Another New and Exciting Product (Cookies, too!)

 

Hi, Kids!

I’ve been chastised by Fido ‘n Fluffy for taking frequent sabbaticals. (They won’t listsen to excuses. I wish they wouldn’t hound me so much. Haha, I just made a joke. ) Oh, well … please let me  squeeze in the following information describing a new product from our supplier: 

WiseWire Image

 

WISEWIRE® is the next generation in Pet Containment boundary wire. WISEWIRE® is the future of pet containment wire and can be used with any in-ground fence system! WISEWIRE® is not your Dad’s copper wire. WISEWIRE® has the same tensile (breaking) strength as 14 gauge copper wire. WISEWIRE® is a heavy duty, extra high-strength, copper-clad steel wire utilizing a commercial grade steel-core that is metallurgically bonded with a copper cladding. Uniform and continuous, this cladding creates a bi-metal conductor that acts as one and is highly corrosion resistant. Special annealing and drawing processes are performed during the cladding process to achieve the desired engineered benefits of unmatched strength, reliability and durability.

Insulation is a 20 mil, high-density, high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE/HDPE) engineered to provide superior water blocking and abrasion properties against underground elements and helps prevent accidental breaks caused by rocks in shifting soil conditions, dig-ins and corrosion.

  • WISEWIRE®is equal to copper in signal performance for pet containment systems. That’s the only direct comparison; it simply outperforms copper wire in strength, reliability, and durability- at a much lower cost and (shipping) weight.
  • WISEWIRE®20 AWG is 5X higher in break load- equal to a much heavier 14 AWG copper wire- minimizing damage during installation and while in service. Designed to embody the flexibility and memory of copper with a slightly stiffer feel, it can be used in open trench as well as plow-in installations. 20 gauge copper CANNOT be used reliably in a wire-laying machine due to its low tensile strength… but WISEWIRE® does it easily!
  • WISEWIRE®20 AWG provides excellent corrosion resistance and superior strength for unmatched tensile, side impact loads and flex fatigue. WISEWIRE® is RoHS compliant and works with traditional connectors.
  • WISEWIRE®is eco-friendly. Protecting the Earth and going green, all materials that go into this product are fully recyclable.
  • WISEWIRE®offers considerably more pricing stability than 100% copper wire.
  • WISEWIRE®has been field tested for the last 2 years by select commercial installers. These installers swear that they will NEVER go back to 100% copper wire!
  • 14 gauge tensile strength can be achieved with 20 gauge WISEWIRE®weighing 3 lbs- compared to 14ga that ships at 11 lbs per 500′ spool. The shipping expense savings is obvious. For those who are still not comfortable with 20 gauge wire we also offer WISEWIRE® in 18 gauge, 16 gauge, and 14 gauge sizes. Each gauge of WISEWIRE® above 18 gauge is 56% stronger than its copper counterparts and 20 gauge performs even better compared to 18 gauge:

WISEWIRE® 20 AWG PE20 is 150% stronger in break load or equal to 18 AWG copper wire.

WISEWIRE® 18 AWG PE30 is 56% stronger in break load or equal to 16 AWG copper wire.

WISEWIRE® 16 AWG PE45 is 56% stronger in break load or equal to 14 AWG copper wire.

WISEWIRE® 14 AWG PE45 is 56% stronger in break load or equal to 12 AWG copper wire.

WISEWIRE® has been field tested for the last 2 years by select commercial installers. These installers swear that they will NEVER go back to 100% copper wire!

Coming Soon: Richelle’s Easy-Clean Pet Crate

Hi, Kids and Humans!

 

As you may already know (or not), Fido ’n Fluffy’s niche is pet sports gear, glamor & fashion. But we can’t resist offering products from manufacturers and companies that are up and rising in the pet industry. They get all kinds of awards ’n stuff.

