Time to Work Like With Your Dog!

Take Your Dog To Work Day

Drooling for a promotion? Begging for a pay raise? Your best work ally may be just a tail wag away.

June 25 marks the 12th annual celebration of Take Your Dog to Work Day, a worthy event created by Pet Sitters International,

Arden Moore is partnering up with pet-sitting industry pioneer Patti Moran to acknowledge influential CEOs (that's canine extraordinaires) and promote shelter adoptions.
It's no surprise that dogs make us happier and healthier. As Arden points out, dogs can also help us succeed in the workplace if we learn to:

  • Listen more, bark less.
  • Refrain from petty yapping about co-workers.
  • Unleash genuine enthusiasm - it helps you be creative.
Arden illustrates the power of the paw in the workplace with this short YouTube video starring Chipper and Cleo. Click HERE.

In the Spotlight with Luke Robinson: 2 Dogs, 2,000 Miles

Luke Robinson

Since March 2008, a determined Texan named Luke Robinson and his Great Pyrenees duo of Murphy and Hudson have been walking from  Austin to Boston to raise awareness - and find answers - for fighting cancer in people and pets. They make this nearly two-year, 2,000-mile journey in honor of Malcolm, Robinson's late-great dog who succumbed to bone cancer.
On June 19, the trio will complete their 2,000-mile journey by walking their final mile into Boston.  A weekend-long, dog-friendly celebration is planned to welcome them. Friends, family and dog lovers from 18 states plan to walk the final mile with Luke, Murphy and Hudson. For details on the event and this courageous journey, please visit
As a guest on Arden's Oh Behave Show on Pet Life Radio (Episode #97), Luke declared that this 2,000-mile trek is just the first step in his lifelong commitment to find a cure for cancer. We give paws and applause to Luke, Murphy and Hudson. To learn about their next phase, visit

paw print Who says dogs can't read? Or have a touch of rebel inside them? How else can you explain why stores with open doors and signs declaring NO DOGS are the only ones your leashed dog wants to enter during those downtown walks?

Paw print Cats could become millionaires by betting people in a game of purrs. Cats are the only species capable of purring while exhaling and inhaling. Don't believe me? Try purring while taking a breath.

Tone Down Thunderstorm Fears

Thunderstorms and 4th of July fireworks can be terrifying experiences for some dogs and cats, triggering unwanted and harmful behaviors that can be difficult to treat.  These heightened reactions to loud noises and nasty weather can result in destructive behavior and injuries in panicked pets.
Pet owners in the top 10 lightning-prone states - Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois and Oklahoma -- know this panicked response by pets better than anyone, but separation anxiety and noise phobias affect dogs and cats in every state.

Until the invention of the Thundershirt™, treatment options were limited to drugs or professional behavior modification techniques that tend to be expensive, time consuming and not always effective. Affordably priced at $36, the Thundershirt™ is a safe, inexpensive way to calm pets' nerves during noisy storms and commotion. World-renowned TTouch founder Linda Tellington-Jones endorses the Thundershirt™ and many of her TTouch Practitioners have integrated it in their practices with great success.
The Thundershirt™  is also highly effective in treating separation anxiety, excessive barking, crate and travel anxiety, leash pulling and over excitability.  To view videos showing the before and afer effects, visit Tune in to the Oh Behave Show on Pet Life Radio (Episode #106) to learn more.
