Citrus Magic Litter Box Odor Eliminator

We have three cats and they share one litter box. It gets smelly fast. I clean the box at least once a day, and often twice a day. Until a year ago I kept a can of aerosol air freshener next to the litter box, which I would spray after cleaning the box, but it didn’t do a great job. Citrus Magic Litter Box Odor Eliminator does the trick. After cleaning the box, I sprinkle the white powder over the surface of the litter, then mix it in with the litter scoop. The bad smell goes away, replaced by a pleasant citrus fragrance. The cats don’t mind it. One 11.2 ounce container lasts about 2 months.

Glowdoggie Illuminated Dog Collar

The Glowdoggie Ultra is a German-engineered LED lighted dog collar. It allows you to see your dog at night, at a distance. I have had my Glowdoggie collar for about 4 months now. As a professional dog trainer I have seen many, many different collars, and this collar far exceeds the run of the mill LED collar in a number of ways.

Firstly it is waterproof. I have tested this thoroughly, and it lives up to its claim of being 100% waterproof. Secondly, it is compatible with rechargeable batteries. This is a big plus if you are using an LED collar regularly. The company also guarantees their collars for 2 years. After four months of regular usage, I see literally no wear and tear on this thing, so I think it will far exceed the 2 year warrantee.

The biggest plus of these collars are the fact that they are intensely bright. With a dog off leash at over 100 yards the collar in clearly visible with no other lighting around. This is partly due to the fact that unlike many LED collars the Glowdoggie does not flash but instead remains a constant source of light. Contrary to my initial thoughts, this does not have any noticeable drain on the batteries compared to some of the other battery powered collars that flash.

All in all this is one of the best LED collars available on the market today, and comes to you, batteries included.
