How to Form a Dog Walking Group - Some dogs benefit tremendously from the structured socialization that can come from group dog walks. However, not all dogs are appropriate for group activities. If you think your dog would thrive in a dog-walking club, here are a few simple steps to arrange one in your area. Pick a Time and Location Start by scouting out your town, nearby parks, and hiking trails. Pick a spot that has plenty of space for dogs to spread out or step to the side to let other walkers or hikers pass. Also, obviously, make sure it’s a dog-friendly trail or park. Then, find the right day of the week and time of day; for example, if you’re picking a city walking trail, the day the farmers’ market sets up stalls along the walk isn’t your best bet. Hint: For ease of scheduling if you intend this to be an ongoing event, pick a recurring day and time, like the first Sunday of the month at noon, to avoid scheduling hassles. Create Ground Rules Many dog walking clubs have a series of rules that all members

Honest Kitchen Dog Food Gets A Big Thumbs Up for Quality and Safety - When it comes to optimum health for your dog, look for whole food ingredients. Don’t buy a particular brand or formula just because it says “all natural” or “premium.” Those words are more marketing buzzwords than an actual representation of the overall quality and safety of a particular dog food. That’s the conclusion of a major dog food review by a team of researchers for Review.com, an independent research company based in Seattle. After researching the nutritional profiles and ingredients of 2,223 dog food formulas, Review.com whittled the list of recommended food formulas to 134 (manufactured by 29 brands). Honest Kitchen formulas are listed as trustworthy, quality, safe, best dog foods The team, comprised of 7 researchers and 20 study contributors, surveyed 300 dog owners, analyzed 72 articles and studies, and studied specific ratios/ingredients provided by each company and compared them with third party sources to ensure the data lined up. The Association of Americ

What You Need to Know About Creative Pet Grooming - Dog grooming is big business. The American Pet Productions Association estimates that spending for pet services, which lumps together grooming and boarding, will exceed $5 billion in 2015. That breaks down to each dog owner spending about $83 per year on grooming services for his or her dog. One growing sub-segment of the grooming market is “creative grooming.” Creative grooming is a decorative style that incorporates everything from bling to fur dye to nail polish. Manufacturers are coming out with products that meet the increasing demand of this trend, and nearly every pet retailer has creative grooming products stocked on their shelves. There are even different associations for creative groomers, like the Creative Groomers Association and the National Association of Professional Creative Groomers. Style If you want your dog to be clipped into the shape of a character from Super Mario Brothers, a creative groomer can do it. If you want your dog to be dyed into a rainbow, a creat

The Top Trends in Pet Stuff from SuperZoo - Last week, more than 15,000 pet professionals convened in Las Vegas for the annual SuperZoo trade event. Nearly 1,000 manufacturers showcased new products and hot trends for pets. The number one trend on everyone’s lips: the humanization of pets. That doesn’t mean treating pets like humans, though. Rather, it means that pet parents expect products made with the same standards as the products we purchase for ourselves. Human Grade The demand for human-grade products spanned many categories, but it was on full display at The Honest Kitchen’s booth. Grocery store customers are becoming savvy about the ingredients in the food they purchase for their families. The pet members of the family are no different; pet parents seek the same quality ingredients for their pets that they seek for themselves. Sun Protection Dogs’ noses experience the harsh effects of the sun. Likewise, dogs with short coats or white fur can get sunburns, and skin cancer is on the rise among dogs. Just as we’

DIY: 10 Steps For Building Your Own Cardboard Cat Castle - Do you have a cat? Do you also have a bunch of cardboard boxes lying around after a big move? There’s a way to find a use for them while also providing a new playhouse or home for your feline friend. Build her a cardboard cat castle! Materials Needed: Cardboard Boxes (at least 3) Box cutter (Scissors might work, too) Pen Paint (optional) Glue The great thing about creating a cardboard cat castle is how cheap and easy it is. You don’t even have to be all that creative, and you can make it as big or as small as you please depending on the amount of boxes you have. Step 1 Decide on the size. We’re going to go with a simple two-story castle here, but you can add on more as you go. Step 2 Lay your cardboard boxes flat on the ground next to each other. They shouldn’t be in the shape of boxes just yet. Step 3 Use a pen or marker to draw the windows and doors of your castle. These can be in any shape you’d like, but we prefer the arched shape of most medieval castles and doors for t

DIY Paw Print Projects - Capture your pet s unique paw print to create a meaningful keepsake with one of these three super simple DIY projects. Pet-Safe Ink Print Create a work of art with your pet’s paw prints using a non-toxic dye. Mix one package of Kool-Aid with only just enough water to make a Kool-Aid paste. If it gets too watery, you won’t be able to adhere it evenly to your dog’s paw. Spread the paste across a solid surface, and dip your dog’s pad into the dye. Alternatively, if you have a patient dog, use a paint brush to coat his paw evenly with the dye mixture. Once his paw is coated, press it onto a canvas or sheet of paper—just be sure to avoid any glossy-textured papers or else the Kool-Aid paste will smear. Use this technique to create an abstract print with multiple overlapping paws, or do a single paw print and embellish with your pet’s picture or name. Allow it to dry completely before framing or hanging. Use a pet-safe grooming wipe to remove the Kool-Aid, though if your dog doe
