In the fall, every walk with the dog becomes a challenge. Sometimes pets are so smeared in dirt that they have to sweat before washing them. How to solve the problem and maintain the perfect appearance of the pet?
Autumn is beautiful, but it also has a downside. For example, slush, precipitation, spray from passing cars and puddles. All this turns a walk with a dog into a real obstacle course.

As a result, the dog smudges the apartment, and sometimes due to moisture an unpleasant smell of a dog is formed.
