you may want to look into medium sized dogs. They are not too big nor too small but just the right size to keep everyone happy and safe.
For the pet owner that loves to pamper their pooch, your dog can now get a blueberry dog facial! While this may sound like it's just a fad, we think it might be here to stay because there really are some great benefits, such as, treating tear stains, improving dry skin and brightening your dog's coat.
We've been hearing about these trendy blueberry dog facials and wanted to learn more. So we sat down with the Seaport Paw, where they offer the famous blueberry facial to get the scoop:
We've heard that blueberry facials for dogs are all the rage. What's the difference between having a blueberry facial and just cleaning / shampooing your dog's face?
The difference between a blueberry facial and just cleaning/shampooing your dog’s face is in the product itself. The blueberry facial not only cleans your dog’s face but it has a natural exfoliating activity and is slightly hydrating. The blueberry facial is a true session that takes 15 minutes, where your dog is hand dried and the effects of the blueberry facial last for days.
Dogs seem to love it! Not only is this product dog friendly but the dogs are happy, calm and loving life while getting their blueberry facial.
The blueberry facial can be used similar to a mask and you could leave it on for 5 minutes, especially if you need to massage any folds or work on any tear staining.
It will not cause any staining of a dog’s coat.
The blueberry facial is also a hypoallergenic, tearless and a lick-safe shampoo. It can be used as a whole body shampoo and brightener, as a special request. White coat dogs can look even brighter when we use this product as a shampoo.
The products used for this type of facial are specifically formulated for dogs. The shampoo contains no sulphates or harsh chemicals that other dog shampoos might have. In addition the product is pH balanced which means it won’t irritate your dogs natural skin barrier.
No, dogs can receive a blueberry facial at home to keep their skin healthy and clean! Washing your pet’s face with a blueberry shampoo is just similar to cleaning your own face — no need to be a pro groomer.
The key is making sure that you select the best product to use at home and being extra careful around your dog's eye, nose, and mouth areas to avoid any adverse reactions.
It's made with natural ingredients like oatmeal and blueberries that soothe your dog's skin, while leaving it soft and smelling sweet. The tear-free face wash gently foams to lift dirt away without irritating eyes, and exfoliates skin to remove tear and beard stains.
Dogs get to enjoy relaxation with all their senses stimulated. Some dogs even close their eyes during the session because they enjoy it so much! During that time dogs become calmer and gentler which makes brushing/combing sessions easier.
The blueberry facial stimulates the natural oil glands around the eye area so tear stains disappear, dogs have soft shiny coats and dogs look young again.
Dogs that have dry itchy skin due to allergies or other problems will benefit too, because dogs with certain conditions can actually experience pain when the coat is not shiny anymore. Dog owners find that their pup stop scratching and chewing on themselves after using blueberry shampoo.
If your pup has a light-colored hair, blueberry shampoo helps brighten their hair even more!
The point in giving your dog the blueberry facial is to make them feel like they are getting pampered. If your pup enjoys it and the process makes them relaxed and calm, then it is worth every penny!
If your dog is too stressed during bath time or grooming sessions, this may not be for them.
