Essential Dog Supplies for the Responsible Owner

dog shampoo and conditionerCaring for a dog is a responsibility, and a very enjoyable and rewarding one at that. Ensuring the welfare of your furry friend is made easier by having the right dog supplies. We have listed below some of the basic necessities that you should have on hand as a responsible dog owner:

Dog Grooming Supplies

Dog grooming tools and products are essential items that any dog owner should have. These will ensure that your dog is clean and that their fur coat is healthy and beautiful. For short haired dogs, a good bristle-brush and nail-clippers may be enough. For long haired canines, you’ll need more grooming tools like a dematting comb and trimming shears.

Dog bathing Supplies

Depending on the breed of dog that you own, bathing may need to be done as frequently as twice a month to once a month or less. When bathing, you should fore-go shampoo made for humans, as this may be too harsh. Instead, buy a shampoo and conditioner developed especially to care for your dog’s coat and skin, at D4DOGZ we even have dog shampoo for smelly pooches.

Dog Treats

Your dog will agree with us here – quality dog treats are a high priority. Avoid cheap dog treats found at the $2 shops, these are more than likely imported, therefore irradiated, instead choose Australian dried or even better Dehydrated dog treats. Our dog treats are all packaged to avoid any contaminants coming into contact with them, thus ensuring your dog is getting the very best just as they deserve.

Dog Toys

Dogs need entertainment, exercise and mental stimulation as much as people do. Dog toys divert your dog’s attention and energy, and are also useful as rewards during dog training. And for those days when you’re not feeling as energetic as your dog, then having toys on hand benefits the both of you.

You may well want to go beyond basic dog supplies, especially if you’re the type who loves to spoil your pooch. Designer dog clothes, dog accessories, and stylish matching dog collars and dog bowls are just some of the wonderful products we stock at D4DOGZ. Please look around our online store, and we are sure you’ll find plenty of dog supplies that you and your dog will love.
