Zoopar Teams up with Freedom Service Dogs: #UnleashYourNext Adventure

Somewhere deep in the dusty stacks of the City basement is lost video documentation of me as a 17-year-old kid being pulled (literally) down a parade route by two large wolf dogs as they bolted towards the safety of the car. Easily twice my weight, they were in a complete panic after I stupidly took them to a street parade in the wild west and many began shooting their pistols in the air.

Let’s just say I learned a hard lesson about having quality equipment and well-trained, socialized dogs. 

I told you that story so I can tell you this one: I haven’t always known a lot about dogs. Some of what I learned is from experience, other things I learned through school, research and the vastly different approaches from trainers around the world. All of my interest stems from a deep and abiding love of animals - along with a willingness to learn all I could about them.

If you're anything like me, you are constantly fighting the battle of a clean home. This is especially true after the holidays, when pine needles have been tracked around the house, dogs and cats are petted and brushed almost constantly, and mud is being tracked indoors on a regular basis. I hate carpet, and yet our entire house has wal-to-wall carpet flooring. 

This is why finding a good vacuum is so important to me. We can burn through a vacuum inside of a few weeks, so we love finding the ones that have staying power. 

The Eureka Ultimate Clean Pet Upright Vacuum Cleaner is one that we'll be keeping around for a good, long time. There is a lot to love in this power package!

We have pets and you live in the desert, there is really no escaping fur and dust. Even if we clean every day (and who’s got time for that nonsense?), we’re still going to have fur and dust floating around in the house. 

I don’t clean every day, but I do clean every few days or this place would be out of control. That’s why I want technology to be as effective as possible. So today, we’re taking a look at the "sharpest tools in the cleaning shed" - items that will make your life a lot easier and help keep your home fur-free.

Wellness Pet Mats for Pets and People

User Rating: 5 / 5

We recently got a Wellness Pet Mat in for review and I’m in love with it. The cats actively seek it out to sleep on, the dogs walk out of their way to stand on it, and Cheiss is finding it to be a huge assist for his old bones to stand on it while he eats and sleep on it at night. This is something that should be in every veterinary office to help senior pets find traction on tables and just have a nice place to lay down.

What is a wellness mat? If you’ve ever attended a trade show, you have probably walked on a booths’ ultra-padded carpet and felt an immediate sense of relief. The Pet Wellness Mat is about 100 times better - ultra-padded wellness pet mat is a low-profile, therapeutically cushioned surface that evenly distributes weight for better joint health, while contouring the body to offer more support and prevent pressure sores and calluses.

Honestly, if I could afford to have this flooring throughout my entire home, I would absolutely do it. To see why I’m so enamored, you need only step onto the mat - it sells itself.
