When you have a pup of your own, every day is National Dog Day, right? 

Well, in honor of today, declared National Dog Day, we wanted to pay homage to those furry friends of ours who never say no to a new adventure, whether it be by land or by sea. Because a dog really is the best travel companion you can have. 

We asked Travel Channel fans to share photos of their adventurous dogs with the hashtag #TravelChannelPups. Here's a sampling of the submissions, from paddle boarding pups to four-legged hikers.
