Pet First Aid by American Red Cross Knowing the basics to pet first aid is crucial, and your pet will definitely thank you for it – even though they’ll do everything except stay still while you’re trying to bandage up that wound. Make sure you’ve got a pet first aid kit on hand as well – the ASPCA has a great list of the must-have essentials.
BarkCam If you’re anything like me, your photo album on your phone is FILLED with pictures of your pups – no shame, am I right? But sometimes, getting your fur ball to pose for pictures and actually sit still can be close to impossible! BarkCam has come up with a brilliant solution to this ever-so-frustrating problem. The app emits a sound that will grab your dog’s attention so you can snap that adorable picture – so genius!
DogVacay When you have a pet, going on a vacation doesn’t seem to be as stress-free as it used to be. I can’t stand the thought of leaving my dog at a boarding kennel. I’d much rather have them stay in another home where they’ll be treated like part of the family. This is where DogVacay comes in handy! They have so many pet sitters that will take care of your pup or kitty while you’re away on vacation, complete with reviews from people who have first-hand experience with each sitter. It definitely gives you some peace of mind knowing that your fur baby is getting lots of love and much needed exercise.

It helps you improve your dog’s health and also explains any change in behavior that you may have been noticing.
