Both Echo and Gracie have very healthy and shiny coats, so taking care of their coats by picking the right shampoo is something that is important to me. Gracie in particular likes to dig and roll in dirt. It is a constant struggle to keep her clean and looking fresh, however I can tell she feels better after a bath and brush out. I was very excited when Isle of Dogs contacted me about trying out some of their outer beauty and inner wellness products! They asked that I try their Everyday NaturaLuxury Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as their Daily Essentials treats for teeth and breath. Both of these products are natural and I was happy with their ingredient list, so I decided to give them a try with Echo and Gracie!
What do I look for in a shampoo or conditioner for my dogs? I like to use shampoos that add volume on Gracie to give her coat that extra bounce and plush feel. For Echo, I prefer a shampoo that will make his coat feel soft and silky. If you bathe your dog often, it is important to pick a shampoo that is free of any harsh chemicals that could dry out their coat and skin. I feel sulfates and parabens should always be avoided in dog shampoo, however many pet shampoos contain these chemicals. I also enjoy a long lasting scent in a shampoo or conditioner, so that the dogs stay smelling fresh for days after their bath.
What did I like about the Isle of Dogs’ Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner? The Isle of Dogs’ shampoo and conditioner is sulfate and paraben free and has added keratin in it. Keratin is a protein that helps to strengthen hair, add shine, and build volume. I did notice that Gracie’s coat had extra volume and shine after using the Isle of Dogs’ shampoo and conditioner. The conditioner also helped to loosen up her undercoat so that I was able to brush it out more easily. The scent is described as violet and sea mist, which I thought smelled very nice and refreshing. I noticed the scent lasted for several days too!
What about the Daily Essential treats? The Daily Essential treats are USA made, gluten free, vegetarian treats. They have four different varieties- one for puppies, one for hips and joints, one for skin and coat, and the one we tried, for fresh breath and healthy teeth. As you may remember, I have been working on improving Gracie’s dental health this year. I have been very happy with her results so far. However, she can still have some of the “doggy breath” that comes with bad dental health. These treats contain apples, parsley, and peppermint that help to freshen the breath and fight tarter. Not only do I approve of these treats, but Echo and Gracie liked them too! Gracie can be picky about treats, but she happily ate the Daily Essentials cookie.
I would definitely use this shampoo and conditioner on a regular basis and would recommend the Isle of Dogs Everyday NaturaLuxury shampoo line to anyone looking for a quality dog shampoo that can be used on a regular basis. I would also recommend the Daily Essential treats. I believe that these all natural treats are a much better alternative to an unhealthy dog snack. Both of my dogs liked them and they help to give them good breath!
Thanks for reading!
Katie, Gracie, and Echo
