Many pet parents are not in a position to cover these unexpected costs—that's where pet insurance comes in. Pet insurance is for those unexpected mishaps, catastrophes and illnesses that you just can't plan for—like when the dog accidentally eats som

The current pandemic has brought everything to a screeching halt. We’re all trying to figure out how to keep busy while keeping staying put. Many of us are using technology to sta
As we experience this pandemic and its effects, we are spending more time at home. We are spending more time with our loved ones. I’m sure all the doggies out there are very happy to see us more. I’m sure the kitties are annoyed of us intruding on their turf. Birds, turtles and gerbils, I’m pretty sure, are indifferent.

As dog lovers, we want to spoil our furry members of the family all the time. Especially when it comes to sharing the things we love with them.

This "pack" consists of you, your family, other animals, and any other dog(s) in the household.
The Alpha dog, or pack leader, is the leader and protector of the pack. It is crucial that you accept this role. Your dog will be healthier and happier if it feels secure in it's pack, knowing that their leader does their job and every person that is safe.
