Kelly Osbourne and PetSmart Canada Partner to Help Pets Strut their Style
Famous Fashionista dishes the latest grooming trends for pets with Pet
TORONTO, April 23, 2014 /CNW/ - She's got an eye for furry fashion trends.
Television show host, actress and sought-after fashion designer Kelly Osbourne
is spotting trends for PetSmart Canada(®) and its new line of creative
grooming services, Pet Expressions. Designed for pets with personality, the
new, temporary, pet-safe chalking, stenciling and feathering services in the
PetSmart salon give dogs of all shapes and sizes a mega dose of style and glam.

Whether keeping up with trends or creating an individual, seasonal look, Pet
Expressions helps dogs and their parents share fun, fashion-forward moments
together. No one knows that better than Osbourne, who is a pet parent to
Willy, Story and Sidney.
"I'm known for holding nothing back when it comes to my style and my opinion,
and I love extending that critical eye to fashion for my three beloved dogs,"
Osbourne said. "Each of my dogs has its own personality, and PetSmart's Pet
Expressions helps them stand out and steal the spotlight."

The Hot and Not So Hot in Pet Grooming
Not only does grooming look good, it helps pets stay healthy, too. Osbourne
shares the "hot or not" tips and trends she's learned while working with
PetSmart grooming experts.
-- Party-Ready Colors: Pet Expressionsprovides temporary,
non-toxic, creative ways to coordinate looks using temporary
color accents and accessories. Try team colors or holiday
-- A Special Touch: Whether it's a trendy feather or pet-safe nail
polish, give people a little something extra to talk about!
-- Coats That Shine: Brushing removes dead hair, stimulates the
skin and evenly distributes natural oils. The result?
Individual hairs lie more smoothly, look shinier and repel
dirt. That's in!
-- So Fresh and Clean: Baths keep dogs smelling fresh and skin
clean for those close party encounters. Dirty skin can cause
dogs to scratch and lick - a party faux pas!
-- Pampered Pups: A full PetSmart grooming service goes nose to
tail, addressing areas like ears, glands and pads that can be
overlooked. Spoiling a pet never felt so good!
What's Not Hot?
-- Matted Fur: Not only are mats painful, but they can cause skin
diseases or parasites. To reduce these chances, brush on a
regular basis to remove loose hair and keep the skin clean.
-- Unkempt Nails: Too-long of nails can become irritating and
painful to a dog. They can also cause the feet to splay or
spread, and nails might curl and grow into a dog's pads.
-- Dry Skin: Bathing or grooming too much can dry out dogs' skin.
Follow guidelines by your specific dog's breed or check with a
PetSmart grooming expert.
-- Bad Breath: Dental hygiene is a must - 80 percent of domestic
dogs three years and older are affected by gum infections,
which can be prevented with regular teeth cleaning at your vet.
Keep that smile healthy!
"Grooming is essential to a pet's health and happiness, and Pet Expressions

(@ServicesVP_Anne), PetSmart's vice president of services. "Kelly's eye for
style and love of dogs make her the perfect partner to share Pet Expressions'
fun and fabulous grooming options with pet parents and their dogs."
