Love Your Pet Day: 4 Ways To Show Your Pet How Much You Love Them 

Dogs don’t need to be washed very often, as too much washing can be harmful to their skin and coat. However, every so often it’s good to bathe your dog to refresh their coat and remove any dirt. Especially if they are prone to getting muddy! Washing a dog at home can be simple if you have a good routine in place. Here’s what we recommend for a good bathing routine.

Be active with them

This could be going on their favourite walk or a good, long playtime with them. You could also do some training with them or teach them a new trick. It’s always good to ensure your pet is kept active and their minds engaged. 

Give them a special treat 

This could be a favourite treat from the local pet shop or you can try baking some homemade treats! This doesn’t need to be an edible treat, you could also buy or make them a new toy to play with. 



Enjoy some downtime

After you’ve spent some time being active with your pet, don’t forget to sit down for a cuddle or let them relax in their bed – after all they enjoy this as much as we do!   

  Try some pet pampering

This coat type requires   maintenance to avoid tangling and mats. Silky haired dogs can be either single coated or double coated depending on the breed. Double coats tend shed, so you might find that daily brushing is required to remove the excess hair. Everyday brushing can be done with a Nylon Slicker Brush or a brush with gentle pins like the Double Sided Sof Brush. If you experience a lot of matting, use a De-Matting Comb to gently tease the mats out.

To create the perfect pet pamper day we recommend:


-          Dirty Beastie Shampoo

-          Pet Cologne

-          Double Sided Soft Brush

-          Grooming Glove

-          Pet Nail Clippers
