Reduce Your Dog’s Carbon Pawprint

Hi Pet Blog readers, please welcome Adam Holmes with this guest post with some easy ways to reduce your pet’s carbon footprint.

The Real Scoop on Dog PoopAs pet lovers we enjoy buying things and spoiling our pets. Sometimes those extra purchases and items can have a negative impact on Mother Nature. This article is not suggesting that we stop buying dog toys and accessories, but we can take steps to reduce the carbon pawprint of our pets by making responsible and informed choices.

1. Install a Dog Door

Instead of laying down newspapers or potty mats in the laundry room, install a doggie door so your pet can go outside whenever the urge strikes. For safety and security, you may want to install a traditional fence or a wireless dog fence as a great way to keep your dog in your yard.

*Editor’s Note* If you install a wireless fence, make sure that your dog is supervised while he is enjoying the great outdoors. Also note that invisible fences do not keep other pets or animals out of your yard.

2. Biodegradable Poop Bags

We all know that you’re not going to take on poo duty with your bare hands (please don’t) but plastic bags cause a lot of harm to the environment. They are difficult to decompose and if they do they leach harmful substances into the environment. Many pet supply stores have started carrying biodegradable poo bags that come in small dispensers that you can hook onto your leash. Choose these over regular plastic bags and choose paper or reusable grocery bags while you are at the store.

3. Scoop

As unappealing as it is, scoop your dog’s poop as often as possible and always pick it up when you are out and about. When left outside for long periods of time, fecal matter can find its way into sewer systems and water ways and can contaminate the environment. A pooper-scooper can be helpful if you don’t like touching your dogs’ waste.

The New & Improved ThatPetPlace.com!

Good morning, fellow pet lovers!

Screen Shot of thatpetplace.com

Welcome to the new ThatPetPlace.com

Sorry for the long hiatus in pet blog posts. We hope to be back on track with our weekly posts soon. Our team had been busy preparing to launch the new ThatPetPlace.com for the last few months and now that we’re live, we’d like to hear your feedback!

Aside from a totally fresh, new look we’ve added several enhancements to our website. First of all, we’ve got a brand new search. Now when you use the search box you can filter your results by category, price, brand, and more! It should be easier than ever to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Next, we’ve added product reviews. Does your dog or cat have a favorite toy or do we carry a product you just can’t live without (for me, it’s the Classic Kong)? Have you purchased a product that didn’t quite live up to your expectations? We want to hear about it, even if you didn’t purchase it from That Pet Place. We want to hear your opinions on the products we carry and your reviews help other pet owners decide what is best for their pets.

Third, you can now schedule an auto-reorder of your pet supplies with one simple click. This service is for you if you purchase the same items from us on a regular basis. While you are checking out, right before you submit your order find the checkbox above the products that reads “Auto-Reorder”. Once that is checked you can select how often you’d like to receive your shipments. You will continue to receive your shipments until you cancel your re-order program, which you can do from your account on the website.

We have lots of other enhancements, too. We are now offering more payment options, e-gift certificates, and our Article Archive has been updated and improved! Log on to ThatPetPlace.com and check it out. Sound off in the comments and let us know what you think of the new and improved That Fish Place – That Pet Place!
