pampering my polka dot princess

in dog heaven, there are no baths, plenty of cats, squirrels and rabbits to chase, lizards to stalk, and food and treats and bones galore. and lots and lots of stinky stuff to roll around in.

Every polka dot princess deserves to have her four paws pampered along with the rest of her canine self. And what better way to pamper your dog (and you) then to make bathtime easier.

ok, so cici does not live in doggie heaven. she loves the water at the beach, a river, lake, or swimming pond, but she does not like to go out in the rain. Nor take a bath.

So imagine, being able to clean her off or your dog off without water. What a concept. EarthBath offers several possibilities, travel wipes (like sanitary wipes to clean off your hands only bigger) and grooming foam in two flavors (green tea and regular).

I used the sanitary wipes to get a spot off of Cici, that had dripped onto her, possibly when I was cooking this weekend. I did not know if I could use them this way but I thought what the heck. Boy, was I amazed that the spot came off right away, instantly, presto. Since she was ok with me doing that, I proceeded to use the wipe all over her wiggly body. She was fine. No hiding. No balking. No running away.  And the wipes smell good.

A Natural Approach
You can even toss in your car or purse and drive away, so these are great for traveling.  The earthbath Travel Wipes with Green Tea Leaf Extract safely and easily wipe away dirt and odor between baths. And boy does Cici get stinky, like most dogs do. Any time of year, you can clean your dog’s dirty paws and underbelly.  Cici does a great job of licking her private parts and butt, but these wipes are safe even for these delicate areas. They remove dander, drool, discharge and crap from playing with other dogs, in the park, rolling in the grass and whatever your dog plays in.

The mild cleansers freshen and deodorize as the anti-oxidant properties of Green Tea Leaf Extract protect from environmental damage. Hawaiian Awapuhi conditions the coat and imparts a healthy shine while Aloe Vera and Vitamin E moisturize coat and skin.

Do not flush wipes down the toilet. I threw them in the trash. Store in a cool, dry place.  The only issue I had was with opening the package. Hopefully, the other wipes in there won’t dry out.  I am not very handy and have issues with my hand and wrist at the moment so although the package says you can open it up by tearing on the dotted line type of thing, that did not work for me and I just cut it open.

What is also nice about these products is the smell is very subtle. Some shampoos and spritzers I’ve used had too much odor masking for my taste and ended up being annoying.

When you wash your dog the earthbath dog way and your dog will be cleaner, fresher and all without water. There is a k9 god watching out for our critters, after all.

Don’t you think that cici should be their spokes dog? heh heh heh…

  1. Our Mama gives us baths with Earthdog shampoo, and she thinks we smell so nice afterwards… not soapy-smelling like our old shampoo. Maybe she should get the grooming wipes because… uh… sometimes poop gets stuck to the fur b Lily’s butt, and Mama has an awful time getting it off! 😀

    • yes earthbath wipes, shampoo or groomies can take away the sticky ickies dogs get into routinely. no muss no fuss. tell them you saw my blog, when you do. thanks !

    • like someone else said: Sounds like a great product. Would be ideal for the dog who “goobers” all over you. thinking of Boxers, Newfies, St. Bernards, etc. You could wipe their face and then use another to wipe the “goober” off of you.
