The winter/spring issue is devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself pet care – just the thing for pet parents who’ve pondered letting the pros handle it or taking matters into their own capable hands. Writer Steve Lowery turns to the experts to learn how to properly implement tasks such as dog baths, maintaining your carpet and furniture upholstery after a pet “accident” and even how to concoct a delicious homemade treat – all without turning your home upside-down.

A Leg Up For Your Pet

Does your pet need a helping paw? Pet Ramps USA has just the thing for the small, elderly or post-surgery pet that has trouble accessing high places like your bed, the car or the sofa.

Sit! Stay! Say ‘Cheese!’

The cajoling, the firm commands to “Sit!” and the toy-waggling – anything to make your pet hold that pose while you maneuver your camera to capture the perfect shot! If you’re a pet owner, you know how challenging it can be to get a beloved pet to sit still when their mind is on anything but obliging you. We got some tips for the photographically inclined from Chicago-based photographer David Sutton, the creative mind behind the annual Dog Days calendar.
