Many of us are examining ways to save money due to the economy and while we are cutting costs in nearly every aspect of our spending, we may not be thinking about how to save when it comes to our dogs.
Barkonomics is a fun and easy book to read. The authors Paris Permenter and John Bigley have complied an insightful and helpful nuggets of over 300 money saving tips for dog owners who wish to be financial secure in caring for Fido.
Many of the tips are common sense but overlooked, as they are hidden costs that many of us don’t even realize is there.
Once such tip is the elimination of dematting fees I didn’t realize that groomers could charge up to 30% for doing something that costs you nothing by brushing your dog out every day.
I also like the easy to do recipes for making dry shampoo and flea preventative with stuff that is usually already in the home and isn’t toxic.
These authors know what they are talking about, as they have been one of the top Web’s dog sites as publishers of DogTipper.com and use the same information to care for their own dogs.
I am glad I had the opportunity to read this wonderfully eye-catching book and I say it is time for you to go fetch this book to add to your own library of must haves.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of Barkonomics to review with no other compensation. The opinion is mine alone and may differ from others who review this book.
Have a Chittering Good Day,
