Why SCOE 10X Works

To fully understand why SCOE 10X works so well to eliminate malodor, it is beneficial to have some understanding of the science of odor.  The following few paragraphs give an abreviated scientific look at what malodor is and how SCOE 10X combats and eliminates it.

There are THREE DISTINCT ODOR COMPONENTS that make up biological odor:Odor Component One: A biological excretion or decomposition; such as urine, feces, vomit, sweat, skunk spray, meat, fish, cigarette smoke, etc. Odor Component Two: Odor producing bacteria; feeding on the biological excretion, produce lots and lots of odor molecules. Odor Component Three: Odor molecules; what your nose actually identifies as odor, are produced by odor causing bacteria feeding on biological excretion.  

All three odor components must be eliminated by an odor elimination product to permanently eliminate a biological odor.  If these three components are not eliminated, the odor will remain or naturally return.

How SCOE 10X Works

SCOE 10X is unlike and very different from all the other so-called odor eliminators.  SCOE 10X is a beneficial probiotic odor eliminator. What this means is, SCOE 10X, using probiotics, simultaneously preforms the three necessary odor eliminating functions to ensure permanent elimination of all the components of biological odor:Odor Component One: Biological excretion; SCOE 10X digests, or in other words, attacks, destroys and eliminates the biological excretion. Odor Component Two: Odor producing bacteriadue to SCOE 10X eliminating the biological excretion, the natural result is the odor causing bacteria, now with-out food, starve to death. Consequently, no more odor molecules are produced.Odor Component Three: Odor molecules; Using advanced odor elimination technology, SCOE 10X immediately captures and destroys all odor molecules that are present.Simply put, SCOE 10X eliminates the bacterial food source (the odor causing bacteria die) and destroys the odor molecules (the odor is eliminated), thereby permanently eliminating the biological odor.How many so called "odor elimination" products have you already tried where the odor returns? Here's malodor reality: If the odor eliminator product doesn't eliminate all three odor components or doesn't come in direct contact with the biological excretion, the malodor will naturally return.

About The Algonquin Cat:

For many years the history of The Algonquin Cat was believed to have its origins in the 1930’s, when a stray cat came wandering into the hotel for food and water.  After the hotel acquired an out-of-print book written by the hotel’s first general manager, Frank Case, a chapter was discovered about a cat named Billy. Based on the timeline of the book, the hotel is now proud to say the lineage of The Algonquin Cat dates back to the early 1920's. Two days after Billy passed, a stray cat wandered into the hotel and The Algonquin welcomed Rusty. The famous classical actor, John Barrymore, was a resident at the time in the early 1930's and Rusty was renamed Hamlet in his honor. Hamlet is said to have been Barrymore's greatest stage role. The hotel has had a total of 11 cats, including Billy. The lineage includes seven Hamlets and three Matildas. Each cat that has reigned at The Algonquin has been a rescue. In 1980, author Hilary Knight immortalized The Algonquin Cat with his cartoons for a children’s book on which he collaborated with Val Schaffer. The current Matilda began her residence in December 2010.Today, Matilda is looked after by the hotel’s Chief Cat Officer, Alice De Almeida. The hotel’s executive chef cooks her special meals on holidays. She receives fan mail and gifts constantly, from around the world, including Japan, Australia and Russia. Matilda can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. She can also be reached via e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Yvonne Kal creator of Come Clean, pop culture soaps, will join Jon and Talkin' Pets at 630 PM EST on 6/27/15 to discuss and give away her pet soap line

I created Come Clean because of my love for beauty products was conflicting with my journey towards wellness. Was it possible to have something beautiful, effective and free of harsh chemicals? Yes! Check out “Come Clean” – pop culture soap, a beauty essential with attitude. These whimsical bath soaps pay homage to the most important pillars in pop culture today – New York, fashion, pets, music and media. Through research and experimentation, I have formulated a moisturizing glycerin bar that is safe for both humans and dogs. Come Clean Soap is safe to use as a hand or body soap for people and also a 'shampoo' bar for pets. 

The ingredients are all made in the USA. 

My Inspiration: 

I love my dog and like all dog owners, there is always a product you wish existed.  Being the owner of a short hair white dog for the past 9 years has taught me a lot! White dogs, like all other dogs, get dirty and require baths. If your dog is lucky enough to share your car, sofa, bed and home – my very special All Natural Dirty Dog Shampoo Bar will change your life! It is created with drops of 100% pure essential oils to naturally repel fleas and ticks, provide relaxing aromatherapy, blended with human grade moisturizing gentle glycerin soap – hand poured with love.  

