Shop Houzz: Show Your Pet Some Love

Your furry constant companion loves to sleep wherever you are in the house. Look for a stylish pet bed that you won’t want to hide in a corner. Any old bowl won’t do for a pet who feels like part of the family. Serve up kibble or kitty food and water in a posh way. Elevated bowls help large dogs eat without having to bend. Whether it’s a game of fetch, chewing on rope or climbing, dogs and cats like to exercise and be entertained. These pet toys will inspire playtime and look good, too.

RVing with Dogs

After 4 years living full-time in the Fifth Wheel Trailer and countless short trips in our camper van we have learned a few things about RVing with dogs. In the following sections you’ll learn some of the main things to consider when RVing with Dogs and tips we have discovered along the way. Switching a dog from brand to brand can many times cause digestive problems, not something you want on a road trip! We made sure our dogs were eating and accustomed to a type and brand of food that was available in the PetSmart chain. Make sure you take along enough prescription medicine for your whole trip, our dogs are on prescription flea control medication. You know what they say ” A tired dog is a good dog” and this is even more true when RVing. Many times the dogs will have to stay behind in the rig. Sometimes it’s because we are going shopping and they can’t be left in a sunny truck or it’s a hike in National park and no dogs are allowed. TipsIf you have a neighboring RVer with dogs see if you can switch off with them on checking out the dogs while your out. This is super important! We as RVers with dogs don’t want to lose the privilege of bringing our dogs. The worse part by far of RVing with Dogs is the extra cleaning that is needed inside the trailer. Ours is worse than others because we have two dogs and they both are a shedding type of breed. Set boundaries in side the rig where the dogs may go.

When you have to give your pet away

Every time the question arises, Stith patiently explains that Cookie has moved on to a better place – far, far away. Priorities change, finances change and, in some instances, pet owners must find new homes for their furry companions. In the 2011-2012 survey for the American Pet Products Association, pet owners said they expected to spend $254 on dog food and $220 for cat food. Of course, aging pets and emergency care bring additional expenses. If the original owner plans to help pay for pet care, avoid a potential conflict and work out a system up front. There are no ‘loaner pets’: Marcia Watkins somewhat reluctantly agreed to take in Cookie, thinking the situation would be short-term. Share medical and behavioral history: Be honest about any medical or behavioral issues your pet has. Vaccination records are essential, especially if the pet has to travel as Cookie did. True confessions about behavior issues, such as a dislike for cats or a bit of incontinence, help ease a pet’s transition to its new digs. Settling in takes time: Like people, pets must adjust to a new routine, especially if the new owner already has pets. Avoid the issue by planning ahead: To avoid dealing with a “Me or the dog,” conundrum, Atlantan Shawn McElroy weeds out pet lovers at the beginning of any relationship. Now she weeds out pet lovers when reviewing online dating profiles.

10 DIY Beds For Your Loving Pet Friends

Taking care of a pet is easy but you have to take into consideration certain needs that your pet has. A lovely idea of a bed for either a cat or a small dog would be to use an old table and to give it a makeover. Add a small mattress or something soft for your pet to sit on and the miniature canopy bed is complete. You can also make a nice bed for your pet out of a wooden pallet. Once you build the bed, you can personalize it by writing your pet’s name on it. An old suitcase would also be a great bed for a dog or a cat if the suitcase is small. Add four feet to raise it off the ground, add a pillow and the bed is done. If you want your pet to sleep in style, you can use a wooden pallet to make a beautiful platform bed. If you don’t want to give up more floor space or if you simply want to save some space or to integrate your pet’s bed into the décor, you can try to incorporate it into your dresser or nightstand. It’s a pet bed made out of an old console TV. What you have to do is remove everything but the frame and turn it into a little miniature house for your pet. We now return to pallets and we present you yet another pet bed that you can build yourself. Then make a pillow for the bed to serve as a mattress.

#RememberTheRescue Contest

We received over 7,400 entries for the challenge and we couldn’t be more grateful for all the rescue pet parents who submitted their rescue pet photos and stories. Thank you all for advocating for pet adoption and orphan pets. First Place – Cappy, Personal Rescue, Prize will go to Homeless Pets Foundation, Marietta, GA. I was helping my father evacuate from Key Largo when Hurricane Irma was close behind. A fire truck had to come and we waited 4 hours in the grass for a tow truck. Once my dad’s truck was impounded, we continued the drive to Orlando with Cappy in my lap. We put him on 6 different antibiotics twice/day and he is now in stable condition, devouring his canned prescription food, slowly gaining weight and even running around and snuggling with our 3 other rescue dogs. Cappy will have dental surgery on Sept 28th, when they will remove his canine and his other rotting teeth! Without our breakdown on the highway, I have no doubt Cappy would’ve died that evening. If he had survived, he would’ve had to survive Irma one day later on his own. His survival meant so much more to me than anything else in that moment. Now, he can finally stop working so hard to survive and we can shower him with the love and attention he has never received! He is more special than words can explain. First Prize: $5,000 from Petco Foundation, 1,000 pounds of Blue Buffalo pet food and 100 Kong toys. Third Prize: $1,000 from Sydnee’s Grooming, 1,000 pounds of Blue Buffalo pet food and 100 Kong toys.

