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!

4 Tips To Curb Destructive Chewing

posted by The Daily Fluff June 16, 2017 0 comments

Chewing is an important activity for dogs of all ages as it helps maintain a strong jaw, clean teeth and help relieve teething pain in puppies while also combating boredom. However, excessive chewing can be a sign that your dog is experiencing anxiety and frustration or isn’t mentally or physically stimulated enough.

For those of you with a dog who loves to destructively chew, it’s best to minimise exposure to situations that may make your furry-friend feel nervous or upset, as well as ensuring they have plenty of fun games to play and regular exercise.

For more ideas on how to curb destructive chewing, we’ve rounded up our top 4 tips:

“Dog-proof” your house:

Be sure to keep your valuable objects out of your pup’s reach until you’re confident that they won’t be chewed on. We suggest keeping your shoes and clothes in a closet, dirty laundry in a hamper, and books on shelves.

Provide your pup with plenty of appropriate chew toys:

Be sure to take note of the toys that keep your pup chewing for long periods of time and try to limit their access to them. Rotating or introducing new toys every few days will help ensure your pup doesn’t get bored with the same toys which could make them look elsewhere for things to chew!

Don’t be afraid to offer edible things to chew such as pig ears, rawhide bones, or natural chews:

A very important tip to deter destructive chewing is to help your pup learn the difference between what they should and shouldn’t chew. Offer them a great selection of edible chew toys including pig ears or natural chews. However, it’s best to avoid cooked bones as they may splinter and become a choking hazard.

As a general rule, don’t resort to giving them unwanted or unused household items like old shoes. This will help your pup learn to distinguish what is and isn’t theirs.

Keep them mentally and physically stimulated!

Daily walks, off-leash play with other dogs, tug and fetch games is a great way to achieve this. If, however you have a high energy breed, you may require more stimulation so why not sign up for an agility course or alpha dog training to truly engage both you and your pet?

If you work long hours or need to leave your dog unattended for a long period of time, why not have a good high-energy play session before you leave them alone! That’s sure to tire them out!

6 Tips For A Successful Road Trip With Your Pet

posted by The Daily Fluff March 28, 2017 0 comments

The Easter weekend is coming up. It’s the perfect time for a road trip! And what is a better way to spend a road trip than with your pet pooch? Before you two head off on your weekend getaway, there are a few things you should prepare for in order to have the best holiday possible! So get out your notepad: you’re going to want to take this down!

  1. Check With Your Vet:

Your trip will be a bummer if your pup becomes sick. They’re only going to have a good time if they’re healthy and happy! If it’s been a while since your last check-up, pay your vet a visit. Make sure you’re up-to-date on vaccinations, medications and dietary plans. Also, check with them about where you’re going in case your dog needs some special treatment.

  1. What to Do:

If your holiday destination isn’t pet friendly, your pooch won’t have a lot of fun. Look up some activities for you two to enjoy together. Wherever you go, there are bound to be loads of things to do that your dog will love. From long walks to grabbing a bite at a pet-friendly café, it will be impossible for your dog to be bored!

  1. Where to Stay:

Not a lot of accommodation is friendly towards dogs. That’s why it is vital to find somewhere suitable for you and your pup to stay. There are websites you can visit that have lists of dog-friendly accommodation options. No matter where you go or what your spending limit is, you and your dog will definitely need to sleep well so you’re well rested for a fun holiday!

  1. Planning Your Route:

A great part about road trips is getting to see the sights. When planning your route to your destination, schedule some short breaks for you and your dog. Stretch your legs, go to the toilet, grab a bite to eat and take some time to have a look around. Once you get back in the car, you’ll both be refreshed and ready to go!

  1. Stock Up:

When organising luggage, pack a bag just for your pooch so nothing gets mixed up. Make a list of all the things your dog will need such as food, water, bowls, a leash or two, toys, protective wear, grooming tools, poop bags, treats, bedding and medication if they need. Also, grab some items for the car ride that will be easy to grab for breaks and rest stops.

  1. Before You Hop in the Car:

On the day of the road trip, you’ll want to make sure your pup will be safe in the car. This will include making sure they’re safely secured and unlikely to distract you while you’re driving. If your car has a large boot and your dog is big enough, pop them back there. Otherwise, a crate should do to make sure they won’t roam around or fall over. If you can’t get a crate, try taking your dog for a walk before you leave so they are tired and relaxed during the ride.

Your road trip with your pet will be smooth and trouble free now that you’re well prepared. Don’t forget to have buckets of fun!

4 Ways To Make Your Life As A Dog Owner Less Stressful

posted by The Daily Fluff March 28, 2017 0 comments

Dogs make our lives happier with their wagging tails, dangling tongue and excited barking. However, while their cute and cuddly presence brightens up everybody’s day, puppies can also be a bit of a handful.

