January is officially Walk Your Dog Month! We know that you’re walking every month of the year with your dog, but this is a great opportunity to beat the January blues with some dog walking motivation!
The winter weather isn’t going anywhere soon, so it’s important to be prepared for it on your walks! Muddy walks with can be fun, but the mess that follows – not so much!
Here’s a few essentials to have on hand before and after you walk to take care of your dog during Walk Your Dog Month.
CLEANING A MUDDY DOG
Pet Wipes are ideal for keeping in the car for a quick clean-up after your walk. You can use the wipes on any area of the coat to get rid of muddy spots. There’s no need to rinse afterwards so you can put your dog straight in the car – no more muddy seats!
WET DOG SMELL
Walking in the rain can mean your pooch comes back smelling of wet dog. You don’t always want to bathe them to remove this smell as it’s not good for their coats to be washed too often. To give your dog a fresh smell you can use a Pet Cologne. Our range of fresh and fruity scents will leave their coat smelling beautiful without the need for a bath.
Running through muddy puddles and leaves can leave a lot of debris and dirt trapped in your dog’s coat. To avoid matts building up in the fur, regular brushing is recommended. For removing those tricky tangles, use a Dematting Comb with contoured stainless-steel teeth to gently comb them out.
The Pet Sheddy Brush can be used on either wet or dry coats so that you can softly remove dirt even while shampooing. You can also use this brush to remove pet hair from clothes and textiles.
With these dog walking essentials, you’ll be ready no matter what the weather brings!
