The Fur Love – Skin & Coat Care for Dogs

Skincare for dogs and puppies, designed to nourish skin and restore moisture and shine to you pet’s coat. Specially designed in New Zealand, Fur Love have researched, tested and carefully selected the most effective, luxurious natural ingredients to maintain a healthy skin and coat – including coconut oil, hempseed, shea butter, omegas, and manuka honey. 

Treat dry skin with soothing antibacterial ingredients.

One of the more common emails we get is a request for products for dry skin.  We hear you.  But google “my dog has dry skin” and one will find many a gruesome picture.  We absolutely advise for severe skin ailments to be under veterinarian care.  But actually, simple dry skin in dogs is common, just like dry skin is common in humans.

The Fur Love product range is always focussed on nourishment and replenishment.  Many dog shampoos are solely focused on cleansing and therefore have astringent qualities which we found to be drying to skin and coat.  And somehow applying coconut oil or olive oil directly to the skin and coat does not sound so appealing. 

My beloved doodle does not cause allergies to human companions or contacts but unfortunately has a hat-trick of allergies herself.  One of these manifests as dry irritated skin EVERY time she is outside in the grass or after frequent bathing in the ocean.  We were advised to wash her every time she had been outside to remove allergens but even a simple rinse was leaving her smelling a little like a “wet dog” plus there nothing we could do to nourish the skin and coat.  

We knew we wanted to start with “something” packed full of the good stuff we put in our own hair for replenishment.  Hence our combinations are exactly that.  Packed full of amazing stuff – coconut oil, hempseed, shea butter, omegas, manuka honey.  These ingredients were chosen because they work.  They are antibacterial, soothing and replenishing. 

We recommend using our Fur Love manuka honey shampoo for sensitive skin and Fur Love coconut oil conditioning mask in combination.  You can wash as often as your dog requires with Fur Love products and rest assured your dog will still get compliments for a healthy looking coat. 

Wash first with our liquid gold shampoo.  It spreads beautifully and smells divine.  Rinse thoroughly and then apply the Fur Love conditioning mask generously throughout the coat, massaging and kneading into skin.  It has coconut oil, sweet almond oil and omegas so they moisturise actively.  Rinse after a couple of minutes.
