  2. How to Halloween

    TRICK OR TREAT —OR JUST RETREAT? HERE’S HOW TO HALLOWEEN WITH PETS.

    Like the grumpy guy in your office who opts out of the costume contest every year, not all pets are down for Halloween. Some are game to dress up as the Robin to your Batman and hit the town. And for some, it’s their own personal nightmare. What’s right for yours?

    HAUNTING THE STREETS

    Let’s get real. Halloween means large crowds, and lots of exposure to kids of all ages as well as other pets. Will your pet be comfortable with all that? If that’s a definite yes, here’s our Halloween night out checklist.

    Do a test run at home
    Dress up, put on a mask, play some spooky noises. If they don’t react well, time to reconsider.

    Improve those leash skills
    Find the right leash and collar, practice retractable leash safety and even take a training class.

    Make sure their costume is comfy
    Try it on in advance to see if your

  3. New: Wildsaint

    Your dog isn't always an angel. But at least it can look like one.

    THE WILDSAINT STORY

    Dogs want to be good, but the mud puddle outside still calls to them—not to mention that intriguing garbage can full of goodies. So Wildsaint created a product line that lets pets give in to the dirt-covered devil on their shoulder but still look heavenly on your couch.

    GROOMING PRODUCTS AND INGREDIENTS

    Wildsaint has products for everything from nose to tail. And unlike most dog grooming lines, Wildsaint uses ingredients you'll actually recognize that are all-natural, USDA certified organic and USA sourced.

    Check out its key organic ingredients below:

    • Vitamin E +
    • Green Tea Extract - Reduces inflammation and swelling
    • Calendula + Aloe - Moisturizes, reduces infection, relieves itchiness, heals skin irritation
    • Shea butter - Hydrates skin and relieves itchiness
    • Sweet Orange Oil - Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory

  4. Make a purchase. Make a difference.

    KEEP THEM ALL WARM

    We can't all adopt another pet, but we can all work together to bring health and comfort to pets waiting a forever home.

    When you buy any regular priced apparel in stores this month, we’ll donate another coat, jacket or apparel item to a local rescue.

    MORE THAN COMFORT

    Like a Thundershirt, a sweater or jacket can act like a consistent hug and help ease stress and anxiety. Similar to swadling a baby, having something close can offer comfort, especially during transitions.

    Donations will be made from selected stock of merchandise and donated by the store to their local rescue. Good while supplies last.

  5. Too Stressed Out for the Sidewalk?

    Being a dog in the city isn’t easy. In fact, it can be so stressful that it inspired New York’s first members-only indoor dog park, The Barker NYC. Here, founder Brittany O’Steen has created a peaceful doggie haven where pets can run off-leash through green space and natural elements, worry-free. We chatted with O’Steen to get her insight on city dog parenting and what gear is a must.

    TAKE CARE OF YOUR PET'S MENTAL HEALTH

    "The biggest adjustment for dogs that are new to the city is adapting to the overstimulation; smells, sounds, foot and vehicle traffic, etc. For dogs who are experiencing anxiety, it's best for owners to keep their walking routes familiar, shorter in distance and more frequent until they grow accustomed to their surroundings. We found a cadence of routine and exercise that wor

  8. WHEN YOU DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY, IT SHOWS

    WHEN YOU DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY, IT SHOWS

    The Product

    A fun, modern brand of dry dog food on a mission to shake things up. It has everything a quality kibble should—real meat protein as the first ingredient, all-natural ingredients—but no grain, corn, wheat, soy or by-products. It’s even made in the Midwest with ingredients primarily sourced from the U.S (the rest are all from trusted countries as well).

    Why We Love It

    Roosevelt is transparent about their ingredients. It’s the first thing you’ll notice (once you get over how cool the bag looks). Right in front, it lists what they do and don’t use, which is a lot easier than having to scan and analyze the ingredient list. And while some brands just list “protein” without telling you how much comes

  9. ASIDE FROM NEVER OFFERING TO DRIVE, THEY’RE THE BEST ROAD TRIP BUDDY EVER

    Here’s everything you need to keep your pet happy on the road.

    Who wants to go for a ride? DOGS. Road trips are clearly the winner when it comes to pet travel.

    There are lots of chances for your pet to explore, sniff new stuff, maybe mark some territory three states away, and even experience things for the first time, which is magical.

    But when it’s time to pack, don’t forget to grab a suitcase for your pet. They’re going to need everything on the road that they need at home since you’ll want to keep their routine as stable as possible (that includes trying to keep them on their usual food and sleep schedule too). That’s why we’ve put
