The Grommet has evaluated over 60,000 products but has only launched 3% of those products because of the highest standards The Grommet was founded on. Now HandsOn Gloves is one of the 3% due the revolutionary design. HandsOn has changed the way we all will bathe, groom and de-shed our dogs, cats, horses, livestock and more.
Tai’s first film appearance was a minor role in The Jungle Book (1994), where she scares off some poachers. Tai followed this up playing the major role of Bo Tat in Operation Dumbo Drop in 1995. The American Humane Association rated the treatment of animals in the film as acceptable. The scene in which Tai is sedated she is actually just obeying her trainers instructions to lie down. The sounds of her snoring in the film is not actually coming from Tai, but was dubbed in during post-production. All scenes that show Tai in danger were carefully staged, and the boat in which she travels in the film was pre-tested to make sure it would support her 8,000 pound weight. To ensure she remained healthy, all of Tai’s food, drinking water, and even her bathing water, was shipped from the U.S. to Thailand, where filming was taking place.
Tai played the major role of Vera in the 1996 comedy Larger than Life alongside Bill Murray, and had a minor role in George of the Jungle in 1997, where she can be seen being ridden by Brendan Fraser and Leslie Mann, and again with Brendan Fraser in Tweety Bird’s jungle in Looney Tunes: Back in Action in 2002.
Tai’s performance in Water for Elephants in 2011 was praised. It was the second time Tai, Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson had all worked on the same film, as all three had been filmed in Vanity Fair in 2004, though Pattinson’s part was edited out of the final cut.
One of Tai’s paintings as well as an autographed poster for Water for Elephants was auctioned off on eBay to raise awareness of elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus. The money Tai raised from the auction was given to the International Elephant Foundation (IEF) which distributed it to the appropriate labs and research facilities actively working to find a cure for EEHV.
HandsOn Gloves are a revolutionary concept that reaches far beyond the traditional curry combs, mitts and scrubbers on the market today. Wet or dry, they won’t slip or fall off while providing you and your animals with a more thorough and enjoyable bathing and grooming experience. One glance and the value we built into our expertly designed gloves are immediately apparent.
The most highly anticipated and by far the best bathing AND grooming product to ever hit the market, HandsOn Gloves have arrived. With a glove on each hand, you reach beyond professional grooming excellence while naturally bonding with your animal. You will throw all of your old, antiquated tools away! The scrubbing nodules on the fingers and palms provide a deep thorough clean and are the best de-shedders on the market today. Another added benefit is your animals hair does not stick to the HandsOn Glove; just a simple flick of the wrist and the hair instantly releases so you can go right back to caring for your animal.
Once a year our dogs lose their minds and totally forget what a skunk is. We have tried every remedy known to man from the tomato juice baths to enzymatic cleaners (which didn’t work.)
Our vet finally gave us an old tried and true remedy that has worked every time for us, and has worked for everyone that we have given it to. (Consult with your veterinarian before using.)
Here is the Recipe:
1 quart 3 percent hydrogen peroxide
¼ cup baking soda
1 teaspoon liquid castile soap (available at health food stores)
½ teaspoon lemon juice
Mix ingredients in a medium to large size bucket, as it will fizz up. Soak the animal’s coat with the solution, being careful not to get it in their eyes, nose or mouth. These are all natural ingredients, but they have acidic properties and can cause irritation. Using HandsOn Gloves helps keep your hands from coming in direct contact with this acidic solution. The gloves are beneficial, as you have to knead the solution into the fur all the way to the skin. It is important to knead and soak thoroughly, especially for long haired dogs.
Rinse completely and dry your dog. No more skunk smell. This solution changes the chemical properties of the skunk spray to break it down, so the odor is eliminated; not masked.
If any solution is left over, discard it immediately. The chemical reaction from being closed up could cause a fire or explosion. And again, please consult your veterinarian before trying this remedy on your pet.
Rolling in dog, cat, cow, horse, coyote, and other animal feces is very common for dogs. There are several theories on this, and here is the one that seems most plausible. The primal, ancient instinct of dogs is to mask their scent for hunting. This would enable the dog to sneak up on his prey without detection. Even if your dogs don’t hunt, that instinct is in them.
Whatever the actual reason for dogs to roll in feces, it happens. And when it does, no one enjoys cleaning up these mess. Keep the filth off your hands with HandsOn Gloves. Having your gloves on while cleaning up these fun times is more bearable for the human, and leaves you and your animals much cleaner.
