San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 14, 2011

New online retail business P.L.A.Y. (Pet Lifestyle and You) just passed a successful one-month mark in its business, offering pet owners across the US and Canada an affordable, artistically-designed alternative in designer dog beds.

“We can honestly say that we love what we do, and starting this business is one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Well, besides getting our own dog, of course,” said William Chen, founder and owner of P.L.A.Y. “We’ve taken that love we have towards our pug and created products that dog-lovers everywhere can appreciate in terms of design, environmental-friendly materials, washable construction and price.”

Recognized for its ergonomic construction made with recyclable fill materials, P.L.A.Y. makes designer beds for pets of all sizes. From small beds to extra large dog beds suitable for breeds up to 110 pounds, there is a wide selection of designs and styles, with more in the works.

After solidifying its online ecommerce store, P.L.A.Y. plans to work with brick and mortar retail stores nationwide to allow consumers to physically see and test its products before buying. With quality products and fashionable designs, P.L.A.Y. anticipates expanding into the international market to carve out its own reputation for excellence and care.

“We offer something that is unique,” said Chen. “We understand that dog owners want to give the best to their furry friends, so we make that possible at a great price, which is different from many of our competitors. You can get an environmentally-conscious dog bed that is fashionable, made with quality construction and still affordable—all in one pet-friendly package.”

About P.L.A.Y.

P.L.A.Y. (Pet Lifestyle and You) began with the mission to create the perfect dog bed for Momo, the pug belonging to P.L.A.Y. owner and founder William Chen. Collaborating with a manufacturer of infant and children products for the ultimate standard in safety and comfort, the company paired with San Franciscan designer David Collins to offer aesthetically pleasing, top quality designs. Each pet product is made with recycled materials, making P.L.A.Y. dog beds great for the environment, your pet and your interior design.

Pet dogs love lazing around on the couch or lounging on the sofa just as much as we do. They probably like licking it and tearing it apart when frustrated too. Most pet owners who have not trained their dogs must have already gone through this ordeal.

If you want to save your furniture from potential damage by your dog, you must know how to deter him/her from climbing onto it in the first place. Given below are some methods and techniques that you can try. However, you need to be stern while doing so and not feel guilty, otherwise it will not work and your dog will continue sitting on the furniture.

Dog Training

Training your dog is the best method. It is very important that every dog go through this process. This should be undertaken when they are still pups, as learning and following commands at this stage of their life is really easy for them. Once they get habituated to getting onto the furniture, it will be really difficult for you to rid them of this habit. So, start early and urge your family to do the same. Reward your dog with treats for staying off furniture when asked to do so, and express your unhappiness if he/she tries to get onto it nonetheless. Reinforcement makes the training process a lot easier.

Buying Dog Furniture

Another good way of keeping your dog off the home furniture is to get some furniture for him/her. Dogs love to have a bed, a crate, or a kennel of their own rather than lying on the hard floor. This keeps them comfortable, as well as cozy and secure. Dog beds, kennels, and crates are available in any pet store. Initially, you may need to crate train your dog so that he/she gets used to it. You can also make use of kennel plans and kennel designs to build one yourself.

Using Commercial Aids

There are many products available commercially. These include repellents, alarms, spiked mats, and couch protectors. These are designed in order to discourage your dog from getting onto the furniture, as well as to protect the furniture from any damage and dog fur. This can be done in case your dog has not been trained.

Some More Tips

  • Keep the doors to areas with expensive furniture closed while going outdoors, or when these areas are not being used.
  • Establish and get your dog used to a comfort zone of his/her own in the house by providing food, water, and toys in that particular place. This way, he/she will spend most of the time in that place and stay away from the furniture.
  • For grown up dogs, use a leash even when inside the house, to block their access to the furniture by saying 'off' assertively. Do not pull him/her down from the furniture using the leash.
  • You can also attach a black thread across the front of the furniture and tie one of its ends to a pile of shake cans. As soon as your dog tries to get onto the furniture, the pile of shake cans will come tumbling down. This will make a loud noise and cause your dog to get back down.
  • You can throw balloons on your furniture when you go out, so that if your dog tries to climb onto it, the balloons will burst and make a loud noise.

Try the above mentioned techniques to deter your dog from climbing onto the furniture. Make sure you do not always give in to her/his demands. Remember, being a little strict will have long-term benefits.

Spring Hill, FL (PRWEB) October 30, 2006

MWR Enterprises has unveiled a new website called Pets-911.com. 12 months of research and development has produced a new level pet rescue and recovery tools to aid both the pet owner and the rescuer in terms of recovering the pet quickly and safely.

Our system holds over 100 points of data including, multiple points of contact, websites, email addresses and telephone numbers. Owners can easily update their information via Pets-911.com anytime of day. Contacts like a local animal rescue shelter, veterinarian, or a long distance third party who can relay information in case the owner is displaced in a natural disaster like those victimized by Hurricane Katrina.

To minimize further trauma to the lost pet or animal, the rescuer has information supplied by the owner such as pet demeanor around unfamiliar areas, new people and other animals, what kinds of food and drug allergies the pet has and what their reactions are. The owner can also add medical history. Data includes pet verbal commands, diet menu, feeding schedules, pet lives indoors or outdoors, housebroken, etc. This will change by species if a dog, cat, ferret, horse or other animal.

The Flash Drive USB unit is universal as it can be read by any Good Samaritan rescuer computer or laptop which could be any Windows, Apple or Linux operated system built since 1997. The data is entered by the pet owner who logs in to Pets-911.com. From there the user has both one free pet listing and any number of premium based pet listings.

