Oh! He is my baby. We keep him as a member of our family, and thus there is no discrimination shown at our home when it comes to pampering my Casper.” The Casper in question is a pet dog and this is not an exaggerated dialogue from any movie. However, a few questions would arise, at least in the minds of some people. Haven’t dogs and cats been pets for humans from time immemorial? Does considering them as pets in the first place and not family members, lessen their loyalty towards the owner?
These are valid questions, but the answer is simple. This new trend of humanising pets has been there for a while now, and it would be surprising that new and improved additions to the trend has flooded the market with luxury pet products. So much so that there is a neck-to-neck competition between them and human luxury items. However, it’s all up to you to decide if these things are actually a must for your pet.
