Big news! PupLife officially acquired Rover In Clover on Friday.
Rover In Clover was a competing site, carrying many (but not all) of the same products that we carry at PupLife.
We are really excited about the acquisition as it will bring some really cool new technology capabilities to PupLife. In other words, you'll see the same great products (actually more as we ramp up for the holidays), get better customer service, and best of all, get to try out some nifty new bells and whistles, making your shopping experience even better in the months ahead.
For Rover In Clover customers, this means an enormous expansion of outstanding products to choose from, and a larger customer service team to make your shopping experience better.
We welcome Rover In Clover customers to the PupLife family. Please browse our site (especially our amazing collection of Dog Collars, Dog Beds, Dog Tags, and Gifts For Dog Owners) to see what PupLife is all about.
Also, don't forget to check out our famous Dog Blog, Follow Us On Facebook and if you like getting first notice on cool products and sales, make sure to sign up for our Newsletter.

If you've placed an order at PupLife.com recently, you might have noticed something new - customer accounts.
PupLife customer accounts are very cool. You can now store and edit your existing addresses within your own account - which can help speed you through the checkout process on subsequent orders. Plus, you can always log in and check the status of past orders, as well as view a detailed account of your order history. This can be a real time saver and it also helps you remember information about orders (sizes on dog collars, harnesses, etc.) that you might have placed in the past. We're glad to offer this to our customers.
Setting up an account is easy. Place an order with a "Guest Log In" to start.
After your first order is complete you will be given the option to create an account associated with the information you provided with your order. You will be asked to then associate a password to protect your account. Please note that for your own privacy and security, we do not store credit card information. You will need to provide this every time you place an order. Again, this is for your own security.
On subsequent visits, you can simply click on the log in button on PupLife.com's top header.
Logging in from any page on the site allows you to quickly access all of your past order information and shipping addresses. This also will speed up your checkout process - since once you log in, this data is at the ready.
In the future, we hope to add more features such as this to enhance your PupLife experience. Suggestions or comments? Let us know!

According to a recent Pet Age article, there are growing concerns that Children May Be Losing Interest In Pet Ownership. The cause? A growing infatuation with electronic gadgets, toys and video games. Ken Jones, a media producer at Pet Life Radio, is investigating this growing trend and searching for ways to turn this around. In the article, Jones comments that "We all know that pet hobbies that involve the keeping, raising and breeding of animals is good for kids. It teaches responsibility, discipline and encourages learning."
As a web site that sells quality products for dogs and dog owners, we hope that this trend reverses - for a number of reasons. Obviously, as the songs goes, "the children are our future" and a dwindling dog ownership would be bad for dog supply retailers such as PupLife. Simply put, children are PupLife's future customers and it is in our best interest to keep them interested in pets.
However, the most important concern for us is that children will miss out on the joys that are unique to pet ownership. The comfort that a dog can offer a child that is feeling down, after a bad day or setback. A pet can cheer you up, give you strength and bring support. The laughter and excitement that comes with playing with a pet in the back yard is also irreplaceable. The licks on the face, the wags of the tail, and the snuggling that a dog can offer simply can't be replaced by a laptop, tablet, video game or electronic device.
Don't get us wrong. We love computers (we make our living on them) and we think that they electronic devices can have a central role in our lives. We can't imagine not working on a Macbook, playing on a PlayStation or checking emails on our iPhone. Tech gadgets are here to stay and they make our lives easier, and more fun. That's a good thing.
But technology can never, ever replace a dog and the love that only a four legged friend can bring. Children need this unconditional love and they amazing feeling that pet ownership brings. With that said, we'll log off the computer now and go play with our pets. If you agree, make sure to comment on this post and/or share it with your friends on Facebook or Twitter. And then give your pet a belly rub.
