WOOF stands for Working Out Our Fears. This blog hop was started by my pal Oz the Terrier to help reactive dogs overcome their issues.

The Kangaroo leash also has this rubber loop to absorb shock. There is nylon leash material where the loop is too. I think that is to prevent the rubber loop from overstretching. I have not yet pulled the leash hard enough to flatten out the loop. I imagine a big dog could pull hard enough to flatten out the leash, but I cant. The training aspect of this leash is the resistance a dog feels as they pull on the rubber loop. This way a dog feels the resistance before the leash is completely stretched out. I imaging that would lessen the jerk on a human’s arm. I don’t know for sure because I can’t pull that hard. Mom says it feels like I don’t pull as hard when we use the Kangaroo leash, so it must be working.

As a busy mom, I have to tell you: things that make my life easier make me very happy. We eat on paper plates a lot around here. While I am tempted by the ease of doing the same for my pets, if you’ve ever watched a dog try to eat out of a paper bowl you know that just ends in upended bowls wedged under a chair and food embedded in the kitchen floor, so stainless steel it is.

Here’s the bad news: according to NSF International, pet bowls are the 4th germiest place in the house, teeming with E. coli, Salmonella, yeast, and mold. This is exactly what you would expect when you leave a bowl of meat products sitting around. People? We’re lazy and don’t wash the bowls nearly enough, and that is just how it is.

Here, in an elegant form, is the solution: the Kinn KleanBowl, a stainless steel rim that sits on top of a sturdy, compostable bowl made from recyclable yet sturdy waterproof (yes!!) sugar cane fiber. Yup, you can use it for water too, so you eliminate that algae-goo that builds up if you bowl doesn’t go in the dishwasher every day.

My cat eats a lot of wet food and Brody get rehydrated raw, so we know all too well how dirty and crusty bowls get. That being said, Oily kibble residue isn’t much better. In addition for being a boon to time starved people like me, the KleanBowl is a great solution for busy vet clinics who need their staff to spend less time scraping uneaten leftovers off in the trash and more time replacing the catheter the god in cage 4 chewed out, yet again.

Clean. Convenient. Compostable. This is a bowl for the people. The KleanBowl retails for $19.95 and 50 count refills are available for $14.95 at the KleanBowl website. To keep up on all the innovative products form Kinn including what I believe to be the world’s finest pill splitter, check out the Kinn Facebook page.

1. Plastic bag: Perhaps the most common method; you simply slip an inverted plastic bag over your hand, pick up the pile, and then tie the bag shut and toss into the trash.

Pro: Plastic bags are free and easy to wad up to fit in a pocket. Or you can buy a style of leash that incorporates a stashed bag, such as Kinn’s Kangaroo Plus leash.

Kinn Inc. of Aliso Viejo, Calif., promoted its Kudose treat maker/pill concealer product at global Pet Expo.

“As this was Kinn’s first East Coast show, many retailers saw and brought for the first time our Kudose product,” said Alex McKinnon, the company’s CEO. “Kudose appeals to pet parents and veterinarians because it makes treat and pill giving fun. The pill splitter/crusher makes medicine preparation easy and accurate, while the treats are organic and ensure less nibbling around the pill so the consumer saves time and money.”

Another new product from Kinn is the Koala Plush-Comfort Collar, which has a Velcro tag silencer that not only keeps the tags from irritating the dog’s skin, but also prevents clanking, McKinnon said.

I received a sample of this product for the purpose of this review. All my opinions are my own.

Our pets are important to us, they are a part of your family. We put tags on their collars in case they get lost we hope someone will find them and return them home. This is a great idea and a good precaution to take but when it comes to the collar they are wearing all of the time we need to put a little thought in that as well. My dog wears his collar all of the time in case he gets lost his identification is right around his neck when needed. Since he will be wearing his collar so often I have decided it should be a comfortable one. Thankfully Kinn has come out with some great products I want to tell you more about. Here is a little information I received about this wonderful products.

The Kangaroo is a uniquely designed pet leash with a customizable super Soft Fleece Handle and shock absorber that provides unsurpassed comfort that both the dog and pet parent deserve. The 100% super soft fleece handle is not only comfortable and soft to the touch. But the diameter can also be adjusted to better match the size of the owner’s wrist and hand. Additionally, the leash’s nylon webbing is of the highest quality and is thus much softer to the touch. The Kangaroo’s shock absorber also reduces the sock and strain both on the pet parent’s arm and the dog’s neck when he makes an unexpected lunge, and compared to some other leashes’ shock absorbing function, Kinn’s is more secure, while being durable and providing much needed comfort.

