This is Tilly, and she approves this message!!

 

 

Spring is just around the corner!  So, I figured it was time for Tilly’s “Spring Sprucing.” When the warm weather rolls around, she is ready to be outside and that means it’s time to stock up on some grooming products!  I have gathered a few of my favorite products from Two Bostons, that I truly believe in full heartedly…from on true and trusted dog lover to another, allow me to elaborate on these amazing products that your pets will simply love!

Blueberry Facial Dog Shampoo by South Bark:

DSC06274Oh my goodness, gracious, blueberry galore!  I’ve had my eye on this shampoo for about a year…some call me indecisive, and they are probably right.  I’m an analyst, I want the facts, no assumptions allowed.  After hearing so many great things about this shampoo, I decided to give it a go!

I was amazed…Trust me, you want to try this one!

Blueberry facial is gentle, soothing and it brightens all coats.  It did not leave any residue at all and she actually licked the shampoo from her face while I was lathering her up.  What makes this shampoo so tasty? Well, lets take a closer look shall we? Blueberries, Jojoba, coconut oil, avocados and aloe.  Jojoba oil, the ONLY oil that resembles sebum (naturally produced by the oil glands below the skins surface) making it INCREDIBLE for your pets skin and coat.  Coconut oil, fights yeast and fugal infections.  Best of all, it is incredible for soothing joint pain.  It gets better, avocados and aloe: two ingredients that soothe and moisturize at the same time!

Mineral Spa Shampoo by Reliq:

alll the gooooddsLet’s talk about Reliq for a moment…this is a shampoo with NO oil residue, leaving the coat moisturized and soft.  Think clay masks but for dogs. The benefits of Aztec clay masks are endless, many naturopaths use clay masks for healing skin aliments and even arthritis.  Reliq has a nano-enhanced mineral which acts as a medicinal powdered clay.  The clay absorbs excess oils, toxins, dirt, etc. It’s no wonder this shampoo stimulates your pups skin and removes odors instantaneously.

Zymox Enzymatic Shampoo by Pet King Brands:

Last by certainly not least, Zymox.  Unlike humans who start sneezing and coughing during Seasonal changes, dogs usually get itchy dry skin. Zymox works tremendously well for itchy skin.  It is safe for puppies and kittens as well as adult dogs and cats.  If you notice your dog itching and he is already on a healthy grain free food, it’s possible that the seasonal changes got the best of him.  Zymox will help soothe and moisturize the skin.  There is absolutely NO harsh chemicals, steroids or detergents used in Zymox, also refferred to as the naturalistic approach to medicated shampoos.

No bath, No problem…Earth Bath Grooming Wipes:

greeeeeeenBath time is not always doable.  Earth Bath Grooming wipes are gentle on your dogs coat because they are hypoallergenic (my favorite word)! The wipes come in scented and unscented depending on your preference.  This is a great item to pack in your doggy diaper bag for trail hikes, overnight stays and the dog park!  They are also safe for humans.

 

 

Come on by to any of our Two Bostons stores and let the spring sprucing begin!

As a life-long allergy sufferer, I know it can be frustrating to love animals, yet experience miserable allergy symptoms in their presence. As mentioned in my last post, pet allergies aren’t actually caused by long or fluffy fur. They’re caused by animal dander, which is just a fancy term for the flakes of skin that pets shed along with their hair every day. Well, today I’m here with more good news: in addition to the diet strategies I’ve already mentioned, effective grooming and cleansing techniques can go a long way toward allergy relief for pets and their people!

A lot of customers ask us about hypoallergenic shampoos for dogs, but humans with pet-related allergies have to be a bit careful when shopping. Certain products aren’t necessarily formulated with human allergy sensitivities in mind – for instance, products meant to combat animal dander can sometimes dry out skin due to the alcohol-based ingredients they contain. Definitely counterproductive! Thankfully, Two Bostons just started carrying an awesome, hypoallergenic shampoo line that I’d recommend for anyone looking to reduce animal dander – Mineral Spa Shampoo by Reliq!

What makes Mineral Spa so unique is an unexpected “secret ingredient”: volcanic minerals! Yup, that’s right … this shampoo actually contains ingredients derived from volcanic powdered clay, a medicinal compound that Native Americans used to call Healing Clay. The minerals in this clay are extremely absorbent. Just like an actual mineral bath, they help to pull oils, toxins, and impurities from the skin. This can clear problem skin and remove unwanted odors. But not only do these minerals neutralize odors right at the source; they act as natural, gentle moisturizers that can reduce the effects of dander while softening your pup’s skin and coat. This, in turn, can help reduce your own pet-related allergies!

Reliq_MineralSpa

Some customers may notice that Reliq’s Mineral Spa Shampoos don’t provide as much sudsing action as certain other shampoos. This is normal, due to the mineral-based formula — it doesn’t mean they’re not working! These low-lather formulas rinse off more easily to save both time and water. That means they’re also easier on sensitive hands, reducing the dryness, redness, and itchiness that can be caused by regular pet bathing. Another big plus for allergy sufferers! To complete your dog’s “spa day,” grab some Reliq Paw Spa balm. This non-greasy cream formula contains honey extract and natural oils to help soothe, repair, and protect your furry friend’s paws from the hot summer pavement (and all year long).

As always, remember not to over-wash your dog – once every few weeks should do the trick for most breeds. Over-washing can lead to excess drying of the skin and coat, which leads to more dander and more sneezing for you! With Mineral Spa, though, over-washing shouldn’t be a worry. The formula doesn’t just mask odors; it completely absorbs and eliminates them. Plus, it comes in lots of fresh botanical scents like Lavender, Rosemary, Jasmine, Green Tea, and Pomegranate. We’ve had customers tell us that each scent continues to smell good on their dogs a full week or more after washing!

So remember the good news: when it comes to pet-related allergy care for YOU, there’s a lot you can do to control watery eyes and stuffy noses. That means you can keep enjoying fun adventures with your pup for years to come. Stop by any Two Bostons store to ask us more about grain-free diets and special grooming solutions that combat dander to get rid of those pesky allergy symptoms once and for all!
