Watercollar is Helping Angie Swim Again, Having Epilepsy for 8 years!

No Comments Robin Berry's Angie


Precious words from Angie’s owner:

Attached are a few snaps of our 15 year old golden retriever Angie enjoying her new water collar.

 As she has suffered from epilepsy for over 8 years and can now hardly walk –  the water exercise is great for her.  She loves swimming but was having trouble holding her head above water as she got older.  This water collar has reinvigorated her.

 Thank you

National Pet Expert Arden Moore Reveals the Best Pet Products of 2016 in Her “Santa Paws”-Themed Show on Pet Life Radio.

Moore Highlights Products That Enrich the Health, Safety and Quality of Life for Pets.

“I only picked the best of the best pet products for this year’s list–your pets will squeal with delight to receive any of them under the holiday tree.” Arden Moore, National Pet Expert and Oh Behave show host.

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 06, 2016

It can be argued that people these days spend as much time searching for the best holiday presents for their four-legged family members as they do for their human friends and family. As pets have assumed a bigger role in many Americans’ lives, pet parents’ desire to find the highest quality and most innovative pet products has also increased.

For this reason, America’s Pet Health and Safety Coach Arden Moore carefully selected her 2016 list of Best Pet Products that are being spotlighted on her award-winning Oh Behave radio show. Moore’s Santa Paws-themed broadcast airs beginning on December 6th, 2016 on Pet Life Radio, the world’s largest pet radio network.

Moore chose the following pet products as pet category standouts for 2016:

  1. Katris Lynks. These creatively shaped cat scratchers not only look great in any room and can be configured in numerous combinations, but their super-dense corrugated cardboard also mean less shreds fall out than in other shredders on the market. Less shredding equals longer lasting and less cleanup.
  2. Lucy Pet Cats Incredible Litter. Not only does this litter have patent-pending technology that keeps urine-smelling ammonia from forming inside the litter box, but all profits from the sale of the company’s products go to the Lucy Pet Foundation, a 501(c)3 charity whose mission is to reduce pet overpopulation via mobile spay and neuter clinics.
  3. Alcott Adventures Traveler Car Safety Belt. Alcott Adventures recognizes that dogs make great travel mates and are committed to keeping them safe in vehicles. Their Traveler Car Safety Belt can easily be hooked into a universal seat belt receptacle and then hooked to a dog’s harness or collar to keep the family dog safe and in their seat during road trips short or long.
  4. Hedz UP Pets Watercollars. The Watercollar repeats its appearance on last year’s list as the premier pet personal flotation device on the market. Its patented design keeps a dog’s head out of the water at all times, so a dog cannot drown, even if he tires while swimming or if he cannot find a way out of a pool. This is a must-have for any dog who spends time in or around a swimming area.
  5. Carlson Morgan Premium Beef Treats. These high-protein, limited ingredient dog treats sport many raving fans—canine and human alike. Made in California, Carlson Morgan’s Premium Beef Treats are absent of the filler ingredients found in most other treats and have no artificial flavors or colors. These treats are exactly what nature intended dogs to eat, and are available in bulk right now at a holiday promotional price.
  6. Stella and Chewy Meal Mixers. Meal Mixers are a great way to “Kickstart Your Kibble” by adding raw, nutrient-rich meat, wholesome fruit and vegetables, probiotics and antioxidants to a dog’s kibble diet. They are great for enticing picky eaters while also giving dogs some much-needed variety in their diet.
  7. Dry Mate Litter Mat. The Litter Mat’s unique fabric is waterproof while it simultaneously collects litter particles to reduce the tracking of cat litter throughout a house. Cats love the feel of it on their feet, and cat parents love that it’s machine washable and made in the USA.
  8. Alcott Adventures Pet First Aid Kit. Another repeat product from last year’s list, Alcott’s Pet First Aid Kit is a must-have for pet lovers who take safety seriously. Its compact design and 40+ contents include vinyl gloves, hydrogen peroxide, scissors, tape, saline eye wash, and an oral syringe amongst many other necessities to keep your favorite pet (and human) safe.
  9. Solvit Car Cuddler. Anyone who has traveled with a dog in their car knows that dogs can be rough on a vehicle’s interior. Solvit’s Car Cuddler solves this problem by covering the vehicle seat while also providing a plush center section that allows the dog to ride in exceptional comfort.

