Dogs Drool for Real Food!
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
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.
Resist those begging eyes during your meals and treat
your dog to hugs instead - they're calorie free!

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.

Far too many dogs suffer from
thunderstorm phobias, separation anxiety and other fears. They pant. They pace.
They howl. And, they can become destructive.
, 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
