Dogs are known as man’s best friend. They never leave your side, and they don’t seem to change much as they age, unlike some people. Dog owners find comfort in this everlasting loyalty and companionship. I mean, what’s better than knowing that your dog is always going to be there for you, to keep you company and soothe you when times get rough?
Your dog makes you happy. The question is, how long has it been since you made your dog happy?
A happy dog makes for a happier dog owner. The better you treat your pet, the more loyal your furry best friend will be. If you think it's about time for a little puppy pick-me-up, here are seven tips for keeping your dog as yap-yap-happy as can be.
Small Gestures to Show You Care
Sure, you feed your dog and rub him behind the ears when you get home from work. But when is the last time you took your dog to the park and let him run around? When did you last engage your dog with a nice bath and brush down?
The fact is, pets have feelings, just like we do. And just like us, any form of affection you show sticks in your dog’s mind; and stays there. It could be a nod from you, a pat behind the ears, or a thorough rubdown every now and again, but these gestures go a long way. The more gestures you give, the more loved your dog will feel.
Let Your Dog Run Free (At Least Occasionally)
Your dog comes from a long line of canines who ran free in the wild, and those genes never actually went away. Your dog has inherited, just like every other dog today, the urges to run and roam free. The problem is that most neighborhoods don’t take kindly to free- roaming dogs.
If you live in a community where your dog is required to remain indoors all day long, your dog will most certainly be affected. You may not even realize why your dog is suddenly so cranky, depressed or even destructive. If only your dog could open his mouth and shout, “I need to go for a good run RIGHT NOW!”
The remedy for keeping your dog joyful (and playful) is to take your FBF into the backyard. Or go for a walk or run around the block. The exercise will do you good, your dog will enjoy being outdoors like his ancestors were used to, and you’ll have on your hands one happy and healthy pet.
Make Time for Play
Apart from playing outdoors, most dogs love to play, period. The more time you schedule for playtime, the more satisfied your dog will feel. I know, you lead an extremely busy lifestyle where every moment is accounted for. Between the kids, housework and your downtime, you don’t have time to play an entire game with your dog. Or do you?
All it takes is three-to-five minutes to throw a ball from one end of the room to the other so your dog can fetch. Get a length of rope and tug-of-war with your dog till you’re both ready to fall over. A minute here, a few minutes there, all of these times add up. Playtime is love time, and your dog will surely enjoy every minute he gets to spend with you.
Regular Vet Visits
Your dog needs regular check-ups just like we do. Your FBF also requires vaccines to keep infections and diseases at bay. A healthy pet is a happy pet, always remember that. If your dog hasn’t been to the vet for some time, call your local pet doctor and schedule an appointment. It never hurts to get your dog examined. Your vet may even be able to offer up a few ‘dog happiness tips’ not found here.
Keep your Dog Groomed
Grooming is a natural part of your dog’s makeup. When your dog starts licking his hind-quarters for hours on end, that's a grooming habit. All that licking and lapping helps to make your dog feel more comfortable.
While self-grooming can help your dog maintain a smooth and shiny coat, a tongue bath does very little to keep ticks and fleas at bay.
Self-grooming also doesn’t smell very good, especially when it’s been months since your dog’s last bath.
To keep your pet smelling good and feeling comfortable, and happy as can be, give your dog a paw in the grooming department. A professional dog groom doesn’t have to be expensive, but it can have immense benefits on your dog’s quality of life.
At Live.Love.Pet! we take things a step further than the typical 'bath and clipper' dog groom. We focus on your dog’s relaxation and total health. With vitamin-and-lavender infused blankets, dim lighting, and a grooming background that resembles the great outdoors your dog loves; your pet will feel like he's suddenly been whisked away to doggy heaven.
A thorough body massage will ensure that your dog is fully relaxed, and a full inspection by one of our certified groomers will check for growths or abnormalities that your vet may have missed. This careful attention is paid to your pet before the grooming process and all the way throughout.
By the end of your dog’s appointment, your FBF will feel like you do when you walk out of the spa – fully relaxed and ready to sing Happy by Pharrell Williams. That’s how your dog will feel, and what a way to show your little furry buddy just how much you care.
