Friday's Favorite Five: The Best Unique Cat Trees. Cats love to be in high places. You may see your cat up on the counter, windowsill, high cabinet, or even on your refrigerator. Being high allows a cat to view his world from a relatively safe location. Maybe the reason cats want to be high up is from their ancestral days, when they climbed trees to escape other predators or to hunt their prey from concealment. Although the house cat does not have to hunt his prey, some do still enjoy the security of being high, especially when under stress from their home environment. For today's Friday's Favorite Five, I thought it would be fun to highlight five fun and modern cat trees.

MeekByDesign Custom Dog Sweaters

Friday’s Favorite Five: Fall Dog Gear

Friday’s Favorite Five 9/23/16

Friday’s Favorite Five: Fall Dog Gear

Fall is officially here. I’m a summer gal and Dexter is a beach dog, so we are sort of sad in our household. Don’t get me wrong – I love the fall and the fall foliage, but being in Ohio, that just means the winter cold, snow, and slop. That, I can do without. I thought today’s Favorite Five would focus on enjoying the fall outdoors with our dogs.

MeekByDesigns Dog Sweaters: There’s no hiding my love for a good dog sweater. Dexter The Dog enjoys staying cozy when the temperature starts to drop. He’s a big fan of a good dog sweater. However, Dexter is not a dog that can usually wear “off the rack” clothing. He’s a long, lean Cavalier. Our go-to for dog sweaters is MeekByDesign. MeekByDesign is an Etsy shop that offers quality, custom made dog products, including dog sweaters. I have been beyond thrilled with this company and the owner Mieko is fabulous with my custom requests on designs. The quality is impeccable and the style is very fashionable.

Riley’s Organics Pumpkin and Coconut Bone Dog Treats: A fall day isn’t complete without a little pumpkin. Riley’s Organics treats are made from 100% organic ingredients, which is more than a plus in my book. These bite-sized dog treats are the perfect size to pop into your pocket during an outdoor adventure for a quick reward. These little dog treats are packed full of healthy, organic ingredients: Organic Pumpkin, Organic Oat Flour, Organic Oats, Organic Peanut Flour, Organic Coconut Oil.

Saltsox Urban Booties: If you and your dog are the adventurous type, having the proper footwear is a must. Take it from Dexter’s awkward feet, Saltsox dog booties are great dog boots that are pretty easy to put on, and even more importantly, they stay on! These high-performance dog boots are weatherproof and light. They were designed for concrete sidewalks, making them a great everyday dog boot.

Soggy Doggy Microfiber Chenille Doormat: Are you looking for an absorbent doormat that will soak up the water and mud from your dog’s paws? Soggy Doggy boasts that it absorbs 5X more water than a regular cotton doormat, soaks up water and dirt like a sponge, and is quick drying and exceptionally durable. I have not yet had the pleasure of testing, but my dog training clients who have them have told me they love them!

Ruffwear Highlands Sleeping Bag: I’ve been a fan of Ruffwear for years, and when I came across their Ruffwear Highlands Sleeping Bag I just thought to myself, what a great idea. If you are backpacking or hiking with your dog, this dog sleeping bag is a must. The insulation insulates a dog from cold air and hard ground. It has a side zipper that opens the bag wide for easy entry. The dog sleeping bag also has four stake-out loops to secure the sleeping bag to ground.

Friday’s Favorite Five: Dog School

Friday’s Favorite Five 9/9/16

Friday’s Favorite Five: Dog School

School’s in! I thought this week’s favorite products would have a back-to-school theme. OK, maybe not so original, but let me see if I can come up with some great pet-themed school items and gifts. Back to school gifts for pets, you got it!

Dog Harness. If your kids are going back to school, it just might be a good time to enroll your dog in a local positive dog training class. If you attend a dog training class, you will likely need a good dog walking harness. One of my favorite dog walking harness is the Freedom No-Pull Harness. This dog walking harness has two points where you can attach a dog leash. One is in the front on the chest, and the second is on the top. By attaching a leash to your dog’s front or chest, you can help prevent your dog from pulling. As he pulls, his chest will start to turn toward the person walking him, providing the handler an opportunity to gain their dog’s attention. The design of this dog walking harness allows full movement of a dog’s front legs, keeping a natural gait.

