Think you have everything sorted to welcome your new animal friend into your home? Think again. There are new crazes and absolute essentials that you should think about if you want to be part of the elite ‘pack’ of pet owners.
1. A Stylish Carrier
The world of pet carriers is getting stranger by the day, with the carrier for your pooch doubling as a fashion accessory for you and your pet.
You can access a designer bag for your animal; a sling; a bag with a window in it, or even ones that look like prams so that you can be the perfect cat/dog mom. Gone are the days when you could put a pet in a regular cage if you want to look the part.
2. Fancy Pet Food
More pet owners are stepping away from the regular pet food and buying food that they believe to be more elite. Many people have put their dogs or cats onto a vegan or other specialist diet. This is either because they believe it is healthier for the animal or for environmental reasons, but it is widely debated. You can even now access a variety of specially crafted pet food subscription boxes for their normal or special diet, not to mention delivery services, especially for treats.
3. An Interesting Feeding Bowl
Of course, it is not enough to feed our pets their fancy food, and there needs to be a smart contraption involved to get the food. Shoppers love gadgets, and there is no shortage of them on the market today. You can buy automated and timed feeders, which have some use for when you might be out of the house, but there are also interactive feeders.
These clever feeders require the animal to work harder for their food by engaging in a task or repetitive action to access their treat.
4. Best Value Wellness Care
If you want to be respected amongst the high rolling, award-winning pet owners of society, then you need to be able to brag about your amazing wellness plan for your little pal. Thankfully, it is not hard to find an affordable pet vet clinic that offers a tailored plan for your animal. You will be pleased you made the investment if anything ever happens and you need it sorted fast.
5. Special Tricks to Show Off
To deeply commit to the perfect pet owner image, you will need to put in the work to get you and your animal coordinated. Pet owners around the globe are setting spare time aside to spend with their animals in training classes. After not long, you will be able to take your animal through an obstacle course or teach it to sing for adoring fans over social media.
It seems like there are new crazes all the time for pet owners to keep up with, not unlike baby crazes that mums and dads must keep up with. You just need to decide if you want to be in the running for ‘best in show’ or not.
