Plan Ahead -- Pet Emergency Evacuation Jacket

dogevacjacket.jpg

Many of us panic in a crisis, and our pets are no exception. The ultimate outcome is determined by how people handle their fear. Preparation is key.

The new Pet Evacuation Jacket can help you keep your pet under control in the event of a flash flood, fire, earthquake, hurricane, tornado or other emergencies.

The Jacket is made from the same flame-retardant material used by Japanese firefighters and protects your pet from the heat. Transport your pet with the carrying handle and use the pockets on the side of the jacket for any gadgets and supplies you and your pet will need.

PetScoop: The Secrets Inside Your Dog's Mind at Time.com

canine_cognition_04.jpg

This past weekend we featured some new Super Cool Pet Books for fall, among them Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know by Alexandra Horowitz [New York Times review here].

Ms. Horowitz's work with dogs is cited in Time.com's fascinating The Secrets Inside Your Dog's Mind. Did you know that out of all animals on earth, only humans and canines understand the meaning of a pointed finger? Or that the sloppy kiss your dog plants on your lips may not be an expression of affection as much as a quest for food?

Researchers are opening up centers to study dog behavior here in the US and abroad in Europe, such as the Duke Canine Cognition Center whose assistant professor of evolutionary anthropology, Brian Hare, is profiled in the article and Harvard's Canine Cognition Lab.

Not only will these studies benefit dog owners who continually strive to interpret their dogs' signs and signals more accurately, they should improve and enhance training methods for service animals such as guide dogs and bomb-sniffers.
