10 Ways To Be An Eco-Friendly Dog Owner

10 Ways To Be An Eco-Friendly Dog Owner

*Ad

As a pet owner, I am always conscious of what we purchase, what waste we produce (or they produce) and how even our beloved animals also come with a carbon footprint – yes, that’s right even our pets contribute towards global warming. In the UK alone we are reported to own around 12 million pets – that’s 44% of us who own a pet of some variety, so what exactly does this look like in terms of emissions?

Why A New Puppy Was The Right Choice For Our Family

Back in July, we had to say goodbye to my beautiful border terrier, Molly. She had been a huge part of my life for 18 years and losing her left a such a hole both in my heart and also in our home. It just wasn’t the same not being greeted when we walked in the door. I was missing those lovely dog walks. I would listen out for her claws tapping on our bedroom floor each night, expecting her to suddenly be there and each time that realisation dawned on me that she wasn’t there and that she wouldn’t ever be again.

Pet Cats Need Their Inner Hunter Massaged

*This is a collaborative post

For many people, they are either one of two things, dog lovers or cat lovers. Sometimes you get both but for the most part, your character and personality will determine the kind of pet you get. Those that love cats love how nimble they are, small and furry they are and don’t take up a lot of room. Dogs can seem a little frightening to some people especially since many medium-sized dogs are still over 100 lbs and this makes them unsuitable for some. Cats, on the other hand, are small and they are easy-going. Dogs prefer to be more active and get walking or running every single day at least twice. While cats are laid back and they prefer to do their prowling at night and solo. That’s something that cat owners will pick up on, their cat is still prowling despite being domesticated. You can’t stop their inner hunter from coming out. So could you possibly strengthen your bond with your pet cat if you encouraged that side of their personality?

Animals Are Purrrfect For Our Wellbeing

*Collaborative Post

Did you know that most households have a pet living in them? Even though owning your very own dog, cat or hamster can be a lot of work and responsibility for the entire family, it is very much worth it. They are a great addition to any family, as they make the perfect play companions for children. Plus, you will find that you get a lot out of their loyalty and companionship as well. And they can even help to teach children some necessary life lessons. For instance, some parents buy their young children small pets, such as hamsters or guinea pigs, so that they can experience death once the animal passes. Even though that might not be the happiest thought, it can help set children up for some of the sad experiences that they will meet later in their adult life.
