Today, February 20th, is National Love Your Pet Day! Of course, you love your pet every day, but this unofficial holiday is a great reminder to do something special or spend more quality time together than you normally would.
If your pet got a little neglected in the hubbub around Valentine’s Day, make sure he gets plenty of affection today! Here are just a few simple ideas:
❤ Special grooming session
❤ Food treat that you know he loves
❤ New toy
❤ Walk together
❤ Play together
❤ Teach him a new trick or command to keep his mind active
❤ Any bedding update that makes him more comfortable
❤ Extra pats and cuddles
Doesn’t your pet look darling curled up on your bed, blissfully soaking in the afternoon sunbeams or getting in that all-important third nap for the day? Of course, when he hops off your bed, the picture looks much less rosy. Your bedding is covered in dog hair… or dirt… or snags from your sweet kitty’s claws. The Premier Puff Pet Bed Protector allows your pet to keep his favorite snooze spot while protecting your bedding.
Simply place this throw on top of your bedding, at the foot of your bed. Twin, Full/Queen, and King sizes are available to suit various beds; plus, several colors are available, so you can choose a hue to coordinate or contrast with your bedding. This pet bed protector has a soft, plush square design, making it comfy and inviting for your furry friend. The fabric is snag- and soil-resistant, and the throw can be machine washed and line dried. Layer a few Premier Puff Pillows nearby, and your pet may claim your bed as his own!
The Premier Puff Pet Bed Protector is a Touch of Class® exclusive design, so you won’t find it anywhere else. Click here to view measurement information and to order this cover.
Did you adopt and welcome a dog into your home for the holidays? Kudos to you for giving him a forever home with lots of compassion and love. If January has been an adjustment period for you both, it’s a good time to remind you that January is National Train Your Dog Month.
This campaign was started in 2010 by the Association of Professional Dog Trainers to help pet parents and their new dogs start the year off right. Their belief was that behavioral issues with a new pet could be addressed with proper socialization and positive training—and that this could help dissuade owners from abandoning or surrendering a new pet to a shelter. Of course, even if your pet isn’t a new member of your household, you can still take the time to brush up on commands and training.

Are you trying to keep a neater home in the new year? Make it a little easier on yourself to keep that resolution (and to live peacefully with your pet) with the Premier Puff Pet Furniture Protector.
This pet furniture cover has a soft, plush puff square design in a solid color. Tuck-in flaps and a longer back help keep it in place; we also recommend the use of a rug pad underneath to reduce slippage. This handsome furniture protector is snag- and soil-resistant and machine washable.
Offered in a rainbow of colors, this furniture cover is available in recliner, loveseat, and sofa sizes. The recliner cover can be used on a standard chair; for a chair and a half, we recommend the loveseat cover.

Do you love digging out the Christmas decorations and turning your home into a holiday wonderland? Do you wrap presents like an origami master?

Is your family adopting a new pet for Christmas? Or do you simply love holiday wall art that reminds you of your own precious furball? This lighted pet wall art features adorable, snowy scenes of sweet animals just delivered by Santa. He’s left his large, cozy bag behind, and each animal has curled up inside to keep warm, just waiting to be discovered by its new owners.
LED lights illuminate the tree in each scene to make the canvases even more special. One canvas depicts a lovable Golden Retriever puppy with a plaid holiday bow. The other shows a striped kitten sleeping soundly near a Christmas present.
