So at Hair of the Dog we have been getting our Spring clean on. Rest assured that we use dog friendly products to disinfect the salon and keep our clipper blades and brushes squeaky clean. Whilst I wouldn’t suggest eating your dinner from anyone’s floor, I’m pretty confident that the filtered water in the dog’s bowls is clean as a whistle.
We have a new security fence as well as the internal gate to keep your pooches safe and relaxed whilst in our care and look forward to planting dog friendly flowers in our garden area.
So what’s new for Spring?
Well having had a love affair with Red+Ginger products for sometime, we have become proud stockists of the canine fashion designer’s stylish unique pieces, so much so that they have designed a Spring Collection just for us. Ideal for dog Mums, human Mums on Mother’s Day and for dandy dog owners who do their darnest to keep on trend. Zero waste products lovingly made into harnesses leads and collars and we said YES to small, medium and large sizes. Fashion in the dog park just got fierce. Bring your doggo in for a collar lead or harness fitting.
We also have some beautiful Harris Tweed items by Herbert&Maisie as well a some unusual and funky fully machine washable bed mats and memory foam beds.
Appointments: We’re getting busy. It’s Spring and it’s shedding season. Call 07539605752 on the hot- doggy- hotline to book a Spring makeover or just a bath and blow dry to keep your pooch pristine between cuts.

We are checking out cute canine coats, Winter knits and vegan cosmetic dog products. Vegan coats available online or for keen knitters we are going to take a peek at Winter woolies that will be sure to get you reaching for the needles. ( You don’t need a dog to knit, you could start knitting for shelter dogs. ) For those of us who are more Crufts than Crafts we will explore the latest in high end sustainable dog accessories.
We believe fully in a species appropriate diet for dogs, my dogs eat a complete raw meat diet and thrive on it, from Bella& Duke www.bellaandduke.com.
However if you are weighed down by last year’s consumption and excesses we are going to look at the best sustainable canine clothes, how to be waste savvy when shopping for your pooch. Zap your dogs mind with brain stimulating games that can be set- up or upcycled at home.
We know our dogs are washed with organic dog products at the salon, but can we find luxe vegan dog shampoos and conditioners that work well between trips to the groomer? ( We all have days when we have dunk and dry our dogs at home, even if it does block drain!)
We will look at which clothing item look best on different dogs in our section- Does my mutt look big in this?
Buying sustainable, ethically-sourced accessories that contain no animal products and produce minimum waste. The gauntlet has been thrown down.
