Dogfriendly.Com Releases Its 2013 Report Card for The Pet Travel Industry – Progress Was Made But There Is Still Work To Do To Better Serve Travelers With Pets











DogFriendly.com’s Len Kain and Dog Toby on the Boston T Subway Platform


(PRWEB) April 22, 2013

DogFriendly.com (http://www.dogfriendly.com), a publisher of dog travel guides, announced that it has graded the United States pet travel industry. And how did they do? That depends. Improving were hotels, restaurants, air travel, camping and shopping. Continuing to miserably fail are intercity trains and buses, which don’t allow pets at all. “The overall conclusion is that the United States has a ways to go to be as pet-friendly as Europe for traveling dogs and their human companions” said Len Kain, Editor of DogFriendly.com.

Lodging:  A : Pet-friendly hotels available almost everywhere. B&Bs and Vacation Rentals are also available. Some hotels have special pet programs.

Campgrounds: B+ : Most campgrounds allow dogs, but there are restrictions. There have been improvements in pet access to state parks.

Airlines: B- : The big problem remains – most dogs must fly in cargo. For smaller dogs, airports have pet relief areas and overall easier travel.

Nationwide Trains/Buses: F : What can we say? No dogs are allowed on Amtrak or Greyhound. Not even small dogs in carriers. In Europe, leashed dogs of all sizes are allowed on trains. This must change.

Local Transit: C+ : Small dogs allowed on many city public transit systems; Large dogs allowed on a few. In most cities it is possible but sometimes tricky to get cab service with a larger dog.

Parks: B+ :Many parks have eased restrictions on dogs. The exception is the National Parks. State parks are much better. Some city parks remain too restrictive.

Off-Leash Parks: B+ : There are over a thousand off-leash parks and most are open to visiting dogs; some require local permits and fees which makes it difficult for travelers.

Beaches: C+ : Most beaches don’t allow dogs. You can find a dog-friendly beach in most areas, but you have to look.

Restaurants: B : For the most part, the debate about dogs at outdoor patios is over and dogs are allowed. Many states and cities have clarified this recently. In Europe, a restaurant can allow dogs inside. Why not here? 

Shopping: B- : Most open-air shopping centers allow dogs as do many stores. Indoor malls usually don’t. Can this change?

Attractions: B- : Some outdoor attractions allow dogs; most indoor ones do not. There are many things to do with a dog if you look carefully. 

Pet Sitters: B : High end hotels often offer pet sitting. There are also doggy day care and day kennel facilities. Or you can call a pet sitter in the area you’re visiting.

Question by Mitch Brooks: What Minnesota animal could have made two pinpoint marks on my dog, and cause serious bleeding?
My dog came in this morning after being out for the night, with most of her side covered in blood. After washing her and looking her over, I found two tiny marks, kind of like a spider bite, but about an inch apart, and the skin around the “bite” was bare in about a 3″x 4″ patch. I live in Northern Minnesota, and it’s winter right now, so I have no idea what could have done this. Any ideas?

Best answer:

Geez, I don’t know – HOW ABOUT YOU ASK HER VET!!!

New Dog Treats and Cat Treats Made with Organic Wheatgrass

New Dog Treats and Cat Treats Made with Organic Wheatgrass











Pet Greens(R) Dog Treats


Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) February 13, 2008

Bell Rock Growers, the pioneer grower and supplier of green nutrition pet products, adds new recipes to its popular line of healthy dog treats and healthy cat treats made with certified organic wheatgrass. Formerly called Grass Goodies®, the newly branded and expanded Pet Greens® Treats will be showcased this week with exclusive show specials for retailers and distributors at H.H. Backer’s 20th Annual Pet Industry Show & Educational Conference in Baltimore (Booth #408).

Pet Greens Treats come in four tasty recipes: Roasted Chicken or Deep Sea Tuna semi-moist treats for cats; Roasted Chicken or Savory Beef jerky-style treats for dogs. All four varieties of Pet Greens Treats are made with wholesome ingredients, including certified organic wheatgrass. Recipes contain no wheat gluten, no corn, and no artificial colors or flavors.

According to Bell Rock Growers Co-founder Catherine Hoffmann, the company’s passion for Pet Greens began with her personal quest for greater well being. “After experiencing the healing qualities of wheatgrass in my own life, I learned green nutrients also improve our pets’ health,” says Hoffmann. “We developed Pet Greens to provide quality pet nutrition similar to green food supplements people include in their own diets.”

Wheatgrass is packed with high concentrations of chlorophyll, active enzymes, carotene, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients known to promote healthy gums and digestion, detoxification and development of healthy blood and muscle tissue. Wheatgrass also satisfies pets’ instinctual cravings for greens, providing a safe alternative to harmful household plants and chemically treated outside grasses.

