You've heard of Mommy and Me classes for moms and tots, but did you know that more Doggy and Me classes are popping up around the country? Your canine kiddos need exercise as much as you do. Bound into a class and bond over cardio, balance, core, strengthening, and yes, even pup-friendly yoga moves.
Give your furry family member first-class travel accommodations in planes or automobiles with a well-ventilated carrier, lined with a luxurious Sherpa pad. And never leave Rover in a vehicle on a hot or extremely cold day. If you wouldn't be comfortable (or safe) in a parked car, neither will your pooch.
Even the best pet food may not deliver all the nutrients your dog needs — but you know your dog doesn't want to choke down a pill or eat unpalatable powders. A tasty alternative is Weider Pet Health's Advanced Canine Wellness Solutions, powdered supplements that deliciously mix right into Fluff's favorite food. Different varieties are available for daily wellness, skin and coat health, allergies, digestive wellness, hip and joint mobility, and aging.
Unless your pooch is a water dog who prefers a pond to the grass, you need to make bathtime fun for Fifi. Provide treats before and after the wash to give her good associations. While's she's in the tub, talk to her gently and use the soaping process as a luxurious massage. Try an organic herbal shampoo like Bubble + Squeak. Afterwards, be sure your family compliments Fifi on her fluffy-clean beauty.
