This is generally the time of year we try on a swim suit or put on shorts, check in the mirror and say "uh-oh". If this has happened to you recently, use these Dog Walker's Dumbbells to combine walkies with your exercise routine and lose that extra winter weight.
This is a retractable dog leash with adjustable weight dumbbells for an upper body workout while you power walk behind your dog. The three-way trigger on one dumbbell lets out the 16' leash, locks it at whatever length you want, and can quickly retract the leash.
The other dumbbell has a convenient zippered nylon pouch which holds a roll of 15 plastic bags (included), treats, or small toys. Turn the time spent on dog walks into productive time for you!
Many people who love dogs love books as well. If that describes you, combine your passions with this Book Fetch Toy. Not only will your dog curl up at your feet while you read, but he or she can also learn how to fetch one with this realistic dog toy.
The Book Fetch Toy is made from safe, durable, nontoxic rubber. Choose To Kill a Mocking Squirrel or Fetch-22. Great Father's Day gift!
This super cute clip of a dog and a young deer romping in the yard is a must-see for animal lovers. First, some background from L.A. Unleashed:
The deer, named Theen, was cared for by mlcarriker's family after he was discovered alone and malnourished. The family bottle-fed Theen until he began to eat on his own, and although he's now free to wander and mingle with his wild brethren, he "frequently comes back to the house to eat some [cat food] and play with our dog, Buddy," mlcarriker explains. "He doesn't care much for deer corn."
At the end of the video, notice the cats perched on the porch bannister watching the show.
We love this time of year when the weather is warmer, but the mosquitoes, ticks and bugs have not yet arrived in force to make life miserable for ourselves and our pets. But we know that won't last long.
Get ready for the summer onslaught! Green Pet Fleaze-Off is a natural pest-repellent for your pets that does not use synthetic chemicals or drugs, but protects naturally.
Green Pet Fleaze-Off uses a special blend of natural oils to create a barrier that helps protect your pets from fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and flies. This formula does not kill the pests, but makes the environment inhospitable. For use on dogs and cats only.
The Trimmer has a rotating head that gently files your pet's nails. The safety guard holds the claw in place and prevents accidental fur winding. It has two adjustable speeds for all breeds of dogs and cats.
Our dogs love car rides, and the doors of our pup-mobile become filthy in no time from doggy slobber and dirty paws. Time for a Pet Door Shield or two. These shields protect the interior door panels on the inside of your vehicle from scuffs, dirt, paw marks and any other damages when dogs place their paws on the interior door panels to look out the window.
The shields are available in black, gray, tan and taupe to match your vehicle interior and are sold as a pair of 2 in each box. Two sizes offered -- 22" or 26".
Who would trade their dog for a $200 airline fare coupon? That's the deal one airline made.
Before you fly with your pet, or ship him/her alone on a plane flight, read this sad story over at Consumerist:
Where's Paco? Josiah doesn't know, his girlfriend doesn't know, someone at Delta might know. After all, Delta was supposed to load Josiah's new dog on the same plane that Josiah got on. Paco didn't land with them. Frantic, Josiah called around frantically before being told that Paco was safe and sound, being taken care of by Delta employees, who would put him on the next flight out. Paco wasn't on that one either. More harried calls and Delta told Josiah Paco had "escaped" and the best they could do is refund his $200.00 pet transportation fee, but only as a "credit" for future Delta travel. That doesn't do Josiah any good, as he's vowed to never fly Delta again.
What's also sad is that it takes bad publicity via a high-profile consumer blog to shame this airline into any acceptable response at all. Read on.
