You’re invited to a tail-wagger of a party!

Posted by: Best Friends

Canine alert:  mark your calendar for June 2-3!  We’ll be giving away doggy ice cream and cookies at every Best Friends Pet Care center across the county that weekend… and it’s free!

Bring your parents, too; they could win a trip for four to Walt Disney World® Resort or some other cool prizes.  We’re celebrating Best Friends Pet Care’s 20th anniversary  (that’s older than me!) and Best Friends wants to say “thank you” to all the pets and people who’ve helped make the company a success – and maybe make some new friends, too.

Spring Shedding Alert: No Need for Hair Everywhere

Posted by: Best Friends

One of the most frequent questions groomers are asked by pet owners at this time of year is how to “prevent” their pet from shedding.

Unfortunately, shedding is a part of the natural cycle of hair growth:  after each growing stage, there is a resting period when the old hair falls out. Hair is lost all year round, but the heaviest shedding is in the spring when double-coated breeds lose their dense undercoats. Depending on the type of fur, weekly, even daily, brushing is needed, to remove the hair as it sheds.

How to Help your Dog Beat the Wintertime Blues

Posted by: Best Friends

The winter months can be tough on the family dog.  Just like us, pets can suffer from the cabin fever.

Of course, the best thing for us and our best friends is to bundle up and go for a walk or a romp in the park. But, with short days and cold nights, many of us don’t want to spend time outdoors. So, The Dog Dish asked some of our Best Friends Pet Care professional trainers for suggestions on how to help the family pet beat the winter time blues.

Get Your Pet Ready For Holiday Guests

Posted by: Best Friends

‘Tis the season to deck the halls, but how can you keep the house looking its best when there are pets in the family?

No amount of scrubbing, spraying or even cookie baking will make your home smell great if there’s a stinky pet in the house. Only a pre-holiday grooming session will help.
