Why a #RichellPet pet gate is the perfect fit.

RL logo_GREEN BLKWith the holidays right around the corner, the kitchen is bound to be even busier than usual. In our house, the kitchen is always the hub of activity. And with so many people visiting, and cooking, it’s not always the safest place for a dog!

However, Baby always wants to be right in the middle of it all. I can’t tell you all the close calls that have happened in the kitchen. From almost stepping on her, to dangerous things dropping next to her (chocolate, knives, etc), it is not the place we want her to be. For a long time we have wanted an attractive way to keep her out of the kitchen, luckily the Premium Plus Freestanding Pet Gate with Door exists!

We were really excited when the gate arrived. We couldn’t wait to get it set up and put it to use. Baby had other ideas though, she must have known somehow that this gate was going to keep her out of the kitchen. She made sure it wasn’t easy to open that box!

Of course, once she got off the box, she had to snoop around a bit. It was VERY easy to get set up, all that needed to be done was to add the legs (just a screwdriver did the trick)!

This gate is recommended for dogs between about 6 and 33 pounds. What we love about the gate is that you can configure it in different ways. The side panels of the gate lock into place, so you can easily adjust it to fit into different parts of your home.

Another awesome feature of the gate is that it has a door, making it easy for the humans (and dog if you want) to go in and out of the gate. We love this because there are times when nothing is happening in the kitchen other than visiting with people, so Baby can still easily be a part of that.

Baby isn’t in love with it, as you can see she likes to give us sad eyes when she has to be on the other side of the gate. We on the other hand can’t imagine life without it! It’s been so wonderful to have the peace of mind that comes from being able to keep Baby out of places we don’t want her to be. There are so many uses for a gate like this too, and the kitchen is just one of them.

Simplify your cleaning routine with Neato Robot Vacuums #NeatoBestPetVacuum

logoNeato Disclosure

Everyone who loves a pet knows that they aren’t always tidy. Let’s face it, pet hair and other pet messes means more cleaning. Of course we wouldn’t trade our pets for anything in the world, which is why I am excited to share the Neato Robot Vacuum with you today! This little robot is going to help you simplify your cleaning routine!

neatodog

This is my dream robot vacuum. Not only does is it the best for pets, it has so many other features, I can’t wait to try it for myself some day (just read the rave review Daily Tekk gave it)! The Neato Robot Vacuum is utilizing some neat technology! Neato Botvision navigation allows the vacuum to navigate around objects, into tight corners, under beds, across different surfaces (carpet to hardwood) with powerful suction and brushes. Fun fact; this laser guided navigation is the same technology used in Google’s driver-less car!

The schedule feature sounds amazing. Can you imagine? Just pick the days and times when you want your Neato to vacuum for you, and let it do the rest? You can vacuum in your sleep even! It even returns itself to it’s base to recharge. Add in the larger dust bin, bigger brush, and super suction, and this is one super robot vacuum. And it’s a REAL vacuum too, not just a sweeper like competitors. Check out the fun video below to see it in action and learn more about it:

Pets spend most of their lives on the floor, or on the ground outside. Keeping your carpet clean isn’t just for looks, it’s also for health, both for your pet and for the people in your house. Neato Robot vacuums can pick up dust and dirt particles as small as .03 microns! That is some deep cleaning friends! Think of how much better you will feel when you get down on the carpet to play with your furry friend knowing that the carpet is nice and clean. This feature really appeals to me for our household!

I’m also in love with the fact that it can easily go from hard to soft surfaces. We have both in our home, so this is a great feature. But most of all, haven’t we all wanted a self cleaning house? The Neato Robot vacuums bring us one step closer to that dream! The fact that they are also the best for pets is the cherry on top!

carpetcuteStay tuned, I’m going to be sharing how YOU can win this awesome vacuum for yourself very soon! Wouldn’t that be a fun win?
