According to the RSPCA, over 44% of UK households have pets which equates to approximately 51 million pets owned. Our four-legged friends have never been more important to us after a year of almost constant lockdown. We are by nature a nation of dog lovers in the UK and we can spend over £250 per month on their food, treats, professional grooming, pet insurance and vets’ fees. There are many different aspects to caring for our dogs including nutrition, grooming, hygiene, exercise, training, physical and emotional health.
We’ll look at these categories and suggest some good ideas and products that can help you keep your canine friend in the best of health.
Apart from healthy, nutritious food, we like to reward our dogs for good behaviour whether it’s for training purposes or just to show how much we love them! Try Mutts and Hounds Natural Dog Treats containing all-natural ingredients with none of the nasties like added salts, sugars or dyes. The treats come in a wide range of varieties which you can choose according to your dog’s needs eg; salmon for Omega 3 fatty acids which softens and shines the coat as well as support a healthy immune system. With six varieties to choose from, there is bound to be something they’ll love.
HYGIENE AND GROOMING
Keeping your dog warm and dry after a wet walk is good for them and if you drive to your walking destination, good for your car too! Ruff and Tumble are the market leader in dog drying coats, with their super absorbent, double thickness soft cotton towelling that wicks away water from your dog’s coat and keeps them comfortable and dry; the ultimate solution for managing damp or wet dogs. In a variety of colours and styles your dog can look as good as they feel.
EXERCISE AND TRAINING
Apart from just looking good, a properly fitting collar and strong lead appropriate to the size of your dog is essential. You won’t have to worry about your large dog pulling too hard on its leash and breaking the handle or latch. Mutts and Hounds have a wide selection of matching collars and leads from tiny to large, with matching genuine Italian leather poo bag dispensers to collect whatever your dog leaves behind!
After a long day living their best life, your dog needs somewhere cosy to rest. Practicality scores highly on the list of plus points you need to consider when buying your best friend a bed but wouldn’t it be great if you could get one which reflects their personality? Take a look at Artworld Dog Bed Cushions made from wipe clean, water resistant fabric and backed with super strong sail cloth making it hardwearing and durable. The cover prints are digital mock-ups of real dogs in some of our favourite characters recalling iconic movies and music creators; you can also purchase similar screen-printed versions for cushions for humans too!
We know that keeping your dog happy and healthy is a huge responsibility and you owe it to your pet to give them the very best.
