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