Good, common sense measures that are easy (or more convenient) to overlook. I could write a book about the suggestions in #5, but I'll just remind folks that when you end up with a flea infestation it's going to cost hundreds of dollars and take a lot of chemicals to remedy.
Please don't use OTC flea products sold in grocers and pet shops. They can be very toxic to dogs, especially small breeds, and they can and do kill cats.

Best toy I've found, that keeps their breath fresh and teeth clean, is large-sized bones. It's recycling, because they come from processing plants and would otherwise have filled dumps. Plus as they chew them down, they're getting calcium too. Rubber toys are not sustainable, and instead of building a separate dog house, just let your pups inside. They'll be happier being with you!

Noted but do not want a biodegradable dog house! Recycled I understand but why would I want a dog house that would degrade? Personally my dogs don't need a dog house, they are part of the family and live inside with the rest of the family!
