Pet Product Review: Isle of Dogs Canine Grooming System
So, if you’ve been reading my blog, Champ and I have a fancy weekend away in the Hamptons. Since its our first social beach weekend we want to look our best. Today, Champ’s groomer Barry came over for brush, comb, massage, bath and clip. Lucky for us, Champ and I get sent a variety of samples to choose from. And lucky for Barry, he has so many clients he’s always looking for the just the right grooming brand for each of his canine clients. As you may know, dogs like people all have different hair types, so some products work better than other. Also, every product has its own signature fragrance. Barry and I decided on Isle of Dogs Canine Grooming System.
Now, as you know, grooming is costly. Besides the price of the groomer, the products can be costly, so you want to make sure you pick products that have ingredients and qualities you like. I chose the Isle of Dogs Canine Grooming System for this session because their system is based on all natural primrose oil. Because Champ is a Shetland Sheepdog, he has a tendency to have hair of many different textures that grows long. I wanted his hair to be as silky as possible with out being too greasy. I read primrose is a very light oil so I figured it might be just the right grooming system.
Another important grooming consideration for me is lather. I’ll be honest, I want shampoo that lathers up. Also, I like conditioner that washes out quickly and does not have an overpowering smell.
Well, Isle of Dogs Shampoo no. 10 and their conditioner no. 50 had what I was looking for. I’m not an expert, but the combination of the two products met my needs. Champ is clean, clean, clean and smells fresh and natural. Now if you want your dog to smell very fragrant, this is not the product for you. Isle of Dogs Canine Grooming System leaves a completely au natural scent.
After the clipping and cutting we applied the no. 60 Grooming Spray. Now I use the grooming spray to add luster and mitigate the drying flaking skin. But the shampoo and conditioner alone worked so well, its hard to give an assesment on the no. 60 Grooming Spray. I do wish Champs hair was more silky. But then again that could be his breed.
All in all, I’m happy with today’s grooming session, and the Isle of Dogs Canine Grooming System. I went to their website www.iodogs.com and was impressed with the information on the site, and especially impressed with their shop by breed selection. Also impressive, however, were the prices. To buy the Isle of Dogs Canine Grooming System of the 3 products I tested no. 10 Shampoo, no. 50 Conditioner, no. 60 Grooming Spray all in 250 ml bottles would set you back $60.
I do recommend the products, but go to their site. Again, its www.iodogs.com.
