Review: Mugoh Mat Helps Dogs Dry Their Own Feet!

FullMug Mat.jpg

Super Cool Pets received this innovative Mugoh Mat for review. It is designed to quickly absorb water from dog's feet (not human feet) and eliminate the mess of wet paw tracks on the floor. These Mugoh Mats are all hand crafted in Oregon and are made of soft, super absorbent 2-ply paper for the ruffles and burlap (jute) for the backing. The soft paper has the same absorbency as the best paper towels or tissue and sucks up water from paws on contact.

To get "the most" out of the Mugoh mat, we first picked the ideal location for the mat, where our dogs come in from outside and first walk in the house. Then we familiarized our pets with the mat (they didn't even notice it). Finally, important, we set aside the mat when not in use, or when dry outdoors, to prolong its lifetime.

Coincidentally, or through some voodoo power of the mat, it rained early the next morning just before dawn so we could try it out. Once Molly recovered from the trauma of yet another thunderstorm, we were able to let our Golden Retrievers out after breakfast to get their feet wet. Instead of wiping down their paws, we placed the mat vertically from the entrance and let them walk in on that. It worked great. No mud, no paw prints or dirt. The mat is absorbent and soft on the feet, unlike the standard coir mat.

After being wet, the Mugoh Mat will normally dry in a couple of hours. The Mat is disposable and recyclable. For optimal effectiveness it should be replaced when it becomes frayed or matted. The mat will last for several weeks or longer under normal use from one dog. It is an attractive neutral beige color and 100% biodegradable.

Equip yourself with a couple of Mugoh Mats and place them together to increase the area your pet can walk on, by the front door, mudroom or under your pet door. Size is 24in x 38in.

Austin Air Pet Machine Air Purifier for Smokers and Pet Lovers


What to do if you love your pets, but your allergies kick up when you are around them? Wouldn't you love to find a way to reduce incidences of asthma, allergic reactions, runny noses, watery eyes, headaches and even snoring, without those meds that make you sleepy? You can.

Do yourself and other allergy-prone family members a favor and equip your home with an Austin Air Pet Machine Air Purifier with a HEPA Air Filter, designed specifically for pet owners. This Air Purifier meets HEPA standards, trapping 99.97% of all particulates larger than 0.3 microns. It removes pet allergens such as dander and dust, as well as thousands of other micro-organisms. Reduces odors caused by pets and other chemicals, gases and odors.

If anyone smokes in your household, keeping the air clean should be healthy for your pets as well. According to this recent article in NaturalNews, Secondhand Smoke Poses Health Hazard to Pets, smoking is not just potentially hazardous to people but our pets too.

Living with a smoker places companion animals of many species at increase risk for a variety of cancers and other health problems, many of which are fatal, according to a press release issued by Oklahoma State University.

"There have been a number of scientific papers recently that have reported the significant health threat secondhand smoke poses to pets," said Dr. Carolynn MacAllister, a cooperative extension service veterinarian at Oklahoma State University. The press release cited a 1998 Colorado State University study, which demonstrated that a dog exposed to secondhand smoke at home is 1.6 times more likely to acquire lung cancer than a dog living in a smoke-free environment. Short-nosed dogs are particularly susceptible.

Austin Air Pet Machine Air Purifier - HEPA Air Filter has a baked-on sandstone powder coat finish. It is also available in White, Black or Silver.

Designed for rooms up to 1500 square feet, the Austin Air Cleaner will purify your space up to twice an hour. The Austin Junior Air Cleaner can clean a 700 square foot room up to twice an hour.

Cat Genie Sani-Solution Smart Cartridge and Washable Granules

Recently we featured some CatGenie Automated Litter Box Upgrades which make the automated, self-cleaning, self-flushing CatGenie even more convenient than ever. Two more items we want to cover:


CatGenie Washable Granules don't need to be replaced, but replenished when the level of the granules fall below the line on the bowl. Provides a 4-6 month supply of washable granules to be used with the CatGenie.


CatGenie LitterBox owners should replace its Sani-Solution Smart Cartridge after about 60 washings. This cartridge dispenses the exact amount of sanitizing solution needed to decontaminate CatGenie Washable Granules and CatGenie Bowl. The granules are made with the same ingredients used by veterinarians to sterilize their exam and operating areas.The Sani-Soultion Smart Cartidge is recommended for maximum effectiveness and will alert you when the solution runs low.

Stop Nuisance Barking with Tone Correction


If your dog barks inside and is driving you and your neighbors nuts, a PetSafe Bark Control System strategically placed on the table in the same room may solve the problem.

When your dog barks, this ultrasound unit hears it through an internal microphone and will emit an automatic (can be manualy operated) 2-second tone that only the dog can hear. The dog will be "startled by the irritation" and will, as Pavlov showed us, learn to negatively associate this high-pitched sound with barking.

This form of nuisance bark correction is suitable for the pet owner who prefers a gentle method of nuisance bark correction. PetSafe Bark Control System operates on a 9-volt battery (not included). Measures 5" x 3-1/2" x 2".
