Best Indoor Dogs

Today, I’m gonna give you some info about best indoor dogs.

.

.

1. Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkies dislike cold weather and they are tiny puppy as you know.

.

.

They are popular worldwide because of their good personality.

.

.

2. Pomeranian

Pomes are small like Yorkie, so people who live in small apartment prefer Pomes.

.

.

But you have to take care of their coat well!

.

.

3. Poodle

Poodles are very smart and love people very much.

.

.

In KimsKennel, we have Silver Poodle and Apricot Poodle.

Silver Poodle is very unique, so Poodle manias are looking for Silver thesedays in Korea.

.

.

4. Maltese

I guess Maltese is most popular for a long time.

.

.

They are not active and have lovely personality! 

I think there is no one who hates Maltese.

2017SS Uniqlo x Lemaire = Uniqlo U 

Have you ever heard about Uniqlo U collection? 

Uniqlo U collection is made by a former Hermes director Christopher Lemaire and Uniqlo Paris R&D team. 

Uniqlo is very well known for its simple basics at very reasonable price. 

But some people may get bored with its too simple styles. 

For those who looking for simple designswith stylish touches at low prices, Uniqlo U collection is a gift box from the heaven. 


What I most liked about Uniqlo U 17ss collection was its simple but luxurious colors. 

4 main colors of this collection are olive, beige, khaki, and indigo blue. 

Among them, my favorite color is olive and indigo blue, so I picked couple items from each color group.


First one is a pair of indigo blue color Uniqlo U denim jeans.

Their cut is a bit funny – wide hip and thigh, tapered and cropped hem. 


Next item is olive color coach jacket. 

This jacket is my most favorite one from Uniqlo U 17ss collection. 

It looks very simple but crunch nylon material in emerald olive color gives its look more stylish.

There are lot more things that I am planning to purchase later.

So if you like Uniqlo U collection, do not hesitate because you won’t have enough time for this limited collaboration collection from Uniqlo and Christopher Lemaire.

How to Groom Your Poodle As Fluffy As Cotton Candy in 35 Seconds


Today, I would like to share my video showing how to groom your fluffy Poodle puppy properly!

Cute Bella of KimsKennel US was modeled in this video. 

Preparations: a facial comb, a body comb, and a slicker

​​

Steps:

1. Comb her facial hair with facial comb. Be gentle and do not rush. Facial hair gets tangled often, so it is very important to comb her face well with facial comb.

If your puppy has lots of tears, then look at my older post about how to take care of tearstains: 

2. Brush body hair with slicker. Remember that you have to brush her from the tail to the head, reverse direction. One important tip on slicker brushing is to use slicker parallel to her body. 

3. Finish grooming with Body comb. Start with wide side first and then to use narrow side. Very important tip to make your puppy fluffy is to use snap! 

Hope you enjoy the video, and it may help you to make your puppy fluffy as cotton candy

I have been looking for a new pair of glasses for so long but have not able to find any good pair.

I am not a picky but want something that has distinctive feature.

There were many other styles of glasses, but a pair that caught my attention was one with wooden temple with acetate face.

I did not know from which brand they were manufactured but was able to find out it was Sagawafujii, well known handmade wooden eyewear brand name.

Two very different materials, acetate and wood, gave its distinctive look more special.

handmade wooden temples look luxurious at the same time shiny and bold acetate face gives chic impression.

Sagawafujii’s handmade wooden eyewear comes with a nice looking amber wooden case.

The reason why I have chose those glasses was that they were very light, have cool looking, and distinctive wooden material.

And the most important thing about eyewear is how comfortable they are on your face.

How to Take Care of Puppy with Tear Stain

bichon_frise_tear_stain_ringo

I have a beautiful Bichon Frise girl named Ringo meaning an apple in Japanese.

She has beautiful big eyes, pearly white curly coat, and very cute personality.

Everything sound perfect!

However, only problem with her is tear stain all over her face.

maltese_girl_momo

Tear stain is usually seen with those puppies with white coat and big eyes mostly – white Poodle, Maltese, Bichon Frise, and etc.

There are many causes, but the most important cause is its own pigmentation.

Those puppies with tear pigmentation are likely to have darker tear stain.

Tear stain is also caused by bacterial colonization on wet area around eyes.

5 most affecting factors in tear stain are:

  1. Stress
  2. Intensive exercise/hotness
  3. Food allergy
  4. foreign materials – dusts, eye lashes
  5. Ear infection

bichon_frise_girl_viviana

The best way to avoid or treat tear stain is to dry wet hair well.

However, it is almost impossible that we dry our puppies eyes all day.

So here are some tips that will weaken or prevent tear stains.

  1. Applying baby power directly to wet area
  2. Feeding tear stain medicine (ex. Sparkle Eyes)
  3. Operation – lacrimal canaliculus

I know it is not easy once your dog get tear stain.

But never give up and bring his/her pretty clean face back!!

We go together!!

Truth about Teacup Puppies

teacup_puppies

Have you ever heard about teacup puppies before?

Teacup puppies that you may know are often times fake.

In America, small puppies, so called teacup puppies, are very popular nowdays.

Teacup means smaller than the standard size.

teacup-maltese-kims-kennel

In America, as I know, many resellers are importing and selling teacup puppies from Korean breeders because Korean teacup puppies are well known for its tiny size and beautiful face.

Selling Korean teacup puppies is not a problem.

Real problem is that many resellers do not give true information about teacup puppies to their customers.

good_example_of_teacup_puppy

Teacup puppies are tiny, I mean they are smaller than their standards.

Some people may believe that adult teacup puppies may weigh around 2lbs (1kg) mostly, but it happens not very often.

Teacup puppies may weigh less than 2 or 2.5lbs only if they have suffered canine distemper, get fed smaller amounts of food, or were born weak. Other than those reasons, it may not happen.

adult_teacup_puppies

Real teacup puppies are healthy and beautiful as you can see in the picture above.

They are fed proper amount of food, born in healthy condition, and grow as pretty as they can be.
