Due to the many allergies my little-adopted furry dog friends have, I do refrain from sending them to a groomer, and rather take care of their needs myself. Even if that means some extra work for all of us – and the occasional times when I end up more wet than the dogs taking the bath – I love pampering my pooches, while the cat watches on from the distance.
But before washing them with our favorite Burts Bee Hypoallergenic Shampoo (for Dogs), however, we had to try out our new Furbabies Retractable Dog Leash, and the dogs had a blast with that new item – more than I thought they would.
I have been staying away from retractable dog leashes, as I had a bad experience with them, having been cut after it wrapping itself around my leg. So I was pleasantly surprised when the Furbabies 15 ft retractable leash offered a flat, soft leash, that will prevent these accidents from happening. While it states, that it is for small dogs – and I originally accepted the offer only because I wanted to use it for a small toy chihuahua, which my friends call their own, it is better suited for my medium dogs of 30 pounds (Welsh Corgi/Beagle mix), and a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix (45 pounds).The handle of the dog leash alone would have been heavier than our little dog friend, so we are sticking with a generic, non-retractable leash for that cute sweetheart. But, for my two larger high energy dogs, this leash is now my favorite.
We then decided to add the finishing touches to their day by using our Safari dog nail clippers, my dogs are again presentable, even if they might not have enjoyed the last part as much as the did the new leash. I contemplated the use of doggie nail polish, but I am pretty sure, my husband would have thought I was completely crazy, so I led that one go.
After such adventure, we are usually all exhausted, as you can see by how one of my puppies passed out, watching us play Sorry!.
Question: What are your favorite ways to pamper your pets? Do you have a special groomer you take them to, or do you also DIY their beauty routine at home?
