Fozzy Dog Leash for Dogs -- Most Convenient Leash Ever

FozzyDog.jpg

When out exercising our dogs, we never know what to do with our stuff--smartphone, drivers license, treats, keys, waste bags, etc. etc. This Fozzy Dog Leash for Dogs is probably the most convenient leash ever and solves that problem.

This leash has a built-in expandable mesh pocket that stretches to handle all your stuff. And the back pocket conveniently stores any size waste bag roll, so that you are never caught without while out with your pooch.

For visibility in those early morning or evening low-light conditions, 3M reflective material is sewn directly into the sides and front of the pouch. This heavy-duty leash is 5 feet in length and can handle and hold dogs from 20 to 150lbs.

Makes a great gift for the dog lover at Fozzy Dog Leash for Dogs!

Sherlock Holmes Avant Garde Retractable Dog Leash

sherlock_retractable_dog_leash.jpg

Here at Super Cool Pets Headquarters we are rabid Sherlock Holmes fans. And we think Benedict Cumberbatch more than deserved the 2014 Emmy he was unfortunately unavailable to collect recently at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Aug. 25.

So we are going all Sherlock and will be performing our walkies in future with the aid of this Sherlock Avant Garde Retractable Dog Leash. This leash is not only uber-stylish but has high-end features such as an all-belt nylon leash, a sturdy metal buckle, and a simple to use one-button brake and release. And we love that the handle is ergonomically designed with a comfort grip.

Available at Sherlock Leash.

Sports Nutrition and Hydration for Active Dogs

exercisingwithdogs.jpg

Many of us like to run and exercise with our dogs. And as our dogs become tired and hungry during their workout, we shore them up with made-for-human performance bars and Gatorade.

In Feeding Your Canine Athlete | NYTimes.com Gretchen Reynolds reports that "the latest science about performance nutrition for canines underscores that dogs are not people." Recommendation for hydrating exercising dogs is plenty of good old-fashioned, relatively cheap water:

Dogs don't sweat like we do. They pant to cool themselves. But they do lose fluids during activity. On the other hand, they are much better than most people at rehydrating. We did a study with search-and-rescue dogs working in 90-degree heat. They replaced their fluid losses almost drop for drop.

To recover from a workout, the article recommends protein-rich dog food to build and maintain muscle plus a small increase in their fat intake. At Food for the Active Dog.

Hot New Pet Book Release--DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show

DogGrooming.JPG

Our dogs love to look beautiful--it's just that their idea of beauty (covered in mud) and ours can be miles apart. Grooming a dog regularly helps keep him/her in good health. Their family can keep an eye out potential physical issues and stop the spread of dirt, fleas, and germs that crop up all too often.

However, professional grooming is one more household expense. So how about DIY? If you want to try doggy grooming in the privacy of your own home, Jorge Bendersky, a celebrity dog groomer in New York City, has just released a how-to DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show: Everything You Need to Know, Step by Step. He grooms Manhattan area dogs and consults on dog grooming, having appeared on Animal Planet, The Today Show, ABC Nightline, CW11, and E! News, and in the New York Post, the New York Daily News, the Chicago Tribune, and more.

DIY Dog Grooming has practical step-by-step tips and photos to teach you how to bathe and trim your dog, plus care for his/her nails, ears, teeth, and more. Included are solutions to common problems like fleas and ticks, dirt and mud. Dog too tense for grooming? You can learn how to train your dog to relax and enjoy grooming.

Hot New Pet Book Release -- Decoding Your Dog by the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists

decoding your dog.gif

Our dogs are excellent communicators. Trouble is, we don't speak their language and they don't speak ours. So it is up to their doggy family to figure out what they are trying to tell us, and one way is to educate ourselves. A new release Decoding Your Dog: The Ultimate Experts Explain Common Dog Behaviors and Reveal How to Prevent or Change Unwanted Ones is a first-time publication for the public by members of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists.

As suggested by the subtitle, the book should help us provide our sometimes mystifying dogs with the loving guidance and direction they need to fulfill their needs and avoid unwanted (by us) behavior. Certainly there are differences of opinion on dog training techniques and theories of dog behavior. This is one more book to add to your library in the eternal quest to understand and love our pets.

Fostering dogs involves welcoming into your home a dog who needs a family and shelter while waiting for a home of his/her own. While this is a loving act, given that it is only on a temporary basis, it is also a challenging one, especially if there are dogs already living there. How does one prepare and train for foster care-giving? And steel oneself for the inevitable parting of ways?

Pat Miller, a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant, dog trainer and author of six books on dog training and behavior recently published a manual How to Foster Dogs: From Homeless to Homeward Bound. Read an informative quick review here, by Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist Patricia McConnell, Ph.D.

Many cat owners nowadays keep their cats indoors full-time, but we still spot plenty of non-feral cats roaming the countryside. If you live with an indoor/outdoor cat who enters and exits the house through a cat door, you will enjoy Ridding the House of Errant Raccoons and Other Animals | NYTimes.

To keep out unwanted critters, the safe move is to upgrade to an electronic programmable system, such as the Cat Mate Elite Selective Cat Flap. Only animals with an electronic collar ID tag programmed into the door can enter or exit.

Every Step You Take, Every Move You Make, Your Dog is Watching You

scp1025.jpg

Dogs certainly can learn and understand some words, though they naturally communicate with us through body language. Our dogs are watching us closely and taking their behavior cues from our actions and facial expressions.

We often unwittingly reinforce "bad behavior". Martin Deeley elaborates in Showing Pack Leadership in Dog Training | Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan:

Training is not just a formal five, 10 or 15 minutes of your day. It is all the time - your dog learns from everything you do.

You shout at your spouse or the kids and guess what? He picks up on that energy and may think it is directed at him. You feel irritable and under the weather? He knows it.

If you make a mistake with your dog, he will remember the body language and repercussions. Of course, the opposite is true too.

It is important when we are with a dog to realize that they are always learning. They are watching our movements, listening to our sounds and, I am certain, ''scenting'' our emotions.

Sometimes we may even take our feelings out on our dog. He did not create the feeling but we have to vent somehow and he happened to make a small mistake.

Therefore when you are feeling a little under the weather or are getting a little frustrated - put your dog somewhere he cannot get into trouble and will not be the recipient of your mood.

Or, if he is the one that can calm you, sit nicely with him, breathe deeply, and let each of you find calmness together.
