Caring for your pooch in three simple steps

How to care for your pooch

The famous saying goes: "Dog is man's best friend."

It's a common phrase used to describe domestic dogs, referring to their millennia-long history of close relations, loyalty, friendship, and companionship with humans. While they give us so much, it's supaw important that we give back. 

In this blog, we'll give you some tips and tricks on how you can care for your pooches in a way that will make them happy and cared for, and the top way you can do that is with dog grooming and bathing caretips. 

How many times a week (or month?) do you bathe your dogs? How about grooming? Do you clip their nails, check their teeth, eyes, and ears? I know ... it's a lot, but they'll appreciate it!

(1) Coat Care

If your pooch has a short coat, daily brushing isn't required. However, if your dog has a thick, shaggy, or long coat, daily brushing IS required. Otherwise, your dog's hair could mat. 

... and there's no better time to brush your dog's hair than when he/she has just got out from a fresh bath! 

According to Hill's Pet, a dog with a healthy short, smooth coat, and no obvious skin problems doesn't need to be bathed daily. Bathing your beloved pooch at least once every 2-3 months is plenty. 

However, bathing your dog gives you a chance to check them for skin problems or lumps. PLUS always remember those daily tick checks. 

Have you tried our all-natural pet care soap or dog shampoo? They're great for keeping your dogs clean and fresh. Our Natural Lemon Myrtle Dog Shampoo in 500 ml has 100% natural Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil from its native home on the East coast of Australia. This dog shampoo will leave your dog's coat and skin clean, smelling fresh and feeling silky soft after each bath. PLUS ... it's antibacterial and antifungal and with the additional benefits of an organic aloe vera base and herbal extracts. You can learn more about that here!

Here's another amazing product for dogs ~ The SoapMan Soap - Natural Pet Soap. This is naturally cleansing and deodorising, which also assists in managing insect bites, reducing chronic itching and removes dirt without harsh drying chemicals. Give your dogs a treat - click here!

(2) Pedicure Care

Check your dog's feet regularly for cuts, and especially between the pads for ticks. Keep in mind that they're more prone to punctures and wounds from sharp objects that they could step on every day. If you're unsure as to how to treat wounds, seek veterinary help immediately. 

(3) Dental Care

Did you know, dogs don't usually get teeth cavities? However, they're prone to tartar buildup. 

According to howstuffworks, "Gum disease is one of the most common problems veterinarians see in dogs. Besides causing bad breath, if periodontal disease gets bad enough, it can interfere with a dog's ability to chew and even effect internal organs, causing bacterial infections in the kidneys and heart."

Use a small, soft toothbrush or use your fingers to brush your dog's teeth. Brush your dog's teeth every day or even weekly is fine.
