Sneak Peek: National Dog Day!

August 26 is National Dog Day! And Webkinz is making it golden! We’re celebrating dogs by making the virtual version of the Webkinz Classic Golden Retriever available for one day only!

National Dog Day
If you missed this adorable plush pet when it was available at Ganz eStore, August 26 is your chance to add the virtual Golden Retriever to your Webkinz Classic family.

Like all virtual Webkinz pets, the Golden Retriever comes with a Pet Specific Item (PSI) and Pet Specific Food (PSF). This darling dog loves cooling off during the dog days of summer in its Golden Retriever Pool, and it can’t resist its favorite Golden Pancakes.

National Dog Day
And of course, if you’d like to adopt a virtual Next Golden Retriever, it can be found in the Next Adoption Center! It comes with three Sparks that can be combined with another pet’s Sparks to spark adorable Webkinz babies!


If you want to celebrate National Dog Day by adopting a Golden Retriever, you can find the Webkinz Classic virtual version at Ganz eStore and in the WShop for ONE DAY ONLY, August 26, 2022.

    To be clear, this is just talking about buying the Classic virtual pet, right? It doesn’t come with the Next version?

    • Sally Webkinz says:

      The Classic virtual pet is available at Ganz eStore. It does not come with a code for a virtual Next pet. The virtual Next pet must be purchased directly from the shop in the Adoption Center on Webkinz Next.

    Wish this had been done for the Lion odd holiday as well.

    • Sally Webkinz says:

      If the plush is still available to purchase, it’s safe to assume that the virtual will not be available for individual sale.

        That’s hard on players outside the US/Canada as you won’t send the plush to us. We can’t buy these unless they go off individual sale and you then have a sale on them in Next. I wanted the grey cat and the giraffe, but can’t currently get them. Amazon don’t sell them and neither does anyone else outside the US as far as I know.

        • Sally Webkinz says:

          Retailers have to request product in order to sell it in their stores. Stores won’t request unless they think they can sell them, so asking stores to stock Webkinz is the best way to increase the availability of product.
