Affordable DIY dog spa day ideas

1. Bubbly Bliss: Start with a luxurious bath using gentle dog shampoo. Wash away dirt and amuse your pup with some under-chin tickles, then rinse for a squeaky-clean coat. Need shampoo advice? We’ve got you covered!

2. Pawsome Pampering: Treat your pup to a paw-dicure! Clip nails gently with pet clippers, avoiding the quick. Finish with paw balm for soft, happy paws. Nervous about clipping? Book a nail trim with our vet nurses at Travel Vet.

3. Furry Mess to Fabulous: Brushing isn’t just for tangles! Invest in a brush suited to your dog’s fur type and gently brush from root to tip, giving extra love to any mats. Bonding time and a shiny coat – win-win!

4. Relaxing Massage: Help your pup unwind with a massage. Use gentle, circular motions, paying attention to areas that may be tight or sore. They’ll love the touch and feel relaxed.

5. Yummy Rewards: No spa day is complete without treats! Give your pup their favourites or whip up something special. Just remember, healthy choices are best.

6. Zen Den Time: After all that pampering, create a calm space for your pup to relax. Soft lights, calming music, and cosy blankets are perfect for a post-spa nap!
