Winter Dog Grooming, Fur and Skin Care Tips from the Pros

Cold weather dog care

Winter is the time for dry and itchy skin, salt-covered sidewalks giving way to mucky snow water, and all around miserable conditions. Just like we moisturize and care for ourselves during the rough winter months, our dogs deserve the same kind of attention.

As the cold finally moves across New Jersey, here are some tips to help care for your dog’s fur from Purr’n Pooch’s pet stylist and groomer Cherise Burczya, a 15-year-veteran of the pet resort:

1. Brush. Pups’ fur need tender loving care just like our own locks. Brushing promotes a healthy coat and skin, especially in the dry winter months. Regular brushing also helps reduce matting, something common when fur gets wet with snow or rain, and can help keep fur from clumping. And as an added bonus, regular brushing helps keep fur shiny by distributing the nutrients and oils that keep fur healthy and clean. Dogs need regular brushing no matter the length of their coat. Brushing is also a great way to bond with your pup.

2. Rinse. In the snowy winter, the salt used to melt snow and ice can mix with the liquid to create a nasty mess that can tangle in pups’ fur, resulting in matted, dull, dirty fur. Make sure to rinse off dirty fur after a bathroom break with warm water to prevent matting. But don’t forget the feet! The pads of the feet can quickly become aggravated with salt, resulting in painful paws for pups. Rinsing feet with warm water or cleaning them with a washcloth can help prevent irritation. 

A great way to soothe and pamper your pet’s tired, winter paws is with our paw pad cream, which contains vitamin E and essential oils. It can be added to any spa or grooming package for $5. The cream is also available for purchase in Purr’n Pooch’s retail boutiques for $10.

3. Moisturize. A dry winter can cause even drier skin due to dry, forced air, so it’s important to keep moisturized. Purr’n Pooch offers Oxy Oatmeal Soothing Baths, which soothe dry and irritated skin. And the Strawberry Milk Bath revitalizes damaged and stressed hair that will leave pups with healthy skin and a soft coat. If your pooch’s skin is extra dry, try a therapeutic hot oil treatment, which will boost and rejuvenate the skin and pores.

4. Groom. Most people think it’s good practice to keep a dog’s coat longer in the winter to stay warm. But actually, it’s better to keep your pooch trimmed during the cold winter. Inside dogs are acclimated to the heat, and aren’t in danger of becoming too cold. By leaving the fur longer, pups are susceptible to matting and a dingy coat, because the longer the fur, the longer it takes to dry after it gets wet. Cherise recommends continuing to groom and trim your dog as normal during the winter. Many dogs come into Purr’n Pooch regularly, typically every four to six weeks for a basic trim.

Make sure to pay special attention to your dog’s fur and skin this winter. Purr’n Pooch offers a variety of pampering services that can help keep dogs (and cats) healthy and happy this chilly season.

Aquatic Exercise and Swimming Helps Dogs Build Strength, Confidence

aquatic exercise

 

As humans, when we injure ourselves we are able to go to therapy to help strengthen our muscles and get back to our healthiest self. But what happens when a dog needs to heal after an injury or surgery?

At Purr’n Pooch, the answer to getting dogs back to their frolicking selves is often aquatic exercise sessions in our indoor pool located in Wall, NJ. Experienced and patient pet care technicians work with dogs, teaching them to move and play gently in the warm water. Aquatic exercise is great for dogs who need hydro sessions after an injury. The spa waters strengthen and gently condition muscles, preventing further injury and lessening pain.

Kylie Ann, a Golden Retriever, was just six years old when she ruptured her Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) and meniscus in her right knee and needed surgery. Her recovery was slow and restrictive, leading to weight and muscle mass loss and weakness. Kylie Ann was unable to play with her younger doggie brother, Casey, and became depressed.

This worried her owner, Kristin, but what also concerned her was the likelihood of the same injury happening to her other knee.

“After talking it over with her veterinarian, I decided to try Purr’n Pooch’s water sessions in order to help her physical rehabilitation after the surgery and mental well-being after being restricted and confined for weeks,” said Kristin. “I thought the general physical fitness and conditioning would help prevent the possibility of her rupturing the opposite knee in the future.”

