Lovely Fresh: I Love my Dog Shampoo #Review #ILoveMyDogShampoo

IMAG1897

I got a chance to try something that seasonally, anywhere but in Southern California, would have been impossible. See, our little pooch? Let’s be honest. Sometimes, she gets a little funky. And if there’s one thing she hates (besides the outdoors, car travel, cheap kibble, and expensive toys), it’s bath time. Sure, she’ll do it, because she gets to snuggle and play afterwards, and then get a good brushin’, which is tantamount to a full body massage for her. So she “suffers” through the former to thoroughly enjoy the latter!

But in the peak of Fall? Luckily we got (yet another) bout of freakishly hot weather, which means we got to test out I Love My Dog Shampoo by Lovely Fresh. We’ve tried more than a few pooch shampoos (even one or two human ones too!) on our little girl. Some are too perfume-ey, some too drying, some with promises no shampoo could ever hope to deliver.

I Love My Dog shampoo by Lovely Fresh makes a few boasts, like it being formulated to make your pet’s skin and coat beautiful and healthy, from roots to tips, promoting overall wellness of skin and coat, removing bacteria and adding strength and shine. It also says it’s “vet recommended”, but what vet and where it doesn’t say. It also claims to leave a lasting fresh scent, but truthfully, I can’t say this was the case. While it did banish her “poochy” scent for a little while, it came back the next afternoon. Next up, was the natural ingredient claim, with oatmeal and neem. It also says it’s soap, detergent, and alcohol, but will still work up a rich lather. Again, the product fell short in that last portion, as I found myself having to use more and more product to get any foamy goodness going. As an aside, the instructions say to let the shampoo sit on her coat for 5 minutes. I had no luck getting our dog to hold still for 2 minutes while she’s wet and foamy(ish), let alone 5 minutes. Poor girl even gave me that look like what are you waiting for! Your mileage may vary here. With a satisfaction guarantee, it’s really your call if you want to pay return shipping if your results are not up to snuff.

Overall, I’d have to say there are probably better products you could use that cost the same or less. Like people, every dog is different, and what might not be great for our girl might be fantastic for yours. There’s really no way to know but to try. I’d have to mark this one as a “pass” for us. But again, with a satisfaction guarantee, it never hurts to try.

Klout Perk: Science Diet Grain Free Food for Dogs, plus More #WinwithHills

IMG_20140312_160900

Klout not only rewards their members but also their pets. Our mutt received a great perk package filled with lots of goodies, courtesy of Science Diet. The kit was packed with a bag of the Adult Grain Free dry dog food, a dog rope toy shaped like a frisbee, and a collar charm that lit up. It’s like Science Diet and Klout knew our dog’s birthday was in March!!

I can say the Grain Free food was welcomed by our pup and she made sure to cherry pick the Science Diet food out of her bowl first, before eating the “with grain” feed we formerly had. I figured it was good exercise as it took her a good hour to nose her food to get to the Science Diet kibble. The Grain free formula is packed with many benefits so it goes beyond our dog just enjoying the meal:

  • Prebiotics are added and this aids with nutrient absorption and digestive health. The source listed is beet pulp, which also adds fiber.
  • Owners have reported a radiant and lustrous skin & coat on their dogs courtesy of the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Flax seed is the source listed on the package.
  • The protein listed is high quality chicken, which also supports a healthy heart. You also have cranberry, plus vitamins E and C for immune system support.
  • The Grain-free feed is all natural ingredients with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
