Why You Should Order Pet Supplies Online

In this article, I will cover why you should order pet supplies online. Unlike a lot of dog owners, I am retired & don’t work a full-time job. I have 2 awesome dogs who depend on me for their food, nutrition, medical attention—this just some of everything that goes with being a blessed dog owner. Buying a lot of dog food is a necessity of owning a dog. Until recently, I realized how much easier my life could be if I would just order those items online. Here are the benefits of ordering your pet supplies online that I have found. I’ll never go back to doing things the old way.

1st Benefit of Internet Ordering: More Time with Your Dog

Time is precious. I will even go so far as to say that time is the most valuable commodity we have. Time is a gift from God. The past is gone. The future is not promised or guaranteed  & the present is a gift hence the words THE PRESENT! So one of the 1st of 6 benefits of ordering pet supplies online is saving time.  As dog owners, we all want to spend as much time as we can with our dogs. Instead of driving around and running errands, you can spend your time at the dog park, going for walks and hikes are healthy activities for you. After a walk, you can spend the rest of your time just laying around the house. Maybe watching a movie or reality shows with your dogs. We all know how much dogs love watching 90 Day Fiancé, right?

2nd Benefit of Web Ordering: Save Gas & Mileage

Gas is expensive. Who doesn’t love saving money on gas? Ordering online means you’ll put fewer miles on your car. You won’t have to get a tune-up as soon as you would if you were driving around picking up dog food & pet supplies. Not to mention, every time you get in the car, you put your life at risk. You may be the best driver globally, but face it, there are many crazy drivers on the road these days. Honestly, I prefer not to drive unless necessary.

3rd Benefit of Cyber Ordering: Convenience

I’m sure you have experienced when buying dog food,  that those bags are heavy. Suppose you are disabled (like me), or older, or just tired from a long day or week of work. The last thing you want to do is lug one of those big old’ bags of dog food out to the car from the store. Then back into your house when you get home. Of course, you could always make homemade dog food. It’s so much more convenient to wake up and have a huge bag of dog food sitting on my doorstep. If you know how much dog food your dogs eat each month, you can even set up a recurring delivery via Amazon or Chewy.com  (which I use from my website petloversnewsletter.com and have it delivered each month automatically.

4th Benefit of ordering from the Cloud: Variety

There are many foods, treats,& toys out there, and to be honest, no one store can carry them all. I’ve found that it is fun to order pet supplies online. For example, I  discovered things I had never seen in my local dog store just looking online. I’ve had people reach out to me on my Facebook page Pet lovers newsletter Facebook page or here on my blog asking where they can find a specific dog food that they have not been able to find in their local pet store, and I always direct them to Amazon.com 1st & then Chewy.com  2nd. I’m not a spokesperson for Amazon or Chewy.com, but they have a wide variety & they have everything. If you are a Prime member of Amazon, they’ll deliver to your door for free.

5th Benefit Of Web-Based Ordering: Gifting and Donating

Sometimes it’s nice to send a bag of food or other dog essentials to a friend or family member. At some point in life, we all could use a helping hand, especially if we are going through a difficult time. Maybe they recently had a baby, and their hands are full. They might be ill and having medical difficulties. Possibly, they are just older, and you want to help them out. When you order pet supplies online, you can ship it to anyone, anywhere, and attach a little note. It’s a nice gesture to let them know you’re thinking of them. You can also send a bag of dog food to your favorite rescue group or shelter and other pet supplies. You can do all this without ever leaving your dog home alone.

6th Benefit of Online Ordering: It’s Safer

Last but certainly not least, it is just plain safer for you & your Dogs. The world changed forever when the Corona Virus was introduced into Society. By ordering your pet supplies online & having them delivered to your door, you don’t have to risk your life. You don’t have to have any contact with anyone in public.

So, are you a dog owner? Maybe you are thinking of adopting a pet but aren’t sure you can handle pet ownership’s added responsibility. I highly recommend doing some research and seeing how many of the pet supplies you can have delivered to your home. It’s always good to compare prices and add up the benefits vs. the cost of running around town. Either way, make sure it’s the right choice for you.

I’ve gone into the online world of ordering pet supplies. I’m never going back. Now that you know the benefits of ordering your pet supplies online, What Are You Going to Do?
