Sept. 19th kicks off National Dog Week! Most dog people would say that National Dog Week is every week in their house—but this week is officially dedicated to celebrating our K-9 companions. Believe it or not, National Dog Week is 83 years old (that’s 581 years in dog years). It was founded in 1928 by Captain Will Judy to honor the canines that faithfully served in the military, as well as the dogs that provide loyal, enduring companionship to so many people across the nation.

As dog lovers pamper their pooches this week and look for businesses where their four-legged friends are welcome, we wanted to let you know that TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank® is pet friendly all the time! TD has taken the concept of catering to customers with kids a step further by extending the offer to pet owners who consider their pets children.  Every TD Bank location offers complimentary dog biscuits and fresh water for customer’s companions.  What’s more, in 2010, the bank purchased a company-wide total of 3,011,570 all-natural dog biscuits!

Rover may still bury his treasure in the backyard, but with TD Bank, you don’t have to!
