Costco Canada: $20 Off PetDek – Now $90 (Was $110)

Posted by on March 17, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Costco Canada: $20 Off PetDek   Now $90 (Was $110)

Do you have a dog or do you often haul stuff in your backseat? Then have a look at the PetDek, especially since Costco currently has a great deal on it. For a limited time, you can save $20 on the PetDek and get it for just $89.99 instead of $109.99.

Dubbed the “A Car Space Pet Place”, the PetDek converts the backseat of any car into a more functional space for either dogs or the transportation of items, such as those pictured on the banner above.

Even at full price, Costco’s price on the PetDek is still much better than its competitors considering both Amazon.com and PetDek‘s own site sells it for $129.95, though the former lists its regular price at $175.43. In fact, here’s what one reviewer had to say about this handy product on Amazon:

I really like my PetDek. It works just as it was stated. very easy to put in and remove. Really saves my leather seats and provides a stable place for my dogs to ride. I have found it handy to have in the back seat during the garden season hauling plants and soil. It does not work in the back of my husbands truck though. He is a tall man and has to have his seat back all the way. That doesn’t allow for the PetDek. Wish it was somehow adjustable for seat width.

For anyone considering this product, I would definitely recommend taking a look at PetDek’s list of advantages. One of the advantages listed is that it can be used in miscellaneous ways, such as for the transportation of baked goods, and I have to admit that I didn’t even think of that but for anyone who bakes or even cooks a lot in their spare time for family gatherings, this would definitely be a great investment! Heck, I could even see myself using this to bring groceries from Costco home since those boxes they provide tend to be too large for my car’s small trunk. Plus, once you’re done with the PetDek, it can easily be folded and stored away.

Shipping is also absolutely free.

How To Pick The Right Dog Food For Your Budget

Posted by on March 2, 2014 at 8:00 PM

How To Pick The Right Dog Food For Your Budget

I recently wrote an article about saving money on your new animal, and one of the items I wrote about was to consider the type of food you are feeding your dog.  We received lots of commentary about that article.  Bargainmoosers are passionate about their animals, awesome!   We all love our dogs, and we want to provide them with the best possible life.  Food is a huge contributor to that.  It just makes sense that the better you feed your dog, the healthier they *should* be.  Of course there are factors that we can’t control, like some breed-specific physical issues like hip dysplasia in some giant breeds of dogs.   But food is one area we have complete control over.

We have been very fortunate with our dog. He is nearly 10, and he is still very active and healthy.   I have always regularly run with him.   He trained for my half marathon with me last year, and he actually ran 21 kilometres!  Rocky is an amazing dog, and we want him to live a long, long time.  What things should we consider when picking the dog food for our precious pup?

Ratings

I found an amazing website called Dog food advisor, which has comprehensive ratings of each type of dog food available in Canada.  Foods are listed by type:  hypoallergenic, raw, high carb, low carb, etc.  Talk to your veterinarian to figure out which food is best for your dog, given his/her breed, health, and activity level.  Then you need to consider the cost of each type of food.

Research

I learned through researching this article, that Canada does not regulate pet food that is manufactured in Canada and sold domestically.  What this means to us, the consumer, is we need to do our own research.  Bargainmooser CeeCee told us that there is an organization called Association of American Feed Control Officials, or aafco, which is a voluntary organization designed to regulate the sale of animal food in the U.S.  The good news for us is that there are some foods in Canada which carry the AAFCO label.  Keep your eyes open for this in the pet store, or when you’re conducting online research on the food you are feeding your pup.

What fits with your lifestyle?

Although I’d love to consider feeding my dog a raw diet, I think it would be difficult to fit that into our lifestyle.   I know that lots of people do it successfully; I feel that for my family it isn’t a realistic option given that it requires time in the procurement,  the preparation and storage of the food.  Check out this article from Dog Food Advisor about the benefits and risks of the raw food diet.  I have a co-worker who feeds her dogs the raw food diet, and unfortunately, one of her dogs (a beautiful great dane) passed away because he choked on a bone fragment that got lodged in his trachea.  My friend was beyond sad about the loss of her dog, but she still believes in the benefits of a raw food diet.  She now feeds her 2 dogs a raw food diet, and says that she spends about $200 per month for her food.  Additionally, she has to drive to a nearby city to pick up the food, which is an hour drive, both ways.   If you live in a larger city centre, there is greater certainty that there will be a local raw food supplier.  The costs of raw food will depend on the size of your dog and the growth stage in which s/he is at. For example, my friend feeds both her dogs about a pound and a half of raw food a day: a mix of chicken carcass and veggies and fruits.  Her great dane will continually eat that volume of food, but her puppy’s food amount will decrease as she gets older.  My friend’s costs will then therefore decrease.  There are different forms in which to purchase the raw food.  Some suppliers put the food into “pucks” which are frozen, and you de-thaw and feed your dog the appropriate number of pucks per day.   Maybe it’s easier than I initially thought!

