Caring for a visually impaired or blind dog can be overwhelming at times, especially when concern for your pet's safety and happiness is always on your mind.
Luckily, there are certain products that can help your pet navigate his or her home, to reduce their anxiety and also put your mind more at ease. One such product comes in the form of small white circles that are used to mark objects, called Tracerz.
Tracerz are inconspicuous scent markers, that dog - as well as cat - owners can place strategically throughout their home in areas that the animal tends to bump into or where they get disoriented. Common places to stick a marker include corners, stairways, doors, and furniture.
Tracerz scent markers are designed using a blend of essential oils that are organic and natural, to ensure your pet's health is always top priority. Although humans can only smell the scent markers up close, dogs’ olfactory senses can pick up on the scent from much farther away. They then use these scents to build a "mental map" of their surroundings, making them feel safe and preventing injury.
Tracerz are easy to install and require no up keep. Scratching the marker activates the scent. Then, you just stick them on and the work is done! Each marker can last up to a year, reducing rework, while creating a safe and welcoming environment for your pet. There's no need to worry about removing the scent when your pet rubs against the marker or when cleaning - the scent won't wipe off. If the markers need a refresh, simply scratch to rejuvenate the scent.
Using Tracerz and other products designed to provide the best quality of life for special needs animals allows you to spend less time making sure items are out of your dog's way and more time having fun together.
