The last day of Global Pet Expo 2018. Today I walked 5.7 miles in my efforts to see all the great new products being introduced this year, as well as talking to some old friends. I had just enough energy to make one more giant lap around the showroom floor to cover the best and brightest of Global 2018.
A natural way to get rid of fleas and ticks
I was excited to see a product that I’ve used for years while walking the floor today, Cedarcide. Cedarcide Original is a naturally-sourced insecticide and repellent designed for personal, pet and home use to kill fleas, ticks, ants, mosquitoes, and mites, in all stages of life. I stopped using harsh neurotoxins on my pets many years ago and switched to Cedarcide to control fleas and ticks. I’ve used it with great success, not only on my pets, but also on my family. In fact, when my daughter went to the Amazon last year, I sent her with Extra Strength Tickshield from Cedarcide. No bug bites or bug problems or DDT. Cedarcide can also be used for bed bugs (which is why I always travel with a small spray bottle…you never know…even in fine hotels). I interviewed Austin Lilley in the Cedarcide booth to get more information on this great product.
A new dog training treats perfect for kid dog trainers
I’m always on the lookout for cool new ways to involve kids and the whole family in reward based dog training. I was super excited to find Leanlix at Himalayan Pet Supply. This fun product comes on a lanyard for kids (or adults) to wear around their necks, while working with their dog. It works like a giant Chapstick tube. Just pop off the top, give a twist, and let your dog lick Leanlix as a reward for doing something good. After a lick or two, put the cap back on, hang around your neck, and continue with training. Leanlix is a low-calorie, healthy reward that has less than one calorie per lickable serving. The average dog treat has about 30 calories per serving. Leanlix is a clean and convenient tool for trainers, groomers, handlers, and all dog lovers, no matter what their age. Flavors come in PB and J, Run-Away-Frank, Himalayan Cheese, Bark-B-Q, Sweet Potato, and Free-Range Chicken. It’s made in the USA, gluten free, grain free, and lactose free. Look for this on the Good Dog site soon.
