I read somewhere that when dogs feel extremely comfortable, protected and secure, they will expose their belly. The thinking is that ancestrally, in the wild, exposing your vulnerable parts (belly and groin) can put an animal in danger. But household pets hundreds of years later definitely will be doing lots of that. My dog Cami shows her happiness by rolling – ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE. This means a simple park visit could be a long bath afterwards. The parks in Vegas always have dried grass bits, leaves and dust that sticks to her short double coat. Even though Cami went from 8 to 80 lbs really quick, she will always be our baby!

Production & Design
This dog care set was made in Maniago, Italy, a city with a history of steel blade production dating back to the medieval 1500s. Due to their proximity to Venice, the old blacksmiths of Maniago were permitted to use the streams to cool and cut their steel during tool production.
The company that produced and designed this grooming kit was founded in 1912, specializing in farming tools. In 1952, with four generations of tool making under its belt, the company decided to hone its focus solely on knives for the home kitchen and professional butchery.
Since then, the company continues to innovate and improve its products. Recent innovations include knives fitted with “paperstone” handles made of post-consumer waste paper and recycled cardboard “booklet” boxes to replace the bulky knife stand and messy knife drawer. The pet care line is the first foray outside of food preparation and serving tools.

I wanna go to Fuzz Wax Bar just because the name is so fun! Fuzz Wax Bar is one of Queen Street West’s newest beauty bars offering a range of services for men and women that focuses on one thing only – getting rid of the fuzz. The concept behind Toronto’s first wax bar is simple: high-quality, quick service combined with affordable pricing within a sophisticated, clean service-oriented environment.

No one wants to spend 45 minutes getting hair ripped off their bodies.”<— TRUTH

Planet Dog’s new Waterless 2-in-1 Shampoo conveniently turns bathing into an easy one-step process by offering a conditioning dry-wash formula made from a blend of naturally derived ingredients: coconut; coconut oil; oatmeal and almond extracts; and oatmeal and almond fragrances. Waterless shampoos are an emerging favorite, and our version contains no synthetic dyes and is easy to use. Just spray liberally onto a dry or damp coat, brush, rub or comb it in and then dry with a towel – no water or rinsing necessary.
The Oatmeal 2-in-1 Shampoo offers a soothing and conditioning blend of naturally derived ingredients: coconut; coconut oil; oatmeal and almond extracts; and oatmeal and almond fragrances. When applied to a wet coat, it forms a conditioning, easy-to-rinse lather. The natural conditioners in the formula leave the coat soft and tangle-free.
Planet Dog’s Deodorizing Shampoo is also naturally derived from coconut and coconut oil, but it also utilizes a blend of odor-neutralizing compounds that bond with and neutralize malodor molecules, rendering them permanently undetectable. The deodorizing combination helps eliminate skunk and other tough odors.
The new Healing Shampoo was specifically formulated to relieve dry, itchy and irritated skin. It clams and soothes the skin and is an effective treatment for skin allergies, eczema and hot spots. It also includes naturally derived ingredients from coconut and is pH balanced with coconut oil and eucalyptus. Planet Dog refers to it as their “medicated” shampoo due to chloroxylenol (PCX), a highly effective and anti-microbial active ingredient that helps treat common skin irritations.
The Oatmeal 2-in-1 Shampoo, Deodorizing Shampoo and Healing Shampoo are sold in 16-ounce and one gallon recyclable containers. The Waterless 2-in-1 Shampoo is only available in the 16-ounce size. Retailers and groomers can place an order at http://www.planetdogretailer.
