Fast Facts About National Dog Day
National Dog Day is officially observed each year on August 26. It’s a day to honor our loyal, lovable four-legged friends and to express our gratitude for a friendship that’s at least 14,000 years old! Here are fun facts revealed in the official 2019 National Dog Day survey that show just how strong that relationship is.
- California ranks Number One among all 50 states for people who love their dogs the most.
- 85% of respondents said the top reason they love their dog is because it comforts them.
- 86% of dog owners tell their dogs “I love you” at least once a month; 73% buy their buddy a toy once a month; 68% share their bed with their fur buddy and an amazing 39% of women (and 23% of men) say they’d rather spend time with their dog than go on a date!
Why We Love Our Dogs
Survey respondents gave these top three reasons why they love their dogs:
- They lift our spirits
- They teach us valuable life lessons
- They keep us socially connected
The Best Way to Express Your Puppy Love
Every dog deserves a forever home. Our National Dog Day event at Milestone is the perfect occasion to find one. Your dog might not care that our homes for sale in Elk Grove, California are brand new, or that they’re thoughtfully designed with included features inspired by Taylor Morrison homeowners. But we’re pretty sure they’ll love the spacious interiors with lots of room to play fetch. The gathering room will be a favorite spot for quality time with the family or snoozing in the sun. Any dog would be thrilled by the spacious hallways and kitchen with plenty of storage for lots of good treats! And if you’re among the majority of pet owners who share their hearts and their beds, the owner’s suite and up to five secondary bedrooms offered in the Milestone floor plans will meet with approval. (The spa-inspired walk-in shower in your master bath makes for easy dog washing, but your dog may not care for that feature.) Personalizing options are available, too. Be sure to ask a Milestone sales manager to point them out.
All four Milestone home designs are single-story. Neither you nor Fido will have to waste energy racing up and down stairs. You can save it instead for playing outdoors. Select options for covered outdoor living and enjoy playtime in a cool shady spot. And just wait until you and your dog discover how much fun there is to be found beyond your Milestone front porch!
A Walkable Community
Every dog needs fresh air and exercise. Milestone is a wonderfully pedestrian- and pooch-friendly community where sidewalks connect neighbors. There are nearby parks for playtime and miles of nearby trails. There you have it: lots of places to walk and no excuses when your dog brings you the leash.
A Great Location
Elk Grove is one of Sacramento’s most popular locations to call home for some very good reasons (several of which should appeal to you and your pet). It’s an easy commute to downtown Sacramento and beyond, so Rover won’t have to wait too long to welcome you home from work. It’s a pleasant walk to Elk Grove’s historic downtown area where you’re certain to find a café or two that will welcome you and your dog. Your dog will love all the parks. You’ll appreciate the award-winning schools. There are awesome cultural, recreational and dining opportunities. For long weekends, you’re a short drive from the mountains, Lake Tahoe and Napa. Wow. See, great location!
Call It Home
With just 121 homesites planned, Milestone is a warm, charming community where you can get to know your neighbors and enjoy your privacy, too. It’s a rewarding lifestyle for every life stage, whether you’re starting out, moving up or settling into a well-deserved retirement. You’ll have the peace of mind that comes from choosing a builder who has been named America’s Most Trusted™ Home Builder four years in a row! It’s the ideal place for you and your four-legged friends to Live Your Trademark in Taylor Morrison style.
