Robotic pets? Puppies groomed to look like Spiderman? All over the world, there are owners who have unconventional pets. In this latest post, we’ll take a look at some popular pet trends around the world!
- In China, the fad is (safely) dyeing their pet’s hair crazy colors to make their dogs seem like they are other animals! For instance, in Chinese pet stores you may see dogs that look like tigers, panda bears or even Spiderman! This fad has been popular since mid-2010 and shows how the Asian culture has found a unique and creative way to show off their dog!
- Remember Tamagotchis? These playful pixels were all the rage in the 90s popular among kids who were able to own, take care of and provide for their “own” pet, also teaching the children responsibility as the pets meet their end with a “game over” if they go too long without taking care of them. Although the Tamagotchi trend ended in the late 90s, they’re coming back strong in 2013 with a new app available to download and play!
- Coming on to the scene in the early 2000s, robotic pets are still on the rise around the world. These pets are perfect for the owner who isn’t interested in taking their pet outside for walks or cleaning up after their mess! Robotic pets can come as dogs, cats, or other animals! Robotic animals can be used as companions and also for therapy for the elderly.

January is National Train Your Dog Month! Founded in 2010, National Train Your Dog Month began as a way to raise awareness to socialization and training of dogs. The month of January was picked as many people get new puppies as gifts over the winter holidays and starting off the New Year with a new puppy to train can be a little overwhelming!
As daunting as it sounds, training your dog can be lots of fun and you can spend a lot of time bonding with your dog! With lots of patience and quality time, you will be impressed at what your dog can do. The benefits of training are limitless. It has been shown to be one of the most important things that keeps a dog in his or her “forever home,” and it makes the owner’s life easier for their pet to know basic commands such as “sit”, “come” or “stay”. Training your dog to be well mannered can help in the socialization of your dog whether they are a puppy or an adult. Having a dog that is well socialized makes them more secure, and confident. Socialization is the key to a well-behaved dog− they won’t be frightened and they can easily adjust to new things they will see when walking around with them.
Since it’s winter and outside activities are limited due to the cold weather, to train your dog in basic commands so by the time spring comes around you can proudly show your dog the tricks he learned!
