Fluffy dogs are sooo great to cuddle up to but what is the best way to groom them to ensure their coat is beautiful and soft as it can be? Here are our top tips for maintaining that super-fluffy, irresistibly cuddly coat...
Experts say to brush your pup every couple of days, regardless of the length of its hair. Brushing is great for your dog's coat and skin as it distributes natural oils, removes dead hair and stimulates the skin so that it's healthy.
As well as brushing, most fluffy pups do need regular bathing. It's important not to bathe too often as it will dry out skin and strip natural oils, but every 2-4 months should be fine. Remember to use a dog-friendly shampoo
Looking after their paws
Dogs are on their paws the whole day - both inside and out, so it's really important to look after their feet. Trimming their dog hair around their paws helps to stop dirt, debris and other items getting caught in their feet. All you need to do is trim the hair that grows over their foot and around their paw pad - don't attempt to trim between the toes.
Looking after teeth:
Keeping on top of your dog's teeth with eliminate extra vet visits and expenses. Dogs can suffer from the same dental issues as we do (such as cavities, tartar and gum disease) so it's important to clean their teeth 2 or 3 times a week. You can buy special doggy toothbrushes and tooth past to make your job easier (don't use toothpaste though as it will upset your dog's stomach)
Keep it happy and positive - and get help when you need it!
Make sure that you keep grooming a nice, happy experience for your dog so that you both enjoy it. Reward your dog when he/she's done well with extra cuddles or a treat. However, don't be afraid to enlist the help of a professional groomer when needed - sometimes your dog will need that little extra bit of care just as us humans do!
And for when hair gets around the house...
Having hair around the house it part and parcel of owning a hairy, fluffy dog, however there are ways to keep on top of it, and grooming regularly will help to reduce the amount of hair around the house. Another, is of course to wash your dog's hairy pet bedding with Vamoosh Pet Hair Dissolver :)

We recently found out about a lady who goes by the name of 'Thrifty Clair'. She describes herself as a "thirty year old bargain loving, money saving and penny pinching enthusiast living in Greater Manchester."
She runs a great blog over at 'www.thriftyclair.com' which has loads of savvy money saving tips, coupon codes and all the latest deals and bargain spots. These are tried and tested techniques she's used herself after finding herself into debt after university. Fast forward 9 years and she's now debt free, on the property ladder, and planning her wedding later this year.
We were delighted when Clair got in touch and asked to give Vamoosh a try and review it on her blog. Here are some excerpts from her blog and review of Vamoosh. To read the full blog, please go to www.thriftyclair.com
If you’re a fellow pet lover with a hatred of moulted pet hair, then you might want to give this a go…
Shane and I have had Poppy since she was three years old, and in June she turned 10! That’s seven years of cute Pomeranian fun but also seven years of Pom fur all over the house! As soon as the summer months roll in Poppy begins to moult a ridiculous amount, I swear we could create a second dog with the amount of fur that comes off her. This is just from one quick brush and she’s not even moulting much at the moment!
Over the years we have tried everything to get the fur off her bedding (and ours as well). We’ve used rubber brushes, hoovered off the embedded hair, using sticky tape to de-fuzz the furniture and even had sticky rollers that can be rinsed off but nothing has been effective enough.
However, I recently discovered Vamoosh who very kindly sent me a few sachets to try out for free to see if this could be the answer to my pet hair problems. So last night, I put poppies bedding in the wash with two sachets as suggested and lo and behold, it has come out of the machine with a lot less fuzz! There were still a couple of hairs here and there but nothing like the crazy quantity that were on the bedding to start with.
I had a look through the frequently asked questions on the Vamoosh website and noticed it said it can also be used on some regular bedding. I was on a roll so I decided to give it a go on my duvet cover I took off a couple of days ago, Poppy spent a couple of evenings sleeping on my bed so it is caked in pet hair, this usually leads to a washing machine full of fur too. I’ve just taken the bedding out of the washer and that too has come out with a lot less hair on it, it’s an absolute revelation!
Like most people, I usually wash my laundry on an eco-friendly setting but Vamoosh requires a hot wash in order to break down the pet hair. This is why it can only be used on some regular bedding that can withstand the high temperatures, so before you bung your expensive bedding in, check it’ll withstand temperatures of 85-95 degrees! Mine came out absolutely fine so I am glad I gave it a go.
The lovely people at Vamoosh are still looking to find ways of developing a product that works at a lower temperature in order to be more environmentally friendly. Having said that, this isn’t a product that needs to be used regularly and it doesn’t contain any harmful or toxic chemicals so I am happy to use it once in a while when Poppy is moutling.
I’ve done a bit of research online and reviews seem mixed but I am really impressed with it. It seems that Mrs Hinch is big fan too so if it’s good enough for her and Henry, then it’s good enough for me and Poppy!
