Fun and safe ways to entertain your pet
A few months ago I wrote an post about keeping your cat indoors vs. outdoor. There are many dangers to your pets outside such as other animals and cars. Your pets also have the opportunity to ruin your freshly planted flowers if you let them run wild outside. However, it is important that your pets get daily exercise in order to stay healthy. Luckily, it is possible today you let your pets run outside or inside in a safe and contained environment so that they can get exercise without you worrying for their safety. Read below the cut for some great options!
Pet playpens are a great way to keep your pet entertained when you have a guest over, or are trying to clean the house. Playpens are an enclosed area where your pet can rest comfortably. Some look like large cages, but others are pop-up and allow for more space for your pet to move around in. If you have a pet that can jump high, like a cat or a rabbit, you should purchase a playpen with a lid or else your pet could jump out if left unmonitored. If you have a kitten or a puppy, it’s a good idea to get a playpen with soft edges and windows so that your pet can see outside and sleep comfortably in the playpen. Many playpens come with an outside compartment or an inner tray for treats or a doggy door that allows your pet to move easily between spaces if you plan on keeping the playpen inside.
A pet exercise pen is specially designed as a space where your pet can play safely. It is perfect for people that travel frequently with their pets because many exercise pens can fold up easily. This way, your pet has a place to play while you’re in an important business meeting. You don’t need to worry about it getting lost, and it can still get all the exercise it needs while traveling. Just remember to pack your pet in a clean living cage on the airplane and you’re ready to go!
Hope this post helped you keep your pet happy, healthy and safe!
