National Dog Day + Giveaway!

 Today we have created a very special post for you (and your favorite canine). Did you know that this Monday, August 26th is National Dog Day? This one day per year is officially recognized to commemorate your furry favorites and it's even recognized by the New York State Legislature as such. All over the world there are celebrations and events that honor all breeds of dogs.
The Grommet is happily celebrating this day as well and we'd like to highlight a few of our staff's picks for the best Grommets for your dog. Check out our favorite Grommets for your pup and let us know which you'd like to win (we're giving away a $50 gift card to shop. See below)!
National Dog Day - giveaway
Max & Zoey - This double dog leash is a super problem solver. You can walk two dogs at once, tangle free. Safe, practical and convenient. We couldn't agree more.
National Dog Day - giveaway
Aikiou Junior - This special dog bowl is more than just a bowl. It's an enriching experience for your dog. It's a food  bowl that helps the dog release their inner wild as they hunt and work for the food while eating.

WaterDog - This outdoor water fountain for your dog is easy to install (just attach to a hose spicket) and it actually senses when your dog is near and when it leaves. No need for someone to be there to turn it on and off for them.

Soggy Doggy - National Dog Day


Soggy Doggy - a super shammy for your dog! This textured, chenille shammy slides over your hands like mittens and it's actually fun to clean off your dog after a romp outside. The dogs even enjoy it too.

  • Mary Says:

    The Soggy Doggy super shammy is exactly what my dog needs. After his bath, he runs around rubbing his face on anything he can find. Usually the carpet. He looks like he is on some sort of hallucinogen. He pushes one side of his face along the carpet and then runs around and finds another spot and pushes the other side of his face across the carpet. No matter how dry we get it with a towel he still does it. It is a real hoot to watch. thanks for the cool shopping site, Mary

  • Cyndi Dullnig Says:

    Aikiou Junior!! My little Malti-Poo Lucy, is so curious and always finding games to entertain herself! She would love this game bowl!!

  • Lee Says:

    We just took our 2 little dogs to the beach and on a small boat - the super shammy would be great for them after the ocean, sand and woods!

  • Mary Says:

    The towel would be lovely for sure!

  • Mimi Says:

    Oh this doggy shammy is simply super! My senior Chis just love a Chi brushdown which is what we call it, and add the softness and all over feel of the shammy...heaven!!!!! ( contributing commenters Sparky and Gigi!)

  • mary lynn Says:

    I would love to win the abo gear seat cover.

  • Deana Goben Says:

    ABO Gear Car Seat Cover would be PERFECT for my Chihuahua mix! She's quite the shedder, and her short hairs weave their way into the fabric of my car seats. The hairs are almost impossible to get out! Why didn't I think of getting one of these earlier?!?

  • Paula Says:

    I love the double dog leash! We rescued two dogs from our local dog rescues and this would make the daily walk so much easier!!

  • Trisha Says:

    Our portuguese water pups love the outdoors and they have a pool but I think they would love having the WaterDog Outdoor Water Fountain. No more bugs, leaves, dirty balls mucking up the pool Fresh clean water wheeeeeeee

  • Hugh J.Hodgden Says:

    I really understand that a dog, just like a human, is the only one to know when its thirst will come on, so it is important that the dog can quench that thirst on demand. That makes the faucet drinking fountain not only functional, but especially appealing to a dog lover

  • Laurie Says:

    Would love to have the "Water Dog". There would always be fresh water for my 3 puppy dogs!

  • Bonnie Washel Says:

    The SOGGY DOGGIE super shammy would be a perfect addition to our home. I could just keep it by the door instead of a basket full of old towels. Rain and snow will be the norm here in Ohio soon enough.
    I like all of these pooch friendly items and I just love the Grommet!
    Thank You!

  • Katharine Says:

    The soggy doggy is a wonderful idea! This would be great gor my labradoodle after her day at the "home" spa.
    Drying will actually be enjoyable!

  • Suzanne Says:

    My Lucie would love them all but most especially the WaterDog. When we are in our pool, we constantly have to leave the hose on for when Lucie gets thirsty. It would be nice to have this for her, especially when we're not even outside and she is!

  • Adrianna Allen Says:

    The Waterdog. Such a great idea and a great way to get my dogs fresh cool water on our hot summer days here in South Texas.

