Pet Umbrella

petumbrellalarge.jpg

But many breeds don't like it. The Pet Umbrella will keep them dry. Made of blue plaid waterproof fabric, with a clear PVC window center on the pet umbrella. For leash-trained dogs.

* Umbrella leash attaches easily and quickly to pet's collar
* Flexible, ergonomic angled handle with padded comfort grip
* Clear umbrella body gives you full view of your pet

Pet Bath Tips from Cesar Millan

Here's a good pet bathing tip from - Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer on Yahoo! Pets", Getting Your Dog to Take a Bath

Remember, in nature, dogs don't wash themselves, but they do go in the water to cool off when it's hot. Use this instinct to your advantage: give your dog a workout before the bath. Get him good and hot with a brisk walk or (if your dog is physically able) allow him to run alongside you while you rollerblade or bike.

Pet Gold Oatmeal Shampoo for Dogs and Cats (16 fl. oz.; Oatmeal; Vanilla)

Pamper your pooch with a yummy Pet Gold Oatmeal Shampoo for Dogs and Cats--Oatmeal or Vanilla. Or go natural at the Only Natural Pets Store--try Pet Aromatics Shampoo in Canine Coconut, Honeysuckle Hound, Dew Drop Natural, or Rose Petal Pooch.

Cubicaller--The Cubicle Doorbell

cubicaller.jpg

This isn't strictly a pet gadget, or perhaps not even remotely. It is an office gadget that makes pet sounds. Instead of having a co-worker clear their throat, cough, knock, sneeze and so on to get your attention at work, just install this fun Cubicle Doorbell, the Cubicaller. You choose your bell from 12 different sounds (listen to them here), among them "cat meowing", chirping birds", or even "quack-quack". Or, if you prefer, more conservative: "doorbell", "knocking", "chimes" or more eccentric: "fog horn", "big band", "fading laser".

The Cubicaller would also be effective in the home office. Instead of spouses and children barging in, or banging on the door, require them to press the Cubicaller. Great for your marriage too--if you want to talk to your sweetie while they are otherwise absorbed, well, just press the Cubicaller--no more annoying interruptions! Children's doors--uses are virtually endless.

The Cubicaller has 3 settings for volume control. Attaches via double-sided self-adhesive velcro. At quitting time, simply detach from your cubicle entrance and hide it!

Dimensions: 2.75" x 2.75" x 0.75" (fits in your hand).

Garmin Astro 220 GPS Dog Tracking System

GPS%20Ant.jpg

At Super Cool Pets bird dogs have been our lifelong companions. We do not hunt, but if you are a hunter, you may be interested in the Garmin Astro GPS Dog Tracking System. This system is specifically designed for bird hunters, but is effective for other types of tracking as well.

Features:

  • Handheld GPS device and wireless transmitter with up to 5-mile range
  • 3-axis compass works regardless of orientation and shows dog's location
  • Shows dog's status, such as running, sitting, on point or treeing quarry
  • Includes barometric altimeter, microSD card slot, celestial information and an area calculator
  • Rugged construction has an IPX7 waterproof exterior
HOW IT WORKS: The Garmin Astro system consists of two components: a Handheld GPS unit (Astro 220) which looks like a walkie-talkie and a Dog GPS Unit (Astro-DC-20) with an antenna which is mounted on a harness or collar and transmits via radio signal.

The Dog GPS computes its location from the GPS satellites and detects whether your dog is moving or on point. The Dog GPS sends that info to your Handheld GPS every 5 seconds. The Handheld GPS plots the exact location of your dog on a map, shows distance, and whether your dog is moving or on point. On your Handheld GPS, the MAP SCREEN shows your location, your dog's location, and the path that your dog has hunted.

Role-Playing: When Your Child Wants a Pet

walkdog.jpg

When your child begs for a dog or cat and promises to take care of it, Baby Toolkit has a great suggestion:

If your child wants a dog, BEGS for a dog, and you don't want to shoulder the entire responsibility for a pet, test the child's promises to "take care of the dog." Make an agreement. If your child will wake at a specified earlier time and then "walk" the imaginary dog (10 to 20 minutes) every day for 21 days that you will then begin seriously considering getting a pet. I'd make it a month of walking because that's how long it takes to establish a habit.

The same role-playing can go for feeding the pet, changing the litterbox or bird cage liner, freshening their water--any responsibilities you want your child to assume.

