Dogs Drool for Real Food!
Fresh Fetch

The way to win a dog's heart is through his belly. In celebration of National Pet Nutrition Month, Arden serves up some meaty advice to keep your dogs and cats at their healthy best:
  • Avoid these no-no foods: grapes, onions, real bones and definitely, chocolate.
  • Make sure the first ingredient is a real protein source, such as chicken or salmon, not a meat byproduct or even worse, wheat or corn.
  • Base your pet's nutritional needs on his age, breed, activity level and health. Work with your veterinarian to tweak your pet's diet.
  • Take the guesswork out of portion sizes by using measuring cups.
  • Resist those begging eyes during your meals and treat your dog to hugs instead - they're calorie free!
Since the 2007 pet food recalls, many people turned to making meals for their pets. But providing the right nutrients can be tricky - and time consuming. That's why Arden salutes Fresh Fetch Pet Foods, makers of a new generation of customized homemade meals truly fit for dogs of all ages and breeds.
Co-founders Jay and Mike host the educational Fresh Fetch Village blog that addresses cutting-edge food issues, including the hidden dangers of high fructose corn syrup in commercial dog foods. 
Be the 4th person to email Arden and score a week's worth of Fresh Fetch Pet Food for your dog - and watch him drool with delight. Learn more by visiting

Campaign for Betty White on SNL

Betty White Snickers

One of Arden's all-time favorite guests on her Oh Behave Show on Pet Life Radio (Episode #56) is the ageless and amazing Betty White. At 88, this lifetime pet advocate shows no signs of slowing down. Case in point: the Snickers ad that aired during the Super Bowl that featured her being tackled in a flag football game.

Saturday Night Live is just thinking about inviting Betty to host the show. Think? What's to think? Betty told People magazine she is willing. Learn more by clicking here:

Tell Arden your favorite Betty White moment/story and we will share it next month. Missed the Snicker ad? Click HERE to watch.
Taming Thunderstorms with Thundershirt
Far too many dogs suffer from thunderstorm phobias, separation anxiety and other fears. They pant. They pace. They howl. And, they can become destructive.
Phil Blizzard, of Durham, NC, knows this only too well - his dog, Dosi suffered from noise anxiety for far too many years. Medications didn't work, so Blizzard, an engineer, designed a snug-fitting creation called the Thundershirt. Today, Dosi is happy and calm.
His creation has earned paws up from Linda Tellington Jones, the founder of the Tellington Touch method - and hundreds of pet sitters and dog trainers. My dog, Chipper, panics whenever she sees or hears a skateboard during walks. I put a Thundershirt on her and now she walks with more confidence.
Phil wants to help your fearful dog, too. He is offering two Thundershirts to the first two who can answer this mini-quiz:
1. Name the state known as Lightning Capital.
2. Name the group and song for the lyrics, "Thunder only happens when it rains."
Zip off your answers to Arden and click here to learn more about the Thundershirt and Linda Tellington Jones and TTouch.  Both were guests on my Oh Behave show on Pet Life Radio - tune in to Episode #104 set to "air" next week.

Hop on the 'Make Mine Chocolate' Crusade

Easter Bunny

If Megan Chaney has her wish, people would heed the motto, "Make mine chocolate" - as in bunny-shaped candy - instead of adopting baby bunnies this Easter season. Far too often, people adopt baby bunnies on impulse during Easter and don't know what it takes to really bring out the best in that bunny as a pet.
Chaney is founder of Luv-A-Bun Rabbit Rescue, a nonprofit group that rescues abandoned and neglected rabbits in Palm Beach County, Florida. Arden recently interviewed her for her Paws Up for Pets column in The Coastal Star. Chaney shared these rabbit facts:
  • Timothy hay ranks as the favorite food for pet rabbits, followed by romaine lettuce.
  • Females are capable of becoming pregnant again within an hour of giving birth, so definitely spay and neuter your bunny pets.
  • Bunnies can learn to hop on a leash and harness and use a litter box.
If you want to adopt a bunny or volunteer in rabbit rescue, visit Luv-A-Bun Rabbit Rescue and check out its rabbit videos on YouTube at