  • Michelle Says:

    The Aikiou Junior bowl. My little dog would just love it! She likes to eat her food out of her puzzle ball or out of another toy. She rarely will eat out of her bowl. Anything that would challenge her to eat would be great!

  • Gretchen Says:

    My grand-dog (7 months old) really would love the Waterdog faucet! He is about to move into a house with a fenced back yard so water at his beck and call would be perfect!

  • Kim Hudson Says:

    The Aikiou is the best idea for a pet. They need something to interest and challenge them just like all "humans" do! It gives them something to do while I'm gone and haves them ready for their walk when I get home....a win win.

  • Patricia Strunk Says:

    The Bowl is just what the doctor prescribe for my Grandpuppy!,he gets crazy in the few hours he is alone betwwe the times that my daughter and son in law get home! He is such a darling dog! When ou there but a SHARK when is left alone so if he can play and work with that bowl for a little while will be great!

  • Peggy Huscher Says:

    I run a doggy daycare. My clients look to me to be an expert on all products for canines! We do a lot of bathing. I would love to try one of these, as I'm sure it beats a whole pile of towels. :) Peggy

  • Chris Says:

    I've seen these Soggy Doggy towels and hear they work great! My corgis, bathed ingrquently, are also crazy after being wet--this would probably keep the bathroom walls dry. So I'm tempted, winner or "loser".......thanks! Chris and 3 corgis...

  • Ariana DuFloth Says:

    Definitely the WaterDog would be most useful around my house. I have two Border Collies that are constantly on the go. I also have a hot sunny backyard that makes keeping a bowl of water cool nearly impossible. I know they would appreciate a WaterDog faucet!

  • Jim Says:

    My little guy Rhett would love any of the above featured items, but I think he would especially like the Soggy Doggy. He loves to get a rub down, just like his master LOL.

  • Jayne Says:

    I would love to have the Soggy Doggy super shammy!!

  • Jayne Says:

    I would love to have the Soggy Doggy Super Shammy!

  • Bonnie Washel Says:

    I certainly think the soggie doggie shammy and rug would be an awesome addition to our home. I would get the x-lg rug for the door and one reg super shammy. Rain an snow will be here soon in Ohio. And these items would be such a help amuchmore attractive than a basket of ratty towels by the door! Don't you agree??
    Thanks for this site. It ROCKS!

  • Gail M. Ferguson Says:

    Diva would love the water dog that attaches to the hose spigot so when she runs around the yard protecting our home she can comfortably and safely get a refreshing drink of water! She has freedom of the entire yard and the neighbors even enjoy the security of her watching of our homes. We always provide her with a bowl of water but many days it gets too warm before we arrive home.

  • Karen Says:

    The double leash is a great idea. It would really help a lot when I babysit my neighbors dog.

  • Susan Says:

    Just gave my hubby a cute puppy for his b'day.
    This would be a great and fun addition to our only the best gor our new puppy !

  • Charles Woznak Says:

    The Soggy Doggie shammy would be great for Vixen, our fresh from dog jail pup.

  • Debra Says:

    My dog would love a Aikiou Junior . He loves to hunt for his toys and treats when they are hidden in something. I think it's because of his breed-Miniature Dachshund. It's just hilarious to watch him, his tag wags a million times a minute. This would be a wonderful gift for him.

  • Phyllis Says:

    The Aikiou looks like a fun thing to watch your dog use. Could be some good exercise for her too. Do you think it would help keep the human babies out of the dog's food?

  • Jennifer S. Says:

    The Soggy Doggy (super shammy) would be AWESOME and come in handy (pun somewhat intended) when trying to dry off the dog and would hopefully also help to cut down on the "wet dog" smell. It'd be PERFECT and if I could be so lucky to win, then I would gladly purchase more as gifts and I would definitely tell other dog owners about this great product!!

  • Lillian Truax Says:

    The water dog is just what bear and max need, when they are outside there always knocking over their water dish , and I worry when we are not at home to take care of it and this just looks perfect

  • Courtney Says:

    My pups would love the double leash!! :)

  • Joni Says:

    The water dog would be a problem solved! We have Bennelli and her grandmother Jessie big lads that drink alot,

  • Adam Says:

    My dog Maia needs the WaterDog faucet. She and her friends love running around outside and stepping in and playing with the water bowl before they drink from it. This would keep them hydrated with clean water. Such a great product.

