A Pet Head Pup!

It was out of a love for animals that Kyara Mascolo, the original creator of Bed Head hair care products (for humans), was inspired to create an edgy fashion-forward line of pet products. As a result, the husband and wife team, Bruno and Kyara Mascolo, launched Pet Head in 2007. They are also the owners of Toni & Guy and former owners of TiGi Linea Inc so you can be assured, these founders are pros when it comes to hair, style and grooming!

Skin Soothing ShampooPet Head formulas are pH adjusted and free of parabens, petroleum derivatives, propylene glycol, sulfate and DEA. All of their shampoos and sprays are made in the USA. Best of all, Pet Head products smell amazing! They have a full line of shampoos, conditioners, sprays, wipes, paw butter and dog nail polish. They include products which can solve specific issues such as deshedding, sensitive skin or brightening. Check out our Pet Head section in our store to see the different varieties of products!

Spray Shampoo for PetsWe recently tried out the Dogs Luv It Dry Shampoo on our dog.  Kobi, a Havanese, has really fine hair. Typically after we put on his monthly anti tick treatment (we use K9 Advantix II), his hair gets flat and sort of greasy looking in the area we put the application. It’s definitely less fluffy than the rest of his fur. We put the Dogs Luv It Dry Shampoo on this “problem” area and it did fluff it up. It didn’t look freshly washed, but rather stylishly cool and blended well with the rest of his fluffy coat. We’ll definitely keep this in his grooming routine.

Brightening ShampooI even tested out their fast one-coat, easy to use dog nail polish in Fun Purple – ok we didn’t use it on our dog (Kobi’s a boy), but I tried it out on my own toes (in line with the Pet Head claim of “People Tested, Pet Approved”). I’m really hard on nail polish, especially since I run. This polish was easy to apply and dried fast. I think it’s especially handy for taking on vacation, so you can re-apply if it chips and you don’t have to wait long for it to dry.

We definitely recommend Pet Head products!

Blueberry Dog Facials – Only the Best for Your Dog!

Yummy and Lick Safe!

For the pet owner that loves to pamper their pooch, your dog can now get a blueberry dog facial! While this may sound like it’s just a fad, we think it might be here to stay because there really are some great benefits, such as, treating tear stains, improving dry skin and brightening your dog’s coat.

We’ve been hearing about these trendy blueberry dog facials and wanted to learn more. So we sat down with the Salty Paw, where they offer the famous blueberry facial using the original South Bark Blueberry Shampoo, to get the scoop:

 

We’ve heard that blueberry facials for dogs are all the rage. What’s the difference between having a blueberry facial and just cleaning / shampooing your dog’s face?

The difference between a blueberry facial and just cleaning/shampooing your dog’s face is in the product itself. The blueberry facial not only cleans your dog’s face but it has a natural exfoliating activity and is slightly hydrating.

If the product is used like a mask, how long does it need to stay on your dog’s face?
The blueberry facial can be used similar to a mask and you could leave it on for 5 minutes, especially if you need to massage any folds or work on any tear staining.

blueberry dog facialIf you have a dog with light colored hair, is there a chance the hair can be stained blue?
It will not cause any staining of a dog’s coat.

If it’s great for a dog’s face, why not use it as an all over shampoo?
The blueberry facial is also a hypoallergenic, tearless and a lick-safe shampoo. It can be used as a whole body shampoo and brightener, as a special request. White coat dogs can look even brighter when we use this product as a shampoo.

Is the blueberry facial helpful for any specific dog skin issues?
The blueberry facial can help with various skin issues such as dry skin or itchy skin due to the coconut oil and aloe vera in the shampoo.

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
– Plant-derived Proteins, Butters, and Oils

Their products contain none of these:
– Parabens
– Petrochemicals
– Phthalates
– Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate
– 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.

Check out their website (http://www.iodogs.com) to learn more about their products and loads of tips on dog grooming.