Pets-911.com hosts the First Online International Pet Database Registry supporting 190 countries in 10 languages and is available to both free and premium-based users.

Premium pet listings also have added functionality of saving pet data locally to USB flash drive in two universal file formats: HTML and PDF. Since web browsers come bundled in most cases, common web language or HTML can be used regardless of Operating Systems used since 1997.

By running the software program from Pets-911.com, we bypass the usual software requirements needed by specific operating systems. Even if the rescuer has no Internet access, the USB flash drive will plug and play and open the computer or laptop internal web browser by working in an offline capacity. In non-emergency situations, the stored pet data can be printed in either format which is also beneficial for the owner to create when leaving their pet with a pet sitter or boarding kennel.

Better Solution than Microchipping?

USB technology works on 200 million computers worldwide. Microchipping has no where near that number of scanners available. Nearly anyone can use a flash drive once shown how. Up until now, the alternative and less convenient process for the rescuer is to transport a lost pet or animal to an authorized location to read the chip. By allowing any average person to rescue a pet, they can potentially bypass the process of sending a pet to the local pound which frees up already overcrowded animal rescue shelters nationwide saving valuable resources. While there are huge successes in microchipping, the technology has encountered more than a few false positives in recent past because newer microchip scanners have not always been tested for compatibility to read older chips according to credible sources. Our position is not to replace microchips but to enhance it with our system which increases the odds of successful recovery of lost pets.

Our chosen USB flash drive is water-resistant and comes with a 10-year manufacture warranty. Our testing confirms that this unit could be considered waterproof after removing the dust cap and submerging in a 6-foot deep pool for 30 minutes and driving over it with a one-ton vehicle. Under both extreme conditions the USB faithfully ran on multiple PCs and laptops without fail.

We also developed a storage wallet for pets which fits both small to large collars. Material is durable neoprene rubber (like scuba diver suits) and comes in various colors. It aligns with the collar band (like a belt through a belt loop) to help secure the USB flash drive cap and prevents the flash drive from hampering a small pet stride or becoming ripped off by extreme use or activities. It fits on horse halters or attaches to pet crates, bird cages or aquarium with simple modifications. A metal Pet ID tag informs rescuer that USB data is on the collar along with website and pet ID tag number in case the rescuer has no USB access.

Please Help Spread the Word

We wish to get information on this pet technology out to veterinarians, breeders, pet rescue shelters but also to local authorities, emergency organizations like FEMA, Homeland Security and the National Guard and the general public.

Doesn’t your pet deserve a sense of identity? See innovative couture pet products from Fourlegidentity.com, which identifies fine design for dogs and cats alike. Four Leg Identity has created an outlet for you (the pet owner) to find products that accommodate your style (modern, classic, preppy, sophisticated, etc), while bringing that unfailing fashion to your pet.

A new company has been launched designed to aid in couture pet products in addition to a pet resource for all your pet matters and concerns. With pet ownership at an all-time high, Four Leg Identity is focusing on creating an identity for your pet. ‘I felt it extremely important to offer a one-stop-shop where our customers could not only shop for ultra cool pet products, but a place to find information on pet health, disease, training, etc,' says Kari Raderstorf, co-founder of Four Leg Identity. Whether it be the pet boutique, which offers a distinct selection of pet products (dog beds, dog clothes, dog collars and pet grooming supplies), or the resource section which offers informational links to dog parks, pet health and pet care, Four Leg Identity is determined to be the one-stop-shop for its customers.

“I was bored looking at dog beds and dog clothes from the corporate owned pet stores (typical rubbish that caters to the bargain shopper),” said Kari Raderstorf, co-founder of Four Leg Identity. “The styles were stale with little variety. I was also discouraged when trying to locate pet boutiques as they are difficult to find with limited sizing and colors. I wanted to give Archie, our dog, a sense of his own identity, therefore I was on a hunt to find the most practical, yet fashion forward designs for him. After compiling a list of manufacturers and designers I wanted to purchase from, I knew I had to offer this to others, therefore, FourLegIdentity.com evolved.”

Four Leg Identity has partnered with talented designers and manufacturers, such as Crypton, West Paw, PetEgo, Diva Dog, DenHaus, Cloak and Dawgie and more, to offer its customers the highest in quality, a distinct aesthetic and a uniqueness that won’t be found at the ‘big box’ pet stores. Although pet identity is of the utmost importance, superior craftsmanship takes precedence as Four Leg Identity strives to deliver products that will last a lifetime

In Summary, Four Leg Identity is about pet identity and strives to offer the latest in couture pet products (from dog beds to dog collars to dog clothes to pet grooming supplies) as well as essential resources for all pet matters.

About Four Leg Identity:

Four Leg Identity, an Indiana-based, website-only Pet Product retailer, launched their site in January of 2009 out of a passion to give pet owners and their pets a sense of identity. Ironically, the concept started when the mother / daughter team was trying to comprehend the ‘big pet store’ mentality (typical rubbish that caters to the bargain shopper) while comparing that to the ‘boutique pet stores’ that are hard to find and do not necessarily carry the right size or color for that matter. In shopping for their own pets, they became discouraged and bored with the selections, therefore started researching pet designers, pet fashion and quality pet manufacturers to offer unique products to their dogs. While doing their due diligence and uncovering an amazing selection of pet products they felt the need to share their findings and realized the enormous need among passionate pet owners to give other pets an identity they deserve. Therefore, Four Leg Identity has evolved offering dogs, cats and their owners, high quality, unique and fashion forward dog beds, dog collars, dog clothes, pet grooming products and so much more.
