However is it essential to do the same for our pets? Some would say this is a ridiculous idea but for others it may actually be a worthwhile procedure.

Black & Decker FLEX vs Pet Hair

Black & Decker FLEX vs Pet Hair And More is probably what we should have called this article, but that just sounded too darned awkward. We were given the chance to give this little hand-held vacuum a test to see if it really did a good job of sucking up pet hair but we ended up sucking up way more than pet hair.

Hartz Crunch ‘n Clean Dog Treats

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.

Flea Zapper

I own a flea comb and use it pretty regularly on my dogs. And I generally keep a bowl of soapy water next to me as I use it because it really works – and if I end up with a flea or two on the comb, I’ve found the easiest thing to do is to quickly brush them off into the bowl of soapy water.

“Cool” Dog Costumes

I know, it’s July. What do costumes have to do with the heat of summer, cookouts, and the pool? Easy – I have a 10-year-old daughter who likes to plan parties for the family and the 4th of July is on her list of to-do’s this year.

She’s decided to have a luau because her Grandma recently gave her a grass skirt and flower leis to play with. Unfortunately

Please Boycott Dog Products Made In China! is a online business that claims to offer great service, good pricing, superior crafted dog products, apparel and furniture. It’s too bad that those business descriptions do not fit the horrible shopping experience I encountered at there.