The Kangaroo Plus dog leash provides added convenience of the Kache™ Poop Dog Dispenser. It connects to the Super Soft Fleece Handle with the immediate accessibility of poop bags or other stow able items such as keys, money, and/or an LED flashlight while keeping them hidden inside a stylish carrier that discretely dispenses bags.

The Koala is a stylish and cleverly designed dog collar with the worlds only 100% super soft Fleece liner for unsurpassed comfort. Traditional collars can cause comfort problems for many dogs, causing them to chew off their collar or simply run when they see the pet parent bringing it out. The Koala provides peace of mind to the pet parent, knowing that their dog is comfortable wearing the only collar in the world where 100% of the collar material touching the dog is super soft fleece with no nylon, plastic or metal parts to irritate his skin or pull at his fur. The pet parent in some cases will no longer have to take the collar on and off of keep the dog comfortable. Available in four sizes, the Koala also employs a unique adjustable buckle that keeps the collar in the desired position so it is less likely to inadvertently slide off the dog’s neck as well as a clever tag silencer with prevents the tags from clanking together. It also keeps them away from the dog’s skin for an even more comfortable fit.

The first thing I noticed about this collar is the fleece on the inside. Boy it is soft! It may be the softest thing my fingers have ever felt. I know my dog will be happy to wear this and I bet it won’t dig into this fur like all of his collars of the past. I think man’s best friend deserves the upgrade and you can get more information about their products by clicking here. Kinn™ products are available in select pet boutiques and veterinarian clinics as well as online at www.Amazon.com

Kinn™ Announces New KleanBowl™, the Convenient, Clean & Eco-Friendly Way to Feed Pets
New Disposable, Compostable No-Wash Pet Food Bowls Debuting at Global Pet Expo

Aliso Viejo, CA – March 2014 – Kinn™ today announced the launch of the new KleanBowl, a no-wash pet food bowl which is uniquely designed to save busy pet parents time while using eco-friendly, compostable food/water holders that are disposed of after each use, greatly reducing the risk of food contamination and health risks. With it, Kinn provides pet parents another useful, eco-friendly and healthy solution to help nurture the relationship and strengthen the bond they have with their pets. Kinn will debut the new KleanBowl at the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, FL on March 12th-14th, 2014.

The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) rated pet food bowls the 4th “germiest” place in the home, even over toilet bowls. With 165 million dogs and cats in the USA, feeding the family pet is one of the main causes of salmonella poisoning in toddlers, not to mention the rest of the family. It is recommended for pet parents to clean pet food bowls with hot water and soap after every meal, however most pet parents do not do this for a lack of a quick and convenient way to keep their pet’s bowl sanitary. This creates risks for pets’ health and happiness in the form of bacteria, mold and germs.

Kinn provides a unique solution to this issue with the KleanBowl, a pet food bowl with a stainless steel holder which secures a disposable liner out of reach of the pet to reduce issues with removing, eating, spilling or damaging the inner bowl. Unlike other offerings on the market, Kinn’s KleanBowl is easier to set up and remove the bowl with no mess or getting hands dirty and its non-skid base reduces bowl movement across the floor. (MSRP $19.95-24.95 with 7 refill bowls)

The disposable replacement bowls are made from 100% biodegradable, compostable and recyclable sugar cane fiber that is 100% tree and plastic free while offering the best value on a per bowl/serving basis (MSRP $14.95/50-pack). Optional lids are also available which enable pet parents to store food in fridge/freezer and use in the microwave or for traveling (MSRP $10.95/50-pack).

KleanBowl offers the pet parent peace of mind so that they know their pet has a clean, safe bowl for every meal. This is especially important for raw food or canned food which can spoil easily and leave behind bacteria and germs if not cleaned thoroughly. With the KleanBowl, there is no more need to wash and scrub the bowl or put it in the dishwasher, saving the pet parent time, water and energy.

Kinn Kleanbowl™ has a unique, disposable bowl with multiple patents pending:

•  Stainless steel holder to guard against the pet from removing, eating or damaging disposable bowl
•  Made from 100% biodegradable, compostable sugar cane fiber
•  100% tree and plastic free, made from sustainable resources
•  Biodegradable, recyclable and compostable
•  Microwaveable & freezer safe, and oil & cut resistant

Those wishing to learn more about KleanBowl and Kinn’s full product line can visit booth #4485 at the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, FL on March 12th-14th, 2014. Kinn™ products are available in select pet boutiques and veterinarian clinics.

