The activity and physical look of a dog are reflections of the type of care that they receive from their owners. If you want your dog to look lovely and feel healthy, you have to do everything that will make them look healthy and feel healthy. As humans, we like to care for our body daily by doing everything that will make us comfortable and healthy. This type of care is also good for dogs. Daily grooming and healthcare are very important to ensure your dog stays healthy and lovely. They not only make your dog active and happy, they also help you to quickly notice injuries and illnesses before they do a lot of harm to your dog.

Here are daily grooming and health tips for your pet dog:

1. Choose the right food

Dogs should be fed foods containing balanced nutrition. You should visit a veterinarian for advice on the right type of food to feed your dog.
Some dogs may need special nutrients which you may not be able to determine if you do not seek the help of a veterinarian. Also, care should be taken not to give your dog from the food you eat, as it can cause digestive issues.

2. Brushing

You should brush your dog daily or regularly to keep his hair lovely and smooth.
Some of the other benefits of brushing your dog daily or regularly are:
• It will help you get rid of ticks of fleas that might be hiding in his hair and causing them discomfort.
• It will help you get rid of dog hairs before they get trapped on your clothes or furniture.
• It is a good way to check the health of his coat and skin.
• Dogs enjoy it when we brush their hair, so brushing your dog is a good way to bond with your pet.
• Brushing your dog regularly gives you the regular opportunity to notice any abnormality that may require the help of a veterinarian.

3. Nail cleaning and trimming

To prevent breaks, infection, and the harm that dog nails can do to you when you play with them, you should get their nails cleaned and trimmed daily or regularly.

4. Exercise

The importance of keeping your dog active every day cannot be overemphasized. Dogs need to be active everyday so you should always create time for dog exercise every day. Each dog breed have specific activities that they really enjoy and this are the activities you should engage them in.
The great thing about dog exercise is that it involves activities that humans also enjoy. Some fun activities you can do with your dog daily are hide-and-seek, tug of war, playing fetch, jogging or running with your dog, and going for a walk.

5. Oral Care

Giving your dog a regular oral care can prevent many health problems. Brush his teeth regularly, check his gums and tongues regularly, and give him dental chews.

6. Regular Bath

Daily bathing is never recommended for dogs. Every 2 to 4 weeks is sufficient for small indoor dogs that are brushed daily. Dogs that spend a lot of time outdoors or get wet frequently can benefit from once a week bath with a mild moisturizing oatmeal-based, soap free shampoo. Do not forgot to carry oversized luxury spa hand towel. Embroidered with Happy colors. It can also work in any bath or drying area where you need to add a splash of color to the home decor. It’s also great for drying the dog’s paws at the door.

Also, some breeds don’t travel well in cargo, such as snub-nosed dogs like pugs, which are prone to breathing difficulties. Many major airlines no longer allow such breeds to fly in the cargo.

2. Research Time – A thorough research needs to be done on regulations and fees of airlines, whether your pet flies in the cabin or as checked baggage, airline’s history of flying animals so as to avoid any crisis which may occur due to any of the above stated reasons.

6. ID Tags – Attach contact information to both your pet’s collar and its carrier.

7. Exercise – Before the flight, play or take your pet for a walk. The more tired your pet is, the more likely it is to sleep during the trip.

8. ThunderShirt – The ThunderShirt is a wearable solution that can be used to help your pet with dog separation anxiety, travel stress, fear or thunder and other loud noises, and other canine anxieties.

9. Relax – Use aromatic lavender oil as an “association scent” to help your pet relaxed while flying. In the weeks before the flight, put a drop of oil on your hands at feeding times or before walks. Once onboard, “the positive association will allow the pet to calm down and remain relaxed.”

10. Familiarity – Keep a familiar blanket or toy with your pet to help it feel more comfortable during the trip.
