PET ADOPTIONS ARE ON THE RISE: SIMPLE TIPS FOR BOTH FIRST-TIME AND EXPERIENCED PET OWNERS LIFESTYLE EXPERT AND ‘CAT MOM’ SHARES WAYS TO KEEP OUR PETS HAPPY AND HEALTHY Cheryl Nelson, Lifestyle Expert and Cat Mom BACKGROUND: As many Americans looked for comfort and companionship during the lockdown, animal rescues across the country saw a spike in adoptions and foster applications. In fact, the ASPCA saw a nearly 70% increase in animals going to foster care and finding forever homes than in the previous year. Whether you’re a first-time pet owner or a veteran that has been spending more time at home with their furry companions, anytime is a good time to explore new ways to keep our pets happy, safe and comfortable. On March 29, Lifestyle Expert and ‘Cat Mom’ Cheryl Nelson will be available to share simple and convenient ways to look after your pets’ overall well-being and how to promote a healthy, safe and comfortable atmosphere for the animals in your life. She will also share her personal story of life hunkered down with her cats and how she is preparing herself and her precious kitties for their post-COVID routines at home. Some of Cheryl’s tips will include: Create a Special Space for the New Member of Your Family: Preparing your home for your new friend before they arrive is key! Map out the space in your house where will they eat, sleep, and do their business. Doing this ahead of time saves you stress and avoids later confusion for the animal. Pet Parent Essentials: Get everything you need to make you and your pet comfortable in your home. Items like scoop-free, self-cleaning litter boxes are a convenient solution for pet parents. They provide better odor control and will reduce dust in your home creating a safe and comfortable environment. This is a great way to begin a routine that will work for pet owners preparing for a post-COVID lifestyle. Preparing for Post-COVID Life: Once pet parents go back to work and are no longer ‘hunkered down’ at home, separation anxiety is likely to happen. Prepare your pets (and yourself!) by sticking to a daily routine and by setting up the essentials ahead of time. For cat owners, having a litter box with a health counter that tracks how many times your cat uses the box is a convenient way to detect early signs of health issues and keep your beloved cats in optimal health while you are away during the day.

(Knoxville, Tenn.) – Making a splash at the 2012 SuperZoo show, Drinkwell® by PetSafe®
introduced three new additions to its expanding line of popular pet fountains.

“We’re really excited to showcase our newest Drinkwell fountains at this year’s SuperZoo,” said Sean
Rowe, Managing Director of Drinkwell® by PetSafe. “Whether built for the indoors or outdoors, they all
feature design, style and function for both pets and owners to enjoy.”
The Drinkwell® Zen Fountain continuously circulates and filters
pets’ water, keeping it cleaner and fresher than a stagnant bowl. The
Zen Fountain holds one gallon of fresh water and the stainless steel
design is easy to clean, more hygienic and looks great in the home.
Its extra-wide free-falling stream aerates the water for freshness,
which helps encourage pets to drink more water. Additionally, a
replaceable charcoal filter removes bad tastes and odors.
The Drinkwell® Outdoor Dog Fountain is the largest capacity
fountain on the market, made with high-impact UV resistant
plastic for placement inside the home or out. Dual reservoirs keep
it filled longer and make refills simple. Features two methods of
filtration, a large foam filter to catch big particles and debris
before they clog the pump. The 3-layer charcoal filter removes
smaller particles and enhances the water’s freshness by removing
bad tastes and odors. A patented free-falling stream entices pets to
drink more water and the current inside the bowl helps move
debris towards the filters, providing the best hydration solution for
your dogs!
The Drinkwell® Lotus Pet Fountain is a multi-level ceramic
drinking fountain for pets that holds 50 ounces of water. The
fountain uses a foam filter to help remove particles and hair from
the water. The innovative design features water that bubbles up
into the top dish and spills out into the bottom dish through three
patented free-falling streams. With a simple turn of the housing
cap, the water flow intensity can be adjusted. The fountain dishes
are constructed using ceramic material, which can help prevent the
condition known as feline acne. The Drinkwell® Lotus Pet
Fountain offers a stylish, new design that helps give pets fresh,
filtered water while looking great in the home.

NEW BUSY BUDDY® NOBBLY NUBBLY CHEW TOY IS DURABLE & DELICIOUS!

-The Nobbly Nubbly chew toy holds natural rawhide treat rings for long-lasting playtime. –

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. PetSafe is pleased to introduce the new Busy Buddy® Nobbly Nubbly treat holding chew toy. The Busy Buddy® line of dog toys and treats is designed for longer lasting playtime. Each Busy Buddy® toy is created with a unique experience in mind, to help redirect potentially destructive behavior into positive playtime.

The Busy Buddy® Nobbly Nubbly features durable nylon ends and a compressible center to give dogs stimulating surfaces to chew. The Nobbly Nubbly also holds Busy Buddy® treat rings to reward dogs for good chewing behavior and to encourage extended playtime and the grooves on the center of the toy can even be filled with smearable treats like cheese or peanut butter.

“So often we see dogs play with their toys for a few minutes and then want something else,” said PetSafe Brand Manager Robin Hawn. “These toys are a great option because not only do the rawhide rings keep them entertained for longer, but the smearable treat option allows owners to give their dogs more treat variety with the same toy, making it a fun new experience every time.”

