Pups Home Care has reliable pet sitters!

Deanna was AMAZING!! I was out of the country for a week, and Deanna was watching my Labs. My female Lab has a chronic medical condition and (through no fault of Deanna) injured herself. Deanna promptly notified me and we worked out a treatment plan for my dog’s chronic condition. Deanna executed the plan and let me know how my dog was responding to the treatment. Deanna took great care of my dogs and spent extra time with my sick dog. I could not be more pleased with how everything went with Deanna.

Dogs get cold too!

Bring your dogs inside during cold weather. They may seem to love to play in the snow but their feet become cold very quickly. This makes it hard for them to continue, to walk, to get to the house. Keep a eye on them during cold temperatures.

Dog: Expectations vs. Reality

Life for companion animals has changed immensely, primarily over the past 20 years.

Advances in medicine and understanding animal behavior, and better approaches and understanding of nutrition have come a long way. Animals are living healthier lives physically – but what about psychologically? Are we doing all that we can for our pets to assure their mental fitness? Are the expectations that are being placed on some dogs especially, just too high?

Our society favors high achievement, fast movers and goal setters – thriving on the 30-minute meal, the list-making-quick-fix-structured-take-a-pill-it-will-solve-the-problem-do-it-my-way mentality. Dogs just don’t live that way. Canines are as vastly different from each other in personality and natural ability as humans are. Despite what is thought by some, there is nothing true about the phrase, “all dogs are the same.”
