We’ve often written about our dog Irie’s fearful behavior, especially when it comes to thunderstorms, fireworks, and gunfire. As you know, we’ve really been recommending Thundershirt after seeing the great results on Irie. Our cat Felix also has anxiety issues (he was a former feral), and we’ve been using the Thundershirt for cats on him with great results, too.

Holidays can be stressful for pets with all the hustle and bustle of the season (not to mention New Year’s Eve fireworks) and, using a patent-protected design, Thundershirt provides a gentle, constant pressure to calm animals. The product is also used and recommended by vets and trainers worldwide. Anxiety experts believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system and may release calming hormones like endorphins or oxytocins.

Where to Buy: The Thundershirt for Dogs is available in sizes XXS to XXL, and is sold in Heather Grey, Blue Polo and Pink Polo. The Thundershirt for Cats is available in sizes S, M and L, and comes in Heather Grey. Both products can be personalized with custom embroidery for an additional charge.

Price: Retail price for dogs and cats starts at $39.95.

Holiday Offer: For a limited time, the company is offering a FREE personalized stocking and a squeaky toy for holiday purchases! Simply use code GIFT12 at checkout and be sure to type the name you want embroidered in the “Gift Notes” box.

New FURminator Dog Grooming Tools

Everyone wants to look their holiday best all the way down to hair and nails…for your pets, too! We all know and love the FURminator deShedding tools but if you are looking for the perfect stocking stuffer, check out FURminator’s new pet grooming products that include nail clippers, nail grinders, slicker brushes, rakes, combs, dual brushes and curry brushes.

You can help tackle pet shedding by brushing your dog daily; it not only detangles and smooths fur but it also helps remove excess hair and distributes oils across skin and coat. Nail trims are also important for that holiday look not to mention preventing sore paws, legs and hips. Those trims need to be done on a regular basis, usually every 3 or 4 weeks (so this is definitely the gift that keeps on giving). FURminator’s Nail Grinder and Nail Clippers make trimming at home safe, easy and painless.

The new products were designed by FURminator to provide high quality grooming performance. They include bendable, FUR-flex necks and ergonomic durable grip handles to ensure an enjoyable experience for pets and pet parents, and anti-microbial additives and other safety features to protect pets from harm.

Where to Buy: FURminator products are sold at pet specialty stores, professional pet groomers, veterinary practices and rescue organizations, and are also available online at

Retail price: MSRP $14.99-39.99.

ModaPet Cinnamutt & Green with Envy Bowls

Want food and water bowls for your pets as pretty as your holiday decorations? Check out the new Cinnamutt and Green with Envy food and water bowls by ModaPet, released just in time for the holiday season.

“Finally a bowl that you don’t have to hide for holiday guests,” Miller said.  “These are great because they are very festive for the holidays, but are purposely void of pictures or symbols so they can stay long after the lights come down and stockings are all packed up.”

And, best of all, the bowls are as safe and durable as they are stylish. Each bowl features BPA-free composites, is made of food grade polymer, is microwavable, dishwasher safe and extremely durable. The ModaPet bowls are also constructed with non-slip bases to help keep bowls in place while pets eat.

Price: ModaPet offers 11 unique bowl designs in suggested retail prices ranging from $14.95-$24.95.
