Simple Life Hacks for Dog Owners

1. Use Baking Soda to Clean up Pet Urine If your dog pees on the carpet use baking soda (which is also great at removing odors) to clean it up. Pour some baking soda over the spot, let it sit for 20 minutes and then vacuum it up. 

2. Use a Window squeegee to Clean Up Fur From Carpet 

Do you get a ton of dog hair lodged deep into your carpet? Use a window squeegee to pick up fur in your carpet & on your furniture. Scrape it along the carpet & just watch as that hair comes up. 

3. Cover Up Scratch Marks on Furniture with a Walnut 

Do you have a few scratch marks on your wooden furniture? You can cover them up by rubbing a walnut over them. The natural oils in walnuts seep into wood, making them a simple way to help cover up small scratches in your furniture.

 

5 Dog Sleeping Positions and What They Mean

 

 

As much as dogs like to run, play and sniff out the world around them, they also like to snooze. Healthy adult dogs spend an average of 12 to 14 hours per day sleeping, and puppies, senior dogs or those with health problems may require even more rest.

Pet parents witness all sorts of dog sleeping positions, especially if they share a bed or couch with their pups. You have the back loungers, the spread-out space hogs, and the curled-up cuties. But what do these dog sleeping positions mean? Why do dogs sleep the way they do?

This helpful guide breaks down five common dog sleeping positions and explains some of the science behind why dogs sleep in certain ways.

Will you be my Valentine? Meet Abe!

 

What’s up guys? My name is Abe. Some call me Awesome Abe ?

I was found and rescued on the 710 freeway, a few years ago. As you can imagine, that was quite a scary experience and it’s left me a little unsure of things. It’s ok though, because I live with my forever foster family, who make me feel very safe and loved.

I would really love to have my own Live Love Leader! If you’re a Live Love Leader that means that you choose to donate regularly to help with my needs. It would honestly mean the world to a dog like me ??

 

If you are interested in donating to Abe’s care or adopting him. please contact Live Love rescue:

Are you looking for a Valentine? Meet Fiona!

Hello everyone! My name is Fiona. As you can tell from my ears, there’s a good chance that I might be a long lost relative of Gizmo. They are very helpful for detecting the rustling of treat packets?

I was rescued from a local funeral home in my hometown of Long Beach a couple of years ago, thanks to my friends at @fixlbpets. I am currently living my best life by the beach, enjoying the fresh ocean breeze and feeling the sand between my paw pads ?

I truly do live life to the fullest, but sadly I do have an awfully long list of old lady health issues. If you would like to help contribute to my medical costs, that would be a truly wonderful Valentine gift! ?

5 Signs Your Dog Needs A Joint Supplement NOW!

Just like humans, the majority of a dog’s immune system resides in his gut. The gut is the largest immune organ in the body and contains approximately 70% of all immune cells. So keeping your dog’s digestive system running optimally is essential to making sure that he stays healthy, active, and lives a full and healthy life.

One way to potentially improve your dog’s digestive health is to offer him a daily probiotic supplement. There have been extensive studies on the benefits of probiotics in humans, however, veterinary research is just starting to really dive into how supplementing your pup with a variety of good bacteria can aid in keeping him healthy.

Springtime pet safety

Warmer weather, blooming plants and buzzing insects can all spell trouble for the pets in your care, but depending on where you live, winter hazards may still apply! Stay alert to weather patterns, don’t allow pets outside unsupervised and wash melting salts from paws to prevent poisonous ingestion.

If, however, the bright and beautiful days of spring are upon you, remember that doggie dangers and cat-astrophes can happen anywhere, so professional pet sitters must be prepared to prevent disasters and stabilize injuries before veterinary care is available.