Keep your pet safe offshore with Hedz UP Pets Watercollar, a hexagonal-shaped PFD for dogs that not only keeps Fido afloat, but, even if he’s unconscious, keeps his snout above water to maximize survivability. The collar is made of non-absorbent, closed-cell foam and covered with cotton fabric. Unlike a conventional lifejacket, the Watercollar attached directly to a dog’s own collar with a set of polyurethane straps that allow your pet to see and move freely. Sizes range from small to extra-large. Now the only worry if Fido goes in the drink is dealing with a wet stinky beast when you get him back on board! From $39 Hedz UP Pets, www.HedzUpPets.com or www.SaveDogsFromDrowning.com.

Rescue Road Trips

No Comments Rescue Road Trip LogoGreg Mahle's pic 082116

We at Hedz UP Pets just found out, through a new customer, about this incredible man who has made it his mission in life to rescue dogs from shelters in the South that euthanize their animals after only a few days if they can’t find homes for them. Greg Mahle, from Ohio, has become a shining light in this utter darkness.  He has created a lifeline for thousands of dogs — currently upwards of 55,000, and counting!

He purchased an air conditioned semi tractor trailer, outfitted it with a huge number of crates, has a crew of people who travel with him to take care of the dogs, and delivers them to the waiting arms of people in towns up and down the East Coast. It is one of the most selfless stories I’ve ever heard.

Here’s what his website says:

“A Low Cost Transport Service for Rescue Dogs in the Deep South and an Ohio based rescue. We are a licensed USDA Class-T Carrier providing loving, humane road trips for homeless, unwanted and unloved dogs facing assured, immediate death in Southern Kill Shelters. We deliver to Loving “Forever Homes” in New England and the surrounding areas.

“We leave Ohio on Tuesdays, passing through Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi and arrive in Texas on Wednesday nights. Thursday, we work our way from Texas, head across Louisiana and then head north toward Tennessee. Fridays are spent getting from the South to above the Mason Dixon Line. Saturdays are the magic days because, after facing death, all dogs with me are about to embark on the most love-filled part of their lives with their forever families. It is a very wonderful, emotional event for all involved. And. Yes. We usually shed a few happy tears. We are home on Sundays for some hard-earned rest. On Mondays, we clean trailers and sanitize crates and get ready to do “that rescue thing” on Tuesday.”

Hi, Lynne, I just had to share this pic of Brock in his PFD. We took him swimming in the pool and he won’t get in without his WATERCOLLAR! He hates wearing a life vest because it tips him over, but he dives right in with this!

Hedz UP Pets Has a New Distributor in Australia!!

No Comments

We welcome Lisa Larman of Pimpama, Queensland (near Brisbane), Australia, to Hedz UP Pets. Lisa is our first Distributor, and we are very pleased to have her on board, and very excited to have a presence in Australia!! Lisa has a beautiful 50-pound female Bulldog, named Ronnie. Ronnie was having a very difficult time swimming and keeping her head above the water, and would quickly become exhausted. Lisa began searching the Internet for a life-saving product that was not a dog life jacket. She found us and ordered a Watercollar to try for Ronnie. Lisa was so taken by the Watercollar and how great it works for Ronnie that she decided she wanted OUR MISSION to become HER MISSION — to Save Dogs from Drowning  — all across Australia!

Need a great gift idea for a pet or pet lover? America’s Pet Health and Safety Coach™ Arden Moore knows finding the right gift can sometimes be stressful. Moore, who assesses pet products throughout the year, was inspired to create a list of quality products just in time for the holidays—products that keep pets safe and healthy, as well as enrich their lives mentally and physically.

