DOGZ and DOGZ natural pet care: A Personal Mission
The inspiration behind DOGZ and DOGZ natural pet care products is a real dog – Spencer.
Spencer is a 10 year old German Boxer Dog with a darn cute wrinkled face. Just like my previous Boxer Dog Giacomo, he developed a dry, cracked nose at an early age, which needed special care due to the constant exposure to sunlight on Mallorca. In addition, he preferred to lie on the cooling floor tiles, which gave him elbow calluses on all his joints. I also started to take care of his paws early, as we walked a lot on hot pavements or on sandy beaches, so his paw pads got really dry and stressed.
After I got to know and appreciate the healing and nourishing power of Organic High Quality Olive Oil , the idea to develop completely natural care balms for my dog came into being. It all started with a Dog Nose Balm.
So I can proudly say ” my dog care products are tested on a dog” and considered absolutely sensational.
OUR POWERFUL INGREDIENTS
We use only the finest ingredients from nature and blend them in a way that has the most benefit. We leave the rest to nature.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (olea europea) from the Mediterranean island Mallorca, Spain
The olive was native to Asia Minor and spread from Iran, Syria and Palestine to the rest of the Mediterranean basin 6,000 years ago. In the past several hundred years the olive has spread to North and South America, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is extracted by non chemical, mechanical means, and without the use of excessive heat. This unrefined Oil is loaded with vitamins and acts as a natural moisturizer that penetrates deep into the skin, providing needed moisture as well as a shield that protects the skin, keeping it smooth. Extra Virgin Olive Oil has magical anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Calendula Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Calendula officinalis, also known als “pot-marigold” has been used for centuries. It’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties combined with it’s hydrating and mildly antiseptic and anti-fungal qualities, makes it well suited to treating symptoms associated with sore, eczema and dermatitis.
We at Dogz and Dogz produce our own Inusion from dried Calendula petals and our wonderful Extra Virgin Olive Oil. For the production we use the cold infusion method (which lasts up to 5 weeks). This is usually the preferred method, because it protects the delicate calendula from being damaged by heat.
