Phoenix, AZ, June 17, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- If your company is hosting a Bring Your Dog to Work Day event on June 26, you want to show up with your dog’s best paws forward.
This fun pet holiday will generate lots of cute and even outrageous pictures. These tips will help you and your pooch prep for the big day so your best friend will be a standout for photo shoots and enjoy a warm reception from your colleagues.
Tip 1: Grooming: DIY or the Salon?
Start at the foundation. A well-groomed dog, complete with a bath and a trim, will help your dog look his or her best from nose to tail. And no one can resist a shiny coat! No time or skill to do it at home? A quick trip to your local groomer will do all that and more.
Tip 2: Style Your Dog with Color, Sparkle and Bling
Give coworkers something to talk about! Add style to your dog’s runway-ready cleanliness. Check out Soft Claws® (www.softclaws.com). They’re flexible vinyl nail caps that come in a huge selection of colors, color combinations and new sparkle shades which glisten in the sunlight. There are sizes for small to large dogs. In case your pup likes to scratch, these nail caps will ensure that no damage befalls your coworkers or their belongings. Your boss will also be pleased that no scratches will come to the furniture either. Soft Claws were invented by a veterinarian. Pets hardly know they are wearing them...and wouldn’t bold colored nails make a fashion statement! Your groomer can also suggest a selection of bandanas and bows from basic to super bling so you can add even more fun fashion to the festivities ahead.
Tip 3: No doggie breath here!
Take a whiff of your dog’s breath. A foul mouth odor can detract from any dog’s finest appearance. A dog’s bad breath should be taken as a warning sign of developing, potentially serious, conditions.
Many pet parents don’t realize the impact of oral health on their pet’s overall health. Besides unpleasant doggie breath, the absence of regular brushing creates harmful bacteria that can enter a pet’s bloodstream. Infection or damage to kidneys, lungs, heart and liver can result. Alcohol-free and taste-free oral cleansers such as PlaqClnz® (www.plaqclnz.com) help guard against tooth and gum decay. With its easy spray or gel application, the pet’s mouth is freshened including his or her breath. Ask your groomer about products and techniques you can use to keep your pet’s mouth healthy.
Ready for Your Closeup
Now that your fur kid looks and smells wonderful, you’re uber ready to strike poses and make some memories. And you’ll be confident your pet is a fashion standout and welcomed by all.
