If your pet stylist is too busy to fit your fur kiddo in for a groom ask if she could squeeze her in for a bath only, or a simple brush-out. There is a chance the stylist will have time for one of those options. Your fur kid will look great even without a fresh haircut. If that is not an option that here are a few tips for a stress-free make-over at home.
4 TIPS FOR A NO-BATH MAKE-OVER AT HOME
BRUSH INSTEAD OF BATHE
If you are short on time but your dog needs a clean-up, brush and save the bath for later. Spritz fur with GreenDog Botanics Skin Spray, then brush the debris and dirt from her fur, she will look clean and smell fresh. If your dog is restless while being brushed, spritz GreenDog Botanics Calm Spray before you begin, she will be a lot easier to work with.
To remove gum or grease from dog’s hair, rub peanut butter into the substance, it will dissolve the debris then remove it with a comb. Remove peanut butter by applying GreenDog Botanics Skin Spray. Rub briskly with towel.
DIY DRY SHAMPOO
Combine one cup cornstarch with one tablespoon of GreenDog Botanics Calm Spray. Mix thoroughly. When dry apply cornstarch liberally to dry fur. Massage in, brush out. Your dog is clean and calm with a fresh lavender scent.
FINISH WITH A SPRITZ
Spritz eyes with GreenDog Botanics Eye Mist wipe away debris with cotton ball. Clip on your favorite bow or bandana and add a spritz of GreenDog Botanics Calm Spray and your furry kiddo is ready to go.
If you do have a little more time, always brush your dog first before her bath. When tangled fur gets wet, the tangles tighten, creating matting very difficult to brush out.
