Scrub A Dub Dub!

Woo Hoo!  End of August/ beginning of September means fewer clippings and baths of the dog variety in our household.  Instead of every few weeks, we now cut back to every other month or so.  Of course we do maintenance trims and clean ups when we find matted fur or the occasional mud pile, but the full on shave down and outside baths under the hose will now be put on hold until next spring.  Murray (and I) are pretty excited about the break!  It's no easy task for he and I!  We did however discover a wonderful little tool for bath time this year that I have to share...a bath scrub brush for dogs!  Now I realize these have probably been around a long while, but in my mind, I didn't see the point of using a brush instead of my hands to scrub him up.  Well, for dogs with dry, itchy skin issues, there is a huge benefit!  Murray has always had allergy skin that much of the time gets dry, flaky and even from time to time a bit inflamed.  At the recommendation of our vet, we purchased a rubber brush specifically for dog baths.  Not only does he LOVE the feeling of the gentle scrubbing on his skin while I'm working the shampoo in, (which makes bath time much easier) but it has helped keep his skin clearer too!  It sloughs off the dead, dried up skin and really helps clean everything up!  With each bath this summer his skin was looking healthier and healthier.  Finally a brushing tool he doesn't run from!

  3. Hi Y'all!

    BOL! That's like the horses', curry comb! I have a rubber brush my Human uses on me too, but it has longer rubber tips that are further apart. I love my bathes and body massages!

    Y'all come by now,

  5. We are getting groomed Wednesday and it will probably be quite awhile before we get clipped again. I have a date on Saturday so I gotta look good.

    Your Pals,

  6. That looks like a great scrubbing brush! Mommy bought the Zoom Groom but it doesn't work very well with my long fur. It tends to pull out a lot of my fur making it very unpleasant for me.
