While looking through a pet catalog, I came across a few items that really interested me and wondered if anybody out there has used any of them or knows anything about them:
An electronic flea/tick repeller:

Frankly I think they are a waste of your money.. flea & ticks need either the chemical type deterents.. like "Revolution" or if you want a natural type product.. I would say .. diatomaecous earth ( food grade not pesticide grade ) to powder your dog..
As far as training.. paper works just as well..

The pee post is supposed to attract your doggy with pheromones so that they pee in one spot. I don't know if it works or not...
Fer the chews, you'd have to taste them to see if they're too salty (a lot of treats are..) :)

I would consider the pee post, at least it is not to much money to lose if it does not work. Although I wonder if it might attract other animals into your yard to pee as well.

Never thought about that! :eek: We have a six foot chain link fence all the way around, so if something got in, it may not be able to get back out! :D
Thanks for the replies!

Pheromones are supposed to be species specific so it should not really affect other animals unless they are really good doggy predators...
