Just Say No! (To Puppy Mills)

Help the Texas Humane Legislation Network

Continue to Protect Animals in Texas

The program was implemented in September 2012 after the passage of HB 1451 – the Commercial Dog & Cat Breeder Act.

Does Your Dog Take You For A Walk?

The Easy Walk Harness Review

The claim. Does your dog take you for a walk? Have aching arms? Well look no further, the  Easy Walk® Harness by PetSafe will turn struggle and a frustration into an enjoyable walk. The difference between this harness and others is the Easy Walk has a front chest attachment for a leash. Which helps you steer your dog to the side making it is easier to redirect his attention toward you. A regular harness is designed to pull against the full body weight of your dog by lifting them in efforts to prevent pulling. The Easy Walk’s chest strap rests across your dog chest applying a gentle pressure under their arms, not on the throat, so there is no chocking. The Easy Walk let’s you take the lead and enjoy the freedom of a stress-free walk.

No More Throwing Slimy Tennis Balls

Hyper Pet’s K-9 Kannon Review

The claim. Hyper Pet’s newest ball launcher is called the K-9 Kannon and promises to save your arm from wear and tear and eliminate throwing slimy tennis balls. It is sold with a single tennis ball, in the built-in ball holder, but you can store an extra one inside the launcher’s barrel. Launching a ball is a simple three-step process, place a ball in the barrel, pull back on handle and pull the trigger. You can then reload without touching a slimy ball by pushing the muzzle down on the ball without getting your hands dirty.
