3 DIY Tips To Look After Your Pet On A Hot Summer’s Day

posted by The Daily Fluff January 2, 2018 0 comments

The summer heat can be pretty uncomfortable for humans. But think how much more uncomfortable it is for our furry little friends. They are sweltering under all that fur and hair, so it is very easy for them to become over heated and dehydrated. That’s where you come in!

If you are struggling to come up with ways to keep your pet cool, that’s not a problem! Here are some creative ways you can keep your pet cool over the summer!

  1. Water Park:

Your dog (or fearless feline) will love splashing around your back yard in their very own water park! Simply visit your local store and purchase a kid-sized pool to fill water in. Your pet will run around like a maniac without feeling worn out! Even if they don’t like water much, you can splash water on them to help them cool down. Or if you prefer, grab out your hose and give them a nice, relaxing shower. If you have a sprinkler, pull it out and connect it up so that your crazy caper can run around through the water!

  1. Ice Treats:

This easy, fun and, yes, even yummy idea will have your pet rolling over with delight! Nice, cold ice treats are great for being so effective and you can use them again and again! There are plenty of ways you can give ice treats to your pet. Grab some small ice blocks out of your fridge and scatter them across the floor. Your pet will love chasing them around the house while keeping them cool at the same time. If your pet loves sweet treats, look up the many easy-to-follow recipes online, from fruit flavoured snacks to doggie ice-cream!

  1. Give Them Shade:

If your pet likes to be outside, whether they run around or have a nice nap, then they will definitely get hot quick. Shade will not only help them stay out of the blistering sun and becoming overheated, but they’ll be protected from hot concrete that can damage their paws. If you have an outdoor umbrella, pop it up and have your pet sprawl out underneath with a chilled bowl of water. If you don’t have an outdoor umbrella, pop up some smaller ones and place them on the ground or in flower pots so your pet can be protected wherever they go. Or you can pop up a tent and your pet can go on camping without leaving their back yard!

These DIY methods are so easy to follow that you won’t have to worry about your pet being overheated. They will be the coolest pet around!

8 Signs Your Pet Loves You

posted by The Daily Fluff December 31, 2017 0 comments

Ever wonder what your pet really thinks about you or if they are just using you for food? We pour so much love into our four-legged best friend. While they can’t say ‘I love you’ there are other, sometimes bizarre, ways in which they show their affection.

In preparation for Valentine’s Day here is a list of the many ways our pets show their love:

  1. They bring you ‘presents’:

Although not what you’d normally put on your wish list, it is always the thought that counts. Cats are natural predators, so in leaving the odd dead mouse or bird for you, they are either teaching you how to hunt or showing off their abilities. Either way it’s a loving gesture.

Dog’s bred for hunting will do this as well as it also shows they are a top dog!

  1. Snuggles:

If your dog likes to sleep in your bed and cuddle with you then it is a big sign that they like you. Especially after feeding time or in the morning when their motives aren’t food related.

Cats like warm and safe places to sleep, that is mostly your lap and sometimes, for inexplicable reasons, your head.

  1. Tail wagging:

Body language is an excellent way of reading your pet’s mood. When a dog is wagging their tail or their ears are lifted it is safe to say your pup is happy that you are around.

The tail is also a useful tool for reading cats. The word is if a cat’s tail is up and twitches a little that cat is sending off friendly vibes.

  1. Hanging out and following you:

If you’ve ever wondered why your pet follows you around the house or waits for you outside the bathroom, it’s simply because they enjoy your company. Dogs are pack animals and love being around family.

While cats are notoriously independent they are not above seeking company as well.

  1. Eye contact and kitty winks:

Did you know that when your cute kitty winks at you or squints they are saying ‘you’re alright?!’ It’s like a stamp of approval that shows that they trust you.

Dogs are less complicated. Sometimes all you need to do is make brief eye contact with a pooch and they are bounding over to you with a goofy look on their face.

  1. Showing their belly:

When cats show their belly to you it is a sign that they trust you. If you’ve ever had a cat scratch you when giving their tum a little rub they say it’s because it’s a breach of their trust.

On the other hand, most dogs love having their belly scratched. A dog rolls over as a sign of trust as well, but they may just want to scratch a place they can’t reach.

  1. Playing:

Playing catch or tug-of-war with your pup is a good way to strengthen your bond. There’s no harm in a bit of roughhousing as well if it doesn’t go too far. It shows that your dog likes having fun with you!

