Whether you’ve just gotten your first pet or are an experienced pet owner, there’s always more to learn. How we think about pets has evolved over the years, from considering them working animals to part of the family. Would you throw a birthday party for your pet? We wouldn’t judge you if you did. Would you cook for your pet? Maybe just make a few treats? We’ve got easy recipes to make something GR8 for your GR8 pet.

Pet Care Tips

Caring for a pet is a big responsibility and a big part of being the best pet parent you can be. Clipping nails, how to brush your dog’s teeth, and natural flea control for dogs and cats are just a few of the pet care tips we have for you. We also cover how to make your pet’s coat shine and how to soothe their itchy skin.

At GR8NESS, we definitely think of pets as part of the family, so we’ll discuss how to travel with your pet on road trips and holidays. Are you worried about your dog’s stress levels or ways to enrich their environment? We cover those topics too.

Training and Behavior Issues

You may love your pet and want others to love them just a much. But if you want to be able to take your dog with you wherever you go, they’ll need some manners. And let’s face it, as much as we love our pets and think they are wonderful, sometimes they have behavior issues such as resource guarding, separation anxiety, or aggression towards other dogs or people. Some of these behaviors are perfectly natural for dogs, but not something we prefer in a pet.

We’ll go over how to teach your pets the skills they need to survive in our world. Dogs are great at learning and eager to please, sometimes it just takes finding the right method. We don’t judge the method but present the best information we have and let you decide. It’s all about the relationship you want to have with your pet.

What about the benefits of brain exercises for your dog or GR8 toys for GR8 puppies? All these things add up to give your dog the best life possible.

Feeding Your Pet

Just as what we eat makes a big difference in our health and wellbeing, so does what your pet eats make a difference in theirs. Your pet depends on you to make the best decisions for them, and we’ll be giving you the best information we can find to help you do that.

Have you considered cooking for your pet, either treats or full meals? Check out our recipes for pets and see if they like your cooking. Do you know what foods your pet shouldn’t eat? Find out what they should stay away from. And we even cover what to avoid, and what to do if your pet should lose weight.

GR8NESS Does Not Replace Veterinary Care

If you are worried that your pet needs medical attention, contact your veterinarian right away. The information on our website is presented to enrich your life and that of your pet and is not meant to diagnose or treat any condition. Only your vet can do that. We have you and your pet’s best interest at heart and wish you both well. Welcome to the GR8NESS pet community, we’re happy you’re here.
