Well my  puppy certainly can pong a little and he has taken to loving horses, now if it was the horse itself, this would be a good thing,  but to put it delicately its more about what the horse leaves behind on their morning canter! He steps in it pounces on it, sorry if you are squeamish but he does enjoy a nibble too. Whats left is a stinky hound that nobody wants to go near.

I have to be careful with what I wash him in as he was a rescue pup and came with sore patches on his skin, every part of him seems sensitive  inside and out what I put on him and what he eats can give him problems (apart from the horse delicacies it seems). So when Zum told me about their  natural, handcrafted products for dogs I gladly hold my nose while I typed yes!

Alfie and I trialled the Zum Yum Wash it contains Citronella, Lavender and Cedarwood pure essential oils. Made with 95% organic oils.
I love the description and had to share with you a pic of Alfie on only his second bath in his new home and it looks like he was ready for it.

It smells yummy and was easy to apply, made a nice lather that did not take an age to remove. I had a fresh smelling puppy in minutes and he enjoyed the experience too.

For inbetween baths as he is getting quite large to lift, the Zum Yum Mist Doggy Spritzer is a great chance to spruce him up, again all natural ingredients means I am not spraying him with anything that will irritate his skin, if he licks at it, it will do no more than maybe tatse a bit funny. He has not tried to lick the spritz off and for Alfie that is pretty unusual.
Here's a little insight into the mind of a dog. "Oh look, there's some trash...I should go dig in it. Hey, is that squirrel poo? That would be especially awesome to roll in..." Hence, the Y.U.M. (Your Untidy Mutt) line!

Mixed and mashed with 100% pure essential oils and other dog friendly jujulicious ingredients, Zum won’t settle for anything other than 100% natural, 100% zumlicious and each dog cleansing product is perfect for pampered pooches with sensitive skin.
