There are two types of dog people. Those that let their animals sleep in their bed and those that do not. We don’t share our bed with our dog; he shares it with us. As he’s gotten older, he likes to go to bed earlier these days. He’ll pace around in front of us at night impatient that we’re not ready to head up at the same time as him. Eventually, he’ll give up and head up on his own which inevitably means pushing him off the pillow when we do finally make it upstairs.
It does a number on our sheets. I wash them regularly, but it doesn’t take long before they start to smell like my pup again. It’s a small price to pay for the snuggles we get each night, but it is an ongoing challenge.
Mutt Nose Best creates a line of spa products for dogs including a line of U. Dog shampoos, conditioners, and Eau de Toilet sprays as well as Mutt Nose Best healing balms and ear/eye wipes. While our dog is a self-cleaning model and has only needed a bath after an unfortunate skunk incident, I was intrigued by the Eau de Toilet sprays. They have a lengthy catalog of scents including:
U. Berry Calm Puppy
U. Berry Clean Dog
U. Dirty Dog
U. Hairy Dog
U. Itchy Puppy
U. Pumpkin Patch
U. Puppy Dog
U. Smelly Dog
U. Tick Me Off!
I opted to try out the U. Smelly Dog which is a rosemary and peppermint scent. I did a few test spritzes on my dog who was a little confused but liked the scent enough to lick the spray. While he’s named after Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, he’s really not that sophisticated so I’m not sure he’s a perfume kind of pup but that’s okay.
I think the Eau de Toilet will be a perfect way to freshen up our bed between washings. I’ve also been trying it out on my couch because you know if we’re letting him up on our bed that he gets the run of our living room furniture too. The spray has a nice refreshing, clean scent that I really like. Maybe I will need to give him a direct spritz from time to time too.
Their products are made with locally sourced natural and organic ingredients.
They also run the Mutt Nose Best Paw It Forward Foundation. Here is an excerpt from the description of the foundation listed on the website:
“The Mutt Nose Best Paw It Forward Foundation is committed to advocating for the animal victims of domestic violence and their humans. Our goals are to raise awareness with educational programs, promote community resources and most importantly provide funding grants for existing domestic violence shelters to create pet friendly accommodations as part of the resources they are able to offer.”
They hold an annual “BARKK To End The Silence” Dog Friendly 5K to raise money for their foundation. They are in the process of putting together a volunteer team for this year’s race which they hope to run in September.
