This is our dog, Babe.

Natural Dog Care


If you are looking for natural wellness products for your dog, check out this formula I made for our dog, Babe! Because she is still a pup, she still has lots of puppy energy and it is a challenge to calm her down at night. We snuggle with her and apply 1/2 tsp. of this oil on her coat, gently massaging it in. She is relaxed and snoring in no time!