Bell Rock Growers Co-Founder Marty Walls partnered with Hoffmann in 1996 to launch the pet product industry’s first nationally distributed live wheatgrass, called Pet Grass®, and catnip with major retailers and independent stores. The innovative duo created another industry first when they incorporated green nutrition into Pet Greens Treats, providing pets with healthy, convenient treats for training and rewards between meals. “Bell Rock Growers has earned a solid reputation among retailers and consumers as a premium supplier of affordable green nutrition products for pets,” says Walls. “Our Pet Greens Treats set the benchmark for quality, convenience and originality in pet nutrition.”    

Pet Greens Treats have a suggested retail price of $ 3.99 for 3 oz. packages of semi-moist cat treats and $ 5.29 for 4 oz. packages of jerky-style dog treats. Retailer prices may vary.

Based in San Marcos, Calif., Bell Rock Growers is a certified organic grower of live wheatgrass and the pioneer supplier of green nutrition products for pets. Bell Rock Growers’ complete line of products Powered with Green Nutrition™ include: Pet Greens® Live Pet Grass® and Catnip; four varieties of Pet Greens Treats for dogs and cats; Pet Greens Garden self-grow wheatgrass kits; and an all-natural grooming line with wheatgrass.

Retailers and distributors are invited to visit Bell Rock Growers at booth #408 for free samples and exclusive H.H. Backer show offers in Baltimore May 16-18, or visit http://www.bellrockgrowers.com.

Whip Hand Cosmetics Featuring Model Nia Scott in the “Nia” Lip Gloss


Detroit, MI (PRWEB) May 10, 2012

Whip Hand Cosmetics, the edgy, upstart Detroit-based cosmetics company is taking its first full collection of “Made in Detroit” color cosmetics and skin care products to The Makeup Show NYC, Booth 2F 22, May 13 – 14, 2012 at The Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.

The mission: To prove that the Motor City not only produces automobiles, techno music and the best Coney dogs in the world, but also one-of-a-kind cosmetics that thrill and dazzle makeup professionals and cosmetics lovers alike.

“We chose The Makeup Show NYC to roll out Whip Hand Cosmetics’ color collection because not only is it the largest pro-only makeup and beauty event in New York City, but also because we wanted to expose one of the world’s epicenters of fashion and beauty to the incredible things that are happening in Detroit” says Riese Lauriat, Whip Hand Cosmetics Founder and Chief Makeup Artist. “There is beauty being created here in Detroit. And Art. And jobs. And hope. We want others to feel that.”

The Makeup Show NYC marks Whip Hand Cosmetics’ official entry into the cosmetics and beauty space.

All of Whip Hand Cosmetics’ color cosmetics are manufactured locally in Metro-Detroit in small lots. Lauriat prototypes new colors and products and then works with professional makeup artists and clients to field test the concepts, gather feedback and then tweak them prior to producing the final product.

Whip Hand Cosmetics will be unveiling more than 80 new cosmetics products at The Makeup Show NYC, including:


    More than 40 trend-setting eye pigments that give artists the ability to blend and differentiate their work like never before.
    30 one-of-a-kind Crème Eyeshadows that match or complement the Whip Hand Cosmetics Pigment Collection colors.
    Six sumptuous Lip Crèmes that provide the ultimate in workability – in shades that can be built on each other, creating one-of-a-kind looks for lips.
    Six exclusive Crème Blushes
    Set The Stage Primer ™ – Professionally-formulated makeup primer designed to provide the perfect base for foundation and color application.
    The first products in Whip Hand Cosmetics’ skin care line, including its Strike It Rich! Deep Cleansing Face Oil™, CTRL+ALT+DELETE Makeup Remover™ and Give Good Face Rosewater Face Tonic and Toner™.

The company will also be debuting its Power Tools Vol. I™ Pro Makeup Brush Collection, a collaboration between Whip Hand Cosmetics, MuseBeauty.pro and Esum™ Brushes – the hottest new premium makeup artist brush on the market.

The Special Edition makeup brush set contains seven Esum™ brushes hand-picked by Lauriat to provide artists with the best tools to complement the unique properties of Whip Hand Cosmetics’ innovative crème eye, lip and face products. Power Tools Vol. I™ will be available for sale at the Whip Hand Cosmetics booth at The Makeup Show and will be bundled with a special Whip Hand Cosmetics Pro Skin Prep set.

“We’re especially thrilled about the Power Tools Vol. I by Esum makeup brush set,” said Lauriat. “We’ve been field testing Esum’s brushes for months and we’re blown away. Once artists and customers experience them, we think they’ll be fans for life. This is the kind of brush that will quickly become an essential in every good pro kit and we’re honored that Esum™ and MuseBeauty.pro agreed to collaborate on creating this first co-branded collection with Whip Hand Cosmetics.”
