Pet owners receive unconditional love from their furry friends, and Valentine’s Day is a great time to show appreciation while keeping it safe. Here are some tips (and treats) to offering your pet the best Valentine’s Day yet:
Chocolate, Cellophane, Decorations – Many of us will be spoiled with chocolates on Valentine’s Day, but chocolate is a fatal hazard to dog’s and should be stored in a safe place. If you indulge in sweets that are wrapped in plastic cellophane, be sure to dispose of the wrapper immediately to avoid risk of your pooch mistaking it for a tasty treat. Likewise, any balloons, ribbons, or other various decorations should not be accessible to your furry friend.
Flowers – Place floral arrangements out of your puppy’s reach; different plants and flowers can make your pooch sick if ingested, or even be fatal, so admire your flowers from afar.
Candles and Cocktails – Candles are a great mood setter for a relaxing night, but don’t forget to blow out any candles before leaving the room. Leaving lit candles unattended can burn your buddy or create a fire. Beverages containing alcohol should be enjoyed safely and then cleaned up; alcohol consumed by pets can lead to comas and respiratory failure.

Dog harnesses are a practical alternative to the classic dog collar and dog leash. The design of a dog harness helps eliminate pressure from your canine’s neck, aiding in the prevention of potential trachea and neck injury. There are many different styles of dog harnesses available, making it easy to find the perfect look and fit for your furry friend. Ease your pooch into a new harness by having them sport it around the house until they are use to its feel and offer praise in exchange for cooperation. Using a dog harness is also a great training method when teaching your pooch not to pull during walks since a harness distributes an even amount of pressure around your dog’s body. A dog harness also provides a sense of more control for owners without any pain for your pup. An accidental pull of the leash could choke or hurt your canine but since a dog harness takes concentration off of the neck, accidents of such can be easily avoided. Dog harnesses are also fashionably fun; there are dog coat harnesses, dog dress harnesses, and even dog costume harnesses for chic canines. Providing a dog harness for your pooch will allow for the utmost safety, comfort, and style during your walks together.
Harnesses don’t have to be as bland anymore. With the rising popularity of harness outfits, it seems more dogs are taking their walks in comfortable style. Harness outfits are made in a wide variety of styles, including dresses, tops, vests, and jackets. Instead of buying a jacket and then a harness, you can just strap on the dog harness jacket and save yourself some time. Even Harley lovers get in on the action with a biker harness dog outfit. Pretty puppies can even be treated with a flower dog harness dress. Showing off personality has never been so easy. Browse the options and find that perfect look for your pooch.