Cost

As much as we would each love to feed our dog the best food possible, we also have to be cognizant of our budgets.  Check out as many ratings as possible about the food you are considering, and choose the highest quality food that your budget will allow.  Don’t skimp on food, the better-quality food your dog gets now, the more likely s/he will grow to be healthy and fit in their older age, hopefully reducing your veterinary bills.

Dog food is one of the most expensive parts of owning a dog.  It is an essential part of your dog’s life, and we all want to provide the best of the best for our fur babies.  Do your research, examine your budget, and ensure you choose the best possible food that you can afford.  Don’t forget to ask your friends for referrals of dog food providers, and remember that many pet stores will offer coupons and frequent customer discounts if you ask.

How To Save Money On A New Animal

Posted by on February 24, 2014 at 8:00 PM

How To Save Money On A New Animal

We’re thinking of getting a new dog in the spring.  Our current dog is nearly 10, and we know he won’t be around forever, unfortunately.  I have always wanted a second dog, but we could never decide on breed, whether our second dog should be hypoallergenic, etc.  I was also nervous about the prospect of introducing a new dog to our existing dog, I wasn’t sure how they would get along.  Our first dog is a mix breed who we rescued when he was 8 weeks old, and he is a very dominant animal.  Fortunately, we had the privilege of babysitting a friend’s dog over Christmas, and it went great.  I warned my friend about my dog’s dominance and that I wasn’t sure how they would get along.  But I was pleasantly surprised at how well the dogs got along.  My husband took them into the woods together, and they romped and played together like nobody’s business.  I would like my firstborn doggy to have that companionship all the time.  After reading this article on if we can afford a pet, I decided we could, with a few cost-saving tactics in mind. With that being said, we’re looking at our best options for adopting a second dog, and we’re trying to do so in the most cost-effective way.

Breeder vs. adoption

We have toyed with the idea of looking for a specific blend of characteristics in our next dog, such as family-friendly and hypoallergenic.  We adopted our first dog from a rescue organization that rescues dogs from local native reserves.  A bred dog can be extremely costly, especially if you are looking at one specific breed that might not have a breeder close to your home base.  As an example, we were thinking about our second dog being a schnauzer, but the closest breeder to us is a nearly 2 hour drive away.  We would be spending money on gas to get to and from the breeder, and if there were any future issues with the dog, it would be costly and a hassle to rectify them due to the distance.  A dog from that breeder would cost us approximately $1000.  Conversely, there are some amazing rescue groups in our hometown, such as the one we adopted our first dog from.   Adoption fees vary from $200-$500, depending on the organization we go with.  Most of my friends’ dogs have been adopted too, so we have had lots of good referrals from people.  Another option is to buy an older dog from a breeder.  These dogs generally have been taken care of from the breeder, but they have had their litters, and are ready to move on to a forever home.  We have found those dogs to cost about half the cost of a puppy, and they are already trained.  There is also the ethical issue of paying for a bred dog, when there are literally thousands of local animals who need (and deserve) to be adopted.   Check out petfinder.com for lots of adoptable animals to choose from!

What to feed your dog

To be honest, before we had kids, we spent a lot of money on dog food.  We used to spend upwards of $80-$100 per month on either raw or organic food for our pup.  Once our kids came along, though, our finances became strained, and we had to make decision on what to spend our money on.  We just didn’t have $100 per month to spend on dog food any longer.  We have moved to either President’s choice nutrition first dog food or Costco’s Kirkland brand of dog food.  Although they aren’t as nutritionally sound as raw food, they both score a 4 star rating according to Dogfoodadvisor.com.  Since the switch, we spend about $30/month on dog food for our pup.  He is a large, active dog, so he eats around 4 cups of food per day.  Your dog food costs will range based on the size, breed, and activity level of your dog.

Invest in training

The very best item we invested in for our dog was puppy training.  Our trainer is amazing, her company is called Awesome Dogs.   Although we spent money on this service, it has truly been a long-term investment for us.  By properly training your dog you will be saving money on potential longer term issues and problems such as your dog acting out and destroying items in your house.  Also, people will be much more likely to volunteer to look after your dog when you go away if your dog is well-trained.  You are also lessening the chance of your dog causing potential legal issues for you, such as dog bites, if s/he is trained.