Kylie Ann started work with Nick, aquatic director at Purr’n Pooch’s Wall location, in June 2014. Kylie had never been a big fan of the water and was fearful of new situations and new people, but she already knew and trusted Nick. Turns out, it was a perfect fit.

Kylie had early and continued success with her aquatic exercise sessions at Purr’n Pooch, which Kristin attributes to the type of personalized services offered.

“The sessions are one-on-one, ensuring individualized attention,” said Kristin. “They are conducted in an actual pool where the dog and human work together as a team in the water, allowing for a very unique and positive bonding experience.”

Kristin also attributes Kylie’s success to Nick, the pup’s beloved technician.

“Simply put, Nick is the reason Kylie Ann is healthier, happier, stronger and more confident dog today,” said Kristin. “He’s the best!

Kylie Ann was expected to have a slight limp after her surgery, but after three months of working with Nick in the pool, she not only recovered from surgery faster than expected, but she also had no evidence of a limp.

“She’s in the best condition of her life,” said Kristin. ‘Kylie Ann’s physical and emotional transformation were remarkable.”

In fact, Kylie Ann’s progress was so impressive, Kristin decided to bring her brother Casey, a one and a half mixed pup, to Purr’n Pooch’s Hydro Fun sessions. Casey, a pup rescued from a high-kill shelter, is sensitive and wary of other dogs. But with Nick’s help, Casey is benefiting from this engaging and enriching activity just like sis.

Casey started the sessions unable to swim. Now, the pup is learning to surf. Nick uses a surfboard with Casey, encouraging balance and coordination.

“Besides building confidence and being incredibly fun, the bonding, healthy exercise, reduction in stress, teaching of relaxation and increased body awareness and endurance has just been remarkably beneficial for Casey,” said Kristin. “Casey’s trusting and special relationship with Nick, coupled with his patience and compassion with Casey, has enabled my fearful little dog to relax more, increasing his self-confidence in and out of the water; simply above and beyond any of my expectations.”

Kylie Ann continues to work with Nick in the pool and build her strength and maintain a healthy weight. The objective now is to prevent another injury from happening and keeping Kylie Ann motivated and happy.

“I’m not sure there is anything that brings her as much joy and happiness as her weekly pool time with Nick,” said Kristin. “What a special bond they now share.”

Purr’n Pooch offers aquatic exercise sessions in our indoor spa pool located in Wall, NJ. Our experienced pet care instructors will care and comfort your dog with ease and patience. Swimming, games, and other exercise routines are part of the fun as your friend learns to move and play gently in our warm, spa waters. Private sessions are available and the pool setting is calm and quiet – ideal for relaxation and rejuvenation. Click here for more information.

Make Your Dog a Big Part of Your Wedding Day

Latonya and Timothy Brennan with Churchill at their wedding reception. The Brennans chose Purr’n Pooch to help them care for Churchill on their big day.

It’s your special day. You’re marrying the love of your life. Your friends and family are surrounding you in celebration of your big day. So why not take a few moments to celebrate with your furry friends as well? 

Couples are increasingly choosing to make their four-legged friends part of their wedding ceremonies. From carrying the rings down the aisle to flower girls leading dogs on a leash to the bride and groom, pets are a vital part of the special day. 

Ryan and Sarah Taggart made sure to include their border collie, Angus, in their ceremony. Angus was front and center during the vow exchange, watching mom and dad unite in marriage. Then Ryan and Sarah walked down the aisle as husband and wife with Angus right by their side. 

“Angus is the third member of our family, and we wanted to walk out as a complete family,” said Sarah.  “I met Angus the same night I met Ryan. Having him in our wedding was really important to both of us. He was on our engagement photo shoot and spent most of our wedding day with us.”  

Just as the bride and groom primps for the big day, pups need special grooming too, and Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts excels at getting your handsome pup ready for the ceremony. The resort will handle, transport, groom and board your dog for the special occasion so you can concentrate on prepping for your wedding. 

