Where do you get your dog supplies? If you are like many people, you do some shopping online for dog beds, leashes, toys, car seats, and all the other things you may want for your dog or dogs. It’s more convenient — well, unless you happen to live right near a big box store for pets! But even then, there is so much variety online that you can get exactly what you want. If you live in a remote area or have small children (or puppies) that keep you home, online shopping is better too. I’ve used it a lot myself, getting many of my own dog supplies from eBay, Sitstay.com and a few other places.
So a while ago, I started another website, Online-Dog-Resources.Com. So far it’s mostly resources from eBay, organized into categories… It uses “datafeeds” from eBay, so the listings are current every time someone goes to a page. I used to be a librarian, and I do love to organize information! I include some tips for buying on eBay, such as how to register and get the hang of eBay, how to evaluate sellers, and more. It’s really amazing what you can find there. Often the prices are really low, though you do have to be a bit watchful.
I just mentioned Sitstay.com… it couldn’t be more different from eBay, and I like it a lot too. A family-run business in Nebraska, they carefully test every product they carry. There are discussion boards and some dog training articles written by one of the owners of the business, herself a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, as am I. So far, I only have one link to them over at my new site, to Clearance items at SitStay.com. A good place to start looking around!
I’m planning to add lots more resources, from a variety of online stores, over time.
To get to my new site, Online-Dog-Resources.Com, just click on the dog at the computer! I didn’t draw it… it’s clipart that I have the right to use, and every time I look at it, it makes me smile. I wonder which of my dogs will be the first to push me away from the computer and take over!