 

That’s why we’re announcing this upcoming product from Richelle, and they say that with Richelle’s Easy-Clean Pet Crate makes cleaning your pet’s crate easier than ever!
unnamed

 

Richell’s Easy-Clean Pet Crate comes with a sliding tray that can be removed for an easy wipe down. The specially designed sliding door opens smoothly for easy pet access. The tension locking system keeps pets secure in their crate. The wire top is included to keep pets safe. This crate has enough space for a pet bed, training tray, or toys.

 

The Easy-Clean Pet Crate comes in two sizes, Small for pets up to 17.6 lbs. and Large for pets up to 44 lbs. Designed by Richell Corporation Japan.”

 

  Psst:—You might already know that:
  • UPS will stop delivering to homes, and FedEx will most likely follow suit. Hehe, Fido ’n Fluffy will not be changing prices because of that.
  • Also, as soon as our human learns how to blog, she’ll be sharing important stuff like
  • cute items you can get from Cats In The Bar and Katzenworld, the profits go to charities that help our fellow cats and dogs.

Until next blog, Too-da-loo! 😀

25% Sale Pet Accessories

Announcing Mirage Sale, 25% Off!

Big dog neck ties,  Big Dog Neck Tieslittle dog bow ties, mesh harnesses, pearl dog necklaces, (I’m doing this from memory) Smoochers, and designer ties for dogs. Neck Tie Group 250 (But cats can wear them, too.
 My cat Joey is bigger than lots of dogs. I buy him dog collars.)
Shirts Plain-WL-250             Shirts Plain-Group-1000

 

Metallic

We also have a variety of colors for dog bone (meaning ‘bone studs’) collars in metallic or faux Faux Snake Skinsnake skin.

Anyway, the items displayed here are for sale, and I am duty-bound to pass the savings on to customers. If I don’t implement it, Fido ‘n Fluffy will give me the ‘evil eye’.

99-05 Group 250

Better still, it will be a flat 25% off discount so that I- I mean Fido ‘n Fluffy- won’t have to figure out which is 5%, which is 10%, etc. They’d rather pay for it than do the extra math required. Plus there’s no apps for them to use the keyboard (not the piano kind of keyboard) yet.

So I’ll just post the all pictures of dog accessories here so that I won’t have to blog about each and every sale item! 😀

The ‘Smoochers’ seem to be an in-demand item. Interesting … smoochers-confetti bells-250

But why spend money on non-practical items of mere vanity? (This is a throw-a-pie-in-the-face kind of question, I know.)

The Burberry tie on your big pooch, or little pooch. The colorful, mesh dog harnesses you can even use for your cats. (A lot of cat owners are now walking their cats for regular exercise.) The metallic bone collars. The pearl necklaces on your pooch that would steal attention away from celebs on Hollywood Boulevard. Srsly. Bow Tie Sub Cat Group

But the happy faces on your pets when you adorn them with those things, and the ever recurring “Aww’s” they elicit … priceless.

Where the price is right! 😀

PAW TRAX® Super Absorbent Doggy Pads

 

PAW TRAX® Doggie Pads $22.86

The new and upcoming Super Absorbent Doggy Pads come in 4 packs of 50.

According to Richell, who makes these doggy pads, “Pet owners are asking for bulk buys, so we now offer the 200 pack … at a discounted rate!”

A couple of years ago an internet marketing consultant was telling me over the phone that he got a new puppy, and he’s not always there to watch the puppy. The problem was that the puppy was always peeing on the carpet, and the carpet was getting stained.

So I told him, “Waddya think you got a wife for!” (Of course, I’m just kidding.) 😀 Seriously, to borrow the words of M. Scott Peck, train your pup with “firmness yet kindness” (bossy words or heavy-handedness is not necessary) and in no time will your pup adapt sooner than you think.

The perfect solution to the above such plight are the Paw Trax puppy training products. That would have been the ideal recommendation, but alas I failed to do so and referred him to puppy trainers, instead. (At least I didn’t tell him to bring in the carpet cleaners.) 😀

Some specifics:

  • Pad: 17.7 x 23.6″
  • Bag: 17.5 x 5.9 x 7.7″
  • Carton: 17.3 x 12.6 x 15.3″
  • 4/CTN
  • 20.5 lbs.

