The Pet Shop that’s Always Open
Welcome to HelloSausage.com – your one-stop shop for articles, advice and reviews about everything you need for your four-legged friends. We’re passionate about dogs and want to help you make the best decisions about everything you need to keep your pet happy and healthy.
What does Your Pooch Need?
Dogs are called ‘man’s best friend’ for a reason. You meet few people in your life who will love you as completely and as unconditionally as a dog will. And, in return, it is your responsibility to provide them with the best possible love and care. The essentials of dog ownership are:
- Love, affection and attention
- A well balanced and nutritional diet
- A warm, dry place to sleep
- Regular exercise
- Space to run and play during the day
- Training around your expectations of the dog
- Challenge and stimulation
- Regular vaccinations and flea and worm treatments
- Lots and lots of water!
That’s all quite a lot to think about but don’t go “barking mad” just yet! We’re here to help you set up the perfect environment for your pet without getting ripped off! Here are just a few examples of what Hello Sausage has to offer:
Setting up for Your New Pup
If you’re a first time pet owner, setting up your home for your new arrival can be a real challenge. There are so many products out there and every company is trying to tell you that theirs is an absolute must-have for pet owners. It’s hard to know which products you ACTUALLY need and which are just gimmicks. We have reviews of hundreds of initial pet products; from pet food containers to pet grooming clippers so that you can make informed decisions about the ideal pet products for the new addition to your family.
Diet and Exercise
A well cared for pet will be a happy and healthy pet. The love and companionship you get back for providing the necessities to your dog can not be measured. We’ve got articles and reviews on dogs’ nutritional needs and the best products to provide them. Try and balance the diet with a mixture of wet food and kibble and alternate the flavors you provide. After all, do you like to eat the same old food day after day? Investing in quality dog food can actually save you money in vet bills further down the track. Check out our dog food reviews to make wise choices about your dog’s diet.
Exercise goes hand in hand with diet and we also look at a wide range of leashes, puppy playpens and even wireless pet fences so that your pup can free range in the yard. If you’re out at work all day and your dog is in the yard they can get bored easily and this can lead to destructive behaviour or barking and howling which will make you VERY unpopular with the neighbours. Dog toys can be a great way to provide stimulation and challenge when your dog is left to his own devices and we’ve got some great recommendations of entertaining and durable dog toys.
Pampered Pets & Decor
For those of you with quirky style and pampered pets, we have a few off-the-wall product reviews. Check out everything from pet halloween costumes to dog strollers. If you want to keep your pooch off your lounge suite but still provide them with a little luxury and comfort, check out our reviews of funky dog furniture. On the same note, there’s nothing worse than a car seat covered with dog hair, so before you take Fido to the beach or the park, why not check out our reviews of pet car seat covers.
Heading Across Country or Abroad with Your Pet?
If you’re on the move and need to transport your pet by airplane, we can help you choose an airline approved pet carrier to suit your cat or dog. The airlines have very strict specifications for pet transport and we have reviews of pet crates for small dogs, pet crates for large dogs and airline pet crates for cats. It would be terrible to turn up at the airport only to find that your beloved pet is not allowed to travel in the crate you’ve bought. Make sure you’re in the know about the specs for your airline.
