20 Cute Dog Videos For National Dog Day That You Need To See

You know those days where you desperately need something to cheer you up? Maybe you had a negative discussion at work, maybe someone said something rude to you, maybe you were fighting with your significant other, or maybe you didn't feel well. Whatever the case, on those days it's nice to have something comforting, relaxing, and entertaining to come home to. And that something? It can definitely be cute dog videos.

According to Psychology Today, research has shown that dogs genuinely do make humans happier: owning one, petting one, playing with one, and even watching one can raise our levels of oxytocin and make us feel more relaxed and put us in a better mood. Of course, the best thing to do is to be with a dog in person, but if you can't do that, a great video is a nice substitute. Fortunately, there are plenty of dog videos out there that you can watch to improve your mood and reduce your stress.

And even if you aren't in need of a mood-booster, it's still fun to watch dog videos! They can make a good mood better, they can be entertaining to show off to friends, and they can just be enjoyable to watch — you really don't need a concrete reason to get lost in an internet black hole of dog videos. That said, allow me to share some of the most adorable dog videos on the internet for your viewing pleasure:
