As many as 67% of American households have at least one family pet, with 63.4 million families owning at least one pup. In cities like Portland, we see the pattern of dog parents sustaining its progression. The percentage of homes owning a dog is projected to continue increasing as rescuing animals continues to grow, and as the health benefits of owning a dog become more apparent. After all, dogs are not just property or animals. To their owners and families, they are full-fledged members of the household, needing attention and affection just as much as any human. They want to be loved and pampered.
And so, with the joys of pet ownership also come obligations for proper care. These can include ensuring the health and well-being of your furry best friend, as well as creating a setting that is secure and mindful of your pet's restrictions and special requirements. Part of this involves maximizing your dog's security, especially as they develop over time. After all, an active puppy will have slightly different physical needs than a senior dog.
