5 Tips for Dog Parents During National Walk Your Dog Week

5 Dog Walking Tips for National Walk Your Dog Week

Growing up, I never had any pets. They were strictly forbidden in our house because my parents couldn't stand the thought of animal hair in the house.

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Litter Genie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #petparents http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV.
