Everything you need to keep your home and pet in style

We all know that pets bring joy to our hearts, but did you know that they’re also good for our hearts as well?

Researchers from The American Heart Association reviewed years of data on the cardiovascular benefits of owning a pet. The group concluded that owning a dog, in particular, was “probably associated” with a reduced risk of heart disease. In an article published in the New York Times, Dr. Glenn N. Levine said that people who own dogs certainly have more reason to get outside and take walks, and studies show that most owners form such close bonds with their pets that being in their presence blunts the owners’ reactions to stress and lowers their heart rate.

Canine Chaise

There’s nothing better than relaxing on your outdoor chaise, soaking up some summer sun. And thanks to this Outdoor Dog Chaise Lounger, Fido can join you, too! Perfect for the poolside or patio, these doggy digs are made of waterproof plastic rattan material and includes a comfortable, 3" thick, outdoor cushion. And the overhang provides some protection from the sun because, yes, dogs can get sunburned, too.
