We all want our pets to have a healthy and glossy coat. They will feel great and we will be happy knowing that they are healthy. Because taking care of their fur and coat is not just about cleanliness, and good-looking, is about maintaining both your dog’s physical health as well as her appearance.

We have a few tips for maintaining and taking care of your pet’s fur.

1)      Rub-a-dub

Bathe your dog with a shampoo specifically made for dogs and made of natural ingredients. A natural bath is the best way to take care of your pet's skin and fur. Dog's coat and skin are sensible and chemicals and detergents will only make it worse. Use instead, natural cleansers and ingredients that will keep their skin healthy and their coats shiny. You may want to rub a dry leather chamois over your dog's coat to buff and polish it. 

2)      Brush away

Groom your pet regularly. You should brush your pet every few days, regardless of long or short hair. Long-haired dog breeds — such as Irish setters, border collies, shelties and Pomeranians — may need to be brushed twice a week. Cats also need brushing sessions. Aim for at least weekly brushing sessions. Take your time to untangle any knots and always brush with the lie of the fur to distribute the natural oils through the hair and use a comb to get rid of tangles. Make sure you find the right brush

3)      Healthy Eating

When deciding what to feed your pet, pay close attention to changes in the condition of the skin and coat. Many pets have food sensitivities, so it is important to keep trying to find out what works best for your unique animal.

4)      Do you need a conditioner?

Natural Conditioners can help with a dry coat and are often left in so the fur can absorb the nourishing ingredients. Conditioners or Grooming Creams can also be applied in between baths if your dog is getting a little smelly and you want to give them a quick refreshment. Stay away from Silicone-based ingredients can build up on the fur over time and cause fur to feel limp and rough. Silicone can also make their skin itchy and sensitive. 

5)      Lots of love

Always make the grooming time a positive experience. The best way to calm your pet’s fears is to train it from a very young age to be comfortable with the process.
