Dierks Bentley and his dog Jake

Dierks Bentley and his dog JakeThis morning when I was out with Kobi, we met Jake, Dierks Bentley’s dog. Jake was with his handler, who was super nice. They flew in to be on The View tomorrow. I wish I had my iPhone with me to take a photo, but alas, all I had was a leash and poop bags. Jake was super cute and very patriotic wearing his American flag bandana. Jake has a beautiful coat and was so well mannered! His handler mentioned that Jake was super lucky because he got a proper seat on the plane ride to NYC – typically a dog of that size would be too big as airline cabin requirements only allow dogs that are 20 lbs or less. Jake was having fun walking around the streets of NYC, but searching for some grass to do his “business”. Totally understandable as he’s a country dog. I told them they would have better luck going a bit more south to Battery Park.

Hope you can all tune in to see Jake and Dierks on The View, Friday July 25th. Apparently, Margaret Cho guest co-hosts with “Guy Day Friday” guest co-host and musical guest Dierks Bentley!  It’s The View’s 5th annual “Mutt Show” sponsored by Pedigree, featuring viewers’ mutts and adoptable mutts from the ASPCA.

 

 

Great Dog Shampoo and Conditioner – Isle of Dogs

isle of dogsAre you looking for great dog shampoo? Well look no further. Isle of Dogs is one of the absolutely best brands out there!
Isle of Dogs was founded by two passionate champion-dog breeders. They created a canine grooming system that recognizes and addresses each dog’s uniqueness. Their grooming system is a complete coat and skin system based on two natural raw materials, Evening Primrose Oil and Royal Jelly. It provides dogs with a comprehensive coat and skin care offering. Their products are all made in the U.S.

Isle of Dogs has high standards and create natural products with high concentrations of:
– Plant-derived Antioxidants
– Renewable, sustainable, or organic Botanicals
– Wildcrafted, organic, or ethically harvested Essential Oils
dog shampoo– Minerals, Vitamins, and Essential Fatty Acids

Their products contain none of these:
– Parabens

– Synthetic Fragrances or Dyes

They are very attentive to treating your dogs unique needs. They have found that before you can properly treat/groom a dog, you must first take into account crucial characteristics. Any specific dog will fall into a category formed by numerous variables: one of over 165 breeds, four genders (including spayed and neutered), coat textures and colors, a few age groups, and a variety of lifestyles. Each one of them will have different grooming needs, so identifying and addressing these individual traits is no trivial matter. The Isle of Dogs system recognizes the complexity of your dog’s coat and skin, prescribing perfectly matched products that take a holistic approach. They use a combination of shampoo, conditioner, sprays, and coat supplements to maximize your dog’s health and beauty from the inside out.

For example, they have a new dog shampoo which is fragrance free and features a safe and natural repellent, and effectively removes and repels fleas and ticks.

One of our favorite products is “2 heal” conditioner. It’s a deep-penetrating conditioner specifically formulated to moisturize, protect, prevent breakage and add shine. Your dog’s coat will be noticeably softer, smoother and more manageable.
