When I was younger, heavy petting meant one thing. Now it means petting my hounds – a lot. Their soft, short hair, combined with the sleekness of their build, makes petting them seductive. Seductive to lower blood pressure and just more happiness in general through touch. As our hounds’ guardians we can insure their skin stays soft and sleek.
What goes in, shows up on the outside. Oils and fats are necessary for good skin and coat. Oils can be given at any age, but they help particularly with new dogs, ill dogs and older dogs. I’ve found Grizzly Salmon Oil and Organic Coconut Oil magical in keeping those coats soft and silky.
