The first thing I did when we brought Gertie into our home for the first time was give her a bath. She had a touch of demodex and she smelled a little funky. I needed something gentle and something that would help with the smell. I gave Kiko a bath a couple of weeks ago and used shampoo I received from a brand called Petology®, so I thought I would try another of their formulas for Gertie.
The founder of Petology, Rick Ferritto of Pet Research Labs, has worked with health and beauty care products and formulas for a couple of decades. The love Rick has for his family doesn’t stop with the humans in his life. Much like us, his family includes his 4-legged pals: Duke, Gracie, Maggie and Bella. He’s got one up on me! He decided to embark on a mission to create high quality grooming products that would be safe, effective, and affordable for everyone. His innovative way of thinking, which combines science and nature, led to the creation of three cruelty free formulas: Professional, Oatmeal & Honey, and Sensitive.
Let’s face it, most dogs do not like grooming. Mine certainly don’t. The idea behind the pet products is to cut down on grooming. The formulas are made to create a rich lather to get down deep with cleaning your dog’s skin and coat. You might think it would take longer to rinse with the amount of lather the shampoos create but with these formulas, rinsing is a breeze and doesn’t take long at all. We put it to the test and it passed. I was able to rinse Kiko and Gertie off quicker than with another brand I tried.
So why does the amount of time it takes to rinse your dog matter? Time. Plain and simple. Your dog doesn’t want to be in that tub any longer than she has to. Maybe you just take your dog to the groomer, so this doesn’t matter to you. Personally, I want to save my money; I groom my dogs all by myself. Not only does it save money, it creates memories and more of a bond between me and my dogs.
What sets Petology Pet Products apart from other grooming products? Their advanced Smart Technology. In their own words:
Smart Technology – advanced proprietary compounds that combine the best of science and nature to cleanse, repair and condition the coat and skin:
- NaturShine: a patent-pending, all natural complex that replenishes the shine and conditioning effects of actual canine sebum. Makes the coat soft and water-repellant–with superior shine.
- Vitacon: a patented vitamin complex of A, B-12, D, E, Green Tea and Chamomile that provides outstanding benefits to pets’ skin.
- PMC (Plant Moisturizing Complex): a natural, plant-derived compound that provides instant, deep hydration and generates a moisture reservoir that lasts for up to 72 hours.
We only sampled the shampoos, so I can only tell you my thoughts on the shampoo products we tried. I think the cost of the shampoos, which is $11.99 for a 15 oz bottle, is comparable to others on the market. I could see a nice amount of lather and it did rinse off pretty quickly. Since my dogs do not like being bathed, so the quicker I can get them out of the tub, the better.
