Are you tired of the same grooming routine for your furry companion? Well, get ready to add a new level of luxury to your dog’s spa day with the latest trend in pet pampering: the blueberry facial! That’s right; you heard it correctly – a facial treatment made specifically for your furry friend using the power of blueberries and oatmeal. This canine cosmetic craze is taking the pet world by storm, and it’s not hard to see why.
But what exactly is a blueberry facial for dogs, and why is it so popular? Let’s dive in and explore the ins and outs of this amazing pet pampering experience to help you decide if it’s the right addition to your pup’s grooming routine.
What is a Blueberry Dog Facial?
A blueberry facial is a cosmetic treatment that involves applying a unique facial scrub made with natural ingredients, including blueberries, coconut oil, or oatmeal, to a dog’s face. This treatment is designed to cleanse and exfoliate the skin, removing stains, dirt, grime, and dead skin cells while providing a relaxing and therapeutic experience for the dog.
Blueberries are known for their antioxidant properties and are believed to be beneficial for the skin. We offer this treatment as part of a full grooming package, but we can also do it as a standalone service.
The session can take 15 to 20 minutes and involves gently massaging the scrub into your pup’s fur and face. Afterward, we’ll thoroughly rinse off the applied scrub and pat your pup dry with a soft towel.
Giving your pet a good deep-coat wash and brush before using the Blueberry solution is preferable, as the natural calming scents will help your pet relax and enjoy the rest of the grooming session. After that, our staff will provide a pleasant head massage using a circular motion all over the face area to aid the solution’s absorption.
Reasons to Try a Blueberry & Oatmeal Facial For Your Dog
Simple yet powerful! If we were to find other words to describe the blueberry facial for dogs, it would have to be nourishing, hydrating, and refreshing. As part of this service, your pup will enjoy a deep cleanse and exfoliation of the skin on their face, leaving it smooth and refreshed without irritating the eyes.
So let’s take a look at some of the amazing benefits it provides:
- Cleansing and exfoliating action to remove dirt, grime, and dead skin cells:
- Antioxidant properties to help slow down the aging process:
- Moisturization to keep the skin soft and hydrated
- Soothing and calming effect for a more relaxed pet
- Refreshing aroma to help your pup feel pampered
- Aromatherapy benefits to help reduce stress and anxiety
The grooming facial employs a rotating technique of circular movement, so your dog will feel the massage and begin to associate this part of the routine with pleasure. Dogs are known to be creatures of habit, so when they associate this part of grooming with something positive, it will make the process much easier for them.
Here at Hound Therapy, we understand that the key to having a stress-free grooming session is to make it as enjoyable and pleasant as possible. We make your pet’s comfort and safety our priority, which is why we are constantly introducing and incorporating new techniques in our grooming services.
The Process Of A Blueberry Facial For Dogs
We know you’re excited to learn what the entire experience of a blueberry facial looks like, and so are we! As a pet parent, one of your main goals is to ensure that your pup stays happy and healthy, so our team will always take the utmost care when performing any treatment. When you come to Hound Therapy for a treat-yo-self session for your pup, here is what you can expect:
1. Welcoming your dog
For a successful grooming session, a dog needs to be relaxed and comfortable. At Hound Therapy, we will spend time getting to know your pup and building a rapport with them before beginning the treatment. We also enquire whether your pup has a history of skin issues or allergies to help avoid any possible discomfort that might arise.
2. Supplies Preparation
We believe in providing the highest quality grooming service; hence all supplies and products used are of premium grade. Our supplies include specially formulated blueberries, which are thoroughly mixed with organic ingredients like honey, olive, and coconut oil. Other supplies, such as the scrubbing glove, basin for the solution, and soft towel, are all prepared in advance.
3. Pre-Scrub Treatment
We will carefully evaluate your pup’s coat and skin condition, paying particular attention to any scalp or facial issues that may benefit from the blueberry scrub. We then proceed to thoroughly brush and comb through their coat to remove any dirt or tangles. We use a gentle, dog-safe cleanser to clean the dog’s face before applying the facial scrub.
4. Blueberry Facial
Once your pup is comfortable, we apply the blueberry scrub by gently massaging it over their face and scalp. We use a circular motion to work the scrub around the face area, allowing it to penetrate deeper into the skin. Our staffs are highly experienced in this treatment and have the necessary knowledge to ensure that your pup’s eyes, nose, and ears remain unaffected. We then leave the scrub on for a few minutes to allow it to do its work.
5. Rinse & Dry
We then rinse off the scrub with warm water and a soft towel, making sure to remove all traces of the product. We also use a dog-safe cleanser to remove any dirt and oil that may have been loosened up during the massage.
The blueberry facial not only cleanses and exfoliates the skin but also helps to moisturize and nourish it. After the facial, we apply a nourishing moisturizer that is specifically formulated for dogs. This helps to refresh and protect their skin while restoring its natural balance.
7. The Finishing Touch
Finally, we brush and comb their coat, making sure to give your pup a nice and shiny look. You will love the results as your pup walks out feeling refreshed, relaxed, and looking fabulous! Our staff will ensure that your pup goes out with an air of contentment, knowing they have been pampered to the highest level.
At Hound Therapy, we strive to make your pet’s grooming experience a pleasant one. We understand that grooming can be a stressful experience for some pets; thus, we take extra special care to ensure their safety and comfort are our priorities.
