I am writing this from Hilton Head, SC … on our way to Savannah, GA … and then? Well, we’re enjoying a freedom we haven’t had before – the opportunity to see new things, meet new people, to stay as long as we want and then head off to the next place that sounds interesting. Our ultimate destination on this road trip is the BlogPaws conference in Columbus, OH on April 9-10.
Here is this weeks news recap.
PetNewsAndViews is running a great series on the cost of pet care. If you deal with pets and vets, read this information so you can make informed decisions.
When we walk our dogs, our hands and pockets are full. Leashes, bags, camera, treats, clickers. My click and treat handling is nothing but fumbling and jumbling. Now, clickerleash.com merges a clicker with an ergonomic, lightweight leash handle. Unfortunately, the $39.95 price isn’t so lightweight … still, check it out.
Love your pet? There’s a license plate for that – if you live in Kansas. A new specialty plate will be available that will allow friends of furry animals to declare “I’m pet friendly.”
Have you considered using medication to treat your dog’s behavioral problem? Is it “good medicine,” or are you just too lazy to train? DogLoversDigest ran a great interview this week with Dr. Lorie Huston to discuss this matter.
And just in case you missed it, we mentioned a new dog age calculator on the Pedigree.com website in last week’s Fetching News that was further reported on by WillMyDogHateMe. Forget the “multiply your dog’s age by 7” rule of thumb – this calculator factors in your dog’s breed.
Last but not least, GoPetFriendly was interviewed for an article that appeared in MotorHome. If you want to know more about us, it’s a great backgrounder.
