Cons to Online Shopping With Your Pet:
- When he sees all the neat collars that are out there, he may want a different one for every day of the week.
- Suddenly that new toy he got yesterday will be destroyed in an instant so that he NEEDS a new one.
- Shipping costs.....need I really say more?
- No other dog butts to sniff while shopping.
- Not burning any calories shopping from the couch.
- Can be difficult to figure out correct sizes for collars and clothing.
Pros to Online Shopping With Your Pet:
- A LOT of eco-friendly and earth conscious companies and products to choose from.
- No stopping in every aisle to sniff things (or making attempts to mark territory).
- Free AND fast shipping on many sites, (especially Amazon, if you are an Amazon Prime member).
- If you see a product another dog owner has, you can order it right away online with your smartphone.
- Less likely to buy other things you don't need....like those fancy dog treats sitting at the register.
- You get to see product reviews from real dog owners.
- MOST sites offer hassle-free return options.
- Get exactly what you want; correct size, color, and design.
- Who doesn't love getting mail and seeing the mailman?
- Get handmade, unique and personalized items from mom and pop companies that have an online presence. (Etsy.com is a great place to start).

Also, as a part of the Amazon affiliates program, Pupcycled is pleased to now offer the ability to find our favorite products on Amazon directly through the Pucycled site (see right side of page). The Featured Fridays link at the top of the page will also help you find more websites for earth-friendly products. My opinions about Amazon and other websites (and the products they offer) are my own and come from years of shopping online and using the products myself. None of the suggestions are posted by paid promotions through vendors/companies. If there are more great earth-friendly products out there for dog owners, Pupcycled would love to know through your comments OR email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
