                        12. PawsPlus

                          These are US based services, but you should check your favorite search engine for localized versions wherever you’re from. There are likely to be similar schemes.

                          13. DoggieBuddy

                            There are plenty of dog trick websites, and one great example is Doggie Buddy’s 52 Tricks To Teach Your Dog. This is an exhaustive list of new tricks which you can try and get your pet to obey – failing the more elaborate ones you can at least begin with “sit” and “stay”. A positive inauguration for any dog beast.

                            14. PetDiets

                              Aimed at cat and dog owners, this site offers information on healthy diets. Through Pet Diets you can also contact a nutritionist for further information. Very handy.

                                  17. Dog Shaming

                                    Dog Shaming became an online craze in 2013. It acted as a fun way for exasperated owners to showcase their pet’s embarrassing behaviour to the world, whilst connecting them with millions of like minded dog fans. Although most owners no doubt secretly adore their pet’s eccentricities, Dog Shaming (and its other versions) is a revealing insight into the arbitrary world of animal behavior.

                                    18. Exotic Animals

                                      If you’re thinking of making a home for an exotic pet, or if you need to re-home your hedgehog/bush baby/bobcat/blue whale, then Exotic Animals For Sale is for you.

With 1.1 thousand Facebook Likes the site is certainly a sound place to start.

                                      19. Wikipedia

                                        It may seem obvious, but Wikipedia is packed full of fundamental advice. As each page is edited individually, you’ll find information on pets from fellow enthusiasts, along with links to suitable websites. For instance, if you’d like a pet snake, you’ll find, “They require minimal space, as most common species do not exceed five feet (1.5 m) in length. Pet snakes can be fed relatively infrequently, usually once every 5 to 14 days”.

                                        20. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

                                          More commonly referred to as PETA, this organization promotes the well being of animals. You can support your pet, and help animals around the world, by signing up and getting involved.

                                          10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

                                          10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

                                          Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

                                          1. It burns more fat.

                                          Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

                                          Advertising

                                          2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

                                          Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

                                          3. It saves you money.

                                          Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

                                          4. It increases your immune system.

                                          Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

                                          5. It makes you face your fears head on.

                                          People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

                                          6. You will feel better in your clothes.

                                          When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

                                          7. You will embrace vulnerability.

                                          When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

                                          8. You will show the world the real you.

                                          Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

                                          9. You will have fun.

                                          Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

                                          10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

                                          Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

                                          What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
