• Ever Wondered If Dogs Dream?

    Have you ever watched your dog while they’re sleeping?

    There are certain behaviors that resemble things they might do while they’re awake such as whining, twitching noses, paddling legs and wagging tails.

    According to MIT News, Matthew Wilson, a professor of neuroscience at MIT, and Kenway Louie, a graduate student in 2001,  have studied the relationships between memory, sleep and dreams. They found that when rats were trained to run along a circular track for food rewards, their brains created a distinctive firing pattern of neurons (brain cells). The researchers repeated the brain monitoring while the rats were sleeping. Low and behold, they observed the same signature brain activity pattern associated with running whether the rats were awake or asleep. In fact, the memories played at approximately the same speed during sleep as when the rats were awake” – Pet Health Network

    Most human dreams occur in REM sleep. Dogs also experience REM sleep during which their breathing usually becomes irregular and shallow. Muscle twitching is normal during this time and if you look closely at your dog while he is in REM sleep, you will see rapid eye movements behind his eye lids. This is when normal awake behaviors can be observed such as whining, twitching and leg movement.

  • Pets And Fires – Keeping Your Pets Safe

    With all the recent fires in California, we wanted to share some tips for keeping your pets safe if evacuation is ever needed.

    These tips are from the American Red Cross. Please remember to always have a plan in place for evacuation for you, your family and four legged babies!

    In order to help firefighters find your pets, The Red Cross suggests the following:

     

    • Keep pets near entrances when away from home. Keep collars on pets and leashes at the ready in case firefighters need to rescue your pet. When leaving pets home alone, keep them in areas or rooms near entrances where firefighters can easily find them.
    • Affix a pet alert window cling and write down the number of pets inside your house and attach the static cling to a front window. This critical information saves rescuers time when locating your pets. Make sure to keep the number of pets listed on them updated.

     

    Listening to evacuation orders is crucial. It is smart to practice what you would do in an evacuation with these helpful tips:

     

    • The best way to protect your pets from the effects of a fire is to include them in your family plan. This includes having their own disaster supplies kit as well as arranging in advance for a safe place for them to stay if you need to leave your home.
    • When you practice your escape plan, practice taking your pets with you. Train them to come to you when you call.
    • In the event of a disaster, if you must evacuate, the most important thing you can do to protect your pets is to evacuate them, too. But remember: never delay escape or endanger yourself or family to rescue a family pet.

  • Top 5 Tips To Keep Your Pet Cool

    Posted on July 13th, 2018

    It has been HOT! Clear The Air is concerned about your pets and we want to make sure they are safe during the hot summer months.

    Here are a few tips to keep your pets cool during the heat waves we are experiencing:

    1. Make sure your pets have access to shade (if you do not keep them indoors) and plenty of water. Watch for symptoms of heat exhaustion such as excessive panting or labored breathing, increased heart rate and drooling.
    2. Your pets are smart! If there is cool concrete or tile to lay on, they will! Make sure to limit outdoor time to early morning or evening when it is still cool out.
    3. If you are out with your pet during the hot day, make sure to keep them out of direct sunlight. Do not take your dog for walks on hot pavement! Their pads can easily be burned by walking across hot sand or asphalt.
    4. Don’t take your pets in the car when it’s hot out. As much as they may love riding in the car and spending time with you, the worst thing you can do is leave them alone in the car even if you run into the store for a couple minutes. You will be surprised at how fast your car will heat up! The safest thing is to leave your pets at home where it is safe and cool.
    5. Provide plenty of fresh, clean water for your pets. When your pet pants, it effectively allows them to cool down because it helps evaporate fluids from the respiratory tract. By providing fresh water, you help replace these fluids and prevent dehydration.

     

  • Do You Know Our Story?

    While we distribute around the world, we truly are a small business and pride ourselves on carrying the highest quality odor eliminating products that are safe for our environment and 100% made in the USA!

    We would like to share our story with you about how Earth Care Products was born:

    Hello, I am Bill Vaughan founder and owner of Clear the Air, Earth Care Products. Over 20 years ago I was working in corporate America as an engineer/marketing executive when the trend of corporate downsizing was in full swing. Three times I had a comfortable job making good money for a good company. Three times those companies were bought out or merged, making my job and many others either redundant or unnecessary. But I hold no grudges; instead I took my lesson to the streets and went into business for myself.

