A Look at LICKS Pill-Free Supplements PDF Print E-mail

There are thousands of supplements on the market that are available for your dogs and cats (and horses and reptiles and critters and birds). But, today I want to focus on a supplement that each of our pets use every day.

LICKS Pill-Free Formulas is a group that I wrote about years ago - they were in our Top 10 Most Impressive Products list from Global Pet Expo in 2013. At the time, they only had three formulas: JOINT+HEART, ATHLETE, and ZEN. So, we took a few samples home with us to try out. We were so impressed, we have been using them every day, ever since... Here’s why:

  • 98% absorbency rate (compared to only 10-30% for pills/powders)
  • Made and sourced in the USA
  • Effects are noticeable within a few minutes and last a few hours (great for calming pets!)
  • You can administer in many ways: Direct (from the package), On the paw (great for cats) and In Water
  • Individually packaged, which makes them easily transportable while traveling to shows or event

Not only are they easy to use, they work. They work (almost) immediately and they work incredibly well.

Each formula is made from the highest quality ingredients, all of which are sourced and manufactured in the USA. This is a more difficult task than you may imagine. Let’s examine glucosamine for a moment. Glucosamine is incredibly difficult to find in any area beyond China, and no one trusts China anymore. LICKS obtains their source of glucosamine from Green Lipped Mussels in the USA. In fact, all of their ingredients are sourced in the US and their products are manufactured from a facility in Wisconsin.

The ClickIt Utility Harness: Crash-tested for pets PDF Print E-mail

There was a time in my life when I just loaded my dogs in the back of my SUV (and worse, the back of my pickup truck). Like many people, I didn’t know back then the danger my actions put my pets in until I was in an accident and I had 200+ lbs of dog propelled towards the front of the vehicle. Luckily, no one was injured, but it was a big wake up call for me...

Its happening less frequently, but it still occurs: people placing their small dogs on their lap while they drive (pardon the graphic image, but that action essentially turns your dog into an airbag), letting their pets crowd to the front of the car in an effort to reach the front seat (creating a HUGE distraction for drivers) and allowing their pets to wander in the back of pickups and SUVs (which can propel them forward towards you and the window at outrageous speeds if you have to stop quickly).

Over the years, we’ve all become more aware of the importance of keeping our pets safe while traveling. But, we’re all still on a learning curve when it comes to selecting the safest harnesses, crates and other travel gear.

Fortunately, we have some companies taking the lead on crash testing and safety while on the road. At no time is that more important than during the holidays. SleepyPod is one of those companies...

We love the holidays! This is the time of good will, great products and cool weather. We've had an entire year to choose our picks for the holiday season. These are a few of our favorite items that we know you and your "big dogs" will love. From outerwear to rugged toys, especially for the "big dog" in the world.

This year, we’re focusing on keeping pets warm and entertained during Snowmageddon. So, without further ado, here are our holiday picks for 2014.

Photographer Central Changes the Way You Take Photos PDF Print E-mail

The holidays are upon us and that means many will be seeking out reputable photographers to take family photos with pets. Photographer Central is changing the way that you do this by simplifying the search process, while providing specially designed search results and individual profiles to help you find the perfect photographer for your family.

We recently gave it a try and were able to locate a photographer in our area who specializes in action shots of people and their pets, in a price range we could afford. We also wanted a photographer to have enough experience to accommodate us for an “official” family photo, so we filtered our search to include photographers who work in a studio environment, but also know the intricacies of photographing pets (and have the patience to do so). Finally, we narrowed the results to find the right photographer to create the perfect head-shot for the back cover of my next novel (very much needed since mine are now 20+ years old!).

The New Cargo Liner from #SeatCovers4Knines PDF Print E-mail

One of the challenges we all face is transporting our pets without coming back in a vehicle covered in fur. The 4Knines Cargo Liner is perfect for protecting your truck from fur and claws and any other manner of doggy disasters.

We tried one out on our Mitsubishi Montero and wish we’d had it years ago. Not only does it class up your SUV, it keeps your pets from scratching up the back bumper when they jump in.

This is a very easy-to-use cover. Simply roll it out in the bed of your truck. The extra padding makes it a favorite with pets, and the non slip backing keeps it in place no matter how you drive! They also include reinforced adjustable headrest straps with clips to make the install super simple.
