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.

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.
