The birth rate in the Philippines has been in a steady decline for the last few years. Instead of having kids, a lot of people or couples are opting to get pets. I feel like I’ve been seeing more puppers inside strollers than actual human babies. That just goes to show how Filipinos can treat their own pets like they would their own flesh and blood. For all “fur-parents” out there, check out the article below on how to make your fur-babies feel at home right in your own home.

First things first. Make sure your home is as pet-friendly as possible.

It’s tempting to immediately pour your money in buying cute and expensive accessories like beds and mats for your dogs and cats. But, always make sure to cover the basics first like ensuring your pet’s safety at home.

How to Make Your Own Pet Dish Riser (VIDEO)

Do you have a larger breed of dog such as a Golden Retriever, a German Shepherd, or a Doberman? Then working on your very own pet dish riser could be a great weekend project. Having a pet riser makes easier for bigger puppers to eat as they don’t have to bend down too much. This can help prevent any back problems in the future.

This idea can also work for smaller pups like Shih Tzus and Pugs, especially if they’re in their senior years. Older dogs tend to have arthritis in their joints that make it hard for them to bend down while eating. Math the math and adjust the pet dish riser accordingly.
