Dogs tend to have more than one breed in their blood, which begs the question of every puppy parent, “what breed is my dog?” There are several products on the market that allow you to send in a test to determine your dog’s breed. A simple swab on the inside of their cheeks will give scientists the sample they need to accurately determine the breed, much like a human DNA test to find ancestry information, these tests are virtually the same process.
If you have a dog, chances are you’ve run out of dog food before. Usually that just means an extra trip to the pet store or supermarket. But those options aren’t always available to everybody all of the time. You might be camping, in bed with the flu or waiting to get paid.
Many people believe that these types of treats are just like any other, or they just freshen a dog’s breath, but dental dog treats are important to a pup’s oral health and overall diet for many reasons, including fresh breath. The various brands of treats are made to do the same things, but the ingredients vary widely from brand to brand, so the ultimate challenge for a pet parent is to identify key ingredients that are both good, and bad for Rover.
Dogs are obviously not humans. We can eat a very large variety of fruits, veggies, meats, dairy, and anything else that manufacturers process. We are especially resilient compared to most other species on the planet. Dogs have a specific diet that they need to have in order to be completely healthy.
Let’s face it, pets are messy. From stray kibbles to fluffy fur, cleaning up after our pets can be a real chore. Make life easier with the right tool for the job – in this case, the right vacuum for pet hair.
We love our dogs, but if there is one thing we can all agree on, its that we don’t love their shedding! Deshedders come in various sizes, colors, and styles. One can’t necessarily cease their pet from shedding altogether, but the hair that is shedded on a daily basis can be reduced when a dog is brushed at regular intervals using high-quality tools. Some tools are comb-like, while others resemble a brush. It’s best to buy the appropriate size for the dog. Too large of a deshedder may irritate and hurt the skin of a smaller dog, due to more massive metal tines. If a dog has sensitive skin, there are other options, such as rubber de-shedders or smaller tines that may be helpful.