Kinn™ Announces New Innovations that Provide Unique Solutions for Man’s Best Friend
New Plush-Comfort™ Pet Collars and Leashes Designed for Unsurpassed Comfort Debuting at Global Pet Expo

Aliso Viejo, CA – March 2014 – Kinn™ today announced two new additions to its line of pet products that help strengthen the bond and relationship between pets and pet parents. Kinn’s newest innovations, the Kangaroo™, Kangaroo Plus™ and Koala™, provide unique solutions to issues that both dogs and their owners have with standard dog collars and leashes. Kinn will be introducing the new Kangaroo and Kangaroo Plus dog leashes along with the Koala dog collar at the Global Pet Expo, Booth 4485 in Orlando, FL on March 12th-14th, 2014.

There are many issues a pet parent may have with their experience with traditional leashes. Most have materials which are uncomfortable to hold, including rough nylon webbing, which can abrade the pet parent’s skin and can be difficult to keep hold of while walking. Likewise, dogs have comfort issues with their collars which usually include the same rough nylon webbing, along with plastic or metal parts that can cause irritation of the dog’s skin and pull at his fur.

The Kangaroo is a uniquely designed pet leash with a customizable Super Soft Fleece Handle and shock absorber that provides unsurpassed comfort that both the dog and pet parent deserve The 100% super soft fleece handle is not only comfortable and soft to the touch, but the diameter can also be adjusted to better match the size of the owner’s wrist and hand. Additionally, the leash’s nylon webbing is of the highest quality and is thus much softer to the touch. The Kangaroo’s shock absorber also reduces the shock and strain both on the pet parent’s arm and the dog’s neck when he makes an unexpected lunge, and compared to some other leashes’ shock absorbing function, Kinn’s is more secure, while being durable and providing much needed comfort. MSRP $29.95

The Kangaroo Plus dog leash provides the added convenience of the Kache™ Poop Bag Dispenser. It connects to the Super Soft Fleece Handle with the immediate accessibility of poop bags or other stowable items such as keys, money, and/or an LED flashlight while keeping them hidden inside a stylish carrier that discretely dispenses the bags. MSRP $39.95

The Koala is a stylish and cleverly designed dog collar with the world’s only 100% super soft fleece liner for unsurpassed comfort. Traditional collars can cause comfort problems for many dogs, causing them to chew off their collar or simply run when they see the pet parent bringing it out. The Koala provides peace of mind to the pet parent, knowing that their dog is comfortable wearing the only collar in the world where 100% of the collar material touching the dog is super soft fleece with no nylon, plastic or metal parts to irritate his skin or pull at his fur. The pet parent in some cases will no longer have to take the collar on and off to keep the dog comfortable. Available in four sizes, the Koala also employs a unique adjustable buckle that keeps the collar in the desired position so it is less likely to inadvertently slide off the dog’s neck as well as a clever tag silencer which prevents the tags from clanking together. It also keeps them away from the dog’s skin for an even more comfortable fit. MSRP $19.95

Not only do the Kangaroo and Koala provide unsurpassed comfort, convenience and peace of mind, but they are also innovatively designed, stylish and attractive options at an affordable price. As man’s best friend and an important family member, every dog deserves a collar and leash designed with their needs in mind that is stylish while being as comfortable as possible, helping to strengthen the relationship between the pet and pet parent.

The innovative line of products will be displayed in impactful packaging with the key call out of “Feel the Super Soft Fleece Difference” so both pets and pet parents have the unsurpassed comfort they deserve. Several merchandising options will be available to assist retailers in meeting their shoppers’ needs. As with all of Kinn’s products, these Plush-Comfort™ collars and leashes were developed in collaboration with veterinarians and offer a satisfaction guarantee.

Those wishing to learn more about the Kangaroo, Koala and Kinn’s full product line can visit booth #4485 at the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, FL on March 12th-14th, 2014. Kinn™ products are available in select pet boutiques and veterinarian clinics as well as online at www.Amazon.com.

