4 Ways In Which You Can Spoil Your Dog Rotten
You spoil your pooch as close to rotten as you can get, don't
you? Hey, who doesn't? It's almost impossible not to, with those
adorable, big, beautiful eyes, the little lashes, the soft fur
just behind the ears? they almost beg to be spoiled. But what can
you really do? There are all of those new doggie day spas, doggie
day cares, and other doggie luxury services, but how often can
you really afford things like that? I mean, most people rarely
have enough cash in the bank to get themselves a surprise
manicure and pedicure, much less spring for their pups to get a
quadruple pedicure. You give her a few scratches behind the ears, rub
her belly, and maybe give her a massage and splurge on some
gourmet treats, but you have to pay rent and eat each month. Your
budget just doesn't allow for constant spoiling of your dog?
1. Or does it?
You can make the shampoos, fragrances, and skin conditioners
the doggie day spas use whenever you want for a lot less money
than you think. Wouldn't your pup love to have an at-home spa
treatment? Give these recipes a shot the next time you want to
pamper that pup:
2. Aromatic Dry Shampoo
250 ml (1 cup) cornmeal
250 ml (1 cup) baby/talcum powder
5 ml (1 tsp) rosemary
5 ml (1 tsp) lavender
Combine all of the ingredients in a large, airtight container
and let them sit overnight. This will allow the rosemary and
lavender to scent the other two ingredients lightly. When ready,
sprinkle generously over your dog and brush it into her fur by
working your fingers against the lay of her coat. Once it's
worked in thoroughly, use your fingers or a hard rubber brush to
massage her coat in the direction of the fur but working in
circles. Brush until the mixture is completely out of the coat.
Your baby will smell great, the powder and cornmeal help absorb
excess oil and dirt to clean her, and she won't have had to go
through the trauma of having a full bath! How great is that?
3. Herbal Shampoo
470 ml (2 cups) purified water
10 ml (1 tbsp) rosemary
10 ml (1 tbsp) orange zest
30 ml (2 tbsp) chamomile
10 ml (1 tbsp) lavender oil
120 ml (1/2 cup) baby shampoo
Bring water to a boil, then remove from heat. Add all of the
herbs, cover the dish, and allow it to steep overnight. Strain
the mixture and stir in the oils, then gently add the shampoo
until well-mixed. This shampoo should be kept refrigerated for
freshness when not in use, but use about 2 tablespoons every time
you wash your dog for a sweet-smelling, great treat for both of
you. Don't forget to give her a little massage while you're
rubbing it in!
4. Lemon Flea Dip
940 ml (1 quart) water
60 ml (1/4 cup) baking soda
5 ml (1 tsp) herbal shampoo
Cut the lemons into eighths while bringing the water to a
rolling boil. Add the lemons, boil for one hour, then cover and
let the mixture steep overnight. Strain the solution then add the
remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Warm to a tepid
temperature before applying. To spoil your pup with the
application, dip a sponge into the water and drizzle it slowly
over her coat, then use your fingers to work it in using slow,
deliberate circles focusing on points like the hips and
shoulders. Give her a good massage - she deserves it! This
shampoo uses citrus oil to help repel fleas, but the warm water
and baking soda also help to soothe any existing irritations she
