Go Green – Keep Your Dog Even-Tempered, Happier and Healthier

Dog owners have seen how the use of organic ingredients in dog food has increased, and how organic ingredients in dog food actually make for a better-tempered, happier, and much healthier dog. It stands to reason that your dog would greatly benefit from organic food ingredients since many potentially toxic chemicals are eliminated from the production line and from the food.

The same is true of organic dog grooming products, which are increasingly being used by dog groomers and dog owners alike. If you are going to eliminate the ingestion of potentially harmful chemicals through the food that your dog ingests, then you should also eliminate these chemicals from the grooming products that are used on your dog so that it does not absorb them through its skin.

You have to keep in mind that it is in a dog’s nature to groom itself with its tongue, so it is going to absorb chemicals just by being a dog if you are not careful with the grooming products that are used. We can’t change a dog’s nature, so we have to look to change our way of thinking, and we have to eliminate the things that can be harmful.

We sometimes forget that many of the toxic chemicals that end up in our dog’s body don’t only come from what the dog eats, but also from whatever comes into contact with the dog’s skin. The more potentially harmful chemicals that you keep from coming into contact with your dog, the healthier and happier your dog is going to be.

In addition, you will notice a great difference in your dog’s coat when you begin using natural, organic washes and rinses. The fact is that chemicals tend to accumulate on your dog’s coat over time, and they can cause it to feel coarse and to lose the shine and luster that it should have.

Your dog’s coat is a clear sign of just how healthy it is, and a coat with a lack of shine means that your dog is not as healthy as it should be. When you use organic grooming products, you will notice an immediate difference in how soft your dog’s coat feels, and in just how shiny it looks.

At Dog Fountain, the preferred Los Angeles Mobile dog grooming service, we use nothing but the finest, natural, organic shampoos and conditioners when we go to your home to groom your dog. In addition, we have an all-natural solution which will keep your dog’s teeth clean and healthy, and that will add to the overall health of your dog.

This is an especially popular service, and the best part is that dog’s seem to love having their teeth cleaned with our organic solution. As if that weren’t enough, we also use and exclusive, eco-friendly water system, which is like having a spa come to your door to pamper your dog.

Dog Fountain is the only Los Angeles mobile dog groomer that uses this exclusive cleansing system in order to leave your dog with the softest, shiniest, healthiest coat possible. Our years of experience, our use of organic products, and our exclusive cleansing system will ensure that your dog will welcome its next grooming.

If They are Good Enough for You, Then Your Dog Deserves Them Too!

More and more people are turning to organic products such as body washes, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, and so on for several reasons. The reason that is used most often is that they are less harsh on the person since no harsh chemicals are used, and they are much better for the environment.

Another reason that is often cited is that people are often allergic to some of the chemicals used in the manufacture of body washes, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, etc. Therefore, they have to look for an alternative product that will not cause their skin to redden, break out, blister or have some other type of reaction.

Many families with children, especially very young children, are turning to organic products in an effort to avoid putting these harsh chemicals on their children’s bodies. Some people are so allergic to the chemicals used in manufacturing the above-mentioned products that the reactions they have can be life-threatening.

Therefore, they are constantly on the lookout for an organic alternative, and they are always very careful about the products that they buy. They know that organic products tend to be hypo-allergenic, so they don’t have to worry about rushing to the hospital after giving the baby a bath and accidentally applying an allergic reaction-causing chemical.

Well, if organic products are good enough for you and your family, it would stand to reason that they would also be good enough for the dog that you so dearly love. If you and your family protect yourselves and the environment by not using any products with harsh chemicals, it is reasonable to presume that you would want to protect your dog, especially since 15 to 20% of all dogs in the United States suffer from some sort of allergy.

Our Los Angeles Mobile Dog Grooming service uses nothing but the finest organic shampoos and conditioners when we come out to pamper your dog. We know how important it is to use ingredients which will not cause adverse reactions on your dog’s skin, inside the ears, or anywhere else for that matter.

We also know that there are certain breeds that are prone to allergic reactions, and that there are other breeds that have highly sensitive skin. Therefore, besides using organic shampoos and conditioners, we use an eco-cleansing watering system.

We want to be absolutely sure that we treat your dog’s skin, hair and/or fur with great care. We want you to be able to see and feel the difference when you use our mobile dog grooming service. In addition, if you know that your dog is being treated with organic cleansers, you can rest at ease because you will also know that no one in your family will have an allergic reaction to your dog.

All in all, it makes great sense to use organic chemicals on yourself, your family and on your pet. You are taking care of yourself, your family, your dog, and you are taking care of the environment all at the same time.
