NEW PRODUCT ALERT!! Homemade Dog Shampoo Bars!
The days are finally getting longer, the temperature is rising – sort of! – and the daffodils are bursting from the ground. It can only mean one thing; Spring has sprung! The warm summer days filled with parties and barbeques are almost here, but for dog owners, the contrary nature of spring means one thing – mud, and lots of it.
Admit it, you’ve been there with thinking the ground is drying up, so you put away the wellies and crack out the walking boots. But, once again, mother nature has fooled you and instead, you’re grasping onto a barbed wire fence trying to stay upright as you slip and slide around on a footpath that is more like a muddy ice rink, with your dog looking back at you thinking, “Come on, what’s taking so long?”. Some dogs may enjoy the mud but spring is also the moulting season and this can lead to sore skin and itching.
What better way to treat your best friend after a season of wet, muddy walks and shedding fur than to a nice warm bath to clean out all the debris. At The Zero Shop, we have just bought out our very own range of homemade dog shampoo’s.
Made with olive oil and coconut oil, these shampoos will moisturize your dog’s skin as it washes, soothing any dry or sensitive skin after cold and wet walks. The bars also have added Neem oil, which is a natural repellent for fleas and ticks – perfect for coming into summer which is tick season!
We have two varieties of dog shampoo. The Original is perfect for dogs with sensitive skin, or those who just want a good wash for their pooch. The Charcoal and Lavendar is brilliant for owners who want a little extra from their dog baths. Not only will the lavender oils leave your dog smelling fantastic, but the added charcoal acts as a natural deodorizer, leaving your dog smelling fresh for a little while longer.
Although, being a food shop dogs aren’t allowed in store, we all adore dogs here and will be thrilled to hear stories about how your four-legged friends like our products! We’re sure they will be tail-waggingly pleased! Make sure to snap a photo of your dog and tag us on social media for us to see!
