Pamper your Pet
Pet pampering and grooming is now big business; Australians are believed to spend almost $12 billion a year keeping their family favourites groomed and pampered.
How can we resist the beautiful shampoos, soaps and perfume sprays? We all want our pets to not only look their best but smell their best too.
Pet grooming will often entail a thorough shampoo and conditioning treatment, haircut and blow dry and finished off with a spray of some delectably lovely pet friendly scent.
We are all eager to ensure we use the best possible products on our pets, this has seen a huge growth in natural products.
Products you can feel happy will leave your pet not only smelling delicious but they are perfectly safe for your furry friend too.
