The DogWatch dogs LOVE summer. Biz the Lab likes to go swimming at lunchtime. Lucy the Pug mix loves to go to Maine to visit family. Nellie the Aussie loves to roll around in the freshly cut grass. And Gizmo the Papillon puppy? He loves EVERYTHING about summer, especially his Friday trips to DogWatch to see his new friends!
In honor of our summer-loving pups, the DogWatch team has pulled together our top 5 tips to help make your summer a perfect one for you and your dog. Have fun, stay safe, and enjoy the sunshine!
Summer calls for outdoor vacations, often including our four-footed best friends. If your vacation plans include visiting any of our 59 scenic National Parks with your dog, planning ahead and knowing the regulations before you leave will make the experience more enjoyable for you and your pooch.
With the school year ending soon and summer vacations ahead of us, many people will be packing up the car and piling in their pets for some sun and fun. Looking for a vacation destination that will be just as great for Fido as it is for you? Check out DogWatch’s list of pet-friendly cities for some awesome options. From off-leash dog parks to doggie-friendly dining and public transportation, these cities have it all!
Now that May is here and the weather’s getting warmer, both we and our four-legged friends are out and about far more often, which also means we’re away from our primary source of information: our computers. However, with today’s technology, no computer is no problem! Here are some helpful apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android that will make sure that out of the house doesn’t mean out of touch.
Pet First Aid
None of us want to think about our pet being injured or having a medical emergency, but unfortunately, it does happen. The Pet First Aid app aims to help in these situations. It provides videos, articles, and illustrations on first aid and triage for common medical emergencies for both cats and dogs, and covers everything from cuts and bee stings to CPR and bandaging. The iOS version also allows you to record your pet’s vital medical information and veterinary info so you’re always on top of his medical needs. $3.99 for iOS; $2.99 for Android (Android version only contains First Aid information; updates are expected which will allow the ability to track medical stats)
