As you may know, I’m a big proponent of adding healthy fruits and veggies to my dogs’ diets. The nutrients and vitamins that these delicious foods offer are undeniable. But what about herbs? Did you know that certain herbs can also add nutritional value to your dogs meal? Although I’d love to get a vegetable garden growing in my yard, I haven’t done so yet. In the meantime, however, I am growing herbs! The best part is you don’t need a large amount of space to grow herbs – you don’t even need a yard! All you need is some indoor space with natural sunlight, and you’re ready to grow! Check out this list of dog friendly herbs you can grow in your home.
Typically Matt and I like to go to California a few times a year. We have a second home in La Verne, which is in East LA County, about 30 minutes from Disneyland and Huntington Beach. The drive is an easy six hours from our Arizona house. We love to pack up the dogs for relaxing trips, and that’s what we planned to do this past weekend. We made it to California safely, but plans took a quick, unexpected turn a day after we got into town.
Being smack dab in the middle of the Millennial generation, I’m surrounded by pet parents who want what’s best for their beloved animals. Luckily premium pet foods are mainstream and easily available to the general public. But what is also becoming mainstream is the treatment of all animals, not just our domesticated pals. As a society we are more aware of where our planet is headed, so sustainably sourced materials are more common. Since humans are focusing on better food choices, we are translating that focus to our pets. Tender & True pet food is an excellent premium pet food choice if you’re looking for a natural, nutritious and humanely farmed option.
Most people like routine, and many people thrive on one. I’m one of those people. I don’t follow a strict schedule since I work for myself from home, but I still have a daily routine that I enjoy following. Not only does having a routine help me through my days, but it makes them much less stressful. Did you know that it’s the same for our pets? Cats and dogs prefer a routine just as humans do. In fact, if your pets aren’t on a routine it can cause serious anxiety and stress. Not sure how to go about setting a schedule for your dog or cat? Here’s how to make a schedule for your pet, and why it’s important to do so.
As most of you probably know, making homemade dog treats for my pups is one of my favorite activities. I have several DIY dog treat recipes on my blog, but I’ve been inspired by PawCulture™ to create something new! If your dog is having a birthday or there’s a celebration, you can check out Paw Culture’s recipe for a DIY doggie cake. But in the meantime, I’ve created delicious cupcakes (which make my mouth water, if I do say so myself) that my dogs can’t get enough of! These DIY doggie cupcakes are perfect for any type of dog birthday party, get together, event…or just for fun!