    A friend of mine told me about a small company that had a “miracle” product for removing odors. I was so impressed with the way the product removed odors I decided to buy into the company. Over 16 years ago Earth Care Products was born which manufactures and sells odor eliminating products through pet stores (PetCo), on line, and pest control distributors. One of the things that I like best about our product is that it is all natural and non toxic. It will not hurt mother earth and it is safe even if you or your pet eats it.

    We do all our manufacturing and packaging in the USA . Product assembly and shipping is done at Partnership With Industry (PWI). PWI provides job preparation, job placement and ongoing workplace support for adults with disabilities. PWI assists their clients to find meaningful work, earn a paycheck and achieve the pride and independence that employment brings. I feel this is a great opportunity for our company to serve our community.

    I invite you to try our products, I know you will find they work better than any other product you have tried for removing odors. We offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. Just call us if you have any questions.

    If you are interested in distributing our products please contact me.  bvaughan@cleartheair.com

  • Hot Weather Bringing Out Stinky Smells?

    Summer is upon us and with hot weather usually comes stinky smells!

    Sometimes odors can surface from dog runs, urine saturated concrete, closed up rooms and more when it is hot out. We have lots of customers who use our Pet Odor Eliminator on concrete floors and carpets during the hot months of the year. All you have to do is simply sprinkle granules on the area where odor is the strongest. Vacuum or sweep up the granules after 24 hours and the odor will be gone!

    If you have any artificial or even real grass that your pets frequently use for the restroom, our Odor Eliminating Bucket can be sprinkled directly on the grass to eliminate any foul odors. This is a great alternative to sprays that will kill your grass and can be harmful to pets. Clear the Air is safe even if ingested so you don’t have to worry about any harmful side affects to your pets or children!

    Another great use for Clear the Air during the hot summer months is your trash cans. Are you overwhelmed by your trash can odor when you are in the garage? Maybe you have a dumpster that the odor just won’t leave. Here are some tips to eliminating trash can odor:

    1.  Hang an Odor Remover Bag in each trash can.
    2.  Hang an Odor Remover Bag over the trash cans.
    3.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup of Odor Eliminator granules on the bottom of the trash can.
    4.  Add more granules on top of trash as needed.

  • Do You Have A Mystery Odor?

    Do you have an odor and you can’t figure out where it is coming from?   It is so frustrating to constantly smell an odor that you cannot seem to figure out where it is coming from.

    Clear The Air works so well that it does not even have to come in contact with the odor source! It will literally draw in odors like a magnet and neutralize them, without any fragrances or perfumes.

    Mystery Odor“I had a weird smell coming from the closet of a home I just bought. It was so strong I smelled it every time I would walk by that area of the house. I decided to try out the Odor Eliminating Bags and hung two in the closet where it smelled the worst and was amazed when less than 15 minutes later the smell was completely gone!!!” -Vanessa

    How to Eliminate Mystery Odor:

    • Hang 2 bags in every room you smell the odor.  If the room is larger than 100 square feet add an additional bag for every 100 square feet.
    • If you think the odor is in the carpet or on furniture, sprinkle the Earth Care granules on the carpet and or furniture, leave down 24 hours and vacuum up.
  • How Long Does the Earth Care Odor Remover Bag Last?

    Posted on March 26th, 2018

    Today’s helpful hint

    How long will the Earth Care Odor Remover Bag last?
    Typically the bag will last 3 months after it is removed from the plastic.  (It will last indefinitely in the plastic.)
    It does depend on the types of odors it is being used on.
    For example, for a dead rodent odor it will typically last 3 months, so the bag will typically outlast the stink from the carcass.
    If it is being used for strong cigarette odor it may only last a few days or weeks.

    How you can I tell if the bag is no longer removing odors?
    If you hang a bag and the odor is gone for a time period but returns, that indicates that the bag is “full” and you need to add more bags.   Or if you smell the bag and it has an odor that also indicates the bag is “full”.

    What do you mean the bag is “full”?
    Think of the bag as a sponge.  Odor is drawn into the bag and the Earth Care Mineral inside absorbs the odor.  The molecular structure of Earth Care consists of billions of microscopic pores, which gives it a large surface area (exceeding the size of a football field). This enables Earth Care to absorb phenomenal amounts of odors.  Once “full” it becomes saturated and can no longer absorb odors.
