Today I’m excited to be partnering with Petco to help promote the national event “Clear The Shelters” happening later this month! Though we didn’t adopt our dog Max, I still remember how anxious Capri and Cannon were to finally get a puppy! A couple Christmases ago we surprised them with Max and ever since then we’ve been one big, happy family!
My kids had been around dogs prior to getting Max (my sister Rachel has a lab and so do my parents), so they understood how much work goes into training a puppy! We explained to them that Max was now a member of our family and we all needed to pitch in to teach him and train him. From potty training to eating habits to sleeping arrangements, we had to train Max how we wanted him to behave and act in all things. He’s still an energetic puppy, but luckily he’s come a long way and we’ve all been able to experience helping him fit into our family dynamic!
Petco is our favorite place to shop for Max! They have everything you need from grooming to training to nutrition to treats, supplies and toys!
If you don’t already have a pet but have always wanted one, I seriously suggest adoption through Clear The Shelters! They have amazing animals who need a loving home, and I can speak for myself and every member of my family when I say we absolutely love Max and can’t believe it took us so long to get him!
This post was made in partnership with Petco, where we believe that every animal deserves to live its best life. And together, with animal lovers like you, we’re working to create a better world for them.
