I’ve been using a dog stroller since 2013. Wynston and I started attending events regularly that year, and I found the need for a stroller. I figured it would keep Wynston from getting stepped on by humans and bigger dogs, and I’d have a place to put all of my stuff wherever we were at. In September 2013 I bought a BestPet stroller from Amazon for $50. It was the best dog mom investment ever. I used that stroller for four years until I massively upgraded in December 2017. Now after working in the pet industry for five years and becoming well versed in a variety of pet products, I can recommend a plethora of pet strollers. In this list you’ll find strollers for any sort of pet in a wide price range. Next in my dog mom recommendations series – the best dog strollers for any size dog and budget.

The hot summer temperatures are enough to give humans and animals heat stroke if the proper precautions aren’t taken.
June is National Pet Preparedness Month, and I had the opportunity to talk about this crucial topic with Dr. Kurt Venator from Purina. This post will cover what you need to know to be prepared for disaster and emergencies no matter where you live.
It was a hot September day. I had just picked up my new rescue dog, Khloee, from the boarding facility she was abandoned at. (You can read more of that story here). I was so incredibly excited about this new ball of fluff in my life, that I just had to go show my mom! After all, Wynston had been my only dog for 2.5 years. My little Khloee was a mere 7lbs when I brought her to my mom’s for the first time at three months old. Boy was Khloee rambuncious. She was full of energy and personality. But then there was that moment. We walked into the backyard where my newly rescued fluff ball quickly discovered the pool.