Also, Paw Trax will be coming out with new mesh training trays in brown, green, and pink! Pretty exciting, huh?

Let Fido ‘n Fluffy know if you might be interested in these bulk buys so we can pass on the savings to you.

FIDO ‘N FLUFFY – FREE SHIPPING

…on all orders $50 and over.

Inspired by Amazon, you’re gonna get good deals from Fido ‘n Fluffy via the standard low prices, and free shipping- icing on the cake!

According to what Rick Broida tells us in CNET.com, ‘“With Prime, users get “two-day shipping on virtually anything …Amazon Prime is a “kind of an oddball assemblage of services,” but for the regular online shoppers, even “the shipping alone feels like a huge win.’”

Fido ‘n Fluffy has Free Shipping, too, but sans the ‘virtually anything’ part, because we confine our products exclusively to cats and dogs.

We can boast, though, of the ‘huge win’ part: customers don’t have hidden fees, i.e. we won’t pad the price of the product to make it look like Free Shipping when in effect you still pay shipping charges via the padded prices. (We don’t think Amazon does, either. Otherwise it is standard practice.)

Preposterous? Not. Fido ‘n Fluffy may be silly enough to pay for the shipping so that shoppers can have a pleasant experience browsing Fido ‘n Fluffy’s site. (What a turn-off when the shipping costs more than the product!)

Not to fear- this won’t make Amazon feel guilty or insecure, and if Fido ‘n Fluffy can make a dollar or two (they don’t eat much), they’ll still be on the plus side of the equation. We think that Stephen Covey will agree that Fido ‘n Fluffy’s ‘Free Shipping’ maneuver is a win/win situation. 😀

PETMATE® GARNERS LEAD AT GLOBAL PET EXPO

 

PETMATE® WINS COVETED 2014 EDISON AWARD

 

Yep, for the World’s Most Innovative Products and Services. Petmate won the Edison Award in Lifestyles for their Travel ‘See & Extend’ Carrier, and the Edison Green Award for their success in developing sustainable solutions and green business models.

Says Larry Baab, EVP Marketing & New Product Development, “Our Spectrum facility is one of many ways Petmate helps to preserve the environment through sustainable manufacturing.”

Well, they certainly walk the talk.

Petmate® purchases and consumes 40 to 80 million pounds of post-industrial/pre-consumer plastic waste per year to create viable injection-grade plastic for their products which are made of 95% recycled material that would otherwise go to landfills. All internal scrap is recycled for future use; the corporate office recycles, too. (Italics, mine.)

Again I quote Larry Baab, who had mentioned prior to the awards, “Petmate shares the Edison Awards’ commitment to innovation with a visionary, creative-yet-practical approach to pet products.” Makes me wonder if they might have a bona-fide think tank somewhere. 😀

Take a look at the video and see how the “See & Extend” pet carrier works. This, and Petmate’s many new products are coming soon. Meanwhile, check out Petmate’s other products at Fido ‘n Fluffy’s 🙂

ITCH STOP

Drs. Foster and Smith ‘Itch Stop Series’

On my way home yesterday I saw Tiger (a neighborhood feral cat) rolling her back on the pavement. Definitely not the social roll.

No, Tiger was clearly uncomfortable. I rushed over to scratch her back. (Then it dawned on me that cats and dogs have no backscratchers like we do.)

Interestingly, I just got Doctors Foster and Smith’s catalogue in today’s mail, and noticed they have an ‘Itch Stop Series’. So today instead of inviting you over to Fido ‘n Fluffy’s website, we’re inviting you to their website so you can check out their tried and true solutions.

These veterinarians cover the whole gamut of products for all your pets skin care needs. Besides our own, they are the one and only website you can bank on. 😀 Make sure what happened to Tiger never happens with your pet, especially when you’re not there!