Safety Dog Leash. By far, my favorite dog leash is made by Lupine Pet, located in New Hampshire. These cool dog leashes are not only stylish, but also safe! Safety is always my top priority. The dog leash clip is a zinc-plated reverse-gate snap, helping to ensure that your dog’s collar or harness does not slip out of the clasp. I’ve seen it happen with regular leash hooks. The Lupine Dog Leash also has a unique padded handle, which is the perfect size for a woman’s touch. And if your dog chews his leash, Lupine will replace it!

Healthy and Motivating Dog Treats. You can’t take your dog to dog training school without the right motivators. I mean, just how do you expect your goofy dog to focus on you when there are so many other cool kids in school? High-value and healthy dog treats, that’s how. Dr. Harvey’s Power Pops Tripe dog treats has your dog covered in this department. What makes these dog treats so motivating and healthy? They are a single ingredient, Tripe, dog treat. No fillers, no preservatives, just mouthwatering goodness. Single Ingredient Treat — It’s Just Tripe! Green tripe is 100% naturally-occurring vitamins, minerals, probiotics, enzymes, protein, and healthy fats.

Hollow Dog Toy. During your dog training class, you will likely have some down time where your dog will learn how to chill and relax. A great way to help your dog enjoy chill time is to teach him how to chew and lick on a filled hollow dog toy. The Kong Quest Bone is perfect for this. The large, hollow cavity makes unlocking the goodness easy for beginners. This hollow dog toy can be filled with your dog’s home cooked meal or canned dog food, then frozen for a bigger challenge. Not sure how to get started? Read my post on how to fill a hollow dog toy.

Healthy Dog Treat Reciepe

Dog Travel Mat. You don’t expect your dog to lie on a hard concrete or linoleum floor in dog training class, do you? Provide your dog with a little comfort, while teaching him to “go to his place.” Dexter The Dog enjoys his Kurgo Wander Dog Bed. This portable dog bed, or more like a dog mat, rolls up just like a sleeping bag and even has a handle for easy grabbing. It’s soft and cozy, and perfect for dogs on the go.

High quality dog strollers

Friday’s Favorite Five 8/19/2016

It’s crazy hot in Ohio this week. Actually, this heat has been going on for a few weeks now. It’s been so hot out that I wanted to put together some shopping suggestions to take my mind off the temperature. Welcome to Friday’s Favorite Five list for all my fellow pet lovers out there.

Dog Cooling Jackets aren’t just a stylish accessory for your dog; they’re a summer necessity for Dexter. Dog manufacturers are learning that dog parents want to involve their dogs in outdoor activities, even in the summer heat. A variety of dog cooling coats function in different ways to keep your dog from overheating while outside. Some pet cooling jackets are soaked with water, others have a reflective fabric to block UV rays, and still others are made with gel or alcohol panels to provide a cooling action. Dexter’s was custom made by me, and I placed cooling gels in a variety of spots including the back, collar, and belly. It works great!

Cooling Jackets For Dogs

Stylish Cat Purses are not just for crazy cat people, but all women who love their feline companions. This stylish cat bag is full of style and functionality. The top of the bag includes a zippered closure that opens to reveal fabric lining. Two open top slip pockets and one zippered pocket provide plenty of space for your smaller items or cell phone. I think this is a great find for any Cat Mom.

Unique Cat Purse Gift

Pet Strollers are not just for the pampered pet. If you intend to bring your cat or dog on outdoor adventures, or especially long adventures, particularly in the summer, a stroller is a great pet travel accessory. If your dog has a medical condition and long walks are not an option, a dog stroller is a great way to include your dog. You can read more ways to use a pet stroller in this article I wrote.High quality dog strollers

Food Box Subscriptions are a great idea for folks who have a hard time preparing a healthy menu for their family. Love With Food and Home Chef are a couple of weekly meal services that deliver healthy food right to your door. This is definitely on my to-do list, since meal planning is a real struggle for me.

  

Anne Klein Boston 4 Piece Expandable Spinner Luggage Set is the perfect travel gear for
any serious and stylish dog traveler. The four wheel spinner system makes this luggage set easy to roll when you’re holding your dog’s leash in one hand and your luggage in the other! These bags feature a houndstooth print with crocodile embossed patent leather trim, a four wheel spinner system for easy rolling, and the ability to expand for added packing capacity. They are even having a sale! Now Only $201.47 (Orig. $980.00), Plus Free Shipping. Use Promo Code AKBT at checkout.
