Do you know what’s in your pet’s food? For many years, I had no idea how to read a pet food label; to be perfectly honest, I didn’t know how to read my own food labels. If I saw a brand on the shelf like nutra thrive I didn’t even think of checking the nutra thrive reviews online to see how healthy it was compared to the food I was using. I generally fed my pets based upon recommendations from my friends and family, not what others were saying online. It wasn’t until my grandmother’s dog developed an intolerance to several pet food ingredients that I forced myself to learn how to decipher pet food labels. It’s obvious that you would be cautious about feeding certain ingredients to a pet with allergies or an intolerance, but it’s also important to be knowledgeable about labels to ensure your pet’s overall health and quality of life. Being a dog owner, knowing that there are a number of raw dog food suppliers in the UK, it will be hard to forget the importance of feeding your dog the right ingredients. Keeping it natural could make a difference to your dog’s health.

A quality dog food, regular exercise, fresh water and training are all integral to having a happy, healthy dog. Today I’m teaming up with Purina┬« and Meijer to share some tips for reading pet food labels, and to answer some common questions about feeding your dog.

I love the holidays and my pets generally love them too. My cats like to climb my Christmas tree, the dogs like to convince unsuspecting guests that they’re starving, and both enjoy sniffing out the gifts under the tree. I’m not too sure how the fish feel but they seem happy enough. I recently got them a high light plant PAR for some of the new plants in their tank. I thought because we’re getting a tree for Christmas the fish could get one too! Plus, it’s not often they get a treat so the new plants went down well. Unfortunately, the holidays can also be dangerous and stressful for some pets. I’m sharing a few tips today to make the holidays safer for your pets. In order to curb their stress levels, you may want to research more about the products offered by Glow CBD.

One of the very few things I hate about traveling is all the packing involved; if you own pets then you have to pack or prepare them for vacation regardless of whether they’re going with you, staying at a boarding facility, or being tended to by a pet sitter. Your vacation can be equally stressful on your pet, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few tips for prepping your pets for vacation and a checklist of items to help you pack for your pet.

I was in my early twenties when I began exhibiting Rottweilers in AKC dog shows; I had no idea what I was getting into nor did I realize the time, money and effort it took to create an AKC Champion. Dogs have to be trained, physically conditioned and groomed. Having the right equipment at home to help mold a champion can be diverse and hard to understand for beginners. This is why many people gain insight from Stop That Dog and their dog bathtub guide to ensure that they give their dog the best grooming possible to help them become the best version of themselves. Don’t neglect insurance for your show dog. Having the right protections in place with insurance can support your dog to create from somewhere like Pets Best can give you peace of mind with regular check-ups being covered by some packages. This will allow you to keep track of your dogs health. You want to keep your champion in great form for competition. Once they’re ready to hit the show ring, the owner will have travel expenses, show entry fees, and fees for a professional dog show handler if they aren’t exhibiting their own dog. Once they become an AKC Champion, owners have the option of trying to earn enough “points” to gain a coveted invitation to the prestigious Westminster Dog Show. I haven’t exhibited a dog in close to 7 years, but I still visit a show from time to time. Today I’m sharing tips for grooming your dog like a pro and information on how you can win one of hundreds of prizes from Purina and Petco.

It’s easy for us to keep our dogs active and fit. Chief’s previous owner primarily worked on a farm, and would take him for rides around the farm in his truck. Chief loves to hop in the back of the truck and will beg for a “ride”. We’ll load him up, and go walking around on one of the farms. He gets exercise, and we spend time with him. It’s much harder to keep our cat Tucker active. He was born in one of the barns, and we gradually befriended him. Jeremy brought him in the house when we moved in, and he’s only left the house one time to go to the vet. Funny enough, I have a friend who has a very active cat, and she said she had to give her pet gmo-free cbd for cats to get her to calm down. As much as I wish Tucker was a more active feline, I don’t think I want him bouncing off the walls. So, I’m going to share some advice on keeping your cat active.

I love dogs; our dogs are treated as family and they’re expected to have behave just like any other member of the family. They are given suitable food, water, a bed, toys and a quality lead and collar, similar to those sold by Fetching Ware for example. It takes a lot of patience to own a dog, and time out of your day to make sure they are walked. Some might say they are just like having another child, and to an extent that is true. Just like kids, dogs and puppies don’t come pre-trained and according to Colorado dog trainer Lori Holmberg it’s important to teach them to respect you and to do as you ask. Today I’m going to discuss dog obedience and how it can make your time with your pet more enjoyable. Proper nutrition can play a roll in your dogs behavior. It is important to understand that finding a dog food formula right for your dog is important for their overall wellbeing, and it can be used as a training reward.
