Why use natural dog care products

Just as humans have sensitive skin, so do our dogs. A dog’s coat has a naturally occurring balance of oils that regulate skin and coat condition.

Maintaining a healthy balance of these oils is important to your dog’s overall coat health. Harsh chemicals can destroy this delicate balance, stripping natural oils from sensitive skin, leaving it dry, itchy and damaged.

Our range of natural dog care products is intentionally designed to be gentle and to support this natural balance.

What you put on your dogs skin and coat is important, just as humans have sensitive skin so do our dogs. A dogs coat has a naturally occurring balance of oils that regulates the skin/coat, maintaining a healthy balance of this is incredibly important to your dogs overall coat health. 

Investigate your standard grooming product ingredient list and you will see acronyms such as: PEGS, SLS, SLES to name a few. It is our promise that we will never use chemicals such as: PEGS, SLS, SLES, EDTA & many more in our range.

Our commitment to sustainable business practices

We are committed to using only recycled materials in our packaging by making the conscious decision to use rPET sourced strictly from local Australian plastics manufacturers.

We acknowledge that recycling PET is not a perfect solution, and it does not solve the fact that once plastic is made, it is here to stay for a very long time. Finding a new life for these already-made products, however, is a step in the right direction.

"We love all the products in our pack. I use the Hemp Seed oil on a daily basis and his coat has gone to next level smoothness! A few followers have asked me why I use it and what it is good for. The organic paw balm is a joy to use and I love the subtle scent - it is part of our nighttime routine just like brushing our teeth!
Lastly with the Balanced Duo, not only does it smell good but I know it is not going to cause irritation nor cause any issues for his skin as I know it’s all made with natural ingredients.We absolutely adore you guys!"

Just tried the shampoo and conditioner on our Australian Bulldog (Kubrick). This product is so gentle yet effective. Kubrick smells great, he is super clean and the product did not cause any irritation. I would never use anything else. Highly recommend.

A customer review about The Hound Lab

Firstly I am so glad we came across your brand! Supporting a local Aussie business but also one with a focus on minimising environmental impact, producing animal cruelty free products and using natural ingredients is exactly what I’m looking for.

We love all the products in our pack. I use the Hemp Seed oil on a daily basis and his coat has gone to next level smoothness! A few followers have asked me why I use it and what it is good for. The organic paw balm is a joy to use and I love the subtle scent - it is part of our nighttime routine just like brushing our teeth!

Lastly with the Balanced Duo, not only does it smell good but I know it is not going to cause irritation nor cause any issues for his skin as I know it’s all made with natural ingredients.

We absolutely adore you guys!
