Ruff Wear makes innovative pet gear for dogs on the go. They have just released two new canine life jackets and a water-resistant dog bed -- the Big Eddy Float Coat, Portage Float Coat and Flophouse Foam Pad.
The Ruff Wear Float Coats contain strategically placed PVC-free buoyancy cells that support dogs in a natural horizontal swimming position, allowing them to go farther and longer with less fatigue.

Each year, two to three million of us suffer as the result of disasters, and as was painfully apparent during Katrina, our pets do too. After a natural disaster everyone is pretty much on their own, at least for the first few days, as we have discussed in a prior disaster preparation post.
The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) has created NAPPS Disaster Preparedness Guide For Pet Owners to read and download, so animal owners can be prepared for man-made or natural catastrophes.
The operative word here is prepared. Preparation is key to surviving a disaster, as well as succeeding in any endeavor, as Amanda Ripley so aptly explains in her must-read guide The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes - and Why.

If you have to tie out your dog in the yard occasionally, this tie out is the way to go. Even the most die-hard tangler can stay tangle-free with this Retractable Cable Tie Out. Its coated-steel cable moves all around with your dog, due to its 360° rotating steel spool.
It has 20 feet of cable, which gives your dog up to 1,256 sq ft of safe roaming area, and is wrapped with reflective strip for low-light visibility. No more tripping over the cable or getting it caught in the lawn mower.
For best results position the tie out in an area that is relatively flat and free of obstacles. Don't forget to supervise your dog when on a backyard cable.

The Super Cool Pets staff has received samples of the D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser and D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray for review.
D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone reduces or even prevents stress-related behavior, say during thunderstorms, fireworks, visits to the vet, puppy anxiety or moving to a new home.
Female dogs secrete pheromones that comfort and reassure their nursing puppies. These "appeasement" pheromones have the same calming effect on adult dogs. D.A.P. mimics these appeasement pheromones to reduce or eliminate stress in dogs of all ages.
We personally have a storm-phobic Golden Retriever who lives in the lightning capital of the world, Florida, so we will try the diffuser and spray out on her as soon as the rainy season begins. She is not too comfortable with grooming either, so we shall have plenty of opportunity. D.A.P apparently takes a few weeks to be effective, so we hope to provide a report in May.
The Petego Pet Rolling Pack is a versatile pet carrier, serving as backpack or as a rolling suitcase. You can anchor it with your seat belt and use it as a car carrier. Or pack it up with your own personal possessions when you are on the go without your pet.
This pet trolley bag has large side windows and a mesh sunroof for ventilation and visibility with an inner leash for added pet security. Storage cover Included. Great for shopping trips, vet visits, hiking adventures and a travel bed.
