There are lots of things to consider when trying to create an effective way of washing and drying your muddy dog. It has taken me a long time to work out the best and easiest way to get Leo and Charley sparkling clean and dry after their winter walks.
So here are the top 10 things that have really helped me get to grips with cleaning up the dogs and that keep us all happy after every muddy walk.
Living with a dog gives us a sense of security and it means there’s always someone to spend the day with. Dogs can be so affectionate and loving which makes them the perfect companion especially for older people and those living alone. Our two definitely make us feel needed and loved every day!
Having a dog in the house can also give real comfort to those who suffer from anxiety. Taking them out for walks can provide encouragement and motivation for people who might be anxious about leaving the house as their naturally carefree behaviour helps to stop you thinking stressful thoughts.
Here is a list of Leo and Charley’s top ten favourite dog chew and treats. Some of them can be made at home and others are available from various businesses who specialise in supplying natural, additive and preservative free dog treats.
There are also a few recipes which are easy to follow and links where you can finds the other treats on offer.
Spaniel Aid UK has become the dog rescue charity that we support because they saved Charley from being put to sleep when she was only 14 months old.
This worthy charity has rescued more than 2000 dogs since they started in 2015. So we donate funds from every sale to help their volunteers to keep doing such valuable work.
During the start of this Coronavirus pandemic I have felt totally helpless and frustrated that I’m not able to help my NHS colleagues to combat this invisible enemy.
So when I found something I could do, I decided to act immediately and start sewing scrubs for NHS staff.
My handmade dog accessories business came about when we welcomed Leo and Charley into our lives. These two dogs provide the inspiration behind the products, they model them, test them out and are my companions whilst I sew.
