Which treats are best for dogs?

The best treats for dogs are treats that don't have too many calories or filler ingredients like corn syrup and artificial flavors. Look for treats that use real ingredients — a good rule of thumb is to only put treats in your cart that have ingredients you'd eat (although we don't encourage munching on your pup's treats). Check out our list of Grove members' favorite dog treats for some natural treat ideas. You can also feed your doggo a variety of low-calorie fruits and vegetables.

Here's a lil' list of dog-approved produce:

  • Apple slices without seeds
  • Blueberries
  • Bananas
  • Carrot chunks
  • Cucumber slices
  • Oranges
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Pineapples
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Watermelon without the seeds or rind

Are dogs eco-friendly?

Dogs are pretty eco-friendly creatures, but there's always room for improvement. Help your pup lead a more sustainable lifestyle by choosing eco-friendly dog products that are made from recycled plastic and have plastic-free or plastic waste–reducing packaging. You can also find dog food that's made from sustainable ingredients. Need some dog chow ideas? We rounded up a list of the best dog foods if you want to give 'em a gander.

Another way to lessen your BFF's carbon paw print is to change the way you pick up their poop. Instead of using plastic sacks to dispose of doggo doo doo, snag a box of compostable dog waste bags. They break down more quickly than regular plastic bags, which could help reduce the impact of plastic pollution

How do I adopt a dog?

You're thinking of adopting a dog. Congrats! Before you bring your new family member home, there are a few questions to consider. First, consider what type of dog you want. Puppy or adult? Big or small? Research dog breeds and see which type of breed best fits your lifestyle. Some breeds, like Tibetan mastiffs, need a ton of space to run around and as such, they won't be a very good choice for apartment dwellers. Labs are smaller and can live in apartments, but they need a lot of exercise — look at your schedule and decide how much time per day you'll be able to devote to walking your dog.

Next, take some time to consider where you want to get a dog from. There are plenty of dogs who need homes at animal shelters, but you can also check around your area to see if anyone has puppies in need of a good home. And if you're looking for a feline friend to add to your home, read our cat adoption guide for more tips.
