Dog Care Guide

Not all dogs are born aggressive. There are some dogs that are just so angel-like! Most often than not, they are the ones who are well taken care of. Probably because their owners pamper them with essential Dog Care Products!

They care for their dogs the same way they care for their family. It's almost amazing to see how dog lovers consider their dogs as one of their family. They pamper their dogs and in return, they get unconditional love, companionship and loyalty from them. It's a two-way street.

Show your dogs that you care by bringing them to their veterinarian and completing their vaccinations. In that way, you'll be sure that your dogs are completely healthy.

Responsible dog owners give their dogs a nutritionally balanced diet and that includes bottomless clean and fresh water. Don't forget to consult your vet, it's still best to get advice from the experts. Remember, it's your dog's health that we're talking about here. You wouldn't want to put your dog health at risk, would you?

Dogs need exercise to keep them fit, not exhausted! They get irritated when they're too tired... thus, the bad dog behavior! I suggest you take them for a walk and stop when they want to. Don't push them too hard. They get annoyed too, just like us, humans.

Give your dog proper shelter, a place where they can play and have fun. Most if not all small pets need and crave companionship and should spend most of their time inside with their family.

Your dogs also need basic grooming to keep them happy, healthy and beautiful. I'm sure you can handle the basic grooming procedures yourself. Don't forget to check their fur, skin, teeth, nails and ears on a regular basis. You can also ask help from professional groomers. Find the right groomer to provide quality grooming care for your dogs.

Just show your dogs that you care and they will show you that they were born to behave.

The Basic of Dog Grooming

My aunt who works in Australia once said that people in Balmain are amongst the most dog friendly people. That is why, dog grooming in Balmain are very popular in their community.

One of the basic dog health needs of your dog is proper grooming, and this is one of the major responsibilities of dog owner. For those dog lovers that are busy and can't spend a lot of time for their pet grooming, I recommend one of a low maintenance dog which is a pugalier; a cross-breed between Pug and Cavalier Kingz Charles Spaniel. My aunt has chosen to get a pugalier over other breed simply because it's adorable, child-friendly and is more suited in hotter countries such as Australia.

Before you go to a pet store that has a pugalier for sale sign, here are the things that you need to know to see to it that your pugaliers will grow healthy and happy dog.

BRUSH YOUR PUG'S HAIR. It is advised that you take time to brush the Pug's coat many times a week. Regularly brushing the pug's coat will control the hair shedding and will maintain a shiny look, healthy at that.

BRUSH YOUR PUGS TEETH. Dogs are prone to dental problems, it is but right to teeth at least twice a week. But remember, use toothpaste that has been formulated for dogs. Human toothpaste may harm them.

LET THEM TAKE A BATH. At least twice a month or every 2nd or 4th week of the month. Be sure that the shampoo you are going to use is formulated for dogs. Human shampoos may not be tender for them and may destroy their healthy hair and skin.

TRIM THEIR NAILS. Trimming their toenails is one good thing to do at least once a month. Use a sharp dog nail trimmer but just don't cut it too short. Just enough to be trimmed.

CHECK AND CLEAN THE EARS. Ear mites and dirts might cause damage to the pug's ear. It is but right to check it often for the pug to be always clean and away from harm. Dirts and ear mites might cause serious illness to your pugs.

CLEAN THEIR EYES BUT BE VERY CAREFUL. The eyes of a pug is so sensitive, thus it need extra handle in cleaning it. Using soft materials like soft tissues and others is advised in cleaning your pugs eyes.

Mind these tips and keep your pug well-groomed! It's easy and is very indispensable in keeping your buddy healthy!

Go for Natural Dog Shampoo

Itching is often associated with inflamed skin, and you may also see other signs such as reddened skin, excessive hair loss, weeping or flaking skin. The worst is, some dogs also have a terrible stinky smell.

Most of dog owners immediately resort to ointments, and allergy medications and other form or strong medicine. Not me. While I recognize the fact that bringing your dog to your vets is the best option, I also believe that aside from proper hygiene, there are other simpler approach to this kind of problem.

In my case, I tried switching my dog food to exclusively barf diet for a week along with vitamin supplement prescribed by my vet. I also found a very good dog shampoo alternative in K-9 Health Solutions while searching online for helpful information. I am particularly using Dogosuds, because just like Barf Diet, its all natural. Dogosuds is a breakthrough products of which is chemical free shampoo that contains 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils that have natural, healing properties.