To schedule your dog’s Spaw Day appointment, call (808) 734-8282. Or fill out our pre-groom form, and we’ll call you.
Want to keep your dog happy? A professional groom by Live.Love.Pet! is in your buddy’s near future. Mahalo! From all of us at Live.Love.Pet! we can’t wait to meet you and your furry best friend.
Why a Spaw for My Pet?
Our pets may be animals, but they have feelings, just like we do. They can tell when you want them to behave, when you want them to go away, and they can even sense when you are happy or sad. They even miss you when you’re not around. This means that, in many ways, our pets are just like us.
And just like you might like to visit the spa to get treated from head to toe, your pet might appreciate the same treatment. Imagine if there was a spa designed for your pet. There is, and it’s known as Live.Love.Pet! in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The Pet Spaw Has Your Pet in Mind First and Foremost
Live.Love.Pet! is centered solely on the overall well-being of your pet. We don’t just bathe them; we love them! We care for their nails, teeth, coat; you name it. From nose to tail, we make your pet feel right at home. In fact, our groomers don’t just do this for the money, they love the furry buddies you put in our care, and they love what they do!
Pets Can Also Get Stressed Out
We center our care around the philosophy that pets should never be scared of the pet spaw. Using various pet-centric relaxation techniques, we’re able to help Tabby or Rosco relax while in the groomer’s care. If your pet is nervous, scared or otherwise anxious, we have just the (drug-free) tricks to help your furry friend calm down.
Keep Your Buddy Clean, Happy and Healthy
When you get your pet back, your furry buddy will have had a bath, a fur-cut and a massage all over. This has several benefits. First, your pet will welcome being groomed in the future by us. Bringing him or her in next time won’t be such a chore.
Next, our certified pet groomers are trained to look for such ailments as skin cancer. In fact, we can often catch things you or the vet might miss.
Lastly, a well-groomed pet won’t get germs or dirt on the bed or living room sofa. This keeps the house clean and smelling fresh, which contributes to your happiness and well-being as well.
Letting us groom and care for your pet also saves you time, because you don’t have to do it yourself. So why not give your dog or cat a treat every month by visiting Live.Love.Pet!
We’ll make it easy.
Call us at (808) 734-8282 or fill out our pre-groom form, and we’ll call you!
Losing loved ones is a part of life and, unfortunately, there isn't much we can do about it. That doesn’t stop us from hurting. It doesn’t prevent us from missing them and thinking about the things they did to make us laugh, cry; or when they helped us through toughest of situations. And then there are those times when your pet merely kept you company and made you feel truly special.
So what do you do? How do you move on? Will you ever get over it? What will you say to the kids? Will they understand? Is the house going to be the same without “Skipper” or “Daisy” or “Hulk” taking up room on the couch?
It’s Okay to Cry
The truth is, you can move on. It’s not always easy, but you can do it if you know what to do. It’s okay to sit around and mope for a few days or even weeks; however long it takes you to come to terms with your loss.
Adopting is an Option, but Be Wary
If you want get over the loss of a pet quickly, you could save another from a pet shelter. The bond you share with your new best friend may fill the void, but it will never fill the void completely. At least you’ll have the love of a new furry animal to keep you company at night, when you might feel the most grief.
However, make sure you consider adopting very carefully and don’t move too fast. It might not be healthy because you might tend to expect from that pet what you expected from your previous pet. This may result in you comparing the two, which may cause you even more grief and undo amounts of stress.
Take It One Day At A Time
Like every tough situation in life, take it slow. Time heals. Think about some people that you may have lost in the past and how painful it right after, but then consider that it’s much easier to talk about it now. Time heals all wounds. Feeling hurt right now is normal, but it will pass soon.
Console yourself and your kids with all the fun times you had with your pet. Remember with fondness your little buddy’s personality and know that your FBF wouldn’t want you grieving. As a final note, there is nothing wrong with needing to talk to someone about the loss of your pet. If you need to see a Therapist and talk about how you feel, do it. Do anything it takes to help you cope with the loss of your pet. Just know that things will get better.