Borrow if you can

Remember that you don’t have to purchase all your pet items first-hand, in fact, you don’t even have to pay for them, if you can help it!  Ask around, it’s likely that a friend has a crate you could borrow, and maybe even an old dog bed they no longer use.  We lent our friend our dog’s old crate, and it has worked out well for everyone.  If you can’t get pet items free, look on kijiji.  We recently bought a very large fish tank, which came fully equipped with a stand, filter, light, and everything we could possibly need for our new fish menagerie.

Find a good veterinarian

Finding a good veterinarian is so essential for saving money on your new pet.  If you find a good vet who will partner with you in caring for your beloved pet, it’s likely you will save money on your vet bills.  For example, by establishing a good relationship with our vet, he was able to give us a few options recently for caring for our dog’s cyst on his neck.  We didn’t have thousands to pay for an expensive surgery, so he recommended a topical treatment that worked like a charm, and cost a fraction of what surgery would have cost.  Check out this article on reducing your vet bills for more ways to reduce your vet costs.

Pets are expensive, but they are so worth it.  Your canine or feline friend will be with you (hopefully) for a long period of time, make wise choices to reduce your costs, but make sure you spend money where you need to.  See your vet on a yearly basis, and if you feel comfortable with it, purchase pet insurance for peace of mind.

How do you save costs on your pet costs, Bargainmoosers?

Can You Afford a Pet?

Posted by on December 10, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Can You Afford a Pet?

It is the time of year where people want to make others happy by buying them unique gifts. Pets seem to be one of those gifts people think others want. Being a sort of animal activist, I have to stress that getting someone else a pet is not a gift. Unless you absolutely know the pet is wanted, do not get someone else an animal to take care of. This includes your children, who will probably not do the work, so if you aren’t doing the work and paying the expenses, don’t get someone else a pet as a gift. Most shelters and rescue groups will not even adopt animals out before Christmas for the simple reason that they are not a gift that should be returned.

If knowing all this, you have decided a pet is in the cards for your family this Christmas, lets talk about if you can afford a new pet. Animals are expensive, more expensive than you’d think and everyone should be aware of this. I had a friend who was stressing about getting a dog because she thought the asking price was high. I remember telling her that the cost of buying the animal is just a drop in the bucket compared to what you’ll spend over the next 10+ years. In eight short years I spend tens of thousands of dollars on a dog I got as a puppy because of the many health issues she had. Are you prepared for that?

Obviously different pets cost different amounts. Maybe you’ve decided you want a pet, but want to find out which is the cheapest.

Fish & Other Swimmers

I say other swimmers here because I have two African Dwarf frogs who swim only. These frogs were a gift from my well-meaning mother, but only for me to find out that they live over 20 years. My kids will be in university before these frogs die and I will still be taking care of them. The cost seemed minimal at first, a small container, a few pellets a day, until I did my research to find out that the frogs needed more. Now while the initial cost of your swimmers/fish will be minimal depending on which ones you buy, there is much more to it.

Initial Cost - $1 – $100s depending on type

Shelter – tanks can be expensive, plus all of the equipment needed. Walmart sells small tanks starting at $40, but you can spend thousands the larger you go. Add in the cost of filters, starting at $15 and needing replacement pads every month. You can also add in rocks and other adornments.

Food - My frogs eat bloodworms, which cost about $5 a month, but you can probably get pellets and other fish food for about $5 a month or less.

Vet bills - Most likely if your fish is sick, you won’t really know it and I don’t know many aquatic vets. If your tank is sick, that’s another story and could cost you upwards of $50 finding solutions to why your tank is acting the way it is.

Rodents

My son is always asking for a guinea pig, but with frogs, two cats and a dog, I think our home is full enough of animals.

Initial cost - Depending on if you are ok with just a mouse, which you can get for as low as $5 or you want a skinny pig for $75, your cost will vary. You can also check out the humane society, who will often have rodents for adoption for a small fee.

Shelter - You’ll need a cage, a water feeder and a dish plus bedding that will need to be changed frequently. These items will initially run you about $30 and up from there because you’ll also want to give the rodent exercise like a wheel or one of those critter trails. Your starting cost will probably be at least $50 and then about $5 a month for the bedding.

Food - Your rodent can eat items you get from the grocery store or get rodent food, which will probably cost about $20 a month.

