Recently, keeping pets has become a trend worldwide. People mostly prefer cats and dogs as their pets. Dogs are not only human companion and their loneliness partner but are also the protectors. Dogs are said to be the most loyal animal. They are loyal to their owner throughout their life. Humans and dogs share a special relationship; anybody who owns a pet would vouch for it. As dogs’ demands are increasing, so is the need for their food and solutions for other problems increasing. Dogs are supposed to be well trained for their waste excretion. And for this, they were to go outdoors, etc. For this reason, dog litter is introduced, which works similarly to cat litter. It allows dogs, usually of smaller breeds, to stay indoors without a lot of hassle.
Bollywood celebrities lead a life full of admirers and fans, but their pets get their undivided attention and endless love. They are always celebrating their pets, from taking the kitties and dogs on vacations to posting their pictures and videos online. The majority of the Bollywood industry also has dogs as their pets but of different breeds. Also, in Bollywood movies, we now see the dogs making a significant contribution to the storyline.
