  • We’re Nominated for The PetQuip Awards 2015

    PetQuip Award Nominations for WildWash

    Exciting news! We’ve received word that are on the short list for Pet Quip Awards 2015 and in all following categories too. Hooray! The winners will be announced on September 27th, 2015. So, here’s to keeping our fingers crossed!

    1. Supplier of the year

    At WildWash as professionals, we have spent the last 10 years slowly and patiently developing what we believe to be the best pet shampoo and range of pet cosmetics in the World.

    We had a firm vision that the pet shampoo we wanted to make would be as good in every way as the highest quality human products available.

    We consider ourselves therefore, very lucky to have been introduced to and accepted by, an acclaimed independent boutique apothecary responsible for some of the finest human products ever produced in the UK and are also one of the top ten natural fragrance apothecaries in the world. They have embraced our project with a passion and in a sensitive and knowledgeable environment where products are still hand blended and stirred together in huge white vats, a diverse and holistic mixture of plants, botanicals and essential oils have been put together to create WildWash shampoos and cosmetics.

    As there are no regulations for pet shampoos in the UK we decided to put a full ingredient list using inci names and to the same EU cosmetic regulations that human person care products must follow. We have a policy to be as transparent as possible to our clients. Our products contain NO Parabens, Phthalates, Phosphates, Petrochemicals, Sulfates, Synthetic or Semi Synthetic Fragrances or PEG’s. Our products are ABSOLUTELY at no stage of development tested on animals.

    The range has proved itself to be worthy of our intentions with daily testimonials being received.

    “After nearly 3 years, loads of ££ and lots of products I’d like to post this comment:
    hi, without getting overly excited (much!)..my order of the sensitive shampoo arrived monday and my itchy little dog has had 3 baths since then (starting as soon as it arrived) and *touching wood*, the improvement is MASSIVE! His scabby areas have cleared up (where he had drawn blood with the itching) and in 5 days have only caught him scratching twice! No more nibbling, no more being woken up as he scratches next door and his coat is lovely. THANK YOU!!!!”

     

    WildWash is now used by professionals and pet owners all over the world.

     

    Our service does not finish at the effectiveness of our products. Our customer service and our aftersales service is very important to us. No query is too small and we work around the clock to satisfy the needs of our clients. We provide no end or information for our clients so that they are as knowledgeable as we are and therefore are able to satisfy their clients needs and requirements too. The following testimonials may help to show you our service:

     

    Joely Firkins – Mutz and Moggiez, Kent

    “Brilliant thank you so much, I am Very impressed with your companies customer service- it is unlike I’ve ever known before. Please pass on my thanks as everything was described in great detail, my friend and myself found it very interesting and informative, I’ve used 4 of the shampoos tonight and can only say how impressed I am with them, will look forward to doing business with you in the future.”

     

    Lisa Escombe – Dog Gromer, Grimsby

    I’ve just read your information sheets for the first time and I must say, they have changed the way I look at grooming shampoos etc. I’m converted. Lollie is a scruffy tart and went out with the ball thrower today so was green and muddy! I bathed her today in itchy and dry and there were several things that came to mind……

     

    * I usually dilute but think the shampoo needs to be stronger – I didn’t

    * when I bath dogs, the scent doesn’t last. I need perfume -I didn’t

    * Lollie has a thick wooly coat and takes a while to dry – she didn’t

    * my doodle stains green, brown and many other colours and takes at least two washes to get clean – she didn’t

    WildWash is now used by professionals and pet owners all over the world.

     

    Our success so far has been achieved by our wonderful products. We have never comprised on the quality of the ingredients used and we have remained loyal to our promise of NO Parabens, Phthalates, Phosphates, Petrochemicals, Sulfates, Synthetic or Semi Synthetic Fragrances or PEG’s.

    We have put in an immense amount of hardwork to ensure the success of this brand and we have huge plans to continue it’s growth.

     

    We are launching our muchly anticipated horse range and we are also launching our charity calm range for pets. The charity range is as honest as our products, (We cannot announce the name of the charity for marketing reasons – this is a very newsworthy deal and there will be a huge announcement prior to the launch) and a set amount per bottle sold will go directly to the charity involved.

     

    We have broken barriers and our range has moved into new territories outside the pet industry and we were awarded a finalist place in the Best New Natural Living and Home Product Award at The Natural and Organic Awards 2015. This was an immense achievement for a pet brand and just shows what an amazing crossover WildWash has made.

     

    Up till now our growth has been achieved by mostly word of mouth. This is again an amazing achievement and shows the power of the quality of our products. Our plans moving forward with an ever expanding product range is to now invest heavily into marketing and advertising to cement our brands future in the worldwide market.

     

    We are also currently awaiting to see if we have won the FSB London Business Awards 2015 as we have been awarded a finalist place for the second year in a row!

The video of this first bath is shown on our WildWash You Tube Channel. This campaign was just used on the cover of Total Grooming Magazine and received a wonderful response. We will continue to break barriers with our advertising to send our message to our customers.

     

    Our social media is very important to us and continues to grow. We have firm followers on Twitter, Facebook, Instragram, Pintrest, You Tube and our WildWash blog www.wildwashblog.co

     

     

  • A Dogs Life

    bis-amy-manser WildWash

    Our Norwegian Distributor – Twobarks – has launched Norway’s first lifestyle blog for dogs and their owners http://hundeliv.com/?p=1134

    We think the blog is totally on point and includes lots of valuable information. Twobarks are really focused on Natural Products and we are so happy to see WildWash doing so well in Norway.

    Don’t forget Premier Groom this Sunday 9th August. It is being held at The Kennel Club Buildings, Stoneleigh Park Warwickshire, CV8 2LZ.

    Premier Groom is an essential date for your diary as it is the ideal occasion to meet and chat with fellow groomers and industry experts in a relaxed atmosphere.

    They welcome anyone who has an interest in dogs, their presentation and preparation, and from those considering a career in grooming to those who just want to experience the atmosphere and enjoy spectating. Their competition classes are scrutinised by a selection of highly respected judges from the UK and abroad. These classes range from beginner/debutante to champion so there is something for everyone.

    You may not achieve a prize but what does await you is an exciting goody bag and lots of encouragement and praise.  Now well established on the grooming calendar for both UK and foreign competitors, Premier Groom offers seminars, demonstrations and also trade stands where you may be offered product promotions exclusive to this event. WildWash will be available to but at the Redcape Stand.

    Of course not forgetting the main event itself, with 89 competitors in the 2013 competition.

    This is a fantastic day planned by groomers for groomers and includes fund raising opportunities such as raffles and silent auctions.

    All proceeds raised from the event go to funding Groom Team England in the World Championships. For more information visit http://www.premiergroom.co.uk/
