It’s hard to believe that the biggest travel day of the year is upon us and for a lot of us, that means travel for our pets, as well. Let’s face it, dogs have a lot of stuff. It is like traveling with a two-year old. Our friends at Solvit™ Products have come up with a remarkable product to make our life a little easier. The Solvit Homeaway™ Travel Kit organizes all your pet’s essentials in one efficient and attractive package. Whether your pet is traveling with you, or they’re staying with a sitter while you’re out-of-town, the HomeAway™ kit holds everything they need for an extended trip or just a fun-filled day excursion.
When we step into a home, one of the first things we often notice is the smell. Does it smell new or clean? Does it pass the smell test?
We all love our pets like family but when it comes time to sell our home, there are some important things pet owners need to consider to prevent our pet(s) from derailing the sale of our home. If you have considered putting your home on the market, but are not sure how to handle pet odors that have accumulated after years of caring for your four-legged friends, we may be able to help. We can all relate. We love our pets and they take priority, but someone else may not and that can impact our bottom line when selling our home.
We hear the words “green” “organic” and “natural” a lot these days but what does it all really mean? Do we need to be a chemist when it comes to making an informed decision for choosing pesticide-free products for our pets and home? It can be a bit overwhelming at times.
We recently stumbled upon, Wondercide™, a company that produces a line of products dedicated to formulating safe alternatives. They offer a full line of products for Natural Flea & Tick Control (dogs, cats and home), Natural Home & Lawn Pest Control and Natural Pet Care. All products are Made in the USA.
It’s no secret that we are big fans of all Zuke’s products. Zuke’s treats are healthy, natural, nutritious and made with wholesome, whole-food ingredients, and Baylie loves them! From the moment Zuke’s created the first ever “energy bar” for dogs in 1995, they have devoted their time, energy and love into learning what pets need and want. For Zuke’s, sustainability and reducing their carbon footprint, while promoting a healthy diet and lifestyle for your pet, are second nature.
Generally, we hoomans get a little lethargic when cold weather sets in and assume it rings true with our dogs, as well. While cabin fever and the Winter blues may be experienced by some small-breed dogs, it can be just the opposite for many long-haired, large-breed dogs that get an adrenaline rush from cooler temps. Baylie welcomes the onset of cool weather with open arms.
As a former IT Functional Systems Analyst, I’m a self-proclaimed techie. One product I’ve been wanting to purchase is a pet monitor. There are so many monitors on the market, but I have not had the time to do my due diligence as far as which monitor will suit my needs as well as the price points. Thankfully, I was saved the arduous task of comparing specs by our friends at PetsWeekly. I’m certain a squeal could be heard when told I was the lucky winner of their Motorola Scout 66 Wi-Fi Pet Monitor giveaway.
If you are not familiar with PetsWeekly, it’s a fantastic resource for pet parents. You’ll learn all about pets and pet health, read fun pet stories and pet quotes, stay abreast of the newest pet products, and save money with free contests & coupons.
Living in a bipetual home, one of my worst fears is that weird things happen when Smoki and Baylie are home alone. On occasion when I arrive home, Baylie greets me anxious and panting. With a pet monitor, I will be able see and hear, in real-time, if she exhibits any signs of separation anxiety. Foremost, I want to make certain Smoki and Baylie are respectful of each other when I’m away.
Two items I vowed never to have in our bipetual home; 1) doggie potty pads, and 2) a pet gate. Potty pads were never necessary since Baylie was so easy to potty train, but I succumbed to the use of a pet gate. Why now, you ask, even though Baylie is past her rambunctious puppy stage? The foremost reason we decided to consider using a pet gate was not so much to corral Baylie, but rather to provide Smoki some degree of privacy without shutting her off from the other rooms of the house.
