Keeping Your Pet Safe At Home: 5 Ways to Create A Dog-Friendly Garden

By freelance contributor Sally Perkins

The number of dog owners in the United States has been steadily increasing over the past few years. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals, it’s estimated that 78 million dogs are owned in the country. But apart from ensuring that our four-legged friends get enough exercise and nourishing food each and every day, it’s also imperative to keep them safe from harm.

According to a study, some common items found in our homes and gardens can be toxic for dogs.


Tips On Relieving Dog Stress: It’s More Than A Walk In the Park

by Sloan McKinney

Obviously we pride ourselves on turning a pleasant, simple, everyday walk (perhaps in the park) into a much more rewarding event for our favorite four-legged friends - as well as our community. Turning this experience into a positive outcome for everyone involved is much more than our mission statement and purpose, it also embraces a healthier lifestyle for all of us.

Whether we’re cuddling on the couch, walking with our best friend, relaxing at home or other forms of interaction, including playtime and other daily rituals, these are all great relievers of both stress and boredom. But what else can we do to relieve possible problems with stressful situations than can cause these cuddly critters harm with their health?frisbee dog

Make a Donation:
We can easily pay $5 for a fancy cup of coffee
these days. And if you would consider giving
only $5 a month (the price of that cup of coffee)
over the course of a year it would get one wounded or suffering animal to the vet.
That’s spectacular, for only $5 monthly.
