    All About the Atlanta Dog Jog

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Just like you, your dog needs plenty of exercise and fresh air in order to stay healthy and fit. The Atlanta Dog Jog can be the perfect opportunity for you to help your dog and yourself get more active in a competitive yet friendly race that is open to the entire community.

    This fun-run style race includes two courses—one and two miles long—each of which is open to participants of all athletic abilities. The whole family is welcome to participate, as strollers and wagons are permitted on both courses. Prizes and awards will be presented for canine participants and their owners, with categories for dogs of all sizes.

    Paws Whiskers & Wags is proud to be a sponsor for the 2013 Atlanta Dog Jog, and we will be out in support of this event on Saturday, May 4th. To learn more about the community events we are involved in or to explore our pet cremation services, contact us on our website or by calling (404) 370-6000.

    Finding a Forever Home [INFOGRAPHIC]

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Pets are special creatures that enrich our lives from the moment they enter our homes. From the very first wag of the tail to the last time they lay their heads in our laps, pets provide us with steadfast companionship and years of laughter. When you are thinking about getting a pet, consider adopting from your local animal shelter. Approximately 3-4 million shelter animals are adopted each year, and you can do your part to reduce overcrowding by giving a shelter pet a forever home. When your pet passes on after a life well-lived, you can honor your furry friend by visiting an Atlanta pet crematory. Hold a memorial to share fond memories of your pal, and your grieving will feel a little less heavy. Check out our Infographic to learn more about adopting a shelter animal and how to cope after your pet passes away. Please share with your fellow animal lovers!

    Understanding the Proper Etiquette for Dog Parks

    Last updated 1 year ago

    For dogs and pet owners alike, a trip to the dog park is a fun and exciting way to spend the afternoon with one another and enjoy the company of some new friends. In order to ensure the wellbeing of your pet and to prevent any mishaps from occurring during your visit, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with some of the observed rules of the park. Let’s take a closer look at the proper etiquette for dog parks:

    Keep It Clean and Tidy

    As the human half of the dog-owner duo, it’s your responsibility to clean up after your pet if he has to poop while at the park. Fortunately, dog parks always have plenty of bags and garbage cans available for you to use when cleaning up. Another way to keep the park spotless is to leave cigarettes and snacks at home or in the car.

    Watch Your Dog at All Times

    Although your dog may be content spending time exploring the park alone, you should maintain sight of him at all times. It’s easy to become distracted these days by a smartphone or any other mobile device you may have on hand, but as a responsible pet owner, you owe it to your dog to make sure that he’s safe throughout the duration of your visit.

    Leave Young or Unneutered Pets at Home

    The caring pet experts at your Atlanta pet crematory understand how exciting it can be to present a new puppy to friends and family. However, when it comes to bringing her to the dog park, be sure to wait until she’s at least four months old. Dogs that have not been spayed or neutered should also be left behind for their own wellbeing and out of respect for other pet owners.

    Our mission here at Paws, Whiskers & Wags is to provide you with an opportunity to honor the life of your pet. As Atlanta’s most trusted provider of pet cremation services, we value each customer’s personal needs and preferences. To make arrangements for your beloved pet, call out caring team today at (404) 370-6000. You can also visit our website to learn more about our pet cremation services.
