Ways To Pamper Your Dog

Most people can agree that man's best friend is a loyal and accommodating companion. For the most part, we give our dogs regular walks, occasional grooming and treats for a job well-done. Something interesting has happened in the last 30 years or so. While we're working 10-hour days and struggling to pay our mortgages and feed our kids, somehow our pets have become furry balls of stress. At least, that's what the pet pampering industry would have you believe. As a result, many gourmet and luxury businesses dedicated exclusively to spoiling animals have emerged. No, we're not talking about the $3-million dog collars that are out of the question for the average person but the items and services that are within reach.