But it’s not just dogs! Cat’s love playing with their owners as well! A curled tail usually means they are in a playful mood so it’s time to bring out the toys!

  1. The big welcome home:

It’s one of the more obvious signs when you come home and your furry best friend is nearly knocking over furniture in their excitement to see you. They may spring down the hall, rub against your legs, and then pretend they never cared you left.

Top 5 Tips For Having Pets In The Workplace

posted by The Daily Fluff December 7, 2017 0 comments

Thinking about allowing pets in the workplace? Wanting to bring your furry friend to work? It’s actually not a bad idea. Did you know that having pets in the workplace is beneficial for both owner and pet? Not only does it reduce stress levels amongst employees and increases happiness and morale, but it also allows pets to be happier too.

They’ll be with their best friend instead of waiting for them alone at home. But before you can consider bringing pets to work, there are a few things that need to be considered so that it’s a safe and happy environment.

Here are a few tips to know for having pets in the workplace:

  1. Is it legal?

While the boss may be okay with having pets in the workplace, it is important to know if they’re allowed in the building. Not only can they be considered to be a workplace hazard, but there also could be some legal troubles if anything serious were to happen. If they’re brought in when they’re not allowed, who knows how much trouble everyone will be in? That’s why before you even consider bringing them in, you need to check with building management first. It is also important for all employees who bring a pet to sign a waiver form so that it removes liability from the company. Once the forms are signed, print out a certificate to show which pets have approval.

  1. Get the Office Involved:

Having pets in the office should be beneficial for everyone, including those who don’t own them. Get the whole office together and make sure that everyone’s okay with little ones running about. If anyone has any allergies, the pets will need stay away from them and potentially be kept in their owner’s office. There also needs to be a limit as to how many pets are allowed each day. If everyone brought their pet, it would be chaos! Create a calendar so that everyone can schedule which days they bring their pet. Don’t worry: every little one will get a turn.

  1. Make Sure Pets Are Trained:

You can’t just have pets running around the office. Not only will they create a mess, but it could turn into disaster if they get in someone’s way. That’s why pets need to be trained before they are allowed at work. They not only need to respond to simple commands, but they also need to be well socialized so that they don’t be aggressive with other pets or employees. You also need to make sure they’re not shy and uncomfortable. They should be happy as well as you.

  1. Have a Safe Environment:

A safe workspace is important for having pets in it. It needs to be big enough so they have plenty of space to walk around in, and that they don’t get in the way of anyone else. It also needs to be clean so that pets don’t accidently eat something or step on something sharp. If you’re bringing a pet, be a good sport and clean up after yourselves. If you have computers or any other electronic device, make sure the floors and walls are clear of wires. This will ensure that cheeky ones don’t chew on them, and that they don’t trip over or become caught.

  1. Does Your Pet Need a Sickie?

Employees should stay home if they’re sick so they don’t spread germs at work. The same goes for pets. Before you can bring them in, take them to the Vet to make sure they’re healthy and sick free. They can’t be spreading germs to any other pets! Also, make sure they have the necessary vaccinations so they’re not likely to catch any illnesses. They may not like getting a shot, but the sooner it’s over and done with, the sooner they can come to work and make everybody happy!

Coming to work won’t be such a downer once you have cute little animals to keep you company. Who knows? Maybe your pet will be employee of the month!

5 Reasons Why Birds Make Good Pets

posted by The Daily Fluff August 22, 2017 0 comments

Have you thought about getting a pet but think a dog or cat might not be right for you? Or maybe you want a non-traditional pet that can bring you a world of joy.

We’ve got the best pet for you! Read on below for 5 reasons why birds make great pets.

  1. They are fairly low maintenance

Birds are a good option for those who want to enrich their lives with a pet but are either slightly time poor or don’t want the high-maintenance cats and dogs bring with the need for a lot of attention, exercise, and training. Birds on the other hand, require far less training, unless you want to teach them cool tricks! They are much easier to clean up after as they are self-grooming creatures and their mess tends to be isolated to their cage.

  1. They are highly intelligent

Birds are very smart and curious creatures. They have the capability to learn many new things, such as learning to mimic human speech and behaviours or using objects as tools. This makes them very intriguing and fun pets to watch and play with, especially with their human like antics!

  1. Birds are perfect for small places

If you live in a small house or an apartment a bird is the perfect pet for these spaces. Whereas cats and dogs require a lot of room to run around, birds are quite happy with only a few metres of space for their cage.

