Pet Gear created the innovative No-Zip technology to take their pet strollers to the next level. This easy latching system allows you to get your pet in and out of the stroller with ease. The system also created a place for your pet to rest his paws. Many pets like to ride propped up so they have the best view of the outdoors. The panoramic view provided by the No-Zip strollers adds to the enjoyment of the ride for your pet!
Pet Gear also paid attention to the comfort of the owner when they designed this easy-to-use stroller. The handle height is 40 inches from the ground. This is important especially if you are tall because you don’t want to kick the stroller when walkiing. There is a parent tray for keys and drinks. The large storage basket underneath will accommodate pet toys or groceries. The fabric used on the cabin is 600 Denier nylon, which is easily spot-cleaned. The No-Zip also folds with one hand and will stow away in any car.
Even though you may want to take your dog everywhere you go, there are times when it’s best if he or she stays at home. Depending on the personality of your dog, this may be a very stressful period of time. There is also the guilt factor for you, the owner, to consider! Keeping your dog busy so he doesn’t decide to chew on your coffee table or pee on your couch can certainly be challenging!
If you have a doggie door or a dog run, then the option exists for him to burn off some nervous energy and also to get a change of scenery. Often for puppies, the best option is to crate him when you’re not home. Dogs feel safe in their crate and they will often just sleep while you are away.
Leaving the television or radio on is a good idea. This at least gives the illusion that your dog has some company in the house. Leaving your dog with a piece of clothing you have recently worn often will give comfort to a dog who is missing his owner.
Giving your dog a toy to keep him busy is a good idea. Bully sticks are long-lasting chew sticks that are made of dried bull penises. They come in odor-free, which certainly is better for owners!
A treat-dispensing toy is also a good plan for your lonely dog. Tried and true Kong toys are made of hard rubber and you can insert treats or peanut butter to keep your dog busy. The Dog Pyramid is also a great treat toy that makes your dog work to get small treats out of the hole.
KittyWalk strollers are truly well-designed and superbly constructed pet strollers. KittyWalk strollers have a fabulous 360 degree view through a soft mesh fabric. Each pet stroller has a detachable carrier that allows you to take your cat into the car and into the vet or other desired location.
Four of the KittyWalk strollers have a regular version and an SUV option that is 30% larger. One difference between the strollers is the fabric used on the privacy compartment. Many cats who ride in strollers enjoy the option to take a break from the action to duck out of sight.
All the KittyWalk strollers have independently turning front wheels. The wheels on the SUV strollers are larger and better able to navigate over uneven terrain.
All of the strollers have a special latch system on the door openings. This company does not use zippers, but instead a metal and leather clasp.
It’s no secret that more than 1 in 4 people suffer from obesity. Obesity is defined as having an abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health. If you are a woman, you’re obese with greater than 39% body fat, and with greater than 25% if you are a man.
Similarly, about 55% of our pets are overweight or obese. We feed our pets too much food and too many fatty treats, and they don’t get enough exercise. Many people perceive their pets as being at a healthy weight, when in fact they are overweight. As a nation, we and our pets are much too sedentary. Some exercise is necessary to help maintain a normal weight. It is possible, however, to exercise your pet too much.
Dogs need a good, purposeful, walk everyday. They like to stop, sniff around and eliminate. Dogs are built for short, intense bursts of speed with periodic stops. People, on the other hand, are built for long, steady periods of jogging or running. Many people like to run with their dog, but it’s important to be cognizant of how well your dog is suited to this activity. For example, if it is too hot outside, your dog has the potential to get blisters on his paw pads. Many dogs get overheated on runs that are too long. Young dogs shouldn’t go on long runs, as their bones are not fully developed. Likewise, older dogs are at risk for hip and joint problems if they exert themselves too much.
Pay attention to your dog’s comfort level when exercising him. Whether you have a pet that enjoys a longer run, or one that prefers low intensity activity, working toward a healthy weight should be the goal.
