There is more to a dogs life than providing them with food, shelter, and a bathroom walk. If you are reading this section then pet yourself on your back (yes pun intended!) as you are already an active doggy parent looking to make their lives even better! Here are some questions and answers we hope will help.
Try to keep your animal in a very low toxicity environment (non-toxic is always preferred) especially when taking them outside. Think about the signs that you see on a lawn after pesticides and fertilizers have been applied. We wear shoes, socks, and other layers that act as a barrier while dogs don’t. Dogs love to play outside, sometimes chew on on grass, and other times just digging in the soil is fun. This is one of the first spots where they are exposed to potentially harmful chemicals. We recommend you minimize using these spray chemicals and if you have to use them, try using ones that are organic and consult your maintenance people about them. Spend time reviewing what chemicals you will be using outside and inside of your home. Read the labels and always try to go as organic as you possibly can. There is also tick and flea powders, household cleaners, tobacco and much more that can be a carcinogen for your animal.