At Live.Love.Pet! we’ve had to deal with a few pet losses recently, and it’s a subject no one likes to discuss. Just know that we love the pets you let us care for just as much as you do. When you lose your pets, it hurts us just as much. We’re always here for you and your furry buddy, in life and afterwards. If you ever want to talk about your pet, or discuss anything pet related, we’re always here. Mahalo!

You have a lot of choices when it comes to grooming your pet. You can do the job yourself. Of course you could also plumb your home yourself. Or repair the light fixtures in your home. In fact, you can do everything yourself that a professional can do. The question is if you’ll do the job well. There’s a reason we call a plumber when our pipes have sprung a leak. There’s a reason we call an electrician when the outlets spark. And there are three big reasons we call a certified pet groomer when we want our pets groomed.
Those reasons are:
Quality Control Through Certified Training
The fact is, anyone can call themselves a pet groomer. Watch a few YouTube videos, buy the equipment and anyone can set up a pet grooming salon. But not everyone will do a good job, as we’ve already established.
A certified groomer is trained in the art of pet grooming. And a certified pet groomer knows where your dog’s sensitive spots are, and how to deal with ornery pooches and kitties.
A groomer who has achieved the proper level of schooling and has the credentials hanging on the wall (or at least ready to show you) knows how to properly bathe your cat and trim the fur on his head without being turned into a scratch-post.
And only a certified groomer can return your pet to you smelling terrific and looking his best every single time.
Take your pet to just any old groomer and you never know what you’re gonna get. Your pet could get shaved one visit and the hair could be left long the next. Your cat could experience an embarrassing bald spot if the groomer isn’t properly trained in pet grooming.
If you want your pet groomer to do a good job, always ask about certification and demand to see a certificate from a qualified school. A legitimate groomer will be happy to show you any certificates you wish to see.
Your Pet’s Safety
Another good reason to only seek out the most qualified of groomers is because your pet may be unsafe in an unqualified groomer’s hands.
Before you decide on a grooming salon for your beloved best friend, you might want to call the salon to inquire about their hiring habits. Weigh the responses you receive carefully and only choose the grooming salon that provides the most satisfying information.
The fact is, there are no regulations on groomers as of yet in the United States, so anyone can technically call him or herself a groomer. But if you love your pet, if you want your pet to have a great experience and if you want the very best results, you should only choose to bring your pet to a certified grooming salon like Live.Love.Pet!
Krystal and the other groomers at Live.Love.Pet! are trained and certified from the best pet stylist schools in the world. They are also experienced in the art of treating your pet with care, of providing your pet with the best styles and fur-cuts, and they’re very skilled in dealing with the moodiest cats and dogs.
Call Live.Love.Pet! today at (808) 734-8282 or walk-in to 1126 12th Avenue #103, Honolulu, HI (96816) and show your pet just how much you care. One of our certified groomers is standing by to hear from you.
As a pet owner, you have a responsibility to ensure that your best friend remains happy and healthy well into old age. That’s why we always recommend regular pet grooming. After all, a well-groomed pet is a happy and healthy one. But there’s another reason that regular grooming just makes sense. Your groomer will be spending quality time with your furry best friend, massaging, bathing, scissoring and clipping, and we can often catch things that you might miss. What can we catch? Signs of cancer, of course. No one likes to think about their pets getting cancer, but it never hurts to pay close attention for the signs. Here are the top ten warning signs of cancer in pets that we always look for, and you should also for the longevity and life-quality of your beloved animal friend.
Notice how with all of these symptoms, cancer might be the culprit. Only your vet can make that diagnosis. If you notice any of the above or even if you’re just curious about your pet, don’t delay. Schedule an appointment with your vet right away. But whatever you do, make sure you schedule an appointment with Live.Love.Pet! so that we can pamper your pet and look out for any of the above. We love your pet just as you do and want only the best for your furry best friend. Call (808) 734-8282 today and the best is precisely what you’ll get during your best friend’s spaw day.
Ah, the new year, a time for resurgence and growth. It’s also a great time to start thinking about your pet, and how you can take better care of him or her. Sure, you may buy all the latest toys and treats, but what about dog grooming (or cat grooming)? If you think you don’t need to groom your pet, or you figure a bath or two a few weeks apart will do the trick, think again. Your pet is dying for you to utter those five beautiful words, “Let’s go to the groomers!” Why not make ‘15 the year you finally give into your pet’s wishes?
