Bathtime with All Natural K9 Kelp!



Owning a couple of snow white bichon frises, I am always in search of products that will keep my girls clean, bright, and NON-Irritated! I need something that is not going to cause them to itch!! I try to find products that are of the natural variety...products that will agree with Miss Chloe's super sensitive skin!!  It is especially a problem to keep the girls clean when they have been in and out of the water...swimming in either the ocean or the lake!!

Let me tell you a little bit about this fabulous product I have just recently discovered!!    K9Kelp is hand-harvested from the pristine ocean waters of Northern B.C. Canada.

The Kelp beds are in a highly protected area with fast flowing cold ocean water which is optimal for producing high quality kelp.

The harvesting location is monitored by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and BC Agriculture (Marine Plants) regarding suitability for human consumption.

Harvesting is done in a manner that respects the sensitive and complex nature of the Kelp forests. Less than 10% is harvested throughout the annual season.

Kelp Type and Nutrients:

K9Kelp focuses on two major seaweeds, Bullwhip Kelp and Bladderwrack Kelp. Both are well recognized for being loaded with nutritional and medicinal properties for canines and humans alike.

Vitamins:

A, B1, B2, B6, B12, Betaine, C, Carotene, Choline, D, E, Essential fatty acids, Folate, Folic acid, K, Niacin, Riboflavin, Soluble fiber, Thiamin

Minerals:


Bromine, Boron, Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Germanium, Iodine, Iridium, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Nickel, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Rubidium, Selenium, Sodium, Sulfur, Vanadium, Zinc

In addition to focusing on Kelp, K9Kelp products are further complimented with the use of therapeutic pure essential oils and moisturizing butters.

K9Kelp's ingredients' have been formulated to address specific canine ailments and to maintain their healthy lifestyle. You will not find any fillers, watered-down ingredients, or unnecessary artificial fragrances.


You will only find the very BEST of what Mother Nature has to offer!!



I gave the girls a bath using the shampoo and the conditioning spritz.  I really enjoyed the feel of the conditioning spray...it made their fur very easy to comb through and feel these two products are a great addition to our grooming routine.  Here's a few words about the conditioner...

The conditioner is K9Kelp's most popular product due to it's multi-purpose use!

They have uniquely created the Spritz by steeping Kelp to release the complex minerals and nutrients. When absorbed into your dogs coat/skin it will make it more supple, healthy, and odor-free.

In addition, the ingredients include a special blend of pure therapeutic grade essential oils for aromatherapy and naturally healing elements.

Some people may ask why K9Kelp is more expensive than others...

Less expensive supplements may include fillers or the Kelp in it's entirety has less nutritional pieces. Another way that others can offer such low prices is that the Kelp is harvested commercially by dredging the ocean floor and basically destroying the Kelp forests. 


Lastly K9Kelp is only Human-Grade quality which is protected and monitored by the Department of Fisheries & Oceans.



And here you have the AFTER version of Chloe...doesn't she look awesome??  Thanks so much K9Kelp!  Highly Recommend!!

Inspiration for the Day: The Chloe Edition







“I once heard a woman who had lost her dog say that she felt as though a color were suddenly missing from her world: the dog had introduced to her field of vision some previously unavailable hue and without a dog, that color was gone. That seemed to capture the experience of loving a dog with eminent simplicity. I'd amend it only slightly and say that if we are open to what they have to give, dogs can introduce us to several colors with names like wildness, nurturance, trust and joy.”

A Peek at Sackets Harbor

We have been coming to our cottage for years...over 20 to be exact.  One of my most favorite things to do is to visit Sackets Harbor...a little neighboring town.  Sackets is a quaint little village with just the right amount of little boutiques and restaurants...even a little coffee shop named Chrissy Beanz!  No summer would be complete without a stroll on Main Street.

This is just a little collage of some of the pics I took!

Happy Friday!!