Kinn™ Kudose and Krocodile Praised for Multiple Advantages in Pet Treat and Pill Giving
Innovative Products Make Medication Giving Easy and Healthy with Customized Pill Delivery “Treats”

Aliso Viejo- CA- February 2014- The Kinn™ Kudose and Krocodile are two recently introduced innovative products that overcome the obstacle of pet pill giving while also strengthening the kinship between people and their pets. The company will be presenting each of its innovative products in the New Product Showcase at the 86th Annual Western Veterinary Conference, February 16th to 20th, 2014 at the Mandalay bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

With 110,000,000 U.S. cats and dogs requiring medication, and the majority of them struggling or refusing pills, Kinn, in close collaboration with veterinarians, developed a product line to help pet parents greatly increase the compliance of medication while at the same time, turning a typically unpleasant interaction into a positive one.

Dr. Tom Elston of T.H.E. Cat Hospital and Dr. Jeff Margolis of Olympiad Animal Hospital agree that the Kudose™ and Krocodile® have many advantages when it comes to pet pill giving. “One of the biggest challenges we have is getting medication into our patients. Cats are a challenge because they do not like people manipulating them so getting pills and medications into them can be quite difficult,” says Dr. Tom Elston, Past President of the American Association of Feline Practitioners. “This is a great method of delivering medication without a fight, providing a process that both the cats and the clients actually enjoy. I think it’s a great new product.”

Trying to force a pet to consume pills or hiding them in food typically does not result in a positive outcome for either the pet or their parent. The Kudose and Krocodile eliminate this stress and create an atmosphere where pets feel comfortable, if not happy, about taking their pills. Kinn products provide a healthy, easy-to-use alternative that ultimately create a strong kinship between pets and their pet parents.

Being in rescue, I find myself splitting a lot of pills. I have been through more plastic pill cutters than I care to think about, and all of them seemed to leave some sort of residue after the pill was cut, leaving me worried about if my pup was getting the full dose of the needed medication. Krocodile by Kinn managed to solve both these dilemmas at once. The Krocodile is a pill cutter made of stainless steel, designed to split or crush pills of just about every shape and size. We found it very easy to half just about every pill we tested, and even quartering pills was a breeze! When crushing pills, there are little baggies (Kroc Bellies) that are custom made for the cutter, ensuring that your pet received the complete dosage, allowing you to pour the complete does where it needs to go. With no residue left on the cutter, crusher! If solved several issues at once, and works in tandem with Kinn’s Kudose pill system, another innovative product, which is why we all agreed it earned the silver Medal!

New Ways To Pill Your Dogs

PetsWeekly.com — Click here to read full story

Recently, we had to take Brock in for an emergency. We weren’t sure what was happening at the time, but as it turns out, he had gotten a little “weed that shall not be named” (a foxtail) caught in his foot. The small foxtail embedded itself so completely, we didn’t know it was there. Brock’s foot became infected, which caused a fever, which spiked his heart-rate and it was a whole thing… Anyway – you can read more about it here if you’re interested. But, today we are talking about ways to medicate your pets.

Luckily for us, Brock is super easy to medicate. Actually, since we started feeding The Honest Kitchen, all of our dogs are very easy to medicate. They eat twice a day, so we just drop any medication in the food, stir, and everyone is totally happy to consume it.

But, there are a lot of dogs that are not easy to medicate and who are onto every trick in the book. Well, we’ve got some new tricks…

Kinn™ Launches New, Healthier Solutions for Giving Pills to Four-Legged Friends
Pet Pill Giving Made Easy – Innovative Products Easily Turn Pills into Customized, Nutritional Pet “Treats”

Aliso Viejo, CA – September 2013 – Kinn™ today announced the introduction of a new line of pet products that simplifies pet pill giving while strengthening the relationship between pets and their people. With 110,000,000 U.S. cats and dogs requiring medication, and the majority of them struggling or refusing pills, Kinn recognized the need for a new way to help pet parents maintain a strong and healthy bond with their pets, or their “Kinn.” These new introductions greatly increase the ingestion rate while turning a typically adversarial interaction into a positive one.

Used in combination with the Kroc Belly™ crushing pouches, pet parents can reduce the risk of cross-contamination between pill and pets while ensuring their pet gets the full intended dosage by not leaving residue in the crusher or on kitchen counters.

