As I’ve mentioned before, we’re not great about bathing the dogs over here. Bath time has always been traumatic for Pyrrha, despite our best efforts to associate it with fun and treats, so we take her sparingly to a self-serve groomer, where we can get the bath done efficiently.
We don’t have a super set-up for baths in our new home, but we’ve never attempted to bathe Eden before, so we decided it was time to try.
Eden, as I’ve mentioned before, has been a generally itchy puppy. We have her on fish oil, and that has seemed to help a lot (now that we’re three weeks in, I’m seeing a marked difference in both her coat softness and how much she scratches). So, when I won a giveaway from Maggie for Organic Oscar grooming products, I was hopeful that we might receive something that could help our itchy little one.
I was delighted to receive a set of Organic Oscar’s organic aloe vera shampoo and conditioner, specifically marketed for itchy pups. The products come in these very cute bone-shaped containers and a handy pump dispenser. With our new shampoo and conditioner in hand, we prepared ourselves for BATH TIME.
Eden is a generally happy-go-lucky puppy, and so we had a feeling that she’d handle a bath much better than her anxious older sister. Happily, we were right. She didn’t enjoy it, and tried to scamper out of the tub a few times, but she wasn’t frightened. Plus, we were constantly plying her with clicks and treats for calm, compliant behavior, so she was happy to go along with this weird experience.
We liked using a product that was organic and that was marketed for dogs with itchiness issues. The pump dispenser, as I mentioned, also made it easy to apply on the fly.
