How To Get Your Puppy Looking Gorgeous

Start By Accessorizing

When you bring home your new puppy you’ll definitely need a number of different accessories like dog collars, food bowls, grooming tools, puppy toys, and items like a travel carrier or a dog harness or dog booster seat for your car. Also remember a nice and comfortable bed for your puppy too. Something warm and cozy or cool and aerated, depending on the weather where you live, will make all the difference to your dog’s happiness – and yours too.

Most pet stores are stacked with dog accessories and it can become quite overwhelming if you’ve never had a dog before. It is of comfort to do a little research on the net before you go shopping. You might even like to purchase items online. Just one word of warning if you do purchase on the net. Read the customer reviews for the store and item and be sure you are purchasing a high quality item since you won’t want your dog choking on a rhinestone off their collar or a plastic shard breaking off a dog toy. It is also very important to read the information about sizes of items for your pet dog. If you are buying accessories like collars or coats for you dog you really need to ensure it will fit in the correct manner.

Remember, when you are choosing dog accessories, you don’t need to get everything at once. Lots of things will develop as your puppy grows bigger and there will be different requirements for an adult size dog. Do a bit of research and then find what you need but don’t go shopping crazy on your first pet store visit with over-accessorizing.

Dog Grooming

You can find a cheaper way by grooming your dog yourself. If your pooch is a long-haired breed you’ll need a special grooming kit containing tools like combs, brushes, clippers etc. It is not difficult to learn the best way to groom a dog and it helps you to form a closer relationship with your puppy and form a long and adoring relationship spending one-on-one time with him.

Also remember, grooming is not only about perfect fur but it is also imperative for keeping claws shorter and stopping danger from scratching with claws that are overdue for a trim. Of course you can get great grooming advice from your favorite dog grooming business provider or the local veterinarian.


In case you haven’t thought about it yet, it is well worth putting your mind to what sort of identification you want for your puppy. You can help make your dog look attractive with a color-coordinated collar and dog tag or multiple different collars and name tags for different days of the week.

Without hesitation the easiest and most simple sort of identification for your puppy is a tag on the collar with your phone number and email address or other means of contacting you. Although, these days some localities make compulsory micro-chipping as a non-negotiatiable requirement for dog registration. There is also the option of getting your dog tattooed with important contact details so they can be identified. I can’t say this will benefit your dog in the beauty stakes because it would mostly be unseen. The most appropriate professional to advise you about these issues is your local professional vet who should be familiar with the laws in your locality and who can also advise you on the procedure or technique necessary for each type of identification technique.
