Rivanna Ridge Soaps

Another new soap to benefit Service Dogs of Virginia!

This is a glycerine and 100% pure lemongrass essential oil soap.  Lemongrass essential oil is said to revitalize the mind and improve mental clarity!  Along with many other reported benefits - lemongrass oil also helps in repelling fleas and ticks!   A translucent shimmery grey with black and white soap 'spots' embedded in each bar (to mirror the coat of the pup this soap is named for!).  Lathers beautifully and smells wonderful.  If you have always used liquid soap to wash your dog you will be amazed how much easier bar soap is to use!   Has a stretchy wristband to help you hold on to it in the tub (or outside) and hang it to dry.  Available in three shapes for your dog - a bone, rectangular with paw prints or round with paw print.   Average weight 3.5 ounces.  

Schooner is a Great Dane puppy in training to be a service dog.  Schooner doesn't think that work should be his main focus - he would prefer to be a social director!  He wears his heart on his sleeve and uses it liberally.  Schooner lives in Maryland with his puppy raiser and dog trainer Laurie Luck of Smart Dog University.
