Problem Solvers Review & Giveaway **Closed**

I was so excited to be contacted by Problem Solvers to do a review of any of their products and I decided to do something for Charlie (my Yorkie) this time! He sees the boxes come in and he always runs up and sniffs thinking he might be getting a new toy only to find out it is something for Mommy or Daddy or both. So, you would think he would be grateful I got something he would like? Crap, no! Charlie loves to ride in the car but for the last 3 weeks we have noticed for some bizarre reason he is nervous as all get out about riding now!

He used to run and jump into the car and his old seat we had for him but now he resists us when we say we are going for a ride. Very strange! Anybody have any ideas? As far as we know, nothing weird has happened, no accidents, no bad trips, just out of the blue he does not want to ride. And no, it is not the new car seat, called Pet Console Lookout, from Problem Solvers. He started this a few days before we even got the new seat so he was doing this with his old one also.

As you can see, he put his baby bear in there to protect it, but that was about all I could get him to do! Now, here is the secret, he used his old car seat/bed as his "protect" place for all his favorite toys, so I know it is not the car seat that is making him nervous about riding. I am wondering if he is nervous about the car moving now. I know some dogs get car sick, which he hasn't yet, but maybe the motion is unsettling to him for some reason? If it does not clear up soon, I will ask his Vet if he knows what the deal might be. I just did not want to hold up the review/giveaway while we waited to figure out what has Charlie spooked about riding all of a sudden.

Again, let me stipulate that it is not the car seat, Charlie was acting strange before we got the seat. And if he was afraid of it, he would not have put baby bear in there. I can tell you that the car seat was well made, sturdy and it is designed to fit on top of your console! That is the main reason I wanted it because that is where Charlie usually sits when he rides with us.

Here are some of the details:

*Patented Design
*Available in quilted nylon with simulated lamb's wool interior
*Removable cover is machine washable and dryable
*Firm yet comfortable foam form
*Comes with safety strap for securing animal
*Safely secures to seat base and console lid
*Available in either Black or Khaki
*Size: Large: 8" x 12"x 18"-up to 12 lbs.

As you can see, he is not afraid of the car seat or he would not be anywhere around it! Okay, let me tell you about Problem Solvers. This is a website that helps you with the little things that you might need help with like Pet Solutions, which is where I picked out the Lookout Car Seat. There are lots of other areas that Problem Solvers can help you with everyday problems such as Organization (laundry rooms, closets, storage, garden, kitchen & bath, etc.), Personal Care, Health Solutions, Garden Gadgets, Kitchen Gadgets, etc. Gosh, there is alot of products on Problem Solvers for just about anything!

They even have an Outlet section where products have been marked down for sales. I found some neat Nesting Baskets that I could put books or magazines in near our recliners or in the bedroom for quick reading without having to go into the office. Under the Tools & Gadgets section I found Emergency Fire Starting Kits, Solar Powered Flashlights, American Red Cross Weather Radio, etc. Are you getting the drift of what Problem Solvers is all about now? They help you basically solve whatever your particular problem happens to be! Oh, and I found this one quite by accident! I did not know that they had a Holiday Essentials section so if you need some products like their Tree Stand to help make your holidays better, go check it out!

Oh, and guess what? They are having a giveaway once a month they give $100 GC to use in their shop online! I registered and you should, too. Heck, who can't use $100 worth of a product that might make your life a little easier? I honestly could use more than one item on Problem Solvers. I saw plenty that could make my life alot easier and safer.

If you are a new Bill Me Later customer you can get $20 off of $100 when you go shopping right now. Darn, I am already a customer so I can't take advantage of that offer.
