Other Pets

Are you ready for a pet? Of course you are! There is a pet to suit you, whether it is a colourful fish or a docile rabbit. It is important when considering what sort of pet will suit you to think about the amount of time you can spend with your pet, the level of exercise you will be able to provide, the type of accommodation you have and your budget.

   The best pets are those that make great companions. There are many different types of pets that can make the perfect pet. Your pet choice should be based on what sort of animal suits your personality and works best with your lifestyle needs.

   Finding the best pets can be a fun and rewarding experience. Through the years, hundreds of people have told me about how they came to own their perfect pet, and how it has changed their lives for the better. They speak of their pets as if they were members of the family – and for all intents and purposes, they truly are.

   Some types of pets are better suited to people living in small apartments while other types of pets do best on very large properties where they have lots of room to exercise. It is also important to realize that not all types of pets may be right for you. We’ll help walk you through the questions to ask when choosing a pet and show you all the different types. Your answers will help you narrow down to make the perfect pet choice.

   Whether it’s a common pet such as a goldfish or a dog, a colorful and talkative parrot, a scurrying lizard or a fun-loving potbellied pig, the best pets can bring you years of entertainment and happiness.So get together with your family and decide what is best for you.You will get plenty of pleasure and joy from your new friend.

Dog-Naming Tips

One of the most enjoyable parts of dog ownership is giving your pooch a special name. But once you’ve done that, you also need to take steps to give your dog proper identification, in case he’s lost. Here are extensive details on naming and identifying your dog.

What’s in a Name?

One of the most important ways you communicate with your dog is through her name. When your dog hears her name, she should jump to attention, ready for good times — even if it’s just mealtime. Choosing the right name is a special part of dog ownership, so consider your choices carefully. Here are some things to consider to get you on the right track.

Your dog’s looks. Spot, Blaze, Tiny, or Blackie are all tried and true dog names. The upside is they’re descriptive, making it easier to identify your dog if she gets lost. The downside is there are a lot of other dogs with those names. You might want to be more creative so your dog stands out from the crowd. A tall, leggy dog with a brindle coat — a Greyhound, for instance — might be named Savanna or Tiger, after the flat grasslands of Africa that might have produced an animal with this striped coat pattern.

Your dog’s heritage. Investigating breed history is a great way to find the perfect name. A Scottish breed, such as a West Highland White Terrier, Scottish Terrier, or Cairn Terrier, might be named Murray or Stuart. Safari is a suitable moniker for a Basenji, the barkless breed from Africa. Tundra is a favorite name for Northern breeds like Alaskan Malamutes and Samoyeds.

Your dog’s breed. Beagles, Bloodhounds, and Basset Hounds will follow their noses to the ends of the earth. Sniffer is a good name for one of these dogs, as is Sherlock or Gypsy. Lots of terriers are named Digger, and it’s easy to see why. These dogs were once bred to go after varmints that lived in underground dens, hence their tendency today to excavate their yards.

Your pup’s special traits. Why did you get your pup? If the two of you will be hunting or fishing together, you might go with the name Pal or Amigo. Border Collies are said to be the smartest of all breeds, so consider giving yours a name to match her intellect: Einstein or Newton, for instance.

Your puppy’s registered name. Breeders often give litters a theme or names beginning with the same letter. A litter with a country music theme might have pups named Nashville’s Yoakam, Nashville’s Dolly, Nashville’s Reba, and Nashville’s Waylon. Registered names may include the kennel name or the names of the sire and dam. Thus you might have Cloverhill’s Indian Summer, Craigwood Higgins of Switchbark, or Magnolia’s Prince of Thieves. Although these names appear on the dog’s registration papers, they obviously aren’t good choices to use around the house. The breeder or owner gives the dog a nickname, or call name. Craigwood Higgins of Switchbark probably goes by Woody to his friends.

Your hobbies and special interests. If you’re a sports fan, you have lots of great names to choose from, whether your game is golf, tennis, basketball, football, track and field, or hockey. You might name a fleet-footed Greyhound or Whippet Carl, Jesse, or FloJo. Naming a Boxer is almost too easy: How about Frazier, Ali, or Sugar Ray?

Your favorite books, movies, or television shows. Lots of dogs are named Lassie in honor of the Collie of literary, film, and television fame. But you don’t have to name your pet after another dog in a movie or TV show. Pick the name of any one of your favorite characters for your dog.

Helpful hints. Avoid names that rhyme with the word no, such as Mo, Snow, or Beau. You don’t want to confuse your pup when you’re training her. Avoid long or difficult names. Worcestershire may look impressive, but by the time you get it out of your mouth, your dog’s attention will have long since shifted elsewhere. Finally, make sure the name is one you won’t be embarrassed to call out in front of the neighbors.

Pet Transport Hobart -Tasmania – Pet Travel

This was a sad day for pet taxi!
I am so angry and upset at the same time when are people going to realize a dog is for life.Today I was at Bruny Island and a dilapidated dog that could hardly walk and was so skinny and sad and old looking,I am crying while writing this I feel so much empathy and bloody love for the dog as soon as I took it in my pet taxi I feed her and gave her water she gulped it down poor poor thing.I Rang Brightside and told them I was prepared to take the dog to the vet and pay the bill and if they could take her after the check over.Emma the lady I spoke to said in the most enthusiastic voice of course we will.Wonderful,wonderful person and people who work there.I took the dog who we named girl as she had no name we knew of or a collar,I feel so bloody devastated as they had to put her down,I cried my eyes out just like I am now and I had only known this lovely dog for an hour,How can people dump there dogs because they are old she had a bad injury to her back as if she had been attacked and wondering the streets in that state for how friggen long SHAME ,SHAME,SHAME on you who ever you are for being so bloody insensitive and karma will find you for sure actually I wish it upon you who ever you are!But not only that how many people saw this poor lost soul and turned a blind eye to it shit I am disgusted at the thought of it.The dog had a deteriorating leg trauma wounds to it’s back it was so thin and even it’s hair was so coarse from the shit it had gone through.I feel like I have lost my best friend and these people that probably owned this dog 14 years old and then disgaurded her like rubbish How dare they.I feed Girl her last meal with out even knowing it I gave her her last feel of kindness she would ever know in this life time.Now I am am left feeling so empty and God bless the wonderful girl who was in my life but briefly.
