Here is my very very dirty dog. Here is my dog that loves to roll in dirt, dig up my plants, and attack every muddle puddle he sees. Here is my dog who hates getting a bath…Even in the warm lovely bathroom he hates it…our bathroom ended up being muddy mess last time… soooo for his most recent bath we decided to do it outside being that it is so warm out and it might just seem like a cooling swim like experience…hmmm…no.
I had the privilege of trying out a few John Paul Pet Products ( yes, THAT John Paul ) and was super excited to test them out immediately! We took the little booger outside, I brushed him out and collected some of the hair he is shedding ( that dog packs on SO much over the winter, it takes me using the grooming mitten & brush on him for forever through the summer ) and then used the Full Body and Paw wipes they sent to give him a good head start ( that guy was DIRTY! ) Here is how they explain the product on their webpage ( I know technically these are for between baths, but I really just wanted to test them out! ) :” Full Body & Paw Wipes that are designed to help keep your dog clean, fresh smelling and moisturized in between his or her baths. These Wipes are enriched with lanolin to replenish your dog’s coat. Full Body & Paw Wipes are ideal for dealing with sensitive skin, and they are pre-moistened which allows them to be soft and gentle while cleaning delicate areas such as between the toes and around the tail. “
He seemed to enjoy being brushed down and especially loved the wipes! He was so digging all the extra attention and rubs he was getting 😉 Such a silly little doggie, that Jake is! 😀 But seriously, I loved the wipes, they worked so well and will be awesome for me to use during the in between times so he doesn’t end up being a crazy hot mess like this week! So glad I have discovered these! Yay!
We decided to wash him in an old tub we had stored in our garage, and it actually worked out fairly well! I think he was so shocked to be standing in a storage tub that he stood still and let the bath progress! I really liked the shampoo, it went a really long way surprisingly ( he has SUPER thick hair! ) The shampoo smelled nice, and I REALLY appreciate that the collection they sent me was Tea Tree! I absolutely love tea trea! (For literally like everything! )Their website describes their shampoo like this : “Formulated with natural Australian Tea Tree oil, this shampoo uses an environmentally safe and very effective formula that is designed to soothe skin and help cool hot spots that may affect your dog! ” I also love tea tree because it’s a natural bug repellant! YAY! I find that super fantastic, because the bugs around our yard seem to be horrible this year! Overall I was really delighted with this shampoo, it smelled nice, and worked well, and like I said I was delighted that they sent me the tea tree pack! 😀
Next we moved on to the drying off, treats and conditioning tea tree spray! 😀 I absolutely loved the spray as well, it smelled good, and worked very well! He is so soft and fluffy now, it’s so amazing compared to the brissley hobo dog that I had a few hours ago! I love it! Here is how their website describes the conditioner : Leave-in conditioner soothes, cools and conditions sensitive skin and hot spots with Australian Tea Tree oil
So it turns out bath day didn’t end up going so bad…maybe a little crazy 😉 but having some nice products to work with helped out a lot! Our boy is clean, smells good and is good until he meets his next mud puddle, or flower bed 😉 Thank you John Paul Pet for sending me this fantastic pack, we love it! I would also like to throw in there that we absolutely adore the fact that these products are NOT tested on animals! 😀
