HOWND products now available in award-winning pet store

HOWND - the makers of ethical products for happy hounds - has announced that its full range of dog grooming products is now available at Scampers Natural Pet Store.

The company’s entire cruelty free range of conditioning shampoos, body mists, emergency dog wipes and natural fragrances are now stocked in Scampers Superstore in Soham, Cambridgeshire.

This deal with the award-winning retail outlet is another milestone for HOWND, which has become one of the UK’s leading premium brands for dog grooming.

“We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Scampers, which is without question one of the most reputable independent pet stores in the UK,” explains Jo Amit, co-founder of HOWND.

“As one of only a select few dog grooming brands to be certified by Cruelty Free International, we believe our products will be attractive to Scampers’ customers. Hopefully this arrangement will add to our already strong business growth - helping us advance new and ethical product development across a variety of pet applications.”

Piers Smart, managing director of Scampers, said: “We are delighted to have started our relationship with HOWND. We spent more than a year looking for right natural grooming range for our customers with all the right health and cruelty free credentials. We are already seeing the HOWND range gaining great sales traction with our very discerning clientele.”

In order to become certified by the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, companies are required to open their supply chain to monitoring and meet external audit requirements. The Hertfordshire company is the only dog grooming manufacturer in the UK to have such an accreditation.

HOWND’s range of 250ml conditioning shampoos consists of five products: Playful Pup Conditioning Shampoo, Keep Calm Conditioning Shampoo, Got An Itch? Conditioning Shampoo, Yup You Stink! Conditioning Shampoo, and Golden Oldies Conditioning Shampoo.

In addition, the company’s range of 250ml body mists consists of five products: Playful Pup Body Mist, Keep Calm Body Mist, Got An Itch? Body Mist, Yup You Stink! Body Mist, and Golden Oldies Body Mist.

Alcohol and paraben free, HOWND’s Emergency Dog Wipes contain 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.

HOWND has also created a range of natural fragrances for Him and Her. Butch Leather is the must-have cologne for discerning man dogs, inspired by the scent of warm soft leather and lush woods. With head notes of vetiver and cedarwood, this scent can lift dogs to new levels of refined masculinity. Peach Bum is the perfume of love and romance created for lady pooches. It’s a supremely feminine fragrance with heart notes of sweet orange essential oils, jasmine and peach. Both fragrances are free from harsh chemicals such as alcohol, parabens, soap and dyes. They are safe to use with topical flea products too.
