When I read about The Dogs Trust new line of poochie pampering on the fabulous blog from Sasha Wilkins, Liberty London Girl, I thought if it’s good enough for P-Bad then it’s good enough for Mimi! We received a lovely doggy bag full to the brim with gorgeous smelling products for poochie pampering. There was a Mint and Vervain Shampoo, an Aloe and Papaya Spritz, a Basil and Rosemary Spritz and a Paw Protection Cream. The shampoo is formulated with aloe, zinc PCA and oatmeal, which are mild, gentle and soothe any irritation from itching and scratching. All the products are sulphate and paraben-free.
It has to be said, Mimi is not a fan of wash time at all, as you will see in the video below. But once she’s in the bath or shower she doesn’t mind that much. The association of the yellow bottles with wash time means Mimi is very wary whenever they’re out; the ears go down, she runs away if you have one in your hand (you can see from the look in her eye in the photo below). But, strangely enough, as soon as she has been spritzed her tail begins to wag so I guess the spritzes can’t be all that bad. The shampoo and both spritzes all smell gorgeous and leave Mimi smelling good enough to eat.
The Paw Protection Cream has a lighter fragrance and whilst Mimi doesn’t have the driest of paws they felt lovely and soft afterwards, and from her reaction, I think she quite enjoyed the little foot massages whilst applying the product.
The best thing about this range is that all sales are raising money for The Dogs Trust and with Christmas around the corner the sad truth is that there will be dogs needing homes once the novelty of the Christmas gift has worn off. If you are thinking of getting a dog or any pet for Christmas think long and hard and only then if you are sure opt for a rescue dog. Short term they may be more work, require a bit more training and discipline, but in the long term, the rewards far outweigh the effort trust me.