  1. They are very social

Birds are considered to be very social creatures as can be heard with their constant chirping and chattering. This makes them fun to interact and talk with, especially if you have trained your bird to speak or it has started mimicking human voices. Either way they are the perfect companion to talk to and get your thoughts off your chest without fear of judgment.

  1. Life long companion

Did you know that some species of birds can live up to 50 years? That truly makes some birds life long companions. However, although some birds can live up to 50 years many have a lifespan of up to 20 years, which is still quite a long time. So whatever breed you choose be prepared for a long and happy life together.

Don’t let us do all the talking! If you have a bird tell us how they have brightened up your life in the comments below.

6 Life Hacks For Being A Happy Cat Owner

posted by The Daily Fluff April 19, 2017 0 comments

Having a cat to shower with affection is ‘the dream’ for most of us cat lovers (calling all #crazycatladies!) They become a part of your family and a lot of the time they think they are one of us.

However, as cat owners we know that life with a cat isn’t always smooth sailing. Some cats can be a little on the moody side, and love to get their own way!

Need some hacks to be a happy cat owner? Here are some tips:

  1. Invest in rubber gloves! This is the best way to get rid of cat hair and as you would know it gets EVERYWHERE. Haven’t we all been avoiding wearing black for this reason?! Rubber gloves can be used to strip hair from your clothes and furniture and they are super cost effective, which is a win win for everyone!
  2. Change the bowl to a plate. This is for all the picky eaters out there! We’ve all had a cat that just won’t eat their food! Here at the Daily Fluff,  we’ve found that some cats just don’t like their bowl especially if it is limiting their whisker space! So why not try a flat dish and you may be pleasantly surprised.
  3. Keep their paws away from the cords. Does your cat love to chew on power cords too? It’s not only dangerous but it is also damaging. Get some rubber tubing to protect exposed cords and in turn protect your cat.
  4. You don’t need the 4 tiered cat post. While it’s no secret that cats do like these because they like to climb and be elevated, you don’t need to spend a lot of money to make them happy. Get creative at home and make your own cat post. A bookshelf or stacked boxes will surely do the trick!
  5. Use a bath mat. Stop the unwanted litter spreading throughout the house by keeping your cat’s litterbox in one designated area in your home. Another great tip is to have a bath mat next to their litter box to stop the mess from spreading!
  6. Build a cubby house. Cats love to play and for them, that usually means climbing or hiding. Create little hiding nooks for them throughout the house so they can have all the fun they could ever need! These could be made with some shirts or towels. You’ll be surprised how quickly it will become their new nap spot.

We hope this helps you overcome some of the stresses of being a cat owner! Which hacks are you going to try? Comment below and let us know.

10 Fun Facts About Rabbits

posted by The Daily Fluff April 4, 2017 0 comments

When someone says Easter, what comes to your mind? Chocolate, eggs, and of course, bunnies! Rabbits are one of the cutest pets to have around. With their twitching noses and fluffy ears, it’s impossible not to fall in love with them! In keeping with the Easter theme, we’ve decided to pay tribute to our favourite fluffy hoppers and come up with a list fun facts about rabbits!

  1. Rabbits or Bunnies?

Rabbits and bunnies are the same animal. There is no difference except your preference of name! However, they are different to hares, who are larger, have longer ears and are typically less social.

  1. Litters of Litters:

It is pretty well known that rabbits have large litters. They can start producing from the age of one, with litter sizes ranging anywhere from one to sixteen. But another fun fact is that they can have multiple litters in one year. Rabbits are only pregnant for about a month and they can be impregnated right after giving birth! That’s a lot of babies!

  1. A Green Diet:

Rabbits are herbivores, eating only plants, grass and weeds. A healthy diet for a rabbit includes plenty of fresh green vegetables and grass. Some treats can include fruit, carrots and sultanas. Rabbits are also fast eaters. They can chew up to 120 times a minute!

  1. My Dear Rabbit:

A male rabbit is called a buck and a female rabbit is called a doe. Yep, that’s right. Just like deers!

  1. I’m a Morning Person:

Rabbits are crepuscular, which means that they are most active in the early morning and night. If you’re an early riser, then rabbits are the pets for you!

  1. Beauty Bunny:

Rabbits are very good at grooming themselves and their partners. They have cleaning sessions around five times a day. That will save a lot of money, time and water!

  1. Home Sweet Home:

Wild rabbits live in underground holes called burrows, and a group of burrows are called warrens. Warrens can be built as deep as 3 meters, and they have multiple entrances for quick escapes. Now that’s home improvement!

