This is going to be just exactly what it says>> A List! If you’ve been snooping on here long enough, you know that I tend to get a bit windy. So, for time’s sake, I will just list stuff here. In the “Reviews” and other sections, you will see highlighted products from companies I trust (and have researched!) added regularly. Until then, here is the start of a–hopefully–ever-growing list.
Firstly, here’s a link to an amazing tool for quick research on dog foods/treats companies: The Petsumer Report. The wonderful lady that created and maintains that tool also has a fabulously informative blog on anything to do with that industry, here: The Truth About Pet Food.
And for all recalls delivered right to your inbox, as well as more research on dog foods, sign up at: Dog Food Advisor.
I will provide a list of US dog food companies at a later date. *Please bear with us and keep checking back, as this is an on-going endeavor. For now, as far as other products…
Each of these companies I have personally contacted and find that they source and make “most” of their products from and in the US. Very few source exclusively from the US. We need to change that by pressuring our legislators to make changes and encouraging the better companies to bring all their business back home.
The links on the left take you directly to the company website. The links on the right are to my team’s reviews of some of their products. *NOTE: This is a work in progress, so check back weekly to see all the good stuff our team will be adding!
And for cleaning and bath time…
For years I used Dawn dish soap, the blue one, to bathe my dogs. Then I’d use a little of my own conditioner occasionally, before rinsing for the last time. But, folks, I gotta tell ya! I found something SO MUCH BETTER! Another dish soap, yes, but entirely plant-based, sourced and made right here in the USA.
I prefer using the dish soap mostly because it is gentle on their skin, gets and keeps bugs off, it’s multi-functional and less expensive than those outrageously priced, “specialized” shampoos for dogs. We’ll get into all that in another post, but to keep with our theme in this section–let’s choose US products for our cleaning and bath, for our dogs and ourselves!
Please contact me directly and we can chat about how to convert 🙂 Together we can make our homes, pups and Country better!
