A stinky dog doesn’t automatically have to mean a trip to the groomers. Plenty of doggie day spa practices can be completed right at home, and Amazon’s got just the stuff to get the job done right.
If the name of this shampoo sounds familiar, it might be because you’ve heard of John Paul before—he’s the co-founder of Paul Mitchell. His companies are big on making animals happy, though giving them a bath is sort of a roundabout way of achieving that. Nonetheless, this luxe shampoo gives a thorough clean and rinses easily for a scrub-down well done.
Your dog doesn’t need to race the Iditarod to reap the benefits of this paw balm. Just rub it into their paw pads before any outdoor activities to shield them from hazardous surfaces. Burning pavement, hot sand, and ice or rock salt in winter can wreak havoc on unprotected paws, but a healthy dose of Vitamin E has come to the rescue.
We’re looking at you pugs, bulldogs, and other flat-faced breeds. All dogs are susceptible to dry noses, but we know a crusty schnoz when we see one. This all-natural balm rubs right in with no harsh fragrances to moisturize, heal, and leave pups’ noses smooth and totally boop-able.
Face it, dogs sometimes smell like, well, dogs. It’s part of their irresistible charm. Just spray this miracle concoction all over their coat, brush it out, and spritz a few times again for the deliciously-scented cherry on top of your pooch, and you’ll have a whole new pup—bath not necessary.
The name of this product already has me hooked, but its effectiveness is enough to seal the deal. Wrinkly-dog parents know the struggle of keeping those endearing folds clean, but moisture that gets trapped in between often promotes the growth of bacteria and fungus. Just massage in a little of this paste, and that yuckiness won’t stick around for long.
We all know the raw fear that comes with clipping our dogs’ nails; the possibility of accidentally clipping too close to the quick (where you’ll find the nail’s blood supply) is painful for both parties. The guard on these clippers eliminates that chance and makes routine nail trims a breeze. The included nail file will also smooth any jagged or uneven edges, so say goodbye to excited leg scratches, too.
Baths are a hassle at the best of times, but a “mini bath” with these fragrance-free wipes is great if you’re short on time. They’re 100% free of harsh chemicals, yet great at removing dirt and doggie odors. They’re no wimpy wipes, either; the thick, quilted material measuring 8×9 inches apiece makes them perfect for dirty dogs of any size.
My dog absolutely ADORES being groomed with this clever tool, though he won’t tolerate any other brush. The FURminator aims to significantly reduce shedding by gently combing through the undercoat to remove dead or loose hairs. When used regularly, you might just find you don’t have to vacuum as much. Win-win.
