Celebrating Your Poodle on Their Birthday

Our dogs love us unconditionally, every single day. They are most content simply being with us and bring immeasurable joy to our lives on a regular basis.

Celebrating your red poodle’s birthday can be a special way to show them how much you care for them.

Plus, celebrating your poodle’s birthday is the perfect excuse to spoil them so we are definitely in full support.

Celebrating Your Poodle on their Birthday

Consider Treats and Toys

Your red poodle probably has a lot of toys already, but how many of those toys do they actually play with? Consider getting them something new! Bark Box is made specifically for dogs so they receive unique gifts including toys, treats, and chews each month.

Looking to gift an extra special treat instead? Bake some homemade dog treats! Homemade dog treats are typically healthier compared to store bought treats, so you can feel good about what your poodle is snacking on.

Treat Them to a Spa Day

Continue spoiling your puppy with an extra special bubble bath! A bubble shampoo and conditioner will illuminate their inner royalty and keep them shining for days after.

Is your tub occupied?  Don’t worry! Doggie spas exist all over the United States. From spa baths, brush outs, ear cleaning, self-grooming and more, treat your red poodle to a pamper package you’ll envy!

Give Back to Other Dogs

While your own dog comes first, we can’t forget about the many dogs that likely won’t have their birthday celebrated any time soon.  Visit a local shelter and see how you might be able to donate to the shelter in your dog’s name. Most shelters need treats, toys, food, bath products, and more. Consider collecting donations and gifting them to a shelter in need.

Help Your Poodles Make the Most of Winter

Red Poodle PuppyDon’t let winter get you or your red poodle down! It might be too cold to get outside for an extended amount of time, for both you and your dog, but that doesn’t mean all is lost!

Consider the wintertime a perfect opportunity to bond with your beloved poodle.

Keep Them Moving

It is important to remember that exercise is not exclusively meant for the outdoors. Encourage your red poodle to run around inside as well so you can get a few minutes of exercise in too!  Try adding another friend into the mix and set up a puppy play date!  The more the merrier, especially when it comes to dogs.

If the weather seems reasonable and you do plan to spend some time outside, just keep track of how long you’ve been outside. Consider purchasing boots and a jacket for your poodle to protect them from the elements.

Practice Playfulness

Poodles enjoy all sorts of games, that luckily, can easily be played in side. Games such as hide and seek and tug of war can be played right from the comfort of your own home.  Interactive games will keep their attention sharp and help to improve obedience.  Consider motivating with healthy treats! Poodles love a challenge, especially when they know a reward is waiting for a job well done.

Stay Healthy and Happy

If you’re cooped up inside, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to train your red poodle puppy.  If your puppy is not quite comfortable with dental care, combing, or bathing, work on their tolerance. Get them used to different aspects of grooming, an important part of poodle pet care.

Keeping your poodle healthy and happy is what’s most important.  Looking for a poodle to add into your home? Contact Scarlet’s Fancy Poodles today.

Importance of Brushing Your Poodle’s Hair

Red PoodleAdorable red poodles sport lush, curly hair that contributes to their “wow factor.” Poodles comprise one special breed that demands attention with gorgeous coats and spunky personalities.

However, poodle fur does not stay fresh on its own; brushing your poodle’s hair is vital to both their health and well-being.

Develop a Brushing Routine 

Red poodles sport thick, curly hair requiring much attention and maintenance to keep clean and healthy. When poodles shed, their curly hair traps the loose hair, and the shed hair then develops into mats and tangles. Brushing your poodle every two to three days helps keep their fur mat and tangle free.

Brushing your poodle also lets you check their hair for anything that might be poking their skin, such as dirt or debris. During a brushing session, you can also check for fleas and ticks. Brushing your precious red poodle will keep their fur clean and polished, ensuring they are healthy and happy.

Acquire the Proper Tools

You need the proper tools to thoroughly clean your red poodle’s fur. Start with a slicker brush to tackle mats and tangles and to remove the loose shed hair. Use a bristle brush to brush out the detangled and de-matted hair. You may also need some grooming scissors to remove larger tangles and mats.

Keep an eye on your furry friend while brushing to make sure the brush is not too hard or intense for their skin. If you notice mats developing soon after brushing, you may need to try a new brush that penetrates completely through the coat.

Learn the Common Complications

As playful, happy-go-lucky creatures, poodles enjoy playing outdoors. Long periods of damp, humid weather can lead to matting in your red poodle’s fur. Poodles that get wet and dry without brushing are susceptible to mats. Paying attention to your pup when they come in from the outdoors will help you determine if they need a quick brushing session.

When poodles grow up, their coat changes from puppy to adult texture, going from fine to coarser hair. Brushing your red poodle every day is important for avoiding mats and other fur complications.
