If your cat or dog is like most pets, it can experience separation anxiety when you are not home. Much like an infant, cats and dogs get nervous and anxious when their primary care giver is not around and these feelings do not go away until the care giver returns. There are a few ways to ease this anxiety. One great way is a Pet Snoedel. Pet Snoedels are unique bonding aids that are handcrafted to retain your scent. Cats and dogs have an incredible sense of smell. Cuddling with a Pet Snoedel that smells like their owner provides pets with a sense that their owner is near; which in turn relieves their separation anxiety.
Alleviating your pet’s separation anxiety is now easier than you think. With February approaching, Snoedel, Inc. is having a Valentine’s Day sale on all of their Pet Snoedels. Originally priced at $24.95, Pet Snoedels are now marked down to only $19.95 for this special time of the year. With a savings of 20% off the original price, it is the perfect time to buy a Pet Snoedel. This is a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift for your pet. Pet Snoedles can be used when your pet goes to the vet, while in its crate or when you are not home. You can be just a scent away with Pet Snoedel.
The holidays are coming and that may mean having to make the hard decision to board your pet. People choose to board their pets for a variety of reasons: vacationing out of town, visiting relatives for an extended period of time or even entertaining guests in their home who are allergic to cats or dogs. No matter the reason, choosing to board your pet can be stressful for the both of you.
Many pets experience anxiety while boarding. Because great kennel attendants are aware of this, many facilities allow you to pack a special toy or blanket for your pet to help ease their nerves. If you are boarding your pet at any time during the holiday season, be sure to pack a few things that will help reduce their stress.
Some great ideas include:
- An old T-shirt that you have worn to bed several nights in a row just prior to boarding your pet
- A Pet Snoedel
- A favorite toy
- Your pets favorite blanket or towel
Because a pets’ sense of smell is so keen, bringing along any of these items will make them feel more secure. A Snoedel doll, in particular, is a fantastic choice. Simply sleep with the doll or carry it close to you for several days and the special material will soak up your scent. When placed in the kennel with your pet, they will have something that smells like their favorite person: you!
For pets, travel can be stressful. Whether you take your pets with your or choose to board them in a professional facility, they are removed from the comforting routine of home. During travel, pets are inundated with new scents, smells and sounds, many of which can add to an increased level of anxiety in the animal.
Scent is one of the strongest ways we bond with our pets. Interesting tales of pets finding their way home after wandering off have been attributed to their sense of smell. One such tale can be found in the article ‘What Our Scent and Voice Mean to Our Pets’ on the Responsible Pet Ownership Blog. Read it and see what you think!
If you are planning a trip this holiday season, packing a great product like a Pet Snoedel can alleviate much of the stress your pets feel. The Pet Snoedel is a lovely piece of fabric that you, the owner, wear close to your body or sleep with during the night. Because the fabric soaks up your scent, placing it in a travel carrier or kennel with your pet can make them feel more at ease.
While bringing your pets along on your holiday can be a great option, do know that they will still be stressed. While, of course, they will be much happier with you than in a kennel, being taken out of their home will cause low levels of anxiety. Be sure to bring along a favorite toy and a Pet Snoedel to make traveling as stress-free as possible.
Anyone who owns a pet knows that the bond between human and animal is a strong one. Our pets greet us after a long day at work, sit with us when we’re down and snuggle with us at night, giving us both comfort and love. One of the strongest bonds we have with our pets is that of scent.
Think of all of the times your cat has rubbed its head against your leg to scent mark you after you’ve been away. How often have you been out of the house only to return and have your dog sniff your pant legs for minutes on end, soaking up all of the information you’ve brought home with you?
The creators of the Pet Snoedel know about this incredible bonding tool and have created a product that, in its simplicity, can calm your pets’ anxiety when you’re away. The Pet Snoedel is a piece of cloth, carefully sewn to ensure its safety. The pet owner sleeps with the Pet Snoedel or wears it close to their body for a few hours, allowing the fabric to soak up their scent.
When you leave the house, place the Pet Snoedel in your pet’s crate or on their favorite bed. Your pet will feel close to you throughout the day just by being near your scent. No more chewed socks, no more nests made out of dirty laundry and calm pets when you return. What could be better?
When you bring home a new pet, it’s important to develop a bond as early as possible. Working to develop this bond, particularly for the first six months of your pet’s life, will ensure that the animal-human bond is a strong one. Utilize one or more of these pet bonding aids to be sure that bond is strong.
Pet Snoedel – keep the Pet Snoedel close to your skin so the fabric can soak up your sent. Once the fabric carries your scent, leave it with your pet when you go to work for the day. Having your scent close will not only relieve any anxiety your pet may feel but will deepen the bond between you both.
Grooming Mitt – sit with your pet in your lap, put on a grooming mitt and stroke your pet. The activity will relax the both of you and help to develop the human-animal bond.
Short Lead – for dog’s in particular, this is a great bonding tool. Run a lead through your belt loop and attach it to your pet’s collar. Not only does this give you a great means by which to supervise your pet but will help strengthen the bond by keeping your pet by your side throughout the day.
There are many ways to establish and strengthen the bond between you and your pet. Beginning to bond with your pet while he or she is young will go a long way towards ensuring a happy and healthy adult pet.
