Now that you and your pets are pent up together like never before, do you wonder what’s going on in their wee little heads? (Or giant noggins, as in Frankie Feldman’s case? Are they happy that you’re with them 24/7? Just as bored as you are? Nervous about hearing the word “shelter” so often? Maybe even feeling a little annoyed that their personal space is being invaded non-stop?

I’m thinking we need some unique survival tactics for our pets as well as for ourselves, so I’ve compiled a list of pet products that are sure to keep your fur baes happy, healthy, obedient and occupied, even in these challenging times. Check them out:

Stay At Home Survival Guide for Pets

Pet Plate Fresh-Cooked Meal Delivery

I just realized that a lot of my trips to the store are made on behalf of Frankie Feldman. Dog’s gotta eat, and boy is he picky! So I was thrilled when I heard about Pet Plate, that will deliver a month’s worth of fresh-cooked meals for canines to my door. They arrive frozen, in two-a-day-meal containers, and you can also use the tasty food for toppers. They’re all made with human-grade ingredients, like USDA meats, fruits, vegetables, healthy grains, vitamins and minerals, and they’re kettle-cooked in a USDA kitchen. Not only are they convenient, but their added benefits include better digestion, a shinier coat and increased energy. Frankie freakin’ LOVES them, and so do all the members of his dog posse, with whom he frequently frolics while we owners stay six feet apart.
From $36 per month for toppers for a small dog to $230 per month for full daily meals for a large dog. Shipping is included. New customers receive 40% off their first order.

Whimzees Dental Treats

stay at home survival guide for petsYour pup will love these adorable dog chews made of all natural ingredients that not only clean their teeth, but also last up to three times longer than your average dog chew! This is especially great for Frankie Feldman, who manages to make beef cheeks and bully sticks disappear in a matter of minutes. They come in all sorts of whimsical shapes and sizes, and, if close quarters have made you painfully aware of your best friend’s dog breath, Whimzees are just what the dogtor ordered.

    Love Eric! He worked with us and trained us well! Of course our dog, Tia the Double Doodle was the reason why he “trained” us! Great guy and great training services! Our little a Tia is so smart she has her own YouTube Pawcasts! They help all of us humans get through such tough times together!

    Thanks for sharing Eric’s info… he and his staff are wonderful!

    Every dog-owner should know Eric Letendre and learn the Art of dogtraining he developed and teaches in easy steps.
    I receive his newsletters since Feb 2010 and got free books as well as I bought some online-training course he offered.
    Whilst I am German and live near Frankfurt I’ll never make it to meet Eric personally but who ever lives near his place should go out to meet him and learn how to become your dogs very best friend without doing the dog any harm.
    Thank You very much Eric. I wish to you all the best.

      Hi Susanne,
      just read your comment and it struck me since I am German too and grew up in Hanau. I have not meet Eric in person yet because our first consultation had to get cancelled due to the virus. He’s been sending us his videos and we have been watching them and can’t wait to meet him and start training our 2 German Sheperds. Interesting how far his videos go! Good luck with your dog/dogs!
