Frugal PON Care
Make an inexpensive dog toy instead of replacing pricey toys: Drill a hole through a tennis ball, which is large enough to put a rope through. Thread a 6-8 foot rope through the two holes, and tie knots as close to the ball as possible. Then make a loop with the remaining rope, and tie a knot. PONS love to play tug and toss !
Tip: Did you know that adding a little sage to your PON's diet may help keep fleas off him? (fleas hate the scent of sage)
All natural, homemade flea dip: Boil a quart of water; remove from heat and add 2 cups fresh rosemary and/or mint and let it steep for about 30 minutes. After straining the herbs, dilute with 4 quarts of warm water. Pour it over your PON, working it into his coat and skin. This is extremely refreshing !
Dry skin relief: A low cost home remedy for your PON's dry skin is chamomile tea. Just brew a few cups, allow it to cool, and pour it over your PON, working it gently into his skin. Not only is it soothing, but it won't leave any oily residue.
Low-Cost Herbal Dog Shampoo: You can make an excellent and inexpensive herbal dog shampoo from ingredients that you probably already have around the house. Simply dilute a handful of Aloe Vera gel with water and work it into your PON's coat (it's best if your PON's coat is dry!), then rinse well with water. If you like a little more foaming action, add a touch of baby shampoo to the recipe. This shampoo is very mild on your PON's skin and will leave his coat gleaming!
