Before taking home a new addition to the family, pet parents try to make sure the house is fully and completely ready for the arrival of a new dog or cat.

Doggy Diarrhea

Dealing with Doggy Diarrhea Going for runs with your canine is great! Going for a run to the doggy park, a run on the trail, a run to the pet store. Is there any type of run you and your pet wouldn’t enjoy? Maybe just one - doggy runs. Doggy runs are another term for diarrhea in pets. This is caused by unabsorbed nutrients drawing water into the intestines, causing canines to pass soft, watery stools.  How long your dog has diarrhea ultimately depends on the reason why they developed it in the first place, leaving them to experience it...

Pet Beds

Pet Beds: More Than Just A Box One of the biggest joys of having a pet is always having a reliable cuddle buddy. Someone to snuggle up to in bed and keep you company while you both start to doze off. While that’s certainly an advantage of having a pet, there’s no harm in purchasing your companion a bed of their own! In fact, there are plenty of reasons why you should - because they need more than just a box! Dogs and cats sleep 12 - 14 hours a day, so it’s only natural that they have a luxurious,...

Crates vs. Carriers

Crates vs. Carriers Crates and carriers are two of the smartest, most useful purchases you could possibly make during your time as a pet parent. Now this might come as a surprise to some people. Two different purchases? Crates and carriers are often used synonymously or interchangeably in the pet world. This is understandable since both of them fall under the category of “kennel,” which is any place that animals are kept. Both falling under the same general term, they are naturally going to be similar in a lot of aspects, but there are some key characteristics between the two...

Housebreaking Essentials

Everyone loves a new puppy. A new member of the family to welcome in and spoil endlessly with cuddles, treats, toys, and more! One that will give you constant attention, loyalty, and company. What’s not to love?

For some, it’s the process of housebreaking. Along with your pup comes all of their basic needs, like using the bathroom. They can’t help it, of course. Your new dog isn’t quite sure where its designated spot for elimination is yet. But you can’t seem to help but prepare yourself to lose a couple rugs or shoes in the process! That’s why housebreaking at an early age is essential. You have to train your companion where exactly they are allowed to relieve themselves. This not only saves you a few pieces of furniture and extra time from cleaning up, but it helps your furry friend to become more obedient and respectful of the home.
