Stainless Steel Safari Mat Splitter for Dogs

matsplitter.jpg

Does your pet get fur mats, but hates groomies? This affordable stainless steel Safari Mat Splitter has come to our rescue trying to keep our Golden Retriever wild women presentable. It slices right through the smaller clumps and with a quick flick even the larger mats are gone.

No sawing away near the skin with dull scissors while the dog squirms away. It has a rounded tip to prevent injury to you and your dog, plus you pull up vertically through the mat, away from the skin.

This tool is razor sharp -- the Safari Mat Splitter is not for use by children.

Relieve Pet Thunderstorm Anxiety this Summer

funny pictures of cats with captions

Many pets live in areas that experience strong summer storms along with the steamy summer weather. And next thing you know, your pet has slinked away to a dark closet, under the bed or table, panting heavily and trembling. Pet reactions range from mild to phobic and can definitely keep the household awake in the early morning hours.

Our hearts go out to our panicked pets -- what to do? There are many approaches to anxiety relief and effectiveness generally depends upon your individual pet.

Here at Super Cool Pets we have never bought into the advice that comforting a frightened pet actually intensifies their phobia. Glad to see that the well-respected, kindly dog trainer, veterinarian and author Patricia McConnell agrees in her excellent article on the subject over at The Bark:

On the contrary, it's just not possible that petting your dog is going to make her more fearful the next time there's a storm. Warnings that you'll ruin your dog by comforting her are reminiscent of the advice from the 1930s and '40s to avoid comforting frightened children by picking them up. That perspective was tossed out long ago by psychologists, when research made it clear that having parents they can count on when life gets scary creates bold, stable children, not dependent or fearful ones.

She suggests "classical counter-conditioning (CCC). CCC can be a profoundly effective way to change behavior, because it changes the emotions that drive the behavior in the first place. A typical example in applied animal behavior is having visitors throw treats to a dog who is afraid of strangers."

More ideas and effective product links can be found in previous Super Cool Pets posts -- June 3, 2009 and August 6, 2007 among others.

Amazon Hot New Pet Book Release -- Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog

scentofmissing.jpg

This new book Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog by Susannah Charleson should make a fascinating summer read for anyone interested in dog training and the human/animal bond. This book offers a glimpse into the world of a dog handler and her search and rescue missions with her Golden Retriever partner.

At the time of this writing, the author and her Golden Retriever Puzzle had spent several hundred training searches together. To be successful, not only did the pair have to create a strong bond, but they had to learn how to communicate in depth by decoding each others' body signals.
