  • Celebrate Valentine's Day With Your Fur Baby!

    Valentine's Day is right around the corner! Planning your day with your significant other may be fun, but not as fun as the day you could be having with your fur baby. Here are some great pet date ideas so you can let your pet know how much you love them this Valentine's Day! 1) Treat Yourselves What's a better way to share the love than to enjoy some of your favorite treats together? Enjoy a once-in-a-while dessert and stock up on your pet's favorite high-value snack. We all know the best way to someone's heart is their stomach! 2) Go Shopping Take a little time to splurge together by brining your babe to the local pet store. Being able to enjoy an environment with new and enticing smells is always a good time for pets. Just be careful not to break the bank when they give you those puppy-dog eyes! 3) Have a Picnic What's better than a walk in the park? A walk in the park with food at the end! If the weather permits, take your four-legged buddy with you on a walk or hike with a picnic destination in mind. Make sure to pack collapsible dishes and fresh water for your fur kiddo. 4) Spend Quality Time Together Studies show that your fur baby wants your attention more than anything (yes, that includes treats). So even if you don't plan an extravagant day together, your pet will appreciate some quality time all the same. This could mean extra playtime, practicing training and tricks, or just snuggling on the sofa together. Whatever you do, don't let your fur kid spend their Valentine's Day alone! If you've got plans with your human love bugs this Valentine's Day, that doesn't mean your pet can't enjoy some extra special attention. At Fluff, we provide in-home pet care so your fur babies get individual and customized care from our sitters. Meeting your local sitter is free to do and doesn't obligate you to use us.

  • How to be an Eco-friendly Pet Parent

    We're still in the first month of the year...much too early to give up on those New Years Resolutions! For those who decided to be less wasteful this year, you may have already reduced the amount of plastic you use, started recycling, or installed a new shower head. What you may not want to overlook are the few changes you can make with your fur baby to live an even more sustainable lifestyle. Here are a few simple things you can do to get started! Buy Food in Recyclable Packaging Next time you're out of your fur kiddo's food of choice, check the packaging before you buy. There are plenty of brands that sell their food in recyclable packaging. If you can't find food suitable for your fur baby in a completely recyclable package, most brands tend to layer their packaging with plastic but have a paper lining as well. If these layers can be separated, you can recycle the paper and toss the plastic. It's a tiny change, but every little bit helps! DIY Treats Most pet-related waste is from the plastic packaging they come in. Instead of buying pre-packaged treats, make some at home! Look for fun and simple recipes you can make at home. Not the cooking type? That's fine too! Canned vegetables, like green beans and plain pumpkin, make an awesome snack for doggos and they come in recyclable cans! Use Sustainable Litter There's a lot of litter options out there. Some litter choices are chock-full of chemicals and materials that are difficult to produce or negatively affect the environment when thrown away. Instead, you can switch to a sawdust or paper based litter to reduce some of the (stinky) trash your litter makes. If your cat is picky and you can't change litters, check to see if their favorite brand comes in cardboard or recyclable packaging. Purchase Recycled Pet Waste Bags A good poopy bag is an important tool for any pet parent. Sturdy bags made of recycled plastic are easy to find online or in local pet stores. Even better, if you have plastic bags around the house that would wind up in a land-fill anyhow, use those instead! How do We Try to Keep the Environment Clean? At Fluff, we opt to equip our sitters with pet waste bags that come from recycled materials and train sitters to recycle pet food containers whenever possible. We also do our best to assign sitters as close to your home as possible. Not only does this save on gas and emissions, but it also ensures your local sitter is close enough to help out at the drop of a hat. If you want to meet your local sitter to make sure they're a good fit for your fur babes it is free to do and doesn't obligate you to use us. Get your free consultation today!
