About Essential Dog – Natural Dog Grooming Products


Established in 2012, Essential Dog is an 100% Australian Made and Owned brand passionate about providing safer and natural alternatives for your dog with our Premium Natural Dog Shampoos, Conditioners, Deodorisers & Natural Skin Remedies.

After two years of intensive research we found the problem with the majority of grooming products on the market is the use of synthetic fragrances & sulphates which are highly irritating to a dogs skin and often cause skin problems such as dermatitis, allergies, itching, redness & irritated skin.

Our products were carefully developed using veterinarians, naturopaths, chemists & natural perfumers and we have released a range of revolutionary dog grooming products like no other on the market.  Unlike other natural dog grooming products on the market, we have formulated a natural shampoo that is thick & foamy without using sulphates and this is achieved by sourcing the highest quality ingredients commercially available without sparing any expense.

Our artisan aromatherapy blends are carefully crafted by Australia’s leading natural pet perfumer and were designed for their aromatic properties to promote bath time as a pleasurable & relaxing experience for dogs & their owners.  Our scents can be described as simply breathtaking.

Our entire product line is formulated to alleviate dogs with sensitive skin or skin allergies and our pH balanced products are as mild as water & will not strip your dog of its natural oils.

Aromatherapy

Essential oils are the most natural way to scent a product. Not only are they completely natural, they smell great and benefit both dog and owner to make bath time a pleasurable and relaxing experience. Our unique blend of oils provide a relaxed atmosphere during bath time and will give you a unique opportunity to bond with your pet. We source our therapeutic grade 100% pure essential oils from an internationally acclaimed Australian natural perfumery who specialise in pet products. Our supplier only sources oils of the highest quality and the purity and integrity of their oils are ascertained through gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. Please note our products are not designed for cats as essential oils can present problems for cats.
