With many groomers temporarily closed, it is important to maintain grooming of your dog at home, with semi-regular washes, frequent brushing and of course lots of love and cuddles.
Grooming is a great way to bond with your dog, and with many dogs hyper aware of our emotions they may be conscious of heightened stress levels at this time. Spending time bonding with your furry bestie will both put them at ease, and provide much needed comfort to you.
How regularly you need to wash your dog will depend on the breed and individual needs of your dog based on lifestyle. Generally a wash is only required every 4-6 weeks which allows their natural oils to do their thing, without drying out their skin.
Dog's skin can be sensitive and has a different pH level to that of human skin, meaning only shampoo that has been formulated for dogs should be used. Harlow Harry conditioning pet shampoo is developed for dogs and is paraben free, sulphate free, SLS free, vegan, pH balanced for dogs and free of toxins and harmful ingredients.
The 2-in-1 conditioning formulation will leave your dogs coat feeling soft with a healthy gloss. It gently cleans, protects and revitalises fur, helping to improve overall condition for ease of combing.
Keep them clean between washes with regular brushing to remove debris that becomes trapped in fur, tangles, and matting. Keep them smelling bougie between washes with a spritz of Harlow Harry pet parfum. Our parfum can be sprayed into your hands and rubbed onto your dog's hair, applied directly to their fur, or even sprayed on their bed if needed for a little freshen up.
Our pet parfum was developed with sensitive souls in mind, and is water based and free from alcohol and harmful ingredients. Our sophisticated, unisex scents are inspired by human fragrance and will linger on your dog keeping them smelling chic between washes and ensuring quality cuddles on the couch every day and in the bed every night.
If you're going to be in isolation with your family, you don't want them to be smelly, and that most certainly applies the furrier family members too.
Some other at home activities that we have have calling on to keep ourselves busy and the pooches active are:
- Tug of war with a rope
- Filling the kong with delicious treats (hours of entertainment and also a perfect post bath reward)
- Playing fetch down the hallway
Attempting to teach new tricks (playing dead and rolling over might just required a full year in isolation to master)
- Lastly, and quite possibly our favourite, a Netflix binge on the couch complete with tummy rubs
Stay indoors, stay safe and don't forget our Harlow Harry mantra. Step 1... gentle cleanse, healthy gloss, leaves them nice and soft. Step 2... keeps them smelling bougie between baths and extends their wash.HH xx
