The Pet Matchmaker’s Favorite Five August 2014

At The Pet Matchmaker, the “dog days” of summer aren’t much different than any other time of year. They’re ALL dog days for us. (And cat, chicken and owl days too.) So, with that in mind, here is our latest Fave5.


Favorite Five August 2014

Pegasus Dog Collar 


More like a dog necklace than a dog collar, the Pegasus lets your pet make a serious fashion statement. Made of stainless steel that resists scratching, this is a dog collar I’m tempted to buy for myself. (You can get yourself a matching bracelet.) Other lovely styles available. The Pegasus can be yours for $87 at


Sunbeam Gourmet Dog Treat Maker


Looking to go all Martha-Stewart and make your own dog treats? This little baby can help. Works like a waffle iron to bake 4 fresh, homemade treats in 4 minutes. Recipes included. (I’m dying to know what the icing is made of…) I found this one at Amazon for $53.


Cat Tamboo


This eco friendly cat toy is 100% sustainable materials and manufactured in Montana, right here in the U.S.A. Made from sturdy and flexible bamboo, each Tamboo cat toy comes with a 4 different tips, 3 wild feathered and one raffia, for vegans. Order yours for $19.00 at

The Cat Tamboo in Action:


Animal Print


I recently stumbled upon these marvelous “animal prints” from a website named The Animal Print Shop. So many animals are represented, wild, domesticated, young and old — all beautifully photographed by animal lover and gifted commercial photographer, Sharon Montrose. So reasonably priced you’ll want to order a dozen! I LOVE these. This one is the Eagle Owl No. 2. Like all the prints, it starts at just $25. You’ll find them all at


“The Parlor” Chicken Coop


The perfect starter coop for DIY urban chicken farmers, this coop is suitable for 3 to 5 chickens and is handsome enough for any backyard. Nesting box has 2 nesting areas; enclosed chicken run is attached to protect chickens from predators. It SAYS it’s easy to assemble… but that really depends on your skills, no? Ships for free in the lower 48 states. I’ll bet you can taste those fresh, cruelty-free eggs now… $674.95 from
