Biodegradable Rubber Dog Boots in Fun Colors

Monday, May 30th, 2016

Winter walks in snow and ice aren’t much fun for some dogs, who get clumps of ice forming  around paws making them sore and painful. These biodegradable rubber dog boots could be the answer, protecting paws not just from the cold and wet but also from the chemicals used in road salt and any other irritations.

They are made from a biodegradable rubber, stretchy and waterproof. With no zippers they just fit onto the paws and stay on well, but are thin enough for your dog to feel the ground. They can be re-used a few times and then disposed of when they are worn out.

Available in several bright colors they come in packs of 12. While perhaps not the cheapest and greenest of options (they are biodegradable, but can’t be used more than a few times each), at least they make your pet more comfortable in bad weather conditions and any other times they need extra paw protection.

Costs between $14.99 and $18.49 for packet of 12 from Only Natural Pet Store.

Natural Pheromone Collar For Calming Dogs and Cats

Friday, May 27th, 2016

Behavioral problems in pets are often caused by anxiety or stress. If your cat starts to urinate on the carpet he may be upset about a change in his routine. If your dog suffers from separation anxiety he may chew and destroy the furniture when you are out.While training is the answer to many behavioral issues, if it’s a case of anxiety causing changes in behavior, then finding a way to calm your pet may be all that is needed.

This pheromone collar mimics the pheromone produced by the mother to calm her pups or kittens.Your pet can wear the collar all the time or just when a stressful situation is anticipated. Whether it works or not depends on the animal and on the reasons for the behavior, but the collar is fairly cheap, lasts for a month and is worth a try if you think your pet just needs a little soothing to deal with the stress in his or her life!

The Good Behavior Pheromone Collar costs $10.99 from Only Natural Pet Store

Personalized Dog Collar In Soy Fabric

Saturday, November 7th, 2015

Soy fabric is soft and tough, and very eco-friendly as a by-product of soy food processing. Soy is anti-bacterial and odor resistant, as well as being soft on the skin, so is perfect for pets with sensitive skin. All natural dyes in cranberry, indigo, rose or olive make these collars even more attractive and earth friendly.

The collars can be personalized with names and numbers as an extra precaution against your pet being lost. Not the cheapest dog collars on the market, but they are definitely sturdy and good quality, and the personalizing is worth paying a bit more for.

Costs $ 19.75 from Fetch Dog
