Doggie Dental Care

Dental Hygiene is very important for your pups. We understand that keeping up with brushing your pups teeth isn’t always easy, especially if they don’t particularly enjoy the process. We are guilty of being a bit to lax with this ourselves even though Oshie loves it..well he loves the toothpaste that is.

So why is it so important to brush a dogs teeth? Here is a short list of the benefits.

  1. Regular brushing will help prevent tartar, plaque and calculus build-up.
  2. Brushing helps prevent gingivitis and gum disease.
  3. It is a great opportunity to check your pups mouth for any problems. (broken teeth and etc.)
  4. You get to spend more time bonding with your dog 🙂

Periodontal disease (gum disease in dogs) is commonly seen when a dogs reach three years of age. Left untreated this infection can result in heart, kidney and liver problems for your pup. Dogs can also be in a significant amount of pain due to dental problems like abscessed teeth and you would never know it because they don’t shows signs of pain like we do.

So remember to regularly brush your pups teeth to keep them happy, healthy and free from pain.  Also have your vet check your pups teeth during regular check-ups. (Usually included in a check-up)

If your pup doesn’t enjoy having their teeth brushed as much as Oshie (see video below), you might need to start of slowly. Use your finger at first instead of a brush. Allow them to get used to it and eventually work your way to a brush. Also try to make it fun and use a doggie toothpaste that they like. If all else fails, consult your pups Vet.

Oshie Loves Getting Pampered

Oshie loves rolling around in the grass. It is probably one of his favorite things to do outside. Of course when we had the dusting of snow a week ago he couldn’t help but roll in it. The result was a wet and muddy Golden who needed a bath.  So after his bath Oshie was ready for a little pampering.

Due to the crazy amount of fur that Oshie has, air drying can take a long time so we usually speed the process up using Nancy’s hair dryer. We take this opportunity to get a thorough check of his body for any abnormalities and to get a good brushing done. Using the dryer also helps prevent wet hair from tangling and matting in places like his armpits. Here is a short video of Oshie completely enjoying the salon experience.

You Can ignore the video intro. The VLOG is has already been posted 🙂

Golden Retrievers Love Watermelon

North Carolina winters can be pretty wild. One day it will be in teens all day and threatening to snow and the next day it will feel like summer. Then there are the days where the temperature starts off as freezing and by the afternoon it is in the 60’s and 70’s. I love a mild winter as much as the next person but the huge swings in temperature from day to day (and even in the same day) are really annoying.

Enough complaining. Yesterday we saw temps in the high 70’s and low 80’s. The sun was shining and it was gorgeous outside. It almost felt like a summer day. So we decided to enjoy the weather and sit outside with Oshie. We even had some Watermelon to help complete the dreams of summer. I think Oshie knew that we were going to give him some because he was whining before we even had a chance to set the plate on the table and sit down. So you guessed it…here comes another video of Oshie.  Below is a short video of Oshie scarfing down two pieces of Watermelon while wearing his goofy propeller hat. Prepare yourself for the cuteness. As always enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
