  • Paul Mitchell for pets??

    A breed friend of mine told me someone gave her Paul Mitchell shampoo that's made for dogs. They call it John Paul I think instead. Has anyone used it or heard of it? Supposedely they don't make it anymore, but if it's as good as these people say it is, I think it would be a great addition to any salon/spa-type groomery. We're also wondering if it's the same as the human stuff, just labeled differently.

    I have been getting post cards from them for the past couple of months. They are looking for distributors. It is called John Paul Pet. They were at Intergroom and Hershey a couple of years ago. They even came out with a mobile grooming van, that carried all of their products. They wanted to sell to mobiles and shops that would carry and use their line exclusively. I think they may have given up on that, but I don't know for sure. I didn't pay much attention to their post cards just filed them in the circular file. The shampoos are made very similar to human shampoos and are not all natural. I had purchased several of them to try but then discovered they weren't all natural. Since I advertise that I only use natural products I didn't buy anymore. I was pleased with the way the shampoos worked though.

      I've used it. I had one lady who came to me with a bottle of the shampoo and told me that was the only kind of shampoo that wouldn't make her dog itch. She must not realize the stores stopped carrying that shampoo because she still brings those dogs to me (3 years later) and so far, she's never mentioned her dogs itching after I groom them.

      I really didn't think it was anything special. It smelled good in the bottle, but other then that there was nothing impressive about it.

          The woman who said it works great, has pointers, lol. So she wasn't the greatest person to get an example from since they don't have tons of hair to see how it works...she used the whitener and said it was fabulous. I'll have to see what my friend thinks of it now that she's used it.

            There was a big push on his products back a few years and I haven't seen or heard anything from them. I did try the dry shampoo that was in foam mousee form. It smelt good and worked OK but when I wanted to buy I had to get a case and dropped that idea.

              If I remember right there was controversy about John Paul Mitchell supporting PETA..... I don't remember the details, but a few groomers mentioned that.....

                They were also offering a John Paul Pet Mobile Salon. It was **very** nice but also very costly! I never tried the shampoo line because I'm very satisfied with what I use now and have given up on finding a better line I bet it did smell good though!

                  I just recently seen that shampoo advertised. I can't remeber if it was in one of the PetAge or Pet Business mags or if I got a postcard about it.
                  I've never tried it though.

                    On the "About Us" page at johnpaulpet.com, PETA used to be included in the following list of organizations he supports:

                    "John Paul Dejoria is a major supporter of "Last Chance for Animals" in addition to the National Humane Society and the Humane Society of the United States as well as the World Wildlife Federation. Additionally, Mr. DeJoria provides financial support to the California Wildlife Association which provides refuge for injured wildlife and to various local animal shelters. In 1998, Mr. Dejoria along with his daughter joined the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and together with Capt. Paul Watson and his crew stood on the ice islands in the St. Lawrence between the baby seals and the slaughter ships to prevent the clubbing of baby seals. For one week, they kept the slaughter ships at bay and saved 100,000 baby seals from being killed. He lends both financial and physical support to the "Sea Shepherd" and their continuing efforts to preserve and protect marine wildlife."

                    Several groomers from the GL sent emails to the company stating they would not buy his products if his website continued to endorse PETA. The company removed PETA from the "About Us" page within a few days of receiving those emails, but I don't know whether or not John Paul still supports the organization.
