Achieving True Animal Magnetism

Leashes and Lovers Book by Sheryl Matthys

Valentine's Day is not only a holiday for lovers, but also represents a fetching "howl-i-day" to celebrate the wonderful bond between people and their pets. Here to bring out the best in you - and your dog - 365 days a year is Sheryl Matthys, The Dog Expert® and founder of Leashes and Lovers, the online social and business community where dog lovers meet to find real friends, business partners, dog play dates, a date or even true love!

In her new book, Leashes and Lovers: What Your Dog Can Teach You About Love, Life and Happiness, Sheryl shares ways to make yourself more dateable, what the type of dog breed you have says about and best places to meet dog lovers.
 
"In my book, you learn to let go of the leash and discover what your dog can teach you to attract the life you want. I also reveal how your dog holds the key to your life's happiness," says Sheryl.
 
Sheryl is awarding a signed copy of her book to the 4th person who tunes into her appearance on Arden's show, Oh Behave on Pet Life Radio and sends Arden the code word for this pawsitively grrr-eat prize!

Keep Valentine's Day
Sweet & Safe

Looking for sweet - but safe - treats for your furry four-legged friend? Keep chocolate far out of paw's reach as this sweet treat is downright deadly to cats and dogs.
 
Our friends from the Pet Poison Helpline offer these tips to ensure that Valentine's Day - and every day -  can be safe for your pets:
  • Grow catnip or wheat grass for your cat. Or purchase these green edibles from your pet supply store. Keep poisonous plants like Easter lilies out of your house.
  • Toast your love for your dog by serving him dog beer. The canine version is beef or chicken flavored. Do not serve beer made for people as the hops from the brewing process can be poisonous when ingested by dogs.
  • Educate everyone in the household on how to pet-proof your home and know what household products and plants are dangerous to cats and dogs.
