I have a confession to make: I don't bathe my dogs very often. I don't mind bathing them, but they dislike the bath so much, that I end up feeling sorry for them and I let them get pretty grungy before I’ll subject them to a B-A-T-H. How long do I go between bathing them? Let’s put it this way: Not long ago, I found a piece of a candy cane in Pearl’s fur – and it was March.
Enter Fresh & Fluffy dry dog shampoo. This stuff is a boon for Pearl and Jasmine, because they don’t have to suffer the indignities of the tub, but instead get a nice massage from me, and then a little gentle brushing. That’s it! With the pop of a top and a sprinkle of fragrant powder, I can turn my stinky pups into fresh-smelling princesses, as they should be.
Fresh & Fluffy is great logistically for the dogs, but the best part of it is for me is that the product is all-natural. I’m very chemically sensitive, a condition I was left with after having Lyme Disease. I can’t use perfumed detergent or soaps. I don’t get a reaction at all from Fresh & Fluffy, which is critical for me with any product that I use.
I really love both scents, both the Lavender and the Peppermint. The lavender makes me think of fields of lavender in France – and the Peppermint makes me want to take a little nibble out of one of my dogs! For me, the fact that the dogs don’t retain a fake, chemical odor, is very important.
Use the dry shampoo outside, in the tub, or put a towel beneath your dog just to make it easier to clean up the powder that you brush out of the coat, which will have absorbed oil and dirt from the skin and coat.
The best way to use the product is to run a brush over the dog’s coat first to loosen any dirt. Then sprinkle Fresh & Fluffy into the coat and brush it out. You can sprinkle the powder into the brush as well. The powder isn’t like talcum – it’s a little denser, so it’s easier to work with.
Big paws up for Fresh & Fluffy! I’ll definitely continue to use this product for the times in between baths. Both Pearl and Jasmine are grateful for it!
