Embroidered paw prints on DryPet TowelWe were contacted by the nice folks over at DryPet to see if we could give their doggie towel a test run. Of course we can! We have lots of pets, everyone we know has pets. The only problem we had was deciding who would get to give the towel its test run . . .

The package arrived from Canada, packed well in a large manila envelope. Not a big deal, it’s a towel. We were really impressed by the lightness and feel of the towel, the color (a beautiful brown), and the quality detail of the embroidered paws in the corner. We also noted that the instructions say not to use fabric softener when washing, but that the towel is otherwise washer and dryer safe. It’s also hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial. Good to know.

Even though we liked the towel’s look and feel, we were a tad disbelieving as we forwarded the towel to our guinea pig selected tester. The experiment went better than expected. Here’s what our lucky lady with four dogs had to say about her DryPet towel testing experience…

We recently received a complimentary copy of “Classic Cuts” by Music My Pet. The CD is classical music that is specifically for animals to provide comfort and relieve anxiety. When we were asked to review the CD our first question was “What makes this CD better than a classical music CD we can pick up anywhere?” We were politely informed that this CD did not include the dramatic content that may occur in everyday classical music. That alone peaked our interest enough to want the opportunity to hear the CD!


Tom Nazziola, the president and creator of Music My Pet, is the talent and brains behind this remarkable CD. He personally edits, produces and performs all the music so that the dramatic sections are removed. The instruments used are known to calm pets such as the harp, piano, classical guitar, etc. Brass commonly used in classical music does not have a calming effect on your pets.

Dogs bags of blueberry energy snaps from organic pet boutique

From time to time we have the privilege of trying and testing pet products. The folks at Organic Pet Boutique asked us to sample their Blueberry Energy Snaps dog treats on our staffs pets.

Since the FDA has been saturated with recalls for not only pet food but also pet treats. It has made pet owners all the more concerned on what we are feeding out furry friends. We were more than willing to test a treat that would eliminate the threat of salmonella.

Salmonella is quite unsettling not only for all pets but also for us humans. Pets with salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. Humans exposed can experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

Cats Pet Stain and Odor Eliminator by Fizzion

We as pet owners are always battling pet stains and odors. This happens a lot more when there is a new puppy or kitten involved but all too much with adult pets as well. Sick pets, aging pets or the pet with an attitude can all contribute to the ongoing problem.

There are products that promise to eliminate both the stain and the odor but few deliver with 100% satisfaction. The ones that come close are riddled with chemicals which are not acceptable in our world. So when we received a request to review a pet stain and odor remover product we immediately went to the site to check it out. Much to our delight the product was green friendly. That alone was reason enough to agree with two thumbs up to try the product.

We’re always on the lookout for natural food and treats to feed our dogs so when we received an offer to test a new, all-natural, freeze dried pet treat from Terra Paws, we were more than willing to accept. We were quite excited because the company was just launched on June 6th, 2011 and we love finding healthy products for our furry friends. Want to try it out for your furry friend – grab the discount code at the end of this post!

Dogs suffer from tooth decay and gum disease, just like we do. We all know that tartar buildup can lead to gum disease for our canine companion (and for us). That’s why we use tartar control toothpaste, right.

Well, a really nice guy over at Hartz sent over a box of their new Crunch n’ Clean dog treats and asked us to give a them a try.
