Show some extra love and attention
Dogs are well-known to be loyal and loving companions often referred to as 'man's best friend', and with each dog comes a different and unique personality. At Christies Direct, we're all dog lovers, and what better month to celebrate this love than in February? With Valentine's Day celebrated on the 14th of February we want to take every day this month to remind you to show your dog that extra bit of love and attention, whether it be at home or in the salon.
Check out some of our favourite products for a groom full of love and some tips on how to grow your bond with your pooch.
A part of the family
These fiercely loyal, extremely intelligent, and down-right adorable companions quickly become a part of the family so it's important to take the time to build a solid relationship that works for both you and them.
The three main components to ensure this connection are love, trust and respect.
Spend as much time as you can with your dog, giving them that extra special attention
Communicate. Take the time to learn your dog's language and how they communicate through body language
This has to be earned, not demanded. Take the time to properly train your dog and let them know you're in charge.
Perfectly groomed pooches
Why not use this month to schedule in your dog's trip to the groomers to ensure their coat is in top shape and give them some time for a pamper. Not a fan of the groomers?

The key to a shiny and smooth coat
Many dogs love to be brushed, however not all do. A key to keeping a dog's coat shiny and smooth is regular brushing so getting them to grips with the process is important for a smoother grooming routine. Start with lighter strokes, making sure your dog is comfortable and relaxed before working your way up to more firm brushing strokes.
Take time and care
The upkeep of a dogs nails is important to ensure there is no impact or damage to the feet which could cause pain when walking. You can tell when to clip your dog's nails between grooms by examining them and ensuring the nails do not extend beyond the pad, or listen out for them clicking and scratching along hard flooring. When clipping the nails take time and care to only cut the dead end off and avoid the nerve and blood supply, commonly known as the 'quick'.
