Puppy Tweets Dog Tag for Twitter Coming This Fall


Love to tweet? Get your pet involved too. Mattel has plans to release a plastic dog collar tag "Puppy Tweets" with a corresponding USB receiver you connect to your computer. Create a Twitter account for your dog and receive his or her updates all day on your computer or smartphone.

Puppy Tweets is programmed with pre-recorded doggy tweets that are activated by what it senses your dog is actually doing. For instance, if your pet is relaxing, s/he may tweet "Somedays it feels like my paw is permanently on the snooze button!" Or if playing, perhaps you will see "YAHOOOOOOO! Somedays you just gotta get your bark on."

It would be super cool if the pet owner could also program the tweets themselves, as who knows their dog like they do? Puppy Tweets will be available at retailers in the fall with a suggested retail price of $29.99.

PetSafe Pawz Away Instant Pet Barrier for Inside the Home


Is your dog getting into the trash, jumping on the furniture or the beds, eating off the kitchen counter and the dining room table, or hounding your baby?

Here at Super Cool Pets we generally shy away from products that deliver shock correction to pets, no matter how mild. But we concede there are times that pet owners truly need to keep their dog away from certain areas inside the home.

The PetSafe Pawz Away Instant Pet Barrier requires no training or installation and runs on batteries. The Zone covers an area between 2 and 12 feet in diameter.

Automatic Dog and Cat Fountains: Bridgeport Onyx Waterer and Dog It Fresh and Clear Large Dog Fountain

Are your pets drinking from gucky, warm water? Is the bowl always empty? These two attractive automatic waterers are suitable for households with one or more pets.

Both have an elevated drinking basin to help keep guzzlers from guzzling, while smaller dogs and cats can drink from below. The re-circulating flow eliminates stale, stagnant water filled with dirt and hair.


This ceramic Bridgeport Onyx Waterer Fountain above is stylish and will keep your pets' water cool. The water cascades over the middle dome and spills into the asymmetric bowl. The fountain has gently sloping sides to allow your dog or cat easy access.
The Dog It Fresh and Clear Large Pet Fountain is, despite its name, also suitable for cats and dogs. The integrated splashguard reduces water slobber on the floor as your pet drinks from the basin.

About Dog Harnesses -- 5 Different Designs


Muttropolis has sent us an helpful visual tutorial on Dog Harnesses. On the rare occasion we require a restraint on our own Golden Retrievers, we use a leash. Yesterday at the vet's office, we started to rethink this strategy. It is so hard on the dog's neck, as they pull when they are anxious, and a slipped collar is always a risk.

The dog folks at Muttropolis.com recommend that your harness fits comfortably around your pet's body, allowing him/her to move about freely. Of course it should still be snug enough so your dog can't slip out of it--once the harness is on, take a moment to adjust it properly. Consult the following diagrams for specific harness design features and choose the one that's right for you.

Dogged Health -- Canine Health and Wellness


This morning we had an "eureka" moment over canine skin symptoms that have confounded us for over a year. We arrived at a pretty certain diagnosis over at Dogged Health, found via a newsletter from the American Kennel Club. We entered the bare minimum of information in their Diagnostic Dog - Symptom Selector and went from there. Nifty tool--check it out.

From the site: "DoggedHealth is the most comprehensive and authoritative canine health and wellness site on the Internet. We are both an information resource as well as community empowering users to make educated healthcare decisions for their dogs. Each and every piece of content is provided by a vet or, when appropriate, a certified trainer."

How to Pay Those Skyrocketing Pet Bills -- Pet Insurance Resources


We don't begrudge anyone the right to make a living, but vet bills sure mount up very quickly these days. Office fees, lab fees, x-rays, dental care, surgery, vaccinations--we are talking hundreds if not thousands per visit.

And, sad to say, the line between medical care and salesmanship is starting to look a little blurry. Do you know how or even if you would cover your pet's veterinary bills if they become seriously ill or need surgery?

Currently, around a million U.S. pets are insured, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association. The Wall Street Journal recently ran an excellent overview of pet insurance, making the following points:

Consumers need to be careful, since many pet policies can be as confusing as coverage you buy for yourself.

Pet insurance often places strict limits on how much it will pay for particular procedures.

And policies can have tricky designs that can leave consumers with big out-of-pocket bills for their animals.

Premiums vary from around $10 a month to $75 a month, depending on factors including the richness of the plan, your location and your animal's breed and age.

New Product -- Out of Sight Litter Box


The Out of Sight Litter Box is a self-contained litter box cabinet designed by Paul Pettys who lives in Rock Hill near one of our favorite cities, Charlotte NC. The litter box's design and function earned Mr. Pettys a 2009 Editor's Choice Award from Cat Fancy Magazine last month.

The litter box resembles an end table. No more bending or kneeling to clean. The litter pan is located off the floor, so just open the top lid and scoop. The attractive cabinet hides the litter and helps stop the tracking. No more doggy access either.

For the Sake of Our Pets, Lose the Fireworks


Did you shoot off neighborhood fireworks last night to "celebrate" 2010? If so, this one's for you.

We believe in your right to be "you" as much as anybody -- vive la difference, life is a rich tapestry of colors, and variety is the spice of life. But...your right to be "you" also grants us the right to be "us". And we live with pets.

As pet owners we have to say: enough already, lose the fireworks, okay? After all, they are illegal, clearly dangerous and disturb the (midnight) peace. For those of us living in sub-tropical, drought-ridden tourist meccas, they present an unnecessary fire hazard as well.

Incessant loud booms, especially for hours on end, confuse and terrify pets, cause them emotional anguish, and worse, spook these sweet souls into running away and hurting themselves. Combustibles + parch-dry vegetation = fire engines screaming through the night.

That was our New Year's Eve 2009. How was yours?
