Pam­per­ing for pooches

Coastal News - - News -

Whanga­mata pet own­ers got the chance last week­end to pam­per their pooch with pet ac­ces­sories for the beach life­style.

Dog ban­dan­nas with a pur­pose are the cre­ations of an­i­mal lover Shin­neal van Kam­pen, who was at Whanga­mata Lions Craft Mar­ket on Satur­day sell­ing her cus­tom ac­ces­sories for the pooch who al­most has it all.

The ban­dan­nas were a hit with furry lo­cals like C J (pic­tured) and work by drop­ping your dog’s tem­per­a­ture by 3-4 per cent when worn wet.

Shin­neal — who sells un­der the name “4ur­paws” — says a few drops of laven­der oil on the ban­danna will help calm the nerves, while eu­ca­lyp­tus oil helps clear the nose.

The Lions of­fered “paw park­ing” for pooches and the luck­i­est of four-legged friends got treated by their own­ers to a sausage from the Lions’ stall, which was busy from open­ing un­til 2pm. All proceeds are used by the lo­cal char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion for a good cause.
