How to Solve Pet Waste Problems at Hotels, Rv Parks and Apartment Complexes

So how important are pets to people? A recent survey by revealed that fourteen percent of pet owners say that a community’s pet policy is the first thing they consider when visiting and selecting an apartment. “I love having a pet in my apartment because it feels more like home. The people in the entire building seem nicer and friendlier since the pets also brighten up the common areas,” a survey respondent commented.

APPMA; American Pet Products Manufactures Association reports that according to the 2007-2008 National Pet Owners Survey, 63% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 71.1 million homes. The survey goes on to say, in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted, 56% of U.S. households owned a pet as compared to 63% in 2006.

APPMA reports that 2008 Pet Product Trend has a Pets Welcome Policy in hotels across the country.
Many hotels are adopting pet friendly policies. Several chains have announced new pet-friendly policies that include everything from oversized pet pillows, plush doggie robes, to check-in gift packages that include a pet toy, dog treat, ID tag, bone and turn down treat. Some even have a licensed dog masseuse on staff.

Philip Emery, manufacture and owner of Gittalong Little Doggie, which manufactures Dog Waste Poop Bag Dispensers and All-In-One Pet Waste Stations adds, “Many people feel that pets are more than a part of the family — they are family. And that’s why dealing with pets not only in Apartments, Hotels, RV Parks or anywhere people might take their dogs became a mission for me and my company to deal with dog waste.” Philip Went on to say; “ Our company believes so strongly in keeping dogs welcomed in public places that we have made our units the lowest price on the market for All-In-One Dog Waste Stations and also have included a Lifetime Guarantee on all Poop Bag Dispensers which we feel makes our units one of the best on the market today.” To learn more about Gittalong Little Doggie, please visit:

Question by Maria: Need help figuring out Puppy Vaccinations; also, Neuter Reccomendations?
I bought a 3-month old Maltipoo (turns 4 months in April 3rd) and I’m looking at his vaccinations list.

In his papers, it says this about vaccines:

Vaccinated: 2/10/08
Vaccinated: 3/16/08

round/tape: 2/9/08”

I looked over the available vaccinations list, but the ones I see in there do not include DHLPP? It says DA2PP and DA2LPP. What does this mean? Is it the same? I’m assumming that what he has listed means that he already got his two series of shots; how many are there remaining?

I bought Insurance for him from PetPlan (maximum coverage), but I am aware it does not offer preventative care or spay/neuter procedures. I’m getting the rest of his vaccinations at his vet.

Also, at what age do you reccomend for me to neuter him? I know there’s a couple of low-cost neutering programs out there, so if you know about them it would be great. Not necessary though — I’ve already decided on a vet for him, so I’m just looking at other options.

Thanks! :)
Almost forgot! (Or ran out of space, either of the two)

How much does the procedure usually cost, and which company do you reccomend? I know there’s 24-hour-pet-watch, homeagain, ect… any experiences with these?
I’m really bad at additional details; I was asking about Microchipping! Oops! :)

Answer by Arei
I thiiiinnkkk there are 2 or 3 more of that first series shots remaining for your puppy. I think, I would ask your vet though.
