Having some pets at home would clearly need a lot of prerequisites. You would need to give so much of your attention, time, and effort as you give them a proper tender, love, and care. Pets are not just about having or owning an animal at home. Having a pet means having a family member who will be there to listen to you, be with you, and do the things that not even a human can do.

As a pet owner you should maintain your home clean and free from clutter. You can do this despite the mess that your pets can do at home by making sure that you have a good and well-functioning plumbing services that would give you no problem in taking your pets to bathe. It would also be of great importance to have a clean shelter or bed for your dogs since just like people, they would be needing a nice and healthy hygienic lifestyle.

Dogs are undeniably a man’s best friend. Actually no, dogs are a man’s family. Taking care of a dog can give you a very comfortable and amazing feeling. How good does it feels like whenever you take care of someone or something? Do you also have the tendency to treat your dog like a human being?

Well the things that you might be feeling right now are just perfectly normal. However, if you feel like you still need some time in order to know how to take care of your dog, then that is perfectly fine as well. We are here to give you some ideas in order to give a hand in that problem.

Here are some basic tips that you would probably need:

1. Give them a shower every 2-3 days


It is necessary for your pets to take a bath just like people as well. They would surely need a proper hygiene in order to be healthy. However, you need to be aware of the fact that they should only be taking a bath every after two to three (2-3) days only. The reason behind this fact is that giving them a break from taking a shower actually implies that they will have natural oil in their hair. It will give a stunning, soft, and shiny look for your pet’s hair. So you do not have to shower them every single day unless they have been really playing with the mud and got themselves look really unpleasant and full of dirt.

  • Blogging about blogging shouldn’t be hard, yet here we are… (plus, free stickers!) June 1, 2017
    I’m fully prepared for you to tsktsktsk while shaking your head after I say this (famous last words, anyone?), but here goes: I think I’ve finally got a handle on… well, stuff. I mean, not entirely. But mostly. Or, partly anyway. {{Note: I wrote the draft of this post on my flight TO BlogPaws. Three weeks […]
  • Introducing the newest member of our herd May 10, 2017
    Several people told us the same thing: Emmett was waiting for Violet. “He wanted to make sure you were OK.” Maybe. I don’t know. It’s a lovely sentiment, regardless. I don’t yet have the words to write about Emmett’s life–or his death, for that matter. He himself was larger than life. Over the last year or […]
  • Our light has dimmed April 25, 2017
    It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share with you: Emmett passed away over the weekend. He left peacefully and at home. (My favorite picture of Emmett ever, 2008.) His loss has left a hole in our hearts and in our home. We’re going to take some time to grieve, then […]
  • It’s the Year of the Cat… and #HealthyMeetsHappy April 23, 2017
    Over the years, people have told us that we treat Newt like a dog. Even a vet said that to us once… to our surprise. What does that mean? Well, the first thing is that we had her microchipped! That’s what elicited that vet’s comment. Apparently it’s rare for a cat to be chipped. (But… […]
  • Spring Cleaning When You Have a House Full of Animals (Bonus: free printables!) April 21, 2017
    And, yes, those animals include husbands, children, and dust bunnies… When was the last time you said to yourself, “Wow, I have SO much time on my hands!! What should I do with myself?” I’d wager a fortune in kibble that the answer is: never. Never has any one of us ever said that. I don’t […]
  • Happy Planner Flip Through | Scrapbook Sunday and #BestLifePets April 2, 2017
    Hello, everyone! Welcome to my first ever Happy Planner flip through! So, last weekend I found myself with a small pocket of time and decided to film a flip-through of my Happy Planner project. I’ve never done anything like this before, though I’ve watched TONS of other people’s flip-throughs. Despite all the craziness of the […]
  • The caterpillar and the butterfly but mostly the goo March 29, 2017
    I read some quote recently about the caterpillar turning into the butterfly. One life ending, the other beginning. It was supposed to be inspirational, but the image stuck with me. Because it’s not really a beginning or an ending. It’s just a continuation of the same. It only looks different. A caterpillar basically digests itself […]
  • Where do you find the time to train your dog? March 12, 2017
    Right now: It’s 7:52 on a Saturday night. I’m in my cozies snuggled under the covers with Cooper. Laptop balanced on my knees. Beer on the side table. And I am wiped. But, this is the first chance I’ve had all week to write about time management for dog training–the theme of this past week’s blog […]
  • Everything you ever wanted to know about senior dogs and mobility February 22, 2017
    OK. Maybe not everything, but I’m going to try my best. First, my usual disclaimers: I’m not a vet. I’m not a vet tech. I’m not in any capacity involved in any sort of medical field. I’m a writer and avid researcher who’s crazy obsessed with providing my dogs the best life possible. I’m simply sharing […]
  • What to do if your dogs fight (other than cry) February 15, 2017
    Emmett and Cooper are thick as thieves. They just prefer to be together. In fact, we make an effort to separate them on occasion because, well, Emmett’s not going to be around forever, and Cooper needs to learn to be alone. When we walk one, the other sits at the door and waits. When one wants […]
