Fresh Dog ™ is the maker of time-saving grooming products for dogs that could use, well... a little freshening up in-between their regular baths. *Click to visit company website. They have 2 products to help clean up a stinky dog: a dry shampoo powder and the waterless bath foam. After testing both products, this is what we found out...
• Fresh Dog ™ Dry Shampoo: If you’ve ever used a dry shampoo on your own hair, you know it works by absorbing the oil and dirt from your scalp, leaving your hair looking like it’s just been washed. Fresh Dog's dry shampoo does basically the same thing for your dog. It is a loose powder that you sprinkle directly onto your dog's coat for an instantly clean and freshen appearance.
When applying the product, I found it best to sprinkle a small amount at a time, as using too much at once can cause a cloud of powder. I started at the base of the neck, sprinkling a bit of powder and massaging it in. I continued adding a bit more powder as needed, working my way down the back. A little powder goes a long way and my Schnauzer really enjoyed the massage. Note: I did not apply any product to the face, just to the body and legs.
When I finished applying the product to the areas I wanted to cover, I took a soft bristle brush and brushed my dog out. This helped to distribute the powder even further and removed the excess along with small bits of dirt.
I actually applied the powder to my dog while in the backyard. Since it was my first time trying out this type of product, I wasn’t sure if the process would be messy or not. It wasn’t. I did notice that my dog’s coat appeared whiter, so dogs with a black coat might need a bit more brushing.
The dry shampoo powder is easy-to-use and smells, well… fresh! The powder is infused with essential oils and has a marvelous lavender rosemary scent. I even deodorized my Schnauzer’s dog bed by sprinkling some onto it, too. It just smells so good. The dry shampoo powder is a good product to use as a quick way to remove odors and freshen up your dog's coat.
• Fresh Dog ™ Waterless Foam Bath: If your Schnauzer is in need of a bath but you just don’t have the time to do it, this waterless bath foam will solve your problem. Why it’s a bath in a bottle and no water needed!
Just dispense a few pumps of foam in the palm of your hand and distribute over your dog, taking special care not to get any into the eyes. Massage the foam fully into your dog's coat to loosen and break away any dirt and oils. Then towel dry your dog off... That's It!
My Schnauzer did not object to the foam bath at all and in fact, pranced around like "I got it going on" when we were done. I think he was just as happy as I was that he was clean and smelling fresh.
I really like this product. There was no sticky residue and it smells great. I've tried squirt-on waterless shampoos before, but this foam bath is way better. The foam is thicker and richer and distributes the cleaning agent much more effectively, so you end up using less of it.
note: Although it is a waterless shampoo, the foam itself does dampen your dog's coat, but you do not need to rinse it out. Just allow the product to do its magic.
Once you towel dry your dog, it dries quickly and leaves the coat super soft and smelling great! I loved it!
This leave-on formula not only cleans, moisturizes and freshens your dog, but does so without affecting your dog's topical flea treatment. I will definitely keep a bottle on hand. In fact, I came up with 10 good reasons you might want to use the waterless bath foam, too....
So for a great alternative to regular shampoos and the dreaded task of giving your dog a bath, try Fresh Dog ™! It will leave your dog's coat smelling fresh and clean.
