Is a Golden retriever the right dog breed for you?
Golden retrievers are a friendly, eager to please breed originally used in hunting game and fowl. They are intelligent and quick to learn, require a lot of exercise, and do best with rigorous training. They may do an “alarm bark,” but generally aren’t watch dogs. They require a lot of human attention and affection as well as mental stimulation and play to keep them happy. Grooming is generally straightforward.

What is a pet trust?
A pet trust is an amazing tool to use for those that are wanting the peace of mind in know that their pet(s) will be taken care of when you no longer can perform those duties. Reasons for which can include your death or a deterioration of your health.
The pet trust operates much like a trust for a human being. The trust will specify to great detail what the instructions are for care of a pet. The details that can be covered in a pet trust include:
-Identifying individuals to care for your pets when you no longer can. Another point to consider in this area is to identify a back up care giver for the pet in the event something should happen to the primary requested caregiver.
-Instructions for caring for your pet – such as dietary needs, feeding instructions, and grooming needs.
At Pets Best Insurance, we believe in bringing your dog (or any pet!) to work with you. Here are our Top 7 Reasons to Bring Your Dog to the Office.
1. They won’t be doing the potty dance waiting for you to get home.
2. You don’t have to pay for doggy day care.
3. You get a mental break and fresh air during their potty breaks (as long as you’re up wind).
4. They make awkward noises and instantly lighten the mood.
5. You can blame that smell on your dog.
6. Your boss just might through you a bone!
7. Need a smile, just look at their face.
