How To Get Your Dog Show Ready With Red Light Therapy

Show dogs are a special breed that require specific preparation and care in order to compete in shows. The process of getting your dog show ready can be a long and complex one, and it is important to understand the different steps involved.

Step 1:

Getting your dog show ready is to make sure that it is in the best health possible, basically its like Fitness and Body Building Competitions but for dogs (without the tiny costumes and spray tan). This means providing your dog with good nutrition and exercise, as well as regular veterinary check-ups.

Brushing and grooming your dog regularly to keep their coat in good condition is also so important (first impressions, right?).

Introducing Your Dog to Grooming Supplies and getting your dog used to the grooming supplies that you’ll be using. Let them become comfortable with the brush and comb, and practice basic commands like sit and stay while you’re brushing (never forgetting the magic words “who’s a good boi or who’s a good girl?!”).

Bathing and Drying: Bathing your dog with a good quality shampoo and conditioner and making sure to rinse them thoroughly, using a good quality blow dryer to dry your dog (because who doesn’t want to be in a Pantene ad?!). If you don’t have one, you can use a towel to dry them, but make sure to be gentle to avoid damaging the coat (warning: any rigorous drying could set off the zoomies…).

Brush and Comb: Brushing and combing your dog’s coat to make sure it’s free of tangles and knots. It’s important to be gentle and use the right brush or comb for your dog’s coat type.

Trim: Trimming your dog’s nails, ears and feet to get them show-ready. If you’re not confident about trimming these areas, take your dog to a professional groomer to get them done (mani and pedi day here we come!!)

Step 2:

Making sure that your dog knows how to behave when competing in a show, such as basic commands and socializing them with other dogs and people. It is also important to make sure that your dog is familiar with the environment of a show and knows how to react appropriately to distractions (focus, you can do this just foooccuusss, fffooocccuuuss, oh look! Squirrel!!)

Step 3:

Choosing a show class for your dog. Different types of shows may have different rules and regulations that you should become familiar with. You should also research the specific breed standard for the class that you are entering. This will help you to understand what the judges will be looking for and help you to prepare your dog accordingly (you may want to keep this part a secret though, Corgis don’t ever need to know that they are not as big and tall as that Great Dane over there)

Using Red Light Therapy to Get Your Dog Show Ready

Additionally, Red Light Therapy can be an effective and natural way to help get your dog show-ready. Red Light therapy has been used for centuries to help improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote healthy skin and coat.

Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, is a non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the cells of the body to repair and regenerate. It has been used in human medicine for decades to treat a variety of conditions, including pain, inflammation, and skin conditions. Recently, red light therapy has also gained popularity as a treatment for pets, particularly for dogs and cats.

The benefits of red light therapy for pets are numerous. One of the primary benefits is its ability to reduce inflammation and pain. Many pets suffer from chronic pain due to arthritis, joint issues, or injuries, and red light therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for these conditions. It works by penetrating the skin and stimulating the production of mitochondria, the energy-producing structures in cells. This increase in energy can help reduce inflammation and improve circulation, which can lead to reduced pain and improved mobility.

Red light therapy can be used as part of a regular grooming routine to help maintain a healthy coat and skin. It has been shown to stimulate collagen production, which can help to strengthen the skin and improve its overall appearance. It can also help to reduce inflammation and promote healing, making it especially useful for treating any skin irritation or problems.

It has been shown to increase blood flow and oxygenation, which can help to improve muscle strength and endurance. Furthermore, it can also help to reduce inflammation and soreness thus making it an ideal treatment for any muscle or joint problems your dog may be experiencing.

It may not always be so visible or noticeable to us that our dogs are a little nervous on show days, but Red Light Therapy has also been known to have a calming effect on dogs, which may help reduce some stress and anxiety your dog may feel on the day.