If you’re getting a bit overwhelmed, we have some tips on how you can live your life with your pooch with no worries at all!

  1. House Training:

If you have a new pooch in your home, you may be worried about how they may adjust to their new living quarters. They’ll need to be taught straight away that the whole world, in fact, ISN’T their garden, and therefore cannot be used as toilets. If you’ve never house trained before, the general idea is to take your pup outside for toilet breaks every 30 minutes. The purpose of this is to get into your pet’s head that the outside is their toilet, not inside. Your new pup will also need to be watched constantly so that there is little risk of an accident. Get everyone in the house on board and have a shift schedule for who will be watching the new housemate. It may also help to find some obedience classes for you and your dog to take together. You two can have fun together as you learn how to get them to be on their best behaviour!

  1. Walking:

Taking your dog out for a walk isn’t just for toilet breaks: the fresh air also relieves them of stress and anxiety and gets them some regular exercise. If you’re too tired to take them for a walk, however, don’t stress yourself out! Aim to try and get at least 10 minutes a day. A quick walk around the block should do it. If you want the walk to be done as soon as possible, take a few treats with you. Give them to your dog after they’ve gone to the toilet or when you’re finished to encourage a shorter walk. If you’re a busy person who often comes home late after work, get someone in the family to walk your pooch, or hire a local dog walker to do it while you’re away. Once you get home, you can expect your dog to be lying on the floor passed out from their big day.

  1. The Dog Sitter:

If you’re a busy person, or you’re planning a long holiday, you may be worried your pooch won’t get the care they need. Luckily there are many options for you to consider so your dog will be well looked after while you’re away. Pop online and look up some local dog boarding houses for your pup to stay in. It’ll be like they’re having a holiday too! If boarding isn’t your cup of tea, look up some professional pet sitters who can stay at the house or mind your dog at their place. Or if you want to be sure you can completely trust your carer, get a friend to take care of your fur baby. Make sure you cover everything they need to know, such as vet contacts, food, walking schedules and back up contacts.

  1. The Vet:

Nobody likes to visit the vet, especially your pooch. But when they’re sick or injured, you will do anything to make sure your dog is well again. However, there are so many times you can visit the vet until the bills start pilling up. There are many strategies that can help you save money and keep your dog healthy. Taking them for regular check ups will decrease the likeliness of your dog becoming unwell and save loads of money in the long run. Getting pet insurance can help cover costs related to illnesses and injures. Money may still be spent, but it will benefit for emergency situations. It’s also a good idea to keep track of your finances to make sure there’s always some money available for your pup. If you just can’t cover it for whatever reason, ask a friend or relative to help out as a back up. If they love your pet as much as you do, they will have no problem helping out!

The precious moments you have with your dog will surely clear up any stress you may have. So don’t worry about a thing. You and your pooch will be alright.

How to Introduce A New Pet Into Your Home

posted by The Daily Fluff February 23, 2017 0 comments

Is your home feeling like it’s missing something? Does your heart have a hole that’s shaped like a cat or a dog? Do you already have a pet and they want a new buddy? Whether you want a new pet or already have one, bringing an animal into your home is not only the best idea ever, but it is also a huge adjustment.

Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. After reading our guide, you’ll want to go out and adopt a million little animals! Read on for our top tips for welcoming a new pet into your home:

  1. Choosing the Right Pet

Before you even begin to think about bringing a new pet home, you’ll want to make sure you pick the best one for you. As they say, the first step is always the hardest. Deep down inside, you just want to adopt all of the little guys. However, as sad as it may be, it’s not possible. While you may have your eye on the cutest pet or a breed you’ve had your heart set on, there are a few things you should consider. How big is your home? Does it have a backyard? Do you have any kids? Do you have an existing pet? Is your existing pet well socialised? Your new pet needs to be able to meet all of your prerequisites. It’s not just for your happiness, but for them too. If they’re living in an environment that doesn’t suit their needs, then it’ll be hard for them to love their new home.

  1. Preparing Your Home

Before you bring your new pet home, you need to make sure your house is ready for their arrival. Make sure that the house is clean and safe so that your new pet won’t get hurt and that they don’t ruin anything. If you’re bringing a new cat home, have a room prepared for them. Cats are likely to be shy around new areas, so temporarily confine them to a room with a litter tray until they’re comfortable. Dogs will need more room to roam around in. They’ll also need to go outside to use the bathroom. Having a large backyard will be an advantage. If you have a back room leading out to the backyard, create a barrier so that they’re confined there while still having access to outside. If you don’t have a backyard, confine them to a room, but make sure you take them out for bathroom breaks. If you already have a pet, keep them separated in a room or space they like.