Bath time should be fun, stress free and quick. A 10-15 minute bonding spa session is what every dog deserves. The first experience I can remember about picking a puppy and making him 'mine' was the very first bath. 

Wash your dog regularly with this soap to keep their coat clean and skin healthy and dandruff free. The coconut oil helps decrease seasonal shedding as well.

Keep away from eyes.

Some of the soaps feature the American Pit Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, American Bull Dog, English Bull Dog, Doberman, Rottweiler, Pug, Chihuahua, Mix Breeds and more!  – these are the most common abandoned and rescued dogs in shelters across United States and Canada who bring immeasurable love to their new families.

Adopt a dog and save a life (and don't forget to wash him/her) <3 ! 

xoxo Yvonne & my dog Jacob

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Brilliant(!) New Book on Puppy Socialization Written by Caryl Wolff  
The buzzword today in dog training is Puppy Socialization – acquainting puppies to the “real world” before they are 16 weeks old through positive associations.  Puppy owners have previously been told to wait until puppy shots were completed before taking them outside – which is equivalent to keeping a child housebound until he is 12 years old!  Veterinary behaviorists now emphasize that the more positive exposure a puppy has before vaccines are completed, the more balanced and behaviorally fit the puppy will ultimately be as an adult dog – that first 16 weeks is critical.
With contributions from top dog experts, this book is endorsed by trainers, owners, and veterinarians, this book gives tips to breeders, owners, and rescue groups on how to socialize puppies safely and effectively.
“Puppy Socialization – An Insider’s Guide to Dog Behavioral Fitness”
 Dispels many untruths and myths about socialization  Bases its recommendations on scientific evidence  Offers hundreds of tips and suggestions for breeders, owners/guardians, rescue groups, and trainers on how to properly socialize puppies
“I wrote this book,” says Wolff, “so more dogs will be behaviorally fit and have good doggie manners as adults so that fewer dogs will be relinquished to shelters for behavior issues, many of which would never even appear if they had been properly socialized as puppies.”
About the Author 
Author and dog trainer/behavior consultant Caryl Wolff is the first dog trainer to be certified by five dog trainer organizations.  She has written seven books about dog training and behavior.  She lives in Los Angeles with her two adopted dogs and a 42-year-old blue-and-gold macaw, which she has had since he was a fledgling – she confirms that he is her longest relationship….

New campaign and online video encourage the public to support stronger federal animal fighting sentencing guidelines

To view the ASPCA’s video, please visit: [http://www.aspca.org/GetTough]

NEW YORK— Following today’s commendable decision by the U.S. Sentencing Commission (USSC) to consider revising the federal sentencing guidelines for animal fighting, the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is launching a campaign -- including a compelling new video -- urging the public to actively support stronger sentencing guidelines.

The current sentencing guidelines do not reflect the maximum penalty allowed under federal law, which can discourage federal prosecutors from pursuing animal fighting charges that may only yield a sentence as paltry as six months in jail.

“The current guidelines for dog fighting are woefully inadequate, and don’t come close to matching the heightened seriousness with which Congress, law enforcement, and the public view this barbaric activity,” said Matt Bershadker, ASPCA President & CEO. “By proposing to amend the animal fighting guidelines, the U.S. Sentencing Commission moves us one step closer to giving judges the tools they need to punish these criminals more appropriately, as well as to deter potential criminals.”

In 2008, Congress acknowledged the depravity of dog fighting by increasing the maximum penalty for participating in animal fighting from 3 to 5 years. They again strengthened animal fighting statutes a few years later when they made attending an animal fight a federal offense and added additional penalties for bringing a child. However, federal sentencing guidelines have not been updated to include these increased penalties, creating a discrepancy between what is allowed under federal law and what is expressed in sentencing guidelines. As a result, convicted dog fighters are receiving unacceptably weak sentences.

To help raise awareness about the need for stronger sentences, the ASPCA has released a video as part of their #GetTough campaign to crack down on animal fighting. Featuring interviews with the public, the video reveals the surprise and disappointment of average Americans once they become aware of the terrible disparity between horrific animal crimes and their inadequate penalties.

“This video clearly illustrates the strong public sentiment that dog fighting is a vicious blood sport that should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Nancy Perry, senior vice president of ASPCA Government Relations. “Congress already spoke up on behalf of animals when they strengthened the federal laws on animal fighting, and we hope the U.S. Sentencing Commission will follow their lead.”

Dog fighting is a felony in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Although illegal everywhere in the U.S., dog fighting still occurs in every part of the country and in every type of community.  For more information on the ASPCA’s #GetTough campaign and their work to end dog fighting, please visit http://www.aspca.org/GetTough.
