Cleansers And Groomers
Good cleansers may seem a little extra to some as they prefer using their hands to clean the fur. However, these items enhance the efficacy of shampoos and make bathing and cleaning your pooch easier and quicker. Although the market is full of a wide variety of brushes that may seem useful and handy, what we really need to focus on is how they make our pets feel. Are they comfortable? Too harsh? Too soft to even work? We suggest you opt for silicone-made brushes like our Shampoo Stoup and Brush Set that are soft enough to not hurt or scratch the delicate skin and stiff enough to comb through the fur and remove stuck dirt and grime easily. A multipurpose set of Glove, Hair Cleaner, Nail Scissors and Nail Filer with grooming accessories and brushes cum massagers is a great choice too. While the grooming tools make it convenient to cut and file nails for neat and healthy paws, the massaging brushes offer double the benefit by reducing the time taken to bathe your pet and additionally massage their skin gently to calm them during the process, a thing many experienced pet owners will certainly think is impossible!
Cold and rains are a constant for people in the UK. No wonder our furry friends find this climate irritable as well. Blankets, pet socks, sweaters are obvious to-buy items. But another necessity is a soft, warm and cosy bed. Fur beds may be good options but for those who wish to opt for animal-friendly options, faux fur or faux suede dog beds are simply perfect! Varieties with soft and spongy filling like memory foam are super comfortable as they take up the shape of your pet’s body and support it in all the right places for customised cosiness.
Little puppies and kittens are very delicate. So much so that Vets often advise owners to not take them outdoors for at least a month or two or only after all their vaccinations are administered. But what if it’s a necessity? After all, you need to take them to the doctor too? Don’t worry! All you need is a pet carrier. TJC recommends bags that are handy, easy to carry and soft on the carrier’s shoulder but also cosy and comfortable for the pet. Waterproof and properly ventilated nylon pet carriers are a great choice as these are not only easy to maintain and clean but also offer an airy and comfortable environment to our pet keeping them calm and making them feel safe.
