Tell us more about your business
All my grooming products are hand made in Australia in small batches. Nothing is mass manufactured. I only use human-grade cosmetic ingredients, all-natural ingredients and organic where possible. I only use essential oils and no synthetic fragrances. I have an ethos of being as enviro friendly as possible the only plastic components I use are the caps on the spritzer colognes, and the aromatherapy oils. No plastics bubble wrap and my packing tape is enviro-friendly plus couriers are carbon neutral. All this premium goodness but I still sell at comparative price to the mass manufacturers who use substandard ingredients - I want all owners to be able to get quality at an affordable price!
What do you sell/offer?
I sell aromatherapy products to make your dog look, feel and smell fine

Do you run ambassador programs and if so how can a pupper reading this find out more?
We’re always supporting pups giveaways and would be open to any ambassadors they can contact us via instagram DM
If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
It can be a hard slow slog, but don’t give up, the rewards of seeing a dog’s healed nose, or seeing them using and recommending your product is worth it.
