If you’re going on vacation and have decided it’s easier to fly to your destination, you don’t have to leave your precious pooch behind. In fact, most U.S. airlines will be glad to let you take your pet anywhere they fly as long as you follow their rules, which are designed for your pet’s safety.

Summertime is the favored time for vacations and many of us are sticking to car travel this year. It’s less expensive than flying and means you can easily take your dog with you! But if you’ve decided to take Rover along for the ride, make sure you know how to keep him comfortable and safe. Even adults can find long rides in the car uncomfortable, and pets can suffer even more. After all, they don’t know where you’re going or why!
Planning in advance and paying special attention to your dog’s comfort while traveling in the car will make your vacation much more pleasant for everyone.
We all love the idea of romping with our dogs on a warm, sunny day or taking our puppy on vacation with us. But during the hot days of summer, you need to keep in mind that there are increased health risks for dogs that range from mild to deadly. Being extra-vigilant and understanding these warning signs will help you keep your pet healthy and happy all summer long.
The joy of bringing home your new puppy can quickly lead to frustration if you have trouble teaching the little darling how to not use your home as a toilet. While most puppies are at least partially house trained when you get them, this training will often fly out the window due to the adjustment of entering a new household.
One of the best ways to housetrain your new puppy is by using the popular crate training method. Simply put, crate training gives your puppy his own personal space, then gets him used to the idea of not soiling his home environment. Over time, this behavior will be carried over into the household itself as you increase the area in which you allow him to wander free. Puppy crate training reinforces a dog’s natural instinct to keep the area where he eats and sleeps clean.
Feeding and caring for your new puppy is only part of the equation. A good pet owner will also provide routine veterinarian’s care to the newest member of the family to ensure his or her dog lives a long and healthy life. But finding the right vet for your family can be daunting. Once you’ve brought your new puppy home, start the search for a vet immediately – don’t wait until your puppy is sick or injured to find one.
Your kids may have been begging for a dog for months, or you may simply have decided it’s time to add a furry companion to your life. Whatever the reason, you’re looking for a new dog to call your own. While it may be tempting to simply browse through pictures of puppies and choose the one with the greatest “Aww” factor, you need to think long and hard about what you’re really looking for in a dog.
