New Book Helps Dog Lovers Save Money
Oct. 30, 2010 (Austin, TX)–Looking for ways to save money on your dog expenditures? The publishers of DogTipper.com, one of the web’s top sites for dog tips, have released a new book designed to help dog lovers put a leash on their expenditures. Barkonomics: Tips for Frugal Fidos (Riviera Books) takes a look at ways you can live frugally with your dog with over 300 tips, from obtaining your dog to food, fun, veterinary care and prescriptions, training, travel, and more.
“We’ve heard so many heartbreaking stories about pet lovers surrendering their dogs because of economic problems,” says co-author Paris Permenter. “At a time when everyone has a close eye on the family budget, we wanted to help people find ways to trim their dog expenditures regardless of their income level.”
Along the way, the husband-wife team of authors interviewed numerous experts in all areas of dog care for their ideas and tips on stretching those dog dollars. “We surveyed DogTipper.com readers to learn the ways they’d like to cut costs,” explains John Bigley. “Along with interviewing experts, we’ve talked with fellow dog lovers we found everywhere from dog festivals to dog parks to our local grocery store about how they’re making the most of their pet purchasing power.”
Barkonomics: Tips for Frugal Fidos retails for $9.95 and is available at Amazon.com. Twenty percent of the book’s proceeds will be donated to the pet non-profit selected each quarter by the readers of DogTipper.com.
