Go Green with Your Dog

Want to go green with your dog? It's really easy to do and you'll feel good knowing you're doing your part to help save Mother Earth.


Each year on April 22, we celebrate Earth Day as people all over the world partake in activities to help improve our environment and heighten awareness of preserving our planet.

Through conservation, recycling, the use of eco-friendly products as well as practicing other earth friendly activities, it all adds up in the long run to help preserve this wonderful planet of ours.

To help you get those creative juices flowing on how you can celebrate the day, here are our Top 10 Go Green with Your Dog Tips!

10 Eco-Friendly Pet Care Tips


  1. Use natural and chemical free grooming products when bathing your dog. These products are much milder for dogs with skin sensitivities.
  2. Make homemade dog toys or a homemade dog bed for your Miniature Schnauzer using recycled materials. For example: Don't throw out an old pair of socks with holes.... Instead tie a few knots in it and you'll have a new dog toy.
  3. Bake natural dog treats for your Miniature Schnauzer. Homemade dog treats containing no preservatives are also better for your dog.
  4. Buy eco-friendly dog products for your Miniature Schnauzer. There's a great selection of dog collars, harnesses, leashes, beds. chew toys, dog houses, apparel and accessories, made from
    created with recyclable or biodegradable materials.
  5. Plant a tree in honor of your Miniature Schnauzer.
  6. Use biodegradable pet waste bags when you're out and about with your Miniature Schnauzer.
  7. Create a dog scrapbook for your Mini Schnauzer. This is a fun activity for the whole family and you're recycling materials at the same time!
  8. If you haven't already, spay or neuter your dog! Studies have shown that "fixed pets" live longer and besides, there are already so many homeless dogs needing homes, including Miniature Schnauzers.
  9. Practice being a responsible dog owner!
  10. Take your Mini Schnauzer to the dog park and enjoy the great outdoors and all Mother Earth has to offer.

We can all reduce our carbon paw prints with just these few changes alone.


Natural Bamboo Dog Toys

So start buying eco-friendly dog supplies, begin feeding your Schnauzers all natural dog food and treats and give a go at preparing delicious homemade dog food, too. Your dog could do without the added preservatives and other toxic chemicals that regular dog food has which not only has negative effects on our pets but our planet, too.

Be sure to recycle even the smallest items from products you've purchased for your dog. A tiny can of food or a small cardboard label from a dog toy may seem insignificant but it all adds up.


Biodegradable Pet Waste Bags

Do not leave animal waste in yards or at the dog park thinking it will degrade on its own. This is not the answer and it's not good for the environment.

Parasites, bacteria, and viruses can be transmitted via dog feces and a good rain could wash it all right down the storm drain to infect our rivers and lakes and ultimately the quality of our drinking water!

Be a responsible dog owner and pick up your dog's poop. And you can further help Mother Earth by using biodegradable earth-friendly poop bags. Be sure to keep extras in your car so you are always prepared when traveling with your pet.

And there are so many other ways to reduce your dog's carbon paw print from carpooling with other doggy pals to the dog park to shopping for your pets online.

Please to take a moment and share with us in the comment section below ways you: REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE.


And one final note, when it comes time to add another furry family member to your home... choose to Adopt a Schnauzer!

Help save Mother Earth .... After all, it is the only planet with Miniature Schnauzers!
