Sweet Summer is Approaching!

And that means preparing for vacations! But vacations can be tough to arrange when you have pets in the family. When I go on a vacation, I have to make sure my plans carry accommodations for my dachshund, Charlie, and my chihuahua, Molly. After taking them on several vacations, I have a bit of experience making it work.

Finding pet-friendly hotels can be draining (calling the hotel to see if it is pet-friendly, finding out it isn’t, moving on to the next, etc.), but here’s a tip: It may not be one of the main specifications, but most travel agencies will give you the option to select a pet-friendly hotel. For finding a good boarding kennel for when I want to go somewhere without Charlie and Molly, I typically look at reviews on Yelp to find which places will treat them right (like Glamour Paws does!).

Make sure your pet carrier is airline-approved! I had a nightmare my first time traveling with Molly. I couldn’t just leave her at the airport, or hope to find someone to pet sit before the flight left! I had to reschedule my flight. If you want to be sure your carrier is pet approved, I’d recommend the Sleepypod Air. Dog Fancy and Cat Fancy magazines individually chose Sleepypod Air as a best product one year. Where those magazines meet, you’d wager they’re onto something. Ernie Slone of Dog Fancy wrote, “The breathable mesh makes it comfortable for pets, but also easy to conform to differing airline under-seat storage requirements. The carrier is easy to secure to rolling luggage, and hidden straps also make it a snap to fasten to car seatbelts, adding a measure of safety.”

How To: Happy & Healthy Pup!

We all know that there are some foods that are not good for us, and for the most part we tend to avoid them to ensure we stay healthy. Just like us, there are some things put into dog food that we need to watch out for, and certain dog foods we need to avoid to make sure our puppies stay healthy! Below are some ingredients put into dog food to avoid:

  • Preservatives: Some of the most common preservatives put into dog food include Ethoxyquin and BHT/BHA. These preservatives in particular are linked to the development of cancer, kidney and liver damage, immune deficiencies, and even blindness.
  • Corn and/or Corn Syrup: Corn syrup is often used to sweeten dog food, which is not only unnecessary but very unhealthy for your babies leading to weight gain and diabetes. Additionally, the “corn” put into dog food is not the corn we traditionally eat, rather feed corn  that was not approved for humans to eat and/ or what was leftover from human consumption. Not only is it fattening, but it can mold and even lead to death.
  • Animal Byproduct: Byproducts are the leftover parts of an animal that we do not want to eat. Byproduct has no nutritional value, due to the fact it does not have any “muscle meat”. These meats will sometimes even be contaminated.

Now that we have been educated on the importance of dog food, here are some healthy options to feed your pups!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone! Although Halloween is a wonderful exciting holiday, it can be a scary and even dangerous day for your pups. Here is a few friendly reminders to help you, and your babies stay safe! It is important to keep all candy and treats out of reach of your pets, and keep a close eye on them to ensure they did not sneak into your stash! Of course, puppies deserve treats too, so get them something dog friendly (and healthy!) like the CocoTherapy Coconut Vanilla Flax Maggie Macaroons so they can safely celebrate the festivities with you. Secondly, remember that too many visitors can be stressful for your baby, especially when they are dressed in costumes and unidentifiable. If you notice your dog becoming overwhelmed, take proactive steps to calm them down by placing them in a secluded room, or give them some love and let them know it will all be okay! Finally, it is important to keep all tags and ID’s on dogs, and it is highly recommended to bring your dogs indoors! Once again, the abundance of people, costumes, and even some decorations can overwhelm and stress out your puppy, and the last thing we want is to spend Halloween searching for a lost pup who ran off out of fear!

So, we hope you and your puppies have a wonderful Halloween, and we cannot wait to see how cute they look in their costumes! Be sure to submit your pictures to our Facebook (Glamour Paws), or tag us on Instagram (glamour.paws). If you haven’t gotten a costume, no worries, because our costumes are 50% off on our website now so be sure to check it out!

Until next time!

UV Rays

While summer is a great time for playing in the sun, you also need to take precautions. While you use lotions, hats, and UV protecting clothing, your pups don’t have those luxuries in the backyard. While they might have shade and water, it doesn’t always give them the protection they need. That is why Glamour Paws is now carrying Sun Shield tees. They come in all sizes, a variety of colors, and not only protect 98% of UV rays, but are awesome for covering wounds and reducing allergens too. Protect your pups from the UV rays this summer.
