Hello dog lovers! It’s Jan from Poppytalk! Being a new dog owner myself, I’m excited to bring some of my favorite handmade pet-themed products I’ve come across lately to Dog Milk! As I hadn’t had a dog since I was a child, I was quite surprised there was so much to learn when it came to dog things. From collars to dishes, we’ve been learning as we go, and who would know there would be so many choices? I’m loving the handmade items the best though, so when Capree asked if I would guest post here, I immediately hopped over to Etsy to find some faves. (I’ve added a couple of fun DIYs!) Let’s take a look shall we?
If you’re familiar with Burt’s Bees natural personal-care products, you might be as stoked as I was to learn that the company is now producing a collection of natural, cruelty-free grooming and care products for dogs. Like Burt’s Bees’ products for humans, each item in the line contains a minimum of 95% natural ingredients, and there are no parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, sulfates, or synthetic fragrances to be found, which is good, because dogs do not like that stuff. (Right?) I’m impressed at how extensive the line is, including shampoos, dental-care sprays, eye wash, skin cream, tear-stain remover, and an itch-soothing spray. Burt’s Bees for Dogs is available at Petco and other pet specialty stores.

Modko, the makers of some of our favorite feline products, like the award-winning Modkat litter box, have branched out into doggy territory with the brand new Shake Dog Potty. This portable potty offers an innovative new twist to traditional pad trainers or pet relief systems, earning its name from its unique method of cleaning: simply seal it shut, add water, “Shake” and empty.