Pet parents can easily prepare a bottle full of treat mixture in just a few minutes which can last days, if not weeks, and can be easily and freshly served as individual “treats” in just seconds. MSRP $39.95

After mixing the customized treat mixture, it is then squeezed into the Pet Treat Kapsules™, in which the medicine has been placed. The Pet Treat Kapsule masks the smell of the medicine, but allows enough of the treat aroma through so the pet will smell his favorite recipe. After just a few “treats”, pets come to associate with the Pet Treat Kapsule as something they love to eat. Pet Treat Kapsules also make it hard for the pet to chew around the pill or spit it out which happens very often with other pill concealing techniques. For naturally finicky cats, the special formulation of the Pet Treat Kapsule is designed to soften when mixed with liquid. This allows the medication along with the “treat” mixture to be lapped up and ingested by the cat.

Used together or independently, the Krocodile and Kudose provide a pet parent with the flexibility to make customized pilling solutions in seconds. The pet parent can control the ingredients in the pill delivery for their pet, whether holistic, natural or low-calorie with guaranteed results that their cat or dog will love the taste.

The Kudose makes giving pets healthy, customized “treats” easy as 1-2-3. Just fill the Kudose bottle with a fresh, tasty recipe found in Kinn’s Quick ‘n Easy Recipes guide. Add a whole, split or crushed pill to the Pet Treat Kapsule and place it in the base, topping it off with the homemade treat mixture. Simply cap and serve the delicious treat to the pet to ensure their medication is not only gobbled or lapped up but, more importantly, enjoyed.

Kinn Introduces Stylish Solutions for Giving Pills to Pets and Making Homemade Cat and Dog Treats

Veterinarian tested and endorsed, Kinn’s line of premium pet care products takes the difficulty and danger out of giving medicine to pill-finicky pets

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Oct. 10, 2012 — Kinn Inc. today introduced its flagship line of premium pet care products that offer people the ability to personalize and customize how they care for their pets.

“We created Kinn to help people strengthen the relationship between pets and their families,” said Alex McKinnon, founder and chief executive officer, Kinn. “We do this by focusing on the health, wellness and happiness of dogs and cats. For our launch, we’ve tackled one of the most challenging aspects of caring for your pet — giving pills to dogs and cats — and created a safe way to split or crush pills then turn them into delicious homemade cat and dog treats.

Developed in collaboration with veterinarians, Kinn designs and markets easy-to-use products that re-invent how people nurture their companion animals.

“Other companies have tried to find a better way to pill a dog or cat, but most owners and their pets end up frustrated with the experience,” said Dr. Jeff Margolis, veterinarian and owner of Olympiad Animal Hospital in Mission Viejo, Calif. “Because Kinn has worked with veterinarians to create its products, they have gotten to the heart of this problem. Kinn understands what motivates pets and makes it easier to give medications while maintaining a strong bond with them”

Kinn’s introductory product line includes two flagship products, Kudose™ and Krocodile™, as well as associated accessories.

Create homemade cat or dog treats with Kudose

Kudose is a three-in-one pill concealer, treat maker and toppings dispenser — all designed as one easy-to-use system. With it, pet parents get the do-it-yourself convenience of making natural pet treats from foods they know their dog or cat like. On its website, Kinn features flavorful cat and dog treat recipes Kudose users can try for their pets.

“You even can hide medications or vitamins inside the Kudose-made treats so your pill-finicky pets won’t know they are swallowing medication,” McKinnon said. “Plus, Kudose stores and dispenses toppings. You can use it to add extra flavor or supplemental nutrition to any pet food. It’s a real benefit to pets with diminished appetites due to illness, age or boredom.”

Split or crush pet pills easily with Krocodile

Krocodile is a two-in-one pill splitter and crusher that easily and rapidly splits and crushes medicine and vitamins so pets can swallow them easily and safely. At the heart of the Krocodile is a stainless steel pill splitter designed to split thousands of pills reliably.

“When you need to crush pills for your pet, the Krocodile’s crushing system takes over,” McKinnon said. “The Krocodile is designed for most shapes and sizes of hard pills or vitamins.”

Both products are available exclusively at kinninc.com and carry a limited lifetime warranty. Kudose retails for $69.95, and Krocodile is $49.95. As a launch promotion, Kinn is offering free shipping on all orders totaling $25 or more. Plus, Kinn’s No-Hassle Return policy gives consumers peace of mind to enjoy their purchases in their homes for up to 90 days. If not 100 percent satisfied, Kinn will exchange the products or refund the merchandise price paid, plus any applicable sales tax.
