Tips for Choosing A Dog Daycare Facility

Tips for Choosing A Dog Daycare Facility Honestly, I’ve not used a dog daycare before. The closest I came to it was when my dog was a puppy and I took her to a small dog/puppy playtime at a dog daycare facility. The half hour of what I was lead to believe to be a friendly and safe environment for my puppy to burn off energy and socialize did not turn out how I imagined. Within 5 minutes of being there I walked out never to return...

How Does an Ill Pet Impact The Pet Parent?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here on my blog. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to write. I’ve sat down at my computer several times, started typing, deleted what I’ve typed, edited what I’ve written, not sure what to say, but more so, how to say it. At the time I didn’t know how this “story” was going to end. So how could I begin to write if I didn’t have an ending? Pets Have Positive Physical and Emotional Effects on...

And that’s not taking into consideration any illnesses or accidents your puppy may have along the way. But the expenses don’t stop here. There’s the additional cost...