  1. Tooth Sweet:

Rabbits are known for their cute little front teeth, but those aren’t the only ones they’ve got. Rabbits have a total of 28 teeth, and their teeth never stop growing. It’s perfect for all that chewing!

  1. Bunny with Brains:

Domesticated rabbits can easily be trained. They can quickly learn how to use a litter tray, as they have very good memories. This means they can remember where everything is in their territory. And we can’t even remember where we left our keys!

  1. Hippity Hop:

Rabbits are very playful. They love playing with their toys and can be taught to play fetch. Whenever they’re happy, rabbits jump in the air with joy, flicking their feet and head. This adorable motion is called a binky!

These fun facts about rabbits are great to know if you’re a bunny enthusiast. Keep them in your pocket to wow everyone at your Easter party!

How To Look After Your Pet This Easter

posted by The Daily Fluff March 20, 2017 0 comments

With the Easter Bunny nearly here, you’re probably looking forward to celebrating the holidays with your friends and family and eating all that delicious chocolate. However, it is important not to forget about your pet during the Easter weekend. Chocolate is a huge no-no for any furry creature. If your fur baby eats just a little bit, they’re at great risk of toxic poisoning. But don’t freak out. You can still enjoy your Easter plans and keep your pet healthy and happy at the same time.

Just follow our guide to keeping your pet safe during the Easter break:

  1. The Easter Egg Hunt:

If you’re hosting a party that involves a good old Easter egg hunt, there are a few things you’ll need to make sure of. When purchasing and hiding the chocolate, it’s a good idea to keep tally of how many you’ve bought and hidden. That way you’ll know if your pet has gobbled one up by mistake. During the hunt, it is also best to keep your pet away from the hunting area. Keep them indoors or in a secluded area if the hunt is inside. Kids will need to be strictly watched over as they’re more likely to leave chocolates lying about, or offer one to your pet. Don’t worry; kids tend to gobble them up straight away. If you’re attending a party and you’re bringing your pooch along, consult with the host about suitable arrangements. Keep a watchful eye on your pup. Dogs tend to eat anything without thinking twice, after all.

  1. Planning the Party:

Chocolate isn’t the only goodie that is toxic to animals, as lollies and sugary foods can cause diabetes in pets. When organising the food for the party, supply them somewhere your pet can’t access. A suitable option for serving food is to give out bowls instead of plates so treats are less likely to fall on the floor. If you’re supplying alcohol, make sure that your pet steers clear of it too. If you have a dog, take them for a walk prior to the party so they’re worn out by the time people arrive. This will make it easier to watch over so they’re less likely to run off and eat something they shouldn’t. When decorating the house, avoid leaving out items that could be a hazard, such as small plastic items or traditional Easter flowers. A fun and safe way you can decorate is to use paper. From origami bunnies to paper grass, paper is less likely to be unsafely digested by pets should they eat it.

  1. Treats For Your Pets:

Just because they can’t eat chocolate doesn’t mean your pet should miss out on some yummy treats! There are plenty of easy-to-follow recipes online for pet-friendly treats. Your pet will be in food heaven when they’re filling their bellies with edible cupcakes, biscuits and ice cream! If you’re no Nigella Lawson, visit one of the many pet friendly cafes around that will supply you with takeaway nibbles. This is a great way for your pet to be distracted while everyone enjoys their chocolate. No living creature shall be left unfed this Easter season!

  1. An Emergency Situation:

If your pet does happen to eat some chocolate, the first thing to do is to stay calm. When your pet eats chocolate, it is not immediately noticeable. If you think your pet is acting strange or distressed, call your local emergency vet straight away. Follow their advice and take your pet down there if need be. It is also advisable to know your pet’s breed, age and weight so your vet can give you the best advice possible.

You and your pet shouldn’t have to miss out on all the Easter festivities with our tips. And yes, it is still okay for your pooch to wear some Easter bunny ears. Have your phone ready for some cute Instagram photos!

Top Reasons Why Pets Are Great For Every Family

posted by The Daily Fluff March 14, 2017 0 comments

Can we have a pet? Can we have a pet? Can we have a pet?” If this sounds familiar to you, then you know how much your kids want a furry little friend in the household. If you haven’t caved in yet, don’t feel guilty. It is completely natural to have concerns about bringing a pet into a home with kids. However, there are many ways your kids can benefit from owning a pet.

Every family will be better off with a fur baby in their lives, and we’re here to explain why. 

