My journey began when I couldn’t find a commercial-based shampoo that my dog, Ellie wasn’t allergic too. Bath time was frustrating and upsetting to see her suffer from lesions and extreme irritation that would develop on her skin.
As a recreational soap maker, I knew most liquid shampoos contained many harmful and synthetic ingredients that were the culprit for her problems and knew there had to be a natural alternative. I began researching and experimenting with recipes and oils to create a shampoo that would be safe for Ellie’s skin but also deep clean and soften her coat. After many bars and lots of testing, Happy Dog was created! It was named for Ellie because bath time turned into a joyful experience and left us both feeling happy… and I was also happy there was no plastic bottle needed, which meant less waste!
I started sharing Happy Dog with friends and family who had dogs with different skin conditions and they were also amazed with the soothing and gentle nature of the shampoo and its cleaning power! They were surprised at how easy it was to bathe with a bar rather than juggling a wet, slippery bottle and they came back again and again . Soon my weekends were spent soap making.
With all the positive feedback and encouragement, I launched Cordoba Farms to create a line of natural, plastic-free, dog-safe shampoo. Each recipe was formulated based on Ellie’s “pack” and their specific skin and coat needs.
With the success of our shampoo bars and listening to our customers about the the need for more natural, plastic-free grooming products, we expanded our product line! We now offer balms, sprays and sunscreen which are carefully crafted with selected ingredients that are beneficial and safe for your dog’s skin.
Each product is made in small batches to ensure the highest quality. We only use ingredients that won’t irritate or dry-out your dogs skin while protecting their coat. And with our eco-friendly packaging, its the smarter choice for your pup and the earth. Try all our products and you’ll see why we love them so much. At Cordoba Farms we strive to make the best-quality, natural body care that your dog... heck the whole family will love!
