Using the ResQWalk App to Raise Funds for Animals PDF Print E-mail

Looking for a new way to help your favorite animal rescue raise funds? The new ResQWalk app is fun, free and super easy to use!

Using this app is simple. Just log-in using Facebook or Twitter (or you can use your email address). You'll see a donation pool where you can choose the rescue group you want to support with your walks. There are thousands of rescues listed and you can either choose one you know or explore a few you don't know. You're also allowed to choose more than one. For our walk, we selected Crazy Cat Ladies unite and AZK9 to receive credit for our walk.

The donation pools vary. This week, it's $2,600 and every time someone uses the app to record their walk, your rescue receives part of that pool. Your phone's GPS tracks and maps your route on a very detailed map (which means, you have to actually do the walk). You can pause the app at any time if you decide to stop at a park or visit a friend, but you don't have to.

Keeping Your Pets Teeth Clean (Without the Hassle) #SmoochUrPooch PDF Print E-mail

I try to be a good pet parent. I really do. There are a few things I don’t do on a regular basis, though, and one of those is brush my dogs teeth.

Let’s face it - my dogs not only outweigh me, they also outnumber me three to one.  Their teeth are a lot bigger than mine. They are superior in almost every way. Sticking my hand in their mouth to brush their teeth is not super appealing.

But dental care doesn’t have to be such a challenge. That’s why I rely on methods other than brushing- like water additives, gels and dental treats from TropiClean.

PetsGEEKly: GoGo Dog Pals for Prey-Driven Dogs PDF Print E-mail

When we first saw the Go-Go Dog Pals remote control dog toy, we thought it might be just a simple remote control children’s car with a cute shell on top. Turns out, it’s a lot more than that… This is a super-charged, four-wheel-drive interactive dog toy that is bound to get any dog with a natural prey instinct on a fast-moving run through the yard.

The device is essentially a high-speed remote control vehicle with an armored shell in the design of a cat (we think it looks more like a skunk), a groundhog, or racoon. You can purchase new accessories to make the shell into any creature you prefer. Your dogs won’t care what color it is or how it looks - they only know that it runs away and it’s their job to catch it.

As you know, our dogs are not exactly hunters. They enjoy their lizard hunts and stalking the occasional bird, but they don’t enjoy killing wildlife (thank goodness!) and I wasn’t sure how they would react to this toy. But I found that once you engage that natural instinct, there are very few dogs who won’t chase after this toy.

WaterCollar - A PFD for Dogs PDF Print E-mail

As you may have seen on the news, Arizona has been experiencing some of the most intense rain and flooding in over 100 years. This creates a new set of problems with our pets because we’re seeing waterways and pools overflowing, even as temperatures soar from 90-100+ degrees.

Even if your pet is an excellent swimmer, he may have problems finding his way out of a pool or waterway and this can result in drownings. Drownings occur often when pets who are warm, enter the pool to cool off, then can’t find the stairs to climb out. As a result, we are always searching for ways to keep our pets safe around water when we’re not home.

Recently, we stumbled upon a unique solution from Hedz UP Pets called the WatercollarTM.
