    1. Dog food can be extremely expensive.

    However, with a smaller dog, you will not have to buy as much food for them as you would for a larger dog. This may be a key factor to consider when thinking about whether or not to buy small dog breeds.

    2. They are super easy to cuddle with.

    If you are looking to buy a dog for the mere fact that they are the most comforting animals on the planet then you may want to have a small dog that is easier to cuddle. Large breeds might think they are the ultimate lap dog, but it can be hard to oblige a 50lb Golden Retriever!

  • Puppies for Sale: Is Your Home a Good Fit for a New Puppy?

    Here at Petland, we have many puppies for sale and believe in providing education to help you pick the right one!

    Buying a puppy can be extremely exhilarating and the purest feeling in the world.

Here are a few things to check in your home to make sure it’s a safe and comfortable place for your new puppy.

    Do not keep small objects on the ground.puppies for sale

    Puppies are explorers and the one way they really like to do this is by tasting things that are unfamiliar to them. Small toys on the ground can be extremely dangerous and pose as a choking hazard for your puppy because they might try and eat it. If you do have lots of toys for your kids make sure that they are put away before you allow your dog to enter this room.

    Make sure your dog always has access for elimination.

    We are aware of a lot of new pet owners who have doggy doors installed in their homes. These are great ideas, but they only work with dogs who are trained and aware of the opening. Otherwise you need to be prepared to take a lot of walks in the beginning!

    Are there places in your home that you are uncomfortable with your puppy exploring?

    Before bringing home one of the puppies for sale that you purchased, make sure that you get a safety gate to limit their access to the areas in your home that you wish to deem as restricted. Most dogs have a natural inquisitive nature and would like to explore their surroundings. Having a safety gate installed will keep them from potentially hazardous objects in your home.

    Take a look at this list several times and print it out if necessary. It is important for your dog’s safety. We want to make sure that the puppies for sale in our store go to homes that are safe and secure. If you have more questions on puppy proofing your home, take a look at some of our previous posts and feel free to come into our store to talk even more.

  • 4 Healthy Ways to Maintain Your Dogs Paws

    Did you know it is very important to take care of your dogs paws especially in the winter?

    Protecting your dogs paws in the winter can minimize infection, prevent irritation, and keep dogs out of pain. Of course, the teeth, eyes, and ears are just as important, but for now, we will focus on the health of dogs paws. Petland wants you to be prepared this winter season by offering some important tips to keep your dog from visiting the vet for paw pain.

Keeping your dog’s nails trimmed provides comfort and safety for your pet and you as the owner. Check out Petland locations near you for advice or tools you can use for nail trimming.dogs paws

    Walking your dog in the winter or summer.

    The health of your dogs paws could be compromised in extremely cold or hot temperatures. When walking your pet outside be sure to check for a clear pathway for them to walk. Protecting dog paws in the winter can be done in several ways – apply Vaseline for comfort before walking, rub off their paws when returning from walking to remove salt or debris from their paws, or massage their paws after bath time for stimulating blood circulation.

    Pay attention to the time.

    Make sure you pay attention to how long your dog is outside during extreme temperatures. We are firm believers in the healthy activity of your pets, but also the care. The care should always come first. If your dog is noticeably uncomfortable from being outside in the heat or cold, take them inside for a break.

  • 4 Questions to Ask Yourself When Setting Your Pet Goals This Year

    Setting goals is a great way to target what you want and bring your desires into fruition.

    Goals can also be for your pets at home. Improve your pet’s life by making a list of what you would like your pup to accomplish. A great example of a goal this year could be researching efficiently walking dogs in cold weather. We at Petland in SC can assist in making your lifestyle and pet’s life much easier by listing some very basic goals that are easy to achieve.

    Are you spending enough quality time with your dog?

    We get so busy with our day to day life that we may ignore our dogs at home more often than we should. There may be a late meeting that interferes with your pet play time. You may have a late party you attended on the weekend that cut right into your bonding time. Our doggies need quality time too. Think about how you want to intentionally spend time with him or her and pencil it in on your calendar.

    Is your pet in shape?

    This is a question we are asking to spark some thinking on if your pet needs to get out more. Walking dogs in cold weather can be a legitimate reason for a pet owner to remain indoors. Dogs can become overweight or out of shape as well as humans if there is a lack of activity. To make sure your dog is getting the exercise he or she needs it may be a good idea to set a goal to increase your pet’s activity for the year.petland in sc

    Activity and social skills may go hand in hand when it comes to setting your pet’s goals.

Look up some dog parks in your area to see if there’s one near your home.

    Is your doggie on the right diet?

    Eating the right dog food can be essential to your dog’s health and energy. Ensure your dog is getting everything he or she needs by taking your dog to a veterinarian for recommendations. Also, you may want to research the appropriate diet for your specific breed.

    You can also visit a Petland in SC or the closest location near you to ask us anything about your dog. Our staff would be delighted to help as we know a thing or two on walking dogs in cold weather, it’s a goal of ours regularly.

    Tip Three – blot don’t rub.

    Living in a tiny space can get very tricky. It requires an ample amount of awareness on where to keep your things and how many things you actually own in each space.

    Whether you have a big or small dog, they should have a space they can claim as their own. Doggies like to have a special place they can sleep or take a nap. Generally, they also like to eat in the same area or space. When living tiny it is a good idea during your planning to include a space for your pup he or she can claim as their own. If you don’t have a backyard use a dog park or nearby large area to walk your dog.

    3. Closer to the outdoors.

    Ensure your dog has enough play time outdoors by scheduling the same time every day if possible, to take a walk.

Rather if it is a tiny home, a recreational vehicle, or a smaller home your pup should adjust to your lifestyle if you cater to their playful needs. Dogs love to play outdoors and should have the freedom to do so to maintain their good health.