  1. Bringing Your New Pet Home

Your home is prepped, the papers are filled out and your arms are wide open. It’s time for your new pet to come home! When you welcome them into their new home, immediately secure them in their designated space. They may be a bit spooked, so be patient. Just give them their space so they can get used to their new environment. Also, be prepared for the fact that they may not warm up to you immediately. The best friendships take time! Sit down on the floor and allow them to come to you. Try shaking a toy or spreading out some food in front of you. Don’t worry; they will love you in time. Once they’re comfortable being around you and their space, gradually allow them to wonder around the house and outside, but make sure you keep an eye on them.

When I moved into my forever home it was very important that mum and dad showed me around everywhere. They praised me when I touched and played with things that I was allowed to, and when I wasn’t allowed to chew/jump on something at home they gave me a stern NO! Giving me plenty of time by myself so I didn’t get seperation anxiety was important too! – Bentley 

If you already have a pet, you may be nervous about introducing them to their new buddy. A trick you can try is rubbing a blanket each on them both and placing it near the opposite pet. That way they can get used to their scent before they meet so they won’t view them as a threat. Once you feel it’s time, place them in a room together, but at bay. If you prefer, you can have your pets on leashes, but be prepared for them to be a little aggressive. If things get out of hand, separate them and try again another time.

Your new pet will soon feel right at home in your house and with you. You’re all one big happy family!

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!

5 Tips For Socialising Your Puppy

posted by The Daily Fluff February 6, 2017 0 comments

Getting your puppy used to people and other dogs can be a delicate but important process. It’s vital to teach them to play well with other dogs, handle new places and react to new people and other pets in a friendly and easy-going way. Pups who don’t develop good social skills can become fearful and sometimes aggressive.

To avoid that, here are some tips to help you prepare your furry friend for the world!

Sign-up for Puppy School:

As well as teaching your puppy good behaviour habits, most schools will spend some time on socialising. Professional trainers can help you with any concerns you may have for you and your pup along with teaching you the power of body language!

You both may make a few great friends along the way – bonus!

Take them out to new places:

Introduce your furry friends to as many different types of people as you can. Taking them to a market or to a café gives them an opportunity to observe and become comfortable around other people.

Get a little help from your friends:

Getting your friends to hang out with your adorable pup isn’t difficult. If you know somebody with a dog, why not set-up a little play date?! Trust is vital so find a playmate you know is friendly and patient.

Regular walks at a dog park:

Dog parks are a good way of introducing your pet to other dogs of all shapes and sizes. It’s important to set a good example for your pup and greet other dogs warmly. Start by introducing your pup to dogs of a similar size and if in doubt, keep them on the lead in case they get too scared or aggressive so you can easily walk them away.

Treat it like training: 

A good way to encourage good socialising behaviour is to reward your little fluffy friend when they do something well. Have a few treats handy for when you go for a walk or visit your friends and they behave in a friendly and sociable way. Your dog will soon find the incentive to be on their best behaviour!

How To Choose The Right Dog Breed For You

posted by The Daily Fluff January 31, 2017 0 comments

For any pet lover who is looking to bring a new pup into their family, choosing the right breed can be challenge. How are you supposed to choose when there are so many amazing and adorable breeds in the world?!

While we all tend to be drawn to breeds we think are cute and cuddly, it’s important to also think about how to best care for your potential pup. This may mean that you have to make some hard practical decisions when bringing a new dog into your home.

Here are some questions you should ask yourself before picking your breed of dog. 

How much space do you have?

If you’re living somewhere small you are probably better off with a smaller dog breed. If you’re living in an apartment you’re better off looking for a low energy dog so that your pup isn’t couped up and gloomy. Big dogs need a lot of space, a large backyard and most of the time a decent vacuum cleaner!

How much time to you have?

Some dogs require more attention than others and are miserable being alone too long. For example working dogs like German Shepherds and Border Collies are very active, need long walks and plenty of company. If the house is empty for most of the day and you don’t have time to go on long walks you are more suited to small dogs like Cavoodles or Maltese breeds. They are pretty happy to laze around!

Why are you getting a dog?

In order to pick the right breed, you may also need to ask yourself why you are getting a dog in the first place?

For many of us, it’s the love and companionship of having a fluff ball running around causing adorable chaos that makes us sure we need to add a new fur baby to our home. However, you may also have another practical reason, whether that’s to guard your home or to provide friendship to your young children.

6 Things Your Cat Needs For The Perfect Life

posted by The Daily Fluff January 30, 2017 0 comments

Do you have a cat? Do you love them to bits? Do you want them to have the (purr)fect life? You’ve come to the right place! Cats need lots of love and attention so that they can return the favour. Here’s a list of all the things your cat needs to have the perfect life!

Here’s a list of all the things your cat needs to have the perfect life! 

  1. A Healthy Diet:

Your cats need to be well fed so they can become big and strong. However, it’s important to know what they should eat. A healthy diet for your cat provides strong muscles, soft fur, fresh teeth and a suitable weight. Different meals work for different cats, so check with your vet what your cat should be eating and how much.