To use, screw apart the Nobbly Nubbly and place a rawhide treat ring on either side of the center piece. Screw the toy back together and let the fun begin! Each Nobbly Nubbly toy is packaged with 4 natural rawhide treat ring refills. Refills are also available separately in 16-piece packs.

The Nobbly Nubbly is top rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning and available in four sizes: extra small for dogs under 10 lbs., small for dogs 10-25 lbs., medium for dogs 25-50 lbs., and large for dogs 50-90 lbs.

THE NEW BUSY BUDDY® MAGIC MUSHROOM TURNS A DOG’S MEALTIME INTO PLAYTIME!

-The Magic Mushroom helps prevent dogs from consuming their food too fast while providing entertainment and stimulation. -

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. PetSafe is pleased to introduce the new Busy Buddy® Magic Mushroom™ toy and meal dispenser in one. The Busy Buddy® line of dog toys and treats is designed for longer lasting playtime. Each Busy Buddy® toy is created with a unique experience in mind, to help redirect potentially destructive behavior into positive playtime.

The Busy Buddy® Magic Mushroom™ randomly dispenses small portions of a dog’s meal instead of giving him full access to an open food bowl. By extending mealtime, the Magic Mushroom™ helps prevent dogs from consuming food too quickly.

The multi-functional Magic Mushroom™ not only slows down food consumption, but also turns mealtime into playtime. As the toy is tipped, flipped and rolled, kibble will randomly dispense to encourage further play. By increasing activity levels during mealtime, the Magic Mushroom™ can be used as a tool to assist with weight management efforts.

To use, simply twist off the base to load with kibble and let the fun begin! Treat dispensing windows under the cap can be adjusted to increase the challenge over time.

The Magic Mushroom™ is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning and is available in two sizes: small for dogs under 20 lbs., and medium/large for dogs over 20 lbs.

Meow Serving Lickety Stik for Felines!
PetSafe announces a feline extension to their popular line of liquid treats

KNOXVILLE, TN (July 17, 2012) – Lickety Stik® is going to the cats! The PetSafe® team is excited to introduce the first feline additions to join the Lickety Stik family this July. 

Following the success of the Lickety Stik treat line for dogs, the PetSafe team knew they wanted to create something that would specifically cater to the feline community. “From the beginning,m feline pet parents have been interested in Lickety Stik. They wondered if the Lickety Stik treat was feline friendly or if their cats would enjoy the liquid treat,” comments Tracey Quillin, Category Manager at PetSafe. “While several multi-pet households were sharing the Lickety Stik with both their dogs and cats, we knew we wanted to create something that would specifically cater to a cat’s distinctive needs.”

To accomplish this goal, the Lickety Stik team reworked the design of their unique roller-ball dispenser, making it smaller and easier for the feline tongue to grip. They also developed new flavors cats naturally crave, including Chicken, Turkey, Tuna, Salmon, Dairy and Beef.

One thing the Lickety Stik team kept the same was their commitment to using 100% all-natural ingredients to support a healthy diet and lifestyle. Just like the Lickety Stik for Dogs, the Feline Lickety Stik allows pets to enjoy an incredibly tasty, palatable reward with a fraction of the calories found in other conventional treats. There is just 1 calorie in every 20 licks!

Cats are known for their independence, and with the Feline Lickety Stik both pet and parent will savor
the chance to interact more and it can even help train and socialize kitty. Each 0.84 fluid ounce bottle is specially packaged with a screw-on cap for mess-free treating. The Feline Lickety Stik boasts over 250
licks per bottle, with a suggested retail price of $2.99.

The Lickety Stik family of products is available exclusively at independent pet specialty retailers (available immediately), Pet Supplies Plus (available beginning immediately), PetSmart (September) and online merchants. For more information visit www.PetSafe.net/LicketyStik.

Give a Lick for New Lickety Stik

 

 Unique, all-natural liquid treat lets parents reward their pups, one yummy lick at a time

KNOXVILLE, TN (July 27, 2011)

 

– Now there’s a smart, healthy and convenient way for pet parents

to get their pooches’ tails wagging. Introducing

 

Lickety StikTM, an innovative liquid pet treat. Made

with 100% all-natural ingredients, it’s the latest creation from PetSafe

behavior and lifestyle product solutions and services since 1991.

Developed for thoughtful pet owners, Lickety Stik is perfect for pets who deserve a tasty treat

while on-the-go. The natural flavors are delivered via a special roller-ball top. So dogs can

experience all of the tastiness and excitement of a moist treat without the sticky mess.

Lickety Stik also offers pet parents a healthy alternative to conventional treats, especially those

concerned about the weight of their dogs. “The ingredients are all-natural, dogs simply love the

flavor, and their owners love the fact there’s just 1 calorie in every 10 licks,” comments Randy

Boyd, PetSafe president and CEO.

Thanks to its pocket-friendly, compact size, Lickety Stik is handy at a moment’s notice. Boyd

mentions that pet parents can use it as a training aid to reward good behavior, or just to show how

much they care. “Plus, Lickety Stik is easy on the pocketbook, since each bottle dispenses over 500

licks,” Boyd explains.

Lickety Stik is available in three irresistible flavors – Savory Chicken, Braised Liver or Smoky Bacon.

The suggested retail price for each 1.69 fluid ounce bottle is $7.99 – less than a penny

a lick!

Pet parents are invited to look for the entire Lickety Stik line at their neighborhood specialty pet

store. To view a brief video showing Lickety Stik in action, visit
