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.
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.
According to the American Kennel Club, there are 3 questions you should ask yourself before you make the big decision to welcome a new family member. Unlike brand new pet owners who may not know what it’s like at all to own a dog, second-time pet owners know what it’s like but they might forget how hard the puppy months (or years) were.
Snow can be great fun for pups of all shapes and sizes (with the proper snow gear, of course!), but the ice melt that is used to ensure no one slips and falls is not.
It’s officially Fall, but that doesn’t mean those parked cars are going to be getting cooler anytime soon. Yup, even though the air feels brisker, the sun is still no joke. What would you do if you were left in a hot car? You’d simply unlock the door and get out, right? Dogs don’t have that same luxury.
Isn’t it the worst when your dog starts having a reaction to a certain medication or bug bite and you have absolutely no idea where to begin to give them the help they need? Vet bills are no joke and many of these sorts of medical instances can be treated at home due to their not-so-severeness. Our “What to do” series is designed to educate you on how to get through these accidents so you can keep a clear mind if something happens to come around.
