Spoiler Alert: New dogs rarely come home fully potty trained. The process can be a messy one as the learning takes place. Additionally, staying on top of a dog’s hygiene can be a timely and expensive thing. Fear not, there are companies out there who want to make life easier for dog owners. Let me introduce you!

Cowboy Magic

If you want a well groomed pup who will look fresh from the salon without spending a small fortune, then Cowboy Magic is for you. First created for their equestrian friends back in the ’70s, Cowboy Magic has expanded it’s clientele to include dogs and even humans! Yes, you read that right!

They have a variety of products to choose from, with each specializing in a different area of grooming maintenance. 

Rosewater Shampoo.
Start your dog’s beauty regiment with the sweet smelling Rosewater shampoo. It dissolves dirt and gently cleans your loved one, with just one small squirt! A little goes a long way with Cowboy Magic, meaning your dollar is stretched without limiting the quality delivered.

Rosewater Conditioner.
Next up in the beauty routine is the corresponding Rosewater Conditioner. It smells just as sweet, and easily scrubs out minerals, chemical build-up from swimming and product use. Better yet is the fact that it adds body in the process. Cowboy Magic products are allergy tested and dermatologist approved, meaning great results without causing complications. 

Detangler and Shine.
The Detangler and Shine is something you’ll be moving between your dog’s grooming supplies and your own personal vanity. With no alcohol or water added, it is able to shine your hair without drying it out thanks to a special silk protein. It detangles as you scrub it in and repels dirt, dust, and sand. These are all good things to repel if your dog spends any amount of time outside amongst the elements.

Super Bodyshine.
The aloe vera included in Super Bodyshine gives it a super concentrated, ultra effective remedy to boost full body shine! This is perfect for a salon quality look for the pets you love, whether they are heading to the show ring, a family holiday party, or simply want to look their best!

Greenspot Remover.
If your furry friend is already in your house, you know that there are embarrassing moments when her business gets stuck to her backside. Perhaps it happens when she is training in her kennel, or when she is due for a groom. Regardless of the reason, it always seems to happen when you don’t have time for a full bath. For these times, there is Greenspot Remover to melt away sweat, dirt, manure, urine, and more. This is great for on-the-go cleaning as you can use it wet or dry, and all you need to activate it is a damp cloth! The makers at Cowboy Magic were pure genius with this product!

From show dogs, to furry family member,s to curly haired kids, these products are 100% loved in the Mojitos and Munchkins household. Dog boards and canine support groups across social media boast constant comments about Cowboy Magic working miracles on matted fur coats and smelly dogs. Even Santa Claus himself supports Cowboy Magic!

FUN FACT: Puppies are said to be able to hold their bladders up to one hour per month of age. For example, if a new puppy comes home at 2 months of age, they should be expected to hold their bladder for approximately 2 hours. If a puppy comes to you at 4 months of age, they could hold it closer to 4 hours. Keep this in mind when setting realistic expectations for your new dog.
