1. A carabiner makes it quick and easy to secure your dog with its leash when you’re in public.
2. No pockets in your running shorts but have a dog? Here’s the best place for your keys.
4. Look for the extra money to start piling up from dog ownership.
5. If your dog eats too fast, put a ball in their food.
6. Dampen a rubber glove and run it over your furniture to get long dog hair removed.
8. Put another collar around your retractable leash so that when needed, you can slip your arm through to use both hands. (For instance, when checking the mail).
9. When your dog gets loose, don’t chase it; lie down and pretend you’re hurt.
If you chase your dog, its instinct is to run. If you lie down on the ground and act hurt (yelping, etc.), its instinct is to come check on you and make sure you’re alright. Feels like a dirty trick at the time, but it’s worth saving your dog from getting hit.
12. Stop your dogs from making a mess (or stepping in) their dog bowls.
14. You can easily remove pet hair from your carpet with a squeegee.
18. Make an ice lick on hot days for your little buddy.
21. Memorize and know what can harm your dog and what shouldn’t be left in the open.
22. If your dog hates when you try to brush its teeth, squeeze some enzymatic dog toothpaste onto a Nylabone or rope toy.
23. Instead of spending money on Kong stuffing, use cheese or small amounts of peanut butter. Your dog loves the flavor and it will take more work to get it out.
24. Want your dog’s breath to smell better? Sprinkle some parsley on their food.
