My sister, Karen and I, started Eco Dog Care in 2010 after ditching corporate America. We opened Eco Dog Care LA, offering cage-free daycare & boarding, self-wash and full groom services 7 blocks from Karen’s home in mid-city Los Angeles. But, we could not find what we wanted - a “green” product we could trust to do the job and be safe - so we created our own.
Being "green" doesn't mean compromise - our pups get dirty playing, running and hiking with us. They've got to get really clean and smell great. After all, they live with us -- on our couches, in our cars and on our beds (even when we're not looking). Our shampoos and other care products are eco-friendly -- all-natural ingredients that work well without phosphates, parabens, phthalates or other toxins on your pup, your hands or in the water supply. You can see all of the ingredients in each product on the label, grouped by the value they have for your dog’s skin & coat.
But toxin-free is just the beginning of what makes our products special. We've infused our base ingredients with unique blends of essential oils and botanicals so they are eco-smart, too. Our grooming products tap into the power of Nature to cleanse, soothe, heal and protect with ancient ingredients like Neem, Myrrh, Lavender, Cedar, Ylang-Ylang and Bergamot. Our natural blend can also repel fleas and other pests - stopping their hop on your dog before they can bite.
We were certified as a Green America business in 2014 and were recently invited to the Vegan Trade Council. This is especially meaningful to us because we're joining companies that share our commitment to eco-friendly products and practices and to the health of local communities. Our company donates services and products to rescues to make it easier for dogs to find their forever homes. We also support the 501c3 charity Kind Hearts In Action that is fighting the global battle against canine distemper. Learn more about their work at Save Dogs From Distemper. We must have a dog gene somewhere in our family because it's our brother, Ed, who leads this initiative. He almost lost his own beloved pup to distemper but found Dr. Sears and the serum that cured Galen. Ed has made it his life's work to spread the word (and the serum) to others, around the world.
