DOG BANDANAS $4.98

DOG BANDANAS $4.98

Recently on a sunny, breezy San Francisco day I saw a young, macho laid-back dude cruising across downtown 4th and Mission. He was driving a powder blue convertible with the top open. Right next to him was his dog with his front paws propped up on the front window and with his hind paws standing on the floor was his German Shepherd taking in the scenery and having the time of his life. Oh, and the dawg was properly cooling off wearing a paisley powder blue dog bandana.  The young man’s personalized or custom made license plate read, “WOOF2U”. Priceless.

Of course, you mustn’t think you and your dog, pet or cat cannot be just as über cool in any setting. There is no such thing as a pet, dog or cat wearing a bandana that isn’t just as cool, cute and attention-getting. In fact, you and your pet’s emotional and physical well-being depends upon the closeness and camaraderie (such as the scenario above) that a simple dog bandana or cat bandana can bring.

The pet bandana becomes a greater necessity when its summer or the climate is hot. The pet bandana does more than just look cool and fashionable. Your dog or cat, but especially your dog, would need either a cotton dog bandana to sweat on, or a custom cooling bandana to cool down or take heat off your dog’s overall body temperature. (That reminds me- I’ve got to get a bandana collar for my cat, Joey, for cuteness sake. People say he’s just like a dog.)

Fido ‘n Fluffy has got a whole mountain of different colors and designs for dog bandanas. And the price is right! We also have the dog cooling bandana by Kyjen. By the way, $3.95 is a mere pittance of a price for a cooling bandana to comfort or even placate your barkative little dog. Health is wealth, right? (A flashy dog bandana with attitude costs a little more.) 😀

Come check out these dog bandanas and see what I mean!

I Love Pet Head Paw Butter $6.00

I Love Pet Head Paw Butter $6.00

Happy Paws = Happy Pet!

Crusty cracked paws can be painful. But it doesn’t stop there. Dry, cracked and crusty paw pads leads to paw soreness. Naturally your dog will lick his paws to ease the soreness, but this licking will make the affected area rawer, which will lead to more licking and inflammation, redness, irritation and discomfort.

Dry, crusty cracked paws will no doubt be at the root of various traumatic disorders compounded with stress which weakens the immune system. And if your dog is older, stress on the joints is even more aggravating. You can imagine how dry, painful cracked paws would in no time lead to chronic disorders, and lameness!

This is a perfect scenario in where ‘an ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure’ applies: The way to keep your dog from bearing the pain and discomfort of crusty paw pads is, of course, to keep your dog hydrated, and keep the paw pads smooth and supple. That’s where I Love Pet Head Oatmeal Paw Butter comes in.

I Love Pet Head Oatmeal Paw Butter provides the relief and comfort your pet needs. Of course, massaging the Paw Butter into your dog’s paw pads is stimulating and aids circulation: remember, nourishment to the joints goes through a more difficult pathway than does for the muscle.

And it smells soo…good!! I Love Pet Head is quite persnickety in the making of their pet grooming products. They are made in the USA, of the finest most healthful ingredients for your dog. You know it: happy paws=happy pet!

Fido ‘n Fluff, of course, has a whole line of I Love Pet Head Products, and … I Love Pet Head Oatmeal Paw Butter is on sale for $6.00 (so that perhaps you might get hooked by its oh, soo…good!! Smell). 🙂

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?

E-Blast_AsSeenIn_MD

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

K&H Cat Beds

 

K&H Crinkle Kitty Sack

$18.46

When it comes to the comfort, health, and safety of our pets, there’s always room for more. In taking good care of our cats and kitties they, as Kaiser commends, thrive! We in turn benefit as well: cuteness, like laughter, is ‘the best medicine’ for our own health and well-being.

Not only cognizant are we of what is of benefit to our pets’ physical health, we are equally attuned to their emotional needs. They’re very much like humans, aren’t they? They’ve got allergies, mood swings, and noms that are taboo! (A lady I spoke to at the Y has a cat that is allergic to tuna!)

Among the things that please our cats and is of benefit to their health is the right bedding. K&H makes a variety of interesting, cozy thermo cat beds and housing for indoors and outdoors such as the Self-Warming Cuddle Ball, the Thermo Kitty Sill, and the Outdoor Heated Kitty Pad, and others.

Featured here is the K&H Crinkle Sack. The K&H Crinkle Kitty Sack enables kitty to luxuriate in its interior plushness,  and enjoy the built-in crinkly grocery bag noise that they love.

Fido ‘n Fluffy offers a whole line of K&H Pet Products. How can one lose with quality brand products at low prices, a 30-day return policy, no low-balling :D, and Free Shipping to boot?!

DOG CHARM COLLARS

 Charm Collars for Pets

$3.50

No bones about it, we love our pets so much so that we show them off taking our dog for a walk in the park, or showing everybody your cat pictures. We spoil them rotten. Nowhere is it more evident than in YouTube. Many a dog or cat video shows pet owners becoming butlers to their cat, or maidservants to their dog. Slaves and loving it! (Because your pet is family.) That being, we want to lavish them with visible proof of our affection.

Pet slider collars and pet charms is an elegant, yet inexpensive way. Getting your dog a charm collar with slider charms, or getting your cat bell charms is fun for both you and your pet. Imagine your dog wearing a charm collar with slider charms that spell out his or her name. Or your cat- isn’t it delightful and assuring that she’s nearby and prancing about, all because you hear the charming jingle of the bell charms? It’s one act of intimacy that strengthens the love and friendship between you and your dog.

Fido ‘n Fluffy has a wide selection of charm collars and slider collars in 10mm and 18mm sizes, and of course different styles and colors. We have script charms and letter charms so that you can spell out any word as you slide them one by one on the collar. We have Czech stone studded charms, lobster bell charms, pewter charms, etc. (My cat Simi has the pink stone-studded paw charm. Cats look especially important wearing said charms.)

Bring the bling out in your life! Make your dog the divo that he is with a charm collar, and the cat the diva she is with dangle charms. Prices are pleasing, and we’re just a phone call away from any of your pat needs we can render. 😀

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. 😀

Richelle USA Showcasing New Pet Products National Hardware Show 2014

Také One-Touch Pet Gate

It’s ongoing (May 6-8) at the Las Vegas Convention Center. (Shame on us for not announcing it sooner.) What pet owner who happens to be passing by Las Vegas (or not) would want to miss seeing their new, innovative product lines?

Richelle USA is a manufacturer and distributor of fine wood pet products and other accessories, located in Grand Prairie, Texas. (Yeah, Texas, where everything is big!) 😀

Wanna be impressed?  Their Také One-Touch Pet Gate won the Editor’s Choice Award, as featured in the December issue of Dog Fancy Magazine. Why, you ask? For innovative design and overall function. It’s all about lifestyle to them because “… your pet is family.”

 

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 🙂

Kyjen Outward Hound Designer Cool-It Bandana

Here’s one great and oh so fashionable way to help keep your dog cool while exercising and moving around: dress your pet in the Kyjen Outward Hound Designer Cool-It Bandana!

It lasts for hours and hours and- it’s piped (stylish, huh?) with reflective tape for visibility. It even looks cool, soothing to the eye!

Needless to say, you can get the invaluable Kyjen Designer Dog Cooling Bandana from Fido ‘n Fluffy’s, all sizes at just the right price!

It’s summertime, and remember to keep in mind that your dog’s physiological cooling mechanisms differ greatly from yours. Keep your pet away from those nasty heat strokes!
