Quick view: Does your dog eat a lot? It might be genetic
This is a featured guest article from Embark Veterinary, the world leader in dog genetics with a mission to end preventable disease in dogs by providing dog DNA tests that enable pet owners to learn about their dog’s breed, ancestry, and health - all with a simple cheek swab. Discover how DNA could be keeping your pup from feeling full after mealtimes, causing life-long health problems Recent studies have revealed that 56% of dogs in the United States are overweight or obese, but the extra squishiness around your pup’s stomach can cause a myriad of health problems including canine diabetes, heart problems, and arthritis. Lucky for us, modern day science and technology can help pet parents have access to valuable information when it comes to their dog’s health. Since 2019, Embark Veterinary’s doggy DNA tests have been able to test for a gene (called Pre-Opiomelanocortin, or POMC for short) that may be causing their dog’s overeating. This helps pet parents make informed lifestyle changes to improve the health of their dogs. The POMC gene can contribute to obesity in all dog breeds, it specifically affects Labrador Retrievers and Flat Coated Retrievers -- which isn’t a big... (go to article)
Quick view: PetHub Picks: Our Favorite Toys for Young Puppies
We like to be transparent at PetHub: we have affiliate partnerships with some of the companies listed below and we may receive a commission for purchases made through the links in this article at no extra cost to you. PetHub's COO, Lorien, and her 4-month old Boston Terrier explore the world of puppy toys and have selected some of their absolute favorites. If you have a new puppy (or are getting ready to bring one home), don’t forget an essential supply that you must have on hand -- TOYS!! This isn’t a place to scrimp, in my opinion, because your toy arsenal will save you oodles in destroyed shoes, power cords and furniture corners. That said, there are SO many dog toy options out there, it can be overwhelming and expensive (seriously, I have a compulsion to buy a doggo toy whenever I see one in the store -- yes, I need help!!), and if you are a new dog parent, it can be challenging to know what to look for. Not all great dog toys are great for puppies, and shopping for toys for a puppy should not be taken lightly. Here are some things you’ll want to keep in mind: Size: You will want to pick toys that your young pup can easily pick up and carry around, AND not so small... (go to article)

Author: Nathan Kehn (@NathanTheCatLady), Director of Cat Integration and Tabby Brand Manager There are plenty of places for cat lovers to go on dates, and not all are necessarily based around cats! The one thing I have learned about cat people is that they are usually very easy going and patient people because they are used to being around cats. I would always highly recommend hitting a cat cafe nearby if at all possible. Cats running around while you drink coffee will give you something to keep you two... (go to article)

This is a featured guest article from Dig: The Dog Person's Dating App Author: Leigh Isaacson, Co-founder & CEO of Dig and Tabby Dating Apps Looking for an outdoor, Covid-conscious dog-friendly meetup idea?

Quick view: Bringing Hedy Home: Starting Puppy Training Early
We like to be transparent at PetHub: we have affiliate partnerships with some of the companies listed below and we may receive a commission for purchases made through the links in this article at no extra cost to you. The First 10 Days of Training (Starting Off On The Right Paw) So, we've got a new puppy... now what? Let’s set the scene, shall we?  It’s December 2020, the last few weeks of a year we will all never forget (though I’m sure many wish they could). Nearly everyone and their uncle has a new “pandemic fur kid” it seems, and our household has just joined the fray.  Now, we are no strangers to fur kids by any means (come on, we founded a company called PetHub for goodness sakes!), but we haven’t been “puppy parents” for nearly 10 years, so we are frankly a bit rusty.  And, unlike previous puppy-dom times in our home, we are no longer "carefree, got lots o’free time DINKs (dual-income no kids)" -- we have a HUMAN kiddo, too (and a TODDLER one for that matter!) and our lives are kinda nutty busy. I think it’s important to understand our thought process on adding to the family: “Hey, honey, I have an idea. Ya know what would make all the chaos of stay-at-... (go to article)
