Get your cat to sleep in his bed by locating it in a peaceful, out-of-the-way location that isn’t too hot or too cold. You can sometimes entice a cat to try a new bed by sprinkling a little catnip or a few treats in it. Another trick is to put a favorite cat blanket or an article of your clothing in there. Sometimes it takes cats a little while to warm up to new things, or you may need to try a different type of bed instead.
Cats do need cat beds so they have a comfortable place to call their own. Some cats may prefer to curl up on the furniture or in a special hiding place, but it is still a good idea to give them a safe and comfortable place to rest. Cat beds can also help keep your furniture clean by attracting your kitty away from human beds and sofas. Try putting a cat bed on the couch if your feline likes to relax there and see if she likes it more!
The best beds for cats are cat-sized, comfortable and easy for you to clean. Feline preferences vary widely, so you may need to try a few styles to see which one your cat likes best. Try a cave-style bed for cats who like privacy or a bolster bed for those who like to curl up. You can find orthopedic or heated models for joint relief, cooling cat beds for warmer climates and stylish options that blend right in with your décor. The Pets Club has a great selection of cat beds, so you should have no trouble finding the purr-fect one for your furry friend!
Clean a cat bed according to the care instructions on the label or package. Many cat beds are machine washable or have removable covers that you can just throw in the washer for easy care. Others may need to be spot cleaned or lint rolled instead. Be sure to read the care instructions before you buy a new bed.
Dog clothing can serve a useful purpose; for example, dogs who feel the cold can benefit from a dog coat during cooler weather. Anxious or stress-prone dogs can be placed in an anxiety wrap to help alleviate these feelings. After an operation, your pet may have itchy stitches. Clean pet clothing can help add a protective barrier if your dog can scratch at an incision with its feet.
If your pet shows discomfort, stress, or anxiety when wearing clothing, you should not dress your dog in unnecessary outfits. Additionally, if the clothing or costume is uncomfortable for your dog, it is best to forget it. Monitoring your dog's behavior is the best way to gauge if they are comfortable wearing clothing, as it will only suit some dogs.
Some dogs do like wearing clothes, but every dog is different. For example, dogs with thicker coats may overheat in clothing, and others may find it unpleasant. On the other hand, some dogs enjoy wearing a dress; it can be an excellent way to warm your pup up in cooler temperatures. Acclimate your canine to wearing clothing gradually, and watch for any signs of distress or discomfort. Be sure to leave your dog supervised while wearing a dress, especially if he is still getting used to it.
Measure clothes for your dog by first measuring your dog's neck girth, chest girth, and topline/back measurement. Next, measure the neck circumference by positioning a tape measure around your dog's neck right where he would wear a collar, remembering to leave it loose enough that you can fit two fingers under the tape. Next, do the same thing around the most significant part of the chest, usually right behind the front legs, using the two-finger rule. The top line measurement is the length from the base of the neck to where the tail begins. Always size up if your dog is between sizes, and ensure any clothing is neither too tight nor too loose.
Some dogs need clothes to stay warm in cooler temperatures, especially if they are older, ailing, or have a thinner coat. Other dogs may have thicker coats that are well-suited to colder climates. Keep an eye on your dog for signs of cold, and talk to your vet about appropriate measures during challenging weather activities.
Some dogs experience discomfort while wearing clothing, while others do not react; whether your dog will tolerate clothing while sleeping will depend on your pup's unique personality.
If your pet is uncomfortable in clothing, it is best to leave the dress off. Ensure clothing does not limit movement and that your pup can perform routine daily activities.
The best size and shape dog crate for crate training is one that fits your dog comfortably, with enough room for them to stand up, turn around, and lay down.
Some of the most important tools for dog training are training leashes and collars, dog treat bags, dog calming aids, dog training bells, and obedience training aids.
The best leash for obedience training is one that fits well and offers control, such as a 6-foot leather or nylon leash. A retractable leash is not recommended as it can decrease control during training.
Treats that are high-value, soft and small are great for dog training. Brands like Zuke's and Armitage make great training treats.
Yes, dog calming aids such as pheromone sprays and calming collars can help reduce anxiety in dogs, especially when introduced to new environments.
Potty training aids include soft chews, repellent sprays, and dog doorbells. These aids help with preventing eating waste and marking, as well as communicating potty needs.
