If your dog's hair is looking a little more drab than usual, there are a variety of ways in which you can improve its appearance!
The old adage "beauty is skin deep" is about more than just appreciating someone for who they are. What you eat is more than calories, and how you eat reflects on the outside. This is true for a wide range of animals, from birds and reptiles to complex mammals such as your canine companion.
Whether you're feeding your dog low-quality commercial food or you haven't properly balanced his homemade diet, nutritional inadequacies invariably manifest themselves externally just as they do internally.
Your dog requires a complex balance of foods, and the source of his dietary fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, is one of the most important aspects of a healthy coat.
A diet low in fat and a lack in other essential nutrients can lead to more than just deficiency in lustre so it's important you research your options carefully when choosing a diet for your dog.
Bathing is an essential part of everyday hygiene. Your dog likely won't require a daily bath unless he's very active outdoors or is preparing to show off his coat to the judges, however, regardless of the frequency, the products you choose for bathing are just as important as the act itself.
We offer a range of bath products for dogs, and if you're looking for ways to add some extra luster and brightness to your companion's coat, we recommend you try Pink color-enhancing dog shampoo, a brightening shampoo for dogs.
Pink shampoos and conditioners are pH balanced to keep your dog's hair and skin in top shape no matter how often you bathe, and contain optical brighteners to enhance colored coats. Whether your dog is longhaired dachshund or curly poodle, Pink shampoos and conditioners can be used as often as you'd like. That's because Pink is a soapless dog shampoo, and its conditioning counterpart offers many valuable ingredients to keep hair beautiful and healthy in the long run.
These products can be used at full strength or diluted for that extra pick-me-up before a show or an important shoot with mall Santa. Pink smells great, washes out easily and can be followed up with one of our many styling products.
It doesn't matter what your dog's breed, brushing is an important part of any beauty regimen. Just ask Marsha Brady. If 100 strokes seems excessive to you, that's ok; depending on the size of your dog and the length of his hair, a regular brushing will likely only take you a few minutes a day.
Brushing is important because it keeps tangles and mats away and removes excess hair that makes the coat appear less lustrous. Dogs with an undercoat particularly benefit from brushing that helps remove any hair that’s ready to shed.
