Sweet Amber feeling great and ready for a snooze once she gets home.
There is nothing quite like a warm, massaging aromatherapy bath and pedicure!
Its getting chilly! Do you let your dog's hair grow long in the hope that the extra coverage will prevent him feeling the cold? It seems like logic, but in fact, with a longer coated fluffy-type breed of dog you could be making a mistake. Winter is the time that caring for your dog's hair becomes very hard work! I'm reminded of this; 'Shovelling the path while it's still snowing Is like cleaning the house while the kids are still growing' Caring for a dog with longer hair during the winter can feel a bit like that! Autumn leaves, dried and twisted into the chest hair, snappy little twigs caught up in the feet. Mud caked into dreadlocks after a brisk walk. And Snow! (your dog racing around, leg hair clattering with snowballs until they finally melt on the floor) You manage to get every last tangle brushed out...and it's time to go for a walk again. Long haired, bedraggled wet dogs don't dry naturally without mats appearing. We all know the dangers that face a matted dog, but in Winter? For a wet and matted dog trying to get warm and dry I can only imagine it must be like having to go to bed in a pair of wet jeans (never done it, but it can't be good!) If you are happy choosing a shorter, fluffier style to see your dog through the winter months, you and your pooch will feel the benefits. Easy to care for, warmer and so comfortable for the pup. Our poodle Reba always gets a shorter clip each year as the nights start to draw in.