“I encourage you to consider the products that made my Top 10 list because they bring out the best in our pets in so many wonderful ways.” Arden Moore

“Our pets give us unconditional love and loyalty 365 days a year,” says Moore, who shares her home with three shelter rescue pets, Chipper, Cleo and Casey. “I urge pet lovers to shop smartly this holiday season. I encourage you to consider the products that made my Top 10 List because they bring out the best in our pets in so many wonderful ways.”

Moore, a pet behavior consultant and best-selling author, unveiled her carefully selected Top Ten list on her award-winning Oh Behave Show, now airing on Pet Life Radio, the world’s largest pet radio network.

Moore chose the following pet products as “best of the best” for 2015: 

1.    Alcott Adventures Explorer First Aid Kit. This 46-piece kit is packed with helpful medical supplies for both pets and people. The portable (8” x 6”) design makes it convenient to keep in the car or put in your backpack. 
2.    Hedz Up Pets Watercollars. Ideal for any dog that spends time near water, this personal flotation device has loops that attach the Watercollar to the pet’s own collar. If the dog should become exhausted or even unconscious, the Watercollar holds him in a position of safety, with his nose held well above the water. 
3.    Solvit Products Car Safety Harnesses. These harnesses integrate easily with your vehicle’s seat belt system, keeping the dog safe while riding in the car, and the driver focused on the road. 
4.    Wireless Whiskers Ultimate Automatic Pet Feeder. This multi-pet feeder can identify up to 8 pets in a household individually and provide them with their specific food portion amount. It solves all of the varying feeding challenges of a multi-pet household like monitoring the portions for an overweight pet, pets stealing another pet’s food, gorging, etc. 
5.    Walkies Fit Bites by Crazy Pet/Cardinal Pet Care. These foot-shaped treats are designed for active dogs and have ingredients that promote heart health, repair joint cartilage and tissue, and burn fat. 
6.    Okocat Natural Cat Litters by Healthy Pet. Okocat litters are made of wood and paper materials, thus are biodegradable and flushable. In addition to being significantly better for the environment than traditional clay litters, they have unmatched absorption and 7-day odor control. 
7.    Nekochan UJI Cat Tunnels. These interchangeable cat tunnels are designed to meet cats’ instinctual needs to play, hide and seek, giving cats a highly enriching indoor activity opportunity. 
8.    Nekochan Telescoping Rod. The high-quality Telescoping Rod adjusts to 3 different sizes and has variable string lengths, allowing a cat to chase, pounce, play or jump on whichever clipped in “fly” toy is on the end of the rod. It provides great exercise for a cat, and allows for important human-cat interaction. 
9.    Buster Activity Mat by Kruuse. The Buster Activity Mat is a mentally stimulating activity a dog can use indoors. Several attached toys come with each mat, and act as multi-level treat puzzles. With the ability to make each game easier or harder depending on a dog’s skill level, the Buster Activity Mat teaches a dog to work with his nose, solve problems and learn new things. 
10.    Solvit Products Homeaway Travel Organizer. The Homeaway Travel Organizer is an attractive bag that is designed to hold all of the items a dog would need to feel at home on the road including: leash, towel, chew toy, fetch toy, poop bags, food, water bottle and collapsible bowls.

Service Dog, Ike, was the Winner of a Watercollar through Dogster Magazine Contest!

No Comments

My dog, Ike, WON your Hedz UP Pets Watercollar from a contest in Dogster magazine! Ike, is my service dog, so I am extra protective over him and the activities he is allowed to do. We bought a new home not too long ago, because, being handicapped, I needed a one-story home. The home not only came with a pool but a one-acre pond as well. Ike, loves all things water related! I can’t chase after him, and when I let him loose into the fenced back yard, he goes straight for the pond every time. With the Hedz UP Pets Watercollar, I feel much more at ease letting him out to play, knowing he is protected against drowning. Thank you for making a product that protects my service dog in the water. Thank you for the peace of mind it gives me.
