---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

How to Pick a Puppy

A great deal of reading, questioning and investigating upfront will make life much easier in the future with your new puppy

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Your dog will be your constant companion, friend and dependent for 10-15 years or even longer so it makes sense to select a puppy carefully.  It is not unusual for 6-12 months to elapse between the time you decide to get a puppy to the time you actually bring one home. 

The one thing to avoid is the impulse adoption especially with the children in tow.  If you're just starting to consider adopting a puppy then going to the Saturday morning pet adoption at the local superstore or spending a day at the local humane shelter is the worst possible idea.  The lure of the dominant, fuzzy puppy who seeks out your lap and gazes into your eyes is too much for most of us to resist.  Resist the temptation and go head instead to your local library

Here are some basic steps that will help you to make the best choice.

1. If you haven't had a dog before, considering spending time at a dog park and asking questions of the owners.  You can see a wide variety of dogs of all different ages and any owner who takes the time to go to a dog park is likely to quite knowledgeable.  Most people are happy to talk your ear off about their own experiences.

2. Should you decide on a purebred, crossbreed or mixed breed? 

3. Who are you really and what do you really, really want?  If you are very specific and honest about your lifestyle then you can select a puppy that will fit that lifestyle.  If, for example, you admire how brilliant and energetic border collies are but you live in a small apartment and are gone most of the time then a border collie will create any number of problems for you. 

4. Decide on a specific breed or type of puppy:
USA: American Kennel Club
UK: The Kennel Club

5. 
Find a good breeder, shelter, rescue organization or internet source but be careful, ask tons of questions and get recommendations whenever possible.

6. Be prepared to be patient and do a great deal of reading.  It can really take a long time to find just the right dog for your family but it really is worth the trouble.
