A New Way to Groom at Home #CHIforDogs

This post is sponsored by Fetch for Pets and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about CHI for Dogs but ruckustheeskie.com only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.

We've all had one of those days. Yes...bad hair days. You know what I'm talking about: you wake up, disoriented, and head to school or work without thinking twice. Next thing you know, you've got the bedhead that would hold no water against a tidal wave!

What about your puppy? Maybe they don't have to worry about going to work or school, but they still need to look their best when out for their daily walk! It's tough and sometimes expensive to get them out to the groomers often, so taking care of brushing, washing, and cleaning are nice to be able to do at home. For the big jobs, definitely look into taking them to a professional groomer. Ruckus just visited one recently and lost all his fluff! It was his first time going to the dog salon since we have been doing home-grooming. After 4 years, the humans are finally tired and reached out for professional help. Who would have imagined that it would take a full 5 hours to attack this cotton-ball?! Lesson learned--a daily brush a day keeps the mats away!

Now, there's dog grooming with a little human twist. CHI® for Dogs is now available with shampoos, conditioners, brushes, nail clippers, and more. Yes, this is the same CHI you know from human hair styling products like their flat iron. Now our grooming supplies match. I hope we don't mix our tools up! You can purchase a wide variety of CHI grooming products by visiting PetSmart.

Even Ruckus is having a good ol' time with the Chi combo slicker and pin brush. It works well on his double coat. He tends to shed all year long and ever since his first grooming experience, we are trying hard to keep him as mat-free as possible. We have met American Eskimos with missing permanent patches of fur due to poor care of the thick double fur coat.

Now where else do you suggest we take Ruckus to show off his new slick fur-do? He's already been to the outdoor shopping outlets and dog-friendly stores. It helps to distract the sales rep with a fluffy dog while you sneak away and shop in peace!

  1. Fascinating. Our double coat dogs get a brushing with an undercoat rake. The slickers don't do them any good. I never thought to take the flat iron to their coats. ;)

  2. We're fortunate we don't need all those tools to be groomed. Actually, Jan is fortunate since she would be the one to use them on us. But you always look lovely.

  7. Keeping those fur matt's down is so impawtant! We are also trying to do more of the grooming at home; going to the groomers is expensive & time consuming. This looks like a wonderful product line & Ruckus looks gorgeous!
    Love & biscuits,

  8. Ruckus! You are looking just beautiful!! We can tell how happy you are by that wonderful smile!! We are checking out the CHI products right now too and absolutely LOVE them!! You don't have to tell us about the double coat...we are well aware of the matting issue. Mama tries hard to keep us mat-free...but it is difficult! We have a new CHI comb that is really a huge help in getting the tangles out of the undercoat! Now...how about heading to the mall to do some shopping??

  10. The level of grooming a dog requires will vary depending on the breed. Some breeds have easier grooming requirements than others, and there are some that require careful consideration and a lot of time to be groomed. Please keep in mind that grooming not just refers to the fancy shaving and trimming of fur, it also covers the overall hygiene of dogs, including all body parts from the eyes to the nails. ee more here about dogs groom http://dogsaholic.com/care/how-to-groom-a-dog.html

  12. What really sets a home projector apart from a TV is the fact that a it can project an image onto a wall or screen that is up to two hundred inches when measured from top left corner to bottom right corner across the diagonal..
