On walks with the dogs, it is easier and a lot more fun to have both hands free. That usually means stuffing your pockets with bags, keys, money, cell phone, and other essentials. The all-weather Doog Walkie Belt has a zippered pocket in front and a separate rear pocket that easily holds everything you need for a relaxing walk with your best buddy.
It also includes a clip to hold your iPod for convenient listening plus a metal D-clip to attach your water bottle or dog's leash. The Walkie Belt also includes 20 pickup bags and 20 scented antibacterial hand wipes, as well as a special holder for that all-important tennis ball. Available in various colors.

As we write this, ole man winter is blowing through northern regions of the US. No matter what the weather conditions, our pets must brave the raw outdoors to do their business (unless of course they enjoy the luxury of an indoor potty).
We are all about fleece this year for staying warm and cozy. This sharp-looking Fleece Dog Jacket is sort of a horse blanket for dogs. It goes on quickly, using only two hook-and-loop fasteners on the chest and belly for a snug, comfortable fit.

A few years ago, our sweet Golden returned from a romp in the yard reeking of skunk spray. Stressful enough, but we also had family visiting with little children. We deployed the traditional treatment of tomato juice, but Dr. Karen Becker claims it isn't nearly as effective as this easy recipe.
If skunks are hibernating where you are, you have plenty of time to stock up on the ingredients. Bookmark this post for quick access when it warms up in the spring, and they are out poking around for beetles.
Skunk Rinse Recipe
• 1 quart hydrogen peroxide -- 3% first aid antiseptic solution
• ¼ cup baking soda
• 2 teaspoons Dawn dishwashing liquid
If you have a larger breed dog like we do, you may need to double, triple or even quadruple the mixture depending on how much territory you need to cover.
Hydrogen peroxide is a mild bleaching agent, so wear old work clothes. You may also want to wear rubber gloves.
Mix up in a bucket and apply the solution to your pet's dry coat. Start from the collar and move back toward the tail. Keep it away from your pet's eyes because the hydrogen peroxide solution can burn them. After the dog has been bathed in this solution rinse him/her down with the hose.
