Hi all,

I haven’t written in ages.  My apologies.

People will probably have my head for this so here it goes.


While going through my tweets I came across a very interesting link. It was about 10 tips for saving money and still giving your pets the best you can.


Is it only me who realised that we here in SA don’t really have coupons? Or once a year sales? Surely if you have a shop or chain of pet accessories you would want your product sold?

How come they don’t really have specials. Or 2 for the price of 1.


Saying this, SA has some growing up to do in regards to their animals. Most of the people here either have outside guard dogs or handbag puppies.

So they will either buy everything they can for fluffy  or Max has to sleep in the yard like a man and he’s lucky to have a proper food dish.

I can’t help thinking people will change their minds about buying quality for their pets if the prices came down a bit. Or if you got free shipping for your dog house made from some indestructible material for Max who hasn’t left the yard since you brought him home.


Even training will benefit from this. If some of the big shops could say ok, if you use this trainer or parlor or dog walker you can have discounts every month.

These discount can very. For instance you can have food on discount now. Next month it can be the indestructible toy to go with your indestructible dog house you bought for Max. Or maybe 3 walks from your local dog walker for the price of one.


My point I think is just this. People need to realise that dogs have ivolved since so many years ago. So your dog hasn’t got a job like in the past any more. They actually need toys and walks and stimulation or they will go out of their minds. So maybe it’s a good idea to spend some money on something chewy or to play with until the accesseries stores decide to put these things on special. Your pet will thank you for it. And you won’t even have to break the bank.
