It’s summer and that means much more time spent out doors for your pooch. And in turn that means more baths.
Some dogs love baths, others not so much. But to make bath-time less stressful for you and your dog, we have some sure fire tips to help bath-time go as smoothly as possible.
Timing – Timing is everything. Try and wash your dog when he’s full of energy, agitated or feeling playful then you’ll probably be the one who ends up having a bath. Baths should happen when your dog is happy, already played and blissfully tired.
Prep – Make sure you have everything set up before you begin. That means extra towels, tub or basin filled with the desired temperature (not too hot; we recommend treating the water temperature like you would with a baby), extra water in jugs, shampoos and conditioners (of course, we most definintely recommend Royal Treatment, but do make sure you use quality, natural products designed for dogs), brushes and comb, and of course old clothes and even an apron for you.
Demeanor – Some dogs can be skittish about being wet or indeed shampooed, combed and brushed. Make sure you’re also in a good mood when it comes time for the bath. Talk to your dog in a soothing, calm way, and always praise him each step of the way. This will go a long way to making your dog look forward to the next bath (or at least not loathe it as much.
Treats – Of course, have treats ready for your pup the moment he’s clean and dry. Do it immediately after the bath (in the bathroom, or wherever you washed him) so he’ll associate bath-time with good things.
Follow our simple tips and you’ll soon find bath-time lot of fun!

Hello everyone! This past week has been very full. There were dinners, naps, more naps, funraising, runs in the park, some bird-chasing, a date, rolling in the mud, delicious baths (I love baths!), and adoptapalooza with my pal, Lorenzo!
Today I’m have a bit of a rest, but I wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out and supported the very noble cause of finding my cat and dog friends new homes! They’re all fantastic and they all need a loving home (and just think of how much love you’ll be getting back in return!)
Lorenzo looked very spiffy showcasing the dogs in the mornings and the cats, well, they didn’t need any help. They sat in their cages looking all regal and cat-like.
There were games, raffles, prizes and more celebrities than you could shake a stick at!
This week I need your help! You know I’m a staunch advocate of Royal Treatment products. Not only are they specially formulated to help doggy skin and fur (how else do you think I manage to stay looking this good? It’s all natural, baby), but these luxurious products for dogs are natural and organic, made from the very best ingredients Lorenzo could find!
But you shouldn’t take my word for it! If you haven’t tried them, sign up for a free sample! If you have, then leave us some feedback on the product page. We’d love to hear from you!
Til next time!

Dogs benefit from grooming, and not just the long haired hippy types, either.
Not only do they look better after a nice shampooing and brushing, but they feel better, too. Brushing helps distribute the natural oils and keeps coats stay shiny in between dog salon visits.
If your dog has long hair, it can often look dull and get matted. A lot of people think it’s easier to simply get the dog shaved. But this is a bad idea. Shaving exposes the dog to the elements, especially the sun (which can lead to sunburn). And remember, dogs aren’t meant to go naked. They like wearing fur. It protects them, keeps them warm and looks good.
If you’re worried about dealing with unruly long hair then why not try some organic or luxury dog shampoos, conditioners and other supplies. The right product can make your dog’s fur silky and smooth and miraculously knot and burr free.
These kind of quality products have the added bonus of keeping your dog’s skin nice and moisturised and are often created to help even the most sensitive or problematic dog skin.
So there you go. Get yourself a nice brush, and some top notch pet grooming supplies and you’ll be the talk of the town (or at least the doggy park).

Dogs, more than cats, are in need of constant grooming.
Whether it be baths or haircuts or visits to the local groomer, they’re all important. But in this busy world (not to mention the economy), it’s hard to fit all the grooming routines to make your dog look his shiny best.
Or is it?
Yes, a good bath and a brushing down does wonders, but a lot of what makes your dog look and feel his best is through top notch nutrition.
As we know the quality food available for our pets come in many different brands and types, but there are some dogs who need more attention and special treatment to look and feel good…and the rest of our canine pals, well, a bit of extra help will never hurt, will it?
That’s where quality, natural pet supplements come in to play. They can help make the coat shiny, your dog healthier and make grooming time much more fun (not to mention less often).
And of course, good home grooming supplies may seem a luxury, but if you throw them into the mix, then you’ll have a dog who looks salon groomed with minimal effort on your part, which we love…because less time spent doing those ‘chores’ means more time spent having fun with your doggy pal.
