If you need to fence in your pooch and are considering your options, Super Cool Pets strongly recommends an in-ground fence. It allows your dog/s to roam freely in your yard, contained by the parameters you set. The invisible fence can be used for any number of dogs. Each dog just needs the collar with the receiver. The fence keeps your pet safely confined in your yard, yet not tied to a leash or trapped in a small area.
Orvis has a new state-of-the-art Sporting Dog In-Ground Fence. This fence comes complete with 1,000 feet of wire and 100 flags, and a collar receiver sized for dogs over 10 lbs. For concerns regarding the strength of the "deterrent" on the collar receiver, there are four levels of adjustable correction, tone and vibration. The level of correction is easily adjustable if the dogs start to test their limits. This system has the invaluable Wire Break Alarm on a transmitter to alert if the fence has malfunctioned.

If your cat could choose a CD, it would be Laurel Canyon Animal Co.'s Cat-a-tonic. Mellow tunes for cats and those who love them.
If your dog barks inside and is driving you and your neighbors nuts, a PetSafe Bark Control System strategically placed on the table in the same room may solve the problem.
When your dog barks, this ultrasound unit hears it through an internal microphone and will emit an automatic (can be manualy operated) 2-second tone that only the dog can hear. The dog will be "startled by the irritation" and will, as Pavlov showed us, learn to negatively associate this high-pitched sound with barking.
This form of nuisance bark correction is suitable for the pet owner who prefers a gentle method of nuisance bark correction. PetSafe Bark Control System operates on a 9-volt battery (not included). Measures 5" x 3-1/2" x 2".

If you own a parakeet, cockatiel, parrot or any other bird, you know they love a refreshing misty "rain" to bathe and cool off in. The EZ Mist Bird Mister has two nozzles, one for the ultra-fine mist your birds love. Harness some fresh water to mimic tropical rain and give your bird a bath!
The second nozzle adjusts between a fine mist and a concentrated spray that can clean bird droppings from the cage. The bird mister has a handy on/off switch, is made of durable brass and is portable and lightweight. EZ Mist Bird Mister holds 20 oz and comes with a 30" mist hose.
These Dog Bed Liners are worth their weight in gold. When your dog comes back inside with a wet coat and flops down on their bed, it doesn't take long for the moisture to soak through. These liners provide a waterproof seal between your dog and the mattress, accidents from tummy upset or the not yet house-broken or incontinent dog. Clean up is easy and sanitation maintained.
This liner is recommended for use with their round or rectangular Canvas Classic Dog's Nest Covers or Tough Chew Dog's Nest Covers. Super Cool Pets sees no reason why the Dog Bed Liners couldn't be modified easily to fit any bed your pet is already using.
Orvis has a fabulous Dog Bed Selector which allows you to select the most suitable bed for your dog. You can choose from Shape, Filling, Cover and Size. Mix and match.

Super Cool Pets has some upgrades to the popular automated, hands-off Cat Genie Self-Cleaning Litter Box. These additions snap onto the Cat Genie Base match the base color.
While the self-cleaning, self-flushing Cat Genie has certainly freed the pet owner from the chores and cost of cleaning, changing and buying litter, there still might be the issue of cleaning up scattered litter from the cat's scratching and kicking. This Cat Genie Dome Top should solve that problem. Also a purrrfect solution if your kitty is one of those cats who will only use a covered litter box--the Cat Genie Dome Top provides needed privacy for the finicky or shy cat.
The Cat Genie Dome includes Cat Genie Side Walls. The Side Walls can also be used alone and purchased separately at a relatively nominal cost for the cats who refuse to use a covered box. For those cats, the Side Walls will allow some privacy and address the litter scatter problem.
Cat Genie Dome with Sidewalls at Amazon and SkyMall. Genie Sidewalls can be purchased separately at Amazon and SkyMall.
Super Cool Pets had a wonderful 3-legged dog back in the murky dark ages, so we want to show support for Tripod Charity Gear, a site started by a woman whose own beloved pet Lulu lost a leg bone cancer. She couldn't deny her doggy surgery and chemotherapy, going $10,000 into debt. She started selling online t-shirts and totes to pay off the debt and achieved her goal.
She now wants to help other owners of 3-legged pets defray medical expenses. So far she has been able to donate $2,000--see entry Where's Your Money Going?
Osteosarcoma is one of the most common bone tumors, and it is estimated that at least 6,000 new cases are diagnosed in dogs each year in the United States.

