Quick view: 5 Ways To Fix Your Dog’s Home-Alone Loneliness
We know that when you’re at work or out running errands you’re thinking about your dog. You wonder if they are safe. You worry about whether they are bored and you assume they are lonely. What’s a pet parent to do? You can’t always stay home. You certainly can’t take your dog with you everywhere you go (remember, NEVER leave a dog in a car)! What’s a pet parent to do? We have some suggestions and have come up with five ways to “fix” your dog’s home-alone loneliness and relieve some of his separation anxiety.   Tire him out. Every pet parent knows that a tired dog is a happy, and probably less-destructive dog, right? If you know you’re going to be out and about and that your beloved fur baby will be home alone, get up earlier or plan your day so you can take him for a long, exhilarating run or game of fetch in the backyard. If the weather isn’t cooperating you can find a way to play some rousing, fun games in the house. This activity serves more than one purpose. You’re tiring your pup out You’re having a great bonding time with him When your dog is tired, he may sleep the day away, won’t be as lonely and might not suffer as much from separation anxiety....

Quick view: How To Relieve Your Dog’s Stress & Keep Them E...
The holidays are great fun (and for some, great stress). The same is true for our fur-babies. While you may enjoy having a houseful of friends and family who are gathering around the table for meals, opening gifts, spending the nights and bringing “chaos” to your home, this can be a stressful time for your dog. A houseful of strangers can lead to anxiety and even “bad” behaviors from your normally well-behaved dog (and cat). We have tips on how to entertain and relieve your dog’s stress during these holiday weeks. These tips are ideal for any family gathering no matter when it happens throughout the year. Understand that your dog isn’t being bad. He or she is nervous and if the family routine has been upended, you may find your dog is making messes in the house, jumping on your guests, barking, chewing inappropriate items, pacing, not eating and a host of other behaviors related to being stressed out and anxious. When you look at a holiday gathering from your dog’s point of view (in some cases literally) you notice that for a tiny dog, all he sees is ankles and feet. He runs the risk of getting stepped on or tripped over. A big dog who may not seem rambunctious when it’s just... (go to article)
Quick view: Planning A Wedding While Working For A Startup
Planning a wedding: “It’ll be fun” they say, “It’ll be easy” they say. Well let me tell you, it’s not all white roses and champagne…well maybe it is, and it is very exciting. Planning my wedding has been jumping one rose covered hurdle after another. Though it has been very enjoyable and exciting, it has also added lots to do on top of working for a startup. Working for a startup has been much like drinking from a fire hose connected to an endless supply of water, and the water is in the form of many hats. Though I may not wear as many hats as most, I definitely have my work cut out for me. My role at PetHub is customer support and sometimes working in the incredible world of Excel spreadsheets (which is always fun and a good challenge). I also help out where I am needed, whether that’s helping with fulfillment, or just the day-to-day office needs. Helping customers on the front lines of navigating PetHub makes up most of customer support, which usually keeps me busy throughout the day. It can also keep me busy throughout the weekend when the ticket, or email, count is high. Working for a startup has been a roller coaster all on it’s own, but when the joy of planning a wedding...

Quick view: Accidental Pet Theft: Don't Break The Bond
Rescuing vs. Stealing Animal theft happens more than I realized after I dug in and talked to people in “the biz.” I’m not talking about intentional theft of an animal but accidental theft. Yes, it’s a thing. We all love that good feeling we get when we’ve done a good deed or believe we’ve helped make the world a better place in some way. Most of us also know that sting from when we realize that what we thought was a good thing, actually caused harm or made a situation worse. That sting, for me, is usually because I didn’t have all the facts and I reacted with emotion instead of stepping back and taking stock of the situation. I bring this up because I’ve witnessed a few times now where someone (other than me) acted with good intentions, but hadn’t fully thought things through when it came to helping an animal. Two Examples A friend of mine told me once about a cat that came by daily to sit outside and watch their yoga classes. "He's so cute, friendly and healthy looking! He’s here almost every day. I think I should take him and give him a nice home." I had another friend recently say something similar, that a cat was found, it was really sweet, and she thought she might... (go to article)
