Have you ever tried to vacuum your dog in an attempt to rid it of all that excess hair before it ends up on your rugs? I have and it’s not easy. The Dyson Groom is a new tool that tries to help you get to the root of your dog hair problem. Dyson sent me a Groom to test out on my Dyson DC24 and here’s how it went…
Did you know that a dog’s nose knows no bounds (say that 10 times fast!)?
In fact, dogs can smell 100 times better than a human. Imagine what smells must smell like to a dog! Smell is the way that most dogs navigate their world just as we depend on our sight.
Sniff Pet Candles are a new brand of aromatherapy candles geared toward your dog. Apparently they contain individually combined natural essences that promote your dog?s optimum health and well-being.
I’m not sure how you can really prove this unless your dog actually seems healthier or more relaxed because of the candles. Either way, these scented candles will help make your home smell nicer and probably rub off a little on you, too!
I love this one:
Fart & Away: This Intense fragrance combination was developed not only to deodorize, but to actually ease the cause of your dog?s unpleasant condition. This mix of floral ylang ylang, tuberose, white tea, myrtle & fennel will take care of it all!
That one was made for Beans!
Sniff donates a portion of each sale to rescue organizations and city shelters.
Recently, I had a conversation with a friend who mentioned she didn’t like to shop at certain pet boutiques because of the high prices and snooty retailers. She mentioned that, while she is incredibly attracted to the beautiful merchandise, she is often intimidated by the atmosphere. Personally, you can’t drag me out of a pet boutique, but I completely understand the issue this friend of mine was having. It’s a critique I’ve often heard from others. After this conversation I was inspired to dig around the web to see if I could find merchandise that had the “boutique look” without the intimidation factor. I was beyond surprised to find a collection of great items from an unexpected source, Bed Bath and Beyond!

Good Karma Dog Center, located in Omaha Nebraska, offers a variety of fun exercise and healing programs for you and your pet including Buddy Bootcamp, Reiki and other Fido fitness programs. They also offer DOGA, which they explain as yoga for you and your dog. You and your furball can Downward Dog together — stretching, strengthening and bonding. Sounds really fun!
I started using a new oil for my dog’s dry skin and allergy problems: Aunt Jeni’s Enhance Fish Oil. Previously, I was using Nature’s Logic North Atlantic Sardine Oil, which worked just fine, but we decided to try a new brand.
This Aunt Jeni’s stuff is hard to find but it is AMAZING. Beans’ coat feels like BUTTAH. I have noticed a decrease in dry skin flakes, too. The dogs are still a little itchy, but it’s allergy season so it’s expected. I am definitely buying this stuff again.