Gripsoft Pet Grooming Tools

tools.jpg

Today is grooming day at Super Cool Pets, so we are inspired to find a set of good grooming tools. We like these affordable Gripsoft Grooming Tools which combine an ergonomic (designed for comfort) rubber grip with high quality brushes, combs, rakes, and clippers. About Gripsoft:

Gripsoft worked with groomers and designers to develop a completely new line of grooming tools. They studied the way groomers hold the tool, the movement of the hand and wrist, and the contour of the animal. The result is Gripsoft, for maximizing comfort, for ease of use in all those hard-to-get areas and for maximum durability.

Each Gripsoft grooming tool features finger fitting contours along the handle to increase your comfort control and a soft rubber sheathed handle to give you a non-slip comfortable grip.

Featured in this set are:

Flea Comb: For dogs with curly, flat, wiry, long, medium, and short coats. .

Cat Comb
: For use with medium and long haired cats for daily brushing to prevent matting and hairballs.

Shedding Comb: For dogs with curly, flat, long, or medium coats.

Pin Brush: For dogs with curly, flat, wiry, long, medium, and short coats. Use this brush for daily brushing of any but very short coated breeds.

Undercoat Rake: Designed for pets with long-haired coats, which can become matted and knotted.

Dematting Rake: Removes dead, shedding, matted or knotted hair from the innermost layer while leaving outercoat undisturbed.

Slicker Brush: For dogs with curly, flat, wiry, long, and medium coats. Use this brush to remove dead and shedding hair from your dog.
Nail Clipper:

Each tool is availble separately at Only Natural Pet Store, along with additional tool information, PetCareRx and Amazon. Via Ideal Bite.

Sea Dogg Bouyant Swim Collar

Our Goldens are "water dogs" so are very good swimmers. Even the best swimmer can be swept out in a rip current or tossed under a wave. We really like the Sea Dogg Bouyant Swim Collar. The collar is not bulky like a life jacket and is appropriate for playing and swimming in the water close to shore or the pool. Peace of mind--priceless!

Bach Rescue Remedy Relieves Pet Stress

Our sweet Golden Retriever Molly is phobic about thunderstorms. Now even rain can send her hiding in the closet or under our feet at the computer. She trembles, pants heavily and looks around wildly. Just the words for thunder and rain will send her slinking away. (We spell a lot around here.)

We are reluctant to drug our dogs, since they cannot give us verbal feedback on how they feel, and by the time it takes effect the storm is passed. But since we have moved out of the drought here in Florida, we cannot have her feeling this way on a daily basis.

Bach Rescue Remedy - Natural Stress Reliever (10 mL)

Yesterday, we tried Rescue Remedy, a homeopathic treatment which you probably have heard of. Well, it worked. It first seemed to be wishful thinking, but it was true. She stayed out on the sofa in the TV room with us, still drooling some and not a happy camper, but not relatively calm. We gave her 2 doses, about a 1/2 hour apart, of 4 drops each. She weighs about 90 lbs.

Rescue Remedy is absorbed by mucuous membranes, so it doesn't even need to be swallowed and is best administered between the gum and lining of the jaw. Since it contains a combination of five flower essences including impatiens, star of Bethlehem, cherry plum, rock rose, and clematis, overdosing is not a major concern, but prudence is recommended. If you know how this works, or would like to write about your own thunderstorm remedy, please leave a comment.

Other thunderstorm and stress remedies featured on Super Cool Pets are Stress Relieving Diffusers, Pet Stress Patch and Anxiety Wraps.

Best deal on Rescue Remedy is at Amazon, where the price is almost half of local retail. Also available at Entirely Pets as well as many retail stores.

UPDATE: Two days after this was originally written, Molly is sleeping at my feet snoring through a thunderstorm. She was given only one dose of the drops.

Pets Improve Our Health

images.jpg

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Alerts, pets improve our mental and physical health. "Dogs and cats, even a tankful of fish, calm frazzled nerves and ease anxiety and depression, according to research."

Why?

One reason is that pets alter our behavior. When they are near, we tend to calm down and speak more slowly and softly. All types of pets offer distractions from the worries of the day, because we naturally shift our attention to them when they are around. Pets also provide an opportunity to touch and stroke another living thing, which has been shown to be of value to our mental and physical health.
