Owning Your First Pet – Top Tips

Owning your first pet can be a very daunting experience. Choosing the pet, a name, picking out everything they will need, it’s all a lot of work. I’m here to share with you some of my top tips to owning your first pet.

1- Research
The first and possibly most important is research. Conduct lots of research into all the different types of pets. When you have chosen one, research what they need, what they like and dislike. This will help you create the ideal home for them.

2- Visiting
One of the best things you can do when buying your first pet is visit them. Especially if it is a cat or dog. This will help them to get used to you and make them feel more relaxed when coming home.

3- Preparation
Before bringing your pet home make sure you are prepared. Have your list and make sure you have everything. It will make life a lot easier if everything is set up and ready.

How to find a good dog groomer

Having your dog left in the hands of a groomer can be a daunting experience.  You rightly want the best care for your pooch and give them that spa feel treatment they deserve after all every dog needs a pamper session.  Firstly when looking for a groomer speak to other dog owners, they will be happy to share their experiences good and bad.  Then do a social media search , check for reviews and recommendations.  Then lastly go in and visit the groomers before  making any appointments.  A reputable groomer will be happy for you to visit and importantly listen to the dogs already being groomed.  Check out how they interact with your dog.  Ask the questions about what products they use, do they trim their claws, clean their teeth and provide flee treatments.  Some dog groomers like you to collect the dog LG within a certain time frame, so it’s also important you collection times fit in to your day.
