Preparing your dog for the newborn


Welcome

Hi, I’m Patrick Yates and I want to welcome you to the premier issue of Petland Magazine. My passion and love for pet’s goes way back to my childhood. Growing up, we were allowed to only own gerbils and fish due to my brother’s asthmatic conditions. Caring for these pets was so much fun and to this day remains some of my best childhood memories. I will never forget the day, as a young adult, when Alexis, a German shepherd puppy, came into my life. She taught me so many valuable lessons, including unconditional love, that my life would never be the same. This amazing relationship that was created between us was something I wanted my own children to experience. As a father of three I made sure my children always had pets in their lives to love and to care for. My passions lead me to opening a Petland store. I thought, what better way to make a positive difference in a child’s life? When you experience the joy that a child expresses when they get their first pet, you will understand why pet ownership has become such a passion for me. I have been supplying my clients and their families with healthy pets and the information necessary to enjoy their pet experience for more than 13 years. Now I am realizing my next big vision. To offer you a quarterly publication dedicated to helping people understand how to properly care for and raise a healthy pet. Petland Magazine is unlike any pet publication you will find. Whether you are a dog, cat, bird, reptile or small mammal pet owner, you will find a wealth of information regarding the best ways to care for and keep your pet healthy. I know firsthand the difficulties that pet owners go through today with all the information out there trying to tell you what is

best for your pet. There are so many new products, so many claims, just what is the right VACATIONING thing to do? Petland Magazine has assembled the finest contributors ranging from some Pets Top 10 Tips to making
