Feeling dry and warm: Practical autumn clothes for dogs

Clothes for dogs seem to be useless to many masters. "It's an animal, it has fur, it can't be cold," many of them justify their attitude.

No wonder that there is a saying: "You would not even send a dog out in weather like this." But we have tips for autumn clothes, thanks to which you can "send out" your pet in any time, because he will stay nice and dry.

How to transport a doggie in a car or Safety in the first place

The holiday time is approaching and all stubborn dog keepers take their pets with them, of course. But many of them do not know how to transport them properly in a car. In addition, the law deals with the issue only in general. It does not specify where the doggie should be placed or whether he should be fastened. You will only read there that "the transport of live animals must not jeopardize the safety of the driver, the persons or animals being transported or the safety of road traffic." So how can this be done to ensure the safety of all two- and four-legged passengers?

Protection of Pets Against Ticks and Fleas

Protection of Pets Against Ticks and Fleas

With a warm winter the time for applying tick and flea prevention products comes much sooner than we are used to. You can choose from many products available in pharmacies, drugstores, veterinarians or pet stores.
When choosing a product, keep in mind the possible health problems of your dog, the specifics of the environment in which your pet lives as well as the lifestyle of your pet.
If you have to shampoo and bath your pet daily for medical reasons, you will substantially reduce the effectiveness of spot-on products (pipettes that are applied behind the neck). If you have an active swimmer, you should avoid bathing outdoors for at least three (but preferably five) days after the spot-on has been applied, so that the product is absorbed sufficiently and the washout rate is reduced.
