Best Grooming Products for Dogs
It’s time to step up your grooming game, just in time for the Westminster Dog Show! If you want your pooch to be the next Best in Show, use these 5 essential tools to make sure your dog is up to champion standards.
Making a habit of brushing your dog’s coat can be beneficial for the both of you. Brushing helps release natural oils which bring out that “Best in Show Shine” while also making your dog feel appreciated. Plus, regular brushing habits are a great way for the two of you to bond! We recommend the JW Pet Double Sided Brush for its ability to tackle almost every type of dog-hair.
Part of keeping your dog in tip-top shape (and making sure Fido doesn't get too stinky) means routine baths. It's recommended that a dog should bathe once every 3 months to help keep skin and fur healthy. Depending on your dog’s skin, there are different shampoo options depending on their needs. Check out Pet Head Dirty Talk Deodorizing Shampoo for its odor-neutralizing capability.
This often overlooked area nees a bit of love too. Want your dog to stay healthy and alert? Keep up with routine ear cleaning. The amount of cleaning your dog will need is a case by case recommendation, but some breeds with big/floppy ears usually require more maintenance. If you’re committed to keeping your pet happy and healthy check out Petkin Bamboo Eco Earwipes (they’re organic!)
Not all dogs require haircuts. Dogs with short hair (Boston Terriers, for example) usually don’t need to be shaved or clipped but medium to long haired dogs (like Golden Retrievers) will require a cut every now and then. You may want to leave the serious haircuts to the professionals, but The Wahl Pet Clipper Kit can help with those touchups between appointments. This tool also comes in handy for maintaining breed-specific hairstyles (like Poodles).
Cutting your dog's nails can be a nerve-racking experience for both you and your dog, especially when it’s been a problem in the past. But there’s nothing worse than getting stepped on by a dog with unkempt nails. We recommend Four Paws Super Nail Clipper to help you and your pet get through clipping efficiently. These have a great nail guard feature so you don’t go too far and cause any pain for your pooch.
