I’ve been working with the people from Housemydog.com to produce some helpful information for pet owners. I’ve done some normal written blogs for them, and we’ve also been working on some short videos. They’ve put these into a Youtube video channel, which you can access by clicking here.
We’ve covered a number of subjects – each video is less than five minutes and it’s designed to give you an instant update in the topic under discussion.
So far, we’ve done videos on the following issues:
You can watch each video by clicking on any one of the links above, or you can watch them all by going directly to the Housemydog Youtube channel.
By the way, if you haven’t heard of Housemydog, this is a good moment to let you know about it. Basically, it’s a new, internet-enabled way of having your dog cared for while you are away on holidays – it’s an alternative to the traditional boarding kennels. There are two types of users of the Housemydog website.
First, there are people who want to mind other people’s dogs in their own homes. These are animal lovers who like the idea of looking after someone else’s pets for short (or long) periods. They are screened by the Housemydog team, and once they have cared for a few pets, they put up online references from satisfied customers. The internet makes it very easy to find people who can be trusted, proven by their track record as reviewed by other pet owners.
Second, there are people who want to have their pets cared for in a set up that is different to boarding kennels. They want their dogs to live in a family home, being taken for walks, fed their dinner and enjoying human companionship. Housemydog makes it easy to find people who are happy to look after your dog while you are away.
