Passionate about organic themselves, mother and daughter, Karen and Kirsty Grace started looking for organic shampoos for their miniature dachshund, Pepe.
They were shocked by the chemicals in pet products. They just couldn’t find a natural, organic alternative they were happy with so they took matters into their own hands.
In 2016, they began developing their own shampoo, and then shared it with family and friends. More and more people wanted to try it, and before they knew it, their home-made, all natural shampoo hit the ‘Your Dog’ magazine Top Picks.
Since then, K9 Organics dog care products have been reviewed by some of the pet industry’s leading editorials and rated as “highly recommended”.
Kirsty and Karen still make the shampoo at home in Disley, Cheshire.
“When we’re making the shampoo, it’s like a little laboratory in my kitchen” said Karen.
But keeping things at home and hand-made means the mother and daughter team can stay in control of the products and the ingredients, making sure it remains as natural and truly organic as they want it to be.
Kirsty says “If we have a big order, we will send the shampoo out to be bottled, but otherwise it’s with us for the whole process”.
K9 Organics shampoo leaves the dog’s coat incredibly soft and in great condition. Because it’s gentle, it’s perfect for frequent use – if you have one of those mud loving mutts. It doesn’t strip the coat of the important natural protective oils, like many standard pet shampoos. The lavender and mint shampoo is a brilliant natural flea repellent without all the nasty chemicals.
“It’s really about knowing that we’re not doing any harm to our dogs and pets by subjecting their skin to what are basically harsh cleaning chemicals” said Karen.
“We pride ourselves in sourcing the best natural components for our products. All K9 Organics shampoos are made with over 98% certified organic ingredients and are 100% chemical free”.
All inspired by one little dog called Pepe.
“We have a total passion for dogs. Pepe is one of our family. In fact, he’s the real boss of K9”.
The shampoos definitely have Pepe’s stamp of approval, particularly as his soft shiny coat gets him lots of attention these days.
K9 Organics’ mission is to provide great, effective organic products so dogs and their owners can live a healthier, cleaner way of life with products that literally don’t cost the earth.
We’re absolutely delighted to welcome K9 Organics as one of our sellers. We have a few of our own mud loving mutts so we’ll be sampling the shampoo.