  • Sarah Says:

    Aikou bowl is just about the absotively positively most perfect-est thing in the world. It will probably stop him from wanting to eat his food and dropping rice all over my tan carpet and making us step on soggy rice throughout the day as well...

  • Jennifer Wenzel Says:

    My 16-year-old dog Bunky would love the mental challenges provided by an Aikiou Junior! It's the perfect size for him. As an elderly dog, he tends to do a lot more laying around basking in the sun or snuggled under blankets on the bed. This means he doesn't need to eat as much as before when he was younger and more active. To give him the opportunity to work a bit for his yummy food would both enrich his mind and his body. Thanks! ~Jennifer in MN

  • Deborah Says:

    Hello, we just got a new Bichon, her name is Daphne. She's so playful and fun to be around but hates to get her feet or anything else wet, Lol. She loves to be up in my lap and vigorously dried off. The Soggy Doggy Super Shammy sounds wonderful! I think she would love it and I would stay a little drier in the process as well :)
    Would love to try the Soggy Doggy Super Shammy out.
    Thank you for the chance to do so:)

  • Peggy Says:

    The Soggy Doggy shammy would be great for our 4 dogs! We go thru tons of towles on their bath day to get all 4 dry enough for the house, then Tinkerbell always has to make a last dash at the sprinkler system before she's ready to settle down! I have loved everything purchased from Grommet, and now it's time for the dogs!! Thanks for a great site! Peggy D.

  • Jacque Says:

    The Soggy Doggy would be wonderful for my miniature poodle, Troi Poodlemalu. Her long flowing hair (just like Troy Polamalu's) takes forever to dry. I wonder if he ever has that problem? Having the Soggy Doggy to soak up the extra moisture after bath time would cut drying time down significantly, I bet!

  • Edie Says:

    My pup would love the Soggy Doggie towel. He loves, loves, loves getting dried off and this would be perfect.

  • Sharron Says:

    I would love to win the double dog leash or the Aïkiou dog bowl. My dogs take everything out the dog door and tear it all up. Maybe if they spent a little more time trying to eat, they won't have so much time to destroy all my stuff.

  • Julie Says:

    ABO Gear. We now have 2 German Shepards that go wherever we go, you can imagine the dog hair in my car. But we love them

  • evangeline Says:

    The Aikiou Junior reminds me of our must do "Easter Egg Hunt" for our dogs. Each year we fill a few plastic eggs with dog treats, leaving several empty and enjoy seeing our dogs hunt and "paw" open those with treats. This family tradition came about many years ago when we set out eggs for our granddaughter and the dogs were running around hunting and opening eggs too. Now our dogs (3), grand dogs (2) and grand children have separate hunts. Seems like this item would keep the fun year round. Thank you for bring happy memories to mind and to your wonderful site.

  • Lori Says:

    The Aikiou Junior looks like it would be perfect for my girls. They eat so fast they choke sometimes. With this they can slow down and learn too!

  • Donna Says:

    I would love the Aikio Junior for my dog Abby. She is so picky passing by her bowl during the day hoping for something better. This would make eating fun.

  • Deb Says:

    New pup came home yesterday and today the rains began. An Oregon pup really needs the soggy doggy!

  • Mary Says:

    I'd love to win the ABO Gear - the rear car seat cover.

  • Isabel Says:

    The abo gear would be perfect for cody. When he jumps in my car after a beach walk or a hike I'm left with a mess that's hard to clean up and any towel I put on through seat he turns into a nest!

  • Narda Young Says:

    The Soggy Doggy would be awesome!!!!!! Sure would make bath time a lot easier.

  • Teresa Chapman Says:

    The water dog would be perfect for my two dogs, Hoss and Murphy. They have to be outside during the day when I am at work and sometime I worry they don't drink enough water. Thanks for the opportunity to win. :-)

  • Chelsy Says:

    The soggy doggy would be great for my dogs as well! Regular towels just don't quite cut it for sopping wet long haired pups. So happy to see the grommet celebrating national dog day!

  • Jean Says:

    The Max and Zooey would be a great thing for my favorite poodles.
