Tips For Easier Dog Bathing

(NewsUSA) – American households keep 78.4 million dogs according to a survey conducted by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association. And every one of those 78.4 million dogs, at some point…well…smells like a dog. “Washing your dog doesn’t have to be an unpleasant experience for you or your pet,” says Patty Mueller, pet care expert and founder of Rinse Ace brand pet products (www.rinseace.com). “Bathing your pet indoors is an easy, less-stressful alternative to a groomer -; or a backyard garden hose and bucket. All you need are a few inexpensive items and a little planning.” How frequently you bathe your dog depends on its lifestyle and breed. Bathing too often can irritate the skin. A good guideline is to wash your dog only when its coat gets dirty or begins smelling “doggy.” Here are some tips to make bath time easier and less stressful for pet and owner: - Gather your supplies without your pet present to reduce pre-bath anxiety. - P...

Explained: Dog Collar Gentle Leaders

A Gentle Leader is an item that fits in the leash, harness, and head collar categories. People sometimes use it as a training tool or a restraining device. How this collar works is it helps the owner to control their dog in a way that the dog will better understand. It goes around the neck and there is a loop for the muzzle of the dog as well. When slight pressure is applied to the loop, your dog will understand that you are the "leader of the pack" and not them. This all follows their natural patterns to communicate with other dogs, in order to distinguish their hierarchy. The main purpose for using a Gentle Leader is for walking your dog. They can be used to train puppies, or to correct behaviors such as pulling on the leash. It may not work one hundred percent of the time, but most people who use them with their dogs definitely notice an improvement. For those of you who may weighing your options when it comes to these devices, there are plenty of pros and cons. As far as pros go, one of the biggest i...


Keep Your Dog’s Teeth Healthy And Strong

Up until around ten years or so ago, you use to only be able to get your dog's teeth cleaned professionally, or with a dental care kit. These days, you have a huge number of items to choose from that all work differently to help keep their mouths clean and fresh. We will discuss some of the more popular ways to do this below. The old tried and true method is to use a doggie toothbrush and toothpaste from your home. The toothpaste is often flavored to their liking, and it is totally safe for them to use. While this is one of the best possible methods to choose from, it can be rather messy and difficult to do at times. Another tooth cleaning product for dogs is the increasingly popular finger brush. The advantage to using one of these little items is that you can personally get a deep clean in the mouth of any sized dog. The little knobs on the tip of the finger brush allow you to get the most stubborn things left behind off of their teeth, gums, and even tongue. The obvious disadvantage to this apparatus is ...
