Before I got a dog, I imagined long walks around the neighborhood and happy greetings at the door. Unfortunately, after a few weeks of pet ownership, I learned that there was a little more to it than that. After dealing with some scratched hardwood and more than a few chewed-up shoes, I decided that I needed to really learn how to live with pets. I wanted to make a website dedicated to helping other pet owners to come together to learn the tricks of the trade. It isn't always easy to look after pets, but if you know how to avoid property damage, things can be a lot less stressful.
