Welcome to BestPetGuides.com, my one-stop site for information on a range of different products and pet-related themes. Some people will talk about toys, other focus purely on pet training and other like to look at food. Here I want to bring many elements of the pet ownership experience together to help you with all kinds of issues and purchasing dilemmas.
The market for pet products is broad, with many individual niches within, and is continually expanding into new areas. There is always someone else that thinks that they have a better approach to a problem, or a product that owners and pets will prefer thanks to some new unique selling points. This is great in theory but, like me, you are sure to have noticed a problem – there is almost too much out there! We are spoiled for choice in pet products, no matter what we need. I have found that I can waste valuable time comparing ideas and products without finding the ideal option. This is why I want to help. I want to make things easier for pet owners like me that are struggling with all kinds of consumer issues and pet-based needs.
What Makes My Site Different?
The main aim here is not to simply go on about personal experiences of pet ownership and the trials and tribulations that come with it. Let’s be honest, there are more than enough people already doing so in their personal blog, or rather their pet’s personal blog. Here I want to go a little deeper into some of the issues of pet ownership and share some tips and product suggestions that I feel could help. That is why you will see a few different types of articles here, and plenty of different products. This isn’t my attempt to guide you towards a certain brand or model, but rather to open your eyes to different solutions that may be available and to compare options. While there are affiliate links in operation, there is still an aim here to broaden options and provide choice.
Here you will find my broader buying guides, where different models of a certain type or theme are compared to help you find a solution. There are also accompanying reviews of some of the products features that go a little further in depth on the purpose and features. Finally, there are the additional articles that look at important questions and issues that we face. For example, in the pet travel section there is a broader guide to chew-proof crates, a series of individual product reviews and informational articles on considerations when flying with a dog.
What do I cover here?
At the moment, there are plans to cover a vast range of subjects and products that all responsible pet owners need to consider. They are as follows: pet travel, pet grooming, pet food, pet training, litter and housebreaking, pet beds and furniture and pet toys.
Traveling with pets isn’t always the most straight forward of adventure. Whether we want to take them on a long haul flight, or simply across town to the groomers, we need to be sure that they have a carrier or crate that is perfect for the ride. There is no one-size-fit-all approach to pet travel here, and any brand that claims otherwise should be avoided at all costs. Instead, you need to really consider the rules of the airline, the needs of the animal during transit and other simple factors like their size and the ease of use of the crate. The pet travel section will provide information, guides and reviews to point you in the right direction for your journey together.
On the subject of grooming, not all of us want to have to take our cats and dogs to see the groomer on a regular basis. Not only can it be a hassle in terms of travel, there are the costs involved too. Yes, a professional cut looks great on our pets if they have that sort of coat – or you want to show them – but there are alternatives. If, like me, you fancy taking on the job yourself, or simply want to be able to clip some tangles here and there, you need the best pet grooming products. This pet grooming section will provide information, guide and reviews on different models from the high-end to the more first-timer friendly.
The issue of pet food can be something of a minefield when we start looking for the best information on the best products. Every dog owner seems to think that they have the best solutions, supplementation tips and recipes for different breeds. It can all get a little confusing. Because there are so many options out there, it is important that we have all the best information on hand to make an informed choice. There are some brands of food that are more everyday with the basic ingredient and others that are specialist options fortified with all kinds of goodies, or raw ingredients. This pet food section will provide information, guides and reviews on a range of ideas and approach to help you provide the best diet for your cat or dog.
We all know that the earlier we begin to train our pets, the faster they learn and become obedient, social members of the family/pack. In an ideal world, we would find that every pup picks up their basic commands and housebreaking regimes with no fuss at all. In reality, each dog learns in a different way and so need a little more help than others. That is why it is important to find the best training products to suit your dog’s abilities and needs. This pet training section will provide information, guides and reviews on a variety of options to help you stay on course to good behavior and a strong relationship.
Litter and Housebreaking
Speaking of housebreaking and this form of training, there is is a whole series of niche products and solutions available that are tailored to this situation. Again, I am sure that you will find that your pup has its own way of doing things and its own quirks, so one product or guide may not be quite right. It is all about finding the pads, training tricks and deterrents that work with your pet for the positive reinforcement and consistency that they need. Then there are all the cats that need the perfect space to go to the toilet within the home, either with a cat tray, automated box or even their own toilet. This pet litter and house breaking section will provide information, guides and reviews on different options to help your pet go where they need to with peace and security.
Every pet deserves their own pet bed where they can get comfy, curl up and sleep off the day’s adventures, ready for the next one. Our pets come in all shapes and sizes, with different needs when it comes to comfort, health and other features. Then there are us owners that want to make sure that this pet furniture match our own. I know I picked the color of mine to match the room, not my color-blind dog’s tastes. With so many brands and styles to choose from, it can be difficult to find the best. It is almost as hard as mattress shopping for a human! This pet beds and furniture section will provide information, guides and reviews on all kinds of beds and sofas to help your pet get the best night’s sleep possible.
Finally, I have a section all about toys. The items above may seem more necessary to some, but all pets need plenty of toys to play with. There are toys for physical activity, toys for mental activity to keep the brainier breeds sharp, toys to stave off boredom and toys that are comfort items. It helps to find the best toy for the right purpose, and one that you pet will love until its completely worn out. There are plenty of different styles, materials and functions to choose from. This pet toys section will provide information, guides and reviews on different types of toys to help you narrow down the choices and keep your cat or dog happy.
I hope you will find all the information on this guide to be helpful in your quest to find the very best products for your pets. Take the time to browse the comparisons and learn more about the products on offer. Hopefully they will lead you to the solution you are after, or perhaps something you had never even considered before. In the end, it is all about making life easier, healthier and more enjoyable for our furry friends.
