Shady Dog Soap

Mom got a box in the mail a few days ago.  It was from Shady Dog Soap.   Oh no - this doesn't mean more baths, does it, mom?
See the pup on this postcard?   Her name is Lucie.    Lucie and her sissies, Addie and Hailey, used to blog a couple of years ago.
They don't any more.   We can keep up with them now on facebook.
Their mom, Miss Staci, makes these wonderful homemade soaps!
This is what Miss Staci says~~

It all started with a desire to create something. Something that could be useful. A creative outlet to get lost in with an element of danger.

A cross between chemistry and art, cold process soap is the chemical reaction between the fats found in oils combined with lye. Add some color and the design possibilities are endless. This process creates a gentle soap that is cured for 4-6 weeks producing a preservative free long-lasting bar.

We did the research. Meticulously formulated each recipe, choosing skin loving vegetable based oils for our canvas along with cosmetic grade colorants and clays as our paints.

Each small batch of handcrafted soap is generously hand cut by Staci. Each soap bar is creative and unique. Being naturally sensitive to scents, our soaps are gently scented with essential oils or phthalate-free fragrances. Our products are tested on humans, not animals. Just ask Lucie!

Lucie, our Border Collie/Great Pyrenees mix is our inspiration. Our heart dog. Every second we have with our beloved dogs is a blessing.


I can't even tell you how satiny smooth these soaps are and how wonderful they smell - good enough to eat - that's how good!
I am so relieved that this soap is not for me☺
Mom says that the soaps make her skin feel satiny smooth.   She went with the orange scented soap first.   No, she didn't come out of her shower smelling like an orange☺
 She sure does love her Shady Dog soap!
BTW, mom ordered 3 bars of soap and Miss Staci sent her 5 bars!  Thank you, Miss Staci.  That was so incredibly thoughtful of you!   Mom is a very happy customer!

Love ya lots♥


  1. pheeeww... it wasn't for you... I'm glad now too... but if it is good for the furs and the skin for your mom it is good for you too... happy humans makes super happy pups, right?

  2. Molly you have just had your bath so I am sure you Mom would not give you another, unless of course you came upon that skunk again!!! The soap sounds lovely. It is always so nice to find small businesses and support them. Have a lovely Monday. Hugs, Susie & Treacle xx

  3. We are glad the soap is mostly for people - tell your friend they should make poop or dead smelling dog soap. We could get behind that:)

  4. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh Molly the boxes are so pretty so I imagine contents are twice as nice. I know they must smell nice too.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  5. Molly we are thrilled that your mom is enjoying our soaps! Orange is her favorite. Our mom has been researching making dog soap or shampoo. We hope she doesn't crack that code! Hailey is the only one that enjoys a bath so she would be our tester :D

    BIG hugs with love
    Addie, Lucie and Hailey

    P.S. from Mom: Thank you so very much for your wonderful blog post! You are the sweetest! I'm so excited that you are enjoying my soaps. Give Molly BIG hugs and kisses from us.

  6. Our mom LOVES her Shady Dog Soaps! She likes how soft it leaves her hands -- and it doesn't dry them out like her other soaps! Personally, I like the way the Rose smells!
    Let's hope Miss Staci isn't able to come up with soap for us pups; I hear she's working on it.
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  8. WHEW! You dodged a baff there! Your title had me worried.

    PUppy Growls,

  9. We are breathing a sigh of relief for you that you didn't get a bath with that soap.

  10. Our Mom loves handmade soaps. She likes to stick one in the sheet cabinet so the sheets smell nice when she puts them on the bed. We try to avoid soap as much as possible.

  11. Wow! I thought for sure that soap was for giving you a bath!

  12. Glad it wuz for your momma and not you!

  13. Totally thought this was going to be bar soap for dogs!

  14. That was a close call! Our mom loves handmade soaps too. She says that she will look into Miss Staci's soaps. ♥

  15. For some reason the peeps love baths...those sound wonderful. Glad that package wasn't for you!

  16. What I just noticed the soap is from F.W. that is where I am!
    BTW enjoy the Ice Cream Sundae. You can have my nuts!