Vet bills - This is where it gets tricky. While it is easy to find vets for dogs and cats, small animal vets are harder to find and therefore will probably charge more. You won’t have to go as often as you would with a dog or cat as they don’t have vaccines and general wellness visits, but if something goes wrong, you could be looking at a few hundred dollars minimum for something minor.

Reptiles

My family and I had many a reptile over the years. From bearded dragons to full-size iguanas, we’ve had them. They do make a great pet and are more exotic, but you need to be prepared for their cost.

Initial cost - Again this will vary depending on what kind of reptile you get, as low as $10 to up to $200.

Shelter - You’ll need a cage for your reptile, but you’ll also need heat. Many of these reptiles are cold-blooded and need special lights and/or rocks to lay on or they will die. Add to this the increased hydro bills you’ll be paying to keep their areas well-heated. My family actually built a huge wall cage for our iguanas, and this could save you some money. Check out the Reptile Ranger for instructions to do one yourself. This will not be that cheap with all materials, probably coming in at about $100-$200.

Food - Reptiles eat many different things, like crickets, fresh greens and more. Sometimes you also have to give vitamin drops too. Fresh stuff like this could get expensive, although not anywhere comparable to a dog or cat. Count on $5 a week.

Vet bills - Here you will run into the same problem of having to locate a small animal veterinarian, and your bills could be high if something is wrong.

Cats

I’ve had two cats for almost 15 years now and find them to be an enjoyable and easier pet than a dog to take care of. But their bills can add up.

Initial cost - My cats were kittens that I adopted, one with a small fee, one that was free. There are so many homeless cats out there, including kittens, that I don’t get why anyone would pay a certain amount of money for a purebred cat. Cats are not like dogs with certain characteristics based on breed (well I’m sure they somewhat are), but a cat is mostly a cat – similar in size and their temperaments can vary greatly. Adopting a cat or kitten is definitely the most affordable option, with it being anywhere from $20 – $100.

Shelter - Cats are probably the cheapest when it comes to shelter, needing only a litter box, which can cost as low as $2. You can buy a cat a bed, but most times it is almost happier lying in a box.

Food - Generally cats eat cat food, wet and/or dry and cat treats. You can also buy catnip as a treat, which is affordable and you can even grow it yourself. Cat food costs about $20 a month for a good-quality food per cat for dry food.

Vet bills - Vet bills will all depend on the cat’s health throughout his/her life. You will want to vaccinate your cat, especially if it will be going outside, although an indoor cat will need less vaccinations and sometimes people will only give it the Rabies shot if it will never be outside. The Rabies vaccine is about $50 every three years now. The other vaccinations and initial vet visits for a kitten will probably cost about $200 – $300. You should also always sterilize your cat and this cost will depend on the clinic but ranges from $150 to $300.

Other - I had to add other here to cats because my cats haven’t cost me much in terms of vet bills or food, but instead in ruined items. One of my cats has a little bit of urination issue because the dog and the kids stress her out. I’ve had to replace a couch, a mattress and numerous pillows and blankets, plus two wall-to-wall carpets. Obviously this has equalled thousands. Cats are known to ruin items with scratching too, so be prepared for these added expenses. There is a pheromone spray or plug-in called Feliway, that is known to help, and I’ve tried it, but it comes in at about $25 a month or $45 for the can.

Dogs

I love having a dog and will always have one, but I’m going to say they are the biggest expense of any animal.

Initial cost - If you are looking for a purebred dog, you should not answer ads on kijiji for purebreds for $300. Most times these are backyard breeders who have not done the research into how to breed the animal and are only looking to make a quick buck. This may sound like a great idea at the time, but remember my story about tens of thousands of dollars in vet bills? That’s what happens when you get a dog from an unrepeatable source. Mine was from a pet store where animals are notoriously bred in puppy mills. If you want a purebred you should find a breeder who has a good reputation, or adopt one from an all-breed rescue. In the case of a bred puppy, consider yourself down $1000 – $2000 on the spot. If you’d rather adopt, the fees for that vary but normally come in around $250-$400. Check the CKC for information about what you should look for in a breeder.

Shelter - Dogs need quite a few items in the beginning like a bed (unless you want them on the couch), a leash and collar, a crate and chew toys. Budget yourself at least $200 for these items. Then consider that a puppy or dog with separation anxiety will no doubt chew many of these items and you will have to replace them. My dog wears a special harness so she doesn’t pull and we’ve gone through six of them for various reasons at $30 each.

