Our Story

In the beginning, I simply wanted a dog shampoo that had a long lasting scent.

I like to cuddle and I love to cuddle with my dogs but not so much when they stink. 🥴  Bath time always seemed like so much work! I would be drenched in water and my dog would smell like a "dog" again in a matter of hours!

The more research I did the more concerned I became, many of the products widely used in dog shampoos to deter insects, whiten coats, etc. are full of  toxic chemicals that not only expose your dog but anyone in contact with them, and, of course, they come in single-use plastic!

So I did tons of research and the Shampoo Paw was born! Created with all natural, plant-based ingredients, essential oils and NO PLASTIC!!

With the shampoo paw you wet your dog first then massage until the paw dissolves or your dog is clean.  The massage calms your dog and the soap rinses easily so you actually stay dry!! Check it out here.

Eventually, I decided to start a company to reduce the environmental impact created by dogs and built on 4 core values:

  • Create all natural, healthy and effective products for dogs.

  • Protect the environment.

  • Partner with like-minded businesses to make a bigger impact.

  • Be a positive change in the world.

Soy Ink + Compostable Packaging: RPI Graphic Data Solutions

Being good stewards of the planet is the driving force behind our business. This passion for the environment led us to RPI Graphic Solutions of Cincinnati, Ohio, a women-led business and commercial printer dedicated to sustainability.  They designed the folding boxes for our shampoo paws without the need for toxic glue!  RPI also built the boxes with a compostable substrate and printed in soy inks so that our packaging is not only biodegradable but compostable as it contains no toxic chemicals!
