9 Holiday Tips for Pack Leaders from Cesar Millan

Christmas%20Dog.jpg Christmas%20Kitty.jpg Christmas%20Cockatiel-.jpg

Useful suggestions from Cesar Millan:

1.) Tire your dog out before visiting or receiving holiday guests.

2.) Don’t forget rules, boundaries, and limitations just because it’s the holidays!

3.) Protect your dog from the cold.

4.) Let your dog check the weather.

5.) Be cautious when around the fireplace!

6.) Be aware of dangerous holiday items.

7.) Protect your presents and decorations.

8.) I don't recommend giving a puppy as a holiday gift.


And finally, the wisest tip of all. Would that we could live this way all year:

9.) Live in the moment! Be happy! Laugh! Celebrate! Want to do something special for your dog for the holidays? Be balanced. Don’t be nervous. Don’t be fearful. Don’t be tense. Don’t think about anything that makes you sad, depressed, or angry. Really live in that moment. Believe it or not, that is one of the biggest gifts we can give to our dog--and ourselves! Everyone, rich or poor, can practice this simple activity. It has more meaning than any gift you can buy. Live in the now, with your dog right next to you and your family around you. Your dog is going to get the benefit of it, particularly if you don’t have days like this on a regular basis. This special day will linger in his or her memory, and, hopefully, you can learn to practice these days more often, not just during the holiday season.

Read article in detail. For more Cesar Millan, pick up a copy of Be the Pack Leader: Use Cesar's Way to Transform Your Dog . . . and Your Life which will show you how to develop the calm-assertive energy necessary for a pack leader. Cesar helps you understand and read your dog’s energy as well as your own. All good stuff to improve the quality of your life with your pets...and other people.

BISSELL SpotBot Pet Hands-Free Compact Deep Cleaner

spotbot.jpg

Handy gadget to have around the pet-owner's household over the holidays, especially with company coming and food everywhere. Whenever we clean up spots we end up with sore knuckles from scrubbing. Those days are over with the SpotBot Pet Hands-Free Compact Deep Cleaner. You just set the SpotBot on the stain and go do something else. It goes right to work, sprays the stain with pet odor and spot remover and starts a-scrubbing. It has two cleaning cycles for either surface or set-in stains. Includes onboard tools for manually cleaning stairs, upholstery, and car interiors. Makes those puppy accidents, upset tummies, hairballs, mud stains much less stressful.

Also included are 8 ounces of Bissell's specially formulated pet odor and spot remover, as well as a 16-ounce bottle of Oxy Gen2, a multi-purpose oxygen booster for tough stains like red wine, coffee, and fruit juice.