A New Hairdo for a Special Pet
All will take is a single appointment for you to wonder why you didn’t opt for pet grooming sooner. Not only will your pet come back smelling terrific, but every inch of your pet will have been tended to. But mostly, your pet will shine because of the new hairdo (or furdo, as the case may be).
But there’s another reason you should get your pet groomed that’s a tad more selfish. It’s for the very reason that your pet will stay around longer. That’s right. Having your pet groomed can extend the life of your dog or cat! That should be reason alone to pick up the phone to schedule your next grooming appointment.
How to Schedule a Grooming Appointment
If you want to get your year (and your pet’s year) started off right, pick up the phone and call Oahu’s own Live.Love.Pet! at (808) 734-8282 or walk-in anytime during business hours to 1126 12th Avenue #103, Honolulu, HI 96816. Or, if you want us to give you a call, head on over to fill out our pre-groom form.
However you wish to get a hold of us, we will always be there for you and your pet. Whether your pet needs a bath, a full groom or an entire pampering Spaw Day, we’ve got you covered. Our service is thorough, affordable and you’ll instantly find yourself at the top of your pet’s list.
If you want to see your pet truly happy at the start of 2015, schedule an appointment at Live.Love.Pet! today and watch that tail wag. Mahalo!
We love when our clients take the time out to leave us raving testimonials (well, their owners do. Our clients can’t read and write, or at least we don’t think they can :)) Our latest testimonial comes from one of our best clients, Chad G.
Good morning Miss Krystal! So sorry for the late email as my caregiver duties have kept me busy lately.
You have done an amazing, excellent and outstanding job on my little Lulu Gaga! That's what I call her now. You nailed that cut! She is so happy, spry and aerodynamically fast. Her stamina has increased as well since she no longer has to carry that wicked load of fur.
You do great work and everyone should know about this. I have been spreading the word by way of the old "coconut wireless" system, but a larger audience could be reached electronically. So if you wish to, please use Lulu's picture and even the second paragraph of this email to get the word out and boost your client list. I mean what I say and would like to help you out to return the favor. Lulu and I could not be more happy with your services. Even my family is in awe of how much love and attention to detail that you put into your work as well as your openness to clients suggestions. The before and after pics are a nice touch too!
Thank you so much again for all you do for us! You help to improve on Gods work.
Much Aloha to you and your staff,
- Chad G and family
Thank you so much, Chad, for leaving that great testimonial. We look forward to seeing Lulu again real soon. We’ll keep a table open just for her.
To all of our other prized clients, we urge you to visit our Review Us/Testimonials page to leave your own raving reviews. Or you can email us at email@example.com. We always go out of our way to show our clients just how much we care about them (and their owners, too). So if you have recently made an appointment and you thought we did a good job, won’t you take a moment to tell us how great we did? We really appreciate it. Your satisfaction is the reason we do what we do, and the fact that we love animals so very much.
A special thank you to Chad and to all our other clients for making Live.Love.Pet! the best pet grooming salon on Oahu.
January first is almost upon us, and that means that most of us will be planning to quit smoking, lose weight, make more money, start exercising more, stop cheating on our taxes, or whatever the case may be. But don’t forget about your pet! Your pet should have New Year’s resolutions, too, and you can help. The best one to choose for your pet is to keep your pet groomed all year long. Live.Love.Pet! can help.
How Often Should You Get Your Pet Groomed?
At Live.Love.Pet!, Hawaii’s only ‘zen’ pet grooming salon and boutique, we recommend that you get your pet groomed every six weeks. That’s just long enough to keep your pet looking and smelling great. But there are other benefits, too. Here are a few more.
We Remember Your Pet the More You Bring Him/Her In
When you schedule regular pet grooming appointments, our groomers get to know your pet. We get to know mannerisms, preferences and we also remember the type of style you like. This means that you and your pet can expect to experience the same high-quality pet grooming experience again and again.
Whether you require dog grooming, cat grooming or puppy or kitten grooming, we’ll always give your pet the most relaxing and best fur cut imaginable (and of course there will be plenty of kisses and treats afterwards).
