Bliss loves her Sportz-Vibe!

Being the guardian of two busy Australian Shepherd dogs, I am always looking for natural products to improve the well-being of Bliss and Parker. At ten years old, I really have to be carefully with my Bliss. She wants to keep up with two-year-old Parker but her body is just not as agile as it used to be and I worry that she could get hurt.

I know about all the health benefits of massage for canines (and for humans too). In the past, when I had the cash, I spent lots of money to have my dogs professionally massaged. After all, she was a professional athlete, excelling in dog agility, dock diving, canine freestyle and sheep herding. In recent years, she has slowed down but still loves to live an active life. So when I learned about Sports-Vibe, a lightweight portable massage blanket, I just had to have one for Bliss.

I've tried other doggie massage products but what I like about this one is how easy it is to use. All I have to do is plug in the rechargeable battery, put the vest on Bliss, turn on the switch and voila: the perfect doggie massage! Bliss can lie down or walk around while getting massaged and she seems to really enjoy it.

It took me a few times to get Bliss comfortable with the massage blanket but now that she has felt the healing vibe, she actually helps me put it on her! I am happy too knowing that the Sportz-Vibe massage blanket increases the circulation to her back and hips. The increase in blood flow makes tendons and ligaments more elastic and helps bring oxygen and nutrients to the areas. Massage also helps reduce what I believe is the root of all problems for canines and humans alike: the dreaded inflammation. It does this by stimulating the lymphatic system and remove toxins.

I am letting all my friends know that the benefits of the Sportz-Vibe for their high-performance dogs. Imagine using this as a warm up blanket before you enter the agility ring. Or, for anyone who's precious canine has undergone surgery, this is the perfect recovery blanket to help ease soreness and stiffness. It can also naturally relax the sore muscles of older dogs like Bliss. The bottom line is that dogs of any age can suffer from back or hip problems. Why wouldn't  you want to help ease their pain with this natural product?

Perfect Christmas gift for any dog lover! Just go to to order one today! Also available for horses.

Finally, An Alternative To The E-Collar!!!!

I don't know about you but whenever either of my dogs need to be protected from scratching and licking a wound,  or are recovering from surgery, the drama is overwhelming. I had my boy Parker fixed last year and literally tried every collar on the market. Being a smart Australian Shepherd, Parker figured out how to get out of each one. Had I known about the Cover Me by Tui, my life would have been much more pleasant for those ten days of recovery. 

Cover Me by Tui is the most comfortable and effective alternative to the E-Collar. The post-surgical pet garment comes in a range of colors, options and sizes to fit any dog’s needs. A perfect alternative to the “Lamp Shade” style Elizabethan Collars that cause your pet to be uncomfortable, the garment also acts in a calming way to keep your pet from licking or chewing. 

"Working in a veterinary clinic for years, i was continually asked by clients what could be used in place of an e-collar, and i would recommend they go to a local retail store to get  onesie for infants," explains Stephanie Syberg, creator of the Cover Me by Tui. "Unfortunately, if their pet was larger than a Chihuahua I didn't have an answer, so I started developing the concept."

This brilliant new product prevents licking and chewing at surgical sutures and hot spots; is adjustable and comes in seven sizes with your choice of short or long sleeves; is made of soft, breathable, machine washable cotton; includes a built-in "Potty Cover" for quick and convenient trips outside; and comes in two styles: the Step Into and the Pullover.
The cost runs anywhere from $10.98 to $39.95, depending on size and style. For more information and to order online, please visit their website.
