Choosing to adopt a dog is a BIG decision. There are SO many considerations.
From the simple suitability perspective – breed, age, size, exercise and training needs, etc… to the more complex financial impact and lifestyle changes involved.
And you know, these considerations can’t be taken lightly. Because, let’s face it, a dog is for life. His or her entire life. A life that can span 13 years or more.
I started Eat Wag Play out of a love for dogs and a passion to educate humans on what it truly means to bring a dog into a home.
Too many dogs get abandoned, left in shelters, or neglected.
But it’s RARELY their fault, if ever.
Perhaps the owner didn’t do the research into breed/lifestyle compatibilty. Or they didn’t realise the expense involved. Or they resented the restrictions the dog placed on their lifestyle…
Whatever the reason, it’s wasn’t the dog’s fault.
So my thinking is that with a bit more transparency into the highs and lows of dog ownership, these common owner mistakes wouldn’t continue to happen.
At least, that’s my mission…
… to educate people before they collect their bundle of joy, as well as continuing to guide in those early stages.
It can be a whirlwind of craziness, but totally worth it, and a whole of heap of fun too!
Eat Wag Play is my passion.
I want to see dogs the world over living their best life ?
Since its conception, I’ve completed a Canine Nutrition Certificate (Cert.CN) to educate myself on how to raise a nutritionally healthy pup, graduating through the globally respected Companion Animal Sciences Institute.
I’ve also received diplomas in Canine Communication and Pet Psychology.
And I continue to advance my learning in behavioral science, canine fitness, and canine well-being.
Eat Wag Play aims to arm new dog owners, or people thinking about becoming dog owners, with practical advice, tips and must-knows to raise a happy, healthy pup.
Treat your dog well and you’ll be rewarded with boundless energy, love, and a LIFETIME of happiness!
