Catching up with Christina

 

In our "Meet the Team" series this week, we caught up with Christina. You all know her as an amazing groomer at the Dog Wash, but you probably didn't know that she's also a World of Warcraft nerd! Here's what she had to say about the grooming biz and life of Cape Cod... 

What's the best part of working in the dog business?

Puppy kisses! Nothing is better than a slobbery kiss from a happy pup.

Funniest (or worst) moment you’ve had while grooming a dog?

Hey Summer, we've missed you!

Hey Summer…we’ve missed you!

Memorial Day Weekend….the unofficial start of summer and all things fun!  We trudge through winter just waiting for this weekend to fire up the grills, open the pools and dust off the beach chairs. Your dog has also been trudging through winter waiting to stretch his legs and romp in the sunshine, right? Make this weekend as fun for him as it is for you. We’ve rounded up 5 great ways to help him celebrate the big weekend!

Hit the Beach While You Still Can

Hit the Beach NOW with your Pup

Knock on wood, but we escaped the New England winter relatively unscathed here on Cape Cod. Apart from a couple of quick storms that blew through, we’ve enjoyed some unusually spring-like temps. That’s been pretty awesome because one of our favorite things about a Cape Cod winter is the opportunity to roam the beaches with our pups.  Sadly, most beaches are “dogs NOT allowed” during the summer months, so it’s wonderful to see them romp in the sand...

A Kat who loves Dogs

Many of you guys know Sam, better known around here as “Kat” or master of the baths at The Digs Dog Wash in Dennis Port.

Well, we are happy to tell you that Kat will be taking on the role of MANAGER of The Dog Wash and Boutique! She’s been a star player on our team since she joined us and we’re...

5 Reasons to Pay Attention to Your Dog’s Dental Health

 

If you think brushing a dog’s teeth is for foo-foo dogs, think again! Vets now know that a dog’s oral health is linked to all sorts of internal body parts. Think of the reasons you brush your teeth twice a day --  to ward off plaque, tarter, tooth aches, unnecessary trips to the dentist and bad breath. Turns out your dog’s choppers need the same attention for the very same reasons. In light of Pet Dental Health Month, we remind you of five good reasons to start brushing and 5 ways to...

Secrets from our Groomers

 



Dogs will take to the world’s biggest stage this week at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. They’ll be perfectly coiffed, perfectly stacked and perfectly styled. But hey, we don’t think you need Westminster creds to be fabulous! We checked in with two of our awesome groomers, Samantha and Amanda, for some show quality grooming tips you can do at home (or at the Dig’s Dog Wash)! Here’s what our seasoned pros had to say:


Their hands down favorite product: The Stuff

No kidding,...

We're Mad for Mud!

 

Hey winter, we have a love/hate relationship with you. While we love a romp in the snow and snuggling by the fire with our humans, we resent what you do to beautiful coats. You strip us of our natural oils and dehydrate our once shiny fur. And we’ve come to know that our parents would much rather snuggle with us when we’re shiny and clean!


That’s right, your dog feels the effects of old man winter as much as you do. Have you noticed his skin getting flaky? His coat looking dull? Just like...