  1. Responsibility:

This is the most commonly known benefit of having a pet, but we’ll illustrate it for you anyway. Owning a pet is a great way to teach your kids a little bit about responsibility. By having them help out with the feeding, cleaning and general wellbeing of your pet, your kids will learn about some important values that they will need in life. If you encourage them to do some chores, your kids will be more kind, helpful and assertive. They may even offer to help out without even asking! The best thing is that they will most definitely be rewarded for it. Your pet will be well taken care of, which will allow them to live a long and happy life!

  1. Physical Health:

It is no secret that kids are more likely to be fit if they own a pooch. There are many studies showing that children with pets exercise more than those who don’t. Simply having them play with your dog at your local park will get your kids more excited about getting in some regular exercise. But did you know that owning a pet could also increase your children’s immunity to illnesses? Studies have shown that kids who are exposed to pets in their early years have less ear infections and respiratory illnesses than those who don’t. It’s almost as if your pet is your children’s guardian angel!

  1. Social Skills:

You know those moments when your kids see an animal on the street and they immediately run up and give them a pat? Well, this can actually prove to be worthwhile! When your child plays with a pet, whether it’s their own or with one they come across, they learn how to approach them without fear and with ease. This can be transferred to developing social skills, which can make it easier for your kids to make new friends! Pets can also help with interacting with friends. Kids are more likely to be compassionate and nurturing when they have a pet, which can help them with engaging with friends if they’re shy or socially awkward.

  1. Mental Health:

You know how much your child’s face lights up whenever they see a pet, but the benefits are so much deeper than that. Kids who own a pet have higher self-esteem than those who don’t. Your pet will love your child unconditionally. This will allow your child to be who they are without any judgement, and they can express their true feelings and not bottle them up. This can go a long way, with your kids being more likely to develop academic, physical and social skills without fear of being ridiculed. No matter what, your pet will always be there for your child when they’re feeling blue, or if they just need someone to talk to.

A pet is the friend your child will always cherish. You can live your life easily knowing your child is healthier and happier because of their new best friend!

Our friend Lenny agrees,

I think pets are great for every family as they can help to bring a smile to your face, especially after a hard day. I can always tell when mum or dad have had a bad day however they are able to come home and I am always able to make them smile by giving them lots of hugs and kisses!

Apartment Living with Pets: What You Need to Know

posted by The Daily Fluff February 17, 2017 0 comments

Ready for your happily ever after but missing a very important companion in your home? Us Melburnians sure love our pets but unfortunately, it’s very common to hear people say “I really want a pet BUT I live in an apartment!” Well, we have some good news for you! There are many pets that are suited to apartment living but there are some specifics you do need to consider before taking the dive.

Which level will you live on? 

We have found the lower levels much more convenient as your closer to the outside. If you are planning on getting a puppy, toilet training can be very challenging and will require lots of trips outside to begin with. The ground or 1st floor makes this a lot easier.

Choose your animal and breed carefully:

High energy dogs such as Labradors and Border Collies may really struggle to live in a confined space. This can result in them acting out and chewing things they shouldn’t or damaging furniture.

Size: 

A larger animal may just not be ideal in an apartment; remember pups do grow! Make sure you research your breed and the expected size once it is fully grown.

Exercise:

Plenty of it is key. It allows your pet to burn energy so they aren’t restless or agitated at home. If you’re time poor you should consider a dog walker or doggie daycare to help with this.

Time:

You need to be prepared to set aside time every day for your pet, whether that be time for walking, playing or just doting them with attention. Providing your pets with a daily routine and attention can minimise your pet misbehaving as it’s usually a call for attention.

Neighbours: 

Be aware of how close your neighbours are and how well the apartment blocks out noise before getting a pet. If you happen to have a dog who’s a barker, consult your Vet on ways to minimise barking and correct behaviour.

Our Tips:

  • Bring the outside in: Plants can make your pet feel more at ease in an apartment setting.
  • Cats, rabbits and guinea pigs are ideal for apartment living –  they are quiet and can be toilet trained more easily.
  • Communicate with your landlord: Your landlord may have specific requirements or restrictions when it comes to pets. This may also include a pet deposit to cover possible damage or cleaning costs when vacating.
  • Vaccinations: It is really important to keep up their worming and vaccinations as apartments often have shared yards and facilities so you need to make sure your pet can’t infect anyone else using these areas. If you have a dog and it was to bite someone, having vaccination records is vital.

We hope this can assist you in making the right decision in choosing a pet for you and your living situation. If you have the ideal pet for your apartment we would love for you to share with us in the comments below!
