Spring is almost here and I wanted to help you to Discover the Top 4 Products for Spring. There’s a bit of a mix here so there should be something for everyone!

Hownd: Yup You Stink Shampoo

It would only be right for me to start this with shampoo, just because winter is on its way out it certainly doesn’t mean you won’t need to bath your dog. Now if your dog is anything like Lilly, she’ll always find something dirty, smelly or dead to roll in!

Hownd has created a wide range of Cruelty-Free shampoos, the bottle in my photograph is the Professional 5 litre jug, as used by Professional Dog Groomers, you can get them in retail 250ml bottles for use at home. I have the following scents that I use at the salon:

  • Yup You Stink – for dogs that are super muddy or a little pungent!
  • Got an Itch – for dogs with sensitive skin, dandruff or a dull coat.
  • Keep Calm – used with dogs that are maybe a little nervous.
  • Miracle White & Bright – for helping get those beautiful white coats nice and bright, naturally!

I use these shampoos year round because I’m very keen to ensure I use natural, cruelty free products on the dogs I work with and if I wouldn’t use it on Lilly it won’t ever be used in my groom room.

Herbal Pet Supplies: No More Bites  

No more bites by herbal pet supplies

This is a hot topic of discussion year round but as Spring arrives the risk increases for flea and tick infestation. As such I use Herbal Pet Supplies: No More Bites, this is because it is a natural repellent for both fleas and ticks. This fantastic preventative can be used alongside veterinary flea and tick control, however, I personally just use Herbal Pet Supplies No More Bites as my flea and tick control for Lilly and have done for some time.

Herbal Pet Supplies: Fresh Orange Hand Cleanser

Fresh orange hand cleanser by herbal pet supplies

This is definitely one for the humans more than the pets! My hands spend so much time being washed and when I worked in the vets harsh chemicals too. It’s so nice to be able to use this beautiful, chemical free hand cleanser! I take it with me on walks just in case the bag splits or for sticky sweet moments! I love how it smells and it doesn’t dry my hands out or make them sore!

Herbal Pet Supplies: Eco-Cleaner

Eco cleaner by herbal pet supplies

This product is a MUST have, it’s totally chemical free, safe to use in all areas of your home. From cleaning the toilet to cleaning your windows it’s got you covered! I’ve found the eco-cleaner to be much kinder on my hands whilst also being super effective at cleaning all area’s of my home, including the washing machine! I’m not the only one who absolutely loves the eco-cleaner range, you only have to search for Herbal Pet Supplies Eco-Cleaner to see the amount of reviews and times it sells out! The scents of this fantastic product change with the seasons and that’s fantastic because you’ll never get bored! 

KONG: Zoom Groom Brush

Those of you with short haired breeds will be no strangers to shedding fur. I’m regularly asked about what brush I recommend to help with this in-between professional grooming appointments. For me the KONG Zoom Groom is the only brush you need for a short coat, if used correctly you can get an astonishing amount of dead coat removed. As this brush is rubber you can use it in the bath or on a dry coat, I always recommend using it on a clean, dry coat for the best results.


I hope you find some of these products useful not only for your dog but also for yourself. I’ve purchased all of the items mentioned here and I’ve not been paid to include them in this post. Here’s some links for you to be able to find some of the products mentioned in the post.
