For Every Dogtails Shampoo Sold, a Shelter Dog Gets a Blanket

The company’s all-natural dog shampoo not only soothes dry, itchy, or sensitive skin, it also helps keep shelter pups warm through blanket donations.

Given the sheer amount of fur dogs have, it’s only natural to obsess over what products go on this most cuddle-worthy asset. You want something that works (i.e. actually removes the aromatic evidence of dog park visits), but is also pure, gentle, eco-friendly — and the list goes on.

Dogtails Natural Dog Grooming Products check all of those boxes, and then some. Made with soothing essentials oils and no harsh chemicals, the dog shampoo is the bestseller of this brand’s line. It promises to help your hound’s coat stay shiny and is especially easy on dry, itchy, or sensitive skin. And everything is sustainably packaged in gorgeous recyclable bottles that look like something out of an apothecary shop.

The 16 oz. shampoo ($16) has sunflower seed, rosemary, and grapefruit oils — a combination that delivers moisture and body while acting as a natural antiseptic. Opt for the Deluxe Grooming Bundle ($50 to $58), and you’ll also get a recycled cotton tote bag, grooming brush, and microfiber towel.

And your dog isn’t the only one who can benefit from Dogtails. Every time a dog lover purchases the shampoo, the company donates a blanket to a local animal shelter or rescue group. These have included Miami Animal Services, Humane Society North Miami, Humane Society Broward County, Michigan Humane SocietyAnimal Haven NYC, and New York Bully Crew.
