Four secrets of champion show dogs

show-dogThe  135 annual Westminster Dog show started this week. Over 2,500 of our furry friends entered the competition this year. There are some secrets that champion dog owners do in preparation for this event.

  • Show dogs train constantly throughout the year just like athletes. This could mean some workouts on the treadmill or running along side a bicycle.
  • The short haired breeds get a dab of baby oil on their nails and tips of their noses to make them shine.
  • Most dogs have dry feet and to prevent them from slipping during the show, their owners spray soda on their pads.
  • Mousse is used on the dogs hair with even a little hair spray to keep their mane in perfect style.

After all of this fuss and pampering I think our little friends deserve lots of dog toys and dog treats after all some of them are making lots of money for their owners!
