There are many celebrities and musicians out there who simply cannot bear to leave their dogs at home alone all day long. Many people love to take their pets along for a drive, on shopping expeditions and some musicians and celebrities even bring their furry friends along when doing performances. There is absolutely nothing wrong with loving your pet this much. Your little companion probably loves the excitement of seeing and exploring new things and can even improve your overall celebrity image because you are seen as a compassionate person.
Here are a few care tips to get your dog stage ready and looking fabulous every time you set foot in public or head out for a performance.
Trim Those Nails
If your beloved dog enjoys frequent car rides with you then one of the first things you need to do is to start grooming those nails. Long toenails can be terribly painful to dogs and can cause horrific scratches on your car seats and interior. There are lots of different dog grooming clippers on the market. Here’s a link that shows you how to choose the best dog grooming clippers and that teaches you which ones work best on which dogs.
A Good Bath
You do need to give your dog a bath before taking him along on the trip. A good doggy bath will get rid of lots of loose pet hair that might cling to your clothes and your furry friend will smell wonderful. Use a good pet shampoo and your dog’s fur coat will also be much shinier and softer.
Brush Your Dog’s Teeth
Yes, you can and actually should brush your dog’s teeth. They, like us, also get gum diseases, plaque and those dirty teeth make your dog’s breath smell all dog breath like. Visit your vet and invest in a good quality dog toothbrush and toothpaste and clean your pet’s teeth on a regular basis from now on. If your furry friend isn’t very friendly towards teeth brushing then you can also consider teeth cleaning snacks for a daily cleanser.
Comb Your Pet
Dogs that shed a lot of hair should be combed to get all of those loose furs out of their coats. The combing also increases blood circulation to your pet’s skin which promotes healthy hair growth and great looking skin.
Time for a Beautiful Outfit
Pet outfits are very trendy right now and they can be pretty functional as well. These clothes can keep your furry friend nice and warm when it is chilly and can make it much easier to keep your dog on a collar for a long while. And if you are not that into pet outfits then you can always consider a cute bow tie collar for a perfect stage look.
Remember To Pack Your Pet Goodies
It is important to keep your pet nourished and watered even as you travel. Invest in a travel bowl and waterer so you can keep your furry friend hydrated and healthy at all times.
