It might sound counterintuitive, but washing your dog too often could be the cause of its odor issues.
When you wash your dog too frequently with harsh shampoos, you can disrupt the skin barrier, resulting in a dull, dry and stinky coat.
So what do you do? You wash it again. And the cycle continues leaving your dog smelling worse and you wasting more time trying to get them clean.
But what if you reduced your washing?
HOW IT WORKS
Scaling back on baths, while brushing your dog daily and using a leave-in conditioner as a moisturizer, will help reset the skin barrier, which allows the natural skin oils to protect the skin and coat like they’re supposed to.
A pack of 100% compostable bamboo wipes that are pH balanced for your dog’s coat. Perfect for cleaning and freshening the skin and coat in between baths, and extending the time in between washing.
A moisturizer for the skin and coat, which helps protect the skin barrier. It keeps your dog’s skin and coat soft and protected.
User after rinsing, wiping or washing. Suitable for damp or dry coats.
A water-based natural scent to reduce unwanted dog smells.
With calming lavender and other fancy sounding things, this natural, moisturising scent makes ‘smelling like a dog’ the ultimate compliment.
Removing loose hairs and debris, while helping spread the natural oils of the coat.It also reduces and prevents knots and tangles. Brushing your dog daily is one of the best things you can do to prevent dog odor.
Delicious distraction during bath time, brushing and grooming. Smear it with a small amount of their favorite soft food or spread, and the suction cups will secure the mat in place while you groom your dog.
“Use our cream conditioner during a soap-free bath. Brush coat first. Wet the coat, massage in Leave in Conditioner cream, rinse off. Follow with a small amount of extra Leave in Conditioner cream or Leave in Conditioner, and then gentle blow dry with a thorough brush.”
