Sergeant's Pet Care Products and Celebrity Dog Trainer Tamar Geller Team Up for Sergeant's "Bad Dog" Video Contest

Enter Video of Your "Bad Dog" and Win Prizes to Help Calm Your Pooch

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwire - February 17, 2009) - Does your dog tear up your couch, destroy your shoes or chew just about anything else in its path? If so, Sergeant's Pet Care Products wants to see your dog in action for the Sergeant's "Bad Dog" video contest.

All you need to do is catch your dog misbehaving, capture it on video and upload it to YouTube to take advantage of the one time your dog's destructive behavior could be rewarded.

You see, your dog may not be a "bad" dog at all. It may actually be suffering from a chronic behavioral issue. In fact, an estimated 10 million dogs in the United States suffer from separation anxiety, the leading cause of behavioral problems.

Tamar Geller, celebrity life coach for dogs and author of the best seller, "The Loved Dog: The Playful Non-Aggressive Way to Teach Your Dog Good Behavior," will judge contest entries and determine which three dogs are the most "behaviorally challenged" of them all.

"Millions of dogs and cats go to animal shelters each year, many just waiting to be euthanized," says Geller. "Many pet owners don't realize that most behavioral issues can be successfully addressed."

Geller's celebrity clients include Oprah Winfrey, Ben Affleck, Hillary Swank, Natalie Portman, Courtney Cox-Arquette, Owen Wilson, Nicollette Sheridan, Brad Paisley and Larry King. She is a dog expert for "The Today Show" and was featured on "20/20," "Larry King Live," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "Live with Regis and Kelly" and more.

Sergeant's recently launched the Sentry HC® Good Behavior™ Pheromone Collar for Dogs, a convenient, inexpensive and effective way to calm dogs who have behavior problems caused by stressful situations.

"The Sentry HC Good Behavior Pheromone Collar mimics the pheromone that a mother dog naturally produces to calm and reassure her puppies," says Bob Sharf, Sergeant's president and CEO. "Dogs recognize these pheromones throughout life, so no matter what the dogs' age, the collar is effective. This natural approach is a good alternative to the powerful prescription medicines typically used to control anxious behavior."

Scharf says, unlike pheromone diffusers that work in a confined area, the Sentry HC Good Behavior Pheromone Collar for Dogs can be used at home or on the go and pet owners can buy it without a trip to the veterinarian at a fraction of the cost.

The grand prize winner will receive a $500 prize, including dog behavior training and oodles of pet care products. Second and third runners up win prizes valued at $250 and $100, respectively.

In addition, the first 100 people to submit a contest video will receive a free SentryHC® Good Behavior™ Pheromone Collar.

To enter the contest, go to http://www.youtube.com/group/baddogcontest and click on the "Join this Group" link. Once you are a member, click on the "Add Videos" link and upload your video.

The contest runs February 17 through March 17.
