Pet Product Considerations 101

Before I begin, I’m predicting that this blog posting will obtain more favorable feedback than any other I’ve written due to the “pet” content. Please contact me if you want the results.

Most people would do just about anything for their pets. If you’re a pet owner, odds are you’ve lavished your pet with fancy beds, plush pillows, and pet-friendly gadgets that were not the most budget friendly — and have yet to be used. We’re all guilty of it, and we’d all love to avoid it. People often compare pets to children — and like children, buying the perfect gift for a pet can be somewhat of a guessing game. Rather than getting sucked into the “But it’s so cute!” mentality, try purchasing fun gifts that will actually get played with.

What kind of pet accessories should I buy?

Because there are so many options out there, you can easily get out of control when buying pet accessories. Think about what your furry friend really needs, and what he or she would use, and start with the necessities. Dogs and cats both need pet feeders and water bowls, as well as some kind of fluffy bed. Gates, kennels and crates are good for keeping them contained, while cat perches and chew toys help entertain. You’ll want a litter box for cats and fish bowls for your swimming friends, and no dog is happy without a leash for long walks.

What should I consider when buying pet accessories?

Pets love to play, and sometimes they play rough, so be sure to invest in high-quality, durable items. While fluffy satin pillow beds might look nice, they will not stand up for long when you have a playful pet. Finding strong pet beds is key, especially since they spend so much time lounging and sleeping. The same goes with toys; with an active dog, plastic toys will only last a week, while rope or rubber toys are much more resilient. They might be more expensive, but you will be making less trips to the store.
