Why we Choose Skout’s Honor

If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’ve definitely heard me talk about my two corgis, Biggie Smalls and Karma. In fact, you can follow them and all their cuteness on their IG page!

While corgis don’t typically have a lot of grooming needs, they still need attention to their nails and corgi glitter – aka they shed a lot! And while most don’t need more than an underbelly and booty fur trim, my husband and I still need to address some simple upkeeping in between their grooming appointments.

When Biggie was an only fur child (a far-distant memory now!), we pretty much used any dog grooming product, as he didn’t have sensitive skin. However, after getting Karma, we noticed she couldn’t handle all dog bathing products. In most cases, she would get dry skin after an at-home bath, and she would start shedding clumps of fur, which I could easily pull out, and see dry skin at the other end. Of course, after taking her to the vet, I was told Karma’s skin condition is environment-based, and she would need prescription shampoo – which can quickly add up!

I honestly can’t remember how we ended up finding Skout’s Honor, but I do know it started with their Probiotic Deodorizer Spray. We got the honeysuckle scent, specifically to use in between their grooming appointments and after a walk or a day at the dog park. What I initially loved about it is that it truly smells great! I spray it on both dogs and massage it in with my hands or with a gentle dog brush – Biggie loves being pampered while Karma will tolerate it.. for a few minutes.

Sometime later, I tried out Skout’s Honor’s Probiotic Shampoo and Conditioner and was shocked to find Karma wasn’t bothered at all! She didn’t have dry skin after her bath, and she didn’t seem extra itchy. And I knew it really worked well when I didn’t see any clumps of fur sticking out from her body. I was truly surprised Karma’s sensitive skin could handle the shampoo. From that point on, I made the decision to fully switch to Skout’s Honor bathing products on my dogs. The big plus for me was knowing that the brand has a variety of dog bathing and grooming products I could choose from, which meant I could trust Karma’s skin wouldn’t be irritated.

After learning how well their products work, I decided to sign up to be a brand ambassador with Skout’s Honor! And yes, we have a code you can use to save on their products: BIGGIEKARMA. And while we aren’t being asked (and we’re not being paid either) to specifically write this blog post, I wanted to share my genuine review on Skout’s Honor, in hopes of helping other dog parents navigate their pup’s skin issues/challenges. I truly believe the best brand partnerships come from true fans of the brand – and that’s what we are!

I haven’t tried all of their products (yet!), but I wanted to share a quick review on the rest of what we have tried:

  • Laundry Booster – Stain & Odor Removal Additive – We have a white comforter, and the corgis love leaving their dirty paw prints all over it. Normally have to keep this in the wash for a bit longer than normal to completely get the stains out. I noticed the Laundry Booster made a HUGE difference in keeping our comforter white. We used up one bottle pretty quickly, so I’d be selective on how you use it! Use with your regular detergent.
  • Urine Destroyer – A pet-safe stain and odor remover, so I feel safe when using it. The corgis don’t have many accidents these days, so I’ve only had to use it a few times. I’ve also used it on stains of my own doing, and yes, it’s worked well on both human-caused and dog-caused stains!

One new product line they recently released is oral care, and we are so excited to try out their Peanut Butter and Bacon Flavored Oral Gel! From the directions, it sounds easy and simple to use – just squeeze a bit of it onto their gum lines and watch them lick away. It’s said to help freshen their breath and fight plaque and tartar buildup. We currently use oral cleansing wipes from Amazon (they don’t smell yummy, so I’m sure they don’t taste yummy), so I know the corgis will find this gel much more appealing. I’ll be sure to shoot a YouTube review of it as well, so stay tuned! Subscribe to my channel if you’re not already!

Don’t forget, you can save on your Skout’s Honor order of $50 or more with our code: BIGGIEKARMA. If you aren’t sure where to start, or it’s your first time ordering from the brand, here’s what I recommend you start with:

This will get you right at that $50 mark to save with our code. Otherwise, I’d recommend switching one of the items out for something else useful, like dog wipes (dog wipes save us/the car after a messy dog park day), the oral gel (because clean teeth are important!), or the Prebiotic Pet Balm (we love balms for their paws!).

Oh, and another reason why we like Skout’s Honor? Their Paw Pledge: buy a bottle, feed an animal. Skout’s Honor will “provide a day’s worth of food to an animal in need with every product sold.”

I hope you and your pup(s) have a great day! <3