Latonya Brennan knew her wedding wouldn’t be complete without her bulldog Churchill, so she and her now husband Timothy turned to Purr’n Pooch to make that happen. 

“He’s our only child, so we wanted him to be a part of our wedding day,” said Latonya. “He’s such a significant part of our lives, all of our guests were expecting to see him there.” 

Churchill, a four-year-old pooch who loves to play and hang out with his friends, was treated like royalty the day of the Brennan wedding by the staff at Purr’n Pooch. The pup was given a bath and groomed for the big day and fitted with a classy tie and matching leash. Then Connor Kelly, a kennel technician at Purr’n Pooch, transported him to the Molly Pitcher Inn in Red Bank for the reception. 

“Purr’n Pooch went above and beyond to accommodate all of our needs,” said Latonya. “Churchill wasn’t allowed to be in the hotel, so when it started to rain Connor stayed outside with him through the short shower. He even stuck around with Churchill so we could take photos before taking our pup back to the resort.” 

Photo 2

Ryan and Sarah Taggart knew they wanted their pup Angus with them during their special day. Dogs are increasingly becoming part of wedding ceremonies and receptions.

Connor, who has been working at Purr’n Pooch for more than a year, is the designated pet transporter for pet wedding services booked through the resort. But that’s not all he does on the big day. He also stays at the ceremony or reception to help with anything the happy new couple and their pup need. 

“I’ll stay within shouting distance so I can help with pictures or anything else they request,” said Connor. “I try to go the extra mile for our clients. I’d even stand out in the snow if I had to.” 

Now that’s dedication. 

And that dedication and passion is how Latonya knew she could trust Purr’n Pooch with Churchill on her big day. 

“He plays such a significant role in who we are, he is part of our family,” said Latonya. “Not to have him there would have been devastating, and Purr’n Pooch made it happen for us.” 

And the great service didn’t stop after the reception ended. When Latonya came to pick up Churchill after his stay, there was a special package waiting for the new bride. 

“It was a Purr’n Pooch coffee mug, and I use it every day!” said Latonya. 

Purr’n Pooch understands just how important weddings are, and how important it is for beloved dogs to share in the celebration. 

“Pets are just as important as any family member in my eyes,” said Connor. “And one of the biggest thing you can do in your life is get married. It’s a no-brainer that you’d want your best friend there.” 

So if you want your furry friend to be a big part of your big day, let Purr’n Pooch take care of the details so you can focus on your other Mr. or Mrs. Right. Purr’n Pooch offers several wedding packages for you and your pup. Email info@purrnpooch.com for a complete list of packages and prices.

Be With Your Dog When You Say I Do On Your Wedding Day

Be With Your Dog When You Say I Do On Your Wedding Day

Wedding season is in full swing, and this year you’re going to see more and more furry guests making appearances at ceremonies and receptions. You’ve probably already seen many engagement photos featuring pets – it’s definitely not uncommon these days! With 65% of households owning pets in the U.S., it’s no surprise that recently more couples are opting to include their best friends in their wedding ceremonies. Many people consider their pet to be their best friend or part of the family, so it only makes sense that more brides and grooms are taking part in this big day trend.

If you’re one of the lucky ones getting hitched this year or in the process of planning your wedding, consider inviting another member into your bridal party. It’s up to you how involved you’d like your pup to be. He can be a special guest of honor, walk down the aisle, and stand with the wedding party during the ceremony, or perhaps he could have a specific role, such as ring bearer or flower girl. Pictures with your pup is also something to consider – you’ll always want to remember those special moments!

Of course, there will be no need for you to worry about your pup’s agenda; we know you’ll have enough on your mind that day. You can put all worries aside about how your pup will look and who will assist him. The staff at Purr’n Pooch can handle, transport, groom and board your best friend for your special occasion. We’ll be prepping your pup before he makes his appearance and caring for him while you’re enjoying your first night as Mr. and Mrs., and also while you’re off on your honeymoon.
