Pet Valentine Inspiration, Must Do Doggy Do’s, Collars in This Year’s Hottest Hue, Gucci’s Year of The Dog and More | What’s on Our Radar So Far in 2018

2018 might be Year of The Dog but for me it's also the year of my wedding so how many Barkarama pup-dates I’ll manage this year is TBC, as planning and working hard to pay for it is not without its challenges. That said dogs are always on my radar and Basil shall not be taking a sabbatical from his chief reviewer/roving repawter duties, so here’s what's blowing our fur up so far, this year.

NEW - Tangle Teezer Launches For Dogs

No more sharing yours with them because now you can get Tangle Teezer for dogs – and they are aptly named Pet Teezer.

In case you have been stuck under the salon dryer for the last ten years or so, Tangle Teezer has been detangling barnets with their innovative teeth ever since inventor Shaun Pulfrey was famously rejected for his ‘hair-brained’ idea from TV show Dragon’s Den. The company now sells 20 brushes every minute globally. For my own haircare regime, I can’t live without mine. I have fine hair but lots of it and BTT (Before Tangle Teezer) I used to endure discomfort and damage to my locks when I brushed out knots but when a hairdresser introduced me to this brush of wonder, my relationship with hair (and its condition) has greatly improved.

4 Reasons Your Dog Needs To Be Washing With MALIN+GOETZ Right NOW

Barkarama muse Basil is prone to being high maintenance but when it comes to grooming, he keeps things on the down low. Just a quick wash of his face folds, teeth brush (not often enough – my bad), a rub with the grooming mitt and if he starts to get a stinky, a lock-in in the shower. So with the actual wash being a bit of special occasion we like to make it count. Cue our new find - MALIN+GOETZ Dog Shampoo, as made by the much-loved, global natural skincare and grooming apothecary.

Dog-Friendly Train Travel In Collaboration With Virgin Trains 

Basil boarded his first short commuter train and tube when he was three months old and took it in his stride. We made our first long-distance trip when he was six months on board Virgin Trains and that didn't seem to faze him either – click for cuteness! Now we probably do a couple of train trips per year to see my folks up North.

However, we’ve not done first class together so when Virgin Trains asked us review their service for dog friendliness, needless to say we were all over the opportunity for an upgrade. Better still, we were allowed to bring a couple of mates along for the ride - @winnythecorgi and his dog mum Rachel Oates. So this post is dedicated to dog-friendly travel with Virgin Trains, along with some handy dogs on trains wisdom of my own.

Dog-Friendly Trip To Epping Forest & Butler’s Retreat With Pet Travel Safety Tips From Confused.com

Don't let Basil’s aloof demeanour fool you, there's (slightly) more to him than sauntering around town like he owns the place and pouting for the camera. Off duty he loves nothing more than cutting loose, running like Animal from The Muppets and occasionally (just Victoria Beckham), cracking a smile!
