Soap on a rope: Lather lovely

More fun, fewer fleas – upgrade the post-walk bath this autumn

Apart from the audacious claim on the box that “a clean dog is a happy dog”, The Loyal Canine Company’s Lucky Pup Dog Soap (£12) is genius. The soap on a rope is made of entirely natural ingredients, and its essential oils scare off ticks and fleas. The oil blend, so the manufacturer says, also relieves stress, although Wunderdog is not clear what stress a dog could possibly experience, being soap-massaged with gentle strokes before undoubtedly getting a post-bath treat.

The Canadian-made product contains shea butter coconut oil, alongside sweet orange, lavender, peppermint and cedarwood. It is free of paragons, petrochemical MPG, and produced cruelty-free and vegan. With less packaging than shampoo, this is one bath item you and your dog can probably agree on: it’s lather lovely. Buy it from Houndworthy.