No, not all dog treats are safe for all dogs. Certain ingredients may be harmful to dogs with food allergies or sensitivities. Always read the label and consult with a veterinarian before introducing a new treat to your dog's diet.
The best dog treats fit your dog's habits, size, and particular needs, so consider the many options before choosing. Dogs that wolf down treats may benefit from longer-lasting chews, while those with special dietary needs should get treats made with allergies and intolerances in mind.
Healthy dog treats will have a balanced nutritional profile and fewer fillers or empty calories. Brands like Ziwipeak, Great Jacks Oven Baked Treats, and Zuke's are pet parent favorites for healthy treats,
Dog treats can be made of various ingredients such as meat, grain, vegetables, and fruits. Some popular ingredients include chicken, beef, peanut butter, and sweet potatoes.
No, dog treats should not be used as a meal replacement. They are meant to be used as a supplement to a well-balanced diet and should only make up 10% or less of your dog's daily calorie intake.
Just add about a ¼ cup of filtered water to the top of the bowl of kibble to moisten and enhance the flavor of the pet food. Cats often benefit the most from doing this, as they frequently have dehydration issues.
The best dry cat food will have complete and balanced nutrition, minimal fillers and artificial ingredients, and a great taste your cat will love. Our vast selection of premium dry cat food includes all the flavors and brands cats love and a choice of ingredients you can feel good about. Be sure to consult your vet if you're unsure which diet will be best for your cat's needs.
It would be best if you fed your cat roughly the amount of dry cat food indicated on the package for her weight range. Note that the amounts needed to maintain a healthy weight will vary depending on how active she is and individual factors. Your vet can guide nutrition and quantities, too.
Dry food is fine as long as it is complete and balanced. Dry food may be less expensive than canned cat food and may stay fresher longer. However, cats that eat only dry food need to be provided with lots of fresh water, especially if they are prone to developing urinary tract blockages.
Wet food is more expensive and less easy to use but can benefit cats prone to lower urinary tract disease and constipation and overweight. Dry food can be a very efficient way to provide calories in thin cats with food volume limitations and allows for using food puzzles and food toy dispensers.

All of our dry diets are preserved naturally with mixed tocopherols, citric acid, and rosemary extract. Our canned diets are naturally preserved and sterilized during the cooking and canning process.
We select our ingredients based on multiple factors, including the supplier’s compliance with our quality and food safety requirements, consistent availability, and on the nutrients required to meet the dietary needs of the pet.Royal Canin is making strides towards sustainability by attempting to obtain sources of raw materials as close to each manufacturing facility as possible. In some cases, we use international suppliers, because only those suppliers can offer raw materials that comply with our quality and food safety standards.
Royal Canin chooses ingredients because they deliver high-quality nutrients that support our customized pet food formulas. Using chicken by-product meal instead of chicken meal for example will allow Royal Canin to maintain its highly customized nutrient standards while achieving a more secure and sustainable supply.

Wet cat food in a can doesn’t need to be refrigerated until after you open it. Refrigerate any unused portion in a sealed container for later use. Some “fresh” or raw wet cat food formulas come refrigerated or frozen, and those should stay refrigerated—or frozen until needed—in a sealed container at all times. Discard any uneaten, unrefrigerated food after 4 hours to prevent food-borne illness in your pet.
The best wet cat food will be a balanced recipe for your cat’s specific life stage and lifestyle. Look for complete formulas with natural meat ingredients and fewer fillers or artificial ingredients. Your veterinarian should be able to recommend some good options based on your cat’s age, habits, and health history.
Cats don’t need wet cat food daily, but many vets recommend making it an essential part of your cat’s diet. Felines evolved to get hydration from their food rather than from drinking, and wet food can help ensure your cat gets enough water daily. Non-gravy wet foods also tend to be lower in carbohydrates than dry cat foods, so feeding wet food may also help your cat maintain a healthy weight. Talk to your vet about the best nutritional choices for your cat, and feed the right amount of food daily.
Tuna is not nutritionally balanced and should not be fed as a large part of your cat's meal plan. Even giving canned tuna as a treat can lead to health issues, especially if it is given in large amounts or frequently. To ensure your feline friend gets the balanced nutrition they need without extra calories or toxic metals, choose a healthy cat food that uses tuna to meet their nutritional needs still and satisfies their taste buds.
