London based pet salon The Yuppy Puppy has recently introduced a new service for their pampered clientelle – Mud wraps! Generally mud + dogs is a lot of fun but not considered a “spa therapy”. The Yuppy Puppy has secured Avaha’s highest grade mineral clay for these fine canines. The clay is harvested from the banks of the Dead Sea and is scientifically proven to be essential in maintaining healthy hair, skin and most importantly, joints. The Dead Sea clay has the highest concentration of bromide, magnesium, calcium, silica, sodium, and potassium of any natural body of salt water and mud in the world.
The “Avaha Spa Treatment” starts with you dog being covered in mineral clay. The clay is worked into the hair and down to the skin to impart all of the mineral benefits.
The dog is then loosely wrapped in heat foil to warm the mud and keep them comfy. Your pooch relaxes for 45 minutes as the mud does it’s magic. Unfortunately the spa doesn’t offer magazines or champagne to pass the time while your pup marinates. Afterwards they gently rinse your pet’s coat and skin until all of the clay has been removed and finish with a fluff dry. Most of the Yuppy Puppy clients take a much needed nap at this point in the treatment.
The Avaha Mud Wrap Treament costs $100 USD (60 GBP) and is only available at the Yuppy Puppy in London.
PUPSTYLE GLAM SQUAD SUMMER FASHION TIP
During the summer it’s so hot, and not always the best idea to dress up your dog in clothes unless it’s cooling vest or a lightweight accessory. I am always on the hunt for fun, safe & creative ways to play with dog fashion without overheating my pooch.
One fun solution is to experiment with dog hair gel! Let your dog channel his or her inner rock-star with a cute pointy faux-hawk. Smoosh a dab of Clear Hair Gel in your hands and then sculpt your pup’s hair. Your dog will be fist pumping at the Jersey Shore in no time!
Or let your inner hair colorist loose with some Top Performance Hair Dye Gel! NOTE a little goes a long way – dab some color on the ears and tail et Voila you have a four-legged masterpiece!
Top Performance the makers of this product say it safe to use on dog and cats over 12 weeks old (yes I said the “c” word). The hair gels are completely NON TOXIC and CTFA approved.
In our house dog hair is considered a condiment. It’s pretty hard to avoid the occasional hair on your dinner plate when you live with 3 shedding dogs. Pet hair on your furniture is not only unstylish, but a health hazard for allergy sufferers.
The quickest way to remove pet hair from furniture is to use a vacuum with an upholstery attachment to suck up loose hair and allergy-causing dander.
But what if you could suck up the loose hair before it ends up on the couch?
The Dyson Groom tool is designed with this problem in mind. The substantial brush and vacuum unit attaches to the hose and removes loose hair and dead skin with slick bristles – and with the press of a button, fur and allergens are loosened from the brush bristles and are sucked into the vacuum and contained in the bin. With regular brushing, you’ll save time on cleaning your furniture and your pet will look beautiful!
If your vacuum doesn’t have an upholstery attachment, a lint brush or sticky tape roller is a tried and true method for picking up stuck-on pet hair. For leather furniture, I suggest wiping it down with a lint-free cloth moistened with one part white vinegar and two parts water and then wipe the leather dry with a soft dry cloth.
With the advent of pet ownership throughout China – the weird dog grooming trends are coming fast and furious! These lovely dogs have been groomed to the point of changing species! With China’s terrible “one family, one dog” policy limiting owners to only one dog – we guess family’s are putting all of their “PupStylistic” eggs in one basket.
