Study after study confirms that pets are beneficial to your health and good health can reveal itself in glowing beauty. Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledges the benefits of pet ownership. According to its Web site, CDC.gov, “Pets can decrease your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels and feelings of loneliness. Pets can increase your opportunities for exercise and outdoor activities, and opportunities for socialization.”
So, if you – like many people – consider your pet a part of the family, you may want to include him or her in your holiday gift-giving.
LazyBonezz, the trend-setting pet furniture company known for sophisticated, top-quality designs you can find online has just announced the opening of its pop-up shop on November 30th in New York City.
The store marks the brand’s first stand-alone venture, and will feature 70 different styles of pet necessities including: beds, feeders, collars, harnesses and storage. The store will be the first to debut these new styles and will be the exclusive retailer through the holidays. Their variety of styles range in price from $9.99-$499 retail.
“Our designs are classic, cool and chic; the store will reflect just that. We are very excited to be creating a space for pets and pet lovers alike just in time for the holidays,” said Lorraine Gold, co-founder.
Adrienne Shamie added, “We noticed that the market was void of good quality, stylish pet products, so we created just that. Now we are excited that this store will feature all of the LazyBonezz designs.”
The 500 square foot, window storefront space will be housed on the ground floor at 114 West 26th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues in Manhattan. The shop will remain open through February and will offer free delivery within Manhattan for bed purchases. A holiday discount of 10% off all purchases will be offered through Christmas 2011. Those who don’t live in New York can visit www.LazyBonezz.com for all the same styles and 10 percent discount.
Presents for cats and dogs – tips:
Choose gifts that are safe. Be sure that there are no small parts that can be swallowed or ingested by your pet and become lodged in the esophagus, stomach or intestines. Stick with chew toys that are basically durable.
The most dangerous toys for cats involve ribbon, string and loose little parts that can get stuck in the intestines, often necessitating surgery. Surprise kitty with a new ball that’s too big to swallow, a stuffed catnip toy or the interactive cat dancer – and tons of play sessions together.
Practical gifts like beds, feeders, leashes are always appreciated by a pet owner.
