A Great Idea for Dachshund Households!

Shayna Meliker, Vetstreet

When you have Dachshunds in the house, they all want to eat their food AND everyone else's food. This is a great idea. I just wish it wasn't so expensive! 

2 out of 3 are food stealers! Guess which ones? :)
WonderBowl Selective Feeder
If your dog secretly snacks on your cat's kibble every time you try to give her a meal, new technology from Our Pet's may be a solution for your dinnertime dilemma. With the WonderBowl Selective Feeder, a unique tag on each pet's collar signals for the lid on their dish to open. The infrared sensors keep animals in multi-pet homes from eating out of one another's dishes. (WonderBowl Selective Feeder, $89.99; WonderBowl Tag, $10.99)

TOM FOUND SOME GREAT TIPS ON-LINE for Wolf-like eaters: 
1) Put a ball in the middle of dog food bowls to make it harder for the dog to eat all the food at once.
2) Turn the bowl over if it has grooves underneath and fill the grooves with the food

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