Ergo's 8 Day Auto Pet Feeder is a pet bowl divided into 8 compartments, run on a digital timer with a voice recording. The timer can be programmed for the exact feed time.
This feeder has versatile uses. Maybe you need to go away for a few days and leave food for your cat. It is actually recommended for small dogs and cats that have to be fed small quantities of dry/wet canned food alone or mixed with medication. It is convenient whether you have to be away from home for whatever reason or can administer the food and/or meds yourself.
The timer allows the pet owner to feed their pet at intervals and to deliver pet meds at an exact time. For example, you could feed your pet (or provide meds) 8 times per day for 1 day, 3 times a day for 2.5 days, or 2 times for 4 days or 1 time a day for 8 days etc.
The pet owner can record their voice and the machine will play it back at every meal time, so you can "call" your pet to come get their food. The 8 Day Auto Pet Feeder operates off AA batteries. It holds over 96 ozs of food - 12 ozs of canned food or dry food per compartment. It comes with a removable bowl for easy cleaning and ice packs to keep food fresh for up to 12 hours.

Ever had one of those mornings when you are ready to go, take a look in the mirror to see your sweater or jersey is covered with pet hair? Or get up from the sofa thinking you probably shouldn't have sat there since it is covered with beautiful long blond golden retriever strands or fluffy white cat hairs?
Pick up a couple of Lint Rollers to have on hand for a quick clean-up of clothes, furniture, car seats. For the uninitiated, Lint Rollers have around 60 perforated adhesive "sheets" that you roll over the surface covered with hair or lint. When the sheet is covered with hair and fuzz, just tear it off the roll and discard. Stash one in your bag if you when traveling. These rollers have saved many an outfit. Certainly affordable and beats scotch tape!

Pet owners and parents living in snow and ice country--stock up on some salt-free Safe Paws Ice Melt to treat your slippery steps and walks this winter! Exposure to salt and salt-based ice melt products can mean an unplanned visit to the vets' office. Salt will burn your grass too, and people will track it indoors.
Salt Hazards to Dogs. When dogs play in the ice and snow, ice pellets get frozen into their paws. Later when they are warm inside, the ice melts and the dogs lick off their paws. The salt in the ice pellets can heat up and burn their skin, their mouth and digestive system.
Salt Hazards to Children. Children playing outdoors also can come into contact with salt and salt-based pellets. Occasionally, as we all know, they will eat ice and snow and get them on their hands and rub their eyes. The salt can cause irritation and burning.

How about if we told you that in 2008, for less than a dollar a day, you will never have to scoop kitty litter again? It's true if you use a Litter Robot, which is considered by many to be the best and most reliable automatic litter box out there.
Saves time and money. You save time, no longer wasting precious moments litter box scooping. Every few days just clean out the waste bin or liner (if you use one, a common plastic bag will do). Go away for the weekend worry-free! You save money because you don't need to buy special receptacles or bags. Average savings hover around 40% of the litter over traditional litter boxes or other self cleaning litter boxes.This system uses clumping-type litters and a variety of litter alternatives including litter beads and pearls. Stay away from the strictly absorbent clay-based, non-clumping litters.
How it works. Litter Box essentially works by churning the litter and depositing it in a waste drawer. It cycles approximately 7-10 minutes after its sensor tells it that the cat has left. It also operates on manual, say overnight, and you can simply turn it on for immediate cycling.
Safety. A safety mechanism prevents the Litter Robot from operating when a cat is inside. If a cat tries to re-enter during the cleaning cycle the motor will shut off automatically.
Specifications.Overall Dimensions: Height: 29", Width 22", Depth 24". Comes with 18-month full warranty. Manufacturer recommends that you empty the waste drawer at least once a week. In Beige or Black. For households with up to 4 cats.

These in-ground containment systems aren't for everyone, but at Super Cool Pets we really like them. It is good for all our pets to be outdoors and enjoy their natural habitat. These fences can allow your pets outside without the worry of them running away. We basically use ours only when we are home, but that is a decision that must be based on each individual situation.
If the ground isn't frozen where you are, or if it's summertime, you could put in a PetSafe In-ground Cat Fence to let your kitty get some outdoors time and you some peace of mind. The fence will keep your cat safely in your yard. Your cat wears a small waterproof receiver collar with a stretch section for safety. You can train your cat, or cats (they all need the collar) over the course of a few weeks, working a few minutes a day.
