Saving Money as a Pet Parent

We all want to spoil and care for our pets as best we can, and one major factor that plays in is the financial aspect. This implies money spent on feeding, the vet, pet supplies, grooming products, and toys amongst others. For the most part, this is money that you probably don't mind spending and perhaps you even enjoy doing so. But certainly, you won't mind learning some ways to cut back, so, here are some proven ways to save money as a pet parent: 

  1. Prioritize Your Pet's Health 

It's a fact that most dogs are not big fans of the vet. But maintaining your pup's quality of life and saving yourself money involves routine trips to a capable vet. By ensuring that your dog gets adequate exercise and a healthy diet, you can start wading off ailments that may come later in their lives. 80% of dogs over age three experience dental problems, so, make sure to keep your pup's teeth healthy. 

  1. Work With a Budget 

Lesson 101 in saving money is working with a budget. This budget would be based on your dog's needs and topping the list would be recurring expenses like quality food. Some expenses that are far in between such as a vet visit should be planned for ahead of time. After breaking down monthly expenses that are absolutely necessary, you can eliminate the ones that can be dispensed with, and you're on track to saving money. 

  1. Make Your Dog Treats 

You'd be surprised at what all the money you spend on treats sums up to. We can't help spoiling our pups with chewy treats and tasty goodies and making them yourself can save you a great deal of cash. Homemade dog treats using ingredients you already have at home are surprisingly easy to make and healthier even! You could also make a significant portion and preserve in the freezer. 

  1. Regular Doggo Playtime  

If you've seen the movie Marley and Me, then you probably understand where this is coming from. A tired dog is a happy dog and in addition, can save you a great deal of money. If you have a dog who constantly needs physical or mental exercise for stimulation, and they aren't getting it, they could lovingly take it out on your shoes or couch. Provided their teeth and claws can get in, they would stimulate themselves. Save yourself extra expenses by creating playtime for Fido!

  1. Groom Your Dog at Home 

Bath time is a pretty great time for bonding. There's nothing like saving yourself money while deepening the loving bond between you and your pup. Professional groomers could cost a pretty penny, and there's the stressful drive down there too, depending on how often you groom. When you're grooming, make sure to concentrate on the coat, the paws, the inside of the ears, and other semi-hidden parts of your dog's body.

The Beautiful Blue Frenchie

The Blue Frenchie is a rare but beautiful member of the French Bulldog family. They are sweet little comical pups who garners tons of attention virtually everywhere their presence is known. Below, we are sharing some known and unknown facts about this rare breed. They Have Great Temperaments Do not read into the Blue Frenchie’s somewhat glum face, because they are far from it. They are widely known to be silly and entertaining!  They are well behaved with family, friends, strangers, and other dogs. They don’t require much space, adapting well in apartments or on a farm. With the exception of barking to announce the arrival of a visitor, they’re otherwise quiet and respectable doggie companions. They need a little patience during the training process, because they are Bulldogs after all, which means they can be stubborn! They are overall great as pets. Controversy and Legitimacy When choosing a Blue Frenchie, you’ll soon learn that there is some controversy surrounding their very existence. We’ll look deeper into some of those issues regarding their gene type and breed standards. The Blue Frenchie came about as a result of a recessive allele on one of the genes that determine the color of their coats. What would normally be black hair becomes blue in parts and in some cases, a strong blue color covers their entire body. These colors are highly attractive to many future owners. They’re striking and rare and rightfully stand out from standard French Bulldogs and other dogs, in general. As a result of their rare color, they are not recognized by the American Kennel Club or any other dog associations. Consequently, the Blue Frenchie may not be as desirable as a breed standard, especially for owners who wish to show their dogs. Final Thought Despite the controversy surrounding the Blue Frenchie, this does not affect their popularity and how they have increasingly become household favorites. They may look different from their French Bulldog counterparts, but they are equally desirable and well-mannered dogs. Come to our store near Miami Florida and see for yourself!
