HOWND named in Independent's 10 best dog grooming products
HOWND’s latest ‘Cruelty Free’ product innovation has been named as one of UK’s best dog grooming products by the Independent newspaper.
The Hertfordshire based company - created by pet loving duo Mark Hirschel and Jo Amit - recently released Yup You Stink! Emergency Dog Wipes and has subsequently received positive reviews from retailers, customers and the press.
Perfect for cleaning mucky dogs on the go, the Independent listed HOWND’s emergency dog wipes as number two in its 10 best dog grooming products list and said:
"From rolling in fox poo to tramping through mud, if there’s a stink to kick up, you can guarantee a dog will find it. When it comes to removing the offending substance, these antibacterial wipes rise to the challenge. With odour-controlling ingredients, keep them handy in your bag, car or by the front door to keep unwanted whiffs at bay."
Alcohol and paraben free, each pack of emergency wipes contains five jumbo size (30cm x 20cm) PH-balanced wipes. Designed to be gentle on a dog’s skin and coat, each wipe is infused with orange (insect-repelling), coriander (antioxidant) and bergamot (deodorising) essential oils, aloe vera juice, and gentle odour control agents. The result is a durable wipe, that effectively cleans off fox poo, cow dung, mud, urine, slobber and anything else that’s grimey or smelly.
Yup You Stink! Emergency Dog Wipes are available to the trade in 10 pack cases with prices starting at £16. The RRP per pack of wipes is £2.95.
“It’s fantastic that our wipes have made this national list, but what’s even more important to us is the opinions of our customers - which again have been overwhelmingly positive. Our intention was to create a set of wipes that are light, compact, yet won’t tear in the dog owner’s hands. Most importantly, they had to be kind to the dog’s skin and coat, while being capable of providing a gentle and effective clean while on the go,” explains Jo Amit, co-founder of HOWND.
“One wipe should suffice to cover the body of most stinky dogs out there, but those which are especially grimey might benefit from a bath and spritz with Yup You Stink! Conditioning Shampoo! and Yup You Stink! Body Mist later in the day.”
