It’s coming up on summer now and we’re all getting ready for our trips
to the cabin, long rides on the road, and sunny days in the open. And, of
course, your dog is just as excited about all of it as you are. But, traveling
with your dog isn’t always easy, tidy, or organized and sometimes having a few
extra accessories can make all the difference between a relaxing trip and a
stressful one. With that in mind, let’s go over some of your options for dog
accessories on the road.
Seat covers – If your dog tends to shed a lot, or get dirty, then you’re
more than likely going to want to buy a seat cover for your backseat. You can
get them custom made, but more than likely you’ll find one that’s the right
size and style for you and your dog. For particularly large dogs that like to
move around the backseat a lot, consider getting a dog hammock. These hammocks
essentially keep your dog snugly comfortable while providing total protection
for the back of your car.
Kennel – If your dog has a tendency to jump between the front and back
seats, tries to get onto your lap when you’re driving, or is always trying to
get out the window; get yourself a suitable kennel until your dog learns some
road manners. Driving is very exciting for your dog and they may not always
understand the dangers, give them time and play it safe until they start to
calm down and sit still on trips.
Travel Dog Bowl – You may not be aware of this, but when those little
amounts of water come dribbling onto your floor or seat because of a bump,
swerve, or overly enthusiastic dog, they inevitably cause damage and

Dog Collars and Leashes are known dog accessories to keep their pet safe
and protected. When you decide to go for a walk outside and would want a
companion? Our dogs are our best volunteer, and we all know that.
But you have to keep in mind that when we think of strolling with our
dogs, we have to make sure that our pets are unharmed and can do no harm to
others. Do harm to others? Yes, even if you have the friendliest dog in the
neighborhood, there are situations that are just way out of our control that
they can do harm and damages to others. How to prevent this situation to
happen? Make sure that when you go out, put a leash and collar on your dog.
Collars and leashes are very helpful accessories. They are often called
accessories for safety. Though, we all know that in the market nowadays, there
are different kinds of collars and leashes that vary in style and designs. We
may just think that collars and leashes are just mere dog accessories. They are
not important or even considered necessary. But these dog accessories have a
purpose. Just like the example that i have mentioned in the above paragraph.
When you go out with your dog without a collar and a leash on can be extremely
Dogs get easily attracted to food, especially when they are hungry and
what if on your way home your dog saw some kids eating hotdogs or chicken
drumstick, food that entices a hungry dog. Dog’s instinct would be to jump over
those kids and snatch away their food. What if more than that happens like one
of the kids get bitten by your dog? Or what if your dog crosses the street and
get bumped … Read more
If you are planning to buy a new
cat, you should also consider buying accessories for the cat. Cat accessories
are important if you want to get a good, well-behaved cat. Don’t think that
your pet only needs food to eat. Remember that cats are animals like us, and
they don’t just need food in their lives. They will need other things too.
Some cat accessories that you need to get for your pet
1. Sleeping Bed:- This would help
your kitty to have a good sleep any time it wants to sleep. This would also
prevent your pet to stop sleeping on your couch or bed. If you get a sleeping
bed, you cat might ruin your couch with its nails.
2. Nail trimmers:- You would need
this to trim your kitty’s nail, so that it doesn’t ruin your furniture. Kitties
love sharpening their nails, and they do love doing that on any surface or
3. Scratch Pad:- It can also come
as a scratch mat. You would need to train your cat to be using it anytime it
wants to sharpen its nails.
4. Pet Carrier:- This is what you
would use to carry your pet if you are moving or traveling to a place. This
carrier can also be used for dogs, but it depends on the size of the dog.
5. Cat Litter and Pan:- You would
have to train your cat to use this. This is what your cat would use to
defecate. For those who don’t know how to use it, the cat litter is poured into
the pan, and kept in view of the cat. This would enable the cat to see it
anytime it wants to excrete any waste products from its body.… Read more
The other day at work I beheld one
of God’s most curious, attractive and intelligent creatures: the cat. It was at
close range-on the bonnet of my car, in fact. What transpired in the next
twenty minutes convinced me that cat pet insurance and cat accessories are
quite unnecessary. Cats are a law unto themselves. They have a cunning scheme
of world domination, quite obviously own their masters and treat them and
everybody else with superior disdain.
Even if you used cat proof fencing
these silky smooth operators would find a way to get to the shops and get their
hair coiffed and groomed and their nails done at the same time-the bill, of
course, no concern to them.
I was briefly resting in my car in
between sales calls. It was a bright sunny winter’s day and I was at a Seniors
Retirement facility. Whilst nurses and those in their care were planning their
day, some taking the sun, a black cat with green eyes jumped on the bonnet of
my car and started preening itself.
And I mean-it went to town! It
started licking one haunch then the other. Then it looked around furtively and
started giving its lower legs a tongue massage, then moving on to its belly
where it cleaned and straightened any disheveled tufts of hair.
I was captivated and it seemed the
cat did not see me at all through the windscreen, even though I was no more
than three feet from it. Perhaps it was the glare of the harsh light that
prevented this?-I wondered. The preening carried on for quite a while. At one
point the local sphinx locked eyes with me and then, obviously unimpressed with
the perceived level of threat, lifted its head imperiously into the crisp
winter air and … Read more
Australian finches are remarkable
little birds. The name is a broad term and is so named because there are many
different types of finches that fit into this category. Some are the Zebra
Finch, Painted Finch, Lady Gouldian and there are a variety of more that fit
into the category.
Of all of the birds that are
considered part of the Australian family the Zebra finch makes the best pet.

Zebra finch as already discussed
is part of Australian finches classification. They sing and will do well in a
small to medium bird cage. They need a well balanced diet and to be kept warm
and out of drafts.
When choosing a pet bird these
sweet finches are the easiest to keep. When choosing the right foods for their
diets it is important to remember to keep it well balanced with seed, greens
and protein. One of the best foods to give them is mashed hard boiled eggs.
When trying to introduce the
Australian finch to new foods it is best to do it while they are young. Older
birds tend to shy away from anything new and will be harder to convince that
the new food supply is good for them. If a breeder has an older bird that will
eat a variety of foods many times this bird will be used as a trainer. When it
is feeding time the breeder will put the older bird in with the youngsters and
they will see the trainer eat the foods. It is important to offer greens to
your Australian finches to maintain good health.
