It's An Eco Store USA Doggie Bloggie Give-a-way!

I was contacted by Eco Store to promote Eco-friendly products. I was told I could use them and provide a product review, or do a give-a-way.

I requested they send samples of their Eco Pets products, as Seger is always looking for skin soothing, environmentally friendly products for his manly-man golden retriever-gotta-get-hotspots skin. So, instead of using them, we are offering them up for a Bloggie Give-away!

so we have one Herbal Fresh Shampoo
Herbal Fresh Shampoo is expertly designed to penetrate safely into the skin where it is most effective. Mild enough for frequent use. Safe for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens over 6 weeks of age.

And if just offering the Herbal Fresh All Natural Shampoo wasn't enough, I also have the Eco Pets All Natural Leave-in Conditioner

So my bloggie friends, and a special shout out to those buds at CHAZ, just leave a message here, tell us why your wonderful canine would love these products, and Nash and Seger will draw for the winner on Nash's 8th Birthday, Monday February 16th! We will post the winner on Wednesday February 18th.

Then you try the products and let us know how you like them, eh?

Hello, I'm Juicy from Chaz. My dogs would be delighted to use these products! Especially my Pepe. We aren't sure what he's allgeric too, and switching to a corn-free dog food has helped, but he still licks himself which causes his white coat to stain red around his legs and bum area. Its hard to find a good shampoo to use without all those harsh chemicals that actually work! We're trying to 'Go Green' with all our products. Even the dog products, but its quite expensive doing so!

Even if we don't win me and my crew would like to wish Nash a special happy early bday! I know mself how much a special needs child brings so much joy and they're so caring too! See my brother is autistic, blind, and mute, but having him has truely been a blessing and we're so glad thats he's lived passed the doctor's expectation of 2yrs. old...he's 17 now! Hope Nash has many more bdays to come! Take everyday as a blessing that you have Nash in your life. And Seger too! Such cuties they are.

zoe would love this product because it came from a caring family who also loves dogs

Ashley said...

Kai, Brawt, and Nomi would like to give you, Nash, and Seger a big high five for promoting eco-friendly products.

I am working to switch the entire house over to 'green' products. I've tried a couple different brands of shampoo and conditioner and didn't really like them so I'm on the search again. Since the hound trio is bathed every other week (they price they pay to sleep in the big bed and go swimming) we go through lots of smelly good stuff.

If we are lucky enough to win we will be sure to pass along our reviews.

....and we would like to wish Nash a Happy Birthday!

CharmingDriver said...

Happy Birthday, Nash!!

And Sadie would love the 'hair products' because she is a huge fan of getting UNDER the house and coming out smelling....well. Not like roses, ha!!

Barb in TN said...

First, I want to wish Nash a very Happy Birthday. I hope he has lots of fun with Seger maybe helping to blow out the candles!

I'm Barb04 (Tennessee) from Chaz and my family (Max, Kona, Jake, Peanut, & Lady) would love to try these eco friendly products. It hard enough giving baths to 3 dogs over 125 lbs., but maybe the smell would make them love their baths more.

Again, Happy Birthday to Nash!

All 4 My Gals said...

Bambie would love the products because she is always looking for a way to pick up men on the farm behind us. LOL

Also I awarded you on my blog for your Valentine LOVE!

Willow said...

Hello! I hope Nash has a terrific birthday.

I'm sure that Nash and Seger can both agree that having a bath when you don't want to have one isn't any fun. So Chloe, my chinese crested, would like to try the products to brighten a bad (and necessarily weekly) experience.

Lucy, Harely and Zoro say....."We are Jack Russell Terriers and we LOVE to chase groundhogs into their baths are a regular [daily] occurance for us." "Products that are healthy for us and will make us look snazzy -until the next underground trek- would be a welcome prize!"

Thanks for putting us in your drawing.

Hi! It's AgilityPup from Chaz, and thought I'd pop in and enter.

I've got a GSD here who is a rescue, as soon as she came home, a bunch of health issues showed their ugly faces, she has skin issues, hotspots, allergies, and many other problems it seems. We're always open to trying new products to see if it can make the simple things for Bella, like taking a bath, easier on her skin.

Happy Birthday, Nash! Hope you have a great one!


Jennifer said...

Hi! I'm Izzy's Valkyrie from Chazhound and Izzy would love these products! We shop at a nearby specialty shop for dogs and would love to give them a great product to feature in their newsletter. Also! Izzy frequently has dandruff problems and a dull coat that we're trying to work on by changing her diet; the new soaps would only help her look her best faster! Izzy is also trying to go green and as natural as possible by starting on a raw diet and wearing "green" collars!

Justin, Izzy, and I would all like to wish Nash a happy early birthday and applaud all the awesome work you do with kids and dogs! We're trying to get involved in the volunteering side of service dogs as well as special needs dogs so you're a great inspiration. I have on autistic cousin and another with Down Syndrome so I know how great it is to find something to light up their lives like a dog which is why we're hoping to get Izzy into therapy dog training :)
