Pets are like snowflakes, all are beautiful in their own unique ways.

It’s not a surprise to pet owners but the research says that man’s best friend acts more human than pooches. Dogs are more like us than we thought. Pets have proven to be a constant companion for every individual.

During this pandemic, one positive side of the people staying at home is that it has brought the pet adoption ratio way up. 

A lot of people have just adopted their furry playmates. They are called Quarantine Critters or Pandemic Pets.

It’s great news that more pets are being adopted but at the same time, it also means that new pet owners have a responsibility to properly train their new companions before their lives become more normal, and many of us are back at full-time work.
