Tried & Tested: Precious Pets Luxury Dog Shampoo

Precious-Pets.jpg

If truth be told, we’re not big on dog grooming. It’s not that we’re too posh to wash it’s just that our resident hound Basil Barkarama is a low maintenance kind of guy. However, when we caught whiff of a dog shampoo, which has received the royal paws up, Basil soon found himself in hot water  …

For Her & For Fur: Aesop Washes

Aesop-for-her-and-fur.jpg

I was first introduced to skincare brand Aesop by a friend when my winter hands were in desperate need of hydration. From the depths of her oversized handbag, she promptly produced the most nourishing, sweet-smelling hand cream I’ve ever used and believe me my hands get v. bad in winter. Their botanically based skin, hair and body products for him and her include high-quality plant-based ingredients and non-botanical elements such as anti-oxidants so it’s packed with the good stuff. Most excitingly Aesop now produces an Animal Wash, a mild skin and fur wash, which gently cleanses and deodorises their coat leaving them smelling fresh with a mix of mint and citrus notes. For you, try their A Rose By Any Other Name Body Cleanser, a beautifully fragrant formulation containing skin-softening botanical extracts and Rose Petal oil.

Today we take you through how we’ve ended toilet-gate.

Tried & Tested: Behavioural Therapy & Dog Training for Toileting Issues Part 1

Basil-training-feature.jpg

Dear canine community, we have a confession to make. Being a good (and most importantly firm) pet parent is not a skill that came naturally to us and until just a few months ago, our own little ten-month-old treasure/terror was not a shining example of a well-trained dog. Sure we grew up with dogs, carrying out daily duties such as feeding and walking but nothing quite prepares you for your own dog, one that you are wholly responsible for 24:7 and who’s behaviour is a product of your creation.

New Buy: Puppy Bumpers for Your Dog's Safety

Puppy-bumper.jpg

At Barkarama HQ, we’re partial to pet products with novelty factor, which is why these puppy bumpers first grabbed our attention. However, should your dog have escapologist tendencies, seizing any opportunity to escape through the gate or under the fence then these donut-looking collars are a bit of a godsend.
