Some might think that pampering your pooch over the top, but they deserve to be spoilt. They shower us with unconditional love after all.

Grooming Sessions
Pets such as cats are self-cleaning, so you don’t need to worry all too much about keeping them fresh and groomed. But we all know the hassle that is getting a dog into a sudsy bath. There are countless videos online of man’s best friend doing everything in their means to avoid a dip in the tub. So why put yourself and your pet through the hassle? Avoid flooded bathroom floors and send your pup to a good quality pet salon. They will be handled by professionals who know the best ways to make the experience enjoyable for them. What’s best? They’ll leave smelling divine with clipped claws, fresh fur and maybe even a fancy blow dry to boot. For shedding dogs, a groom can be an occasional treat, as and when you feel the need. However, for non-shedding, curly-haired breeds, grooming is a must, and your pooch should be booked in every six to eight weeks to avoid dreadlocks and irritation to their sensitive skin.

Wearable Accessories
We’ve all seen a chihuahua dressed up in a little tutu or other outfits at some point. Many people with miniature breeds seem to have a penchant for clothing their dogs like little humans. But these aren’t the only type of wearable accessories for dogs out there. There’s something to suit every dog without making them uncomfortable or looking too extravagant. Subtle accessories are the way to go, so if you have a large or cheeky ruffian of a pooch, try a little doggy bandana around their neck. Clip on bandanas are available to avoid choking hazards. There are endless styles of collars out there, from flashy diamante encrusted pieces to more subtle woven or leather designs. You could also try out a dog harness in your favorite color. Harnesses are a practical item, designed to make your dog more comfortable when walking on a leash. But that’s not to say they have to be dull and plain. Find a style that your dog is comfortable walking in and then start searching for designs, colors, and patterns that stand out.

Home Accessories

Dogs have plenty of possessions sprawled out across your home. This could easily start to look messy but invest in products that match the general decor of your living space. Pet beds are available in a variety of styles and colors, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find one that matches the tone of your furniture. You can also pick dog bowls that match the accessories in the space where your dog eats.

Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…
