Floating Pool and Deck Dog Bed

If your best buddy is a water dog, throw this vinyl Floating Pool and Deck Dog Bed into the pool this summer. Instead of furiously paddling as dogs do, he or she can relax and just float along with you and the crowd. Perfect for a deck lounging spot for wet doggies too.

Thundershirt Dog Anxiety Treatment

thundershirt.jpg

If the booming of July 4th fireworks and summer storms have done in your dog (and you!) try the Thundershirt Dog Anxiety Treatment. It's a popular solution for many types of anxiety including the aforementioned thunder and fireworks trauma, plus separation, travel, and crate anxieties.

This is a wrap that applies a gentle, constant pressure on the dog's torso. According to some experts, pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years.

Consumer Reports Tests Mosquito and Tick repellents

Every silver lining has a cloud and in summer it's mosquitoes and ticks. Not only are they annoying, but they can be hazardous to human and pet health. They definitely can interfere with the fun of playing with our pets outdoors and taking them for walks.

A recent Consumer Reports test found "six repellents protected against deer ticks and two common types of mosquitoes for 7 hours or more. Four of those contain deet in varying levels. The Environmental Protection Agency judges deet safe when used as directed."

The effective products include two types of "Off" and two deet-free:

Another possibility is the battery-powered Off! Clip On Mosquito Protection with the claim of "head to toe protection up to 12 hours" on the package. Disappointingly, the folks at Consumer Reports abandoned testing their beleaguered subjects after two hours because of bites.

Relieve Pet Thunderstorm Anxiety this Summer

funny pictures of cats with captions

Many pets live in areas that experience strong summer storms along with the steamy summer weather. And next thing you know, your pet has slinked away to a dark closet, under the bed or table, panting heavily and trembling. Pet reactions range from mild to phobic and can definitely keep the household awake in the early morning hours.

Our hearts go out to our panicked pets -- what to do? There are many approaches to anxiety relief and effectiveness generally depends upon your individual pet.

Here at Super Cool Pets we have never bought into the advice that comforting a frightened pet actually intensifies their phobia. Glad to see that the well-respected, kindly dog trainer, veterinarian and author Patricia McConnell agrees in her excellent article on the subject over at The Bark:

On the contrary, it's just not possible that petting your dog is going to make her more fearful the next time there's a storm. Warnings that you'll ruin your dog by comforting her are reminiscent of the advice from the 1930s and '40s to avoid comforting frightened children by picking them up. That perspective was tossed out long ago by psychologists, when research made it clear that having parents they can count on when life gets scary creates bold, stable children, not dependent or fearful ones.

She suggests "classical counter-conditioning (CCC). CCC can be a profoundly effective way to change behavior, because it changes the emotions that drive the behavior in the first place. A typical example in applied animal behavior is having visitors throw treats to a dog who is afraid of strangers."

More ideas and effective product links can be found in previous Super Cool Pets posts -- June 3, 2009 and August 6, 2007 among others.
