  • Try These Fun Exercises With Your Dog for National Pet Month

    Try These Fun Exercises With Your Dog for National Pet Month

    National Pet Month is here, so why not show appreciation for your pup by taking them out for some unique and amusing exercises to get their muscles moving and their tails wagging. 

    It is estimated that 1 in 3 dogs are overweight, so it’s important that we make sure our four-legged friends are getting the exercise they need for a healthy and happy life.

    Walking your dog provides a great workout and helps socialise your dog, but there are plenty of unusual sports that you can participate in with your pooch to change things up. 

    Taking your dog for a swim to show off their doggie paddle skills, for example, is a fun way to get your dog playing outdoors. 

    Have you ever tried canine freestyle? This activity combines a mixture of obedience training, tricks and dance, allowing for a fun and lively interaction between you and your dog.

    Even indoor activities like playing tug-of-war can count towards your pups daily fitness.

    If you have any doubts about how much exercise your dog needs and which workouts are right for them, always consult a vet or dog care specialist.

    And be sure to check out Sainsbury’s Bank guide for creative outdoor and indoor exercises to try with your dog.

  • Working Together to Help the Environment

    WildWash Refill-site

    We are so pleased so many of our stockists have embraced our Refill Centre idea.

    Moorland Paws in Devon is another of our Refill Sites, where you can bring in your old WildWash Pro Bottle and refill it for only £9.95 instead of the RRP of £14.95 for a new bottle.

    This is a great saving for our WildWash customers and it means that we are reusing our plastic bottles and not wasting them.

    Our aim is to have these Refill sites all over the UK. If you do have one in your area, we would be so grateful if you can use this service. The more demand for a refill service the more sites will open!!!

    Let’s work together to help cut down on waste plastic and help save our environment.

    To see if there is a WildWash refill site near you please go to:

    All WildWash products are made in a boutique apothecary in the UK. They have the same sustainability and environmental beliefs as us and are actively pursuing wind and solar power being the energy that produces all of our products. We will obviously keep you posted when we manage to achieve this. Yay!
