Stock Up On New Dog Toys For Spring






March 21 was the official start of spring, and with warmer than average temperatures across most of the country, we bet you and your pet are just itching to go on that first walk of the season

The cold winter months can be just as hard on your pet as they are on you, leaving dogs without a place to run and play. This spring, cure your cabin fever, along with your dog's and get outside for a walk or a game of catch.

Now is the perfect time to stock up on dog toys for the warm spring and summer months, when you and your pet will be soaking up every minute of nice weather! Your dog will love it more than you could ever imagine if he/she came home to a brand new tennis ball, or other fun dog toy to play with in the newly uncovered grass!

Spring is also the perfect time to replace worn out dog collars, leashes and tie outs that you will need this spring and summer. Your dog will always enjoy going on a neighborhood walk to show off their new collar and leash. Using a dog tie out while you perform outdoor work will allow your dog to enjoy the fresh air without running away.

In addition to the fun outdoor spring and summer activities you and your pet will enjoy, spring and summer seasons also cause pets to shed more than usual. Make sure you have an appropriate dog brush to help keep your furniture hair free and dog grooming supplies, such as flea and tick shampoo to keep your pet free of pesky outdoor mites.

Happy Spring to you and your pet!

March Is Adopt a Guinea Pig Month






When considering adopting a pet, it's important to consider the weather before bringing home a new pet. Many people wait for Spring to adopt a pet because it offers the perfect weather for outdoor training, especially for dogs

While many people will adopt a new puppy during the spring, remember that spring is the perfect time to adopt any pet especially a Guinea Pig because March is Adopt a Guinea Pig Month!

The ASPCA declared March 2002 the first Adopt a Rescued Guinea Pig Month to raise awareness about guinea pigs in the shelter system and to celebrate guinea pigs as pets. Did you know that there are 3.3 million guinea pigs in American homes, according to the 2003-2004 National Pet Survey prepared by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, Inc? Yes, there are; because Guinea Pigs are such great pets. Furthermore, there are many Guinea Pigs in shelters that are in need of adoption. Most people do not know that these animals are available at shelters, so rescue one from a shelter if you plan to adopt a Guinea Pig!

Guinea Pigs are great pets for homes without backyards for dogs to run free. They are also great for families with pet allergies, because Guinea Pigs live in cages, which can be secluded from allergy stricken household members. Guinea Pigs are also quiet, affectionate and do not demand constant attention like other pets.

This spring when you are considering adopting a pet, seriously consider making an adorable Guinea Pig to your family.
