Splish Splash, I was takin' a bath...Long about a saturday night...

Part 1 of 2

Josey and Lucas had baths today. It's a production and having the right tools, products on hand can make the job easier. For example, we love the Zoom Groom by Kong. Though honestly, I do not know that much about selecting a dog shampoo. But we do know how to read labels!
current supply of dog shampoos

Orange-label bottle in the middle is the most recent addition. Our friends at dogzoomies enjoyed a summer vacation at Glen Highland Farm's Canine Country Camp and picked up an extra bottle of dog shampoo for us...Pop's Pet Organics Muli-Purpose Pet Shampoo by Pop's Pet Products. Below are the shampoo ingredients of 3 brands in our supply, plus 2 more brands we've purchased frequently in the past.

Pop's Pet Organics Multi-Purpose Pet Shampoo

Pet Aromatics Honeysuckle Hound Shampoo (w/ Conditioner)

Ingredients: coconut shampoo base, aloe vera gel, essence of lavendar, essence of mint, chamomile extract, sage extract, nettles extract, rosemary extract, wheat protein extract (natural deodorizing agent), tea tree oil, vitamin E, vitamin C. 16 oz.

Seems like the shampoos have identical, similar ingredients but they're called different things. So far I like what I read in Pop's over the others.

Okay, I'll pose pretty next to Pop's
Wait a minute...are you serious about the bath?
Stay tuned for Part 2.

Josey's expression in that last one is so funny!

I think the other difference in Pop's is that might be the only organic shampoo of the bunch, if that makes a difference in selection.
