HOLISTIC GROOMING PRODUCTS for the healthiest skin and coat imaginable


THE M&J STORY Mother/daughter team of Mary Louise and Hannah Shenk had both become licensed estheticians when it occurred to them that their passion for creating original home products was aimed at an entirely different clientele—their dogs. Honing their experience and Mary Louise’s 15 years of study as she pursued her passion for herbalism, the duo began adapting their home made skin care products so they could be suitable grooming products for dogs. After tireless research and safe testing, the founders of M&J Dog Essentials discovered that their great smelling, all-natural products did more than just clean and perfect their dogs’ coats. The natural blends of herbal infusions and botanicals in their holistic dog grooming products resulted in two very happy, healthy and well-balanced canine consultants, Moe and Toby.

IMPROVING THE HEALTH OF ALL SKIN TYPES Along with a high-quality diet and plenty of exercise, routine bathing is essential for a healthy dog lifestyle. M&J Dog Essentials natural dog grooming products help to soothe skin discomforts, like itchy or dry skin, while promoting the optimal moisture balance for healthy skin and a beautiful coat!
