Have your heard the saying, “A dog’s life’? Originally it meant that life was darn hard. Sleeping rough, guarding property and chasing rats. Now days, many dogs live pretty sweet lives. We notice so many cute dogs on our travels that we decided to ask a few to share their beauty tips.
Tip #1 Drink Plenty of Water
How much water a dog needs depends on size, activity level and of course the weather. Humans are around 60% water and we lose water throughout the day. It’s recommended you sip up to ½ a gallon a day. Try infusing your water with fresh fruits and herbs to add a bit of beauty and hopefully you'll be drinking your daily requirement.
Tip #2 Get Plenty of Sleep
Dogs need about 12-14 hours of sleep and have the ability to sleep just about anywhere- the couch, the bed, the back seat of the car. Humans need around 8 and we often struggle with getting enough sleep. A bedtime routine can really help. Our soothing “Bring on the ZZZZ’s balm can be part of your nightly routine. Simply rub on temples and under your nose to help you take those important deep breaths. Herbal tea and no TV are two other tips to help you get your ZZZZ’s.
Tip #3 Don’t Forget to Floss
Dogs chew a lot and this chewing is good for their teeth. Flossing helps our gums, gets rid of stuck bits of food and helps keep our breath nice and sweet.
Tip #4 Size Doesn’t Matter
Dogs come in all shapes and sizes and so do we. Dogs don’t worry too much about their size but we sure do. Embrace your size and find some clothes that feel good and make you look good. For me, skinny jeans just make me feel awkward and I feel and therefore look better in boot cut jeans. I stick with what makes me feel good.
Tip #5 Treat Yourself to a Natural Facial
Dogs love to dig and get dirty. Sometimes we need to do the same and a facial is one way to go. It’s an easy way to make your skin look fresh and lovely. Remember you want natural ingredients not a bunch of chemicals.
Tip #6 Spas are an Occasional Treat
All our dogs hate baths but love, love, love a good soak. You deserve an occasional soak yourself. The benefits of a relaxing bath along with a glass of wine and a good book are many. If you don’t have a tub or the time, treat yourself to our Shower Shots- made in jello shot molds they’re a “Happy Hour for Your Shower”.
Tip #7 Dress Up Occasionally
There are a lot of fun accessories for dogs and occasionally dress up and heading out is the perfect antidote to having too much to do.
Tip #8 Moderation
Dogs love to play, play, play but then they have no problem getting their beauty rest. It’s great to go out and have a good time but if you’ve overdone it try our Hangover Relief Smelling Salt. Packed with essential oils that help combat headaches and nausea you’ll soon be out walking your dog.
