Canine Essentials - Every dog needs this stuff!
Every dog needs to be safe, well-fed, well-groomed and loved!
The variety in dogs is vast - size, shape, temperament, fuzz factor, barkiness, sociability - all vary widely. There are a few things, though, that all canines have in common. So, here's some stuff every dog needs!
Most of these essentials are not only for appearance, but for health reasons, too. Clean, healthy dogs shouldn't have any "doggy odor" - not from their fur, mouth, or ears! As with people, we're discovering more every day that teeth are a good indicator of health status and the importance of cleaning a dog's teeth. At Golly Gear we have what you need to keep your dog in tip-top shape!
A regular grooming regimen only takes a few minutes a day and should be part of every dog-owner's routine. Your dog (and you!) will love the results!
