This is the number one reason people take their pup to a “spa.” Having a clean dog is much better than having a stinky one, not to mention a lot of dogs hate being bathed at home. At a pet spa, your dog can have special services with their bath, like a blow-dry or even a doggy facial.
Keeping your dog’s nails in good condition means preventing them from getting too long. Long nails can lead to scratches on skin and floors, loud walking, and a pup pedicure will also trim overgrown hair on the dog’s paws. Treat your dog to a pawdicure to combat their discomfort and yours.
A conditioning treatment on your dog’s coat can be beneficial for several reasons. A hypoallergenic conditioner helps maintain the natural oil’s in your dog’s coat and can lessen shedding. Conditioning treatments will also help with your dog’s odor and coat texture, especially in dogs with long hair.
Having your dog massaged has tons of benefits including stress and anxiety relief, and promotes overall wellbeing. Additionally, a massage can decrease blood pressure, improve lymphatic fluid movement, boost his immune system, and aid in digestion. Dog massage has also been used as a healing aid if a dog has been injured. Consult your veterinarian before taking your dog for a massage at a spa or giving him one yourself, which is a great way to strengthen your bond!