  1. A Comfy Bed:

It’s a well-known fact that cats sleep more than humans. They sleep about 16-20 hours a day, something that we’re envious of. Nevertheless, because they sleep so much, your kitty needs a fresh and comfy bed. It has to be the right size, and it has to been cleaned regularly so they don’t sleep in their own loose fur. It’s also important that they’re cleaned regularly for health benefits, both ours and our cats. This can be done with vacuums, brushes, or in the washing machine (check if the bed is suitable). Your cat will have the best beauty sleep ever!

  1. A Bunch of Toys:

Kitties are a playful bunch, so they’ll need some toys to play with. You can buy some toys from your local pet store, such as balls and fake mice. However, you can also make your own toys! Grab some loose string from around the house and have your cat chase it around. Or get some tin foil and roll it up into a ball for you cat to skid around your floors.

  1. A Sunny Day:

Cats need their daily dose of vitamin D as much as we do. When you’re heading out for the day, let you cat outside so that they can run around or take a nap beneath the trees. Some cats can be indoor ones, so give them a small handful of biscuits to lure them out. Your cat needs to be suitable to go outside too. Make sure that they’re not likely to get into fights or run away. You don’t want anything to happen to your little ball of fur!

  1. Plenty of Grooming:

When your cat goes outside, their fur is likely to get covered with leaves, dirt and sticks. Smooth their fur down with a good brush. Have their fur soft and shiny with a regular brushing session. It will reduce the likeliness of fleas and tics as well. Your cat may not like their knots getting brushed out, and they may bite or scratch you. This is a good opportunity to clip their nails. That way their nails are healthy, and they won’t be as sharp if they should scratch you. If you’re skittish about your cat scratching you, your Vet or local pet groomer will be happy to do it for you.

  1. A Bowl of Water:

Last, but certainly not least, a well-hydrated kitty is a happy kitty. Your cat will need a big bowl of water to drink throughout the day. Sorry, they need SEVERAL bowls of water. Have one next to where your cat eats and sleeps, and a couple outside, in the front and back yard. Especially during the warmer months, your kitty will likely get hot and bothered quickly. After all, they are wearing a fur coat that they can’t take off. Make sure that the bowls are clean and that they’re full. Your cat will gulp down that water fast.

Your cat will have the best owner ever with all these things you can provide for them. Be prepared for lots of cuddles as a reward!

Puppy Play Date 101

posted by The Daily Fluff January 23, 2017 0 comments

It’s important for your pup to make new friends. It increases their socialisation skills and helps them stay calm and friendly around others. However, your dog can also help you socialise at the same time!

Looking for new friends? Look no further! Puppy play dates can be beneficial for both pup and owner.

If you’ve never had or been on a puppy play date before, here are a few ways you two can be ready before the big date!

Obedience Classes:

If you have an adorable little puppy, they’re most likely to be rambunctious, wild and looking for fun. Some obedience classes will be needed to ensure that they are well trained so that they behave on their date. You can take this opportunity for you two to make new friends. If you’re both new, talk to some other owners and ask for tips on how to better train your dog. If you two have been attending for a while, give some tips to some new owners. Also make sure your pup is socialising as well. Slowly allow them to meet other dogs that are the same size as them so that they don’t get intimidated easily. Once they’re used to meeting new friends, they’ll be able to approach anyone with friendliness and discipline.

Go for a walk:

An easy way to make new friends, especially once your pooch is well trained, is to take them for a walk. This is a great way for your dog to be exposed to breeds of all shapes and sizes in your neighbourhood. Once they’re comfortable meeting new dogs, you can take them to the local dog park where they can run and make new friends. At the same time, you can strike up a conversation with local dog owners. Laugh along together when the dogs do something cute or funny. Ask them any questions you have about raising your pet. Talk about a recent movie you saw. The conversation topics are endless!

Join a Playgroup:

There are plenty of playgroups around where you and your dog can make new friends. Google a local group that benefits both you and your pooch. Once you find one, head on down and make some new friends! Depending on your dog’s breed, joining a playgroup that caters to a certain breed may be beneficial for your pup. Especially if your pup is small, having them around the same breed or other small dogs may help them be less intimidated than if they were around bigger ones. Once they’ve settled in, strike up a conversation with other members about how your dogs are the best pets ever!

The Play Date:

Once you and your pup have made new friends, you can organise a play date! Make sure it’s at a home that’s safe and large so they have plenty of room to run around and have some fun! Also make sure that your dog is comfortable around new people and environments. You don’t want any accidents to happen if they’re shy! Set your pups up in a backyard with their new furry friends and sit down, relax and have a coffee! Just be sure you keep a watchful eye on the little ones.
