4 Reasons July 4th Isn’t a Dog’s Holiday


It’s about that time of year again. Yep, the 4th of July!  Can you believe it? It feels like 2018 arrived just yesterday and, here we are, halfway through the year already. While including your pet in on the exciting events of the holiday are okay, there are certain boundaries you need to be aware of for the sake of your pets’ safety. Check out these 4 reasons why you should keep your dog inside on July 4th.

Hiking with your Dog


I’m proud to say that I feel as though I’ve mastered the “bring your dog hiking” challenge. Not only do you have to worry about them getting dirty (I might be working on that one still…), but you’re also constantly on alert for other dogs and BUGS. Oh man, the bugs. Ticks and spiders haunt me, but they should never be a reason you or your pet don’t venture outside and explore nature! For those of you who want to test the waters (or trails) with your pups this summer, here are the top 3 hiking must-have’s while being one with nature with your dog.

The weather was perfect and made spending a full day on a boat worth every second, but it managed to bring back some not so fun memories…

Benefits of Taking Your Dog for a Walk


One of my favorite ways to start the day is getting up and heading straight out the door with my dog, Savannah, for our morning walk around the block. Not only does this get out all the one’s and two’s for the first part of her day, but it also makes me feel good about beginning my day with productivity – especially when Monday rolls around (even on a day that is sharing the total solar eclipse *cue Bonnie Tyler*).