Food - A good quality food will depend on the size of your dog. My dog is medium-sized and I spend about $40 – $50 a month on her food, plus treats and chew treats.

Vet bills - Just like a cat, a dog will need vaccinations and sterilization. This will be about $500 for the first year then another $100 a year after that or more. Consider getting pet insurance, which varies depending on breed, but is generally about $25 a month or saving a few hundred dollars a year in case of accidents or illness. Many dogs will also need grooming and nail trims, so budget this as well depending on your animal’s fur type. I spend about $10 every two months on nail trims, but you could do it yourself and spend $15 on a nail cutter instead (I’m too nervous).

Other - Dogs are notorious for wrecking things. Just YouTube dogs wrecking stuff and you’ll lots of videos. My dog has eaten a number of toys, shoes, bedding and even my son’s mattress. This stuff sometimes needs to be replaced and sometimes doesn’t, but this cost can add up. You should also consider dog training, which is about $100 for six lessons at somewhere like Petsmart, and goes up from there depending on how far you want to go.

So, Bargainmoosers, had you considered all the expenses that go along with getting a pet?

Petcetera Canada: Spend $50 & Get $25 Gift Card

Posted by on November 18, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Petcetera Canada: Spend $50 & Get $25 Gift Card

One of my favourite promotions is back on at Petcetera Canada right now.  When you spend $50 or more on almost anything, you will get a free $25 gift card for your next purchase!

This deal excludes the purchase of gift cards, services or adoptions, but anything else you buy will get you this free gift card.

I have said many times in the past that this is one of my favourite promotions, because we have two big dogs and pets can be quite expensive.  I take advantage of this promotion every single time it happens and save up the gift cards and use them all at once.  Since they have no expiry date, I wait until we really need something for the dogs or when their food goes on sale, and stock up on it.

The best way to take advantage of this promotion is to split up your purchases.  If you are planning on spending more than $100, it is best to either split your purchases up into $50 purchases to get a gift card with each purchase, or to head in a few times during this week to get more than one gift card.  Some locations will allow you to split your order and pay separately but some will not, it is the luck of the draw I guess.

The only exclusions for this deal is that the total cannot include of gift cards, adoptions and services such as grooming.

There will be no expiry date or minimum purchase for the gift card so you can save it and use it on whatever you would like. We always grab our dog food when this event comes on and we save our gift cards and use them all at once.  Once we save even just a couple of them, we end up using them towards free dog food or toys. Since the gift cards are treated like money, you can stack them, saving you a ton if you use them all at once like I do!

Just a heads-up that Petcetera is now offering coupon codes for online shopping.  If you would like to see all of the current coupons, you will find them on the forum under Petcetera Coupon Codes.

Wagjag Canada: $29 For 10 Bags Purina Busy Chewnola Dog Treats & $10 Well.ca Gift Card

I am really excited about the deal that Wagjag Canada has on right now, because it pairs two of my favourite things.  It pairs a great deal with something for my dogs. For a limited time only, you will be able to get ten packs of Purina Busy Chewnola dog treats and a Well.ca gift card for just $29.

The value of this deal is $76, so you will be saving 62% when you buy it through Wagjag Canada.  You will also get free shipping and it will be delivered right to your home.

Here is a little more about this deal:

  • Ten of the 113 g bags
  • Two chew treats per bag
  • Each treat is approx. 6×1 in.
  • Not suitable for puppies under one year of age or adult dogs less than 20 lbs
  • Bonus $10 Well.ca gift card (no minimum purchase, expires Aug. 31, 2013)

The cost of these treat bags is usually $5.50 a bag, so this is an incredible deal.  You will be able to get as many as you would like.

Petcetera: Save $25 On $100

Petcetera: Save $25 On $100

One of my favorite deals is back on for Petcetera, but this time there is a little twist.  When you spend $100 or more in purchases, you will save $25 on your total.

The reason this event has a little twist to it this time is that you do not need a coupon to get the deal.  Normally, you need to print off a coupon and bring it with you, but this time, your savings will be automatic at the checkout.

As always, this deal will not include adoptions or services.  I like to take advantage of this event when buying our dog food.  We have two big dogs and they have to eat a diet health food which can be quite pricey at times.  Saving $25 on our order at the checkout will be huge when we buy their special dog food.

This is also a great time to grab any big item purchases like kennels, bird cages, cat trees or aquariums that may cost $100 or more. If you get one of those items that cost around $100, you would basically be saving 25% with the $25 off at the till.