Basic Dog Training Tips for Beginners

From basic obedience commands to advanced tricks, dog training is a rewarding and engaging experience for you and your dog. The following types of training should be considered as absolutely essential for every dog owner. TOILET TRAINING. If your dog spends any time indoors, toilet training is an absolute necessity – for very obvious reasons! Toilet training is often a time of trial and stress for everyone involved. OBEDIENCE TRAINING. Teaching your dog basic obedience is also a necessity. While an obedient dog is a pleasure to be around, the opposite is also true – a disobedient dog can be a real pain! You can take your dog’s training to a much higher level if you choose to, of course. This basic command helps you to keep control of your dog no matter the situation, and is a good command to teach first. Teaches your dog to immediately come to you upon your command. There are a number of dog-training methods available for teaching your dog these commands, but we recommend positive reinforcement as the best method. This method of training makes learning more enjoyable for your dog, and will help to strengthen the bond between you and your pet. START WITH THE BASICS. Teaching your dog the basic commands of obedience will make your household a much more pleasant place. Your dog will be happy because it wants to please you, and because it wants to reap the rewards of good behaviour.

Giving Up Your Pet

It is a huge decision to give away your pet, no matter how long or brief the period of time of ownership. Remember, for whatever reason you no longer are choosing to keep this pet, YOU are the person in this world who loves your pet more than anyone else and YOU no longer want your pet! First ask yourself if there is anything about your pet behaviorally or personality-wise that could be worked on in order for you to keep him. Take your pet to the veterinarian for a check-up, vaccinations, and, most importantly spaying/neutering! If you were thinking that your pet might make a good breeding animal, STOP! Why breed from an animal that no-one wants anymore? Why make more unwanted animals in a world where even great pets dont remain very long in their first homes? You want someone to adopt your pet as a COMPANION, not because it might make a good or profitable breeding animal. You are much more apt to find a responsible, permanent home by placing an already sterilized pet. Spaying and neutering also reduces the risk your pet will run away from its next home, and helps to insure that your pet won’t urine mark his new home and thus become quickly unwanted again! If your pet is already spayed or neutered, and has not bitten anyone,try to find a new home for your pet through advertising. Be completely honest about all your pet’s behaviors, good and bad. No pet is perfect, and people are more likely to adopt a pet they know about, for better or worse. When screening callers, tell every caller that someone has already come to look at your pet, but you are still taking names and telephone numbers and references, in case, so you can call them back. Include your pet’s name and include his best traits, his most endearing qualities, and some guidelines for the best possible home: i.e., no small kids, someone whos home a lot, no other pets, good for experienced dog owner, etc. If your pet is aggressive, or has nipped or bitten someone, EVER, then please get a professional behavioral evaluation before giving away your pet. Check with state and local laws, too, about liability in re-homing a pet with prior knowledge of aggression. If your pet has a behavior problem, he’ll take it with him to the next home. Contact a trainer or behavior counselor and see if its not possible to work things out so you can keep your pet.

Traveling With Your Pet Bird

If you wish to bring your pet bird into or out of the United States you will need to meet certain criteria under CITES and the WBCA and obtain a permit from the Service. When you later apply for a permit to import/export your pet, report the Designated Port you select on your application form, or submit a copy of your Designated Port Exception Permit. Once you have obtained all necessary permits and authorizations and are ready to travel, contact the Wildlife Inspector at the appropriate Port at least 72 hours in advance to make an appointment for the inspection and clearance of your pet. At the appointment you will present your pet, your permits, the Declaration form 3-177, and any other required documentation for inspection. The Service issued regulations implementing CITES, the WBCA, and the ESA that provide for permits to allow the export and/or import of certain pet birds. The Branch of Permits will review a complete application to ensure your pet and the proposed activity meets the criteria for a permit. The Branch of Permits may issue one permit document with multiple authorizations under more than one law if your pet is listed under both CITES and WBCA. Permit application processing time averages 60 days. If your pet bird is listed under CITES Appendix I, you will first need to obtain a CITES import permit from the foreign country. CITES/ WBCA Pet Passport: This permit type is for U.S. Residents and authorizes multiple border crossings out of and back into the United States under CITES and the WBCA; it remains valid for three years. WBCA/ CITES 3 Year Multiple Use Import Permit: This permit type is for residents of foreign countries who have a pet passport from their home country and authorizes multiple imports under the WBCA. Submit application form 3-200-46 and the processing fee to the Service. Copies of documentation will be required if you wish apply for a permit to travel with your pet in the future. If your bird is one of the following approved captive-bred species you do not need a WBCA permit to import your pet.

Dallas Startup Pets OnSite Is A Bring Your Pet To Work Company Even Bosses Love

As with everything these days, pet ownership looks a lot different in 2017 then it did even ten years ago. There’s no shortage of pet startups innovating the pet marketplace. Some pet parents have even taken to YouTube for their dogs to do their own versions of the popular “Unboxing” videos. There are also a variety of mobile app based startups that are helping pet owners find everything from nutritious home baked treats, to dog parks, pet playmates and pet sitters. Hotel chains, even high end ones like Lowes, cater to pets with special dog walking areas, “Quiet rooms” and goodies when they arrive. Technology like the PetCube allow pet owners to check on their dogs and cats remotely with their smartphones and even control a red laser to “Play” with their dogs and cats remotely. Another new trend for pet owners is bringing their dogs to work. The creator of the most popular mobil pet photo company in the world, Petclix, has launched a new company called Pets Onsite. Pets Onsite allows employees to bring their doggos to work and leave them at an attended, on-site doggy daycare set up in a contemporary trailer on company property. “Employers are starting to realize that having a Millennial bring a pet to work wind up getting a more focused employee, someone more comfortable at the office and a person willing to work longer hours,” said Bob Vetere, president, and CEO of the American Pet Products Association said in a statement. Of course as an employee perk a company could opt to pay instead. Also, Pets Onsite gives dog owners access to mobile grooming, training, toys and products for purchase and even a vet if necessary. “Most people consider their pets as their children. Pets Onsite provides a solution to allow employees to bring their furry children to work without the hassle, risk, and overhead to companies,” Brough said in a statement.
