Ever wonder what your dog does while you’re at work? Eight hours apart from your pet is a long time. Your dog can get lonely, and you can even start to feel guilty.

Whether it’s a plot of land to grow flowers, herbs or produce, a garden brings health and community benefits to any neighborhood.

It’s hard to imagine the unthinkable, but with an increase in natural disasters the unthinkable could become reality. The National Centers for Environmental Information’s (NOAA) overview of 2017 reported 16 separate billion-dollar weather and climate disasters. The 1980-2017 annual average of events is 5.8 whereas the annual average for the most recent 5 years is 11.6 events.
Not only are people’s lives in jeopardy, pet lives could be as well. Natural disasters are just as dangerous to pets as they are to their owners. In honor of National Animal Disaster Preparedness Day on May 8th, here are some tips to ensure the safety of your furry friends during a crisis event.

Whether your park is home to migratory birds, turtles, ducks, deer or even endangered species, it’s important to protect them with proper trash disposal and pet waste pickup so visitors can enjoy their presence without contributing to the degradation of the species.
The cold has left, and now the warm spring weather is upon us. And there’s no better way to enjoy it than by taking your beloved pup to the park to get some exercise and sunshine.

Spring cleaning doesn’t stop at home. Warmer weather means sprucing up parks and grassed areas. After a long, brutal winter, weather-related damage can be a problem—especially in outdoor areas that have trails. Heavy snow can break tree branches, strong winds mixed with snow can wear away signs and particularly busy traffic areas can cause grass damage.
The start of spring brings along a little-known holiday that everyone can enjoy, National Puppy Day. March 23 is a day dedicated to focusing on puppies in need of adoption, as well as celebrating puppies and the joy they bring us. Make sure to show your puppy, and older dogs who still act like puppies, just how much you appreciate them
