Here's a feeder for the pet who has it all -- we know there are still some out there. This Horn Pet Bowl by Arca is hand-crafted from high-quality Italian bull's horn, so no two feeders will be exactly alike. It even has a small central plaque for engraving.

Yours for $703. Just be careful your pet doesn't deeply inhale scent of bull and mistake the feeder for a big chew toy.

PetScoop: WSJ Reviews Scents to De-Stress Your Pets -- Feliway and DAP

funny pictures of cats with captions

Does your pet suffer from anxiety, whether from thunderstorms, vet visits, travel, or separation issues? Many loving pet owners wonder if calming animal pheromone products are effective. The Wall Street Journal examines these Scents to De-Stress Your Pets:

Veterinarians say that pheromones do work--but not all the time. "They work on some animals, and not others," says veterinarian Bonnie Beaver, executive director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists in College Station, Texas. "They work in some situations but not in others."...

Overall, pheromone therapy appears to be less effective than drug therapies, such as antidepressants, typically used on pets with behavior problems, Dr. Landsberg says. But he recommends trying pheromones first, since they are easier to administer and have no side effects.

Exactly the conclusion we came to in our own trials, in both senses of the word. Read our review last summer, Thunderstorms, Fireworks, Vet Visits -- 3 Remedies to Reduce Anxiety and Calm Your Pet. We achieved most success administering Behavior Modification Drugsicon with basically no nasty side effects. Cheaper than DAP and Feliway too.

According to the WSJ article, the most-studied cat product is the Feliway brand -- Feliway Plug-In Diffuser and Feliway Spray. For your dog, the DAP -- D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray or in a relatively enclosed area plug in a D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser.

Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan Mastering Leadership DVD Series 5th Ed: Common Canine Misbehaviors

cm_dvd.jpg

You may be familiar with Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan's Cesar Millan's Mastering Leadership - Volumes 1-4. Here's a few helpful hints from his latest DVD Mastering Leadership DVD Series Vol. 5 Common Canine Misbehaviors:Solutions to the 5 Most Common Dog Problems:


1.) Problems on the walk - A canine pack leader leads, and so should you! Your dog should always be next to you or behind you, never out in front. Make sure you are the first one out the door and the first one to come back in.

2.) Barking at a specific stimulus - Take time to simulate the cause of the barking, and practice correcting your dog. If it's the doorbell that sets your dog off, ring it when no one is coming over, so you can stay focused on the task at hand: helping your dog overcome this unwanted behavior.

3.) Barking while the owner is away - This is most often a symptom of separation anxiety. You can help your dog to relax by communicating that being apart is no big deal. Instead of showering your dog with affection, practice no touch, no talk, and no eye contact for at least five minutes when entering or leaving your home.

4.) Overexcitement or hyperactivity - Overexcited or hyperactive dogs are not being challenged enough. Most often, they just require more exercise! Find a new activity to try with your dog - hiking, swimming, agility courses - or step up your current walk routine. Dogs require at least 30 minutes of a structured walk every day. Talk to your vet about how much exercise your dog can safely handle.

5.) Aggression towards other dogs - Watch your temper! If you are tense, frustrated, or angry, your dog will mirror that energy right back at you, so it's especially important to remain calm when dealing with an aggressive dog. But remember, always put your safety first! Seek the help of a professional to deal with this potentially dangerous issue.
