We’ve noticed that we’ve been talking a lot about dogs on the blog lately (since our chief blog writer got a new puppy ) and whilst most of our pet grooming products are popular with dog owners, we also sell lots of items to people that own cats and other small furry animals too – in fact any pets that need a good wash, a brush or a blow dry.

A growing number of people are also wearing face coverings in other public spaces - such as parks and high streets - in order to protect themselves and others from spreading coronavirus. Whilst this is great for preventing the pandemic, some dogs may feel anxious or afraid if they see someone wearing a face mask and they may need you help to understand that everything is OK.  Mask Photo by Kate...
