Pets bring us a very special brand of fun, lifelong companionship, and endearing moments. Their love and devotion can mean a fuller, happier life. But with the decision to have a pet comes a high degree of responsibility. English bulldog lovers who want to bring a new pet into their home will need a plan that will maximize success.
Think of the tools and supplies you will need to be a good dog parent, including the right diet, a comfortable place to sleep, and a strong, easy-to-use leash. But also consider tech tools like mobile apps.
As you prepare your app toolbox, are your phone and internet connection up to the task? Your device must be powerful enough and provide enough memory to handle the latest apps for dog parents. If you need a more powerful phone, upgrading is an option. Newer-model phones have every feature you need to assist in your journey as a dog owner. If you have a spotty internet connection, you can upgrade that as well. Look for fast wireless home internet service with powerful bandwidth so you can run and download these apps effectively.
Also, think about picking up a phone charger for your car, especially if you tend to run a lot of errands. Car chargers allow you to quickly and easily power your phone when you’re away from home. If you forget to charge your phone before you head out, these can be lifesavers!
Thankfully, there is an app to help you along with whatever comes your and Fido’s way. From determining whether your new furry friend needs a trip to the vet to finding the next sweater for chilly walks, there’s an app you can use!
Pet First Aid by American Red Cross
This app includes helpful medical advice relating to your pup with a feature that stores your vet’s info so it’s always readily available. Beyond all that, Modern Dog Magazine explains that through videos, quizzes, and straightforward advice, Pet First Aid by American Red Cross teaches you things like how to gauge what’s normal and what to do if your pet has allergies or even more serious conditions like blood sugar emergencies and breathing problems.
This app is a gold mine of information that can even help to save your pet’s life. For new and seasoned pet owners alike, Pet First Aid can assist you in being prepared for whatever comes your way, including how to deal with finding your pup if he gets lost.
