5 Ways You Can Save Money If You're A Dog Parent

5 Ways You Can Save Money If You're A Dog Parent

Having a pup brings joy to your life, but it’s also a big financial commitment! As such, it’s a good idea to find ways to save up where you can while still ensuring your pup lives a happy and healthy life. Here are five ways to do that!

1. Supplement Food

Making a pup’s food on your own every day can be costly and take up valuable time. Luckily, you can supplement a pup’s diet with fresh, healthy foods if you can’t afford to always pick up the highest quality kibble. Add in some dog-friendly human foods or produce to your pup’s meals – but make sure to consult a vet before changing your pup’s diet!

2. Do It Yourself

You’d be amazed at the amount of money you can save by making DIY things for your pups! Anything as simple as empty water bottles or old stuffed animals and pillows make excellent toys, and there are plenty of tutorials and ideas available online for you to make more interesting puzzles and toys for your pup.

You can also look up recipes for DIY treats, or simply freeze fruit or vegetables for a quick, cheap snack. On top of all that, you can even make a dog bed from old clothes that’s just as comfy as a store-bought one! And all of these, and more, are easy to find tutorials for online.

3. Home Grooming

You don’t need to go to a groomer to learn to clip your pup’s nails, give her a good bath, or get a haircut done. Even if you need professional help for one of those things, learning to do the others can save a lot of money on services in the long run and bring you closer to your pup.

4. Find Ways To Save At The Vet

No one can deny that veterinary costs can add up painfully. Luckily, there are ways that you learn to cut medical costs without sacrificing your pup’s health.

5. Shop Smart

Buying pet supplies online can actually promise tons of savings. Plenty of sites have discounts and coupon codes to offer, along with other external sites that can offer cash back off of purchases from certain stores. It’s also much more convenient, as items will be delivered right to your doorstep! In addition, don’t forget to check out after-holiday sales in stores – your pup won’t mind getting a Christmas-themed gift in March!
