A good way to treat you pet dog or cat is to pamper them once in a while. Giving them care and pampering is indeed a way of reciprocating the joy and companionship they have given you all the time. Here are some pet care tips and some pampering you can give to your pets.
1. Get your pet a toy.
A frisbee would be greatly delightful for your pet dog. Choose a frisbee that is lightweight and but something that can’t be easily chewed apart. You can also give your pet rubber balls to play with. Some important pet care tips – be sure that you choose a toy that does not have some parts that can be easily swallowed and don’t leave them playing with something that they can tear into pieces and swallow.
2. Style and shoot.
Give your pets the celebrity pet look and have a photo session for them. You can get good pet dresses for your dog or cat or you can also get themed dresses to make the photo shoot more exciting. This may be a challenging task but it could be a fun activity to spend time with your pets.
3. Get a treadmill for your pet.
A pet treadmill is an amazing way to exercise your dog indoors. It can be convenient if you do not have the luxury of time to go outdoors and give them a good walk. Although a walk in the park can also give them a breath of fresh air, your dog treadmill can be helpful if you want to stay indoors. You can also choose a manual treadmill so they can have control over it, and never leave your pet on their own when exercising. One of the important pet care tips to keep in mind is to be responsible for the safety of your pets in whatever gadgets you are putting them in.
4. Schedule a pet spa.
If you like going to the spa to pamper yourself, you can also book a great spa for your pet dog or cat. Bring them to pet day spa where they can be treated like a royalty! – just exactly what you want them to feel. A good massage, a great nail clipping and teeth and ear cleaning… it can be a great experience for your pets. You can even apply for programs on teaching your pets to do some tricks. This experience will definitely be great for your pet and for you as well. Having a clean, sweet-smelling pet at the end of the day is indeed something that you would want to cuddle and play with.
5. Give them a good bath.
Of course, the easiest and most common thing you can do for your pet is a good bath. Give your dog a good bath but do not also give them frequent baths as this can also make their skin dry and susceptible to skin infections. You can however clean them by rubbing their body with a damp towel and cleaning their paws. Cats on the other hand can manage to clean themselves but you can also give them a good bath. You can use lukewarm water and pour, not spray, on them. If you can’t get your cat to take a bath especially the older ones, you can also rub them with damp towels. Also comb their hair before bathing to get rid of loose hair and make your shampoo more effective.
