveiled Doggie Ice Cream Truck.”
